What to Expect During Coolsculpting™

  • A specially designed applicator cup will use gentle suction to draw your tissue between the cooling panels (for treatment of the outer thighs, the applicator is positioned with Velcro scraps).
  • During the first 1-10 minutes you may feel temporary discomfort because of the suction, pressure, and cooling. After that time, Coolsculpting™ is generally very well tolerated. No topical or general anesthesia is needed.
  • Depending on what area is being treated, you may be positioned lying flat or sitting up. Most patients read, listen to music, work on their computer, or simply sit back and relax and watch a movie on our office ipad.
  • Procedure time generally is 1 hour per side treated (the exception is that the outer thigh is treated for 2 hours per side). Most patients choose to treat both sides on the same day for symmetry although you can schedule appointments on different days if needed or if multiple areas are being treated.
