So, now for the post treatment update two weeks later. First, after the CoolSculpting treatment, I noticed that the skin where the treatment was felt colder and somewhat numb. Again, no pain, just a little cold and numb. This is because the treatment actually FREEZES the fat cells - they actually die, are absorbed and disposed of by the body! Now, at about two weeks out from the CoolSculpting procedure, the skin does not feel cold at all, and most of the numbness is gone.
Regarding what it LOOKS like, the skin IS smoothing out and the dimpling is reducing. There is still some dimpling there that will continue to disappear over the next couple of weeks. The great news is that once the fat is gone, it's permanently gone. It will NOT come back.
Now, that doesn't mean I can go splurge on ice cream sundaes, or stop exercising and eating right. It DOES mean that if I put on weight, it will be distributed evenly across my body, not targeted right back at my thighs. That is GREAT news, as I can continue to take care of other trouble spots through exercise!
I do hope that if you need some help with your tummy, love handles, or thighs, you will take advantage of the complimentary CoolSculpting consultation at Vitality Skin & Body, conveniently located right off of the 101 and Shea Blvd. in Scottsdale, Arizona. I can assure you that I am really glad that I got all the information I wanted on the procedure in advance from the helpful medical staff, made an informed decision, and then went through with the procedure. It really has met my expectations, as do the wonderful staff at the Vitality Skin & Body medical spa.
