CoolSculpting® has helped both men and women shape away their unwanted bulges.
CoolSculpting® sessions can take as little as 2 hours to perform for a single treatment. You can have multiple areas treated in one visit, but it will prolong the treatment session.

With CoolSculpting® you should notice a visible fat reduction in three to four weeks, but dramatic improvements will be seen about eight weeks following your treatment. At this point, about 90 percent of targeted fat cells will have been removed, but for some, results can continue to develop for six months. This gives a noticeable 25% reduction in the treatment area after a single treatment.

Typically, patients receive one to three total sessions per area. Results from the treatment can be seen in as little as three weeks. The most dramatic results are visible around three months after treatment, but the body will continue to eliminate fat cells for four to six months. To maximize CoolSculpting® results, we recommend a minimum of two treatments three months apart.

A common misconception for CoolSculpting® is that it is a replacement for a healthy lifestyle – diet or exercise and that is false. Coolsculpting targets subcutaneous fat found within the skin layers. This layer of fat cells is not correlated with body weight. Therefore, many patient may not see a change in their overall weight, but will see an improvement to

Using Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolisis is a Health Canada approved treatment for fat reduction. It uses a controlled cooling to freeze unwanted fat cells. The Coolsculpting technique uses a controlled handpiece that freezes the fat cell to approximately 11 degrees Celsius for a controlled amount of time. During that time the skin is covered by protective barriers placed prior to the start of the treatment to unsure a safe, controlled freezing process.

Endymed Body Contouring

The EndyMed Body Contouring treatment provides a non-invasive, non-surgical body treatment using radiofrequency technology for deeper, controlled, and focused energy penetration that tightens and contours, with superior collagen remodeling for comfortably visible results. Radio frequency is a safe approved treatment that creates a safe heating within the skin to promote collagen growth and remodeling. The heat delivered to the skin to the proper depth causes collagen to contract, providing notable changes in the appearance of the skin.

The EndyMed Body contouring treatment can assist in reducing cellulite, and promote skin tightening in many areas, including the waist, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, and arms.

EndyMed is considered a safe and effective treatment. As EndyMed does not require any incisions, there is almost no risk for side-effects or complications.

It usually takes around three months before the optimum results are seen, following a full course of recommended treatments.

We usually recommend around 6-12 treatments for full results with the first 4-6 treatments spaced one week apart, and the following treatments spaced two weeks apart. The treatment intervals are dependent on the treatment area.

Results can last for 12 months or more, but this depends on your skin’s tone, texture, and the natural ageing process.

Treatment Process

After we select the appropriate individualized treatment area(s) to be used we prepare the treatment area with protective barriers to ensure we are treating the fat cells only and avoiding any damage to the skin or other surrounding tissue.

The device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. This makes for a comfortable treatment that you may choose to read, check email, watch a movie or rest.

During the procedure you will start feeling a tingling sensation which will then feel numb for the remainder of the time the cooling is progressing.

After the treatment, you typically return to work immediately and normal activities within a couple of days. In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the dead fat cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.

The Coolsculpting has multiple handpiece sizes that require a specific amount of time to ensure a controlled and safe freezing of the fats cells.


Where does the fat go?

Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they become deceased. Your body then processes and eliminates these dead cells through your lymphatic system. This process can take several months to achieve the full results of the treatment. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.


Are the results permanent?

Yes, CoolSculpting reduces approx. 20-25% of fat cells after one treatment session. To obtain further improvement, a minimum of two treatment session is recommended. Coolsculpting treats subcutaneous fat cells. These fat cells are in the skin and our body’s “storage facility”, where they store and extract lipids/fats for dietary purposes. Because these cells are designed only to store lipids/fats they are unable to replicate or grow new cells.


How much does the CoolSculpting procedure cost?

The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. We will help create a customized treatment plan, in person, that’s tailored to your body and your goals.

How long is a consultation?

A consultation with one of our Coolsculpting technicians is approximately 1 hour. During this appointment we will review with you your areas of concern, your goals, and create a customized treatment plan for you.


How long is each session?

A CoolSculpting treatment session is dependant on your individualized treatment plan. CoolSculpting sessions can take as little as 35 minutes to perform for a single treatment area. You can have multiple areas treated in one visit, but it may prolong the treatment session. This can be discussed further in you consultation.

How many sessions will I need?

We usually recommend two treatment sessions minimum depending on the treatment area.


Am I a Good Candidate?

Good candidates have noticeable fat pockets in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are considered overweight or obese. It is, however, a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Request a one-on-one consultation with us to determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

What happens if I gain weight down the road?

Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas. This can happen as the Coolsculpting treatment only removes 20%-25% of the fat cells within the treated area, which means there are other fat cells left over. These fat cells maintain their normal activities storing lipids/fats. We encourage all our patients to adopt and/or maintain a healthy lifestyle. CoolSculpting also treats subcutaneous fat, which is located within the skin. These fat cells have minimal correlation to weight gain or loss.

What does it feel like?

As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates to a numbness sensation. During this time many people read, watch movies or TV, work on their laptops, or even rest during their treatment.


Is the CoolSculpting procedure safe?

The CoolSculpting procedure is Health Canada approved for treatment areas from the chin down to the knees. With millions CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for fat reduction.

Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?

No supplements or pills are required, and we recommend that you adopt a healthy diet and exercise habits to maintain your results. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting treatment.


Are there any side effects?

During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness, or slight discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, and stinging. There are some conditions that are contraindicated for treatment with Coolsculpting, during your consultation we will go over these conditions to determine if you are safe to have the Coolsculpting procedure.


Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?

Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical and non-invasive. Oftentimes, patients return to work the following day after their CoolSculpting session is over. Normal activities can resume within the week, (i.e., heavy lifting). Physical activity (such as the gym, running or high impact sports) are dependent on the patient’s tolerance. However, we do not recommend going to the gym immediately after the treatment.


When will I see results?

You may start to see small changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after three months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment. Coolsculpting is known for reducing the fat pocket by 20%-25% after the first 3 months. At this time, a follow up appointment is completed, and we then schedule the secondary treatment.
