The new C-shaped applicators are designed to complement the body’s natural curves for improved fit and patient comfort, while treating twice the fat.
Allergan Aesthetics has expanded its CoolSculpting body contouring portfolio with the release of the CoolSculpting Elite. The company’s next generation fat reduction system features applicators designed to complement the body’s natural curves. According to the company, CoolSculpting Elite is manufactured to harness the proven CoolSculpting technology to target, freeze, and eliminate treated fat cells. The device is FDA cleared to treat visible fat bulges in nine areas of the body including the thigh, abdomen, and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), upper arm, and the submental and submandibular areas.
Based on the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery consumer survey on cosmetic dermatologic procedures reported in 2018, Carrie Strom, senior vice president, AbbVie, and president, global Allergan Aesthetics commented: “The number one aesthetic concern for consumers is excess body fat. CoolSculpting has been an industry-leader, creating the market for non-invasive fat reduction over 10 years ago. Now CoolSculpting Elite builds on that heritage with a completely re-invented next-generation technology that delivers results. We understand the challenges of today’s world and as people prepare to go from being online to spending more time in person, CoolSculpting Elite can help them address their bothersome fat.”
CoolSculpting Elite will launch with a new applicator collection, which includes seven different shapes and sizes. The new C-shaped applicators are designed to complement the body’s natural curves for improved fit and comfort during initial tissue draw and features up to an 18% larger cooling area as compared to the previous generation CoolSculpting applicators. The clinical significance of these data has not been established.
“CoolSculpting is a critical part of my business and a device I’ve relied on to help my patients achieve their desired outcome of reducing stubborn fat.” said Sabrina Fabi, MD, board certified dermatologist and associate research director at Cosmetic Laser Surgery in San Diego, Calif. “The dual applicators allow us to treat two areas at the same time, safely freezing twice the fat compared to using a single CoolSculpting applicator, which helps us save on time. With the Elite applicator collection we are able to treat a wide range of body areas and personalize each patient’s treatment plan.”
