What Is CoolSculpting™ by ZELTIQ?
Developed at Harvard University in Boston MA, it is a process known as Cryolipolysis™ which uses precisely controlled cooling methods to reduce fatty tissue. Designed to target only your fat cells, this process does not harm your skin or other tissue. As a result of the cooling process, fat cells begin to break down. Your body’s natural cleansing process removes those fat cells for gradual fat reduction over time. The procedure takes between 1-2 hours, depending on the areas you are wanting treated and results are astounding, showing a 25% reduction in fat layer thickness.
How CoolSculpting™ Works
CoolSculpting™ by ZELTIQ is performed in our Kelowna office. You will not require any anesthesia or incisions. During your treatment, the CoolSculpting™ device is applied to the targeted area to freeze unwanted unwanted fat cells without any harm to the other tissues or your skin. During the next 2 to 4 months, you will enjoy an increasingly toned and slim shape as your body naturally cleanses itself of the treated fat cells.
What Areas Can Be Treated with CoolSculpting™?
Common areas that we can treat are:
- Abdomen / Belly
- Love Handles / Muffin Tops
- Back fat
- Inner thighs
- Banana rolls
- Excess male chest fat (gynecomastia)
What to Expect after your CoolSculpting Treatment in Kelowna BC Canada?
After your procedure, you can return to your normal schedule. Because this treatment does not involve anesthesia or incisions, you do not have to plan for any downtime or recovery period. Most patients experience only redness and mild bruising for a short time after the procedure.
What kind of Results should you expect after your CoolSculpting Treatment?
In properly selected patients, the non-invasive CoolSculpting™ Procedure results in a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges in two to four months, without the pain, risk, and recovery time of invasive procedures. The CoolSculpting™ Procedure is not a way to lose weight or treat obesity, and it is not a substitute for more invasive methods like liposuction. Also, the areas treated witih CoolSculpting™ are reduced in fat, but importantly it looks and is smooth. Liposuction normally results in lumps and bumps under the skin due to uneven fat removal but with CoolSculpting, the results are smooth and 100% natural in appearance. You will be thrilled with your results.
Are Kelowna CoolSculpting Results at DermMedica Permanent?
Following the CoolSculpting procedure, within the next few months, about 20-25% of the previously frozen fat cells spontaneously die and are removed naturally by the body's own repair mechanisms. As long as the patient maintains his or her weight with their normal diet and exercise, long-term results should remain stable.
