Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, you still have unwanted, stubborn fat deposits that just won’t go away. Other times, these unwanted pockets of fat appear in areas that can’t be targeted by exercise – such as under the chin, creating the appearance of a double chin. The good news for people living in Vancouver is that with Dr. Jaffer’s help, you don’t have to live with a body that has these unwanted fatty deposits! Non-surgical, non-invasive treatments are available at Heights Laser Centre to treat these issues in just a few sessions!*

CoolSculpting is a new, unique solution that freezes away fat cells in the subcutaneous fat layer for good with a technology known as Cryolipolysis™. The cell remnants are then gradually removed by the body. Because this treatment removes fat cells rather than shrinking them, treated regions are less likely to gain new inches. It’s a non-invasive procedure with no downtime that can easily be performed before you head into work or during your lunch break.
CoolSculpting works by placing an applicator on your problem areas and killing your fat cells by freezing them. Once these fat cells are dead, they are gone for good, and they will be eliminated from your body via its natural elimination process.
You can target these areas:
chin and neck
You may be able to see initial results of CoolSculpting a few weeks after your initial treatment, but most of Dr. Jaffer’s patients see their final results about three months after their last CoolSculpting session.* The number of CoolSculpting sessions you will need will all depend on your anatomy, the problem areas you want to target and your desired results.

Belkyra Gets Rid of That Double Chin
If you have unwanted, stubborn fat in your chin area, you may feel hopeless. After all, it’s not like there’s a chin workout routine you can perform to tighten and tone that area of your body by yourself. Belkyra, however, may produce the results you are looking for. This injectable solution developed by Allergan permanently destroys fat cells under the chin. And this is great news because according to a study by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 67% of people are bothered by the fat or fullness under the chin. This is virtually the same percentage of people who report being bothered by fine lines and wrinkles!
VelaShape™ II uses multiple techniques to reshape the target area: bipolar radiofrequency energy, mechanical massage, and infrared light energy. These techniques combine to enhance metabolism in treated cells, shrink fat cells, and boost lymphatic drainage. Velashape™ II also reduces cellulite and improves skin texture for a comprehensive approach to body contouring.
It seems too good to be true that you can get rid of fat cells for good without surgery like liposuction. But it is true, and we have the experience and artistic skill to help give you the results you want.

Treating Abdominal Fat/Love Handles
Do you have a beer belly, spare tire, or pooch? Those extra pounds and inches are caused by an excess of abdominal fat. Abdominal fat forms over the abdominal muscles. Love handles are the extra deposits of stubborn fat that form just above the hips.
These unwanted stores of fat change the overall proportions of the body, making people feel embarrassed about showing off their bodies in public.
Why Do I Have Excess Abdominal Fat/Love Handles?
When we’re born, the fat cells in our body are distributed in a certain way. During puberty, the distribution of fat cells changes as new fat cells form. This depends on the levels of estrogen and testosterone in the body.
As we get older, we do not typically gain or lose fat cells. Instead, our fat cells grow or shrink depending on our diet, exercise/activity levels, and various life experiences such as pregnancy.
Subcutaneous fat, a major component of abdominal fat and love handles, is located beneath the skin layers and attaches to them. Subcutaneous fat can be stubborn. But with the right treatments, you can get rid of subcutaneous fat, reducing the abdomen and love handles in volume.
We offer to patients in Vancouver two highly effective non-surgical, non-invasive, and gentle treatments for removing fat cells from the abdomen/love handles: CoolSculpting and VelaShape™
