How CoolSculpting® Works
Freeze away fat? It comes down to science. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die.*1 Over time, your body naturally processes the dead fat cells (cryolipolysis) and reduces the pockets of fat by 20-25%*2. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget. *Results may vary.*3
- Fat cells are susceptible to lower temperatures than surrounding tissue because of the reduced amount of blood vessels in this layer.
- Every patient is different,therefore we would be happy to develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas.
- Results may require multiple treatments.
Am I a Good Candidate?
The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise.

The Treatment Process
After we select the appropriate individualized treatment area(s) to be used we prepare the treatment area with protective barriers to ensure we are treating the fat cells only and avoiding any damage to the skin or other surrounding tissue.
The device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. This makes for a comfortable treatment that you may choose to read, check email, watch a movie or rest.
After the treatment, you typically return to work immediately and normal activities within a couple of days. In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the dead fat cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
The Coolsculpting has multiple handpiece sizes that require a specific amount of time to ensure a controlled and safe freezing of the fats cells.
During the procedure you will start feeling a tingling sensation which will then feel numb for the remainder of the time the cooling is progressing.
Your Customized Treatment Plan
We will work with you on a CoolSculpting treatment plan that’s tailored to your body and your goals.
During your visit, a cooling device is placed on the treatment area. You can return to normal activities immediately.
You may start to see results in a few weeks, with the best results seen after 1 to 3 months*.

How much does the CoolSculpting procedure cost?
ANSWER: The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. We will help create a customized treatment plan, in person, that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
How long is each session? How many sessions will I need?
ANSWER: We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. We may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals.
Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?
ANSWER: Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they become deceased. Your body then processes and eliminates these dead cells through your lymphatic system. This process can take several months to achieve the full results of the treatment. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
What does it feel like?
ANSWER: As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates to a numbness sensation. During this time many people read, watch videos, work on their laptops, or even rest during their treatment.
Is the CoolSculpting procedure safe?
ANSWER: The CoolSculpting procedure is Health Canada approved for treatment areas from the chin down to the knees. With over one million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for fat reduction.
Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?
ANSWER: No supplements or pills are required and we recommend that you adopt a healthy diet and exercise habits to maintain your results. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting treatment.
What happens if I gain weight down the road?
ANSWER: 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.
This can happen as the Coolsculpting treatment only removes 20%-25% of the fat cells within the treated area, which means there are other fat cells left over. These fat cells maintain their normal activities storing lipids/fats(. We encourage all our patients to adopt and/or maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Are there any side effects?
ANSWER: During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or slight discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, and stinging. There are some conditions that are contraindicated for treatment with Coolsculpting, during your consultation we will go over these conditions to determine if you are safe to have the Coolsculpting procedure.
Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
ANSWER: Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical and non-invasive. Oftentimes, patients return to work the following day after their CoolSculpting session is over. Normal activities can resume within the week, (i.e heavy lifting). Physical activity (such as the gym, running or high impact sports) are dependent on the patient’s tolerance.
When will I see results?
ANSWER: You may start to see small changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after three months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment. Coolsculpting is known for reducing the fat pocket by 20%-25% after the first 3 months. At this time we may determine if a 2nd treatment is required.
*Results and patient experience may vary. While CoolSculpting is safe, some rare side effects may occur. As with any medical procedure, only your CoolSculpting provider can help you decide if CoolSculpting is right for you. In Canada., the CoolSculpting procedure is Health Canada approved for the treatment of visible fat pockets in the submental area, thigh, abdomen, ankles and upper arms. The CoolSculpting procedure for non-invasive fat reduction is available worldwide.
