Frequently Asked Questions About CoolSculpting®

If you have ever wanted to try CoolSculpting®, the innovative non-surgical technology that can reduce pockets of fatty tissue, this information might be helpful in making your decision. Our skilled medical professionals answer some frequently asked questions (FAQs) about this procedure:

After CoolSculpting® will my fat return?
CoolSculpting® is designed to provide long-lasting fat cell reduction without the need for retreatment. At adolescence, we have all of the fat cells we will get. Our bodies do not produce more fat cells as we age unless we become obese and our fat cells divide. With a healthy diet and regular exercise, the results of CoolSculpting® can be enjoyed for years to come.

How long does the CoolSculpting® procedure typically last, and how many treatments will I need?
Everyone’s needs and goals are unique. Depending on your treatment plan, CoolSculpting® can last anywhere from two to six hours, on average. CoolMini™, on the other hand, usually can be completed in about 45 minutes. Your procedure can often be broken up into several sessions to make your experience more convenient. It’s important to note, CoolSculpting® can reduce fatty tissue in the treated area by up to 20-25 per cent, so repeat treatments can help you to achieve more comprehensive fat reduction. As mentioned above, maintaining a nutritious diet and fitness program will help you preserve the results for years.

How much does CoolSculpting® cost?
The cost of CoolSculpting® is different for everyone. It really depends on the results of your personal assessment and the best applicator for your treatment. Prices start from $750.00 for small applicators to $1500.00 for the large applicator. A price reduction can be achieved for those clients who have multiple applications.

How Can I Enhance My Lips Without Surgery?

Beautiful Lips

Full lips can compliment and soften your face, bringing out your most sensual and sultry features.

Very few people are born with full, symmetrical lips. As we age, our upper lips are prone to wrinkling, partly due to accumulated sun exposure, genetics, smoking, and the natural aging process.

Dr. Shehla Ebrahim may be able to give you a beautiful set of sensual lips with one quick and easy visit.  Lip enhancement is one of the most frequently requested cosmetic procedures. Many patients enjoy great results with injectable fillers that are soft, pliable, and have a natural look and feel.

These products help enhance the natural silhouette of your lips, including the “cupid’s bow” area of your central upper lip. They can also fill in the vertical lines and droopy corners of the mouth.

A single procedure or a combination technique may be used to meet your goals and give your lips the best look.

We invite you to contact us for a complimentary consultation with our highly skilled and trained physician, Dr. Ebrahim, to determine the best procedure for you.

What kind of preparation is necessary?

Topical anaesthetic may be applied one hour prior to treatment.

FAQs about the Pelleve System

Pelleve B & AIf common signs of aging are getting you down, the Pellevé System may be able to help. This non-surgical rejuvenating treatment can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, spider veins, and more. Our Pellevé specialists can help you determine if this technique is right for you during your initial free consultation.

What does Pellevé do?

Pellevé precisely delivers energy to the dermal tissues using advanced radiofrequency (RF) technology, which is designed to induce collagen contraction without damaging the epidermis. The result is tightening of the skin via soft-tissue coagulation.

What does it treat?

The Pellevé System delivers constant, gradual radiofrequency energy deep into the skin, causing heat to build up where the skin and fat layer meet. The increasing heat modifies the collagen bundles deep in the skin. The result: tighter, younger-looking skin.

How often will I need treatment?

The number of treatments is based upon age. Typically, one treatment per decade relative to the patient’s age will be recommended, at a frequency of four-to-six weeks apart.

Contact us to schedule your complimentary consultation with our Pellevé specialist.

Lose Stubborn Fat With CoolSculpting™

Is CoolSculpting™ an option for you?

According to RealSelf, a popular review website that connects doctors with patients, 70% of people voted that CoolSculpting™ was worth it! That makes a total of 1,538 people who took the time to write about their CoolSculpting™ experience.

We have personal reviews by two of our Team Members who had a CoolSculpting™ treatment.

Team Member # 1

“In my experience CoolSculpting is truly less invasive than liposuction.”

“Before pregnancy, when I was younger, I did have Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction, and that was truly invasive with 3 weeks downtime, compression garments, swelling, and pain…”

“After children I tried to maintain a healthy lifestyle with a good, balanced diet and exercise, but I still had this pocket of fat in my lower stomach. I knew I didn’t need a tummy tuck as I didn’t have lose skin, just fat pockets…”

“I decided to try CoolSculpting™. With this new technology it was less invasive with less downtime. I was more than pleased…. not just about the results but also how painless the procedure really was.”

“Uncomfortable at times… yes …but not painful!”

“After the procedure, the massage part was a little uncomfortable, but I was back to normal activities immediately after the procedure.”

“One week post procedure, it felt like a mild sunburn on my stomach, and I knew it was the nerve endings coming back…”

“I saw the results as soon as 5 weeks after. I would definitely do it again as I know it works.”

Team Member # 2

“The actual treatment was a breeze, minus the part where it sucks in the fat. It doesn’t hurt; it feels like pulling and pinching of the skin, but not painful. When the applicator came off, I felt completely numb in the treated area. It was about an hour after the treatment that I noticed it was a little tender to the touch.”

“I was one of the 5% of people who experience post-treatment pain. On Day 5, I felt a pain as the nerves started coming back. It was difficult for a few nights and then one night it just stopped.”

“I started noticing results within a week of my treatment and still continue to see results today. There was some post procedure pain, but if definitely would do it again.”

“It really is amazing to think that you can have such great results just from freezing the fat cells.”
