CoolSculpting is a revolutionary way to sculpt your body by targeting trouble areas of fat that don't respond well to diet and exercise. Using patented cooling technology to destroy targeted fat cells, Toronto CoolSculpting is able to safely and gently remove fat without harming the surrounding tissue.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a leading non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that can help you meet your body goals. It uses controlled cooling to eliminate that stubborn fat that's difficult to shift, even with diet and exercise. It has proven results that really last and can help you achieve your ideal look.
CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive, requiring no needles, incisions, anesthesia or pain medications. Out patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately following the procedure, and visible results can be seen within two to four months.
How does it work?
The CoolSculpting procedure delivers precisely controlled cooling to target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), destroyed, and then over time your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. The result is a more sculpted you.
- Minimal downtime
Fat freezing during the CoolSculpting procedure
Many of us have stubborn fat despite diet and exercise.
CoolSculpting technology uses controlled cooling to target and destroy only these fat cells.
In the weeks that follow, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates dead cells.
So treated fat cells are gone for good.
It is gone forever
Over the course of about an hour during the treatment, the treatment area is chilled to just above freezing. Since fat cells freeze before other tissue, crystals form only in the targeted fat cells, resulting in fat cell death. During the next one to two months, the fat is gently flushed from the system as part of the body's natural metabolic process.
Which areas can be treated with CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is ideal for treating small areas of localized fat that don't respond well to diet and exercise, including areas in the abdomen, love handles and back.
As of 2019, the FDA and Health Canada have approved CoolSculpting to target 9 specific areas:
- Upper or lower abdomen
- Anterior or posterior flanks
- Bra-line fat
- Upper Arms
- Inner or outer thighs
- Double Chin
- Underneath the buttocks
Is the procedure painful?
Not at all. When the applicator is first applied, there will be an immediate sensation of intense cold, which subsides quickly as the tissue becomes numb. The sensation is very similar to how you would feel if you applied an ice pack to your skin. Following the procedure, there's no discomfort, although the treated area may continue to feel numb for some time.
How long do the results last?
Our Toronto CoolSculpting results are long lasting, because the procedure rids the body of individual fat cells. The adult body does not produce new fat cells. When we gain weight, our existing fat cells expand. Once fat cells are destroyed and removed from the body, you will not gain weight in the treated areas. There is, of course, always the possibility of new fat cells being formed through lifestyle choices.
What is the cost of CoolSculpting?
It is important to remember that everyone is unique so the cost of CoolSculpting treatment will vary from patient to patient. During your consultation with one of our CoolSculpting specialists, you will undergo a thorough assessment and examination to determine a most effective treatment plan tailored to your body. We also offer financing so that you can get immediate access to the power of CoolSculpting treatment with no delay.
What can I expect during my CoolSculpting treatment?
On the day of your CoolSculpting treatment, a member of our staff will review your health history, discuss your concerns, listen to your goals and confirm the treatment plan with you.
You will sit in a comfortable position with the treatment site easily accessible. A thin gel pad is placed on the treatment area to protect the top layer of skin from becoming too cold.
The device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. A gel pad and applicator are applied to the targeted area. Vacuum applicators draw the tissue into the applicator cup. Applicators are secured to the treatment area. All applicators deliver controlled cooling to the targeted fat. Over the course of about an hour, the treatment area is chilled to just above freezing. Since fat cells freeze before other tissue, crystals form only in the targeted fat cells, resulting in fat cell death.
What can I expect immediately following my CoolSculpting treatment?
After the desired treatment time, the machine is turned off, and the applicator and gel pad are removed. Your treatment ends with a vigorous massage of the treatment area. This helps to break up the frozen fat cells and encourages their removal from the body.
No lengthy recovery slowing down your active lifestyle
The beauty of CoolSculpting is that there is no recovery period or downtime after treatment. There are no exercise or activity restrictions following your treatment, and you are free to go about your normal activities. The treatment is non-invasive and non-surgical, which means that you can go back to your day-to-day routine immediately.
Keep in mind that you may experience some side effects following your CoolSculpting treatment. They are usually mild and temporary and can include redness, swelling, bruising, tenderness or skin sensitivity at the treatment site.

CoolSculpting - Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a good candidate for the CoolSculpting procedure?
The CoolSculpting fat-reduction procedure is specially designed for those who have unwanted fat in targeted areas. Unlike weight-loss surgery (e.g. gastric bypass), the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight-loss solution for people who are obese. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting procedure have unwanted fat in certain areas they would like to get rid of. Book a complimentary consultation today with our CoolSculpting specialist to see if it is a suitable procedure for you.
Can the CoolSculpting procedure reduce fat anywhere on my body?
The CoolSculpting procedure can treat visible fat in the submental area (under the chin), thigh, abdomen and flank (love handle), along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll) and upper arm. Our CoolSculpting specialist will create a customized treatment plan that is tailored to your body and your individual goals.
I don't like my double chin. Can the CoolSculpting procedure help me lose it?
Yes, the CoolSculpting procedure can treat excess fat under the chin. Freezing away fat from a double chin is as tolerable as using the CoolSculpting procedure in other parts of the body (e.g., abdomen, flank/side, thighs). With CoolSculpting treatment for a double chin, patients may see results after just 2 visits.
Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they are destroyed and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they are gone for good.
What does it feel like during treatment?
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you typically feel a strong cooling sensation. This should soon dissipate. With some applicators, you'll feel some pulling as suction is applied.
After the treatment, you may feel some tingling as the area is massaged for approximately 2 minutes. Patients are usually able to return to normal activities following their appointment.
Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities almost immediately. Often, patients return to work directly after their CoolSculpting treatment. This will vary between patients and may be dependent on treatment area.
When will I see results?
Most patients see results between 2 and 6 months following treatment. You will still continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment.
How much does the CoolSculpting treatment cost?
The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of treatments needed and your ultimate goals.
