5 Benefits of CoolSculpting® Treatment

The biggest endorsement for any treatment always comes from a friend who’s tried it personally and is excited about their results. Over the years, we’ve heard many patients talk about why they recommend CoolSculpting® med spa treatments to their Kitchener and Cambridge friends. We’ve also had new clients come into our Waterloo clinic because they saw a friend’s excellent results. Whether you’ve heard a rave review or are just interested to learn more, here’s a list of CoolSculpting benefits to consider.

1. CoolSculpting® allows us to target a focused area of fat. 

The innovative handpiece used in CoolSculpting treatment gives your practitioner control to address specific areas. When you’re exercising, you’ve likely noticed that it’s easier to lose weight on some parts of your body rather than others. For some people, their waist loses fat cells more readily, but it takes a long time to lose excess fat on their thighs. Other individuals are happy with their overall shape but just can’t get rid of excess fat in the bra area, under the chin, or on the arms. CoolSculpting allows our experienced practitioners to target a focused area for strategic results. Learn more about how CoolSculpting works in our related blog post.

2. CoolSculpting® targets problem areas without damaging the surrounding tissue or leaving a scar. 

 Fat cells are especially responsive to freezing, so we can effectively freeze fat without affecting nerves, muscles, or surrounding skin tissue. CoolSculpting allows your practitioner to target a specific area precisely, so you can avoid damaging the surrounding tissue or leaving a scar. Other invasive treatments like liposuction can leave marks on the skin, but CoolSculpting doesn’t leave marks or scars.

3. CoolSculpting® doesn’t require surgery and it’s non-invasive.

CoolSculpting can freeze away fat without surgery or invasive treatment. That means no incisions, injections, or lengthy healing time needed. If you’re looking to target fat but you’re not interested in surgery or injections, this is an alternative that could be right for you. Take a look at our CoolSculpting patients’ before and after pictures to get an idea of how well the treatment targets fat.

4. CoolSculpting® is suitable for athletes or those with lower body fat.

Some procedures or treatments that target excess fat work better on a larger volume of fat, but CoolSculpting treatment can work well on smaller bulges of fat on areas like the lower stomach or thighs. In fact, RealSelf reports that it’s best for people with a body mass index of less than 25. Most areas that have fat you can grab or pinch will react well to CoolSculpting treatment. CoolSculpting treatment isn’t right for everyone, so you will need to book a consultation to explore whether it’s right for you. 

5. CoolSculpting® doesn’t require any downtime and fits easily into a busy schedule. 

Because you don’t need to book off time to heal, it’s easy to schedule and plan for CoolSculpting treatments that fit into a busy schedule. You can even catch up on emails or watch part of a show while the innovative, fat-freezing technology does the work for you. During treatment you may experience mild discomfort with the freezing, but many of our patients simply relax or enjoy a book and head back to their daily life immediately following treatment.
