Fill your bag with ice and add in cold water, you may find crush ice works better for you. Place the bag on the area of fat you want to freeze. Then you can relax and watch tv or read a book, keep in mind applying the cold bag will be uncomfortable at first but overtime will not be as sensitive. This should be done 1 – 3 hours a day.

During coolsculpting you should keep track of your skin temperature closely. When using some type of temperature sensor will make sure your skin is at the right temperature for freezing the fat. When using a diy coolsculpting keeping the ice water on your body should take 1 – 3 hours, taking your skin temperature every 15 – 20 mins, skin temperature will range from 31f to 54f.

Coolsculpting is not a replacement for diet and exercise. It may take 3 – 4 months to see any results and if you are larger results may vary on thickness of fat. Coolsculpting at home may not have the same results as getting it done by a professional.
