About CoolSculpting St. Catharines
Diet and exercise can help you lose weight, but some areas on your body are genetically programmed to retain fat. This stubborn fat is the last to go, and unfortunately, you can’t spot reduce it with exercise. No matter how healthy your lifestyle or how many crunches you do, lumps and bulges will always find a way to form.
So, how do you lose belly fat? Is there a solution to lose face fat, or lose my double chin? And how do you eliminate stubborn love handles?
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is the ultimate solution to all of these questions. It can help you lose belly fat, lose face fat, lose arm fat, lose thigh fat, and more in as little as one treatment.

CoolSculpting Double Chin
The CoolSculpting Chin treatment may be right for you. This treatment has become one of the most sought after non-surgical treatment to in order to target fat removal from the face. The results from CoolSculpting® Double Chin have been remarkable, helping to restore many patients’ self-esteem. Please see the CoolSculpting® Before and After photos below.
One of the most difficult areas on the body to reduce fat is the upper arm region. The lucky few can control the amount of fat on their upper arms through extreme dieting and excessive exercise. Unfortunately for most of us, practicing healthy eating habits and regular arm exercises isn’t enough to spot target this problem area. The fat in this area can hang from our arms and has become a feature that many men and women are self-conscious of. Although this build up is common amongst adults, it doesn’t change the fact that it has become a large insecurity. Luckily, there is a non-surgical solution to get rid of the unwanted fat in this area. The purpose and creation of the CoolSculpting Arms treatment is to target and destroy areas of fat that are unresponsive to diet and exercise, like the upper arm area.

How does CoolSculpting works
CoolSculpting is praised for being gentle and effective in eliminating fat cells, without harming the surrounding tissues. With just a single session, you will be able to see a measurable improvement of the treated area. According to a study published in the medical journal, Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology, the average patient will experience a 20% to 25% reduction of the fat layer after treatment. In fact, additional research suggests that it may even reduce up to 40% of the fat layer. That is all from just 1 session and absolutely no recovery period! Which is why it has become the first choice in fat reduction for our female and male patients because of how fast you see the CoolSculpting® results.
CoolSculpting® uses Cryolipolysis®, which is a totally different approach to fat reduction. Cryolipolysis® is a technology that was developed by two Harvard scientists, Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD, in a rather unique way. They noticed that children with dimples are not born with them on their cheeks, they actually develop the dimples from eating popsicles. The freezing temperatures from the popsicles decrease small pockets of fat cells but do not harm any other tissues, including skin. This results in the creation of dimples. This is how Cryolipolysis® was born and it is the science behind CoolSculpting®. The technology has been approved by board-certified plastic surgeons, dermatologists and other medical specialists alike.
The controlled cooling of tissues in the target area is 4°C, a temperature that will not harm your skin, muscles or other tissues. However, for the fat located just below the skin, 4°C can be detrimental. This temperature is ideal for freezing fat cells. Once crystallized, they are simply processed through your body over the following weeks.
You may not see any change after the initial week but in 1 to 3 short months you’ll see the improvement you’ve been waiting for! According to a Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology study, the 1 to 3 month mark post treatment is when your body will have effectively processed your fat cells from the targeted area(s). Your body processes these crystalized fat cells through your lymphatic system, the same as any other waste. It is important to drink a lot of water during this stage.
CoolSculpting® is different from other devices because it targets fat cells without adversely affecting the surrounding tissues. Unlike radiofrequency-based and ultrasound-based technologies, the fat cells do not release their contents. The entire cell is targeted, which leads to a reduction of unwanted fat. You can keep your fabulous new shape with a healthy lifestyle.
Skin Vitality is the FIRST in Canada to offer CoolSculpting®’s newest technology. We have the very latest CoolSculpting® fat reduction technology from Allergan, allowing you to reduce your treatments in half with 2x the results! This means that you are able to treat two areas at the same time. For example, you may choose to treat both of your love handles or look into doing CoolSculpting® inner thighs all at once. This allows for two areas to be treated together in one hour rather than two so you can get back to your busy schedule.

FAQ's About CoolSculpting
The pricing of CoolSculpting varies depending on the area you want to treat. The CoolSculpting cost for a single treatment usually costs a couple hundred dollars, but the price may go up if you are looking to treat more than one area.

At first, you’ll feel a little cold in the area treated because after all, it is a fat freezing technique. However, after a short while, the area will feel numb. You may feel some tugging and pulling as well.
“There are a few side effects related to the CoolSculpting treatment. All are minor and temporary: – Numbness (can last about a week or so) – Mild soreness – Mild bruising Zeltiq has performed several studies on CoolSculpting in the treatment of specific areas.”
The optimal results in the treatment area appear about one to three months after your session. The fat cells that have been crystallized by the treatment are processed by your body like waste matter. However, future weight gain can increase the size of the remaining fat cells in your body. Results remain stable as long as you pursue a healthy lifestyle.
Although there is no recovery time, you’ll need to wait a few weeks to see results. This is because your body needs time to process the fat cells. According to a study on the CoolSculpting device published in Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology, the soonest you may see results is about three weeks, but ideal results take about one to three months or so to appear.
CoolSculpting® is a safe, fat reduction treatment that was first approved by Health Canada in 2008. The technology is so popular that over 6 million treatments have been performed around the world. In fact, CoolSculpting® is the most popular treatment recommended by Doctor’s when treating excess fat without surgery!
The convenient thing about CoolSculpting® is that there is NOTHING that you need to do in addition to your in-clinic sessions. You don’t have to bump up your exercise routine, go on a special diet, or take any supplements or medications as part of your treatment.
Once you see your leaner body contour, though, you’ll probably be so happy that you’ll want to maintain it with a healthy exercise and diet regimen.
