During the procedure, you may feel pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. But don't worry; these sensations will subside as the area becomes numb.
After the procedure, you may experience typical side effects such as redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, skin sensitivity, and numbness. It's normal for numbness to persist for several weeks.
If you had submental (under the chin) treatment, you may feel a sense of fullness in the back of your throat. However, these effects are temporary and generally disappear within days or weeks.
