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 was one of the first med spas to offer CoolSculpting for men and women from Burlington, Hamilton, Oakville, Mississauga, Brantford, and surrounding areas.
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 and his wonderful team of nurses are 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.
Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
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:
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 our incredible Ulthera skin tightening treatment, which uses ultrasound to target deep layers of the skin.
Dr. Weiglein is a Royal College-certified plastic surgeon who blends his refined surgical talents with a deep appreciation for the human form and spirit to give you a personalized, rewarding cosmetic experience.Meet Dr. Weiglein
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. 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.
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.
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.
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. Oftentimes, patients return to work after the session is over.
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.
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.
Call us today at (905) 631-6288 to set up your free consultation or request your consultation online. We’ll see if you’re a good candidate for CoolSculpting and work with you to develop a treatment plan.Back to Top
