Everything you need to know about CoolSculpting cryolipolysis: effectiveness, safety, and results

CoolSculpting is a cryolipolysis technique (destruction of fat through cold) that helps reduce stubborn fat deposits on the body non-invasively. This method is becoming increasingly popular in Montreal, particularly in the Village neighborhood. In this article, we will tell you everything about cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting, from its effectiveness to its safety and the expected results.

How works Cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment method that uses cryolipolysis to eliminate fat cells. Fat cells, also known as adipocytes, are the cells that store fat in our body. The number of fat cells never changes, as it is predetermined at birth; the body does not produce or eliminate them. When we gain weight, these cells expand to store extra fat. Conversely, when we lose weight, these cells shrink by releasing stored fat.

CoolSculpting targets these fat cells using controlled cooling technology. The treatment selectively cools adipocytes to specific temperatures, causing their crystallization and destruction. The damaged fat cells are then naturally eliminated by the body over time (within 3 months following the treatment), reducing the fat volume in the targeted area.

It is important to note that CoolSculpting does not destroy all fat cells in a given area, but only a portion of them. This means that it is still possible to gain weight in the treated area if an unhealthy diet and lack of exercise are maintained. However, the treatment can help to significantly reduce the fat volume in the targeted area and improve the overall physical appearance

Effectiveness of cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting

Studies have shown that cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting is effective in reducing fat in the selected treatment areas. Patients can expect a reduction of up to 27% of the treated fat, after a single session, in the targeted area with long-term, even lifelong, maintenance of results. It is important to note that cryolipolysis is not a weight loss method, but rather a method for eliminating stubborn fat that resists physical exercise and a healthy diet.

Safety of Cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting

Cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting is a non-invasive and safe procedure. The most common side effects are mild pain, a tugging sensation, and skin redness in the treated area, which usually disappear quickly after the procedure. In very rare cases, numbness, bruising, or swelling may also occur.

Results of Cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting

The results of cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting are usually visible starting from 3 weeks after the treatment, but optimal results are typically achieved after about 2 to 3 months. The results are considered permanent, as the destroyed fat cells cannot regenerate.


Cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting is a non-invasive technique that helps reduce stubborn fat deposits on the body. Studies have shown its effectiveness and safety, and the results are considered permanent. If you are considering cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting, make sure to choose a qualified, experienced, and certified clinic to ensure safety and the best possible results. If you live in Montreal's Village neighborhood or nearby, Dermagyms clinic offers this treatment under medical supervision.

It is also important to note that cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting should not be considered an alternative to a healthy lifestyle. To maintain long-term results, it is important to continue eating healthily and exercising regularly.

In conclusion, if you are looking to achieve a slimmer and more toned body, cryolipolysis with CoolSculpting can be a very interesting option to consider. With lasting results and proven safety, this method is becoming increasingly popular among patients seeking to improve their physical appearance.
