So it’s been one week since my CoolSculpting treatment at Clinic Aesthetic in Brisbane. It was pointed out to me that I could experience bloating and swelling in the treated areas, as well as a numbing sensation. I was also advised that I may experience a whole lot of different sensations like deep itching, tingling, tenderness, pain, cramping, diarrhea and muscle spasms.
Yes I did get some of these sensations, more trips to the loo, deep itching, some tingling and cramping and very tender to touch the treated areas. Hugs from my kids are at that exact spot of where I had my treatment – around my waist – and sometimes they would come out of nowhere and give me a huge tight hug and it hurt!! I had to say “mummy’s tummy is sore” and the response has been “are you sick?”. I did explain at one point that I had had a treatment to freeze my tummy and sides but they got confused and went on to hug me anyway – LOL.
It was too sore to go for a run last week so I was only walking but yesterday (day 6) I actually ran 4km’s and it was fine. It is really good to keep up the exercise and healthy diet after the treatment as my body is detoxifying all the fat cells that were frozen and now dead. Keeping my lymphatic system flowing!
I still look the same as I did a week ago but I am bloated and a bit sore, my tummy is quite firm to touch and I look slightly pregnant and have only been comfortable in loose clothing. I did wear my jeans the other day but I didn’t last long in them as I was too tender. It’s not until the two to three week mark when I should start seeing a change and my best results should be at the three month mark.
Bring on week 2!
