CoolSculpting is a very safe (FDA approved), nonsurgical procedure which eliminates fat cells from your body through cryolipolisis. The most prominent side effects of this technique are minor and occur just around the treatment spot. The majority of side effects reduce within a few days after the procedure.

Forever Slender MedSpa in Wayland, Massachusetts has two CoolSculpting machines because we want to reduce the amount of time you need for treatment by treating two areas at the same time. CoolSculpting is an effective non-surgical body-contouring technique used on areas like the thighs, flanks, abdomen, back, and buttocks.

If you’ve heard about CoolSculpting and are interested in coming in for the procedure, you may be wondering if the treatment is uncomfortable or painful.

CoolSculpting patients generally describe their experience more as uncomfortable than painful, though some patients do experience pain. During the first few minutes of treatment the patient experiences a tugging sensation when medical suction is used to keep the skin in place between the device’s cooling panels. The 2-3 minute massage following the procedure is often the most uncomfortable time as fat cells begin to die.

Coolsculpting pain is primarily experienced during the procedure itself. It’s possible to feel pain from the numbness caused by the cooling sensations from the freezing applicator used during the procedure. You may also feel slight pinching and pulling sensations as the fat cells are frozen and pulled out. Such effects may last between 5 and 10 minutes of the 60-minute treatment time.

After the procedure, you might experience pain along with itching and swelling. The level of pain felt can also vary between treatment areas, with the abdomen being the most vulnerable. CoolSculpting is extremely comfortable and thus does not require anesthesia. This is because the procedure is extremely comfortable and free of any pain. Patients can relax, taking the time to sleep, read, or use mobile devices.
