Aesthetic Medicine, Dermatology and Bariatric Surgery


You probably heard about Fat freezing, the latest treatment that helps you to achieve your aesthetic goals. It freezes stubborn fat off your body. You may have heard many miracles about Cooltech fat freezing, and since it is a non-surgical procedure, you want to know if it causes any pain.



How Fat Freezing Works?

Fat freezing, also known as “cryolipolysis,” is an FDA-approved procedure that involves freezing fat cells that can not be eliminated with exercise or nutrition. There’s no need to go through a knife! This aesthetic treatment is non-invasive.

As your body gets used to stubborn fat removal, discomfort may come and go. However, Fat freezing could not be completely free of some side effects. While it doesn’t cause severe or long-term pain or discomfort, some possibilities exist, such as the procedure’s cold or “cooling” effects. Before starting your session, you can search for these side effects and discuss them with our Tijuana dermatologists.

Does Fat Freezing Cause Pain?

Discomfort from fat freezing appears during the procedure. Our Tijuana dermatologists say that it is possible to feel slight pain from the numbness caused by the cooling effect of its freezing applicator. It is also possible to feel a light pinching as fat is frozen; such effects can last just 10 minutes or less of the hour treatment time. 

After your Cooltech session, you might feel swelling or, in some cases, itching, but it is short-lasting.


Does Fat Freezing Damages The Skin?

Cooltech – fat freezing doesn’t damage your skin, but as previously said, numbness is common. According to many aesthetic medicine specialists, it can last some days. Severe pain has not been reported in a formal medical setting.

Some side effects after the procedure are:

  • Bruising
