The Answer to Stubborn Arm Fat
The brand new CoolAdvantage Petite, exclusively at Marina Medspa is CoolSculpting’s newest treatment applicator.
It is the smallest, fastest, and most advanced technology that allows for non-invasive reduction of fat in the upper arms and other difficult small patches of fat.* Small areas of the body, including the upper arms, bra roll, inner thighs, and flanks are some of the most challenging areas to treat.
They have small delicate structures, awkward shapes, and roundness that make applying past technologies troublesome. Now, the Petite with its unique shape and small size will fit any arm length or small fold area with the ability to tailor specifically to individual patients. Its shallowness prevents discomfort more than any other applicator. The CoolAdvantage Petite also allows for much shorter treatments in as little as 30 minutes! *Individual results may vary.
CoolSculpting is a leading non-invasive fat reduction procedure that requires no downtime or incisions. CoolSculpting technology uses cryolipolysis to destroy unwanted fat cells in areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. As fat cells are especially sensitive to cold in comparison to those of surrounding tissues, cryolipolysis allows for the effective treatment of excess fat without causing damage to neighboring cells.
CoolSculpting is FDA-approved for fat reduction in nine areas of the body including the thighs, abdomen, flank, bra fat, back fat, and the areas just below the buttocks, chin, and jawline. CoolSculpting has developed an extensive collection of specialized applicators to provide patients with the most personalized treatment and most beautiful contours to date. CoolAdvantage Petite is the perfect addition to the CoolSculpting Beverly Hills family, allowing for increased precision and speed.
When you arrive at Marina Medspa for your CoolSculpting Los Angeles treatment, you will be welcomed into a state-of-the-art treatment room where you will be allowed to rest comfortably.
A gel pack will be placed on the treatment area or areas, and cryolipolysis (or fat freezing) will begin. Some patients may experience some sensations of tugging, pulling, pinching, or extreme cold during treatment, though these sensations will subside as the treatment area becomes numb.
Treatment is generally easily tolerated, and most patients can enjoy their favorite book, tend to emails, scroll social media, or listen to a podcast or music comfortably while our specialist guides the applicator around the target area. With CoolAdvantage Petite, treatment may take as little as 30 minutes! Once your treatment is complete, you will be able to return to work or other regular activities immediately!
Cryolipolysis allows the body to process and eliminate dead fat cells naturally over time. The full process takes about 6 months. While some improvement in treatment areas may be visible within the first few weeks following treatment, patients should expect to see full results approximately 12 weeks after treatment.
Depending on the amount of fat present and patient goals, some patients may require more than one treatment to reach desired results. Each treatment should be spaced at least 4 to 6 weeks apart.
Recovery following all CoolSculpting procedures is extremely minimal. There is absolutely no downtime, no incision or wound which requires tending, and no healing time involved. Some patients may experience minor side effects following treatment, but these are mild and can be expected to resolve without intervention within a couple of weeks.
Marina Medspa is proud to offer this exclusive, state-of-the-art treatment to our patients. Schedule your consultation to discuss your candidacy for Beverly Hills CoolAdvantage Petite cryolipolysis, and how Marina Medspa can help you achieve your beauty goals.
There is very little preparation required before CoolSculpting. Some patients may be encouraged to avoid or temporarily discontinue medications or supplements which may thin the blood, including ibuprofen, aspirin, ginger, turmeric, fish oil, and blood thinners before treatment. Failure to do so may increase bruising.
Fat cells throughout the body will continue to swell naturally with weight gain. However, since a portion of fat cells in treated areas will have been eliminated, patients can expect to retain some of the shape created with CoolSculpting in cases of minimal or moderate weight gain.
While this procedure effectively eliminates excess fat, it does not tighten the skin in treatment areas. Depending on the severity of skin laxity, patients with significant excess skin may consider surgical or non-surgical skin tightening treatments. CoolSculpting is commonly performed in combination with other non-surgical treatments.
CoolSculpting is an ideal treatment option for healthy adults of all skin types and tones who have noticed pockets of fat that do not respond to a healthy diet and exercise. Patients’ weight should be stable, as significant weight change after treatment may affect results. Patients who have a low percentage of overall body fat but struggle with pockets of fat in traditionally hard-to-treat areas such as under the chin, the upper arms, the inside of the thighs, the flanks, or the area commonly referred to as the “bra roll” may achieve optimal results with CoolAdvantage Petite.
Fat cells cannot be reproduced. Therefore, all fat cells treated with cryolipolysis are destroyed permanently. The remaining fat cells in treated areas will continue to shrink and expand normally with weight change, along with the rest of the fat cells within the body. CoolSculpting results can be maintained with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
CoolSculpting has minimal side effects as it is non-surgical and does not involve the use of chemical solutions. Some minor side effects may occur as a result of CoolSculpting, but these issues are generally mild and subside without the need for medical treatment. During treatment, some patients experience sensations of pulling, tugging, pinching, extreme cold, or numbness in the target area. Soon after treatment, patients may experience the onset of pain, stinging, or aching in the treatment area. These conditions may last 3 to 11 days. Redness, bruising, swelling, and increased sensitivity may exist in the treatment area for 2 to 3 weeks. All of these conditions are considered normal and can be expected to resolve on their own.A very rare but serious condition called paradoxical adipose hyperplasia may occur. This side effect involves the enlargement of fat cells in the treatment area, and can only be corrected through surgery. While this side effect is cosmetically undesirable, it does not pose any health risk.
Many patients can achieve their desired results with just one CoolSculpting treatment. However, others may require 2 to 3 treatments depending on the amount of fat in the treatment area. These treatments should be spaced at least 4 to 6 weeks apart.
