Body Goals with SpaMedica: Elevate Your Confidence This Summer

The desire to feel confident and comfortable in your own skin is valid, especially as summer approaches. 

Whether it’s worrying about some extra weight, those pesky wrinkles or uneven skin tone, these concerns can be a bummer. 

At SpaMedica, you can achieve your summer body goals with the help of our recommended non-invasive procedures. These procedures can sculpt your figure, tighten loose skin and achieve a smoother, more even complexion — all while leaving you feeling confident and ready for your summer looks! 

In this post, you’ll learn the benefits of body contouring (alongside other solutions), what to expect with these treatment options and their safety profile. 


CoolSculpting is a cutting-edge body-contouring technique that uses controlled cold temperatures to eliminate stubborn fat in specific body areas without causing any harm to the surrounding tissues. This non-invasive and safe treatment is popular because it allows you to achieve a more toned look without surgery or other invasive therapies.  

CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis technology to destroy fat cells by freezing them. This method is effective in reducing localized pockets of fat in the body. 

Here’s the step-by-step to expect during the treatment: 

  • A gel pad and vacuum will be applied to the target area. 
  • Then, controlled cooling is delivered to the body area using the device. 
  • As a result, fat cells in that area will begin to freeze and crystallize, which will ultimately lead to their death. 
  • Over time, your body’s natural healing process will take over and remove the dead cells from the system. 

CoolSculpting is a relatively painless procedure. While you may feel a strong cooling sensation initially, it usually subsides after several minutes. 

What are the Benefits of CoolSculpting? 

CoolSculpting in abdominal region: Before & After

  • Non-invasive procedure: CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that removes body fat without needles, anesthesia or incisions. It eliminates those associated risks and reduces recovery time. 
  • Minimal downtime: You can resume your daily activities soon after CoolSculpting. Although you may experience temporary soreness or redness, these side effects are mild and will subside within a few days to weeks. 
  • Targeted fat reduction: It’s a non-invasive treatment that targets stubborn fat in specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs or flanks, that are otherwise resistant to diet and exercise. 
  • Safe and effective: It’s a safe procedure with an established safety record. 
  • Long-lasting results: It permanently destroys fat cells, providing long-lasting results for those who achieve their desired outcome. Following treatment, you should maintain a healthy lifestyle to optimize results. 

What are the Timeline Expectations? 

Each treatment session typically lasts 30 – 35 minutes. Although determined by individual factors, we recommend at least 2 treatments to start seeing results you’ll be happy with. 

Results emerge around six weeks post-treatment and fully appear by the 12th week. 

 How Safe is CoolSculpting? 

CoolSculpting is relatively safe, as demonstrated by multiple studies. But possible side effects after the procedure include: 

  • Pain on touch: Over-the-counter pain relievers can be used to manage any discomfort you may have.  
  • Blanching or bruising: Both should fade entirely within one to two weeks. 
  • Redness and swelling: Using cold compresses can reduce inflammation. 
  • Aching or itching on the area: This is temporary but, if very bothersome, can be soothed with topical creams or ointments. 
  • Increased skin sensitivity: Handle the area gently and avoid wearing abrasive clothing. 

Although side effects are expected with almost any treatment, the good news with CoolSculpting is that these are usually mild and resolve on their own within a few days or weeks. 

During your consultation, you can share any concerns or fears with our medical professionals and be assured that we will take all necessary actions and implement appropriate measures to address them effectively. 


Morpheus8 is a cutting-edge approach to body rejuvenation that combines microneedling with radiofrequency to stimulate collagen production and tighten skin. 

Morpheus8 works using low-frequency electromagnetic (EM) waves to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin.  

Here’s how it works:  

  • The handheld applicator emits EM energy at certain depths within your skin. 
  • This energy heats targeted areas within specific layers of your skin, without causing harm to the surrounding skin. 
  • By doing so, your body’s response is triggered, which stimulates the production of new collagen. 
  • Over time, as new collagen is produced and integrated, your skin becomes tighter and firmer. 

Full disclosure: This procedure can involve some temporary discomfort, depending on your pain threshold. But we offer additional comfort measures, such as the use of a topical numbing cream. 

What are the Benefits of Morpheus8? 

