Differences in Coolsculpting Machines?

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

Thank you for your question. There is only one FDA-approved CoolSculpting machine available. This machine has different size applicators, and each applicator will give better results on different parts of the body. Your doctor will determine which applicator is best. Best of luck.

Only one machine
one machine - two devices, small (6) and large (8). which device is used has to do with which anatomic area your are applying the device, how small or large you are etc.
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
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?
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.

There is only one Coolsculpting machine
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.
CoolSculpting by Zeltiq
Zeltiq is the only company that has produced CoolSculpting. There is no other FDA-cleared fat freezing technology. The company may be eventually adding to the three currently-available applicators to allow physicians to treat different shaped sites.

Are there different CoolSculpting machines?
There is only one CoolSculpting machine. It is manufactured and distributed by a company called Zeltiq. There are other non-invasive fat reduction procedures which work on a different technology. Physicians providing CoolSculpting treatments have at their disposal three different applicators. The choice of the applicator will be dictated by the size and the contour of the bulge you wish to have treated. This will be chosen at the time of your consultation once you have been examined.
