When new technologies are created, there’s always a race to get them onto the market and reach their target consumer. There’s a big advertising push and often it’s first in, best dressed for success. A few years ago, cryolipolysis (fat freezing) hit the market in the form of a device called CoolSculpting by Zeltiq. It’s been one of the most popular new non-invasive treatments to get rid of fat. Last year Cryomed released the CoolTech – their device to freeze fat, and the results and pricing seem to be shaking up the fat-freezing market. So we thought we’d take this opportunity to answer our community question about CoolTech VS CoolSculpt – what you might want to know. Without bombarding the market with promotional material and “raving” patients, CoolTech have let their results speak for themselves. They seem to have set themselves up as a ‘lesser cost plus more area’ per treatment for fat freezing. We say move over CoolSculpting, CoolTech is on the rise.
CoolTech can treat the two areas with the 1 device
Consumers and practitioners are seeing a clear division when it comes to results. With two handpieces, CoolTech can treat twice the area CoolSculpt does in the same amount of time, meaning less treatment time and a huge increased convenience for patients. A huge plus.
Perhaps one of the most attractive things we like about CoolTech is the extremely competitive pricing of the treatments. Coolsculpting devices have increased in price significantly since they first came onto the market in 2013, and the consumables have increased over 40% in the past 2 years, meaning clinics have had to pass on these increased costs to consumers or accept running the machines at a loss. CoolTech, on the other hand, have kept their device and consumable costs at a much more manageable level, meaning both clinics and the patient win when it comes to the cost of each treatment.
Hunter Plastic Surgery in Newcastle is leading the way in Australia with the number of CoolSculpting treatments they have performed. This is a rockin’ team! Headed by Plastic Surgeon Dr Nicholas Moncrieff, Hunter Plastic Surgery has performed over 2000 CoolSculpting treatments in just over 2 years that they have had the device in their practice. However, Practice Director, Amber Moncrieff has expressed concerned by the increasing costs associated with CoolSculpting. She said, “We still love the outcomes for patients from CoolSculpting, but in order to also offer the most competitive price possible and keep investing in our clinic and expert team, we have been looking into other options.” With Cooltech emerging as the more competitive price choice for both consumers and clinics she says, “What we like about Cooltech is that it already has a track record of a million treatments in Europe and our early results are very promising.” We are hearing the same thing from other plastic surgeons, practitioners and clinics as well.
Cryomed are a well-respected aesthetics technology company with some of the most effective and widely used beauty treatments and devices on the market. They know their stuff. They are focussed on providing the most effective results for consumers, and ensure the clinics and practitioners using their devices are some of the most highly trained in the industry. Their latest device, CoolTech, is no different. Looks like CoolTech may be emerging as the winner when it comes to patient experience, affordability and overall product.
