Coolsculpting is a registered trademark from Zeltiq. These machines are more effective and safer from both the patient's and provider's standpoint then the imitators.

Cool Sculpting devices

+1
These machines are all produced by Zeltiq.  If they are not from this company then they are not Cool Sculpting machines.  There are many imitation devices on the market now.

There is only one CoolSculpting machine available that is made by Zeltiq. CoolSculpting offers different applicators that vary based on the different areas treated. You clinician will be able to best determine which applicator will be ideal to use on particular areas of your body.

CoolSculpting, Dual CoolSculpting. Zeltiq what's the difference?

+1

There is just one type of CoolSculpting machine. It is made by a company called Zeltiq. There re different sizes of handpieces for different areas of the body. It is true that in order for CoolSculpting to be effective  the handpiece must fit the area securely.

Some practices use the term DualSculpting or Dual CoolSculpting to describe a treatment when two systems are used so that both love handles, muffin tops, or back rolls can be treated simultaneously.   In my practice we do use two systems simultaneously. We also offer vibrational therapy to stimulate the lymphatic system and compression garments to provide comfort.

CoolSculpting iby Zelttiq is FDA approved for Fat elimination. if there are "knock off" brands, I am not aware of other devices FDA approved fro freezing fat at this time.

Zeltiq is the only cool sculpting  machine that has been FDA cleared for “fat freezing”. The device has 3 different applicators that can be used on different sizes of  adipose tissue “pockets”.

The CoolSculpting machine

+1

There is only one CoolSculpting machine. It is FDA approved and made by Zeltiq. It has 3 attachments used for different parts of the body. The one for the abdomen is about twice the size as the small and medium ones. So the hand pieces are used for the areas that are to be treated.

Are There Different Coolsculpting Machines?

+1

Hi,

There is only one FDA Coolsculpting Machine made by Zeltiq Aesthetics.  The only difference in the treatments is the size of the applicator used with the Coolsculpting Machine.  There is a small, medium, and large applicator.  The difference in the applicators is because different applicators fit the desired area better than others.  This also determines the cost since the large applicator is about twice the price of the small/medium applicators.  However, the large applicator sucks in 2.5 times more fat than the smaller applicators.  Truly, for the best result, you need an in person consultation to evaluate the area you want treated to see which applicator fits it best.

 

Best,

There is only one Coolsculpting machine. There are currently three different hand held applicators that attach to the main Coolsculpting device. The hand held applicators are different size and shape and are selected based upon your physician's examination and recommendations.
