All treatments at Canada MedLaser start with an assessment. Your beauty technician will take the time to get to know you and learn about what results you want to accomplish. Once we are confident that CoolSculpting is the right choice for you, we are ready to begin treatments.The CoolSculpting device, which consists of two cooling panels, is designed to effectively isolate and cool the fat cells that are being targeted for treatment. The skin and the underlying fat cells are pulled up between the panels for about one hour. During the procedure, clients are able to read, work or even take a nap.Most clients see a visible reduction in fat immediately following their visit. However, because the body has to go through the metabolic process of eliminating the dead fat cells, it may take several months for the full results to be seen.
Coolsculpting – Freezing the fat away
CoolSculpting technology arose from a simple observation by a pair of university students: some people get dimples when they eat Popsicles. The students researched the effect of cold on cells, specifically on fat cells. It was discovered that when fat is frozen, the cells crystalize and die. The body uses its own natural mechanisms to get rid of the dead cells.Canada MedLaser offers CoolSculpting for Vancouver residents, in a way that is safe, non-invasive and comfortable. By gently cooling the targeted fat cells beneath the skin, we are able to adjust the contours of your body without damaging the surrounding cells.
How does CoolSculpting work?
Is Coolsculpting safe?
Like all of the services we offer at Canada MedLaser in Vancouver, the CoolSculpting procedure meets that health and safety regulations laid down by the FDA and Health Canada. Not only is CoolSculpting completely safe, it is a non-surgical intervention with no downtime needed for recovery.However, it is not the right choice for everybody. CoolSculpting is intended as a treatment for people who have some noticeable bulges that they would like to get rid of. It does not replace surgical procedures for people who are aiming for significant weight loss, such as liposuction and gastric bypass surgery.
