Can Cold Lasers make CoolSculpting Even Better?

Can Cold Lasers make CoolSculpting Even Better?

The CoolSculpting procedure is the world’s #1 non-invasive fat-reduction procedure, with over seven million treatments performed. CoolSculpting was initially FDA-cleared in 2010 for treatment of fat on flanks (sides) in 2010, and then approved for treatment of abdominal fat in 2012. Currently, CoolSculpting has nine FDA-clearances, including the recent addition of the submandibular area in 2018.

The appeal of CoolSculpting is that it is safe, effective, non-invasive, and has no post-procedure downtime. The latest CoolSculpting technology, the CoolAdvantage applicators, released in 2016, have made the CoolSculpting experience and results even better. The CoolAdvantage applicators treat even more fat, are more comfortable, and have much shorter treatment times than the previous technology.

Pura Vida Medical Spa has always strived to maximize the CoolSculpting experience. Pura Vida is the only medical spa in Southwest Florida to have three CoolSculpting devices, which saves our patients significant time on their treatment day. Pura Vida has the latest CoolSculpting technology, is the first medical spa in Southwest Florida to get it, and in fact is the first medical spa in Southwest Florida to offer an FDA-cleared treatment to non-surgically reduce upper arm fat.

Not only is Pura Vida the only medical spa in Southwest Florida to offer 3D body imaging, but Pura Vida offers it for free with each CoolSculpting treatment to definitively document your incredible transformation. The Diamond rating is the highest rating offered by CoolSculpting, and Pura Vida is the only medical spa in Southwest Florida to have received it. Florida Weekly magazine has selected Pura Vida Medical Spa as the Best Place for Body Sculpting every year since 2016. Pura Vida has also won multiple awards as the Best Medical Spa every year since 2016.

Although the CoolSculpting results are exceptional, and with a high patient satisfaction rating, could they get even better? What if CoolSculpting was combined with another FDA-cleared treatment that reduced circumferential fat? By using this combination therapy, a treatment area could be pretreated and the unwanted fat cells reduced in size, and then the CoolSculpting applicator could fit even more fat cells in it. This would give the CoolSculpting applicator more fat cells to destroy, and would be analogous to using a larger CoolSculpting applicator.

In 2018, Pura Vida has begun combining a low level laser therapy (LLLT) device, known as iLipo, with CoolSculpting as an option for patients. iLipo was FDA-cleared in 2012 for circumferential fat reduction, is noninvasive, has no associated pain or downtime, and has a short treatment time of 15 minutes/area. All of these factors make it an ideal pre-treatment enhancement. As always, we offer free 3D body imaging to document in detail your body sculpting transformation.
