Benefits of Coolsculpting®
- Effective nonsurgical reduction of fat trouble spots
- No needles or incisions
- No anaesthesia required
- No downtime
- The precisely controlled cooling process called cryolipolysis destroys only fat cells
- Permanent results because fat cells don’t grow back
How it works
The CoolSculpting® procedure uses a precisely controlled cooling process known as Cryolipolysis® to freeze unwanted fat deposits almost anywhere on the body. Fat cells are more sensitive to the cold than other surrounding cells. As the fat cells are frozen and destroyed, the skin, nerves and other tissues are unharmed.
The skin can also tighten over time following a Coolsculpting® treatment. We also offer other skin tightening technologies to complement your CoolSculpting® results, such as Thermage® and Fotona Skin Tight.
What to expect
Your visit to Vancouver Laser for this treatment can take up to 1 hour per treated area. Once the CoolSculpting® applicator is applied, depending on the area treated, you may relax and watch Netflix or read a book while we freeze your fat.
Once we remove the CoolSculpting® applicator, our specialists use the ZWave acoustic shock wave device to enhance the results. This complimentary service increases the amount of fat destroyed during the treatment. We recommend wearing tight-fitting clothes on the treated area after the procedure to minimize swelling that can result from the cooling process.
Gradual slimming of the treated area occurs over the weeks following the treatment as the body expels the destroyed fat cells through the natural lymphatic cleansing process.
Before + After Photos
Though many patients attain visible results with a single treatment most return for additional treatments for greater fat reduction. The treatment can be repeated every 2 months as necessary until the patient feels that they have achieved the best possible result.
- Possible swelling and bruising
- Possible tingling, pins and needles and/or pain that can last for up to a month
- Possible cramping and itching
Post treatment care
- It is recommended to wear compression garment such as Spanx to reduce possible swelling
- Resume normal activities immediately post treatment
- Drink lots of water and stay hydrated – this assists in expelling the destroyed fat cells
