RECOVERY FROM COOLSCULPTING
Since downtime is minimal, recovery from CoolSculpting in Santa Rosa, Sonoma County is usually simple and easy. Unlike surgical procedures, where the fat is gone instantly, it actually takes about 6-8 weeks for fat cells damaged by CoolSculpting® to be gradually removed.
The most common side effects following CoolSculpting® are temporary—minor bruising, soreness and numbness of the area. The amount of soreness experienced really depends on the person, but for most patients, it is not enough to cause significant problems. A patient may have numbness or soreness for a longer period of time, but prolonged side effects are considered rare.
Most patients can expect to go back to work the day after the procedure and can even get back to activities a few hours after having the procedure done.
