Karen’s CoolSculpting® journey – part 2

By Karen Seddon, Skincare Advisor

On my quest to become a stronger and healthier mama, and rock that little black dress in time for the holidays, I recently had my first CoolSculpting® treatment with Angela and am now 4 weeks in! By the way, if you missed the first part of my Coolsculpting journey, including the treatment itself, you can check out Part 1 here.

Here’s my progress report in the weeks following my treatment:

Week 1 after my treatment:

The initial discomfort (due to inflammation of the tissue) is gone! The treated area is still feeling quite numb but I’ve been assured that this is totally normal. It generally takes about 1 to 2 weeks for the swelling to subside. The numbness can take longer to resolve, especially with the larger abdominal applicator, which Angela used on me.

Overall I am feeling good and can’t wait to see results!

Week 2:

I’m feeling fantastic! No tenderness at all! While the treated area still feels quite numb, this is totally normal and not bothering me. I’m not seeing physical change yet, but know that this can take up to 8 weeks. Patience is a virtue, right?

Week 4:

I am starting to notice a change in my abdomen! I thought it was all in my head, since it’s only been 4 weeks since my CoolSculpting treatment, but my mom pointed out how much trimmer I’m looking. My co-workers have also mentioned they’re noticing some change. It must be working! Music to my ears! I took 4-week progress photos with Angela and was pleased to see that it’s not in my head. Holy smokes I can see a real change already! Both Angela and Jeannie are very happy with my results so far. I can’t wait for my 8 week photos!

Stay tuned for part 3 of my journey coming in a month …
