Coolsculpting Provides Improvement in Body Contour That lasts!
There is currently only one Coolsculpting machine
There is currently only one Coolsculpting machine. So any office that offers this has the same base machine. What does differ are the various applicators. There are different shaped applicators that are used based on the body area and contour of the area. Plus with the newer applicators, treatment times have decreased to almost half (from 60mins to 35mins) for most body areas. We currently use 2 Coolsculpting machines known as Dual Sculpt, which allows us to apply up to 2 applicators at once (depending on treatment area) to speed up the whole process. Prices vary for treatment based on how many, and which applicators are used. You can expect approximately a 20-25% reduction of the fat in the treatment area per applicator.
The CoolSculpting procedure can involve several different applicators. As the applicators are designed for specific areas on the body, one applicator may be better than another depending on the area you might want to treat. Recently, Zeltiq has introduced a new CoolSculpting applicator called the CoolAdvantage applicator. One cycle with the CoolAdvantage applicator is only 35 minutes. This means that patients can complete their treatment with CoolSculpting in almost half the time. Patients who seek a provider with multiple machines can shorten their treatment time even further as they can utilize two applicators at one time. For patients interested in CoolSculpting, it is important to research the provider and ensure he or she has attended CoolSculpting University and received the proper training. Patients should seek out an office where treatments are supervised by a board-certified plastic surgeon. Good luck in your research!

Coolsculpting is an excellent form of non-invasive fat reduction for the right patient. There are different applicators that are used on different area. Some applicators take 1 or 2 hours but the new advantage applicators take only 35 minutes and have significantly less risk for delayed onset pain (especially in the abdomen). Results are seen at 2 months and typically 1-3 treatments will be necessary on each area to achieve ideal results. The number of treatments depends on the amount of fat there and the patient's goals. There is not downtime and the results can be impressive in the right patient. We also use the Zimmer Z-wave for improved patient comfort and added results. The best candidates are those who are in pretty good shape with areas of stubborn fat that won't go away no matter what.Zeltiq usually sets the base price, however, prices range from clinic to clinic. You can visit zeltiq website to see which doctor is near you. It is important to have the procedure done with a doctor who is experienced in cool sculpting

Cool Sculpting devices
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.
