As Southwest Florida’s CoolSculpting leader, Pura Vida Medical Spa has always offered our CoolSculpting patients innovative ways to enhance both the results as well as the experience.
This includes being the first medical spa in southwest Florida to offer a noninvasive FDA-cleared treatment to reduce upper arm fat, the first to offer 3D body imaging to measure the body sculpting transformation, the first and only triple-sculpting provider, the first and only Diamond-rated CoolSculpting provider, and the first and only to offer iLipo low level laser therapy (LLLT) treatments prior to CoolSculpting.
Pura Vida Medical Spa now is the first CoolSculpting provider in southwest Florida to offer a topical medical-grade product that has been shown to enhance CoolSculpting results.
Alastin Skincare’s TransFORM Body Treatment was studied in a double-blind, randomized, controlled trial studying it’s use after CoolSculpting procedures. In the study, after both upper extremities underwent the CoolSculpting procedure (using the CoolAdvantage Petite Applicator), one arm was randomized to receive the study drug (TransFORM Body Treatment) twice daily, and the other arm received Cetaphil.
The study was blinded to both investigators and patients by labeling the tubes “A” and “B”. Participants were followed up five times since initiation of the study. 3D volume analysis was used to measure fat volume reduction in the study participants, and pixel analysis was used to measure skin laxity. The study revealed that at 24 weeks of follow up, 83% of study participants had statistically significant greater improvement in fat reduction in the TransFORM-treated arm.
This improvement was evident as early as the first week of the study, and skin laxity was noted to also have improved. The limitations to the study included a small sample size of eleven participants, and the study was funded by the makers of the control drug (Alastin Skincare).
The ability of the TransFORM Body Treatment to achieve these impressive results is through it’s TriHex formulation that stimulates lipid resorption by shrinking lipid droplets that make it easier for the body’s macrophages to consume and digest them.
Additionally, TransFORM also stimulates collagen and elastin production, which improves skin tone. The TransFORM’s active ingredients are believed to enter the subcutaneous fat through the hair follicles.
These study results are exciting in that permanent fat loss (as well as skin tone) can be optimized using only noninvasive, and well tolerated, combinations of treatments. In the Spring of 2019, Pura Vida Medical Spa has begun offering TransFORM Body Treatments to our CoolSculpting patients. Thus far, the feedback has been positive regarding the effectiveness and tolerability of the TransFORM.
