Eliminate Stubborn Fat
CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical, safe and effective way to reduce areas of unwanted fat. The body contouring procedure targets localized pockets of stubborn fat resistant to diet and exercise efforts.
This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA and Health Canada-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate fat.
How CoolSculpting Works
The phrase “freeze your fat away” is an accurate description of how the CoolSculpting treatment works: The technology utilizes a precisely controlled cooling process that targets the fat cells underneath the skin.
Cryolipolysis occurs when the treated fat cells are crystallized or frozen, then die. Your body will naturally process the fat and remove the dead cells, what’s left is a reduction in the area treated.
CoolSculpting has been clinically proven to reduce body fat in these areas:
- Submental fullness or double chin
- Abdominal or ‘belly’ fat
- Waistline fat – flanks, ‘love handles’, ‘muffin tops’
- Inner and outer thigh fat
- Underarm bulge
What to Expect
Your CoolSculpting session will be performed while you are comfortably positioned on a treatment bed where you are able to read, rest, watch a video, or even work – although we suggest taking the opportunity to relax!
The applicator will be placed over the target area. You will experience a pulling or tugging sensation as the applicator is placed over the treatment area followed by an intense cold feeling which dissipates over a few minutes. The CoolSculpting treatment is approximately one hour in duration, but the exact length will vary on the number of areas being treated during your visit.
After your procedure you can return to your normal activities. There is no downtime or any notable side effects. Some individuals may temporarily experience redness, tenderness or numbness to the treatment site.
The slimming effect of the CoolSculpting treatment is gradual, with fat reduction results taking effect between three and eight weeks. Your body will still flush out fat cells for up to four to six months after your treatment session.
To achieve optimal results, more than one CoolSculpting treatment may be needed.
