Have you decided to have CoolSculpting to get rid of a few fat bulges that you can’t shift with diet and exercise? If yes, you may have heard that CoolSculpting is a well-tolerated, comfortable procedure but you’re still wondering: – Is CoolSculpting painful.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that uses controlled cooling to freeze away unwanted fat cells, and sculpt the body. It can totally transform troublespots such as the tummy, upper arms, thighs, and love handles. A single CoolSculpting treatment reduces 20-25% of fat cells.
Is CoolSculpting painful?
The targeted area is very cold during the first few minutes of the CoolSculpting treatment, and then goes completely numb. Patients often say that CoolSculpting feels similar to having ice packs on the skin, but don’t think it’s painful at all.
Some patients use the treatment time to read, answer emails, or work on their laptop.
Discomfort after CoolSculpting is minimal. There is typically some swelling, as well as numbness in the treated area that can last up to 3 days (click here to learn more).
How CoolSculpting works
The CoolSculpting applicator is placed over the targeted area and the vacuum feature pulls the skin and fat into the device, and then freezes the fat cells.
The treated area is massaged immediately after CoolSculpting to help break down the fat cells and improve results. Over the following days the fat cells that were exposed to the cold temperature die, and are eliminated by the body. The elimination process takes 2-3 months.
