These ice wings have a soft less-intense side and a colder blue side. You can choose the intensity that suits you best. Most people like to have multiple ice wings so there is always one ready to use with their Buzzy. In a Healthcare setting these wings can be disposed or given to the patient.
Not for Multi-Patient Use. See Healthcare Grade Ice Wings for Multi-Patient Option.
- One (1) Personal Use Soft-Sided Wing or 100 Pack.
Ice wings freeze solid so that they don't absorb any the vibration from the Buzzy M-Stim device. Each ice wing when frozen solid will remain frozen for about 10 minutes.
Work with either Healthcare or Personal Buzzy Mini and Buzzy XL

Wings work well with Buzzy to reduce pain. They last a long time.
Thank you for this feedback, Denise!
We get a lot of questions about why the ice packs are designed the way they are (e.g., why don't they last longer, why aren't they bigger). For most needle procedures, 2 minutes is sufficient for ice numbing - you actually don't want to go much longer because you could reduce the inflammatory response that vaccines are going for. Ice is activating c-fibers, which in turn activate descending noxious inhibitory control. This is a fairly fast reaction. We find 30 seconds is sufficient for the C-fiber activation, and 2 minutes is sufficient even for Humira or burning injections.
Continued good luck to you and thank you for using Buzzy!
Looking forward to trying it out!
Thank you, Susie! We recommend folding the ice wing along the center line for storage in the freezer. The wings that come with personal Buzzy kits have a soft side that may feel slightly less cold. Always begin with clean, fresh wings from the freezer. Wings must be frozen solid to work optimally. Slide the wings through the elastic band or onto the hook. For patients under 6 months old, patients with cold sensitivity, Raynaud’s or sickle cell disease, use Buzzy without the wings. The child can hold the ice pack in the hand to provide a competing sensation.
I use it when I get my shots
