In this video, Slim Studio’s CoolSculpting technician, Kristy, demonstrates how to use CoolSculpting to address asymmetry (unevenness) in the torso, with non-surgical body sculpting. She also describes indications for the use of different CoolSculpting applicators.
Hi, I’m Kristy, a certified CoolSculpting technician at Atlanta's leading Body Sculpting Provider, Slim Studio. Today we’re going to be
CoolSculpting a patient who has scoliosis, which has caused enhanced asymmetry, which means
that she is physically uneven. Most people don’t realize that we’re ALL asymmetric; her right
side is not a mirror image of her left side. This is a situation where CoolSculpting can be
very helpful, we can sculpt her body to physically and visually balance out the sides.
On her left side, there is not a lot of pinchable subcutaneous fat, but on the right side
there is definitely more pinchable fat. We will therefore treat her right side only. We chose
the Petite applicator to fit her small size.
We have four different applicator sizes; we have a Mini applicator which is typically used on
the chin and on the bra or “Cami” fat area; we have the Petite applicator, which is used for a
smaller torso. We also have the standard size Advantage applicator, and then we have the Max
applicator, which is used for a larger area.
So always remember … All Fat Is Not Equal!
The first step in CoolSculpting is to mark the patient for the appropriate applicator. This
shows us exactly where to place the applicator. In addition to treating her single flank on
the right side, we also treat the patient’s abdomen. Normally we can place the applicators in
a diamond shape around the navel, or we can place the applicators vertically on either side of
the navel. We chose to use our CoolSmooth applicator on this patient, she is the perfect
candidate and it is the perfect fit for her to use one single applicator on the abdomen.
I’ve marked her abdomen using the CoolSmooth template. I prepped the area and now we’re ready
for placement of the applicator. Now I have the perfect target to place the applicators!
