If you’ve decided to move forward with a CoolSculpting® treatment, you’ve likely already done your research and you know that there’s little to no preparation required of you before treatment. After all, some of the greatest benefits of CoolSculpting® are that it’s a noninvasive, low maintenance and easy approach to reducing the fat in your body. Still, there are a few things you should know before you go for a session so you’re best prepared for treatment.
Stop taking certain medications
Unless you’re taking anti-inflammatory medicines like Advil or Ibuprofen for the treatment of a medical condition, you should consider not taking the medication before your session. Slight bruising can occur as a result of the procedure, and taking anti-inflammatory medication leading up to it can increase the chances of that happening. However, it’s important to always consult with your doctor before discontinuing any regular medication.
“Jot down questions as you think of them.”
Prepare a list of questions
If it’s your first treatment, you’ll have some time at the beginning to consult with a professional who will answer any questions.. Use that time to ask all of your questions and address any concerns you might have. At Ideal Image, we value our guests’ comfort and understanding. It’s crucial to fully understand the benefits of treatment and what to expect before, during and after a session. The more you know, the better equipped you are to achieve your best results.
Spend time during the days leading up to your treatment researching the procedure and jotting down questions as you think of them. If you educate yourself beforehand, you’ll be able to have a better conversation during your consultation.
Bring something to keep you busy
Many guests read a book or do work while they receive their CoolSculpting® treatment. If you’re having multiple treatments done, it could be upwards of two or three hours. You’ll want to make sure you’re doing something productive, even if that’s just listening to music and zoning out for the duration of your treatment.
