Is it normal and common to get a burn from CoolSculpting?

What could cause burn? Will it leave a scar? Does it still freeze the fat?

No, it is definitely not normal to get a burn after a Coolsculpting treatment. Coolsculpting uses freezing technology to destroy the fat cells in the area treated, so there be no area of heat to cause a burn. I have heard of people using inferior technology having “frost-bite” after a treatment, but I must stress that this was not the original Zeltiq Coolsculpting technology. Coolsculpting has a “freeze-detection” technology safety feature, which ensures that the area treated does not go below the minus eleven degrees. If you think that you have a burn I would advise you to seek medical attention immediately.
