Concern following treatment

Here in the USA, we use the "CoolSculpting" system which freezes fat cells.  I'm guessing the "lips freeze" you're referring to is a similar technology.  Nonetheless, since you have a concern with skin tissue it's best to see your provider for an in person follow-up as soon as possible to be on the safe side.

Hope all goes well for you, Doc Halliday

Urgent consultation

It is possible that it is not related to Coolsculpting.  Skin infection is a possibility, one that should be addressed as soon as possible by seeing your doctor.

Hard Frozen Area

I don't know what "lips freeze" is - if it is an off-label form of Coolsculpting.  Coolsculpting does not leave a hard frozen area.  I suggest you consult an expert in Coolsculpting to evaluate the area.  Best, Dr. Green
