Aspen, Colo. – At the most recent edition of The Cosmetic Bootcamp (CBC), attendees learned about technological advances that have increased patient comfort and the versatility of CoolSculpting.
In clinical trials, said Vic Narurkar, M.D., the latest CoolSculpting applicator, the CoolMini, resulted in safe submental treatments, appreciable fat reductions and very high patient satisfaction. “The big pearl here is that for very bulky submental fat, start with the CoolMini because there’s a lot less swelling than with an injectable.” CoolMini is also well-suited for knee bulges, he said. “We’ve now started using CoolMini for larger areas, followed by Kybella to fine-tune.”
CoolAdvantage was developed to improve the patient experience, Dr. Narurkar said. It offers a 35-minute treatment time, and treats more tissue with greater comfort than the original applicator – without compromising results, he said. After treatment, “The biggest difference we’ve seen with the CoolAdvantage is a reduction in bruising and pain.”
The CoolAdvantage Petite addresses the arms, which represent the second most-requested treatment area by women seeking noninvasive fat reduction. In a Phase 3 study, ultrasound measurements showed that the device provided a mean 3.2 mm reduction in arm circumference.
Dr. Narurkar is founder and director of the Bay Area Laser Institute, chairman of dermatology at California Pacific Medical Center, San Francisco, and a CBC cofounder and director.
