CoolSculpt, upper arms. Is there any pain during the procedure because a nerve is in the arm?
Doctor Answers 7
Coolsculpting may be painful anywhere it is performed because nerves are everywhere in the body.
Proper patient selection, applicator placement, and procedural details are essential for not only good, but safe, results. While many patients experience some discomfort with Coolsculpting, arms or no more painful or dangerous than other areas of the body. The key is to select an experienced practitioner. Best wishes!

As long as you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting in the arms and have the procedure done by a well-qualified practitioner who has experience using the machine on the arms, you should be fine. There should not be an extra amount of pain or discomfort due to the location; you may experience numbness in the arm and fingers, however. I recommend having an in-person consultation with a board-certified dermatologist who is familiar and comfortable with off-label CoolSculpting uses to discuss your goals and concerns.
Coolsculpting and the Arms
Coolsculpting can best done successfully with the upper arms. Special care, as always, must be done with applicator placement. Please consult an experienced board certified dermatologist for the best cosmetic results. Best, Dr. Green

Coolsculpting and Pain
There isn't any pain during the procedure since the freezing also has a numbing effect.
You may be numb in the treated area up to 6 weeks from the procedure.
There is minimal discomfort (no pain medication necessary) for about a week or 2.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
best of luck!
