I have had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Crippen for awhile now, he does botox injections for me every 3 months. I was very nervous at first, but the staff and Dr. Crippen made me feel at ease right away. He is a wonderful Doctor, very caring and does a fantastic job. I highly recommend Dr. Crippen. Staff is also excellent!!! Thank you.

Dr. Crippen is an absolute maser with Botox. I’ve had little filler implants done around my face, my ears and lips so far, and each operation came out looking exactly the way I had hoped. Not too puffy, not too thin.

This place does the best work of all the skincare clinics I’ve tried in the Vancouver area. I go back periodically for new botox and juvederm injections, and they always make it look brand new and just right every single time. This place has earned my business.

I was deeply impressed with the work of this clinic. We visited for my teenage daughter after over-the-counter medications had failed her. The acne removal treatment recommended and performed by Doctor Crippen was incredibly effective. We’ve been back for a couple more treatments over the years, and they are all as effective. I wanted to note in particular that he and the staff had a wonderful manner while administering treatment. My daughter typically hates clinical environments but she always felt very comfortable here.

This is the only place that I’ve gone for age spots since it opened. I loved how easily I could schedule at short notice, and the commitment the staff showed to making sure that I understood everything I wanted to know. I was treated very well here.

I loved how little time it took to set up the chemical peel treatment and to get it. Your clinic made the day very convenient for me, especially since two other clinics had already told me that they couldn’t fit me in that. Your chemical peel was also one of the most effective that I’ve ever had. I’m extremely satisfied.

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.

My coolsculpting treatment was first performed at this clinic, at the Kelowna location, which might be their only one. I’ve never had coolsculpting performed anywhere else, so I can’t judge the quality compared to other clinics, but it was really effective. The procedure was completely painless and didn’t even feel uncomfortable. The easiest weight I have ever lost.

Dr Crippen performed the Juvederm treatment in a highly professional, caring and pleasant manner. I found the entire experience to be a comfortable one and despite having some initial reservations/nervousness, both he and his extremely competent staff, made me feel totally at ease and reassured. I cannot speak highly enough of the entire experience of being treated by Dr Crippen and his staff.

I chose DermMedica hoping they would be able to help me with my lips. Dr. Crippen recommended a Juvederm filler, and I’m thrilled with both how easy it was and how great it looks. I was particularly pleased with the end result of the lip filler because I’ve had friends with that swollen look, and I did not want any part of that.
CoolTone Body Contouring Treatments in Kelowna Coming in Winter 2020!
Choose CoolTone body contouring treatments to firm up your skin and strengthen your muscles
Tired of your diet and exercise producing results in the wrong spots? Are you not able to build the shape and tone you desire? Do you wish to achieve the most slim and defined shape you can get ahead of a big occasion, like a wedding? With the CoolTone muscle stimulation device, our clinic in Kelowna can help you get the results you want.
Our clinic was among the first in the area to be able to perform treatments using the new CoolTone technology, from the same company that made the CoolSculpting fat removal treatment.
This new device makes your skin look more firm and defined by strengthening the muscles beneath it. It specifically targets your abdomen, buttocks or thighs to help you achieve the shape and tone you desire in those key areas.
Contact us today to book your appointment, or watch the video below to learn more.
How Does CoolTone Work?
The CoolTone skin device uses MMS technology, which stands for “magnetic muscle stimulation”. The device is applied to the targeted area on your body — either your abs, buttocks or thigh — and delivers high frequently electromagnetic waves at cold temperatures to your muscles.
In response to the cold temperature, your muscles in the area contracts and strengthens the muscle fibers in a way that normal exercises cannot. The treatment is a safe and painless means to improve the conditioning of the muscles that are affected by the treatment. The end result is you get improved tone and definition to the muscles and skin, which is perfect for people who want to get results that their diet and exercise can’t quite achieve.
Effects of the CoolTone Procedure
The treatment does not target or affect fat, like CoolSculpting does. Instead, it targets your muscles. As a result of conditioning the muscles in your core region, you will feel stronger. You will notice improved body contouring lines in the targeted area: your stomach, thighs and buttocks will look more toned and firm.
Treatments are not meant to be a substitute for regular exercise and will not eliminate fat, but it will help your core region look more defined and smooth thanks to the improved muscle toning.
The device is noninvasive, and does not require any cutting or drugs. Short-term, mild side effects may include
- Muscular pain
- Temporary muscle spasm
- Temporary joint or tendon pain
- Local erythema or skin redness
Contact us today if you have any questions about how to control these side effects, or if you want to book a body contouring appointment at our Kelowna clinic!
Who Is a Good Candidate for the Treatment?
Anyone who wants to improve the conditioning of their muscles in their core area is a good candidate for the treatment. However, due to the nature of the device there are some people with specific health issues who should not receive the treatment:
- Patients with cardiac pacemakers, cochlear implants, intrathecal pumps, implanted defibrillators or neurostimulators, or drug pumps
- Patients whose skin in the abdominal, buttock or thigh regions lacks normal sensation
- Patients with fever, a malignant tumor, hemorrhagic conditions, epilepsy, recent surgical procedure application in the area of growth plate, pulmonary insufficiency, pregnancy, sensitivity or allergy to latex.
- Patients who are in or near to their menstruation period
In addition, the treatment should be used with caution for patients with Grave’s disease, active bleeding disorder, or any seizure disorder.
Women who are close to their menstruation period may find that receiving the treatment can cause it to arrive sooner, as well as making cramping more intense. We advise patients to avoid this treatment if you are in that stage of your menstruation cycle.
Quick Answers About CoolTone
It does not freeze fat, rather it stimulates muscle activity which in turn tones and strengthens muscle fibers.
We can target stomach muscles, leg and buttock muscles with this device.
Each patient requires a formal assessment to see if they are good candidates. As with coolsculpting, not everyone is a good candidate for treatment.
CoolTone takes about one hour per treatment session.
There is no downtime or recovery time after treatment, you may resume your normal activities.
Results are not permanent as muscles will weaken over time naturally so maintenance sessions are highly recommended to maintain results.
Cooltone is not approved to treat any skin conditions.
There are always risks to treatments and this will be discussed during your assessment and outlined on your consent form. Common adverse events are tenderness in the muscles after treatment(you WANT this to happen) and muscle fatigue immediately after treatment.
