The YLC Difference
We’re a result oriented clinic that has been voted the #1 skin care centre in Vancouver by Vancouverites (Westender Magazine).
Time is Money
We believe time is money – we’re the only clinic in downtown Vancouver that has 2 Coolsculpting machines – this means we can treat two different areas at the same time. You’ll experience fewer visits which means less time off work and more time with friends and family.
Book a complimentary consultation with one of our Coolsculpting experts to learn more about how we can help freeze your stubborn fat.
By using controlled cooling to safely target and reduce diet and exercise resistant fat, the Coolsculpting® procedure reduces stubborn fat in a safe and effective manner. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues, and the Coolsculpting® technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target fat cells underneath the skin without harming the surrounding tissues.
Over 2 million procedures performed world wide, the award winning CoolSculpting® procedure is offered at Yaletown Laser Centre, your Vancouver Coolsculpting Premier Provider & Downtown Vancouver’s ONLY Dualsculpting™ Centre!
CoolSculpting is an extremely safe and reliable method of saying goodbye to all those pesky fat cells that just refuse to go away, no matter how much you exercise or diet. Most of the time, you hear of people burning off their fat by exercising, but CoolSculpting does just the opposite. Controlled cooling is targeted at the fat cells located underneath your skin at Yaletown Laser Centre.
These crystallized fat cells freeze and slowly die. As only the targeted fat cells are crystallized, as they are frozen at a lower temperature than the rest of the cells in your body, only the fat cells will slowly die off and your body will naturally flush them out over time, leaving you with a new, sculpted you.
CoolSculpting is a great option as no anesthesia is involved, no cuts or incisions and best of all, no downtime. You can get this procedure done in your lunch break, without breaking the bank.
Am I a Good Candidate for Coolsculpting?
Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the Coolsculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is however, a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they would like to reduce. Request a complimentary consultation with our Coolsculpting consultant who will determine if the Coolsculpting procedure is right for you.
What areas can Coolsculpting treat?
Coolsculpting can treat the following areas:
Flanks (love handles)
What is the difference between fat reduction and weight loss?
Coolsculpting is not for overall weight loss, rather, the treatment provides targeted fat reduction. Fat cells can be compared to a balloon that expands and contracts. When you lose weight through diet and exercise, you do not lose fat cells, they simply become smaller. CoolSculpting on the other hand, eliminates fat cells in specific areas.
How Does Coolsculpting Work?
Coolsculpting is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that literally freezes stubborn fat cells that won’t go away no matter how much you diet or exercise. The results aren’t instant, as your body still must break down and flush out the fat, but you’ll start to see results in as little at 4 weeks. At around three months your Coolsculpting will show the best results. Most people choose Coolsculpting to get rid of unwanted belly fat, but “love handles” and thighs are also common targets.
What are the risks of the Coolsculpting procedure?
During the procedure you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, and mild pinching. You may also feel intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping – sensations that subside as the treatment area becomes numb.
Immediately after your treatment, there may be redness and firmness, transient blanching and/or mild bruising around the edges of the treatment area, tingling and stinging. Typically, these side effects are temporary and resolve completely. Many patients do experience redness in the treated areas for up to a few hours after the applicator is removed. In rare cases, this redness may persist up to 2 weeks, but it will completely resolve itself. If you are feeling uncomfortable in any way, please come in and see us.
When Will I See Results?
CoolSculpting has become one of the hottest trends and most popular ways to remove unwanted fat cells. The procedure itself does not take long, and within an hour’s time, you could be done with your CoolSculpting session at Yaletown Laser Centre. Your initial consultation could take longer, as information is shared and goals are discussed.
After your hour long session, you will be ready to walk out of Yaletown Laser Centre. However, the frozen fat cells need to be naturally flushed out of your body and this process can take up to 3 weeks. You can see results within that time frame and final results could be clearly visible up to six months from the time of treatment. You can even come back for more sessions to target other areas to get a more defined overall look for your body.
Does it Hurt?
The treatment itself is only mildly uncomfortable, but 10-15% of people suffer from delayed onset pain for about two weeks. The pain is caused by nerve endings that begin to revive after the treatment and isn’t an indication of any serious complications. Most people find that wearing loose clothing and using Tylenol relieves discomfort. If you experience itching, an over-the-counter anti-histamine will solve your problem. In rare cases, prescription painkillers are needed. Get plenty of rest, and drink lots of water. If you are worried at any point, contact us. We will help you to get through this phase as comfortably as possible.
How Long Is Each Coolsculpting Session?
Our Coolsculpting consultant will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your Coolsculpting treatment will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. You are free to watch movies, read, check emails, or even take a nap during your treatment.
Is CoolSculpting Effective For Both Men And Women?
Fat cells within your body don’t discriminate between genders, which is why CoolSculpting is such an effective option for both men and women. We all want to look our best, and no matter how much effort you put into your body by dieting or exercising, there are some stubborn fat cells that will just refuse to budge.
As more of us tend to live sedentary lifestyles, due to the nature of our work or personal choice, it has become more important to focus on our health. Whether you have love handles or an extra layer of fat in some areas, CoolSculpting could be the perfect answer for you, no matter if you are male or female. CoolSculpting is for everyone.
Low to Minimal Downtime
Most people don’t need any time off work after Coolsculpting. If you’re one of the few who does experience pain after the Coolsculpting treatment, you may need a couple of days off work to get through the worst of it, but even those who have had this issue have ended up feeling very happy with the results. Contact us if you are one of the few who experience nerve pain after your treatment. Most of our patients can pop in at lunch time, have their Coolsculpting treatment, and get on with their lives as usual with little or no aftereffects.
Does the fat ever come back?
Coolsculpting treatments kill a percentage of fat cells in the treatment area. Those fat cells cannot grow back. However, even when fat is completely removed – as with liposuction – patients who do not regularly exercise and eat healthy are still subject to gain deeper, visceral fat. Therefore, the key to long-lasting results is to maintain a healthy diet and consistent exercise routine!
Is the Coolsculpting® Procedure Safe?
The Coolsculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen and thigh. With over two million Coolsculpting procedures done worldwide, Coolsculpting is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.
How to Maximize Results of Coolsculpting?
Coolsculpting works very well on its own, but you can get even better results with a few simple strategies. Massage, for example, helps to speed up the fat flushing process. Choose light compression massage. You’ll also get much more dramatic results out of your diet and exercise regime, and you can up the ante a bit to boost your fat loss. Now that you know stubborn fat is melting away, you’ll feel much more motivated to diet and train. If you use dietary supplements, please check whether they will be compatible with your Coolsculpting treatment, as some of them may limit results.
Even better results with Venus Legacy™
At Yaletown Laser Centre, we take Coolsculpting treatments to the next level to achieve the body shape you want. A few weeks after your CoolSculpting treatment, we follow with a Venus Legacy™ treatment. The heat released by the Venus Legacy™ device contours and sculpts your body. This is the perfect complement to your Coolsculpting treatment.
"After losing 20lbs, I was looking to slim down those harder parts; like my arms and legs and considering different techniques. I talked to Yaletown's Coolsculpting Coordinator about my expectations and concerns about the procedure and she explained the process and the science behind Coolsculpting. Her knowledge gave me the confidence to get the treatments. I did my arms first and choose two applicators per arm to get the best results. well it has only been a month and the results have been amazing! I'm really happy with the results so far and looking forward to see the results in other areas. I'm officially hooked on Coolsculpting and the great people at Yaletown Laser Centre."
