MCSC June 2024 Newsletter

The change of seasons always brings with it concerns about our skin. Whether it’s residual dryness from the winter months without humidity, or break outs due to too much humid weather now, large pores and fine lines that went unnoticed in dimmer lighting, or new brown spots brought on by the sunshine, our skin needs TLC this time of year.

Clinic News

Among the many great options to optimize your complexion, MCSC is delighted to introduce hyaluronic acid skin booster treatment, with Redensity 1. An in-clinic injectable treatment unlike any other, Redensity 1 is often referred to as “internal skin care.” It offers hyaluronic acid along with a combination of nourishing and stimulating growth factors and antioxidants directly into your skin for a “glass like” complexion. The recommended treatment includes three sessions one month apart. Get more moisturized skin, with a smoother flawless look – try Redensity1!

What else have our staff been up to? Dr. Weinberg is a regular participant at interdisciplinary skin cancer rounds, helping solve the questions of best treatment for serious cases of skin cancer like melanoma. He urges everyone to wear their sunscreen regularly this time of year. He says,” If you’re worried about skin irritation with sunscreen, avoid scent, and any sunscreens that also contain Retin A, Oxybenzone or Benzophenone-3.” Susane, our medical aesthetician, is our resident sunscreen expert – drop in or book a consult with her to find out about your best sunscreen options.

Dr. Schiffer will be moderating an upcoming talk on migraine treatment for fellow neurologists. She’s also just performed with Voices Rock Medicine, a choir of female MDs, in their annual end of year concert.  Video should be available soon, so keep your eyes out on our social media!

Update on CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting remains one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in North America. However, it continues to be a somewhat misunderstood and mysterious treatment for many- here’s a quick review of all the facts and new info you’ll need to figure out if CoolSculpting is for you.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

This procedure is a non-invasive way to lose fat through cryolipolysis, which means the killing of fat cells through extreme cold. Because skin and connective tissue have a different freezing point than fat, the device freezes fat without damaging the overlying tissue.

What Areas Can CoolSculpting Treat?

  • Upper and Lower Abdomen
  • Inner and Outer Thighs (e.g. Saddle Bags)
  • Knees
  • Back
  • Banana Roll (Fatty Area Under Buttock)
  • Flanks
  • Arms
  • Upper and Lower Bra Fat
  • Male Chest
  • Submental (Double Chin)

What Is Involved in a CoolSculpting Procedure?

At the first appointment you will be assessed to determine if CoolSculpting is suitable to treat your area of concern. The area to be treated is cleansed and one or two suction applicators will be applied to the area. The procedure takes approximately 30-6 minutes depending on the area. Treatments are repeated at 4 – 8-week intervals.

Does CoolSculpting Work?

The short answer is yes, but it’s important to understand what to expect. Overall, studies have shown a 10-25% fat reduction in treated areas based on a “skin pinch” measurement with calipers or ultrasound measurements of fat thickness. While this may sound like a modest decrease, it translates into a significant reduction in clothing size, and study after study has found a high rate of satisfaction among patients. Over time, results have improved since recommended treatment protocols have been revised. See below for “What’s New in CoolSculpting.”  2-3 treatments may not be sufficient.

Who Is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?

It’s important to remember CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment. Rather it is a nonsurgical body contouring treatment, best for people with a small bulge or area of concern. The best candidates are close to their ideal weight and have taught skin. For larger areas of fat, liposuction may be a better choice, and for patients with loose or hanging skin, procedures like tummy tuck, arm, or thigh lift may be necessary.

What Are the Side Effects of CoolSculpting?

Common side effects can include mild discomfort, swelling, itching, and numbness for a period of time after treatment. Bruising can also occur.

More rare side effects can include asymmetry, irregularity and indentation. It is also possible to develop PAH, paradoxical adipose hyperplasia, where fat in the treated area increases. This is rare and may be treated with liposuction.

What’s New In CoolSculpting?

A new range of applicators of varying sizes has made the procedure more flexible, allowing a greater number of areas to be treated, and allowing the procedure to be better tailored to an individual’s body shape. These have also added considerably to the comfort of the procedure. Also, very significantly, with growing experience clinicians have now developed more effective treatment schedules.  

The general consensus now among treating physicians is that the older recommendation of 2-3 treatment cycles per area is sometimes insufficient. Impressive results can sometimes be achieved with 4, 5, and sometimes 6 or more treatments for some patients and some body areas.

If you have unwanted fat and are wondering if CoolSculpting is right for you, call our Mississauga location at (905) 273-3045 or our Toronto location at (416) 207-9090 or request a consultation online.

      Hi Elaine Just checking in to make sure you obtained an appointment regarding IPL? Just wanted to let you known we don’t usually look after appointment scheduling through the newsletter, so that’s why things might have slipped through the cracks- We will honour the Dec deal for you if you are still interested!

    • Sandy says:

      Hello Carsta Thanks so much for your interest in Chin Liposuction at our clinic. The cost is typically $2250, though it can vary somewhat if someone has either a very small or very large amount of fat. Belkyra is also an option for treatment of fat under the chin. If you are interested in coming on for a consultation to discuss options and assess whether liposuction is the right choice for you, please contact us at 905-273-3045. We do not schedule appointments through the newsletter reply area

      Hello G Thanks for your interest in injections at our clinic.
      Unfortunately we will not be able to contact you to update you about specials based on a reply to the newsletter alone. We do not have a mechanism to store your information via this field. If you sign up to receive our newsletters, you will receive them monthly, along with our specials! Hope that helps!

  • Nellie says:

    About your promotion above….how can the three IPL treatments be used by Feb 28 if they must be spaced apart at least 2 weeks to a month? Do you mean the first of 3 must be used by Feb 28?

    • Sandy, patient coordinator says:

      Hello Nellie Thanks for your question regarding IPL. Treatments every two weeks would allow 3 treatments over this time period. Having said that, we are usually somewhat flexible about scheduling for our specials, so if there was a good reason to stretch out the treatment dates, we try to accommodate. Due to Holiday closures, and a lot of belated interest in the IPL special, we are extending this promotion throughout January. If you are interested in IPL, by all means book a consultation appointment by calling us at 905-273-3045, or you can contact me at Please be aware we can’t schedule appointments through this newsletter reply field. Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
