With its place as a groundbreaking nonsurgical fat reduction treatment well-established, CoolSculpting continues to develop next-generation technology with the introduction of CoolSculpting Elite. Our med spa in Houston is among the first to offer CoolSculpting Elite, which can be combined with Z-Wave technology to enhance results.
Before describing the benefits of CoolScultping Elite and Z-Wave technology, it’s important to briefly review how CoolSculpting reduces fat. The treatment delivers controlled cooling using applicators attached to the treatment areas. Fat cells begin dying at temperatures that aren’t cold enough to damage the skin’s surface or surrounding tissue.
The cells die gradually and are naturally removed through the body’s lymphatic system. Z-Wave technology, as we explain later, enhances this process. You can see the potential results for yourself in our gallery of CoolSculpting before-and-after photos.
What Is CoolSculpting Elite?
Harnessing CoolSculpting’s proven process of freezing and eliminating treated fat cells, CoolSculpting Elite gives our specialists the ability to customize each patient’s treatment plan further. Using Elite’s new, dual C-shaped applicators, we can eliminate up to 2 times more fat during a treatment session than with the original CoolSculpting device. The applicators are designed in 7 different shapes and sizes to target specific areas, including the:
- Bra fat
- Back fat
- “Banana rolls” beneath the buttocks
- Upper arms
- Below the chin and jaws
What Is Z-Wave Technology?
As a standalone procedure, Z-Wave reduces the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks, but it is especially effective when combined with CoolSculpting. Following a CoolSculpting procedure, the clump of dead fat cells needs to be broken down. This is often accomplished with manual massage. Z-Wave uses radial pulse technology to enhance this step by breaking up the fat cells more uniformly and promoting greater fat reduction.
Many patients also believe Z-Wave is more comfortable than manual massage after a CoolSculpting procedure. When your provider presses the handheld device against the treatment area, patients report feeling a tingling sensation similar to the experience of putting cold hands under hot water. That’s because the treatment area is numb, and Z-Wave increases blood flow to the area.
The benefits of Z-Wave following CoolSculpting include:
- Increasing lymphatic drainage
- Speeding up the body’s metabolism
- Helping break down the fat cells
- Increasing blood circulation
- Providing visible, long-lasting results
We’ve also recently added the EMSCULPT® NEO machine to our menu of body contouring treatments. NEO is the first and only non-invasive body shaping procedure that both reduces fat and builds muscle during a single 30-minute treatment session. It builds on the technology used by EMSCULPT, simultaneously emitting both radiofrequency and high-intensity electromagnetic energies.
The addition of CoolSculpting Elite and EMSCULPT NEO reinforces the wide-ranging menu of body contouring procedures available at Ovation Med Spa and why many women and men consider us the best med spa in the Houston area.
