Coolsculpt. Can different Dr use the machine at different temperatures so a patient may need several visits? (photo)

Can you change the temperature on a Coolsculpting Machine?
The coolsculpting machine is generally pre-set to a cooling temperature (and not regularly varying by the physician). The reason for multiple treatments is due to the requirements of the area being treated. Cool sculpting works by the vacuum applicator pulling in the tissue/fat and cooling it to a temperature required to cause natural cell death, apoptosis. Because not all of the area can be pulled into the applicator, not all cells are programmed for cell death, thus requiring more treatments to reach more area(s).

The temperature on the Coolsculpting device is not able to be manipulated by the provider. The time of the treatment and the suction level can be manipulated, but the best result will always be achieved when the provider uses the protocol from Zeltiq. It is not recommended to stray from their protocol.
