You’ve most likely heard of CoolSculpting and its excellent, fat-reducing results, but it’s important to know that you’ve got options when looking at your treatment package. CoolSculpting comes with a selection of applicators for different treatment areas to best fit your body and effectively reduce fatty deposits. Here are some things to know about some of the most popular applicators that Dr. Prysi offers.
This small applicator uses gentle suction to treat difficult-to-reach areas like wings of fat on the upper arms, knees, and backs of the thighs. It can be a preferred option for bra fat and banana rolls, and requires only a half hour of treatment time.
This option focuses on volume reduction rather than contouring, as it can effectively treat large areas like the stomach and lower abdomen. It can often be a first step in CoolSculpting treatment, after which other, smaller applicators are used to further define contours.
This applicator can be used on many different areas like the inner thighs to create a thigh gap and reduce ‘chub rub’. The CoolAdvantage™ requires a half-hour session and uses gentle suction to better treat fatty pockets in the thighs and other areas.
This applicator doesn’t require suction, but does come with the longest treatment session because of its ability to treat fat that is un-pinchable. This usually includes the outer thighs or abdomen, and this applicator is flexible enough to accommodate your body’s natural contours. Treatment sessions with this area usually last up to 75 minutes.
