As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you may typically feel an intense cold feeling in the treated area. This soon dissipates. With some of the applicators, you will feel some pulling as suction is applied on the treatment area. The treatment area generally goes numb within 5 to 10 minutes into strating the treatment. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their CoolSculpting treatment.
Most patients say that the massage after the treatment is the most painful. You will feel some tingling sensations and throbbing as the area is massaged for 2 or 3 minutes.
