CoolSculpting is an easy, noninvasive procedure that freezes and destroys fat cells. The treatment is pain-free and uses no needles, no incisions, and no anesthesia. Therefore, it’s very easy to prepare for your CoolSculpting session in the Philadelphia area. You won’t have a long checklist of instructions to follow before your appointment, but there are a few things you should do to prepare.
Write down a list of questions.
Before you actually receive the treatment, you’ll have some time to ask your CoolSculpting professional any questions you have. Whenever you think of a question about the procedure, jot it down on your phone or in a notebook, and go over every question with your professional. You should fully understand how the procedure works and what will happen during and after the session. Even if a question seems silly or insignificant, you should ask about it during your appointment. The more knowledgeable you are about the treatment, the better your chances are of achieving great results.
Avoid certain medications.
Anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen can increase your risk of bruising during or after the procedure. Unless you need to take an anti-inflammatory medication to treat a medical condition, try to avoid it in the days leading up to your CoolSculpting session. Your CoolSculpting professional will tell you if you should take or avoid any other medications before your appointment.
Find something to keep busy.
CoolSculpting is completely painless, and you’ll be awake during the treatment. Most people like to read a book, get work done, or do something else to pass the time during the CoolSculpting procedure. If you’re getting multiple treatments, your appointment may last two to three hours. You’ll get bored just sitting around, so you should bring a book, headphones, your laptop, or something else that will keep you busy.
