Woman in Swimsuit and Shawl

Even though many of the men and women in Vancouver lead healthy lifestyles through diet and exercise, sometimes that’s just not enough to get rid of those last few inches of stubborn fatty deposits many people have. Unfortunately, we can’t point to an area of our body and demand it rid itself of fat, but the good news is, Dr. Jaffer of Heights Laser Centre can help! If you’re looking for a slim and contoured body, CoolSculpting® could be just the thing you need in your life.

Through its patented fat-elimination process, CoolSculpting® can help you get the body you’ve been working towards, and it can be a reality more quickly than you may imagine. Keep reading as we discuss more about CoolSculpting®, what areas of the body it can treat, and how soon after treatments you will see your results.

What Is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is a Health Canada and FDA approved, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment. By using a process of controlled cooling, CoolSculpting® targets and eliminates stubborn fatty deposits in specific areas of the body. Because of its non-invasive, gentle technique, CoolSculpting® can target the fat cells beneath the skin without hurting the skin itself.

The idea of CoolSculpting® started when researchers learned that fat cells do not like cold temperatures. So, by using extremely low temperatures, fat cells targeted during CoolSculpting® sessions are permanently killed. They then collapse and are eliminated as waste through the lymphatic system. There’s no easier way to get rid of unwanted fat cells!

And as the icing on the cake, CoolSculpting® is considered to have long-term results. That’s because the targeted fat cells leave the body forever – they won’t grow back – so you can enjoy your results for years to come. However, it’s important to point out that CoolSculpting® treatments do not prevent the remaining fat cells in the treatment area from growing if you gain weight in the future. Because of this, Dr. Jaffer recommends that his Vancouver patients establish a healthy lifestyle to avoid future weight gain. While a few pounds won’t negate your results, significant weight gain will.

What Areas of My Body Can be Treated With CoolSculpting®?

The creators of CoolSculpting® knew that deposits of stubborn fat hang on to different areas of the body on different people. That’s why they developed different applicators designed specifically to target various areas of the body, including the:

• Love handles, or flanks
• Abdomen
• Chin and neck
• Upper arms
• Thighs
• Bra line, or back fat

When Will I See My Results After CoolSculpting®?

Vancouver patients should not expect to walk out of their first CoolSculpting® session with immediate results. As we mentioned above, fat cells that are targeted during treatment die and are eliminated from the body. However, that elimination process takes time. Many men and women will start to notice results within a few weeks after their last treatment, but full results won’t be seen for three or four months. That’s just the nature of the human body. Before beginning your CoolSculpting® treatment, Dr. Jaffer team will meet with you to discuss your desired results and establish a customized treatment plan to meet your needs.
