Use CoolSculpting® to reduce stubborn fat without surgery

How does CoolSculpting® work?
Have you ever wished you could “zap your fat away”? CoolSculpting® does exactly that. This US FDA and Health Canada-approved procedure lets us spot-treat areas that are resistant to weight loss.
A precisely controlled cooling process targets the fat cells beneath your skin, causing them to freeze (known as cryolipolysis). Once frozen, the fat cells die and your body naturally starts clearing them out. The treated area begins to look slimmer as a result of fat cell loss.
We’ll set you up in a comfortable position during treatment. You’ll be able to read, rest, or even watch a video. A Pacific Derm professional will place the applicator over the target area and you’ll feel a tugging sensation, followed by intense coldness. This feeling won’t last long and subsides as your body gets used to the cold sensation.
The whole process takes about an hour, depending on the number of areas being treated. Once finished, you can take on the rest of your day. You might notice the treated area is a bit tender, red or numb, but these symptoms subside.
You’ll gradually notice results after 3-8 weeks, and your body will continue to eliminate fat cells for up to 6 months following your last treatment. For best CoolSculpting® results, more than one treatment may be needed depending on the area.

Frequently Asked Questions
- Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting?
Good candidates for CoolSculpting fat reduction have noticeable bulges of unwanted fat in specific areas of the body that have been resistant to diet or exercise. Incorporating healthy lifestyle habits and dietary changes can work synergistically with CoolSculpting.
Unlike some fat reduction surgeries, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. However, it can be a good non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Request a consultation with one of our staff members to determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
- Are there any side effects?
During the CoolSculpting procedure you may experience tugging, pinching, deep pulling, numbness or discomfort for a limited time. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain.
The CoolSculpting procedure is not suitable for everyone. As with any medical procedure, we recommend an initial consultation with an experienced clinician or physician to determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
- Do I need to take supplements or follow a specific diet and exercise program before or after CoolSculpting?
No supplements, pills, diet and/or exercise plans are required. Instead, many patients feel more motivated to take better care of their bodies after CoolSculpting treatments – as part of a drive for healthier living.
