Will a steroid injection affect my CoolSculpting results?

I had Coolscultping a week ago now and my rheumatologist had to give me a steroid injection today. He gave me a general injection into my buttock to help with the pain all over. He was insistent that I had it but I’m now worrying that it will affect my results!

Although there is no way to know for sure, as there is no data on the topic, this steroid injection is unlikely to have an effect on your Coolsculpting results. In any event, you were wise not to compromise your health and your regular medical treatments for Coolsculpting, which, after all, is a cosmetic procedure.
