CoolSculpting changed the way the world views nonsurgical fat elimination. While it may seem like the noninvasive treatment had little room for improvement, ZELTIQ, the maker of CoolSculpting, has done just that by redesigning their applicator. Introduced in June, their streamlined CoolAdvantage is proving to have remarkable benefits over the original CoolSculpting procedure.
A recent study, performed by Suzanne L. Kilmer, M.D., revealed that CoolAdvantage has three key advantages over traditional CoolSculpting. Published in the American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery (ASLMS) journal, Lasers in Surgery and Medicine, Dr. Kilmer’s peer-reviewed study determined the CoolAdvantage has a shorter treatment time, increased comfort level, and treats a greater area of issue than CoolSculpting’s first generation of applicators. With patients preferring CoolAdvantage over CoolSculpting by 85%, the findings of Dr. Kilmer’s study are noteworthy.
Shorter Treatment Time with CoolAdvantage:
A treatment with the CoolAdvantage takes only 35 minutes, while traditional CoolSculpting would take a full hour. This 42% reduction in treatment time is made possible with the revolutionary new cup design. The contoured shape makes better contact with the tissue and provides colder temperatures, allowing the same great results in almost half the time.
Greater Comfort with CoolAdvantage:
While CoolSculpting is considered a pain-free procedure, the CoolAdvantage applicator, the CoolCup, shows even better patient comfort scores. The redesigned CoolCup applicator produces maximum results with less vacuum skin tension and a shorter treatment time, resulting in 45% lower pain scores. Additionally, easing the skin suction means CoolAdvantage results in 82% less bruising.
More Tissue Treated with CoolAdvantage:
CoolAdvantage’s new CoolCup applicator is contoured, to sit closer to the target tissues, for better treatment coverage. While the original CoolCore applicator provides similar results, the CoolAdvantage cryolipolysis cup provides consistent benefits across a larger area. This means CoolAdvantage patients will see more extensive results, in half the time, and with less discomfort, than using CoolSculpting’s traditional technique.
