Temporary markings are made during an assessment to precisely place the applicator on the targeted area. This will be experienced as a mild tugging sensation as the tissue is pulled into the applicator. The cold sensation follows which is experienced as a tingling or mild ache. You soon become numb in the treated area for the remainder of the procedure, which is typically 35 to 45 minutes long. While CoolSculpting is performed, you can easily sit back and relax as your body gets rid of stubborn fat. When the treatment is finished, the applicator is removed and a 2 minute vigorous massage follows to help enhance the effectiveness of the treatment.
