CoolSculpting Chevy Chase: 3 Cool Facts You Should Know About Fat Freezing

The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise.

CoolSculpting technology safely and effectively targets the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself unaffected.

The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting—so you’ll look great from every angle.

Check out five facts you should know about the revolutionary fat freezing procedure, CoolSculpting.

  1. Does CoolSculpting Hurt?

According to New Beauty, the CoolSculpting procedure usually does not hurt.

For the first few minutes, as the cooling begins, you may typically feel intense cold. This soon dissipates.

According to Zeltiq, the area generally goes numb within 5 to 10 minutes during treatment. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their CoolSculpting treatment.

After the treatment, you may feel some tingling as the area is massaged for 2 or 3 minutes. Patients are usually able to return to normal activities following their appointment.

  1. How Is CoolSculpting Different From Kybella?

Kybella, which is manufactured by Allergan, is an injectable prescription treatment.

Kybella chin fat treatments involve 30 injections per treatment area per session (and patients typically need 2 to 4 sessions).

If a patient needs numbing injections to reduce the pain of Kybella injections, that adds more needles and more injections. Some patients may experience throat swelling after Kybella treatments as well.

The CoolSculpting procedure is a non-invasive procedure, which means there are no needles or injections—ever!

CoolMini is the new FDA-approved attachment for Coolsculpting which is designed to treat the chin. While Kybella can certainly be a good option and show great results, CoolMini is perfect for patients who dislike needles.
