Is the Coolsculpting procedure painful?

I think I am a good candidate for CoolSculpting from what I have read to date. My only concern is how painful the treatment itself is while it's being administered and whether or not there is any pain following the treatment. I'm not a big baby but I am also not a big fan of pain!

Coolsculpting uses "freezing" technology to reduce adipose cells.  When the applicator is applied and then activated it will initially be VERY cold - however the area will quickly go numb and therefore will not hurt.  Typically patients do not report any post procedure discomfort.
