What Happens During a CoolSculpting Procedure?
When you arrive for your procedure, a medical professional will review and mark the area(s) being treated. A protective gel pad will then be placed on the surface of the skin and excess fat will be pinched into the CoolSculpting applicator. You should not feel pain, only some pressure and suction for the first few minutes of the treatment. After that, the target area will become numb to the cold. The treatment will last roughly 60 minutes. Since there is little else you can do, naps are advisable as is watching a movie on your device or simply catch up on wrk emails.
After the procedure is over, the treated area will be red, and for many, look as if there’s a hard lump of butter underneath the skin; this is the fat that’s been sucked up by the applicator. Your provider will massage the site, and the lump should dissipate quickly. As this is a no-downtime procedure, you’ll be free to continue with your regular activities right away.
