Canadians live a very busy lifestyle where maintaining a strict diet and exercise regime can be extremely difficult. Non-surgical fat removal can be used to create better body contours without having to elect for surgery. While surgeries including liposuction and abdominoplasty remain the “gold standard” for body contouring, there are many individuals who are unwilling to proceed with surgery based on personal choices, lifestyle or budget. Therefore, non-surgical fat removal can be used on areas all over the body to reduce isolated pockets of fat that are difficult to eliminate even with diet and exercise. Some of the areas that can be treated include the full abdomen, an abdominal “pooch”, hips, inner thighs, back, love handles, knees and arms. This technology is in growing demand due to the fact there is a demographic of patients who will only consider effective, non-surgical options.
At ICLS we offer patients effective non-surgical fat removal using Zeltiq CoolSculpting®. Zeltiq uses Cryolipolysis cooling technology to effectively remove excess fat from various areas of the body. There are two types of Zeltiq which include both a small and large handpiece. This ensures that the technology can form to various contours and body shapes. On the day of your procedure you will be comfortably reclined in a treatment chair. The hand piece uses suction to remain attached to the treatment site and is left on for 1 hour. During this time, there is minimal discomfort and patients will often work on their laptop, read a book or watch a DVD on a handheld monitor. The cold will destroy a specific layer of your fat cells, which are then naturally excreted over time, resulting in a slimmer and tighter body contour. The best candidates for this procedure should have good overall health and skin tone.
