What is CoolSculpting?
Diets, workouts, slimming creams—have you tried it all when it comes to getting rid of that stubborn fat around your stomach, legs or arms, yet nothing seems to work? If you’re interested in a cosmetic procedure but are a bit uneasy with the idea of surgery, why not give CoolSculpting a try? CoolSculpting is a revolutionary new treatment offered in our medical facility located just minutes outside of Montreal.
What does a CoolSculpting treatment consist of?
CoolSculpting is a safe, non-surgical slimming procedure. It uses a technique called crypolipolysis to freeze fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body. Treatments range from 30 minutes to 1 hour long and produce remarkable, long-lasting thinning results.
What parts of the body can benefit from CoolSculpting?
Any area of the body with stubborn fat deposits can be effectively treated with CoolSculpting. Particularly popular areas include the stomach, the thighs, the arms and the double chin.
How long will you have to wait for results?
You'll obtain noticeable results from your CoolSculpting session in as little as a month! Optimal results become visible closer to two months after the procedure. From one session to the next, a certain percentage of fat (more or less 25%) is eliminated. The number of treatments needed to achieve the desired results will vary from patient to patient.
Are there certain restrictions for undergoing CoolSculpting treatment?
You cannot undergo crypolipolysis:
- If you’re “allergic” to cold (e.g. Raynaud’s)
- If you have a hernia in the area you want treated
- If you’re pregnant
- If you’re breastfeeding
Is the procedure painful?
Lucky for you, the procedure is almost painless—although patients do experience a bit of localized numbness because of the cold. After the session is finished, patients might feel slight discomfort (we’ll prescribe an analgesic if needed) or insensitivity in the treated area for a few weeks. It's also common for patients to experience some swelling for a few days.
