At SpaMedica, CoolSculpting® starts at $799 for a small applicator. In contrast, treatments with a large applicator begin at $1,199.
After the treatment, CoolSculpting® Ontario patients will have some swelling, tingling and there may be numbness in the region but there is no extensive recovery period. Patients can immediately return to normal daily activities.
CoolSculpting® treatments in Toronto take approximately 1 hour per area to perform. Patients often return for a second or third cycle, repeated every 6 to 12 weeks to enhance the result.
CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive liposuction procedure that reduces or eliminates excess fat pockets by freezing the cells. The revolutionary technology applies non-invasive cool temperatures to freeze fat cells in target areas, which the body then naturally removes.
Patients who are interested in CoolSculpting® treatment may be those who struggle with troublesome, stubborn fat around the tummy and abdomen, hips, thighs and arms, and those who have a double chin. CoolSculpting® can help permanently eliminate excess, unwanted fat in areas where it is difficult to lose weight from exercise, diet, and other lifestyle choices alone. The procedure results in a smooth, toned appearance, and more pleasing silhouette overall, and can help contribute to feelings of self-confidence and a positive self-image.
CoolSculpting® uses a type of technology known as Cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis is the targeted freezing of fat cells, which ultimately kills the fat cell and allows the body to process and eliminate it completely. The technology was developed by two Harvard scientists who noticed that children who ate frozen treats, such as popsicles, developed dimples, even when they were not born with them. The dimples were created when small pockets of fat in the cheeks were frozen, and then subsequently eliminated, resulting in a dimple.
During a CoolSculpting procedure, paddles are applied to the area of treatment, and then used to cool the tissues to 4 degrees. At this temperature, your skin will not be affected; however, this temperature is detrimental to fat cells. In the weeks following your treatment, fat cells in the treated area will die off, and will be eliminated by your body naturally.
SpaMedica has the best selection of non-surgical liposuction technology in Canada. Each non-invasive liposuction program is customized to include the best possible combination of devices that will give the most effective permanent fat reduction, skin tightening, and muscle toning results. At the time of your consultation, your consult coordinator will review the best combination of technologies to provide the results you are looking for.
SpaMedica is Canada’s largest, oldest, and most respected private cosmetic laser center. Why are there so many non-surgical liposuction device options? The answer is simple: using only one device will not give the best results. Superior non-surgical liposuction, permanent fat reduction, tightening and smoothing outcomes are only achieved by the customized combination of two or more of the following technologies that work in different, synergistic and summative ways to achieve the best results, including:
● The new Evolve Tite Trim and Tone total tissue contouring
● SculpSure hyperthermic permanent fat removal
● Morpheus8 body fractional radiofrequency fat destruction
Simply put, the best results are achieved by combining the best technologies.
Double chins or unwanted fat on the jawline can be effectively eliminated by CoolSculpting, resulting in more pleasing facial proportions and sharper profile.
Unwanted fat on the neck can result in an older, tired appearance. CoolSculpting can be used to eliminate this fat.
Stubborn fat on the upper arms, especially on the triceps, can be the most difficult fat to eliminate with diet and lifestyle choices. Often, this fat is the result of genetics. It can be easily and effectively eliminated with ColoSculpting.
Excess fat on all areas of the back, including the upper back and shoulders, can be targeted with CoolSculpting. Often, CoolSculpting of the back is combined with treatments of the abdomen, including the hips and stomach.
Unwanted fat around the midsection and stomach is some of the most difficult fat to eliminate. CoolSculpting can be used to target fat on the tummy, as well as other areas of the abdomen.
Both the inner and outer thighs can be addressed with CoolSculpting.
Unwanted fat around the hips, including love handles, can be easily eliminated.
CoolSculpting patients may wish to combine thigh treatments with other lower body treatments, such as those that target unwanted fat on the buttocks.
CoolSculpting® candidates are individuals with realistic expectations and who desire a noticeable and measurable reduction of fat in the focal area of contour concern. The areas most apt to have successful outcomes are the upper and lower abdomen, love handles, as well as inner and outer thighs and double chin.
Unsuitable candidates are those who do not have enough localized fat, are pregnant or have infected lesions in the areas of treatment. Patients with too much fat are also not good candidates and should consider SpaMedica’s state-of-the-art BodyTite liposuction procedure.
Body contours that show gradually over time have a natural appearance.
Target Different Areas
The thighs, waist, and stomach are the most popular areas but CoolSculpting® can be used to enhance many body areas.
Results can last a lifetime, so long as a healthy weight is maintained.
Contouring the body and removing stubborn fat pockets can be a much-needed confidence boost.
Numbness or loss of sensation in the target area is expected for at least 1 week.
The exposure to cold temperatures can cause temporary redness around the treatment area.
Aching and bruising in the area can last for up to 1 week.
Our in-depth consultation ensures the results are exactly what you are seeking.
While both CoolSculpting and Liposuction offer the elimination or reduction of unwanted, excess, stubborn fat, these are both very different procedures.