  • Non-invasive: Morpheus8 is a non-invasive procedure that delivers radiofrequency energy without surgical incisions or needles. It’s a good alternative to surgery. 
  • Minimal downtime: You may experience redness, swelling or soreness for a few days, but you can usually resume most daily activities soon after treatment. 
  • Safe for all: Morpheus8 is safe for most people, but during your consultation, we will ask you questions surrounding pre-existing conditions or pregnancy, that could be contra-indicated for this procedure. Morpheus8 is approved for various skin tones. 
  • Long-lasting results: Morpheus8 boosts collagen production, and these results can last over a year, depending on age and skin condition.

Morpheus8 helps with the treatment of the following: 

  • Sun damage  
  • Sagging skin or jowls 
  • Wrinkles and fine lines 
  • Dull or tired-looking skin 

What are the Timeline Expectations? 

Each treatment session typically lasts 45 minutes to 1 hour. There is minimal downtime (usually about a week). 

You can see improvements following Morpheus8 treatment within few days. Full results appear in 3 weeks with continual improvement for 3 months. 

How Safe is Morpheus8? 

Morpheus8 is approved by Health Canada. 

Morpheus8 treatment has potential risks and complications, like any other procedure but they can be mitigated. Possible side effects include: 

  • Redness: In most cases, redness is resolved in the days after the procedure. 
  • Swelling: As in the case of redness, the skin may appear flushed and swollen immediately after the procedure. However, this should subside within a few days. 
  • Bruising: Bruising may be visible immediately after the procedure, but this also fades away with time. 

Laser Hair Removal 

Laser hair removal is the most preferred non-invasive method for effective and long-lasting reduction in unwanted hair growth. It’s commonly used on areas like the face, legs, underarms and bikini line. 

Laser hair removal uses the principle of photothermolysis, which is the breakdown of a substance (hair follicles, in this case) caused by exposure to light and heat. 

Here’s what to expect: 

  • The handheld device emits laser pulses (concentrated laser beams that have specific wavelengths). 
  • These wavelengths are chosen to be selectively absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicles. 
  • Once absorbed, the light energy is converted into heat. 
  • This heat affects the follicular structures responsible for hair growth, resulting in cell death due to heat. 
  • As a result, hair growth is significantly reduced, leading to smoother skin that lasts for an extended period. 

What are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal? 

  • Longer-lasting results: Laser hair removal is a long-lasting solution that reduces hair growth significantly. You won’t have to deal with the hassle of frequent shaving, waxing or other hair removal methods. 
  • Time-saving and cost-effective: Laser hair removal is a time-saving and cost-effective alternative to traditional methods like shaving or waxing. It provides smoother skin for longer periods after the initial treatment sessions, making it a convenient option for busy individuals. 
  • Precise results: Laser hair removal is a precise method that removes hair without harming the surrounding skin. It’s effective for specific areas of hair removal while keeping the surrounding skin safe. 
  • Reduced ingrown hairs: Laser hair removal prevents ingrown hairs by directly targeting the hair follicles, reducing the chances of the hair growing back under the skin. 
  • Improved skin quality: Laser hair removal can improve skin quality in treated areas by stimulating collagen production. This results in smoother, tighter and more revitalised skin over time. 

What are the Timeline Expectations? 

Each treatment session typically lasts 15 – 30 minutes per zone. 

Recovery is usually simple following laser hair removal. Most people see permanent results after 3 to 7 sessions. 

How Safe is Laser Hair Removal? 

Laser hair removal is a safe option, especially because trained professionals carry it out. 

Possible side effects that you should be aware of include: 

  • Redness and irritation: Laser hair removal damages hair follicles, causing temporary redness and irritation in affected areas, which usually resolves within a few days. 
  • Swelling: Swelling is a common side effect of laser hair removal, particularly after the first treatment. It usually goes away within a day or two. 
  • Skin lightening or darkening: Laser hair removal may cause pigment changes, especially in people with darker skin, but they are usually temporary. In the past, lasers worked best with light skin. But thankfully, nowadays, we have new lasers that treat all skin types. 
  • Thermal injury: Laser hair removal treatments carry a slight risk of burning the treatment area. 
  • Scarring: Laser treatments carry a very small risk of laser burns and scars. 

At SpaMedica, we minimize these risks by using the right combination of lasers, techniques and knowledge.
