CoolSculpting Safe for Most Patients, Vancouver Physician Advises on Some Contraindications

CoolSculpting Q&A Blog Acknowledges the Application of Cold is a Contraindication to Certain Pre-Existing Medical Conditions

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - October 08, 2015) - Dr. Roz Kamani specializes in procedures such as CoolSculpting and Botox at her in Vancouver Clinic. As front runner in her field, Dr. Kamani encourages patients to ask questions, which are answered in her online blogs. In a recent post, Dr. Kamani published that CoolSculpting can be harmful to patients suffering from blood conditions such as cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. These autoimmune disorders react to cold by producing anti-bodies against one's own blood and its contents. "In both these instances, cold makes the symptoms worse and therefore are contraindicated," writes Dr. Kamani. More information is available at:

On the other hand, CoolSculpting is not considered a contraindication in the case of benign Raynaud's Syndrome where it is quite safe. In this condition, only the fingertips/ toes, when exposed to cold, can feel numb and look purplish blue. This is a reversible condition and is often of a benign variety.

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive technique that uses controlled cooling to target and eliminate unwanted fat cells. Although the technology is relatively new, it has rapidly become a trend among those desiring to treat unwanted stubborn fat.

Dr. Kamani's blog also addresses many other questions about the treatment, including those related to safety and pain.

"It is a safe procedure that has provided excellent beneficial results to many people. However, even though CoolSculpting is FDA approved, the procedure should be conducted or supervised by a physician who is able to understand your medical background for maximum safety," Dr. Kamani advises.
