Because it is completely non-invasive, CoolSculpting is a comfortable procedure that requires no anesthetic. There are no lasers, injections, medications or needles involved during a CoolSculpting treatment.
You will lie back while the device is placed over the area you want to target for fat reduction. The device is turned on, exposing the fat cells to the intense cold. These cells crystallize and die, and the body begins its natural work of disposing of them, just as it would any other dead cells.
For the first few minutes of the CoolSculpting procedure, you will feel some pressure and intense cold. This feeling soon dissipates, and you can fully relax, read, scroll through your work or do some emails. Many patients like to indulge in a rest or nap during their treatment.
There is no downtime or recovery period after CoolSculpting. You can get right back to your day and enjoy all of your usual activities once the treatment is over.
