Ethos Spa Centers with locations in Summit and Englewood, New Jersey, has added the CoolFit applicator to their CoolSculpting system, which is FDA approved. This is a benefit to their patients seeking treatments in hard to reach areas like upper arms and thighs.
Dr. Hardik Soni, Medical Director for Ethos Spa Centers says, “Each patient can get a truly personalized program of fat removal that targets their unique body concerns. We are also able to target areas of fat that were once only treatable with invasive options, such as liposuction or surgical removal of fat.”
CoolFit causes stubborn fat cells to undergo controlled apoptosis (cell death) with no affect to the surrounding skin tissue. Slight discomfort may be experienced upon initial application as intense cooling from the CoolFit process works its way into the fat cells, but the discomfort should diminish within 15 minutes after treatment starts.
The ideal candidate for CoolSculpting and CoolFit treatments are non-smokers with problematic areas of fat bulges. The procedure takes at least an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated. Patients usually begin seeing results in as early as three weeks. CoolSculpting is able to remove fat, on average, at a rate of 20 percent per procedure.
