The Details of How CoolSculpting Mississauga Works
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary non-surgical alternative to fat reduction. It is based on the theory of “Cryolipolysis”. When I was a dermatology resident, I learned about a condition called “popsicle panniculitis”. If a child holds a popsicle for a prolonged period of time against the inside of their cheek, the cheek could appear hollowed out. The cold of the popsicle destroyed fat cells in the child’s cheek. Two researchers from Harvard University studied this observation, and determined that fat freezes at a different temperature than the surrounding tissues. And from this research they developed the CoolSculpting technology using the proprietary process called cryolipolysis.
CoolSculpting is not about weight loss – you need diet and exercise to achieve weight loss. Many men and women have stubborn pockets of fat that may be genetically programmed, and are resistant to fad diets, supplements, lunges, crunches and squats. Ask a fitness coach or personal trainer and they will confirm: you can’t spot target a bulge or lump with vigorous exercise or dieting. But you can target these stubborn areas with CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting is the number one non-surgical fat reduction in the world. It was approved by Health Canada in 2008. At O’Neill Cosmetic Dermatology, we use the latest CoolSculpting technology known as 3D cooling. These newest applicators have reduced the treatment time to 35 minutes for most areas. CoolSculpting is a popular alternative to liposuction because:
- No incisions
- No downtime
- Comfortable – many patients nap, read, or use their mobile device during treatment
- Effective – in one session, expect to see a measurable improvement of 20% – 30% reduction in fat on average
CoolSculpting safely targets fat cells, leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. The fat is crystallized, resulting in cell death. Your body will gradually eliminate these dead cells over a period of 1-3 months on average. After age 20, we do not grow new fat cells. So once they’re gone, they’re gone for good!
To date, millions of CoolSculpting treatments have been performed worldwide. The results are proven, noticeable and lasting: you can look incredible from every angle! There are over 100 peer reviewed studies confirming CoolSculpting’s ability to reduce fat and contour your body.
How a Fat Cell Dies after CoolSculpting
Your body has a fixed number of fat cells. These cells can become larger if you gain weight, and smaller if you lose weight.
With a CoolSculpting treatment, the fat cells freeze, and begin to die in 1-3 days.
During the death of the fat cell, it begins to collapse.
Following your CoolSculpting procedure, the body’s “garbage collectors” digest the dead fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated from the body.
What to Expect During your CoolSculpting Mississauga Treatment
Your body contouring is our business! All treatments are overseen by Dr. O’Neill, who is a graduate of CoolSculpting University. You can expect a caring, thoughtful, experienced technician who is CoolSculpting University and Master Class certified. CoolSculpting expertise is critical: up to 70% of your result depends on the treatment plan and applicator choice, applicator placement, and after treatment massage.
During your complimentary consultation, we will discuss your goals and map out a customized treatment program. We will pinch your fat (no kidding!), mark the areas to be treated, and then place the correct applicator on the bulge. You will feel a cold sensation for the first several minutes (similar to using an ice pack), and then the area becomes numb. We get you cosy with blankets and pillows. Most applicators take 35 minutes. After removing the applicator, the technician will perform a prescribed 2-3 minute frozen fat massage to the area. This is critical! Studies show a 68% improvement with massage. The massage damages the crystallized fat cells, ensuring cell death. The length of your visit will depend on how many areas you wish to treat. You can resume your regular activities right away.
