Coolsculpting in Edmonton

Frustrated with fat pockets that refuse to shrink despite your gym and diet efforts? Coolsculpting might be what you just need. We understand how upsetting it can be, especially if you are unable to achieve your goal. However, there is some good news! You can lose weight by freezing your fat away, thanks to the most recent weight-loss solution.

CoolSculpting is a body contouring device that freezes stubborn fat (cryolipolysis). To freeze the fat cells at subzero temperatures, we use carefully controlled plates.

According to Dr. Kamal Al Hallak, an Aesthetic consultant at Albany Cosmetic and Laser Center, "the temperature causes irreversible damage to the treated fat cells, which are then "flushed" away by the body within a few months." Here's everything you need to know about fat freezing.



What is CoolSculpting ?

CoolSculpting is a procedure approved by Health Canada to freezes excess fat deposits in the body using cryolipolysis (a controlled cooling process). The applicator freezes and destroys fat while leaving nerves, skin, and other tissues unharmed.

Why are there different CoolSculpting applicators?

Different body areas have different anatomical shapes. Some areas are wide and curvy, some areas are narrow and flat. Different applicators are used for different areas of the body. For example, the cool-advantage and cool-advantage plus applicators come with three different contours (cool-fit advantage, cool-core advantage, and cool-Curve +). The ability to have a better fitting applicator cup and cooling procedure means shorter treatment time and better results.

What is the ideal number of treatments?

While most patients see visible results after just one treatment, it is not uncommon for one to three treatments to be required to achieve the best results. If you want to lose more fat, you may need more than one treatment. You can repeat the process every three months (if necessary) until you're satisfied with the results. Always consult your health care team before undergoing CoolSculpting to determine if you are a good candidate.

How long does a CoolSculpting session last?

Each section usually takes an hour to treat. We are, however, one of the few clinics in Edmonton that has the updated machines with the new cool-advantage plus applicator. As a result, the treatment time for each section is approximately 35 minutes.

Results and recovery of Coolsculpting

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, it takes about three months to see full results. However, it is dependent on your body and how it responds to the procedure. CoolScupting works by freezing fat (cryolipolysis), so it is a gradual process. The first noticeable results are expected after two weeks, with the maximum results expected after two to three months.

CoolSculpting is effective at reducing and removing fat cells, but it does not tighten the skin. To achieve the best results, we recommend combining it with other laser treatments. We are Edmonton's only centre with a full portfolio of body shaping and skin tightening machines, including Laser, RF, electromagnetic, and cryo lipolysis.

You do not need to take time off from your regular activities following your appointment, but you may want to rest for a day if you believe that returning to work will be stressful on your body.

CoolSculpting, as opposed to traditional weight loss procedures, eliminates fat cells. According to the ASPS, the targeted fat cells are reduced by 20%. Some patients will see a 40% reduction, most likely in smaller areas like the thighs and upper arms. The procedure produces long-term results, but it is recommended that you continue to exercise and eat healthily.

What are the side effects of CoolSculpting?

For a few hours, you may experience cryolipolysis-induced numbness in the treatment area. Bruising may be noticed as a result of the suction process's pinching and tugging. Expect to be sore for a few weeks following the procedure. CoolSculpting patients have very little downtime.

Other possible side effects include:

Swelling, redness, tenderness, tingling, stinging, muscle cramping, skin sensitivity, mild pain, and a pinching sensation are all possible symptoms.

How to care for skin after CoolSculpting

Dr. Kamal (a Pharmacist with Ph.D.) recommends that patients wear compression garments such as Spanx to reduce the possibility of redness and swelling. He also advises patients to resume normal activities following treatment. Also, remember to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water – this will aid in the expulsion of the frozen fat cells.

How much does CoolSculpting typically cost?

The average cost of a non-invasive treatment like CoolSculpting in 2016 was around $1,500. The cost is determined by the area to be treated, the number of areas to be treated, and the number of appointments required for each treatment area. Keep in mind that the larger the target area, the higher the cost. Additionally, treating multiple areas can raise the cost. To develop a treatment plan for you, it is best to consult with a board-certified aesthetician.

If you gain weight in the treated areas, you may need to return for more sessions. To maintain the best results, it is recommended that you continue with a healthy eating and exercise routine after your treatments.

Final thoughts on Coolsculpting

This FDA-approved non-invasive treatment is not a panacea. However, a 2014 clinical trial published in Clinical, Cosmetic, and Investigational Dermatology demonstrates that CoolSculpting produces impressive results. The procedure reduces subcutaneous fat by about 25% in the target area.

However, resuming unhealthy habits after treatment can mask the slimming effects. "I always advise my patients to maintain a healthy lifestyle in order to keep the results," says Dr. Kamal Alhallak, Ph.D.
