You bet, and what I have been told so far is this: NO wrapping is required (unlike liposuction, where one must wear a pressure garment/wrap for
weeks). That is one of the things that I find appealing about the CoolSculpting procedure - we shall see if it turns out to be true or hype.
I had lipo done on my inner and outer thighs two years ago, and I was stuck in the pressure garment for soooo long! I hated wearing the thing!!!
Plus I had that surgery days before I started a new job, and starting a new job while concealing a pressure garment (like very heavy duty, tight and
uncomfortable lingerie, that you can not remove when it becomes uncomfortable and must sleep in) beneath your work clothes, makes you feel really odd.
For background - I am continuing to refine issues I have already addressed through other means, including YEARS of hard work with weight loss, diet
and exercise, breast aug, and lipo. I worked with a Trainer for four years in my twenties, and culminated all the hard work by competing in a Figure
competition. I am older now, and have a high stress job that allows less time to dedicate to fitness, but I still continue to work on my body. I
work out and run, 4-5 days a week.
So on to the next treatment, and let's see how it works. I really like that this is supposed to be non-invasive with no down time. It makes it so
much easier to schedule.
You can treat the next area immediately following the first treatment. The only limitation seems to be that they can only do one area at a time. So,
for example, I want two treatments on my tummy - since each session is 20% fat reduction, and I think I will be happiest with a 40% reduction.
I could do these two sessions back to back or weeks apart, that doesn't seem to matter, however, they recommended doing it back-to-back, to get all
the soreness over at the same time..
Similarly, for my other two sessions, that I paid for but have not yet scheduled, I plan to use as one for each buttock. I was hoping they could do
them at the same time, but as it turns out, there is only one machine, and it has only one nozzle, with different heads for the different areas, so I
will be scheduling this in two sessions, probably either Thursday or Saturday, but it will be done in two, one-hour, back-to-back sessions, the first
hour on one buttock and the second hour on the other.
