Why Arbutus Laser Centre?

Arbutus Laser Centre has been a pioneer in body contouring since 2006. We offer the latest devices including CoolSculpting, Ultrashape and VelaShape III. We were one of the first clinics to have both the VelaShape & CoolSculpting and have been involved in over a dozen FDA/Health Canada studies with both devices. These devices can be used individually or used in combination for optimal results.

The clinic’s study coordinator, Jennifer Wasilenchuk, has been with the Arbutus Laser Centre for 14 years and has played a pivotal role in developing treatment techniques and publishing medical research articles with these technologies. She has trained Amy Kounalakis, who has 13 years of previous body contouring experience before starting with the Arbutus Laser Center in 2013.

For years, we’ve had the opportunity to test different devices making it easy to choose the BEST possible solutions and deliver the BEST results to our patients.  All of our devices have one thing in common; they all have significantly sound scientific studies to back the technology’s efficacy.

Our highly trained technicians have attended the CoolSculpting University, and are members of the American Society of Laser Medicine & Surgery as part of their continuing education to maintain technical skills and keep treatment perimeters at their optimum…because even the best equipment is only as good as the people operating it!

Arbutus Laser Centre has a FULL non-invasive Body Contouring Department.  With all of our body contouring solutions, we can make sure you get the BEST results by choosing the right device for YOU!  Please call 604-731-5512 or email info@arbutuslaser.com to book your complimentary consultation today with Jen or Amy.

A little bit about body fat…

A layer of fat covers most of the body. The primary functions of this fat layer is to provide thermoregulation, protection against mechanical trauma, body contour and filling of body space. Most importantly, this fat layer is a source of energy.

  • Adipose fat tissue is loose connective tissue composed of adipocytes. It is technically composed of roughly only 80% fat. Its main role is to store energy in the form of lipids, cushion and insulate the body.
  • Subcutaneous fat tissue is found just beneath the skin and has no effect on one’s health.
  • Visceral fat tissue which is found in the peritoneal cavity packed between the organs (stomach, liver, intestines, kidneys, etc.). This type of fat is linked to metabolic disturbances, such as increased risk for cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes.

While visceral fat can only be reduced by diet and exercise, subcutaneous fat and adipose fat is more resistant to diet and exercise, however, these types of fat can be treated medically.
