CoolSculpting® can be an excellent treatment option if you have stubborn areas of fat that do not seem to respond to diet and exercise and if you are uncomfortable with the idea of having liposuction surgery. The treatment at Heights Laser Centre is so mild that patients typically pass the time watching TV, scrolling through social media, or even talking on the phone!
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive treatment that freezes and eliminates unwanted body fat with the use of breakthrough technology. It targets and permanently eliminates stubborn fat cells by exposing them to extremely low temperatures, all while still protecting the skin. After each treatment, the dead fat cells will leave through the natural process of elimination within a few weeks.
Not only does CoolSculpting® reduce fat but also contours areas of the body for a smooth, aesthetically appealing result. It allows the men and women of Vancouver to finally get rid of those last few frustrating fat deposits to finally achieve a sleeker, more toned physique.
CoolSculpting® is safe, effective and considered a long-term solution for the targeted fat cells because once they are eliminated, they won’t grow back. The results are permanent, and the fat should not return if you maintain your current weight.
It is the only FDA and Health Canada approved fat-reduction system on the market today. Because the creators of CoolSculpting® knew that a one size fits all solution was out of the question, they developed applicators in various sizes. This gives Dr. Perhez Jaffer the ability to target many different areas of the body such as the following:
As a CoolSculpting®-certified med spa, Heights Laser Centre is an ideal place to have your treatment. The training and hands-on experience required to earn this distinction—and the fact that we are a physician-led practice—means that patients can have confidence in the effectiveness and safety of their care.
For over a decade, Dr. Perhez Jaffer has supported Vancouver patients with high-quality aesthetic treatment focused on their goals and their comfort. He and our staff 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.
During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to describe your concerns and what you want to achieve during your visit. Because the Heights Laser Centre team provides individualized care to each patient, we can develop a plan based on your unique needs and then provide gentle but efficient treatment.
Our CoolSculpting®-certified technician will conduct an examination of the problem area or areas.CoolSculpting® works best for minimal or moderate amounts of fat. Vancouver patients who have a larger amount of fat that they want to eliminate may benefit from an alternative approach, such as liposuction surgery. This recommendation will be based on your goals, needs, and health background.
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. Following each application, the technician will massage the treated areas. Research has shown that this process promotes significantly better fat reduction.
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.
Our patients say that CoolSculpting® was a pleasant experience. 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.
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. By the end of the full treatment regimen, you can expect attractively contoured features—all with no downtime or significant discomfort.
Before having CoolSculpting® treatments at Heights Laser Centre, Dr. Jaffer recommends all of his patients maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen, as CoolSculpting® will not prevent your remaining fat cells from growing in the event you gain weight.
Vancouver men and women love CoolSculpting® because it requires no downtime and can be done over an extended lunch break. When you visit Dr. Jaffer for CoolSculpting®, his staff will show you to a private, spa-like room to prepare for your treatment. Amazingly, each CoolSculpting® session takes less than an hour to complete, and you won’t have any signs that you had a cosmetic treatment performed. That means you can get right back to your regular day without missing a beat!
To know how many treatments you will need in order to achieve the results you want from CoolSculpting®, the best thing you can do is visit Dr. Jaffer at Heights Laser Centre in Vancouver. Because every man and woman is different and everyone has different needs and desires for their final look, only after carefully examining your trouble spots will Dr. Jaffer be able to tell you how many treatments you will need.
Each CoolSculpting® treatment will eliminate between 20-25% of the fat cells that are targeted. If you only have a few inches to eliminate, you could need just 1-2 treatments to get the look you’ve been working so hard to get. On the other hand, if your stubborn fatty deposits are on the larger side, you may need 3-4 treatments. Whatever your needs, Dr. Jaffer will create a customized treatment plan just for you so you will get the sleek, toned body you’ve been wanting.
As part of your body’s natural processes, you will metabolize the destroyed fat cells and filter them out of your system. These fat cells will not regrow and will be gone for good.
Generally, our Vancouver patients will start to see results in the treated areas three weeks after their appointment. Around 20% of the fat will be destroyed per treatment. Most patients need two treatments per area; the first removes the bulk of the unwanted fat while the second provides an attractive and even body contour.
At Heights Laser Centre, patient comfort is one of our top priorities. While patients may experience minor discomfort or numbness at the application site, our top-of-the-line, new CoolAdvantage™ applicators cut treatment time in half.
Our Vancouver patients sometimes experience bruising or redness at the applicator sites. These symptoms should be minor and temporary. Swelling tends to be minimal to moderate and last up to 10 days. As with any procedure, Heights Laser Centre and Dr. Jaffer are available to you if you have any questions or concerns following your visit to our med spa.
Men and women throughout the Vancouver area turn to Heights Laser Centre due to the safety and effectiveness provided by Dr. Jaffer and his team.
