On the day of the treatment, the areas to be treated will be marked and photographed. Then the treating consultant will apply the gel pad and applicator to the area being treated. Suction may be used to pull this fatty layer up and rapidly cools in the location to ensure the discomfort is only for a short period of time. This can vary from person to person. During the treatment, you can just relax, and lie back and enjoy some down time to read, watch a movie etc. Afterwards, patients will often return to normal activities.
