CoolSculpting has been making the headlines as a non-invasive, non-surgical solution for fat reduction. Pioneered by two Harvard scientists, it’s now the number one non-invasive solution for fat reduction worldwide. This month, Dr. Kamani is offering 10% off six treatments—and a complimentary tube of ZO Cellulite Cream.
As a fat reducing treatment, CoolSculpting has definitely been getting hotter. Known in medical circles as cryolipolysis or fat freezing, the procedure consists of placing what looks like a vacuum head on your fat folds and then exposing the area to intense cold (above freezing but lower than your body temperature). The intense cold causes the fat cells near the surface of the skin to crystalize and destruct. These cells are then flushed from the body through natural metabolic processes and the remaining cells condense, causing the area to shrink.
It should be noted that CoolSculpting isn’t a process to lose weight. The procedure is designed to reduce and streamline the pockets of fat that are closer to the surface of the skin. This is why CoolSculpting is an ideal solution for situations like bra bulge, love handles, banana rolls, etc. At Dr. Kamani’s CoolSculpting clinic in Vancouver, patients can request treatment on nearly any area between the neck and visceral knee.
CoolSculpting is a popular alternative for liposuction, particularly for patients who want to treat one of two problem areas. While liposuction is still necessary for those who wish to eliminate deep layers of fat, the procedure is not for the faint of heart. The most common type involves injecting a solution that includes salt water to reduce pain and epinephrine to constrict the blood vessels. A suction tube Is then inserted through strategic incisions to literally suck away the fat. And with all the post-procedure pain, bruising, numbness and swelling, it’s safe to say that it’s the post-recovery that truly sucks.
In contrast, CoolSculpting requires little to no recovery time. Treating an area typically requires 2-6 treatments, usually about 30-45 minutes each. Common side effects after the treatment include redness, numbness, bruising, and tingling which typically subside within a few hours. After surgery, most patients can resume daily activities as usual. However, the cryolipolysis process is not instant. Patients will start to see results after about two weeks, and the area may continue to shrink for up to 2 months.
