Ah, summer! The sun, the vacations, the cocktails by the pool. But the summer season also means swimsuits and after months of confinement, our body is not necessarily as we would like it to be. Spring is the perfect time to get back your body so you can feel good about yourself during the summer months, and CoolSculpting® is just one more tool to help you get there! Find out what’s behind this revolutionary technology!
Whether it’s due to hormonal changes or simply the age-related decrease in basal metabolic rate, it’s normal for the body to change over the years. It is not uncommon for fatty deposits to form and become localized in certain areas, thereby transforming the silhouette. Despite a balanced diet and regular exercise, it is unfortunately common for these areas of fat to be difficult to eliminate. It is those areas of stubborn fat accumulation that CoolSculpting® technology targets. Thanks to the principle of cryolipolysis, with CoolSculpting®, it is possible to reshape and redefine the silhouette by eliminating localized fat deposits permanently.
The Science Behind CoolSculpting®
Through scientific studies and experiments, researchers at Harvard University have demonstrated that fat cells, also known as adipocytes, are more sensitive to cold than other cells. They, therefore, developed the unique CoolSculpting® procedure, which is based on the principle of cryolipolysis, i.e. the destruction of fat cells by cold. In concrete terms, fat cells exposed to prolonged intense cold crystallize and enter a process of programmed natural death (apoptosis). The treated fat cells are then gradually eliminated naturally via the lymphatic system in the weeks following a session. By releasing these fat cells, the body allows the surrounding unaffected cells to condense and significantly reduce the thickness of the treated fat layer. It is important to know that fat cells are composed of an envelope and content. Reducing their size or emptying them of their contents, as proposed by many other platforms on the market, will only offer a temporary slimming result and will not prevent the cell from regaining volume or filling up again. The revolutionary CoolSculpting® technology sets itself apart by offering destruction of the fat cell envelope and contents for permanent results.

How does CoolSculpting work?
The consultation: an essential step
An in-clinic consultation is essential before any treatment to know your expectations, evaluate your silhouette in detail and identify the treatable areas. This step is essential because it allows us to validate that CoolScupting® is the technology best suited to your needs so that you can obtain the results you desire.
The course of a session
Optimal results with ZWave
Also known as radial pulse technology, ZWave works by transmitting powerful acoustic pulses into targeted tissues, which then disperse their energy radially. The body responds to the ZWave’s acoustic pulses by increasing metabolic activities related to lymphatic drainage and increased blood circulation. The result is improved tissue elasticity, skin firmness, and the appearance of cellulite, as well as improved results and recovery from CoolSculpting® procedures.
At Dermapure, the ZWave treatment ($150 value) is complimentary after your CoolSculpting® session to ensure you get the best possible results.
How does a CoolSculpting® session feel?
As you can imagine, the CoolSculpting® procedure can be… quite cooling! First, the applicator is placed on the area to be treated and acts as a suction cup to hold it in place during the treatment. At this stage, it is possible to feel some tugging, a slight pinch or tingling, but no pain. Once the Cryolipolysis process has begun, it is normal to feel an intense cold sensation, which usually subsides as the area becomes numb. When the CoolSculpting® applicator is removed, a complimentary ZWave treatment is provided. For a few minutes, mechanical and acoustic pulses are delivered by a handpiece to the treated body area. The sensation of this step is different for everyone; some people are not bothered by it, while others find the sensation slightly uncomfortable during the short period of massage.
When are the results visible?
If the treated fat cells die within 2 to 3 days of treatment, they will take 2 to 4 months to be eliminated naturally by the body; this explains why the results of CoolSculpting® will not be seen immediately. It is estimated that results are generally visible 2 to 3 months after treatment. However, the body will continue to eliminate fat cells for up to 4-6 months after treatment. Depending on the area and amount of fat to be treated, a second treatment may be recommended for optimal results. Adopting healthy lifestyle habits to maintain a stable weight will help maintain the benefits of CoolSculpting® and sustain the results over time.
Before/after a CoolSculpting® treatment
Combine Coolsculpting® to achieve your goals even more precisely
CoolSculpting® technology was developed to destroy fat cells and therefore only targets fat deposits. However, there are different options for treating sagging skin, water retention, loss of muscle tone and cellulite, for example. If your goals go beyond just getting rid of stubborn fat deposits, combining CoolSculpting® with other technologies will help you achieve the results you want.

Combining pulsed magnetic fields with multi-polar radiofrequency waves, this treatment stimulates collagen and tightens skin tissue. This technology is ideal for smoothing and tightening sagging skin and reducing the appearance of cellulite. A few sessions after your CoolSculpting® treatments will create a sheathing effect for an even more harmonious silhouette.
Thermage® uses a combination of unipolar radiofrequency and cooling energy to slow the loss of collagen and elastin and stimulate their natural production. It is the most effective treatment for deep skin laxity and one session following your CoolSculpting® treatments is usually sufficient to achieve excellent results in skin tightening and cellulite improvement (mild to moderate).
