We Answered the Web’s Most-Searched CoolSculpting® Questions

BOTOX® Cosmetic

If you are one of the many people who have heard about the benefits of CoolSculpting here in Edmonton, you probably have a few questions. You are certainly not alone: Thousands of people search online for more info about CoolSculpting every day.

In this blog post, we’ll answer a few of the most-searched questions to clear up any confusion and help you learn more about one of the most popular body contouring treatments in the world.

Will CoolSculpting help me lose weight?

CoolSculpting is a cosmetic body contouring treatment, not a weight-loss procedure. It’s designed to reduce pockets of fat that prove difficult to slim down even with diet and exercise.

In clinical studies, CoolSculpting reduced fat by as much as 25% with just a single treatment. These results are most effective for people who are already dedicated to living healthy lifestyles and want to enhance their contours with targeted sculpting.

How much are CoolSculpting treatments?

The cost of CoolSculpting varies depending on your goals, so it’s difficult to quote a price without a consultation. Once we assess your concerns and determine which areas to treat and how many sessions you may need, we will provide a personalized price estimate.

Are CoolSculpting results immediate?

No, CoolSculpting results are not immediate. Results appear gradually over the course of 2 to 3 months. Once those fat cells are gone, however, you’ll enjoy long-lasting results, barring any major changes in your weight.     View this post on Instagram

Can CoolSculpting be done at home?

While it may seem tempting to try “DIY CoolSculpting,” this treatment is not safe to attempt at home. As you can read about in this related blog post, trying to freeze your own fat at home may lead to frostbite and even permanent tissue damage. It’s important to choose a provider with the credentials and experience necessary to perform CoolSculpting treatments safely.

Which is better: CoolSculpting or liposuction?

Neither option is definitively “better”; it’s more about which approach is right for you. CoolSculpting is ideal for people looking to treat small, localized pockets of fat while avoiding surgery. On the other hand, liposuction is better for treating multiple areas or removing larger amounts of fat, but it does require some recovery time.

The best way to determine the right treatment for you is to schedule a consultation with one of our plastic surgeons at Macleod Trail Plastic Surgery. After assessing your concerns and talking over your goals, your surgeon will make a personalized recommendation to ensure you see your best results and have the best experience possible.

Does CoolSculpting work on a double chin?

Yes, the CoolMini™ applicator is designed to fit around small areas such as a double chin. Reducing this fat helps sculpt a sharper, more defined jawline. We offer this applicator as well as a full range of others designed to treat areas such as the outer thighs.
