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 and 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® cosmetic procedures 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 an FDA-approved, non-invasive liposuction cosmetic procedure that reduces or eliminates excess amounts of fat pockets by freezing the cells. The revolutionary technology applies non-invasive cool temperatures to freeze fat cells in target areas, which the body naturally removes.
Patients interested in CoolSculpting® treatment may struggle with troublesome, stubborn amounts of fat around the tummy and abdomen, hips, thighs, and arms, and those with 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 healthy lifestyle choices alone. The procedure results in a smooth, toned appearance and a more pleasing silhouette, helping increase self-confidence and a positive self-image.
CoolSculpting® uses a type of technology known as cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis is the targeted freezing of fat cells, ultimately killing the fat cell and allowing the body to process and eliminate it. 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 eliminated, resulting in a dimple.
During a CoolSculpting® cosmetic procedure, paddles are applied to the treatment area 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 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 to 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:
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 a sharper profile.
Unwanted fat on the neck can result in an older, tired appearance. CoolSculpting® can be used to eliminate this fat.
Stubborn amounts of fat on the upper arms, especially on the triceps, can be the most difficult fat to eliminate with diet and healthy lifestyle choices. Often, this amount of fat is the result of genetics. It can be quickly and effectively eliminated with CoolSculpting®.
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 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 amounts of 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 who desire a noticeable and measurable amount of fat reduction in the focal area of contour concern. The areas most apt to have successful outcomes are the upper and lower abdomen, love handles, 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 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 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 boost much-needed confidence.
Numbness or loss of sensation in the target area is expected for at least one week.
Exposure to cold temperatures can cause temporary redness around the treatment area.
Aching and bruising in the area can last for up to one week.
Our in-depth consultation ensures that the results are precisely what you are seeking.
While both CoolSculpting® and Liposuction cosmetic procedures offer the elimination or reduction of unwanted, excess, stubborn fat, these are 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.
SpaMedica has been at the forefront of non-surgical body contouring technologies, particularly those that result in permanent fat reduction like CoolSculpting®. SpaMedica has treated Toronto Coolsculpting® patients for over eight years, having some of the most CoolSculpting® experience in Canada.
SpaMedica combines CoolSculpting® with EM Sculpt 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 and circumferential measurement reduction. We take pride in the fact that Toronto sees us as one of the best CoolSculpting® clinics in Canada!
SculpSure (non-invasive laser heating of fat), Evolve (non-invasive Electroporation of fat), Venus Legacy, EMsculpt, and BodyFX can all be deployed on your unwanted localized collections of fat.
At SpaMedica, CoolSculpting® cosmetic procedures are performed under the supervision of Dr. Roskies’ as an outpatient treatment and require no topical or local anesthesia. During your CoolSculpting® consultation, your consultant will select the appropriate applicator to match 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 cold temperature exposure duration 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 immune system eats up the fat cells, and the protein carrier system “mops up” the triglycerides and free fatty acids. There is no risk from the released fat on your cardiovascular, cholesterol or lipid system.
In general, six 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 following hours to help with the slight discomfort. Patients return home and 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 three weeks, but it takes approximately six weeks for the final results of each CoolSculpting® treatment to show.
Following six weeks, additional CoolSculpting® treatments may be recommended by your consultant to achieve the best results. Most patients receive two treatments, six weeks apart, with the final results manifesting 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 minimal recovery, 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® cosmetic 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, postoperative skin hypersensitivity in the treatment area is relatively standard. This generally disappears in several days, but some CoolSculpting® patients have a persistent hypersensitivity that can be relieved by nonsteroidal, anti-inflammatory medication or Gabapentin.
Most CoolSculpting® patients can expect 2-3 centimetres 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 or Venus Legacy until we find a non-invasive modality that works. We guarantee a visible result.
Suppose you want a larger amount of fat destroyed than the non-invasive lipo program can provide. In that case, you can apply a significant amount of your spending and use it against BodyTite liposuction, which is guaranteed to work.
