Love handles. Spare tire. Muffin top. No matter how well you take care of yourself, you may still have problem areas. Extra gym time might not be enough, and, particularly for our male patients, liposuction may be too much. Observing the need for a liposuction alternative in southern Ontario, Cosmedica is one of the first clinics to offer CoolSculpting for men and women in the Burlington/Hamilton/Oakville area.
CoolSculpting is a breakthrough treatment that uses a process called cryolipolysis to literally freeze fat cells, allowing the body to naturally flush them away while leaving the surrounding cells unharmed.
You deserve to have that slender physique that you work for, and Dr. Weiglein is here to help. To learn more about CoolSculpting and other body contouring procedures, request a consultation or give us a call at (905) 631-6288.
Sculpting Your Problem Areas
CoolSculpting is a great choice for both women and men who want to reduce fat in certain areas without surgery or downtime. This treatment may be right for you if:
- You are at a healthy weight, but you can “pinch an inch” or more in areas such as the waist, hips, thighs, buttocks, abdomen, arms or flanks
- You would be satisfied with subtle fat-reduction, not dramatic contour sculpting
- You want a quick, painless, non-invasive option for slimming problem areas
CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure for those who are significantly overweight. It is designed to slim problematic areas of localized fat. Patients who want to reduce pockets of fat in their necks and other areas without surgery may also be good candidates for an Exilis Elite™ skin tightening treatment, which uses radiofrequency energy to target deep layers of the skin.

What to Expect
CoolSculpting is a brief, non-invasive procedure that is performed on an outpatient basis. During the procedure, the area to be treated is drawn between two cooling panels. The panels then deliver an intense blast of cold to the undesired fat cells, which freeze at a higher temperature than other cells. During this time, you will probably feel a pulling sensation, as well as the cold. This is normal.
Treatments usually last around an hour per treatment area. Many patients use the time to catch up on work or simply relax.
Generally, patients are able and encouraged to return to their normal activities immediately following their treatment. Many people book their treatments during their lunch hour. Some patients report redness, bruising, tingling and cramping in the treated area, but these effects are temporary.
In the weeks following the procedure, the frozen cells break down and are processed by the body’s natural cleansing processes. Results are usually visible within 3 weeks, but may become more dramatic over the course of 2 to 4 months. Patients are often satisfied with the results of just one CoolSculpting session, but most opt for a series of 4 or more treatments for optimal results.
No pills or supplements are required to maintain results—simply keep up your normal healthy lifestyle to reap the benefits for years.
Frequently Asked Questions
What will the results be?
Many patients are satisfied after just a single treatment. However, during your consultation, we can discuss a treatment plan that will meet your specific treatment needs.
What happens during the treatment?
To initiate the treatment we will position the device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you’re done.
Can I return to normal activities after the procedure?
CoolSculpting is completely nonsurgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often times, patients return to work after the session is over.
When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after 1 to 3 months. Your body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment.
How long do the results last?
After CoolSculpting, the treated fat cells die and are flushed out of the body. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable.
