Coolsculpting is a non-invasive procedure that can help you to remove unwanted or excess body fat.
This is a fat reduction cosmetic procedure that uses technology to “freeze” the fat and make it dissolve.
Does this procedure really work?
A lot of people wonder if Coolsculpting really works or if it is a gimmick. It is natural to be skeptical because in the past we have all seen fat reduction systems come and go because they really did not work.
The procedure used during this fat reduction process is called Cryolipolysis. This is actually a highly effective method of reducing fat in localized areas of the body.
Most of the people who have this done see a 20% to 80% reduction of fat cells in the targeted areas of their body.

What are the Cons of having this procedure done?
There are drawbacks to every weight loss or fat reduction program. The main drawbacks of this method are limitations on who is not eligible to have it performed on them.
The number one drawback is you will need more than one session before you see the optimal results. Your sessions cannot be scheduled closely together. You will have to wait between six and eight weeks before you get a subsequent session.
It can take up to six months after the sculpting is done before you see the final results. It takes some time for the damaged fat cells to be eradicated and flushed out of the body.

How much does Coolsculpting cost in Canada?
The cost of this fat removal system is far less than the cost of any other successful fat removal process.
On average, the cost to have this done in Canada will be somewhere between $750 and $4000. That is a pretty wide range but there are different things that can raise the price of the procedure.
This process can be performed on different parts of the body. Smaller body parts like the upper arms are less expensive than having a larger area like the stomach or thighs worked on.
If you want to have the fat from your upper arms removed you will most likely pay about $750 per session. The number of sessions you need will depend on the amount of fat and how quickly your fat responds.
Arm sessions will take about 35 minutes and most people see the results they desire with just one session.

How is this done?
Applicators that adhere to the targeted area using suction are placed on the body. The equipment is then turned on and for about 35 minutes the process is applied.
Some people describe mild tingling sensations during the cycle of treatment.
A lot of the practitioners who do this will offer package discounts. If you have more than one area you wish to address, or if you want to have more than one session on the same area, many providers will offer discounts.
Sometimes the discounts can be very lucrative. If you do have more than one area of concern it is recommended that you talk to the provider before you start scheduling so they can recommend what order to have the procedures done it and can offer you discounts and savings packages.
Most insurances will not cover elective cosmetic procedures like this. You can always ask your insurance provider, but for the most part, they will not agree to pay for this.
Payment Plan Options
Many of the providers of this kind of cosmetic procedure work with their clients by setting up payment plans. The payment plans will allow you to make a small monthly payment over a period of time rather than having to cover the entire procedure at the first appointment.
Coolsculpting costs in Canada are more affordable than almost any other cosmetic procedure. They are safe, and more than 80% of the people who have done this say they would recommend the procedures to their friends and family.
