New CoolSculpting Applicators Reduce Treatment Time to 35 Minutes
CoolSculpting by Zeltiq has introduced a new range of applicators that are made to not only be more compatible with the various curves and shapes people have – but also to lower the amount of time needed to undergo the procedure. The treatment cycles are now only 35 minutes, reducing treatment time by almost half!
As detailed on our section about CoolSculpting and various FAQs about it, the fat is removed via a patented Cryolipolysis technology that uses vacuum pressure to draw the tissue between the cooling panels and then freezes the fat cells away. It is FDA cleared for treating fat in areas such as the abdomen, thighs and even the double chin.
Dr. Michele Green is one of the first doctors in NYC with the new CoolAdvantage Applicator that helps adjust to the patient’s shapes and features a range of interchangeable contoured applicators, ideal for various areas of your body.
As shown in the image below, Dr. Green uses the CoolMini applicator for the double chin, the CoolCurve+ Applicator for love handles, the CoolCore applicator for the abdominal area, along with the CoolSmooth Applicator for outer thighs and the CoolFit Applicator for the inner thighs.
Each of the applicators are interchangeable and customized for the area, featuring larger “cooling” areas than previous applicators. The additional customization helps reduce treatment cycle times and patients have reported more comfort with the new contoured designs.
Trials have shown a similar average in fat reduction (around 20%) and with no needles, no surgery and no downtime, CoolSculpting has fast become a popular option for men and women around the country, with the treatment being featured in the press, on TV ads, in magazines and even on billboards.
