Coolsculpting VancouverEven though many Vancouver residents maintain a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise, they still struggle to lose fat bulges in certain areas of their body. They want that elusive contoured shape, but unfortunately, you can’t point to an area of your body and make it lose weight. That’s where CoolSculpting® comes in. It could be the perfect, non-surgical answer to help you be rid of those bulges forever! Heights Laser Centre is a CoolSculpting®-certified medical spa, meaning Dr. Jaffer and his team have the most advanced training and technology available to Vancouver area patients. When considering CoolSculpting® as their fat-elimination option, many of Dr. Jaffer’s patients want to know how many treatments they will need before they see the results they want. Keep reading to learn more about CoolSculpting®, what areas on your body can be addressed, and how many treatments you will need before you see your desired results.

What Exactly Is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is the only FDA and Health Canada approved, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment on the market today which uses a process of controlled cooling to target and eliminate stubborn fat deposits. CoolSculpting® is gentle and effective at targeting the fat cells beneath the skin while protecting the skin itself. Through the use of low temperatures, CoolSculpting® is able to permanently kill fat cells in the targeted area. The body then metabolizes the dead fat cells and eliminates them as waste. Before you know it, you will have a sleek and sculpted body!

Because the fat cells that are targeted are permanently destroyed, CoolSculpting® is considered a long-term treatment. But it’s important to note, CoolSculpting® will not be able to prevent the remaining fat cells from growing. Therefore, Dr. Jaffer recommends that his Vancouver patients maintain a healthy diet and consistent exercise routine to help prevent the growth of the remaining fat cells. If you gain a significant amount of weight after your CoolSculpting® treatments, those remaining fat cells will grow, and your results will be negated.

What Areas Can Be Treated with CoolSculpting®?

The great thing about CoolSculpting® is that there are several different applicators in various sizes. This provides Vancouver area patients with many treatment options, including:

  • The chin and neck
  • The flanks
  • The upper arms
  • The tummy
  • The thighs
  • The bra line 

But How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Because the needs of every man and woman are unique, the number of treatments that will be needed for each patient is unique. Each CoolSculpting® treatment can eliminate between 20-25% of the targeted fat cells; therefore, some Vancouver residents who only have a small amount of residual fat may only need 1-2 treatments to get the results they want. On the other hand, some may need 3-4 treatments before they see their desired results. During your CoolSculpting® consultation, you and Dr. Jaffer will discuss your desired outcome and expectations, and then he will be able to develop an individualized treatment plan just for you.
