Coolsculpting is a Health Canada-approved device, developed to kill fat cells without harm to your skin or other tissues such as nerves, or muscle. When fat cells are frozen, they crystallize and die by a process called “apoptosis”. This process is similar to natural cell death occurring with normal aging. Over time, the body works to naturally eliminate these non-living fat cells from the body – never to return! This allows for relatively fast, natural, non-invasive body contouring with some weight loss, without exercise or dieting!
Over the past decade more than 3 million Coolsculpting procedures have been performed. With more than 70 clinical studies validating it’s effectiveness, it is no surprise that Coolsculpting has won the New Beauty Award for three consecutive years!
Other non-invasive options, include radio-frequency, ultrasound or laser modalities. These are often painful and are significantly less effective. Coolsculpting is typically pain-free. A thin, protective pad helps to protect the skin and make the treatment more comfortable.
