By now just about everyone has heard about CoolSculpting, but may not be exactly sure what it is or how it works. The nonsurgical procedure tackles those stubborn pockets of fat that no amount of diet and exercise seem to be able to eliminate. While already successful, Coolsculpting, like any other procedures or technologies, is always advancing. Recently added to the CoolSculpting family is the new CoolADVANTAGE applicator. Before explaining how CoolADVANTAGE has made the CoolSculpting procedure even better, let’s review for those who aren’t sure how it works or haven’t tried it yet.
What is CoolSculpting?
This non-invasive fat reduction procedure is literally a triple play when it comes to benefits. First, it is effective when all else fails to get rid of obstinate fat bulges that keep you from achieving the body you want.
With a great safety profile, there is no need for the worry or concern with CoolSculpting that can sometimes be associated with surgical non-invasive fat reduction methods. The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the thigh, abdomen, flank and the submental area below the chin.
And last but not least, CoolSculpting has an excellent duration of response. The CoolSculpting process targets and reduces fat cells in the treated area. Each person is born with only a limited number of fat cells, so even if a person should regain weight after they have had the procedure, the treated areas will still show results. CoolSculpting results are basically permanent.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
Instead of using heat like some of its predecessors, CoolSculpting uses cold to freeze fat cells, causing them to crystallize and die. Over the first two to three months following the procedure, the fat cells are naturally broken down and eliminated by your body.
Who is the Perfect CoolSculpting Candidate?
Someone who is within twenty to thirty pounds of their ideal body weight and is struggling with those final pounds is a good candidate for CoolSculpting. It is also extremely beneficial if they are active and continue to get out and get exercise following the procedure. It is not meant for the treatment of obesity or extreme weight loss.
How Many Treatments are Needed?
While it depends on the size of the fat pockets, typically one to two treatments are all that is necessary. For some people, your CoolSculpting provider may recommend more to achieve optimum results. Generally, each treatment will result in a 15 to 30% reduction of the treated fat pocket.
How Does CoolSculpting Feel?
CoolSculpting uses a vacuum effect to pull in the area to be treated and expose it to the cold. At first, a cold tingling, sometimes intense sensation is experienced. CoolSculpting technology was initially designed as a numbing technique. After about five minutes the area being treated will go numb. There really is no recovery or downtime. Normal activities can be resumed almost immediately.
SO, What is CoolADVANTAGE?
CoolADVANTAGE is a new CoolSculpting applicator with three interchangeable contours ideal for the abdomen, flanks, and inner thighs. There is the CoolCore Advantage for the abdomen, CoolCurve+ Advantage for the flanks and CoolFit Advantage for the inner thighs.
The big benefits of the CoolADVANTAGE applicator are speed and comfort. Because it has been made to reach a new lower temperature, the CoolADVANTAGE may be slightly colder but treatment time is greatly reduced. It is only 35 minutes as opposed to the hour it took previously. With busy schedules and people always on the go, this is a great time saver.
The CoolADVANTAGE has also been redesigned to reduce discomfort by 45%. The cup in the hand-piece is now a bit wider and more shallow, meaning that the suction that occurs is a bit less steep and lowers potential for minor bruising during treatment. The majority of patients who undergo the treatment tolerate it well, with little to no discomfort.
