Get rid of stubborn, unwanted body fat with non-invasive CoolSculpting® treatments by the experts at Yaletown Laser Centre.

How Does CoolSculpting® Work?

At any age, many of us suffer from unwanted stubborn fat on different parts of our bodies. CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive treatment for both men and women targeting the abdomen, love handles, inner and outer thighs, muffin tops, and arms. We are thrilled to have a safe and results-driven lunchtime procedure that effectively reduces unwanted fat.

  • Target stubborn exercise & diet-resistant fat*
  • Look more sculpted & defined*
  • No anesthesia, needles or injections
  • Low to minimal downtime

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 fat-freezing 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 worldwide, the award-winning CoolSculpting® procedure is offered at Yaletown Laser Centre, your Vancouver Coolsculpting® Premier Provider & Downtown Vancouver’s ONLY DualSculpting Centre!

It 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.

The non-surgical fat reduction treatment 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 on your lunch break, without breaking the bank.

Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?

Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the 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 procedure is right for you.

What Areas Can CoolSculpting® Treat?

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Back rolls
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Arms

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. Fat freezing, on the other hand, removes fat cells in specific areas.

How Does The Procedure 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 post-treatment, your treatment will show the best results. Most people choose this treatment to get rid of unwanted belly fat, but “love handles” and thighs are also common targets.

What Are The Risks Of The 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 fat freezing treatment 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 Session?

Our CoolSculpting® consultant will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your non-surgical fat reduction 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 The Non-Surgical Fat Reduction 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. Fat freezing 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 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 lunchtime, have their treatment, and get on with their lives as usual with little or no aftereffects.

Does The Fat Ever Come Back?

*CoolSculpting® treatments address a percentage of fat cells in the treatment area. However, even when fat is 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 procedure is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen and thigh. With over two million CoolSculpting® procedures done worldwide, the non-surgical fat reduction procedure is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.

How Can I Maximize The 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 a 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 fat freezing 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 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.
