We’re excited to share that the FDA has just announced its clearance of an even cooler way to reduce stubborn, unwanted fat: the CoolSculpting® procedure can now be performed at lower temperatures, enabling shorter treatment times. Patients will get the same safe, effective results faster — boosting your efficiency, profitability, and patient satisfaction.In the second quarter of 2015, ZELTIQ Aesthetics will introduce CoolSmooth PRO, the first applicator to take advantage of these new treatment parameters. CoolSmooth PRO will be a second-generation surface applicator designed to treat areas of “non-pinchable” fat, such as on the outer thighs. The new treatment parameters will also enable operators to perform the CoolSmooth procedure in nearly half the time. The CoolSmooth PRO system will also include an enhanced strapping mechanism that provides increased conformity at the treatment site, while also improving ease of use and patient comfort.To provide our current CoolSmooth customers access to this new technology, ZELTIQ plans to offer an exchange program at a minimal cost to facilitate an easy upgrade of all existing CoolSmooth applicators in practices around the world. Additionally, ZELTIQ has also established a program to allow for the return and replacement of all unused CoolSmooth cycles with an equivalent number of CoolSmooth PRO cycles.

The CoolSmooth applicator is ideal for treating the saddle-bag areas of the outer thighs.
“CoolSculpting® is a very popular procedure to reduce unwanted fat,” stated Dr. Burton Sundin, a board-certified plastic surgeon and co-founder, along with his brother Dr. Reps Burton, of Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery and MBody Modern Body Contouring and Laser Center. “More and more people are realizing how effective Coolsculpting is for fat reduction. Patients also like that CoolSculpting has no downtime and minimal discomfort. With the new CoolSmooth hand piece, we’ll be able to treat even more areas of unwanted fat without surgery.”
CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to reduce fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is FDA-approved for non-invasive fat reduction of the abdomen and flanks, but has been used in other areas of the body with great success. In recent clinical studies of the CoolSmooth applicator 86% of patients noticed visible fat reduction after just one treatment and 89% would recommend the CoolSculpting procedure to a friend.
“We are extremely excited to be among the first CoolSculpting centers to be offering fat freezing treatments using the new CoolSmooth applicator,” stated Dr. Sundin. “Our patients have been equally excited.”
