How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting is a unique method of fat destruction using cold temperature. The area to be treated (abdomen, flanks, back, chin, knees, and inner/outer thighs) is drawn into a suction applicator and the area is cooled to destroy fat cells without destroying muscle or skin cells.

The treatment is well tolerated, completely non-invasive, and takes about an 35 minutes to one hour per area. A minimum of 20% of fat cells are destroyed in each session.

You can return to normal activities immediately. It is possible to have some temporary minor bruising, tingling and numbness. Side effects are rare.


More about our clinical research studies…

The Arbutus Laser Centre was the first to discover using massage techniques post CoolSculpting procedures to increase fat destruction. We learned the massaging technique destroyed more fat cells resulting in an overall higher reduction of fat cells. This led to further massage studies resulting in published articles and speaking at the American Society of Laser and Medicine Conference in 2015. Please see below if you’re interested in reading the full articles.

The Arbutus Laser Centre was also the research facility for using CoolSculpting on new areas of the body such as inner thighs, flanks and arms. We are proud to have contributed to the development and success of CoolSculpting in its primary years.
