Looking for Coolscuplting in Toronto? We offer this incredible treatment in our doctor-led Toronto clinic.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting™ is a non-surgical, safe, proven and effective fat-freezing treatment which selectively targets fat cells and eliminates them through the body’s natural cell removal process. This treatment is particularly well suited to eliminate stubborn fat cells that persist despite exercise and diet.
Is CoolSculpting right for me?
Clients of all shapes, sizes, ages and skin types may all benefit from CoolSculpting™. It’s important to note that CoolSculpting™ is not a weight-loss program. This body sculpting treatment effectively removes localized stubborn fat.
CoolSculpting™ is also used to optimize results following surgical procedures like liposuction, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and other surgical procedures. CoolSculpting™ can help correct post-surgical irregularities, such as uneven fat removal or small pockets of remaining fat.
Your North Medical Practitioner will be able to best determine whether CoolSculpting™ is right for you during your free consultation.
What is the Coolsculpting procedure like?
On the day of the treatment, your CoolSculpting™ technician will attach specialized applicators to the areas of concern.
The treatment usually takes at least an hour depending on the number of areas addressed. Most of our clients use this time for some quality ‘me-time’ – enjoying a book, a cup of tea, watching a movie on an iPad or indulging in another North Medical service such as a HydraFacial™. As a special service, we offer you a complimentary Nutrition Counseling session with a Certified Nutritionist when you book your CoolSculpting™ treatment. Ask us for details!
Once the applicators are removed, the North Medical CoolSculpting™ practitioner will perform a quick, two-minute manual massage on the treated area to further break up the fat cells and improve elasticity (up to 65 percent).
Many patients are often surprised to learn that the treatment itself is actually not cold, but quite comfortable.
What areas does CoolSculpting treat?
“If you can squeeze it, we can freeze it!”
CoolSculpting removes localized, stubborn fat in the following areas:
- Upper and lower abdomen (belly)
- Hips and flanks (love handles)
- Chin and neck (double chin)
- Upper and lower back
- Inner and outer thighs
- Bra fat
- Buttocks (banana roll)
Does Coolsculpting hurt?
Most clients report feeling a slight suction sensation for the first few minutes after the applicators are activated. After this initial feeling, most clients forget the applicators are attached and report very little discomfort during the treatment. Everyone is different; if you’re feeling any discomfort during your treatment, we encourage you to discuss it with your North Medical CoolSculpting™ technician.
When will I see results after Coolsculpting?
Many clients report seeing visible results within a few weeks of treatment, with full results generally seen 3-4 months following treatment. Although not a guaranteed result, some clients also notice some skin tightening in the area treated, in addition to fat loss.
For some areas, multiple sessions may be required to achieve desired results. Once you’ve had enough sessions of the treatment, you won’t need to repeat it – the effects last.
When can I return to work / normal activities after Coolsculpting?
Most clients resume normal activities right away, and there are no procedure garments or dressing changes required.
In the first few days or weeks following treatment, some clients report slight discomfort, numbing or tingling sensations in the treated area. Some clients also experience some bruising or redness in the treated area that typically goes away in a few days. Everyone is different – if you have any questions or concerns about how you’re feeling following treatment, be sure to get in touch with us right away.
Is Coolsculpting safe?
CoolSculpting™ is a safe, tolerable and effective treatment. CoolSculpting™ has been approved by Health Canada and has been widely used in several countries.
Our highly trained North Medical Practitioners will be able to assess whether CoolSculpting™ is right for you. To ensure your safety, it’s important to discuss your current state of health, any changes to your health and any medications you may be taking with your North Medical Practitioner at every appointment.
How much does CoolSculpting cost?
It’s hard to say exactly what your CoolSclupting™ treatment will cost because it is priced per area, and everyone is different. The abdomen is usually considered one area and both flanks (hip rolls, inners thighs, love handles etc.) another area. You may need two or more areas treated or one area treated more than once, depending on your goals and your body. It’s difficult to determine exactly what it will cost before seeing you, but our prices at North Medical are right in line with other practices in Toronto and in Canada.
