Zeltiq has announced a new CoolSculpting applicator that increases the areas that can be treated with this nonsurgical, noninvasive fat removal technique. The new applicator, called CoolSmooth, is now available at Amerejuve clinics.
In the past, CoolSculpting was most effective on areas with pinchable fat. The original applicators pull in skin and unwanted fat, and are then able to treat it. These applicators weren’t as effective on fat that wasn’t pinchable, which for some includes fat on the outer thigh. Now, those trouble spots can be treated even more effectively with the new CoolSmooth applicator.
The technology remains the same as original CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting uses cold to destroy fat cells, which are more susceptible to cold temperatures than other types of cells. By targeting fat cells specifically, CoolSculpting leaves the surrounding tissue healthy, and only fat cells are destroyed. Over time, the fat cells are purged naturally by the body, removing inches from the treated areas.
According to Zeltiq’s studies, 92 percent of patients have a noticeable difference after just one treatment. Patients’ personal goals are usually best served by one to three treatments, depending on the area to be treated and the goals for the fat removal.
A single treatment usually takes about an hour, and many clients use that time to nap, catch up on e-mails, or even watch television.
It’s important to note that CoolSculpting is effective at reducing inches, but it will create little overall weight loss in terms of pounds. For weight loss, Amerejuve’s Weight and Wellness service, Amerefit, can provide testing and guidance for effective, personalized weight loss.
The results of CoolSculpting are long-lasting as long as the patient maintains healthy nutrition and exercise. No supplements or specific diet are required. While fat cells in the treated areas are removed permanently, that does not prevent the body from gaining weight, possibly in other areas.
