Freeze Away Fat with CoolSculpting® in Ottawa

Do you have pockets of stubborn fat that seem immune to good diet and exercise? I can’t tell you how often I’ve heard friends, family members and patients complain about their “muffin top” or “back fat” or the dreaded little “spare tire” and “mummy tummy.” We’ve all experienced it. We struggle to eat right daily, limit our alcohol intake, and exercise as often as we can despite our busy work and family schedules. Still, some fat deposits just won’t go! There is a solution, though: CoolSculpting®.

This fat infuriatingly and stubbornly cling to our body. Even at a healthy body weight, most of us are in this constant battle with at least one or two areas of our body that we just can’t seem to get under perfect control. For me, it has always been my inner thighs and my knees. They have been my pet peeves since I was a young adult. Let me correct that statement: they were my pet peeve, as I am in the process of taking care of this once and for all with my new CoolSculpting® machine. If you haven’t already heard about this revolutionary new technology, read on!

What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is the first FDA and Health Canada-approved non-surgical treatment for permanent fat reduction. It works by selectively freezing ONLY the fat cells, a process called cryolipolysis, and it does so without damaging any of the surrounding tissue. This is because fat cells are much more fragile to cold than other cells. It also means that I can be very precise with your treatment plan, targeting only these areas that need fat reduction, sculpting your body to its ideal form.

Once the fat cells freeze through the Coolsculpting® process, they die and are naturally eliminated. What this means for you is that even if your weight stays the same post treatment, your clothes will be looser. Better yet, you won’t have to stare at your love handles or that dreaded fold over your belt line anymore!

What Can it Treat?

Think of CoolSculpting® as the non-surgical version of liposuction. But unlike liposuction, it involves no cuts, no needles, no surgery, no scars, no risk for infections and no anesthesia whatsoever.

CoolSculpting® treatments are extremely safe and proven to be amazingly effective with over 2.5 million treatments done so far worldwide since it was first introduced in the States in 2009.

CoolSculpting® is approved in Canada for treating the resistant pockets of fat in the following areas:

  • Backs of the arms
  • Abdomen
  • Love handles (outer flanks)
  • Bra or upper back bulge
  • Back fat (lower bulge)
  • Gynecomastia (male breasts)
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
The procedure is done in the office, takes one hour of your time per targeted area, and is very comfortable. The maximum number of areas we typically do in a day per patient is four. Most of my patients either take a nap during their treatment, listen to music, read or work on their mobile devices.

This is a ZERO downtime procedure which means that you can resume your normal activities immediately upon leaving the office. You can expect to see noticeable and natural results within 4 weeks with maximum results at 90 days.

With CoolSculpting®, there is no more need to fear looking at yourself in the mirror. Boost your confidence! Visit your Ottawa Cosmetic Clinic to find out more about how CoolSculpting® can help you get rid of your stubborn fat areas.
