Your questions in regards to applicators and area to be treated is one to be answered by your clinician based on the orientation of the fat and the size of the area being treated. Zeltiq has manufactured many different applicators to go with various parts of the body, however, during an in office consultation, it would be determined which applicator is best suited for you and your desired outcome. Unfortunately looking at photos cannot determine what is best for you. I hope this information helps.
Choosing the Correct Applicator
Choosing the correct applicator is based on the shape of the bulge and the applicator itself. You cannot assess this with a photo. For the best cosmetic results you would best go to a board certified dermatologist certified by Coolsculpting. Best, Dr. Green
Selecting the correct CoolSculpting Applicator
Dear swittsexxy22: Thanks for sharing your photo. The applicator with the best "fit" is the one that will work best. While applicators are made to fit a certain area, say the chin, it may also fit a small patients breast roll or upper inner thigh. Sometimes no applicator fits and other options need to be considered. Always choose a Certified CoolSculpting Team to administer your CoolSculpting for the best results! Good luck!
The CoolFit can be used on the abdomen. The provider assesses to see how your orientation of fat goes. Some patients are better candidates for the CoolFit than the CoolCore. Without assessing in person it's hard to tell. Most patients need more than one treatment. You should wait the 3-4 months to see your results and then get re-evaluated.
Applicator size / selection for coolsculpting
Appropriate selection and placement of applicators for coolsculpting is the most important factor for good results. Different applicators may be used in order to get the correct tissue vaccuum. It would be difficult to judge from pictures what would be best. In general, see an expert and avoid clinics where the doctor isn't present and doesn't evaluate you. Give the area 3-4 months and re-evalauate; best of luck.
CoolSculpting Applicator Sizes
It is hard to know if that is the right applicator for you without accessing you in person. The CoolFit can be used on the abdomen, and your provider may have used that because of the way your fat pulls. It treats all of the subcutaneous fat the is pulled into the applicator, so whatever was pulled into the applicator was treated. Wait the full 3 months to see your results, and then see if you need a 2nd treatment or not. With the 2nd treatment, your abdomen may have changed and you may need a different applicator. Best of luck!
Although the cool fit device is not as common on the abdomen it has the same surface treatment area as the cool core. I would not worry about the choice in applicator to be honest. The cool fit actually has a longer cooling panel than the cool core applicator, the shape of the applicator is the difference meaning how and where it can be placed. The markings and applicator you mention don't throw up a red flag for me. I hope that eases your mind. Best of Luck.
