CoolSculpting

An effective alternative to surgery, Coolsculpting® uses a patented cooling procedure – cryolipolysis – to target and eliminate adipose (fat) cells.

 

Use

Cryolipolysis is designed for men and women with very localized excess fat and/or fat that is resistant to weight-loss diets and physical exercise. The technique restores your harmonious body shape without having to undergo surgery.

Coolsculpting® only targets fat cells, cooling them down to a temperature that triggers their apoptosis (cell death) without damaging nearby nerve cells or tissues.

Following cell apoptosis, natural physiological processes occur, with dead cells gradually eliminated by macrophages in the weeks after treatment.

The thickness of the adipose (fat) layer gradually and considerably decreases during the three months following treatment, until the appearance stabilizes.

 

Concerned areas:

  • Stomach and abdomen
  • “Love handles” on the thighs
  • Buttocks and “saddlebags”
  • Inner surface of arms and thighs
  • Double-chin (treatment may be combined with Kybella® to dissolve fat)

During your first consultation, Dr. Meziane listens to you carefully and answers all your questions. He provides all the information you need, as well as his expert opinion and advice.

We perform a silhouette check-up in order to properly define the details of your request.

Dr. Meziane gives you a complete explanation about the treatment.

You receive a quotation for the procedure at the end of the consultation.

Protocol: in most cases, 1 session is sufficient

 

  • Location: Dr. Meziane’s Aesthetic Center
  • Anesthesia: none required
  • Session duration: 35 to 45 minutes are required for each bulge (maximum duration of 4 hours per session if there are many areas to treat)

 

Session information

When the procedure begins, vacuum pressure draws tissue into the applicator between the cooling panels. At first, this can sometimes cause strong pulling, pinching and tightening sensations in the treated area. Some patients may also experience tingling, itching, pain, or contractions.

These sensations generally disappear when the treated area becomes numb as a result of the cold.

  • Post-treatment pain: rare, for a few days
  • Visible signs: bruising, very rarely
  • Resume regular activities: immediately after the session
  • Results: visible 3 weeks after treatment, progressive improvement during the 3 months after treatment, until appearance stabilizes

Precautions: no particular precautions

 

Recommendations and follow-up

Consultations: 2 months and 4 months after the procedure for check-up.
A balanced diet is recommended to go along with results.
