Stubborn fat doesn’t have to keep you from your hard work paying off. You’re a healthy weight, you eat a nutritious diet and work out regularly, but you still have an embarrassing roll of fat on your tummy or a muffin top that hangs over the waistband of your jeans. For years, the best option you had for removing that extra, unwanted fat was liposuction, a surgical procedure that required a few weeks downtime. Wouldn"t it be great if you could reduce those problem areas without the traditional methods like diet and exercise?
Like liposuction, CoolSculpting is only concerned with removing fat from the body. CoolSculpting in Duval County, Florida is meant to refine your body by helping you target areas that have proven too stubborn to tone with diet and exercise alone. It’s a non-invasive procedure that uses patented cooling technology to freeze away your fat cells and get rid of them forever. As with any procedure, you’ll want to consult with a plastic surgeon before deciding if the treatment is right for you.
How does CoolSculpting in Jacksonville, Florida work?
CoolSculpting® technology enables us to precisely target fat cells beneath the skin, and cool them to temperatures that trigger their natural death. A vacuum-assisted hand piece draws in the fat area between two cooling plates. Over time as the treated fat cells shrink and die, your body naturally metabolizes them, eliminating these dead cells, and leaving a more sculpted you. CoolSculpting results are long-term, as treated fat cells are gone for good. Developed by scientists at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, it"s the only FDA-cleared fat freezing technology.
On the other hand, liposuction is extremely painful, requiring narcotics/pain relievers and a significant time off from work.
How long does each session of CoolSculpting in Duval County, Florida take?
A session lasts only 60 minutes, making it quite possibly one of the best-used hours of your life. You should not feel pain, only some pressure and suction for the first few minutes of the treatment. Some practices even have multiple CoolSculpting systems and applicators, so it’s possible for a patient to have multiple areas treated at once. The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. Once the treatment cup is removed, your skin will be red, cold, firm, and shaped like a stick of butter.

When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment. Several months after your treatment, your body will still continue to flush out fat cells. However, during your consultation, we can discuss a treatment plan that will meet your own specific needs.
As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable. While the fat that was destroyed during the CoolSculpting treatment won’t come back, it is possible for the remaining fat cells to expand if you eat a high calorie diet or stop working out. Here are some things you could do:
- Take more walks – move more
- Exercise daily
- Eat healthy foods
- Drink plenty of water
