CoolSculpting has become a widely popular approach for minimizing fat deposits without surgery. There’s no shortage of reasons men and women love CoolSculpting® at our Calgary practice, from its versatility to its lack of downtime after the treatment.
In this blog post, we’ll explore the 5 main reasons so many people choose CoolSculpting to help them reach their body contouring goals.
1. It treats more areas of the body than ever.
An expanded range of specially designed applicators now enables us to effectively treat a number of hard-to-address areas, including the outer thighs, double chin, and upper arms. Our options include:
- CoolAdvantage™ for the abdomen, flanks, inner thighs, back of thighs, and lower back.
- CoolAdvantage Petite™ for the upper arms, inner thighs and flanks, and the back of thighs for more petite bodies.
- CoolAdvantage™ PLUS for reducing bulk in larger treatment areas.
- CoolMini™ for the double chin, bra fat, back fat, and thighs.
- CoolSmooth PRO™ for the outer thighs.
2. It’s quick and easy to work into your routine.
Treatments typically only take about an hour, and you’ll likely only need 1 to 3 sessions to see the best results. Because many people often need 2 areas treated (such as both hips or both arms) we now feature DualSculpting, which allows us to use 2 machines at the same time. You can essentially get double the results without adding any treatment time.
3. It doesn’t require any downtime.
Once your CoolSculpting treatment is complete, you can return to work or your daily activities right away. You may experience some temporary redness or swelling in the treated areas for a few hours, but this typically doesn’t stop patients from resuming their usual routines.
4. It’s nonsurgical.
This means no anesthesia, incisions, or needles. The device provides fat reduction results without penetrating the skin and safely destroys fat cells without harming the surrounding tissues. These cells are then naturally eliminated by the body during the next couple of months, after which you’ll see the optimal results.
5. It provides a targeted solution.
CoolSculpting allows you to spot-treat certain areas, which you can’t do through exercise alone. If you’ve been working hard at the gym but are struggling to reduce stubborn pockets of fat, CoolSculpting can help. Many people find the treatment to be a fitness motivator since it allows them to break through plateaus and finally see the results they have been working towards.
Although CoolSculpting is a great option for many people, it’s not the best approach for everyone. If you have more expansive or significant fat deposits you want to reduce, you may be better off opting for liposuction.
The best way to determine which body contouring option is best for you is to consult with a Royal College-certified plastic surgeon, who will make recommendations based on your unique concerns and goals.
