I am 2 weeks post op CoolSculpting. Should areas treated be red and hot to touch?

This Q was submitted to Dr. Gerrish but initially treated in another clinic

Redness and Hotness after CoolSculptingFollowing CoolSculpting it is considered normal to experience transient numbness, bruising, soreness, and mild warmth in the treated area. It is however unusual to experience redness and hotness at the 2-week mark. I have seen patients with a post-treatment course similar to yours as a result of mild panniculitis (an inflammatory process of the fat layer) following CoolSculpting. I recommend a follow up with the treating physician for an accurate diagnosis.
