Introducing the New and Improved CoolSculpting Treatment

CoolSculpting has made a name for itself as one of the most effective methods of nonsurgical body contouring today. This treatment uses targeted cooling to freeze away fat cells without damaging surrounding skin and tissue. Now, the procedure experience is even better for patients due to recent advances in technology. If you have thought about CoolSculpting in the past, but never got around to trying out the procedure, there are plenty of good reasons to give it a go now and get the body contour you haven’t been able to achieve with exercise and diet alone.

Faster Treatment

The original CoolSculpting treatment used an applicator that was placed over the treatment area and left in place for one hour. If you wanted more than one area addressed, your time in our office could be rather lengthy as we treated those various locations. Now, the treatment time for this procedure has been shortened to 35 minutes, nearly half of the original time frame. Enhancements in the technology allow for the delivery of colder temperatures, ensuring fat cells are destroyed faster and your treatment time is briefer than traditional CoolSculpting treatments.

In addition to the shorter procedure, this new technology has produced other benefits. Patients report a more pleasant treatment experience overall, with a 45-percent reduction in discomfort. At the same time, the new applicators used for the quicker treatment process can be applied to other areas of the body that previously did not respond well to this treatment. This means you can enjoy even more benefits from your CoolSculpting treatment as we can address hard-to-reach areas like the inner thighs and underneath the arms where fat commonly accumulates.

New Options in Handpieces

CoolSculpting’s innovative new handpieces in their CoolAdvantage line offer a myriad of benefits to our patients. Handpieces used at Umansky Plastic Surgery include:

CoolFit Advantage

The CoolFit Advantage is a valuable addition to the CoolSculpting line because it allows us to treat inner thighs with a precision never managed with this treatment before now. As more patients are requesting contouring in this area due to the popularity of the “thigh gap,” we can offer a nonsurgical solution to this concern that removes up to 25 percent of the stubborn fat on the inner thighs in just 35 minutes of treatment time.

CoolCore Advantage

This applicator is primarily used to sculpt the abdominal region and is our most popular option for this purpose. It is specifically designed to treat larger areas, which is why it is effective in smoothing and flattening the midsection.

CoolCore Advantage Plus

This larger version of the CoolCore Advantage is known as the “de-bulking” applicator because it works well on both the upper and lower abdomen to reduce the bulge before sculpting the area with another handpiece. The CoolCore Advantage Plus allows us to remove a larger area of fat without adding treatment time and increasing a patient’s discomfort during the procedure.

CoolCurve Advantage

This handpiece is the ideal choice for treating the love handles, as the curved shape of the applicator fits around the outer flanks perfectly. The goal is to create a more defined waist and a smoother outer contour from the hips to the thighs. Trimming the fat in this area also allows you to wear your smaller jean size comfortably.

CoolCurve Advantage Plus

If you want to eliminate belly hangover during your CoolSculpting session, the CoolCurve Advantage Plus may be the handpiece we select for your procedure. This applicator is also designed for a larger treatment area, which means maximum fat reduction for you. The subtle curve of the handpiece also allows for treatment of smaller areas like the arms and can be effectively used on a man’s chest as a gynecomastia treatment.

Choosing the right handpiece for you will depend on the size of the treatment area and the results you want to achieve. Drs. William and Jeffrey Umansky and their experienced team will advise you on the best process for your specific needs.

Eliminating Chin Fat

Submental fat underneath the chin can be as big of a concern for aging men and women as the appearance of wrinkles on the face. In the past, the only way to address this issue was with surgical treatments like liposuction or a neck lift, which involved anesthesia, incisions and a recovery period. Thanks to the introduction of a new handpiece known as the CoolMini, submental fat can now be treated non-surgically using the CoolSculpting device. We can even combine this procedure with nonsurgical skin tightening to further enhance the results along your jawline and neck.

Body contouring has never been faster or more comfortable, thanks to recent advancements in the CoolSculpting procedure. As experts in this treatment, our surgeons and the rest of our staff are equipped to provide you with the procedure that will address your specific needs and give you the results you want. If you maintain a healthy weight after your treatment, you should enjoy your new contours for many years. To find out more about CoolSculpting, contact Umansky Plastic Surgery today at 858-281-4560.
