Stubborn Fat Treatments in Vancouver

Stubborn fat is something that is both very personal and very specific to individual body goals.

At Skin Technique, we have two specific body contouring treatments to help with stubborn or unwanted fat. These two treatments are Emsculpt and Coolsculpting®, both designed to help you reach ultimate body confidence.

What is Stubborn Fat?

Body fat is essential for life. It insulates our bodies, stores energy, and protects our organs. However, not all body fat is created equal. There are different types of fat, and some are more stubborn than others. Subcutaneous fat is the type of fat that lies just under the skin. It’s the stuff that gives us cellulite and jiggly arms. This type of fat is relatively easy to lose through diet and exercise.

On the other hand, visceral fat is much more difficult to get rid of. This type of fat surrounds the internal organs and is associated with an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions.

So what exactly is stubborn fat? It’s a type of visceral fat that is particularly resistant to diet and exercise. Even if you eat a healthy diet and get regular exercise, you may still struggle to lose stubborn fat. Fortunately, there are treatments available that can help you finally achieve your desired results at Skin Technique.

What Causes Stubborn Fat?

Stubborn fat is a type of body fat resistant to diet and exercise. While there is no definitive answer to what causes stubborn fat, there are several theories. One theory suggests that hormonal imbalances cause stubborn fat. Another theory suggests that toxins in the body cause it.

Regardless of the cause, stubborn fat can be frustrating to deal with. The good news is that several treatments are available that can help improve the appearance of stubborn fat. These treatments include CoolSculpting® and radiofrequency ablation. There is no reason to give up on your quest for a better-looking body with so many options available.

Stubborn Fat Treatments


CoolSculpting® technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen) and then die — and once they’re gone, they’re gone for good! With Coolsculpting®, you can treat a variety of problem areas, including:

  • Stomach
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Calves
  • Biceps
  • Flanks
  • Banana roll
  • Double Chin

EMSCULPT is a technology that burns fat while building muscle by delivering the equivalent of 20,000 sit-ups or squats in 30 minutes by stimulating contractions in areas such as the abdomen and buttocks region of the body.

Double Chin Treatment

To treat a double chin, we can use a medical fat-dissolving substance to dissolve unwanted fat. Learn more about our Double Chin treatment.

Stubborn Fat FAQ

How long does it take to remove stubborn fat?

While there’s no magic number when it comes to how long it takes to remove stubborn fat, there are a few things you can do to help speed up the process. First, make sure you eat a healthy diet and get enough exercise. Fat loss occurs when you create a calorie deficit, so it’s essential to make sure you’re not overeating. Exercise helps burn calories and boost your metabolism, which can help with fat loss. These steps, coupled with procedures like those performed at Skin Technique, can make a world of difference.

Why can’t I lose my stubborn fat?

Stubborn fat can be difficult to get rid of, no matter how many diets or exercise programs you try. If you’re looking for a more permanent solution, several non-invasive procedures can help. Radiofrequency and cryolipolysis are two of the most popular options. Radiofrequency uses heat to break down fat cells, while cryolipolysis freezes them so the body can eliminate them.

Both procedures are generally quick and easy, with most sessions lasting less than an hour. And best of all, they don’t require any downtime, so you can get right back to your normal activities afterward. While results vary from person to person, most people see a noticeable improvement after just one treatment.

What is the most stubborn fat to lose?

Many people struggle with weight loss, and various factors contribute to this. One of the most stubborn areas of fat to lose is abdominal fat. This type of fat is known as visceral fat, and it surrounds the organs in the abdomen. Visceral fat is considered more dangerous than other types of fat because it is associated with an increased risk of heart disease and other chronic conditions.

While there are no guarantees for weight loss, there are certain lifestyle changes that can help reduce visceral fat. These include eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and reducing stress levels. Making even small changes in these areas can greatly impact overall health.
