CoolSculpting® is an advanced, non-invasive, fat-freezing technology that does not damage your skin or surrounding tissues. The CoolSculpting® treatment injures the fat cells with freezing temperatures. These damaged fat cells are then naturally flushed by your body. CoolSculpting® will gradually eliminate stubborn pockets of fat in the abdominal area, thigh area, upper arms, back, flanks, and buttocks. While CoolSculpting® can produce beautiful results on its own, some people opt to enhance their results by combining it with complementary cosmetic treatments. Here are some supplementary cosmetic procedures that can elevate CoolSculpting® treatments for optimal results.
Treatments That Can Elevate CoolSculpting® Results
Often patients who struggle with unwanted stores of fat on their bodies, also experience unwanted pockets of fat on their face and neck. Belkyra®/Kybella® are revolutionary, non-surgical treatments to reduce fullness under the chin (also known as double chin). Excess fat under the chin can be the result of lifestyle, genetics, facial structure, and the natural effects of aging. Belkyra®/Kybella® treatment is a series of deoxycholic acid in the target area (under the chin) to permanently destroy fat cells and reveal a more defined, tighter jawline.
Microneedling can help to enhance the results of CoolSculpting® treatments by addressing skin laxity, texture issues, and scarring that may occur or become more apparent after targeted fat reduction. There are two options for transformative microneedling treatments to enhance the results of CoolSculpting®.
- Medical Microneedling: Medical microneedling uses ultrafine needles to penetrate to the dermis layer of the skin, creating microinjuries, and activating the body’s natural healing process. In response to these tiny microperforations, your body naturally boosts its production of collagen and elastin to repair and rejuvenate, building healthy new layers of skin.
- RF MIcroneedling: RF Microneedling turbocharges the effect of medical microneedling by leveraging radiofrequency energy to optimize microneedling results by restructuring the dermis (the deepest layer of our skin) and elevating the skin’s natural function.
- Laser Therapy: If loose, or lax, skin persists after CoolSculpting® treatment, laser therapy is ideal to improve skin texture, tone, and firmness in the treatment area. During a laser skin-tightening treatment, a focused beam of light is used to heat up the deeper layers of the skin, causing the collagen fibres to contract and tighten. The laser also stimulates the growth of new collagen and elastin fibres over time.
- Diet and Exercise: Not a supplementary treatment, but healthy lifestyle choices after CoolSculpting® treatment will ensure your results are long lasting. Eating a healthy, balanced diet and engaging in regular exercise can help to maintain your weight and keep your body in top shape. Strive to reduce stress, get adequate sleep, and avoid unhealthy habits like smoking and excessive alcohol use to enhance and maintain the results of CoolSculpting®.

Q: How does CoolSculpting® work?
A: The procedure uses a device that cools fat cells to a temperature that causes them to undergo apoptosis (cell death) without damaging the surrounding tissues. The dead fat cells are then gradually eliminated from the body over the course of several weeks.
Q: Is CoolSculpting® safe?
A: 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.
