Orange County CoolSculpting ® Blog
The CoolSculpting ® technique is a non-surgical procedure that reduces unwanted fat on selected areas of the body using a revolutionary cooling technology that was developed by Zeltiq. The CoolSculpting ® procedure is FDA-cleared and scientifically proven in permanent fat reduction.
Targeted fat cells are gently cooled using the CoolSculpting ® procedure. By cooling these fat cells, a natural, controlled termination of fat cells is realized without affecting or damaging the surrounding tissue. Today, nearly 4,000 CoolSculpting ® centers in over 70 countries have performed the CoolSculpting ® treatment with a 95 percent customer satisfaction rate. CoolSculpting ® works by sucking targeted fat and skin into a CoolSculpting ® applicator and freezing the underlying fat in between 2 plates. While a number of CoolSculpting ® applicators have been created for various target sites such as the chin, waist, and thighs, recently Zeltiq created a newer, faster, more versatile, and more efficient applicator for more rapid and effective fat reduction- CoolAdvantage.
The CoolAdvantage now offers CoolSculpting ® treatment time that takes 35 minutes as oppose to the older applicators that took 1 hour. The new CoolAdvantage applicator allows for a lower temperature delivery of the CoolSculpting ® cooling technology which cuts treatment time nearly in half and targets larger treatment areas. Call us today to take advantage of our 4 CoolSculpting ® machines with the CoolAdvantage applicators.
How is the new CoolAdvantage applicator different from the older delivery system?
With an enhanced cup design and an adaptable 3-in-1 configuration of the applicator, the CoolAdvantage applicator dispenses safe and efficient results in just 35 minutes, which is nearly half of the previous CoolSculpting ® delivery time.
Changes in the new applicator cup have led to an increase in patient comfort during treatment. When given a choice, eighty-five percent of patients prefer the new CoolAdvantage applicator due to increased comfort and decreased treatment time.
Why should I choose CoolSculpting ® with the new CoolAdvantage applicator for fat reduction over liposuction?
With more than 10 years of safety and efficiency data, millions of successful CoolSculpting ® treatments worldwide, and over 60 published clinical publications, the CoolSculpting ® fat reduction procedure has stood up to the test of time and established itself as the gold standard in non-invasive fat reduction.
What are the new changes to the CoolAdvantage applicator?
CoolAdvantage applicators come with three interchangeable contours:
- CoolFit Advantage is perfect for vertical expanses of fat such as the inner thigh
- CoolCore Advantage best matches the curves of the abdomen
- CoolCurve+ Advantage is ideal for fat in the flanks
How does CoolSculpting ® work?
Fat that has not responded to diet or exercise may be selectively reduced using the CoolSculpting ® system. The CoolSculpting ® procedure is based on the scientific principle that surrounding tissues and overlying skin are not as affected by cold than fat cells. Using a patented technology of precisely controlled cooling, the temperature of fat cells in an area are reduced to cause fat cell crystallization and death. ZELTIQ, the CoolSculpting ® creator, devised a procedure to reduce the fat layer with this controlled cooling process in a safe and noticeable way. Most patients treated begin to see results as soon as three weeks after treatment, with the most noticeable results occurring over a one to three-month period.
The CoolSculpting ® treatment will not help a patient loose weight and is not recommended for obese patients. However, if you would like to loose unwanted, stubborn fat that diet and exercise cannot get rid of, or look slimmer and have your clothes fit better, CoolSculpting ® with the new CoolAdvantage applicators may be the best option for you.
