Older CoolSculpting Machine Versus Newer CoolSculpting Machine: Which Is Better?

CoolSculpting is a revolutionary treatment for fat reduction and body contouring that uses the science of fat freezing to eliminate stubborn fat. With its unparalleled popularity in the cosmetic market, the makers of CoolSculpting only continue to upgrade its technology with the new line of applicators to improve treatment efficiency. 

So what exactly sets the new line of CoolSculpting machines apart from the older CoolSculpting devices? CoolSculpting Elite applicators are the latest and advanced fat freezing system that features several upgrades to help significantly reduce treatment time, target more body fat, and provide a more comfortable procedure for individuals. They also have a uniquely designed cup shape that comes in different sizes to be able to treat harder-to-reach areas with excess fat.

Know Your CoolSculpting Applicators: Old Vs New Technology

The original line of cryolipolysis machines by Zeltiq Aesthetics featured four types: the CoolCore, CoolCurve, CoolMax, and CoolFit. They were initially designed to contour and remove excess fat cells in larger body areas such as the abdomen, stomach, and thighs. However, the company recognized that more people wanted to get fat reduction treatments in other problem areas. 

Fast forward to recent years, new improvements and features have been added to the CoolSculpting technology and Zeltiq Aesthetics has released the most up-to-date applicators with CoolSculpting Elite. The latest line of CoolSculpting machines is not only redesigned for easier use of aesthetics providers but is also upgraded with an enhanced patient experience in mind. 

The biggest change in the new CoolSculpting Elite technology is that they have C-shaped cups compared to the U-shape of the old CoolSculpting device. In addition, providers now have more than one option for applicator sizes which makes it more convenient to treat unwanted fat in multiple areas. To know more about what makes CoolSculpting Elite the better option for fat freezing, here are its several advantages: 

1. New design for increased treatment efficiency 

The new C-shape designs are made to fit the natural curves of the body for a more comfortable treatment session. They also have an 18% larger cooling panel to cover broader areas and eliminate more fat bulges in a short amount of time. This provides significantly better CoolSculpting results, with 20% to 25% visible fat reduction in a single treatment compared to the old technology that can deliver 18% to 20% of fat reduction in one visit. 

2. Approved for the treatment of more areas in the body 

The latest machines of CoolSculpting are cleared by the FDA for safe and effective fat removal in nine body areas. This includes cosmetic treatments and body contouring in the inner thigh, outer thigh, lower abdomen and upper abdomen, flanks, under the buttocks, double chin and jawline area, bra fat, upper arm fat, and back fat. 

With the new technology, the cryolipolysis treatment of these areas can provide desirable results for fat deposit removal, sculpting of body shape, and improvement of moderate skin laxity. To add to that, the CoolSculpting Elite has more than one applicator so the provider can safely treat two different areas in one treatment.

3. Improved CoolSculpting experience 

The skin surface is exposed to intense cold during the CoolSculpting procedure itself. For this reason, you may feel temporary numbness or moderate pain as the machine applies controlled cooling to the targeted fatty tissue. However, the upgraded CoolSculpting device minimizes the discomfort for patients during the procedure with its adjustable temperature controls.  

It also freezes the treatment area more quickly for a faster CoolSculpting session. The entire cosmetic procedure can be done in 35 minutes to 75 minutes, and you can return to your normal activity with less post-treatment pain and zero downtime. 

4. Lesser treatments needed to provide the same optimal results 

With the enhanced design of the new treatment applicator options, it also means that CoolSculpting patients can see fat reduction results in as little as three sessions. Your provider can use two machines simultaneously to treat up to four areas with unwanted fat so you will only need fewer treatments. Initial results from CoolSculpting can be seen from three weeks after the treatment, and they will gradually improve as the body processes the frozen fat cells and eliminates them over time. 

