Coolsculpting Target Areas

Removing Unwanted Fat

We all have areas of fat that will not seem to go away even with diet changes and regular exercise. CoolSculpting® helps to target these areas using controlled cooling to target and kill only these certain fat cells. In the weeks following a CoolSculpting® procedure, the body naturally processes these fat cells and eliminates them. CoolSculpting® results are seen as long-term because the fat cells that are removed shouldn’t return. During the CoolSculpting® procedure, fat cells are frozen and they then die off naturally, which is why patients experience results that last. It’s important to understand that while this procedure does freeze stubborn fat cells, it does not damage any of the skin or surrounding tissue.

Benefits of CoolSculpting®

There are a host of benefits of CoolSculpting®, a few of which include:

  • Health Canada Approved – CoolSculpting® is a government-approved health procedure. The procedures are designed to target and freeze away stubborn fat cells. CoolSculpting® was developed by scientists at Massachusetts General Hospital.
  • Natural Results – After just one session, the treated area will begin to look smoother and more toned over a period of about six months. Most patients see the majority of the frozen fat cells work their way through their body over the first two months, but some patients will see results in as little as four weeks.
  • Non-Invasive – CoolSculpting® procedures are convenient and typically only last between 30 to 60 minutes. Patients will experience a cool burst of cold air followed by dull pressure throughout the treatment. During a non-invasive CoolSculpting® treatment, patients are welcome to read, sleep or even work.
  • Highly Qualified Medical Professionals – At Sharma Skin & Hair Surgery, you’re in the qualified hands of Dr. Sharma and his staff of highly trained medical personnel. Dr. Sharma has been providing a variety of different cosmetic procedures for more than a decade and is more than able to give you the CoolSculpting® results that diet and exercise alone may not achieve.

CoolSculpting® FAQ

We’ve compiled a list of some of the most common questions we’re often asked during our initial consultation with our CoolSculpting® patients. 

How does CoolSculpting® differ from Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that requires general anesthesia and uses large tubes to remove fat from targeted areas. CoolSculpting® doesn’t require surgery and has no downtime.

Can I achieve the same results with diet and exercise alone?

The answer is, it depends! Even with the most rigorous diet and exercise plan, depending on your body shape, there may still be areas of stubborn fat, which are extremely difficult to get rid of. This is where CoolSculpting® can be of immense benefit.

What does CoolSculpting® feel like?

During the first few minutes of a CoolSculpting® procedure, patients often feel pressure and intense cold. This feeling soon subsides and patients often read, work, watch videos, or even sleep during their treatment.

How many CoolSculpting® treatments are necessary? 

It depends! Some patients see results in just one treatment while others need a few to reach their desired results. A member of our team can help you during your initial consultation to assist in determining the number of sessions required.

Can I combine CoolSculpting® with other procedures?

Yes! To further enhance the effects of the CoolSculpting® after large areas have been targetted, our physicians are able to employ the incredible EM Sculpt to perform dual action muscle building and fat burning at the same time.

CoolSculpting® is also called cryolipolysis. The technology is based on the fact that freezing cells preferentially targets fat cells and not surrounding cells. The targeted area is suctioned into a vacuum and the cells are frozen. The area is kept in this state for an hour with no damage to the skin and other tissues. Once complete the patient is able to continue with their days activities and the process of fat breakdown begins over the next few weeks.

During the consultation process, Dr. Sharma and the patient will determine the areas that will be targeted by the CoolSculpting® procedure. A gel pad and applicator are applied to the target area and the tissue is suctioned into a vacuum device. The fat contained inside the tissue is cooled by the machine in a controlled manner. There is minor discomfort in the initial part of the cooling process and then most people are able to relax and continue.

CoolSculpting is perfect for the following areas:

  • Submental fat (double chin fat)
  • Bra fat
  • Abdominal fat
  • Flank (Love handles)
  • Inner and outer thigh
  • Upper arm
  • Underneath the buttock (banana rolls)Coolsculpting Target Areas2

Depending on the number of areas being treated, treatments usually last about an hour. Patients are able to continue with their days activities with very minimal discomfort post procedure.

Most people only require one treatment in one area but each individual is assessed in the initial consultation at which time a plan of treatment is decided upon.

You may see results within three weeks as the frozen fat cells begin to die off and are eliminated from the body. Most people notice very dramatic results within 8 weeks of the procedure with permanent elimination of the targeted fat cells.

The ideal candidate is someone who is in relatively good shape and has realistic expectations about this type of procedure. CoolSculpting® is highly effective, but it will not replace a regular exercise and diet routine. Patients who make healthier lifestyle changes prior to and after the procedure will see lasting effects.

Pricing is based on the area and the size of the area treated. There are variable sizes of applicators which can be utilized ranging from mini applicators, medium applicators and larger applicators. Pricing is varies based on the areas of concern, number of treatments needed and the desired result required by the patient.

On average a cycle of CoolSculpt® in one area costs $750. This price can vary as per the exact requirements of the client as determined in consultation.

We create a customised body sculpting plan for each patient.

Once the target fat cells have been frozen the breakdown process begins. Dead fat cells are siphoned away by the lymphatic system (which is effectively the body’s second circulatory system). The dead cells are delivered into the main circulatory system and with the aide of the liver eliminated from the body. This process starts soon after treatment has been completed and typically results being to visualize as early as 3 weeks with very visible results by 8 weeks. The process of fat breakdown can however continue for up to 3-4 months post procedure.

Fat cells that are destroyed in the CoolSculpting® process are removed permanently. It is important to remember that this procedure is ideal for targeting stubborn fat and is not a replacement for a healthy diet and exercise program to remain healthy and optimise weight.

Holistically however it works perfectly in individuals who are striving for physique perfection.

Our physicians consult our clients who are interested in CoolSculpting® to ensure they are suitable for the procedure. Fortunately most people are able to safely have the procedure. There are some notable conditions which preclude you from CoolSculpting® including cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria.

The simple answer is no. CoolSculpting® is designed to target stubborn fat areas.

To enhance and speed up the fat breakdown and elimination process, as part of the MML protocol we administer IV therapies which help support the liver, circulation and lymphatic system which are pivotal in flushing out the frozen damaged fat cells targeted by CoolSculpting®. Furthermore, once larger areas have been targeted by CoolSculpting® our physicians are able to deploy the incredible EMSCULPT® to perform dual action muscle building and fat burning at the same time.
