- Under your jawline
- Under your chin
- Bra fat
- Back fat

How Does CoolSculpting Work?
The cold applicators get placed on the area or areas that you and your doctor have decided to target. Then, you sit back and relax while they freeze your fat cells.
You and your doctor will work together to create a custom CoolSculpting plan for your body goals. On the day of your procedure, the process is as follows:
- Your provider applies a clear gel pad to your treatment area to create a barrier between the cooling panel and your skin. When the applicator adheres to your skin, you may feel a sucking sensation.
- During the procedure itself, you sit back and relax. You can be on your phone, chat with your nurse or anyone in the room, watch TV, or do anything as long as you remain seated.
- Your provider briefly massages the treated area after the applicator gets removed. The massaging breaks up the frozen fat cells to boost fat reduction!
- You can go back to your regular day! Most patients experience little to no discomfort after the procedure and have zero downtime.
CoolSculpting can take as little as thirty-five minutes. But, if you treat multiple areas, it will take longer.
