CoolSculpting’s New CoolAdvantage Applicator – Smaller and Cuts the Time in Half!CoolSculpting is one of the most popular fat reduction treatments for people who want alternatives to plastic surgery to achieve enhanced body contours.

The procedure traditionally takes about one hour for a single treatment session. However, now Zeltiq, the innovative manufacturer of CoolSculpting has introduced a new 3-in-1 CoolAdvantage applicator that is smaller, more effective, and cuts down the treatment nearly in half.

The new applicator is significantly more comfortable and clinical studies as well as pilot tests have shown that patients preferred CoolAdvantage over other alternatives. Board certified plastic surgeons at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery provide CoolAdvantage fat reduction treatment to patients in Richmond, Virginia, and surrounding locations.

Advanced Design

The cutting edge CoolSculpting cooling process with the CoolAdvantage group of applicators can now be delivered at a lower temperature, which allows the treatment time to be reduced nearly in half. The highlights of the new applicator are an adaptable 3-in-1 configuration and an improved cup design. Larger direct tissue contact is enabled with CoolAdvantage due to the enhance shape of the applicator cup.

When coupled with a lowered temperature, the applicator can help to create desirable fat reduction results in about 35 minutes. This effectively translates to about 50 percent lesser treatment time than the traditional CoolSculpting process. Patients seeking fat reduction alternatives to plastic surgery now have an additional benefit to choose CoolAdvantage treatment.


Improved Patient Comfort

The patient comfort with the new applicator cup design has led to an increase of 45 percent in terms of patient comfort during the treatment, according to the results of a clinical study. Over 85 percent of the participants in the study indicated a preference for CoolAdvantage procedure due to the increased comfort and shorter treatment time.

Suzanne Kilmer, the Principal Investigator of the clinical study, said: “I am proud to have contributed to Zeltiq’s collection of clinical data, most recently with the CoolAdvantage applicator clinical study. The CoolSculpting procedure has stood the test of time with more than 10 years of safety and efficacy data, over 60 published clinical publications and millions of treatments performed worldwide.”


Flexibility to Treat Multiple Areas

CoolSculpting procedure is now more flexible than ever before because of the three interchangeable contours of CoolAdvantage. It comes with three unique applicators to treat multiple areas in the body as follows:

CoolFit Advantage: Ideal for vertical areas of fat such as the inner thigh CoolCore Advantage: Best matches the contours of the abdomen CoolCurve+ Advantage: Applicator of choice for flanks

Astute and committed plastic surgeons at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery receive patients from Richmond, Virginia, and nearby areas for CoolSculpting fat reduction treatments. Mark Foley, the President and CEO of Zeltiq, said at the launch of the new CoolAdvantage applicator that now CoolSculpting patients can expect to have improved outcomes due to greater comfort and shorter treatment times.

In a single treatment session, multiple areas can now be treated more effectively. Unwanted fat bulges in areas such as the thighs, flanks, abdomen, and under the chin can be effectively reduced with CoolSculpting.
