Last month I told you I was going to give CoolSculpting at Slim Studio in Buckhead try, so now it’s time for an
update on how the procedure went! I mentioned that I was nervous – and that didn’t really change on the day of
the procedure. I had some butterflies in my stomach when I walked in the center. I think that’s totally normal
considering I was about to spend the next few hours getting, literally, frozen. Turns out, I had nothing to be
The Coolsculpting machine, while a little intense looking, is really just a vacuum-based applicator with
cooling panels. It’s placed on the skin, then the vacuum is activated, and it freezes our fat cells to the
temperature that kills the fat without harming the body’s water-based cells (which we don’t want to mess with.)
Easy as pie, right? Pretty much.

That isn’t to say the entire thing was comfortable. Before the proceed, I was tucked into a nice bed and
surrounded by fluffy pillows and blankets. I LOVED this part. Then my CoolSculpting Specialist placed a very
chilly gel pad on my over the area we were treating. The pad was there to protect my skin from the freezing,
which is obviously very important. Once the pad was in place they attached the first handset. It felt like
someone stuck a high powered vacuum again my skin…which is exactly why was happening. At this point, I did start
to feel a bit of dull pain as the handset became firmly attached. The discomfort went away after about 10
minutes when the skin fully went numb. They repeated this process on the other side of my body and made sure I
was as comfortable as possible before I settled in for an hour while the machine started working its magic on my
The great thing about Slim Studio is that the environment reminds me of a spa. They were constantly checking on
me to make sure I was as comfortable as possible. I could page them at any time, and there were plenty of snacks
and drinks within reach so I was perfectly content. I was even able to get some work done on my computer and
watch movies while the procedure was taking place.
I would recommend Slim Studio to anyone who is even a little bit nervous about the procedure. They make you
feel incredibly comfortable and confident. After 60 minutes, my treatment specialist came back into the room and
detached me from the machines — and I felt a brief pull. This next part is crazy… the handset left behind a
solid mass of hardened fat —my treatment specialist called it the stick of butter — underneath my skin, where
the handset had been. She massaged the butter stick (I’ll never look at one the same) to break up the ice
crystals, which was the most painful part of the entire procedure. But the pain was manageable. I didn’t cry
out, I just didn’t enjoy it. The skin went right back to normal once the massage took place. That was the end of
the treatment. I cleaned up and went back to work. Literally no downtime in my day. I did experience some
numbness and tenderness right off the bat, and she let me know this might last a couple days, but it wasn’t
painful and didn’t slow me down.
Again, I’m not going to say the procedure was super comfortable or that it felt like a message. But I will say,
with the results, it will create it was 200% worth it. And I would do it again in a heartbeat. Stay tuned for my
post about the weeks following…and the results! Can’t wait to share them!
