New CoolSmooth PRO applicator treats “Non-Pinchable Areas”

CoolSculpting is an innovative and non-invasive body contouring treatment for fat reduction with no needles, surgery or downtime.

Online PR News – 19-February-2015 – Portsmouth, New Hampshire – Portsmouth, New Hampshire, February 6th, 2015 – CoolSculpting is an innovative and non-invasive body contouring treatment for fat reduction with no needles, surgery or downtime. This new, fast growing technology works by freezing fat cells in targeted areas. The ideal candidate for Coolsculpting is close to their goal weight, with a body mass index of less than 30, yet has persistent areas of fat that diet and exercise alone do not seem to help.

The FDA has recently approved the new “CoolSmooth PRO” Applicator for reducing stubborn, unwanted fat in areas that were previously difficult to treat, such as the outer thighs. Coolsmooth PRO is a second generation surface applicator specifically designed to treat areas of “non-pinchable fat”, which is spread out over a broad surface and usually hard to access with liposuction alone.

Coolsculpting has also received FDA clearance to perform the Coolscultping procedure at lower temperatures which permits shorter treatment times. The CoolSmooth procedure can now be performed in close to half the time, about 30 minutes per side, with the same outcomes, which will considerably improve efficiency and patient’s experience. Patients will get the same effective results in half the time, pleasing many patients. The FDA clearance follows a clinical study which demonstrates that cooler temperatures enable shorter treatment times with equivalent benefits, safety, efficacy, and customer satisfaction when compared to current CoolSculpting treatment constraints.

The new treatment boundaries will be first offered with the CoolSmooth PRO applicator. The CoolSmooth PRO applicator also offers an enhanced strapping system that provides increased adherence to shape and contour at the treatment site while also improving facilitation of use and patient comfort.

The new CoolSmooth PRO applicator delivers precisely controlled, gentle cooling to the selected treatment area specifically targeting fat. The cold brings the underlying fat to temperatures that don’t damage the skin but permanently kills the fat cells so the body can remove them. Starting several weeks after the procedure, the cooled fat cells begin a process called "apoptosis" and begin to shrink. The body proceeds to naturally and gradually eliminate the cooled fat cells through the lymphatic system, reducing the thickness of the fat layer, over a period of 8 to 12 weeks. Approximately two to four months after the Coolsculpting treatment, patients begin to notice significant results in the treated areas.
