At Silverado Medical & Aesthetic Clinic, we use advanced clinical knowledge and the latest technologies to rejuvenate, refresh, and repair safely. Liposuction, tummy tuck, and breast augmentation are among the top plastic surgery procedures, so there is no denying the demand for body contouring; however, you don’t have to go under the knife to get the shape you’ve always wanted or regain the curves you once had. CoolSculpting fat freezing in Calgary, AB by Dr. Folake Pepple and her team destroys excess fat cells without the side effects, risks of complications, and downtime associated with conventional invasive surgical procedures. It’s also a great alternative if you’ve tried all the crunches and a nutritious diet – and you still have unwanted fat on your abdomen, thighs, hips, and other notoriously stubborn trouble spots.


This revolutionary technique is based on the idea that fat cells don’t react like other cells when they contact cold temperatures. Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital in the late 2000s discovered that fat cells were reduced when exposed to targeted and prolonged yet controlled cooling. The skin and surrounding areas remained untouched for a very precise and effective treatment. This principle of cryolipolysis would later be applied in the development of CoolSculpting by Zeltiq Aesthetics.


CoolSculpting is an option for patients who wouldn’t be good candidates for liposuction or other invasive surgical procedures. No painkillers, anesthetic, or extensive preparation is necessary. It is safe for many individuals with pre-existing conditions, including diabetics. A specialist in body contouring techniques, Dr. Pepple applies an FDA– and Health Canada-cleared device to select areas of the body that resist diet and exercise. Such localized, pinchable fat may develop in the following spots, including:

  • Underneath the chin (double chin)
  • Abdomen
  • Outer and inner thighs
  • Upper and lower flanks
  • Arms
  • Excess breast fat in men

Fat deposits never seem to go away, because their causes can’t be treated with a healthy diet and physical activity alone. It’s estimated that every decade, your metabolism slows by about 5 percent, so time may be to blame. Falling estrogen levels as women enter menopause can also alter how fat is distributed, especially around the waist and tummy.

Certified technician at Silverado Medical Aesthetics isolates the treatment area by using the CoolSculpting device’s built-in suction to draw in the treatment site. Powerful, controlled cooling is then delivered precisely to the treatment area. The CoolSculpting applicator is designed with sensors that ensure cooling is uniform, consistent and safe throughout the treatment.

Treatment is so worry-free that many of our patients enjoy reading or relaxing during the appointment.


CoolSculpting freezes fat cells. Over time, these damaged cells are eliminated as part of a natural and safe metabolic process. As this process occurs, your body will look increasingly sculpted. You may opt for additional treatments should you want further fat reduction.

Once fat cells that are eliminated from your body, they can’t re-develop in the treated site. The same can’t be said of fat cells that merely shrink with diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. Patients should be at or near their ideal weight. Those who have more extensive weight loss needs or extensive skin laxity, may be great candidates for other procedures at Silverado Medical & Aesthetic Clinic.

Generally, our patients love that they can get results in the weeks or months following treatment – sometimes in a single session – and that they can get back to their regular activities without interruption. The most commonly reported sensation during treatment is a slight pressure or tugging and an intense feeling of cold. This passes quickly. After treatment, side effects are similar to many other noninvasive cosmetic procedures. They may include numbness, bruising, swelling, redness, and increased sensitivity.
