Safety Precautions Before Treatment
If you are taking any amount of aspirin on a daily basis, it may be appropriate to continue to take it under medical supervision and with the treating practitioner’s knowledge. However, if you are taking aspirin purely for prophylactic reasons, it should be discontinued for 7 – 10 days before Coolshaping2 treatment.
Vitamin E, Ginseng, Garlic tablets and Gingko Biloba should be discontinued for two days before a procedure.
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents, such as Motrin, Ibuprofen, Advil. Celebrex, Nuprin, Feldene,
Alcoholic beverages such as beer, wine and liquor is recommended to be avoided prior and after to the procedure.
Wear loose, comfortable clothing on the day of their Coolshaping2 procedure (and bring a change of clothes). There may be post-procedure swelling, and as the numbness wears off, you may be aware of some discomfort in the treated area. Trousers with tight waistbands, belts, and other restrictive clothing should be avoided.
If you experience pain after treatment, Extra Strength Tylenol (or similar) can be consumed as long as you do not have any contraindications to its usage. Avoid NSAIDS and Aspirin until the day after Coolshaping2 treatment. You should expect some discomfort after the procedure; however, if this becomes intolerable, you should contact your practitioner for advice.
Since the Coolshaping2 procedure is non-invasive, you may resume normal activities immediately. However, activities which may raise body temperature, such as using a sauna or vigorous exercise, should be avoided immediately following a treatment.
You should see results as early as three weeks after treatment. More dramatic results should be apparent after two months, and improvement should continue for a further two months or more. The body will continue to flush out the fat cells for up to three months, so improvement should continue through that time period. The result of Coolshaping2 treatment is the elimination of the treated fat cells. It is important to maintain a healthy regimen of diet and exercise in order to enjoy the full long-term benefits of treatment.
