A healthy balanced diet, maintaining your weight and being committed to daily regular exercise contribute to having a trim figure. We may need extra help over particular areas where we tend to have sagging skin and diet-resistant fat pads. The abdomen, back, flanks, thighs, buttocks, under the chin and jawline, and upper arms are common areas where we recommend CoolSculpting® for our clients.

How Does CoolSculpting® Work?
Coolsculpting®, as the name suggests, uses the power of the cold to help you get rid of fat permanently. It uses a process called cryolipolysis, developed by Dr. Rox Anderson and Dr. Dieter Manstein after they noticed that children who frequently ate popsicles would lose cheek fat. Interested in the phenomenon and other similar cases, they set about seeing if the principle could be used on fat elsewhere on the body.
In their trials, the doctors realized that fat cells are much more sensitive to the cold than other cells in the body and they could be damaged with concentrated freezing. By finding a specific temperature that only harms fat, the doctors could safely target and damage problematic fat. Once the fat cells were damaged, the body would slowly remove the dying cells in the weeks following treatment, leading to pain-free, permanent fat loss.
Following its 2008 approval by Health Canada, research about the efficacy of Coolsculpting® only verified the results the doctors observed. Today, millions of successful Coolsculpting® treatments have been conducted worldwide, including extensive treatments in our clinic.
Why Choose Coolsculpting®?
At some point in our lives, most of us have noticed specific areas we would like to work on. Be it a small bulge on our hips, a double chin, fat on arms, or a protruding tummy, stubborn problem areas are pretty common. Even with diet and exercise, these areas are determined not to budge, which is where Coolsculpting® comes in. The Coolsculpting® system allows us to target stubborn fat pads over various parts of the body, and focus on body contouring.
Unlike liposuction, Coolsculpting® is non-invasive, meaning you won’t have to deal with surgery, needles, knives, anesthesia, or downtime. Coolsculpting® makes use of your body’s natural metabolic processes to eliminate dead fat cells, improving your shape over time. And that fat loss is permanent, meaning you can enjoy long-lasting results from an average treatment of one or two rounds!
And if you think Coolsculpting® only has marginal results, think again! Just one session can result in up to a 25% reduction in fat on average, with each round afterwards offering additional benefits. Coolsculpting® offers a simple, safe, and proven method to help you get a natural-looking, fabulous physique!
Starting at Cost & Time of Procedure
Range for average abdomen: 4 – 8 cycles and usually 2 rounds, done 3 months apart. Range $3000 – $6000 depending on size and area.
What Parts of My Body Can I Do CoolSculpting® On?
One of the benefits of Coolsculpting® is that it can be done almost anywhere we tend to carry stubborn fat pads on the body. The Coolsculpting® system is specially designed to take care of stubborn fat wherever you need it gone, like your arms, legs, stomach, waist, flanks and under the chin and jawline
The flanks, thighs, chest, abdomen, double chin, and arms are some of the most common places where clients have successfully frozen fat away. For most people, excess fat tends to accumulate in those areas and is very resistant to dissipate even with diet and exercise. These areas also keep people from having the figure they desire, and they are the first areas our clients choose to reduce. After treating one area, they will often choose a second and third area because they are so happy with the results.
In our consultation, our clinicians will discuss your goals for Coolsculpting® and determine where to target fat for the best body contouring results.

Is Coolsculpting® Safe?
Coolsculpting® is an extremely safe procedure, backed by dozens of studies and millions of satisfied customers. The process utilizes cooling pads that are placed between the skin and Coolsculpting® device to ensure that only fat cells are damaged by the cold. Clients rarely have any issues following treatment. However, if you have any of the following conditions, Coolsculpting® may not be right for you:
- Cold agglutinin disease
- Paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria
Is There Any Down Time With Coolsculpting®?
Nope! Another benefit to Coolsculpting® is that there is no downtime. After each treatment, you’re free to go about your normal activities. There may be some mild discomfort after treatment, but there are no restrictions on what you can do once you leave your appointment.
How to Know If CoolSculpting® is Right For You
Most of our Coolsculpting® patients are looking for body contouring and permanent fat loss in a given area, like the flanks, double chin, or the abdomen, in order to achieve a certain physique. Coolsculpting® is not recommended for weight loss, but it is excellent for spot reduction. If you have problem areas that just won’t seem to go away, then you may be the perfect candidate for Coolsculpting®!
What Does The Process Look Like?
The Coolsculpting® process begins with a consultation, where we assess your health and wellness, discuss Coolsculpting® in more detail and identify your goals for the procedure. Then we plan the best course of action to achieve those goals by identifying which parts of the body should be targeted for maximum results.
The Coolsculpting® treatment itself is actually pretty simple. Once you arrive, we place a protective pad on the area of the body that we plan on targeting. Since the device gets very cold, the padding is necessary to ensure that only the fat is affected. Once the pad is placed, we place the Coolsculpting® device on top and it begins to work its magic. You will feel a slight tugging and cooling sensation with each applicator, which is not painful.
After anywhere from 35 to 70 minutes, we will remove the device and manually massage the target area to bring it back to room temperature. The massage helps kickstart the fat loss process, which will continue in the weeks following the procedure.
What to Expect After Coolsculpting®
After Coolsculpting®, there may be some mild pain, tenderness, aching, or stinging that persist for a few days to a few weeks. This is completely normal, and will subside on its own. The target site may also experience some swelling, redness, and sensitivity, all of which will also dissipate in the days or weeks after the procedure.
In the weeks following the procedure, the targeted fat will slowly be processed by the body, after which an average of up to 25% of the target fat will be gone. Depending on your goals, we may suggest follow-up treatments (usually 2 rounds for the average area) to reduce fat in the desired area even more. After 1-3 months from the last treatment, the full results of Coolsculpting® should be fully visible, and at that point you will schedule the next round if needed.
For the average client, one or two rounds of Coolsculpting® treatments is enough to see excellent results. Depending on your goals, we may recommend 1-3 Coolsculpting® rounds, done every 3 months to achieve your desired results.
In some situations, Coolsculpting® can be comparable. It will depend on your goals and expectations. Liposuction can take away more fat in one session, but is invasive, often with significant downtime. With multiple sessions, Coolsculpting® will often equal or rival the results of liposuction.
It is incredibly unlikely for a client to see no results. Coolsculpting® results show up to 25% reduction in fat on average, with very few people reporting less than that amount. Depending on the size or the area to be treated, it is important to use the recommended number of applicators to cover the fat pad and target all the fat cells, and you should plan on at least two rounds of treatment done 3 months apart in most cases, to achieve the degree of fat reduction to meet your goals.
Our physicians recommend for all of us to lead a healthy lifestyle including:
- Follow a healthy low fat diet with a lot of vegetables, low fat protein, and some fruit. They often recommend a mediterranean type diet as a healthy choice.
- Reduce alcohol, processed foods, sugary drinks, and high fat protein.
- Exercise regularly, daily exercise is highly recommended, for at least 30 minutes. This ensures a healthy heart, strong bones and good muscle strength.
- Drink a lot of water, and eat food that contains water to ensure your body is adequately hydrated.
- In general, for all of us, a good diet and exercise routine will likely enhance results with Coolsculpting®.
Depending on age and skin laxity, after Coolsculpting® the fat pad is reduced and may make loose skin more noticeable, and if so, Venus Legacy™ is a great complimentary procedure to tighten loose skin.
