CoolSculpting® Edmonton

Why choose CoolSculpting®?

Have you tried numerous diets and different exercise regimens but nothing seems to work? As you age, your body and hormones change, your metabolism decreases, sleep deprivation increases, and the list goes on. This can leave you with stubborn fat pockets that were never there in the first place but, we can help!

CoolSculpting® is a fat-freezing technology that gives long-term results with minimal downtime to our clients in Edmonton, St. Albert, Sherwood Park, and Spruce Grove.

How does CoolSculpting® work?

CoolSculpting® technology uses cryolipolysis. “Cryo” means freezing and “lipolysis” means fat cells. Put that together: freezing fat cells! It works to treat localized areas of fat. The body then breaks down these fat cells and excretes them, leaving the patient with a 20-24% reduction in the area that has been treated.

What can I expect during my visit?

During your first visit, you’ll meet with one of our CoolSculpting® technicians for a one-on-one consultation. Together, you’ll go through your goals and address the areas you are inspired to transform. They’ll create a customized treatment plan tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.

During your treatment, a gel pad and the CoolSculpting® applicator will be applied to the targeted area. The applicator will begin to deliver controlled cooling to target and begin to eliminate the fat. During this time, you can sit back watch your favourite show, read a book, check your email or take a nap!

CoolSculpting® FAQs

The CoolSculpting® fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. It is not a weight loss solution (unlike weight loss surgery, such as gastric bypass or liposuction).

To find out if you’d make a great candidate, please request a one-on-one consultation with one of our CoolSculpting® experts!

CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared for treating areas including flanks (love handles), double chin, armpit fat, upper arms, lower and upper abdomen, upper and lower flanks, back bra fat, inner and outer thighs, banana roll (the area just below the buttocks) distal thigh (knees) and male chest.

Your CoolSculpting® investment varies depending on the areas you are inspired to transform and the number of sessions required to achieve your goals. Working together with a CoolSculpting® expert, our technician will help create a customized treatment plan, in person, that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.

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.

The CoolSculpting® treatment is quite comfortable. When the applicators are first applied to the skin you will experience an intense cold. As your skin adjusts to the temperature change, it’s relaxing for the rest of the session. You’ll get to watch TV with a cozy blanket and chill out until the treatment is over! When the applicator is removed, the technicians do a hard, two-minute massage to the treated area to return its blood flow, starting the breaking down of fat cells. Those two minutes aren’t comfortable, but it’s worth it for better results. Most people describe the sensation as “weird” more than painful.

 

Normal activities can be resumed, but clients typically experience swelling and numbness. These reactions are actually great signs the fat cells are breaking down!

With over one million CoolSculpting® treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.

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. Rare side effects may also occur.

CoolSculpting® is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting® procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask us if the CoolSculpting® procedure is right for you.

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

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.

No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting® treatment. It is as if they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.

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.

There are a number of key differences that make CoolSculpting® a better fit for people looking to get rid of their stubborn fat.

Firstly, CoolSculpting® uses controlled cooling to eliminate troublesome fat, whereas SculpSure® seeks to melt fat cells using heat which requires the applicators to reach a fairly high temperature, and this can be quite uncomfortable for sensitive people.

Secondly, SculpSure® is a newcomer to the scene while CoolSculpting® is a tried and tested procedure that has been around and satisfying both male and female patients since 2005. Importantly, CoolSculpting® is FDA-approved for various areas of the body, with unique specialized applicators including ones for the arms, abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, and submental fat under the chin. With CoolSculpting®, we understand all of the possible outcomes and long-term effects while SculpSure® has only been FDA approved for abdomen and flanks in 2015.

Additionally, all our CoolSculpting® technicians must be certified and properly trained to perform the treatments resulting in maximum results and minimal injuries. SculpSure® currently has no training program in order to perform the procedure, therefore patients need to choose their practitioner carefully and select a respected medical spa with a good track record.

Yes, of course! We welcome new patients from across Alberta to book an appointment with us including those in Sherwood Park, Spruce Grove, or South Edmonton.
