Increase Your Confidence With CoolSculpting®

Humphrey Cosmetic Dermatology, Vancouver, British Columbia

We have to graciously accept the finite control we have over our bodies. There will be areas—the back of the arms, above the knees, the small of our bellies—that inevitably resist all the most diligent lifestyle adjustments. For those areas, CoolSculpting® is a proven and permanent treatment consideration.

The scientific principle behind CoolSculpting is called cryolipolysis. Fat cells are frozen during the procedure, after which they gradually die off and leave the body through a natural process. As with every solution we offer, your personalized CoolSculpting treatment plan will begin with a careful understanding of your goals and anatomical needs to achieve natural-looking outcomes and address common areas of concern.

The Submental Region

Submental fullness—also known as a double chin—is often an early symptom of aging, and one of the most stubborn to overcome. Because you can’t hide your chin, fullness in this area often sparks insecurities. With CoolMini, a CoolSculpting applicator perfect for treating small areas, we can freeze targeted fat cells to give you a profile that inspires confidence and pride.

The Waistline

Among men and women, one of the priority areas of excess fat buildup is around the centre. Even with discipline and a healthy lifestyle, this is where fat tends to concentrate. CoolSculpting can eliminate fat cells across the waistline to help you achieve your long term goals. While the elimination of these targeted fat cells will be permanent, others will remain, so it’s important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine in order to maximize benefits.

Other Areas

Stubborn fat in areas such as the sides of the knees, the inner thighs, or the upper arms may persist even when you find yourself at your target weight. For women, the “bra bulge” above and below the back bra strap can also be a source of discomfort. CoolSculpting can effectively help tone and smooth these areas non-surgically to create a more elegant overall silhouette.

Changes resulting from CoolSculpting may be noticeable within the first month following treatment, but the most dramatic changes are achieved after two to three months, as it takes the body time to eliminate the dead fat cells. If you’re curious about how CoolSculpting may fit into your 360° plan, don’t hesitate to reach out, or speak to us at your next appointment!
