Freeze away stubborn fat with CoolAdvantage

CoolAdvantage revolutionized the way in which we now treat our CoolSculpting patients for non-surgical fat reduction. The amount of skin and fat that is sucked and held into the applicator is more than the earlier equipment with CoolSculpting. The freeze is more homogenous and more effective. The treatment is even more comfortable and most cycles take about half the time it required with the first CoolSculpting devices.

At Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York, we are one of the very few practices in the country that has four devices so we can schedule DualScupting, CoolSculpting on a pair of lovehandles, arms, bra fat or thighs, at the same time. With the new technology and the ability to treat two areas at the same time, what used to take two hours, now can take as little as 35 minutes.

Fat cells die at a temperature that is warmer than the freezing point of skin so the fat cells are affected while the skin is preserved. Many patients require more than one treatment and the sessions are scheduled two months apart.

As each patient has a different anatomical shape, all patients are seen by Dr. Shelton and evaluated to determine how many applicators are need per cosmetic area. This information is needed to calculate total treatment time and price as the latter is dependent on the number of applicators. All applicators are applied during the day of treatment by Dr. Shelton, not his nurse.

When CoolSculpting was first offered to my patients when it first came out many years ago, Dr. Shelton says, one applicator was put on the upper and one on the lower abdomen in many cases, or just one on the lower abdomen. After a few years we realized that the lateral abdominal fat needed better treatment and Zeltiq trained its doctors in the new program, Treatment to Transformation. We then began using overlapping applications of CoolSculpting applicators, requiring 4-6 applicators for many patients. This created an amazing improvement.

Treatment to transformation is made more practical by the new CoolAdvantage technology.


This type of great result is dependent on the physician knowing the anatomy, by understanding the patient's lifestyle and encouraging continued or improved diet and exercise and planning the best Treatment for Transformation program for that individual. This personalized attention is not always given at a non-physician CoolSculpting center.
