I had CoolSculpting done to my outer thighs yesterday. By the time I got back home, I was hardly sore and now there is only a dull ache. No itching, tingling, numbness, and not that much or no swelling (non that I can notice). Did I just get lucky or is my body too resistant to the treatment/ the treatment isn’t working? I went to a very professional well-reviewed and certified office to get this done.

The applicator used for treating the outer thighs has a drastically different post-treatment course than the traditional CoolSculpting suction applicators. In general, the outer thighs have less swelling and rarely bruise. Itching and tingling, if you are to experience it, usually happens several days after the treatment. You should expect to see the beginning of your results in 4 to 8 weeks.
