Coolsculpting® is a non-surgical answer to spot fat reduction.  If you’re reading this, you already know that, but you want to know more about what’s required from you before going to your first session.

This blog covers how to prepare for a Coolsculpting® session.  While there’s not that much you need to do, there are several key steps to take to ensure your results are all that you envision.

Let’s find out what you need to do before visiting Ethos Spa, Skin and Laser Centre for your first Coolsculpting® session.


Unless medically necessary, you shouldn’t be taking any anti-inflammatory medications (ibuprofen) prior to your visit.  Also, be aware that herbal preparations containing St. John’s Wort or fish oil should be avoided, as well as aspirin, as these have the affect of thinning the blood.

If you’re taking anti-clotting agents following a surgical procedure, you should wait until you’ve completed your prescription.

Medications like these can exacerbate potential bruising from the treatment.

What Would You Like to Know?

Many of our guests at Ethos Spa have a lot of questions about their therapy.  Be sure to take the time to jot down any questions which may occur to you before coming in for treatment.

Educating yourself about Coolsculpting® is part of going into the treatment fully apprised of what to expect.  As you research its benefits, keep in mind that you’ll be able to ask your technician questions at the start of your session, so come prepared.

At Ethos Spa, we know that informed guests are empowered.  They know what to expect and they understand how their treatment works.  That makes our jobs here so much easier.

Take Care of Yourself

Coolsculpting® kills fat cells by freezing them.  When the cell membrane is destroyed by the cooling technology used, fat is released into the body and eliminated.

That said, Coolsculpting® is not a weight loss strategy.  It’s a spot reduction therapy which targets stubborn areas which haven’t responded to nutritious eating and exercise.  If you feel you need to lose a little weight, doing it before your Coolsculpting® journey begins is the best way forward.

This revolutionary spot reduction treatment is most effective on people with active lifestyles and a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 30 or under.  Your results will be so much more satisfying if your body is properly prepared.

Bring a Positive Attitude

At Ethos Aesthetics + Wellness, we know that the better you feel abut the treatment going into it, the happier you’re going to be with the results.

That means not only managing your expectations but understanding that you’re giving yourself a very special gift.  Attitude is everything, so bring your best to your Coolsculpting® session.

Ethos Spa, Skin and Center

Ethos Spa is an aesthetics facility governed by a Board of medical professionals.  We bring you the highest level of medical cosmetic treatments available, coupled with exacting standards informed by stringent medical ethics.

We look forwarding to joining you on your Coolsculpting® journey!
