What is Coolscupting?
Coolsculpting is a non-invasive treatment to permanently reduce unwanted fat (how cool is that?). Treatment areas include the area under the chin, the abdomen, upper arms, flanks (love handles), and inner and outer thighs. A suction applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to specifically target fat, without affecting the overlying skin. This is possible because fat freezes at a higher temperature than the skin.
When fat cells freeze, the cellular injury triggers a process (apoptosis) which leads to permanent elimination of the affected fat cells.
On average, each Coolsculpting cycle results in a 20% reduction of fat in the treated area and final results are seen three months following the procedure.
Multiple cycles can be administered in the same area to achieve desired results.
How Does Coolsculpting Work?
The technology behind Coolsculpting hinges on one pivotal factor: fat cells are more vulnerable to cold temperatures than skin or muscle cells.
Fat cells that are exposed to low temperatures break down in a process known as cryolipolysis. The Coolsculpting device carefully calibrates the temperature of the treatment: high enough not to cause damage to the skin and low enough to disintegrate unwanted fat.
When fat cells freeze, the cellular injury triggers a process (apoptosis) which leads to the permanent elimination of the targeted fat cells. As the fat cells break down, they are permanently eliminated.
On average, each Coolsculpting cycle results in a 20% reduction of fat in the treated area and final results are seen 3 months following the procedure.
Our Comprehensive Approach to Coolsculpting
An initial consultation with one of our Coolsculpting experts is key to planning your Coolsculpting transformation. During your consultation, it’s important to discuss your body goals and the specific areas of fat that trouble you. This will help our team determine how best to achieve your desired results.
Coolsculpting takes from one and a half to four hours, depending on the number of areas to be treated. During this time, one of our Coolsculpting experts will apply an applicator with suction. When the treatment begins, you will feel a very cold sensation and then the area becomes numb. During your treatment, you will be comfortable and you can relax, read or watch television.
Once the treatment is complete, the tissue is massaged to encourage fat elimination. You’re then free to return to your normal daily activities. The treated areas typically feel a little numb and are often slightly swollen for a few days.
Depending on the amount of fat you would like to be eliminated, you may require several sessions to achieve your desired outcome. Contact us to book a complimentary Coolsculpting consultation with one of our experts so you can understand how Coolsculpting can benefit you.
Coolsculpting is FDA and Health Canada approved for the targeted reduction of fat in multiple locations, including under the chin, the abdomen, flanks (love handles), thighs, and arms. Multiple peer-reviewed publications have demonstrated the effectiveness of Coolsculpting in the reduction of stubborn fat deposits.
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and you will notice the most dramatic results after two to three months.
Coolsculpting isn’t a weight loss treatment. It is very effective for spot reduction and sculpting of your body. It can help make your clothes fit better, but it will not reduce your weight.
Coolsculpting is a very comfortable treatment. At the start of the treatment, the treatment area is cooled and quickly becomes numb. There is a brief massage at the end of the cycle which some patients find slightly uncomfortable.
There is minimal recovery time following Coolsculpting. Swelling is common and typically resolves in less than three weeks. Less commonly, patients report mild numbness or tenderness, bruising, redness, or firmness. These side effects are temporary and typically resolve within three weeks.
In addition to fat reduction, Coolsculpting has been noted to reduce skin laxity, likely as a result of stimulation of collagen production. If additional tightening is needed, Coolsculpting can be followed by ultrasound tightening of the skin with Ultherapy.
Coolsculpting eliminates fat cells permanently. With a healthy lifestyle and diet, results are long-lasting.
