CoolSculpting is a machine that utilizes patented technology with the purpose of freezing fat non-invasively. When fat is frozen, the fat cells crystalize and reduce. These cells are then metabolized by the body, and after some time there is reduction in the fat cells in the treated area.
The science behind CoolSculpting at CoolSculpting Toronto Clinic involves Cryolipolysis, the idea that cold can be used to reshape and contour the body. After a pair of Harvard university scientists observed that some children got dimples when they ate popsicles, they applied the same idea to fat, and how to selectively target and decrease fat cells. The CoolSculpting procedure involves safely delivering precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target fat cells located underneath the skin. The treated fat cells crystallize, freeze, and die. Over time, the body naturally reduces these dead cells, decreasing the fat for good. Untreated fat cells on the other hand will have no change in fat distribution.
An Introduction to the CoolSculpting TreatmentPLAY
What happens during the treatment?
The patients’ treatment areas are selected and marked by our clinicians. The CoolSculpting hand piece is then positioned and applied to the treatment site, at which point, a strong suction and pressure may be felt. Any discomfort typically subsides after the first 10 minutes of the treatment, and each area is treated for approximately 1 hour. After the treatment completion, the applicator is removed, and the treatment site is massaged.
What does it feel like.?
During the first 10 minutes of each cycle, patients report feeling pressure and discomfort. Once cooling begins to kick in, patients feel a gradual cool sensation in the treatment site, followed by complete numbness. At the end of each 1 hour cycle, a 2 minute massage takes place, at which point discomfort is felt. Many patients read, work on their laptop, or even nap throughout the duration of their treatment. .

How Long Is A CoolSculpting Session?
Each session varies between 1 to 8 hours of treatment, based on the area(s) you are having done. Treatments can be broken up over the course of several days, if desired.
Am I a good candidate for CoolSculpting™?
CoolSculpting™ is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese, or a substitute for surgical methods such as liposuction. Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The doctor or clinical staff will determine if treatment is right during a one-on-one CoolSculpting Toronto consultation.
Is It Safe?
CoolSculpting Toronto is FDA-approved, so rest assured that it is safe and effective. There is also no downtime required because the procedure is completely non-invasive.
