Have you been hiding in baggy sweaters all winter? Maybe, despite the hours you’ve spent in the gym, you’re still not ready to slide into those skinny jeans?

The delay of spring this year has made for some great spring skiing but for those of us in the city, the promise of some warmer weather and skimpier clothes is long overdue. Have you been hiding in baggy sweaters all winter? Maybe, despite the hours you’ve spent in the gym, you’re still not ready to slide into those skinny jeans? Despite our best efforts at healthy diet and exercise, many of us just can’t get rid of those problem areas. Most of us have them – muffin tops, saddlebags, bat wings or banana rolls. Those stubborn little pockets of fat that make shorts a little tough to do up and cling to slinky summer tops in all the wrong places, like our flanks. If you love being a mom but would like to ditch the “mom” jeans this year, why not consider treating yourself to CoolSculpting® this Mother’s Day? It’s a scientifically-proven way to look hot, by getting cool, and Skinpossible offers this popular and effective treatment!
CoolSculpting is an FDA and Health Canada-approved method that uses controlled cooling to eliminate fat cells, which freeze at a higher temperature than other cells making the procedure safe for nerves, skin, and collagen. The cells are then cleared from your body’s natural physiological processes.
Treatment results appear gradually over a period of weeks, with full results visible in two to three months. CoolSculpting isn’t a weight loss program, it’s targeted contouring that delivers noticeable results, typically around 25% on the first treatment, with some patients choosing additional treatments for even greater results.
CoolSculpting has gained a reputation as a relatively painless lunch-time procedure with no downtime. A gel pad and cooling device are positioned to target the area to be treated. Then gentle suction gently draws the tissue into the cooling device.
At Skinpossible, our patients often choose to relax and watch TV or catch up on e-mail during their treatment. Most just feel a slight discomfort from the vacuum and initial cooling, which lasts around five minutes. After the treatment, the treated area is massaged for optimal results, and then you’re up and on your way! There is typically some post-treatment tenderness and sometimes temporary puffiness or bruising, which clears up in a few days.
Skinpossible is one of western Canada’s foremost CoolSculpting providers, having performed over 7,000 treatments, the most of any facility in Alberta in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. Our treatment staff has attended CoolSculpting University. Our experience and track record are important because, as with any cosmetic treatment, CoolSculpting relies on the placement of the device and the aesthetic expertise of the technician for the best and most appealing results.
Our facility has three Coolsculpting units, which allow for treatment of several areas of the body at once, for your convenience and to save you time. We provide a free pre-treatment consult and a post-treatment visit to compare your before and after photos.
Our style of consultation is educational. There is no pressure or obligation. We take the time to explain your options and make sure you have the information you need to make a decision, at no charge. Even the parking is free.
