Most of us have at least one “problem” area of unwanted fat that we would love to lose. There was a time when surgery was the only option to eliminate areas of persistent fat to reshape our silhouette; fortunately, we discovered how cold can trigger a breakdown of fat without harm to surrounding tissues. Meet CoolSculpting® —a revolutionary non-surgical method to reduce unwanted fat. The Coolsculpting® fat-freezing procedure is the only FDA and Health Canada cleared non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting.
We can treat almost every area of the body:
Flanks or Love Handles
- Effective nonsurgical reduction of fat trouble spots
- No needles or incisions
- No anaesthesia required
- No downtime
- Permanent results because fat cells don’t grow back
How It Works
The Calgary Coolsculpting® procedure safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target and freeze the fat cells under skin using a process known as Cryolipolysis®. The unwanted fat deposits are more sensitive to the cold than other surrounding cells resulting in the fat cells being frozen and destroyed and the skin, nerves and other tissues remaining unharmed. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells leaving a more sculpted you.
What To Expect
Coolsculpting® is fast and easy. The fat freezing treatments can take as little as 35 minutes so once we put the device into place you can catch up on your favourite shows, read, surf the internet, send some email or even have a little nap. The best part is that Rejuvenation Laser Dermatology has two Coolsculpting® systems so we can treat 2 areas at the same time, shortening treatment length.
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.
Does CoolSculpting really work?! Debra Messing says, Yes!
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.
