TAMPA BAY, FL--(Marketwired - Jul 12, 2016) - ZELTIQ® Aesthetics, creator of the revolutionary body contouring system CoolSculpting®, has recently introduced its latest innovation -- the CoolAdvantage™ applicator. CoolAdvantage™ reportedly enhances the efficiency of CoolSculpting®, reducing treatment time and improving patient comfort without compromising the quality of results. As an experienced CoolSculpting® practitioner, Dr. Jeffrey Hunt of the Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay is enthusiastic about the sound clinical support for CoolAdvantage™ and has successfully incorporated the new technology into use at his practice.

Compared to traditional CoolSculpting®, the CoolAdvantage™ handpiece operates at a lower temperature and comes with three interchangeable, ergonomically-shaped applicator cups, which enables Dr. Hunt to deliver treatment in nearly half the time. In each 35-minute CoolAdvantage™ treatment session, he is able to destroy up to 23% of fat cells in treatment area(s). The speed of the CoolAdvantage™ handpiece is impressive, he says, and the fact the applicator cups were designed to conform to various contours of the body improves results and makes the process more comfortable for the patient. In clinical trials, patients are reporting up to 45% improvement in comfort compared to traditional CoolSculpting® treatments, explains Dr. Hunt.

Dr. Hunt believes CoolAdvantage™ is likely to encourage more men and women to explore CoolSculpting® for measurable reduction of stubborn pockets of fat along the abdomen, flanks (sides), inner thighs, and back. Now that CoolSculpting® can be performed in half the time, patients have the option to schedule treatments during their lunch-break if they choose, he adds.

For individuals who are considering CoolSculpting®, Dr. Hunt suggests scheduling a consultation with a trained CoolSculpting® practitioner and reviewing before-and-after photographs to get an idea of the results they may be able to achieve. He also advises that not all practices will have the option of rapid treatment with CoolAdvantage™, as the applicator is still quite new to the market.