Here are the most recent CoolSculpting applicators used by providers and practitioners today:  

  • CoolMax applicator - This applicator is designed specifically for noninvasive procedure for the reduction in larger areas of fat such as the flanks, love handles, and lower and upper abdomen. 
  • CoolMini applicator - This handpiece is used for targeting fat in the submental region or double chin. It also helps improve neck fat and provides subtle tightening effects for moderately loose skin in the jawline and chin area. 
  • CoolCore Advantage applicator - CoolCore is one of the popular applicators used for stubborn fat in the stomach as well as in the bra line or breast areas. 
  • CoolCurve+ Advantage  - CoolSculpting is not just for people with larger weight and greater body build. The CoolCurve applicator is made for individuals with slimmer figures and narrow frames but still has problematic fatty areas that they want to be treated. It has a unique cup design that can fit on more curved areas of the body. 
  • CoolSmooth Pro - Unlike other applicators that use suction technology, CoolSmooth Pro is the only device that can target non-pinchable types of body fat. It works well on fat bulges found on the outer thigh. 
  • CoolFit Advantage - This applicator is widely used for the effective treatment of excess fat in the inner thighs and abdomen
  • CoolPetite Advantage - CoolPetite is ideal for people who want to achieve better body shape with thin and slimmer upper arms. Its design is perfect for the pockets of fat found in the arms and helps firm up the skin for a more sculpted appearance.

CoolSculpting Treatment: Why It Works As Non Invasive Body Sculpting

Coolsculpting arms

CoolSculpting, or cryolipolysis, works as a fat removal and body contouring treatment because fat cells are said to be more sensitive and easier to destroy under cold temperatures. During the procedure, the CoolSculpting device delivers controlled cooling to the fat layer underneath the skin. 

This essentially freezes and crystallizes the fat deposit and the dead cells are naturally eliminated as waste from the body. As the treated fat cells exit the body, the layer of fat deposit shrinks which leaves you with a slimmer physique and a more contoured body shape. 

Over the years, CoolSculpting has become one of the best body sculpting alternatives to liposuction. Unlike a surgical procedure, it’s completely non-invasive and it comes with lesser risks and complications from the treatment. The common side effects of CoolSculpting are swelling, bruising, tenderness, itching, and temporary numbness which all lasts for only several days to weeks after the cosmetic procedure. 

Serious adverse effects such as paradoxical adipose hyperplasia after cryolipolysis (enlargement of fat tissue) are extremely rare, and the risks for negative reactions are little to none when you make sure to get the treatment from a certified CoolSculpting specialist. 

Reminders Before And After Getting CoolSculpting Fat Removal 

Coolsculpting Before And After Picture

While CoolSculpting is essentially not a plastic surgery procedure, there are still reminders that you need to know before undergoing the treatment. Here are some tips to help you get the best results from your fat freezing treatment: 

  • Find a reputable and experienced CoolSculpting provider - The procedure should be performed by a board-certified doctor with trained assistants who will facilitate and handle the CoolSculpting machine. They will also perform an initial consultation and assessment of your body fat so they can come up with an accurate CoolSculpting plan for you. 
  • Set realistic expectations and manage your goals - You need to remember that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss alternative and most of the time, its results may not be as dramatic as liposuction. You should also be willing to make some lifestyle changes such as keeping a healthy weight and diet to maintain the results of CoolSculpting. 
  • Skip blood thinner medications and supplements - Prior to your CoolSculpting appointment, your doctor will also remind you to stop taking any blood-thinning drugs to prevent serious prolonged bruising after the treatment. 
  • Keep hydrated and drink lots of water before and after the treatment - CoolSculpting patients may also experience dizziness and lightheadedness from the procedure so it’s important to bring a handy bottle of water so you can take sips before and after the treatment. 
  • Come to the clinic in comfortable and loose clothes - It’s best to wear loose-fitting clothes on the day of the treatment since it’s possible to have some swelling immediately after the procedure. You should also avoid tight and figure-hugging clothes for a few days to allow the treated area to heal and recover. 
  • Don’t take any anti-inflammatory medications - Anti-inflammatories may interfere with the elimination of fat cells from the body so you should avoid taking them after the treatment. To manage pain and discomfort, you can use a cold compress to relieve the swelling and bruising. It’s also safe to take antihistamines to manage itching from the procedure.

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "The treatment itself was not uncomfortable. Afterwords, I felt great. I didn't really notice anything for about 30 days. After day 30 until about a month later, I started noticing that my favorite jeans were not as tight anymore. I wasn't having to suck in to get them buttoned. And by that two month period after my CoolSculpting

  • "It's subtle at first, and then a month later you look and go, "Wow - It really did something!" It really moved the bar for me, and I'm feeling better about myself already. It feels so good to put on anything and know I look as good as I've ever looked. And I didn't say that or feel that when I was in my 20's, 30's, and 40's."
