Have you heard about coolsculpting? If not, it is a procedure that can help eliminate unwanted fat and cellulite.

If you’re about to have a coolsculpting procedure and want to be sure it goes well, you’re in the right place. Keep reading to learn all the steps you should take to prepare!

Prepare for Cost

Obviously, if you have scheduled an appointment, you’re probably aware of the cost. If you’re still on the fence though, be ready to spend some money.

Small, isolated areas like the abdomen or chin will cost less, typically somewhere around $800 or $900. If you’re looking for larger procedures covering more than one area, the cost will go up. Contact us for our pricing.

How to Get Ready

To have a safe and successful procedure, it’s important to take some simple steps for the few days right before your procedure.

Medication

Stop taking or limit your dosage of any medications that thin the blood. These can include aspirin, St. John’s Wort, and more. Thinner blood makes you more likely to bruise, which can impact how quickly you heal and how quickly you see results.

Before stopping any medication, remember to consult with your doctor.

Avoid Skin Damage and Sun Exposure

Be mindful of the area you will be treating. Try to avoid any damage like bruises and scrapes. If you do accidentally injure yourself, consider holding off on the procedure for a few weeks.

Likewise, avoid excess sun exposure; tanned skin can be more sensitive during the procedure.

Diet

Be mindful of how you eat leading up to the procedure. A body fueled by nutritious food will heal faster and respond better to the procedure.

If possible, try to quit smoking. This habit can impact healing and increase recovery time.

The Day of Your Coolsculpting Procedure

The big day has arrived. What last minute preparations do you need to make?

Be sure to wear loose clothing that won’t irritate the treatment area. Don’t wear any tight, fancy undergarments either! Also keep in mind that the gel used during the procedure could get on your clothing.

Ideally, eat a light meal that will give you the energy to last throughout the appointment.

Bring something to entertain yourself with during the procedure. A book or iPad can be helpful, as appointments can last anywhere from 1 to 3 hours.
