HB: How does this treatment compare to others of the same nature?  

There are not many treatments that use a freezing technique, most of the devices on the market from fat reduction involve radio frequency which is heat or ultrasound waves. Both usually require multiple sessions to achieve the same result as one session of Coolsculpting. 

HB: What does recovery look like?

There is absolutely NO recovery time. You can go right back to your daily routine. You may experience some numbness and maybe some soreness depending on the area and the patient. These usually resolve within a few weeks.
