Men and women in Vancouver often find themselves faced with frustrating pockets of fat on their bodies that just won’t go away no matter how many times they go to the gym or how many diets they try. If you’re one of them, CoolSculpting may be just the ticket to getting rid of those last few inches of fat for good! And what’s better – Heights Laser Centre is a CoolSculpting-certified medical spa, meaning Dr. Jaffer and his team have the most advanced training and technology available to Vancouver area patients. Still, every year Dr. Jaffer consults with many area residents who just aren’t sure if CoolSculpting is worth it. Keep reading to learn about how CoolSculpting compares to liposuction.

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is the only Health Canada and FDA-approved, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment on the market today. It works by eliminating those stubborn deposits of fat through a controlled cooling process. CoolSculpting gently and effectively targets fat cells under the skin but does not harm the skin itself. When specific areas of fat are targeted with these super low temperatures, the fat cells die and never return. In fact, they are removed from the body through its natural process of elimination over the course of several weeks. Your final results will leave you with a body that is more sculpted and defined.

CoolSculpting is considered a long-term treatment because the fat cells that are targeted are destroyed and leave the body for good. But CoolSculpting does not prevent the remaining fat cells from growing; therefore, Dr. Jaffer recommends his Vancouver patients maintain a healthy diet and consistent exercise routine to help prevent the remaining fat cells from enlarging. If you gain a substantial amount of weight, the remaining fat cells will grow, and your CoolSculpting results will be negated.
