Unwanted Fat

Unwanted Fat

Are you struggling to fit into your favourite clothes? Unwanted fat, wherever they may be located, are a frustrating issue for many of us. It’s incredibly disheartening to dislike what you see when you look in the mirror, and this feeling is only heightened if you’re actually trying to slim down but not seeing results.

There’s really nothing worse than following a healthy diet and working hard to stay active, and then still feeling like your clothes are too tight.


The truth is, there are sometimes pockets of unwanted fat that cling to the body, regardless of diet and exercise. This stubborn fat is often located around the midsection, the flanks or the thighs. Additionally, as we get older it can get even harder to get rid of these trouble areas.

Thankfully, there is no need to keep living with unwanted fat. LSG, we’ve helped countless patients effectively address resistant pockets of fat with our innovative CoolSculpting procedures.

If you are tired of feeling self-conscious about excess fat, we can help.

Frequently asked questions

“Stubborn fat” is called that for good reason: it’s nearly impossible to get rid of through diet and exercise. And almost everyone has it. This is why we offer CoolSculpting at Laser Spa Group. After your treatment, you’ll notice those persistent fat bulges begin to shrink and disappear, leaving you with a more sculpted body. It’s good to note that CoolSculpting isn’t a weight loss procedure, and although you may not see a difference on the scales, your clothes will fit better and you’ll look slimmer.

CoolSculpting is a very affordable procedure, as there’s no anesthesia, surgery, or overnight stay in the hospital, which reduces the cost compared to liposuction. The average cost of CoolSculpting ranges from $1,000 to $4,000, with an average cost of $2,000. If you intend to have multiple areas treated, you should expect to pay between $2,000 and $4,000.

The specific cost of CoolSculpting will be based on:

•    A consultation of one’s own goals for the procedure
•    What location(s) will be targeted
•    How many treatments will be required for the desired outcome

How CoolSculpting works

In 2005, the CoolSculpting process (cryolipolysis) was discovered and developed by two doctors working with Harvard Medical School. In cryolipolysis, fat cells are frozen. Once the fat cells are crystallized, the body will gradually process them as waste over the next few weeks. The result is a more toned, attractive body contour. Only the fat cells are frozen, so you don’t have to worry about surgery, scars, or downtime.

Unlike with other methods of body-contouring, CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive and requires absolutely no surgery. It’s a truly wonderful advancement in the field of aesthetics! It’s also a more advanced system compared to previous cooling devices that required lengthy treatments and painful massages afterward.

When patients come in to receive CoolSculpting the treatment is complete after just 35 minutes per small applicator, which means they can easily get back to work or to whatever they need to do. Plus, this means that no one needs to know about the treatments — patients literally have zero signs of having the treatment done. In the months that follow a CoolSculpting treatment, they will notice their body naturally slim down in the targeted areas.

CoolSculpting treatment details

CoolSculpting is such a convenient procedure that you will be able to drive yourself home afterward. There’s no anesthesia, needles, or lasers.

The treatment begins with a gel pad being placed onto your skin. Panel applicators will then distribute controlled vacuum pressure and cold to the treatment area. CoolSculpting isn’t painful, but it can be uncomfortable for some because of the cold temperatures. The area(s) will be very cold, and may possibly begin to tingle or go numb. In addition, the vacuum pressure may cause you to feel a pinching or tugging sensation. The majority of patients find the treatment very tolerable, and you will probably be comfortable enough to read, check your email, or even nap as the panels do their work. Use the time to do whatever feels right to you. Once the freezing part of the treatment is complete, the area will be massaged for a couple of minutes to loosen the frozen fat cells.

The length of treatment time will be determined by how many (and which) parts are being treated, but each area of the body treated typically takes approximately 35 minutes.

The number of treatments you’ll need will be determined by your customized treatment plan. Many patients only need one session, while others require more. In your initial consultation with our aesthetic specialist, she will determine which areas need treatment and the number of visits your treatment will require to get the best results.

CoolSculpting applicator upgrades

With our new upgraded applicators, CoolSculpting treatments are even more comfortable and effective. Treatments take less time (35 minutes; almost half the regular time of a CoolSculpting appointment), and more tissue can be treated. There is greater comfort, better results, and a larger cooling area thanks to the new cup design and colder temperatures.

We also offer CoolAdvantage Petite, perfect for persistent upper arm fat (“bat wings”). Arm fat is the third most frustrating area on the body to lose weight, which is exactly why the CoolAdvantage Petite applicator was designed. This is one of the only non-invasive fat removal technology approved by the FDA to treat upper arms.


Coolsculpting treatments require very little to no recovery or downtime. While patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, sensitivity, redness, or soreness in the treated area, they are usually able to resume their regular activities. We recommend staying well hydrated and giving the treated area a chance to “breathe” in order to speed recovery time. This means no leggings for tight clothing for a few days.


Early results will be visible within 2-3 weeks of treatment, with continual improvements seen gradually over the next 8-12 weeks. At that point, some 90% of targeted fat cells will be gone. Exercise (even if it’s light) and a healthy diet will speed up your results, and these results will essentially last forever if you take good care of your body.

The fat cells that were destroyed will never return; however, if you end up gaining weight, the fat cells do remain in the treated area(s) can become larger, thereby compromising some of the results that CoolSculpting achieved. This is why it’s important to maintain a healthy, stable weight. Nothing lasts forever unless you maintain it!

Methods we use to treat Unwanted Fat

CoolSculpting induces a significant, noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges that are resistant to diet and exercise. Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Patients often spend the procedure time reading, working on their laptops and phones, or simply relaxing. It’s safe, FDA-cleared and effective. CoolSculpting works by a process known as cryolipolysis. The targeted area is placed between two panels that freeze the fat cells. The frozen and dead cells are then excreted naturally by and through the body – over the next several weeks.
If you have stubborn fat that won’t respond to your diet and exercise regimen – and you’re close to your ideal weight – you may be a good candidate for lipolysis treatments. Lipolysis is a body contouring, fat spot removal procedure, and many people use this treatment to get rid of fat from their double chin, chest, back, knees, love handles, tummy, or ankles.
We offer Belkyra in the most innovative way to permanently remove submental fat. Its active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When used to treat submental fat, Belkyra destroys fat cells, creating a smoother and more beautifully contoured profile. The results are permanent. Did you know? Belkyra can also be used in other areas such as bra fat, and banana rolls! At times, when we try on clothes, we notice lumps and rolls of fat showing through. This is more commonly noticed right below the bra line, and around the waist. These extra pockets of fat make us look out of shape and can certainly cause us to lose confidence in our appearance.
