We first introduced fat freezing into our list of services through CoolSculpting, which is also known as cryolipolysis. It is a process where fat cells are destroyed by subjecting it to very low temperature, which makes it a nonsurgical body contouring procedure.
However, this technique is now on the scene to give us a leg up in this seemingly relentless battle against stubborn fats. This recent addition is CoolAdvantage.
CoolAdvantage is a collection of redesigned applicators by Zeltiq, which is the same company behind CoolSculpting.Its recent form is intended to improve the way it follows the varying contours of the body so that it can deliver the intended action where it is needed. It features a different set of configurations, an enhanced cup design, and shorter treatment time.
It is commonly known that getting rid of stubborn fats is an exercise that often comes with its own set of frustrations. There are areas where fat tissues don’t seem to budge regardless of the amount of workout you put in.
Fat freezing is a non-invasive process of destroying unwanted fat deposits using very low temperatures. Using one paddle, a section of skin is suctioned into a cup to crystallize underlying fat cells. This type of treatment was based on an observation doctors made of children who ate a lot of ice pop experienced fat degradation in their cheeks. Since fat is more temperature-sensitive than the skin, this treatment causes it to undergo cell death before it affects the skin.
CoolAdvantage takes fat freezing to another level. With lower temperature settings, it can do the work 40% faster (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5298010/). It also comes with a different set of applications within one applicator. It includes the following:
- CoolFit Advantage: targets vertical areas of fat like the inner thighs and inner arms
- CoolCore Advantage: targets the contours of the abdomen
- CoolCore+Advantage:targets the flanks
With a certain number of sessions, CoolAdvantage will create a fat reduction in problem areas. However, you don’t expect these to be as dramatic as surgical treatments.It is permanent fat reduction technology, but only if patients control their weight.Any weight gain will cause the remaining fat cells to increase in size, or fat buildup will grow somewhere else.
CoolAdvantage is ideal for anybody who is determined to get rid of stubborn fats but is always pressed for time. There is no need to recover from this treatment, which means that you can return to your usual activities afterwards.
Since fat freezing cannot address skin sagging, it can do well if paired with a complementary procedure. If the skin has been stretched around fat build-ups for too long,tummy tuck(abdominoplasty)is a good adjunct treatment to address the issue on excess or saggy skin.
