If constant dieting and hitting the gym has helped you lose weight in the past, but unwanted fat returns time after time, you may be ready for a new method to achieve the body you want. CoolSculpting is an effective, non-surgical and non-invasive technique to slim down.*
Just about everyone has areas on their bodies they would like to look better. But they find that stubborn fatty deposits remain no matter how hard they work to get rid of them. That’s when it’s time to consider CoolSculpting treatment at Vancouver’s Pender Medi Spa in Coal Harbor.
Led by Dr. Paul Denton, Pender Medi Spa is proud to offer our patients CoolSculpting. This technology allows our medical team to freeze away stubborn areas of fat. To learn more about CoolSculpting, or to schedule an appointment, contact Pender Medi Spa today.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting works by gently cooling and then targeting fat cells in body areas you would like to make more attractive and fit-looking. Unlike other fat reduction treatments, this procedure does not use needles and there is no surgery or recovery time. The procedure can take one or two hours and is so relaxing that many patients use treatment time to catch up with work on their laptop computers or read a magazine. Others just use treatment time to relax.
Results from CoolSculpting typically appear about three weeks after treatment and results continue to improve over several months.
At Pender Medi Spa, Dr. Denton and our friendly and talented medical team take the time to meet with patients one-on-one so we can review your aesthetic goals, medical history and previous weight loss attempts.
How It Works
CoolSculpting’s name accurately describes this treatment. It combats stubborn fat deposits by cooling them to the point of freezing. This in turn kills fat cells that lead to fatty deposits. As time goes on, it can reduce these unwanted cells on its own and allows you to sculpt a new look. Research indicates the cold used in CoolSculpting leads to more attractive body contours. This process is known as cryolipolysis.
CoolSculpting also is versatile, allowing patients to target excess fat on just about every part of the body. The procedure uses what is known as an applicator device. This connects to a hose and cold air flows through it and into the applicator. The applicator then freezes fat cells. To protect your skin, we may use a gel pad to cover the treatment area.
Typically, patients begin to feel the cold begin its work after a few minutes. This may cause aching or a tingling feeling in some patients. These feelings are a normal part of treatment and they fade quickly as the treatment area numbs. At Pender Medi Spa, we’ll work with you to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during CoolSculpting treatment. Most of our patients report this treatment is not painful.
It’s important to remember that CoolSculpting is not a guarantee against weight gain in the future. If you do gain weight after CoolSculpting treatment, it’s most likely that new fat cells will emerge in parts of your body that did not undergo CoolSculpting treatment.
If you want to shed unwanted fat – and diet and exercise have not proven effective – CoolSculpting may be for you. Contact Pender Medi Spa today to schedule your CoolSculpting consultation.
