Dr. Caroline Tosoni Expands CoolSculpting® in Ottawa

The Noninvasive Fat-Reduction Method Joins BOTOX®, Thermage®, and Other Popular Treatments at Tosoni MD

OTTAWA, ON --(Marketwired - April 07, 2016) - Dr. Caroline Tosoni first added CoolSculpting® to her menu of medical aesthetic services in August 2015, and her practice celebrated its 350th application of the noninvasive fat reduction treatment on March 1. As it is elsewhere around North America, CoolSculpting® is an Ottawa favorite for patients looking to achieve slimmer contours without surgery.

BOTOX®, an injectable that temporarily smooths out wrinkles, is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world today, and its rise has ushered in an era of understanding: Incisions and invasive medical procedures are no longer necessary for people who want to reclaim a more youthful appearance with tight skin, sleek lines, and plenty of confidence. Thus, we have BOTOX® that treats forehead lines and crow's feet, dermal fillers that add volume, Thermage® that stimulates collagen production, and non-surgical facelift options.

Unlike BOTOX® and dermal fillers, however, the effects of a CoolSculpting® treatment -- which eliminates fat, not wrinkles -- are essentially permanent if supported by proper diet and exercise. The device lowers the temperature of fat cells, destroying them without harming any of the surrounding tissue. The useless cells are then naturally eliminated by the body. New fat cells do not replace them anytime soon.

CoolSculpting® has a variety of applicators so it can be used to the best effect on different areas of the body. A single session can focus on the abdomen and flanks, getting rid of love handles and belly fat, or it may use CoolMini® to target the small pocket of submental fat at the neck that creates a double chin. Results from either treatment are visible in a matter of weeks, though multiple sessions that reduce the amount of unwanted fat by about 20 percent each may be required to create a patient's desired results.

Tosoni MD became a Certified CoolSculpting® Practice on Jan. 18, 2016, meaning everyone involved with CoolSculpting® in the clinic has successfully completed a rigorous training and evaluation process with manufacture Zeltiq. The intent is to ensure a safe and effective treatment with the best outcome possible for every patient who comes in seeking CoolSculpting®, no matter who helps them.

Dr. Tosoni and her medical aesthetician attended CoolSculpting® University March 17 and 18 in Reston, Virginia, to receive advanced and current training and learn up-to-date treatment techniques -- an investment in future patients, since interest in CoolSculpting® shows no signs of slowing.
