What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting® by ZELTIQ® is a revolutionary FDA-approved procedure that is an alternative to liposuction for people who have a small amount of diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting® is a totally non-invasive, in-office procedure that uses Cryolipolysis™ (destruction of fat) to target, freeze, and eliminate fat cells. It requires no anesthesia or pain medication, as it is a very simple in-office procedure.
CoolSculpting can be done on the belly, back (“bra bulge”), love handles, and now on arms and legs.
Dr. Jaliman also offers Vanquish, another method of fat removal which uses radio frequency to destroy the fat cells:
CoolSculpting and Vanquish have different uses in body sculpting and can be used together to effectively reduce fat and shape the body. CoolSculpting is best for larger areas, such as belly rolls or substantial love handles. Vanquish is specially designed to redefine your core. Vanquish treats the problematic midsection, thighs and arms in the least amount of treatments and the shortest amount of time.
What are the new advances for CoolSculpting?
Exciting news - two new hand pieces for CoolSculpting.
There is a new applicator for CoolSculpting, it cuts the treatment time almost in half, Instead of one hour it is 35 minutes. It is a big advance in technology because it works at a lower temperature. It has a unique applicator that increases patient comfort. There is also less swelling and less bruising.
There is also another new hand piece that lays flat against the skin that does not require any suction. This would be great for someone who is very thin and wants to remove a small layer of fat. In the past you needed an inch to pinch; now you can remove the smallest inch of fat using this new hand piece.
