CoolSculpting – Frequently Asked Questions

Call CoolSculpting Toronto Clinic today to get all your questions answered about the treatment!

Is CoolSculpting Right for Me?

It is important to note that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure, and will not produce the same results as other invasive procedures such as gastric bypass surgery. CoolSculpting helps with contouring your body using controlled cooling, causing fat cells to die and be eliminated by natural processes. If you have been following a healthy diet and make exercise a regular part of your lifestyle, but just can’t seem to see any change in your problem areas, CoolSculpting may be your perfect solution!

Note that clients who have cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria should not be seeking CoolSculpting Treatments.

How much does CoolSculpting Cost?

The cost of CoolSculpting depends on the areas you are having treated and the amount of visits you will have to make to the CoolSculpting Toronto Clinic. Clients of CoolSculpting usually pay around $2,000 – $2,500 for their whole CoolSculpting process.

Visiting a qualified and experienced clinician at CoolSculpting Toronto clinic will allow you to come up with a customized treatment plan that aims to get to your goals and stay within your budget.

How Long is a Treatment? How Many will I Need?

While it varies by client to client, the time it takes to get one area treated with CoolSculpting is approximately one hour. Many clients will have many treatments at once, which will cut down the time of your treatment if seeking CoolSculpting for many areas.

Where can CoolSculpting Remove Fat?

CoolSculpting can be used in any problem area where fat cells are accumulated. CoolSculpting Toronto Clinic provides people solutions to areas of their body they see as “problem areas”, using fat-freezing technology for many areas of the body, including:

  • Chin
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Thighs and knees
  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Buttocks

Can CoolSculpting Be Used on My “Double Chin”?

If you are very self conscious about your double chin, or the skin under your chin and on your neck, CoolSculpting can offer a very viable solution. When patients use CoolSculpting on their double chin area, they often see results in just one to two visits!

Where Does the Fat Go?

CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling, or fat freezing to target, freeze, and eventually kill the fat cells in your problem areas. In the weeks following your CoolSculpting procedure, your body will naturally eliminate the fat cells, and you can say goodbye to your problem areas for good!

What Does it Feel Like? Are There Side Effects?

CoolSculpting uses freezing technology, so there may be a little pain with the initial surge of controlled cooling that is applied by the applicator. After a while, the area numbs and you cannot feel anything for the rest of the procedure. The sculpting part of the procedure uses a vacuum to draw tissue into the applicator cup, resulting in the feeling of mild pinching, tugging or pulling. After the procedure, clients may feel a little sore, feeling a bit of tingling, numbness, bruising and soreness, as well as they may see redness on the skin for up to 2 weeks. Rest assured, all side effects will completely dissipate.

Rare side effects include that you should be aware of, and discuss with your CoolSculpting Toronto Clinic professional include:

  • Delayed pain that may come on several days after treatment
  • Hyperpigmentation: A colouring of the skin may occur after treatment. It will resolve itself.
  • Freeze burn: First- and second-degree freeze burn may occur during treatment. It typically resolves without sequelae with proper care.
  • Dizziness, lightheadedness, nausea, feeling flush, sweating, or fainting during or immediately after the treatment.
  • Subcutaneous induration: Hardness or nodules that can develop within the treatment area and may cause pain.
  • Paradoxical hyperplasia: Enlarged tissue volume that may develop 2-5 months following treatment that may require surgical intervention.
  • Hernia: Treatment may lead to hernia which can require surgical intervention.

Is CoolSculpting Safe?

After rigorous study, and clearance from the FDA, CoolSculpting is the #1 Fat Reduction treatment that exists out there. Its safety has been proven through over 60 studies published in academic journals, and over 4 million people worldwide have used this method.

What do I do after CoolSculpting?

After CoolSculpting treatments, a follow up appointment with your CoolSculpting Toronto Clinic professional will assess your progress and need for further treatments. Once you have completed all your treatments, you will want to maintain a proper exercise routine as well as eat healthy. You want to ensure that all your treatments are supported by a healthy lifestyle to get maximum long-term results.

When Do I See Results?

You will not see results immediately following treatment, but you will begin to notice changes in your body after 3 weeks. After 2 months, you’ll be able to notice the full results of your CoolSculpting procedure. Your body will continue to flush out and eliminate the dead fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months following treatment.

Do Take Special Supplements or Follow a Strict Regimen Following Treatment?

Since CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, no medications or supplements are required following treatment. It is always recommended that you follow a healthy exercise schedule and a well-balanced diet to maximize results.

What if I Gain Weight after CoolSculpting?

Many clients who use CoolSculpting find that the treatment was what motivated them to stay fit and maintain a healthy physique. However, if you do relapse and gain weight, you will find that weight will distribute evenly over your body, rather than just in the areas that you previously determined as problem areas.
