If you have ever wished that you could get rid of fat in one certain area of your body, you are certainly not alone. Many people have that little stubborn pocket of fat that doesn’t seem to go away despite all of their efforts to exercise or diet it away.

With CoolSculpting in Jacksonville Beach, FL, you can be one step closer to achieving your ideal body contour. At Laser Skin Solutions Jacksonville, you can come and relax in our soothing environment while we target that stubborn fat and get rid of it for good.
What Causes Stubborn Fat?
While some people have the good fortune to store fat exactly where they want it, giving them curves in all the right places while keeping other areas flat and toned, most of us aren’t as lucky. As individuals age, gain weight, or go through other body changes such as pregnancy, fat can begin to collect and cause bulges in areas such as the abdomen, back, thighs, or under the chin.
Trying to target these areas by losing weight or by exercising can produce very unsatisfying results. Some people have overall weight loss that affects areas where they would rather keep fat such as their hips or their face while still retaining those stubborn bulges. What treatments like CoolSculpting do is provide fat reduction right where you want it while leaving other areas alone.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a fat reduction therapy that is designed to destroy fat cells in a very targeted location. As a non-surgical body contouring treatment, it comes with very little downtime and can be done without anesthetic.
CoolSculpting can offer dramatic results for many people who are looking for a way to reduce fat. CoolSculpting reviews online show that many people would undergo the treatment again and recommend it to other people.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting works by freezing unwanted fat cells. This is a process known as cryolipolysis. During treatment, the fat is chilled to a temperature that causes the fat cells to die. Once these cells die, your body metabolizes them. These fat cells are permanently destroyed and will not return once they are gone which makes CoolSculpting a long-lasting, permanent treatment as long as you maintain your weight.
Where Can CoolSculpting Be Used?
CoolSculpting is a versatile treatment that can be used in a variety of areas. The main criteria for treatment is that the area must have pinchable fat that is able to be suctioned into the applicators. We use CoolSculpting for the belly, flanks, chin, bra rolls, arms, thighs, and more.
What Can You Expect From CoolSculpting Results?
It takes time for the dead fat cells to be eliminated by your body once you have had the CoolSculpting treatment. You can expect your CoolSculpting results to gradually appear as time goes on. Typically, patients can begin seeing results after two months with results gradually continuing for several more months.
The CoolSculpting Treatment Process
During a CoolSculpting treatment, a gel pad will be applied to your skin and then the applicator will be placed on the area. You will feel a vacuum sensation as pinchable fat is sucked into the applicator. Then the device will begin to cool the area. The area will feel cold and you might experience some stinging, cramping, or aching as the treatment continues. However, as treatment goes on, your tissue will become numb which can cause these sensations to lessen.
During the treatment, you can relax, check your phone, read a book, or do any other activities that can be done while laying down. Treatments can take 30 minutes or more.
CoolSculpting is a no-downtime treatment which means you can return to normal activities after your appointment is over. You may feel some soreness and have redness in the area which are both normal after CoolSculpting treatments.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
Sometimes one CoolSculping treatment is enough to achieve the results that you are looking for. However, other patients need two or more treatments before they are happy with their body contouring results. We will touch base with you after your treatment has a chance to take effect to reevaluate whether any additional treatments are needed. If you do want more treatments, we typically wait at least one month before scheduling another treatment. This gives the body time to eliminate the dead fat cells.
Is CoolSculpting a Weight Loss Treatment?
While CoolSculpting for the belly or other areas is a great way to get rid of stubborn fat, it is not a weight-loss treatment. If you are losing weight, your doctor may advise you to wait until you are close to your goal to have CoolSculpting performed. Instead of helping patients to lose a significant amount of weight, CoolSculpting takes those stubborn bulges that can be left even after weight loss and slims them down for a more shapely contour.
