Avenue Skin Care Doubles Its Capacity for CoolSculpting® in Yorkville, Toronto

TORONTO, ON --(Marketwired - March 15, 2016) - As an early adopter of the fat-reduction treatment known as CoolSculpting®, the Yorkville, Toronto, area's Avenue Skin Care recently expanded its body contouring services by adding a second CoolSculpting® device to the practice.

With twice the equipment available, the team at Avenue Skin Care can offer what is known as DualSculpting. Since this method can tackle two areas at once, it halves the time a patient needs to spend receiving the procedure. Love handles on either side of the body, for instance, can be treated simultaneously, as opposed to first one, then the other.

While the initial focus for CoolSculpting® was large areas, such as the flank and belly, the release of new handpieces by manufacturer Zeltiq has allowed patients to receive more finely focused attention on smaller-scale regions. One in particular, CoolMini®, can be applied to the neck area to get rid of submental fat that creates a double chin. Avenue Skin Care added CoolMini® to its lineup for use with its pair of machines, and it has quickly proven to be a popular option.

CoolSculpting® works due to the fact that fat cells freeze and die off at a temperature that does not harm the skin or any other internal tissues or structures. By lowering the temperature of problem fat, the device can trigger what is known as apoptosis: the death of targeted fat cells, which are then processed and naturally eliminated by the body.

This treatment is intended for body sculpting purposes, not as a weight-loss device. People who choose CoolSculpting® use it to tame areas where stubborn fat collects and remains despite dieting and an increase in physical activity. The treatment is considered minimally invasive, since it involves no incisions. More than 2 million treatments have been performed worldwide. It is safe, effective, and FDA- and Health Canada-approved.

In addition to CoolSculpting®, Avenue Skin Care offers a variety of skin-based services, including BOTOX®, dermal fillers, and laser skin resurfacing, as well as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and more. The practice also offers ZWave™ to eradicate cellulite.

Avenue Skin Care is at 110 Cumberland St., Second Floor, Toronto, M5R 1A6. For more information about CoolSculpting® in the Yorkville area, call (416) 962-0001.
