I tried Cool-sculpting and here’s what happened...
Let’s rewind. So, what exactly is Cool-sculpting? Cool sculpting is an FDA approved fat freezing body procedure kills up to 25% unwanted fat cells. I wanted to tackle this stubborn chin fat that just won’t go away. I had to hit up my favorite places HerMD to see if this was a good option for me.
The procedure was not painful at all, you feel a slight tingling sensation then cold. Results can be seen in a couple weeks or more, so stay tuned. I chose to try this procedure because its less invasive, only takes 45 mins for each treated area and I was told I was a great candidate for it.
