DualSculpting – 2 Coolsculpting Applicators: Eliminating Fat in Less Time
CoolSculpting® is a popular, non-invasive way to remove fat in stubborn areas such as the muffin top, bra bulges, love handles and belly. In most cases, if a patient undergoes a CoolSculpting procedure on one side of the body, he/she will also have it in the same area on the other side for a balanced look. To lessen the already minimal time required to perform CoolSculpting, South Florida-based Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jacob D. Steiger, M.D. is one of very few physicians who utilizes two CoolSculpting applicators. This is called Dualsculpting.
Think about it – a patient undergoing CoolSculpting for one hip roll is likely to have the procedure on the other hip roll. With two CoolSculpting applicators, the patient can have the treatment on both sides in half the time. Typically, a dual applicator hip roll procedure will last only approximately one hour. Plus, there’s no downtime after the procedure. Having two Coolsculpting machines allows Dr. Steger to perform Coolsculpting safely, effectively and more efficiently in his Boca Raton office. Patients are happier because the get the best treatment in half the time with Dualsculpting
With dual applicators, patients can even enjoy the CoolSculpting procedure during their lunch breaks while relaxing and reading a book, watching a movie, or using their phone or laptop.
In today’s fast-paced world, patients want treatments that are safe and quick, and that don’t require any recovery time. CoolSculpting provides all of these features. The non-invasive, targeted cooling procedure kills fat cells underneath the skin in the desired area, and freezes them until they are eliminated. Once crystallized, these cells die and are naturally eliminated from the body through the lymphatic drainage system.
During Dualsculpting (CoolSculpting with dual applicators), simple skin protecting gel pads are applied to the skin in the two areas. The applicators are placed over the areas, cooling the fat cells to destroy them. The only pain patients might feel is a pinching sensation.
The procedure doesn’t affect healthy skin cells. The temperature required to destroy fat cells is warmer than what would result in damage to skin, muscle and nerves. CoolSculpting doesn’t burn, shatter or extract any cells. There are no knives, suction hoses, needles or scars. Developed by Harvard scientists, CoolSculpting is cleared by the FDA and is a patented procedure.
It takes 1-3 months for patients to fully feel the effects of CoolSculpting, while the body eliminates the fat cells. Most patients begin noticing about 1 to two months after the procedure, but improvement can continue after three months. Most patients need only one treatment, but repeat treatments can be performed after three months. The great news: If patients continue a healthy diet and exercise habits, they should enjoy longtime results from CoolSculpting.
It’s very important that an experienced, trained and board certified physician, such as Dr. Steiger, performs the CoolSculpting procedure. It can be done in the comfort of a physician’s office. While CoolSculpting is a great way to eliminate fat, it’s not for everyone. Patients must consult with a qualified physician to determine if liposuction or surgery may be a better option for them.
