Here’s Why CoolSculpting® Works


Why is CoolSculpting® treatment so popular?

Coolsculpting is one of the most popular treatments at our Oakville clinic, and a big part of that is the wonderful word-of-mouth that happens when patients love a treatment they’ve received. As we swing into summer, our patients are embracing their natural beauty and taking back control over stubborn pockets of fat. But how does CoolSculpting work? Let’s explore what makes this treatment so popular.

How does CoolSculpting® work?

This innovative fat-freezing treatment uses a scientific process called cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells. During treatment, a handheld applicator and a gel are applied to your skin. The cooling treatment freezes fat cells without harming nearby fat or skin cells. Once fat cells in the targeted area are frozen, your body’s natural processes take over. The dead cells are moved out through your body’s lymphatic system naturally, resulting in a smoother, firmer appearance in the treated area over time.

Can I use CoolSculpting® anywhere?

CoolSculpting is meant for bulges or pockets of fat that won’t go away, even with exercise. This means areas like love handles, thighs, upper arms, submental (double chin) fat, back, or abdomen. Our skilled practitioners can help establish where CoolSculpting might work for you. 

CoolSculpting® is non-invasive

Our patients love how quick and effective CoolSculpting is. It doesn’t require incisions, injections, or time off. The way your body reacts is dependent on the type of area treated, but most patients find that they can go right back into their day following treatment. 

Find out if CoolSculpting® is right for you

CoolSculpting is ideal for people who are living a healthy lifestyle and at a weight that’s healthy for them. It’s not a good solution for large areas of excess fat, obesity, or extreme weight loss. If you’re healthy and you have those annoying pockets of fat that don’t respond to exercise and a healthy diet, this procedure could be right for you.
