When patients receive CoolSculpting treatments for non-invasive fat removal, a specially designed cooling applicator is applied to the desired area of fat reduction to extract energy from (or cool) the underlying fat tissue without damage to other tissues.
Most of the CoolSculpting applicators use vacuum pressure to draw the tissue between the cooling panels. During the procedure, the applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling conditions that have been proven to target and eliminate fat cells in specific areas of the body. When fat cells are exposed to precise cooling, they trigger a process of natural removal that gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer.
In the United States, FDA-cleared CoolSculpting treatment areas are abdomen, flank, thigh, submental area, underneath the buttock, upper arm, bra fat and back fat. Practices can choose from a wide range of CoolSculpting applicators specially designed to eliminate fat for good in these treatment areas.
With CoolSculpting treatments, there are no needles, no incisions, no need for anesthesia, and no recovery time. This procedure is convenient for most patients, lasting 1 to 3 hours.During their treatments, they can read, work on their laptop computer, listen to music, or just relax. Most patients typically resume their routine activities, even returning to work and exercise regimens on the same day as the procedure.
ZELTIQ has been working closely with leading physicians on a new, advanced concept called Treatment to Transformation, or T2T. This holistic approach explores using global patient assessment, addressing all potential treatment areas and recommending a sufficient number of treatments in a given area to address the individual patient’s concerns and desired outcomes.
Reflecting on the current approach with fillers—The T2T approach for the CoolSculpting procedure follows the same principles that physicians around the world adopted from experience with dermal fillers. One syringe does not equal full correction. Today, full correction can take 3 or more syringes. Practitioners take a “whole face” approach to visualize the outcome.
Set the stage for CoolSculpting success with the first consultation. Perform a 360° global assessment of your patient’s whole body. Address all potential treatment areas. Then, create a customized treatment plan ensuring full coverage of treatable fat. Reassess, re-plan, and re-treat for the desired CoolSculpting outcome.
