The revolutionary CoolSculpting® treatment has long been a firm favourite here at health + aesthetics. It is a fantastic way to lose stubborn areas of fat and tone up without resorting to far more costly and invasive surgical methods, such as liposuction.
Now we are delighted to be able to offer the very latest generation treatment from manufacturer, Zeltiq, known as CoolAdvantage™. This offers all of the effectiveness of CoolSculpting®, yet is faster, more comfortable and less likely to cause bruising.
It uses a technique called cryolipolysis to freeze and destroy fat cells. These are then excreted naturally through the body’s lymphatic system. CoolSculpting is perfect for treating those stubborn areas of fat that never seem to go no matter how much you exercise or diet, such as the tummy, hips, thighs, back, arms or neck. It is fantastic for helping you to lose inches and achieve a firm, trim physique.
So what exactly is different with CoolAdvantage™?
- The handset has a wider cooling panel which increases the surface contact with the skin and allows a larger area to be treated at once.
- It cools the skin to one degree lower which almost halves the overall treatment time. This is typically around 35 mins per treatment area with CoolAdvantage™, as opposed to 60 minutes with the previous CoolSculpting®.
- There is also a new large applicator – the CoolAdvantage Max which is faster and more comfortable for treating larger pockets of fat in one go, such as around the abdomen
- It also causes significantly less bruising and discomfort – in fact, you can return to work or everyday life immediately after treatment.

However, fundamentally it is the same treatment, offering exactly the same high levels of safety, no recovery time and really impressive, long-lasting results. Because of this, it is the only FDA approved, non-surgical fat reduction treatment to use controlled cooling.
What results can I expect to see?
Results naturally vary. However, patients usually report up to a 20-40% fat reduction (in the treated area/s) after just one treatment. Some people opt for a second treatment to achieve optimal results.
Side-effects are usually minor: mainly tenderness for 2 – 3 days. Afterwards and the results will start to appear after a couple of weeks.
As with all inch loss treatments, the key to ensuring the results last is to eat well, maintain a healthy lifestyle and not gain excess weight.
