NON-SURGICAL FAT REMOVAL

Healthy men and women often struggle with certain “problem areas;” specific fat deposits that resist diet and exercise. Fortunately, there is an effective (and surprisingly affordable) solution that is quickly becoming the most popular procedure in the body contouring industry. CoolSculpting has quickly become Dermafina’s (situated in Montreal) most popular body contouring treatment.

Is Coolsculpting right for me?

Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.

What does it feel like and is it safe?

As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.

Are there any side effects? Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?

Are there any side effects? Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?

During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Your service provider will be able to let you know if CoolSculpting is right for you.

The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.

Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?

 

Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?

Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.

When will I see results?

When will I see results?

You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
