CoolSculpting® Fat Removal
Recontour Your Body with Freeze the Fat™
Experience The Heights Laser Centre Difference
Our medical aesthetic technicians have all gone to CoolSculpting® University in San Francisco to receive extensive training to become fully certified in performing this treatment.
To maintain our distinction as a CoolSculpting®-certified practice, we also have to make sure that your results meet established standards, so we know the improvement you experience is what it should be. This all means that you can have confidence in the effectiveness and safety of your care.
Have a Little "Me-Time"
We make sure the treatment is relaxing, so that you can have some "Me-Time". Read a book, use your phone or watch a show (our room is equipped with a tv!). We'll also give you snacks and drinks to enjoy. When your treatment is longer to target multiple areas for a full body improvement, lunch is on us!
If this is your first time, your certified CoolSculpting® technician can stay in the room with you the whole time to make sure you're doing well,no matter how long your session is. It's our commitment to the higher level of patient care that you deserve.
As a board certified physician-led practice, we have been accredited by the Better Business Bureau since 2009 and have an A+ rating. Our excellent track record allows you to have unparalleled confidence in the quality and safety of the care you will receive in a relaxed and supportive setting. Walk through the doors of our medical spa, and you become part of a family—one that’s committed to achieving your personal goals. We're frequently complimented on how friendly our whole team is!
The CoolSculpting® Journey to a Leaner You
For over a decade, we have supported Vancouver and Burnaby patients with high-quality aesthetic treatments focused on their goals and their comfort. Our staff, led by head physician Dr. Perhez Jaffer, offer a warm and friendly environment for patients. Come for an appointment, and you will immediately feel at ease with our approach and the personal attention we provide.
Your First Visit
Your first visit is for your private consultation with our CoolSculpting® expert. You'll have the opportunity to describe your concerns and what you want to achieve. Because the Heights Laser Centre team provides individualized care to each patient, we can develop a personalized plan based on your unique needs. We have a variety of body contouring treatments available, so your customized plan may involve CoolSculpting® or other options for a gentle but efficient treatment.
Our CoolSculpting®-certified technician will conduct a thorough examination of the problem area(s). CoolSculpting® works best for minimal or moderate amounts of fat bulges. If you have a larger amount of fat that you want to eliminate may benefit from an alternative approach, such as liposuction. This recommendation will be based on your goals, needs, and health background. After the exam, you'll find out how many sessions you may need and the cost.
A Heights Laser Centre team member will prep you for CoolSculpting® by taking “before” photos and laying gel pads on the areas that you want to be treated. Then, our certified technician will position the applicator paddles over the gel pads; these paddles produce the cooling energy that freezes the fat cells.
The treatment takes place in a private room, and during your appointment you are welcome to watch the TV we provide, to bring snacks or a book, or to use your mobile phone. It is gentle enough that some Vancouver patients nap throughout the CoolSculpting® process.
Following each application, your technician will massage the treated areas for about 2 minutes — the optimal amount of time for massage. Research has shown that this process promotes significantly better fat reduction, which is why we make sure to do it. Massaging for any longer hasn’t been found to be effective and a shorter time is ineffective in producing the results you deserve.
Heights Laser Centre uses the most advanced CoolSculpting® technology available. This allows us to maximize the effectiveness of your treatment as well as your comfort and safety. Our new applicators also reduce treatment time by half compared to the original CoolSculpting® applicators. Most patients finish their appointment within an hour. If your technician is treating multiple areas during your visit, you may require additional time. But don't worry, because you'll be able to relax and enjoy snacks and lunch for free!
CoolSculpting® is an ideal option for busy people. Patients can return to work and normal activities immediately and should only experience minor bruising, swelling, and numbness.
It takes several weeks for the body to filter out the destroyed fat cells that CoolSculpting® treats. After this period, your Heights Laser Centre technician will be able to assess your improvement. Most people require at least two cycles of CoolSculpting® per area to achieve their desired outcome.
In total, you should be able to see your final results 3-4 months after you begin the process. Note that larger areas may take more time.
We'll take photos at 60 and 90 days after your treatment. Our patients love to compare their before and after photos to see how their body has improved!
By the end of the full treatment regimen, you can expect attractively contoured features—all with no downtime or significant discomfort.
