How Does it Work?
Unlike other methods of weight reduction, Coolsculpting eliminates fat cells, it doesn’t just shrink them. This allows us to change the shape and tone of your appearance, not just the number on the scale. With Coolsculpting, Mississauga patients get the benefits of the unique technology known as cryolipolysis.
With this method, we can effectively target fat cells with intense cold without harming surrounding cells. When treated, the fat cells will crystalize, fall away and be safely excreted from your body.
