I just had 4 treatments for my abdomen over a 4 hr period. You can tolerate the procedure, however, by #4, I was ready to stop. The most discomfort I experienced was during the 2 min post area massage. Sorry, but it is painful. However, once stopped, it stops. I am 24 hrs post treatment and I have discomfort, tingling and increased sensitivity but not a real pain. I recommend a spanx for support after it if you want support. It helps. Now I wait for my results over the next 8 weeks. Time will tell on the results.
How much are the treatments?
3000 for 4 areas of the abd
I tried to get cool sculpting done today, and the pain became so unbearable at about the 6 minute mark that I had to ask them to stop the procedure. I was really disappointed. I have fibromyalgia and chronic pain issues. Would I be a good candidate for Sculpture? And if so, what is the name of your proactive in VB? Thank you.
Deborah. Im really sorry to hear about your Coolsculpting experience. You are not the first person I have heard this from. You certainly could be a candidate for Sculpsure, though people with chronic pain are generally sensitized to any stimulus and can be challenging for any procedure. Sculpsure has different levels of intensity and also the ability to deliver what is known as a cool shot, which greatly enhances patients comfort.
What are the precautions for women who want to get this service? After baby or planning to get pregnant?
Fortunately Sculpsure is safe for women and all skin types. If you are actively trying to get pregnant, it is best to wait until after delivery before undergoing any cosmetic treatment. This is true for Sculpsure as well as any other elective cosmetic procedure.
