By Freezing Away Stubborn Fat With CoolSculpting® You Can
Rediscover Your True Look at DermMedica
Most of us have to deal with areas of stubborn fat that we just can’t get rid of no matter what we do. It keeps us from feeling our best and feeling confident in ourselves – how rude! Thankfully, we now have CoolSculpting, a revolutionary new technology that can eliminate fat permanently by freezing it.
CoolSculpting® is a procedure that requires no downtime and that permanently zaps fat without any fuss or muss on your tummy, love handles, flanks, back, thighs, arms and more. As the first Kelowna CoolSculpting provider in 2011, we are uniquely qualified to perform treatments while you sit back, relax and wait for your fat to disappear for good.
Men and women seeking a safe and effective fat removal treatment plan in Kelowna will enjoy the following benefits:
- Approved by the FDA and Health Canada
- Targets particular areas of fat that can’t be removed with diet or exercise
- No incisions needed
- No need for general anesthesia
- No needles
- No downtime: after the procedure, you can carry on with your everyday life
- Avoid the risks and complications associated with liposuction, Zerona and Velashape
Whole Body Treatment
CoolSculpting’s fat freezing technology can be used to treat most areas on the body, including the abdomen, belly, love handles, muffin tops, back fat, inner & outer thighs, banana rolls and excess male chest fat (gynecomastia).
CoolSculpting is popular with men, as well as women. Males often prefer to use this treatment to target the chest, back of arms and chin.
Double chins and the area under the chin is best targeted by our Belkyra treatment.
CoolSculpting Treatment in Kelowna
The applicator is placed on the area with unwanted fat. When the treatment begins, skin and fat are gently, but firmly, pulled closer to the chill plates which remove heat from the tissue to just above zero degrees Celsius. The targeted area of your body is then kept at this temperature for about half an hour.
For many patients at our Kelowna clinic, CoolSculpting results in natural and noticeable fat reduction in treated areas in two to four months. This is without the risks and recovery time of more invasive treatments.
CoolSculpting is not suited to those looking to lose weight or with obesity. It is for those looking for a body-shaping procedure that can get them the smooth and slim body surfaces they’ve always wanted. Liposuction often results in lumpy or uneven fat removal, whereas CoolSculpting achieves even results. CoolSculpting gives the treated area a smooth, lean and natural look. Our patients have been very satisfied with their results.
CoolSculpting Recovery Time
Since there is no cutting, injections, or anesthesia, patients can return to their everyday life after their appointment. They don’t have to plan for downtime to recover. Redness, numbness or bruising in the treated area is common.
With our CoolSculpting treatment plans, you will generally see between 20 and 25 percent of fat cells disappear over the next few months. This relies on a natural mechanism within the body. If the patient has the same diet and exercise as before the procedure, the results should be long-lasting.
What happens to the fat? The fat will die off and be removed by a natural process in your body, making it a safe and non-invasive fat control method. Each treatment can remove as much as 25 percent of the fat layer.
CoolSculpting Certified Practice
Cryolipolysis is the technical name for the CoolSculpting treatment, and DermMedica is a certified practice. We were the first clinic in the BC Interior to receive this distinction. DermMedica’s staff receive extensive training and quality monitoring from the creators of this procedure. This certification reflects a commitment to safety and patient satisfaction.
We have been performing CoolSculpting since 2011, making DermMedica the most experienced clinic in the Okanagan area for this body shaping procedure.

"I had excellent results with a Coolsculpting operation at this clinic. Dr. Crippen took me through everything I wanted to know before we started, and I was still surprised at how easy it was. It took a little longer than I would have liked for the results to kick in, but I didn’t change anything and I lost weight." – Ami Hamann
