Reducing Fatty Deposits with CoolSculpting®
Many Vancouver residents have problem areas of fat on their body they just want to see gone for good, including on their:
- Bra or bikini top line
- Love handles
- Muffin top
- Lower chin
You can diet and exercise to your heart’s delight, which we definitely encourage, but you still can’t tell your body where to lose weight. That’s where CoolSculpting® comes in. Working best on areas of minimal to moderate fat, CoolSculpting destroys fat cells for good by literally freezing them to death. Once these unwanted fat cells are dead, your body metabolizes them and eliminates them through its natural elimination process.
Vancouver residents should be advised that CoolSculpting® isn’t a weight loss procedure. It’s designed to work on areas of your body that don’t respond to diet and exercise and to work alongside a healthy lifestyle. So if you’re obese, you’ll need to shed some weight first, then come to Heights Laser Centre for CoolSculpting® treatment once you have a few problem areas that just aren’t responding to your workout routine.
Typically speaking, a CoolSculpting® session eliminates about 20% of the targeted body fat.* Most Vancouver patients who seek out treatment at Heights Laser Centre are advised that they’ll likely need at least 2 CoolSculpting® sessions to see the results they desire. However, your individualized treatment plan will all be based on your one-on-one examination with Dr. Jaffer’s team, your unique anatomy and your goals for the procedure.
What Is a CoolSculpting® Session Like?
Perhaps one of the reasons so many Vancouver residents seek out CoolSculpting® is that former patients often describe it as a very mild, comfortable procedure that takes just over half an hour per session.* In fact, the entire CoolSculpting® process is so gentle, many of our patients at Heights Laser Center choose to surf their smartphone, watch the TV provided in our private treatment room, read a book, or even take a nap during their treatment session!
Since CoolSculpting® isn’t surgery, there’s no downtime or restrictions for recovery. It’s a quick, outpatient process that can literally be performed over your lunch break. You can come in for CoolSculpting®, and head straight back to work or school and your regular routine. How great is that?!
Discover if CoolSculpting® Is Right for You.
CoolSculpting® is a great procedure for losing stubborn fatty deposits, especially if you don’t want to go under general anesthesia and have liposuction performed. But, you have to be cleared for the procedure first. After all, Dr. Jaffer wants to ensure the best possible results, so he carefully screens his potential patients to ensure CoolSculpting® is the right procedure for them.
