CoolSculpting Applicator: Large v Small

CoolSculpting Applicator: Large v Small


Zeltiq, the makers of CoolSculpting have come a long ways since first introducing their CoolSculpting machine to the US markets in 2010. With its first FDA clearance, Zeltiq introduced a revolutionary fat reduction treatment indicated for reducing stubborn fat deposits from the flanks, a notorious problem area comonly referred to as love handles.

Since then, Zeltiq has lead the fat reduction industry in innovative additions to their CoolSculpting machines, including various sizes of applicators to treat nearly any area of the body that is prone to collect stubborn fat. Zeltiq also invented an applicator with a flat panel, requiring no suction, for reducing “non pinch-able” fat, such as reducing fat from the outer thighs.

Coolsculpting has many different sized applicators to match different sized treatment areas and different areas of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, arms, and even neck areas. During your complimentary consultation with a CoolSculpting NYC specialist from SKINNEY Medspa, we will discuss the various applicators and evaluate which applicators will be best for your body dimensions and outcome desires.

Most CoolSculpting applicators can be classified into two sizes. Large and small.

Typical treatment areas using the Large CoolSculpting Applicator:

Large CoolSculpting applicators are especially effective at treating long areas of the lower body, like the sides of your hips or flank area. The large applicators are also useful on the abdomen. More than one applicator may be used when treating a single area. For example, we may use one or two large applicators when reducing fat from the upper stomach region, and two large applicators on a lower stomach region. However, for some patients, only one large applicator may be needed for optimal results. Related Article: Reducing Belly Fat with Cool Sculpting >>

Typical Treatment areas using the Small CoolSculpting Applicator:

The Small applicator is our most popular applicator because it can be used in several places on your upper and lower body.

The size of applicator (large or small) and the number of applicators used per treatment area really depends on the dimensions and outcome desires of the patient.

Reducing Belly Fat 

When reducing belly fat using CoolSculpting, typically patients receive a coolsculpting treatment using two small applicators. To treat the entire abdomen, we would use four small applicators. Two on your upper stomach and two applicators on your lower stomach.

Reducing Back Fat, Bra Fat, and Love handles

Using the small applicators, we are also able to treat the back & bra area, with one applicator per side and the love handle area, which is also one applicator per side.

Inner Thigh Fat Reduction with small applicators

Inner thighs are another popular area to treat inner thigh fat using two small applicators, one applicator per leg. To properly treat the upper arms, we comonly use one applicator per arm, and in some cases two applicators per arm. We can also treat under the buttocks (banana roll) using one small applicator per leg.

Treatments using the smallest CoolSculpting Applicator, the CoolMini

The CoolMini is the smallest Cool Sculpting applicator. It is perfect for reducing fat from small areas.

Double Chin Fat Reduction with the CoolMini

The CoolMini is designed specifically to treat submental fat, or the fat found under the chin. Submental fat is typically genetic and worsens with age. Many men and women, regardless of how lean or heavy the rest of their body is struggle with double chins and are not happy with their facial profile. This is a huge factor in why the CoolMini double chin reduction treatment is so popular.

Cool Sculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment with no downtime.* Many people who want to reduce their double chin find CoolSculpting the perfect alternative to Kybella, which injects fat dissolving substances into submental fat and requires downtime to recover. Related Article: Kybella v CoolSculpting Double Chin Reduction >>

Wondering How to Get Rid of Bra Bulge? Reducing Arm Pit Fat with CoolSculpting

Another popular area we treat using the CoolMini is the area in between your underarm and bra area. Also known as bra bulge, this is a comon area where stubborn fat tends to deposit. When reducing arm pit fat with CoolSculpting, we would use one CoolMini applicator per arm. We also see a great reduction of fat above the knees using the CoolMini applicator. When reducing knee fat, we comonly use 2  mini applicators, one per leg.
