Coolsculpting FAQs

Although men and women tend to show fat in different areas, the CoolSculpting® procedure works for both men and women. The procedure is designed to eliminate fat in specific areas and the consultation process is unique to you. Whistler Medical Aesthetics will guide you in setting realistic goals to help us sculpt your body the way you want it to look. The CoolSculpting® procedure is not a weight loss solution.

During the procedure fat cells are frozen, become crystallized, and then die over the next 8-12 weeks. The dead fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated by your body. CoolSculpting® results are long term because those fat cells that are frozen and die in the procedure are gone for good, which means that bulge of belly fat or your love handles are eliminated!

Before the CoolSculpting® procedure we will work with you to ensure that you understand where the treatment is going to be applied. For the first few minutes, you will likely feel intense cold in the treated area as it becomes numb. A treatment typically lasts 40-45 minutes per area, and after the initial chilling the remainder of the procedure is generally a relaxing experience. Most applicators use a vacuum to draw fatty tissue in, you may also feel some tugging, pulling, and/or mild pinching.

We can provide you with a magazine or book to read during your CoolSculpting® treatment. You can also access our free Wi-Fi to read and check your emails, take a nap, or whatever feels comfortable for you. You can relax while you say goodbye to stubborn fat.

The CoolSculpting® procedure is completely non-surgical: no needles, no surgery, and no downtime. You will likely be able to return to your normal activities after the treatment, or go back to work if you need to!

How Does It Work?

Years ago, scientists at Harvard University observed that some children who ate popsicles got dimples in their cheeks. The scientists—Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD—realized that the popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells.

The idea that cold can target fat cells—without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue—was the insight behind Cryolipolysis®, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based.

The CoolSculpting® procedure safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystalized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

Treatment Results

Following the procedure, typical side effects include redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, skin sensitivity and numbness. Numbness can persist for up to several weeks. There may be a sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental (chin) treatment. These effects are temporary and generally resolve within days or weeks.

Treatment Considerations

The CoolSculpting® procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting® procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease or paroxysmal cold haemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting® procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask your healthcare practitioner if the CoolSculpting® procedure is right for you.

Doctor Kennea use to be my Family Doctor. She has the best bedside manor I have experienced. I have been also seeing her for my medical aesthetics for the past 3 or 4 years. From Juvaderm, Botox and more recently CoolSculpting. and I’m always impressed with my results. The Team are fantastic and make you feel comfortable and in great hands. Doctor Kenna and her team are professional, experienced and I highly recommend them. If you have a trouble spot of fat that you’re wanting gone for summer, I would jump on the CoolSculpting now and you’ll be so glad you did. After two kids I have extra belly fat and had two rounds of cool sculpting and I am now wearing fitted clothing again! So happy.