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that involves the external application of paddles, which are used to cool the skin and freeze unwanted fat cells. With liposuction, small incisions are made at the treatment site and a suction tool, called a cannula, is used to remove unwanted fat.
Both Sculpsure and CoolSculpting are non-invasive body contouring treatments that reduce stubborn fat, and do not require any downtime or recovery time. However, while CoolSculpting uses cold temperature to freeze fat, Sculpsure uses laser technology to eliminate unwanted fat cells.
SpaMedica has been at the forefront of nonsurgical body contouring technologies, particularly those that result in permanent fat reduction like CoolSculpting®. SpaMedica has been treating Toronto Coolsculpting patients for over 8 years, having some of the most CoolSculpting® experience in Canada.
SpaMedica combines CoolSculpting® with, EMsculpt electromagnetic energy and Morpheus8, in a coordinated, customized, non-invasive Body Contouring program that guarantees visible results.
At SpaMedica, patients receive the best possible combination of focal body contouring fat reduction technologies with the highest probability of permanent fat reduction and circumferential measurement reduction. We take pride in the fact that Toronto sees us as one of the best CoolSculpting® clinics in Canada!
At SpaMedica, CoolSculpting® treatments are performed under the supervision of Dr. Roskies’ as an outpatient treatment and requires no topical or local anesthesia.
During your CoolSculpting® consultation, your Consultant will select the appropriate applicator to match with your goals: CoolCurve+, CoolCore, CoolMax, CoolFit or Cool Smooth.
One of SpaMedica’s trained technicians will apply the CoolSculpting® applicator to the area of unwanted focal fat – typically the abdomen, both lower and upper, as well as the hip and flanks. Once the appropriate parameters for the CoolSculpting® are entered, the device will gently suck the unwanted fat up into the chamber.
The temperature within the chamber is then dropped to below freezing – beginning the permanent death cycle of the fat cells exposed to the freezing temperatures. If the duration of the cold temperature exposure is long enough (40-60 minutes), between 22 and 30% of fat cells will permanently be removed.
When the fat cell dies, a safe and slow release of the contents of the fat cells occurs. The body’s own immune system eats up the fat cells, and the protein carrier system “mop up” the triglycerides and free fatty acids. There is no risk from the released fat on your cardiovascular, cholesterol or lipid system.
In general, 6 weeks after a single treatment noticeable results will be seen in body contouring and fat reduction.
Non-surgical liposuction treatments including CoolSculpting® require little prep work for patients. Before the appointment, patients should avoid getting sunburned and not apply lotions or creams to the target area on the day of the procedure. We may also advise that you avoid medications like aspirin to reduce the likelihood of bruising post-treatment.
Immediately after the CoolSculpting® treatment, the skin will be raised, swollen and feel frozen. Our team will show patients how to massage the area over the hours that follow to help with the slight discomfort.
Patients return home and will likely experience several days where the skin and soft tissue in the treatment area is hypersensitive. The skin hypersensitivity will eventually improve and disappear. There may also be some bruising and discoloration from the suction.
Patients may start to see contour improvements and fat reduction after 3 weeks but It takes approximately 6 weeks for the final results of each individual CoolSculpting® treatment to show.
Following 6 weeks, additional CoolSculpting® treatments may be recommended by your consultant to achieve the best results. Most patients receive 2 treatments, 6 weeks apart with the final results being manifested in the 12th week. Most clinics can only offer Coolsculpting, but, at SpaMedica, if it is clear you are a non-responder, we will switch you to one of our many non-invasive fat destruction technologies until we find one that does work.
CoolSculpting® comes with a very minimal recovery period and patients can return to daily activities immediately after the treatment. Running, high impact exercise and contact sports may be moderately uncomfortable if the skin feels hypersensitive, but participation will not delay or disrupt the CoolSculpting® results.
During the CoolSculpting® treatment, the patient will feel some mild to moderate discomfort from the initiation of the strong suction. But as the skin and fat temperature falls, there is no discomfort.
However, the postoperative hypersensitivity of the skin in the treatment area is fairly common. This generally disappears in several days, but some CoolSculpting® patients do have a persistent hypersensitivity that can be relieved by nonsteroidal, anti-inflammatory medication and/or Gabapentin.
Most CoolSculpting® patients can expect 2-3 centimeters of fat reduction after a single treatment cycle. It takes at least 6-12 weeks to begin to see the results and many return for a second treatment after a couple of months and a third treatment cycle three months after that.
At SpaMedica, unlike other clinics, if CoolSculpting does not work, we will switch you to the Evolve Trim, Sculpsure, EMsculpt, BodyFX and/or Venus Legacy, until we find a non-invasive modality that works. WE GUARANTEE a visible result
If you want more fat destruction than the non-invasive lipo program could provide, then you can apply a significant amount of all that you spent and apply it against BodyTite Liposuction, which is guaranteed to work.
