How are different body areas treated with CoolSculpting
SKIN ENVY Austin is one of the areas largest providers of CoolSculpting and offers a variety of CoolSculpting applicators designed in different shapes and/or sizes in order to address the various contours of your body. They include:
CoolCore: This applicator is made to match the contour of most stomachs, making it ideal to treat the upper and lower abdomen.
CoolMini: A miniature applicator that was designed to treat the chin and other smaller areas, including the knees and arm pits
CoolSmooth Pro: This is the only applicator that does not use suction (i.e. fat is not pulled into the applicator for cooling). Instead it rests flat on the treatment area making it ideal for treating dense body areas including the outer thighs and abdomen.
CoolPetite: One of the newest applicators, designed to treat the upper arms.
CoolFit: An ideal applicator to treat vertical body area like the inner thighs
CoolCurve: This applicator is designed to address curved or narrow areas of the body like the love handles or bra back.
Although men and women tend to show fat in different areas, the CoolSculpting procedure works for both men and women.
The CoolSculpting procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas.
Unlike surgical procedures, the CoolSculpting procedure has little to no downtime.
The CoolSculpting procedure was recently awarded “The Best Fat-Reducing Treatment” by NewBeauty!
The CoolSculpting® procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), and upper arm in patients with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of ≤ 30 and in submental and submandibular areas in patients with a BMI of ≤ 46.2. It is also FDA-cleared to affect the appearance of lax tissue with submental area treatments.
CoolSculpting® Important Safety Information
CoolSculpting® is contraindicated in patients with cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria.
Ask your patient about any medical conditions including recent surgery, pre-existing hernia, and any known sensitivities or allergies.
During the procedure patients may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity, and sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental or submandibular area treatment.
Rare side effects may also occur. Paradoxical hyperplasia (visibly enlarged tissue volume in the treated area) may develop 2-5 months after treatment and requires surgical intervention for correction.
As with any medical procedure, a consultation should be done by a licensed healthcare professional to determine if the patient is a candidate for treatment.
The CoolTone™ device is indicated for improvement of abdominal tone, strengthening of the abdominal muscles, and development for firmer abdomen. CoolTone™ is also indicated for strengthening, toning, and firming of buttocks and thighs.
CoolTone™ Important Safety Information
CoolTone™ treatment is contraindicated in placing the active applicator over metal, electrical, or electronic implants/devices in the treatment area like cardiac pacemakers, cochlear implants, intrathecal pumps, implanted defibrillators, implanted neurostimulators, drug pumps, or hearing aids.
CoolTone™ is also contraindicated in placing the active applicator over menstruating uterus, over areas of the skin that lack normal sensation, and in patients with fever, malignant tumor, hemorrhagic conditions, epilepsy, recent surgical procedure, pulmonary insufficiency, or pregnancy.
CoolTone™ should be used with caution in patients with Graves’ disease, active bleeding disorders, or seizure disorders.
Women who are close to menstruation may find that it comes sooner, or cramping is increased or intensified with CoolTone™ treatments, therefore, it is recommended to not undergo treatment during this time of the month.
CoolTone™ should not be used in the heart or head areas, areas of growth plate, over the carotid sinus nerves, or over the neck or mouth. CoolTone™ should not be applied over swollen, infected, inflamed areas or skin eruptions. Caution should be used for patients with suspected or diagnosed heart problems.
