FDA approved, this non-surgical body contouring procedure uses controlled cooling to target unwanted fat deposits. If your healthy diet and regular exercise haven’t been able to help you lose those love handles, CoolSculpting® may be an excellent way to achieve the toned body you want.

What Is CoolSculpting®?

A process known as Cryolipolysis™ uses precisely controlled cooling methods to reduce fatty tissue. Unlike other liposuction alternatives such as Zerona® offered in Vancouver, CoolSculpting is designed to target only your fat cells, this process does not harm your skin or other tissue. As a result of the cooling process, fat cells begin to break down. Your body’s natural cleansing process removes those fat cells for gradual fat reduction over time.

CoolSculpting® Benefits

This procedure offers a wide range of benefits for women and men seeking Vancouver body contouring:

  • FDA approved for non-invasive fat layer reduction of the flanks and love handles
  • Effective method for targeting specific areas of fat that remain despite a diligent weight loss and fitness program
  • No recovery time is needed – you’re on your way after your appointment

How CoolSculpting® Works

CoolSculpting® is performed in our Vancouver practice. You will not require any anesthesia or incisions. During your treatment, the CoolSculpting® device is applied to the targeted area to destroy unwanted fat cells without any harm to the adjacent tissues or your skin. During the next 2 to 4 months your body naturally cleanses itself of the treated fat cells. Many patients see a visible and/or pinchable reduction of fat in the treated area with just one application. However everyone is unique and we cannot predict your results, therefore some patients will choose to repeat treatment of the same area or move on to treating new areas.

What to Expect

After your procedure, you can return to your normal schedule. Because this treatment does not involve anesthesia or incisions, you do not have to plan for any downtime or recovery period. Most patients experience only redness and mild bruising for a short time after the procedure.

People who are considering their body contouring options also may want to learn more about other alternatives to liposuction like Lipodissolve, a less-invasive option that removes fat deposits with injections of fat-dissolving substances.
