Now introducing CoolSculpting!
Many men and women can lose weight and achieve their desired silhouette. However, certain areas of the body can be difficult to target with diet and exercise alone. CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that is cleared by the FDA to treat visible fat bulges. The treatment uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists diet and exercise. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting. Over six million CoolSculpting® procedures have been performed worldwide and here at North Florida Aesthetics, we make sure to stay up to date on all training and certifications to help you look great from any angle.
Candidates for CoolSculpting® are typically looking for a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Good candidates for the procedure have noticeable fat bulges in certain areas but are at a healthy weight and are not experiencing any health problems. CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss procedure (unlike weight loss surgery, such as gastric bypass). A customized treatment plan will be developed for you during your consultation appointment.
Recovery and Results
There is no downtime associated with CoolSculpting®, and you will be able to resume your regular activities immediately after your procedure. You may experience skin sensitivity or a slight aching in the treatment site, but these symptoms typically resolve on their own within a few days. You may see initial improvement in as few as three weeks. The most noticeable effects are typically visible in approximately two months. Your body will continue to flush out fat cells for several months after your treatment. Many patients report a 20 to 25 percent decrease in fat in the target area. CoolSculpting® results are long-lasting, and the fat cells are destroyed permanently. Patients should follow a healthy lifestyle and avoid significant weight gain to maintain their outcome.
How It Works
The fat deposit being treated will be drawn up between applicators by a gentle suction mechanism. You may feel a pulling sensation throughout your session. The controlled cooling begins, and the frozen fat cells are crystallized and destroyed. Your body then eliminates the dead fat cells as waste. Your CoolSculpting® session can take as little as 35 minutes and up to two hours, depending on the size and number of treatment sites.
