CoolSculpting is a state-of-the-art fat diminishing treatment designed to sculpt and mold your body by freezing tough fat without surgery. CoolSculpting employs cryolipolysis technology to freeze fat cells so they can be removed from the body to reveal a leaner silhouette. At Southside Dermatology & Laser Cosmetic Center in Jacksonville, FL, under the careful guidance of board-certified dermatologist Dr. Mary Pentel, we use CoolSculpting to help you attain your cosmetic goals. Call our office today to schedule a consultation and learn more about this innovative procedure. We look forward to serving you!
candidates for CoolSculpting
Although this procedure has proven successful for both women and men, those most likely to benefit from CoolSculpting:
- Are at or near their ideal weight
- Struggle with difficult areas of fat that do not respond to natural weight-loss efforts
- Don't want or aren't good candidates for more invasive procedures
- Understand realistic expectations for the outcome of their procedure
Once Dr. Pentel has completed your initial consultation and designed a custom CoolSculpting treatment plan, we'll schedule your appointment. On the day of your treatment, we'll have you lie comfortably on your back or stomach and place a gel pad over the target areas. From there, we'll apply the CoolSculpting applicator to your skin to deliver the cryolipolysis technology. During this time, you may experience coolness and a slight tugging sensation, but these sensations are usually very tolerable and do not cause excessive discomfort. The applicator will be passed along the target sites until the entire area has been treated.
after your appointment
Since the CoolSculpting procedure is nonsurgical, you can expect to return to your normal activities following your session. Side effects of CoolSculpting often include swelling, bruising, stinging, redness, and discomfort in and around the treatment site. These symptoms are short lived and usually fade in the hours and days after your treatment. You can expect to notice results within three weeks, with the most impressive results appearing 1 – 3 months following your CoolSculpting procedure.
