What happens during a coolsculpting chin fat session?

During your Coolsculpting session the applicator is carefully positioned and strapped into place. Once started your skin will being to feel very cold for the first few minutes before going what is described as going ‘pleasantly numb’.

You may experience a little discomfort during your session which should last around 35-45 minutes.

You will have to keep your head in one place with pillows helping you get comfortable.

After the fat freezing part finishes, your practitioner immediately massages the area to help break up your fat which has now crystallised. This optimises cell death.

How long do chin fat results take?

For a few hours afterwards your skin may appear pink. Your body will then go to work metabolising the damaged fat cells over the days, weeks and months ahead.

After ten days you should gradually begin to notice results. A month later you should keep seeing improvements. Your body is still removing fat from your session.

Full results should be realised after 3-4 months although your body will still produce results for up to 6 months.
