How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
CoolSculpting®, also known as cryolipolysis, is an advanced, non-invasive body contouring treatment that does not require incisions and does not damage your skin or surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting® leverages controlled cooling technology to injure the fat cells in the treatment area with freezing temperatures. These damaged fat cells are then naturally eliminated by your body. CoolSculpting® can result in a 25%-40% reduction of unwanted fat in the treatment area. Clients achieve remarkable and noticeable results within 3-4 months after CoolSculpting® treatment.

Are There Any Risks Or Side Effects Associated With CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® is considered safe and it is the #1 fat-freezing technology approved by Health Canada. Some patients experience mild side effects such as redness, tingling, numbness, or discomfort after treatment, but these symptoms usually resolve within a few hours or days. There is a very rare, yet treatable complication associated with CoolSculpting® that can occur in fewer than 1% of patients called paradoxical adipose hyperplasia, or PAH, where fat in the treatment area can become hardened. Your CoolSculpting® professional can help you understand this potential risk.

Q: Is CoolSculpting® painful?
A: The CoolSculpting® freezing temperature provides an almost numbing effect at the treatment area. Most clients report no pain and very little discomfort. After treatment you may experience some hypersensitivity to your skin at the treatment area or some very mild tenderness, but most clients return to their daily activities immediately.
Q: Does the fat come back after CoolSculpting@ treatment?
A: The fat cells targeted in the treatment area will be permanently destroyed and will never grow back (pregnancy is the last time in a female’s life when the body may regenerate fat cells, and this could happen in the treated area). But be aware that fat cells outside of the treatment area can still grow larger if you are not careful to maintain a healthy weight.
Q: Will I lose weight after CoolSculpting®?
A: CoolSculpting® is not considered a weight loss solution, but rather a way to target specific pockets of stubborn fat, contour the treatment area, and achieve a more sculpted appearance. For optimal results, you should continue to follow a healthy eating and exercise strategy after treatment.
