New Applicator to Freeze Fat Lose Tough, Non-Pinchable Inches

CoolSmooth is a new applicator for CoolSculpting technology which allows previously difficult areas, such as the outer thigh, to be treated more effectively.

Zeltiq has announced a new CoolSculpting applicator that increases the areas that can be treated with this nonsurgical, noninvasive fat removal technique. The new applicator, called CoolSmooth, is now available at Amerejuve clinics. In the past, CoolSculpting was most effective on areas with pinchable fat. The original applicators pull in skin and unwanted fat, and are then able to treat it. These applicators weren’t as effective on fat that wasn’t pinchable, which for some includes fat on the outer thigh. Now, those trouble spots can be treated even more effectively with the new CoolSmooth applicator. The technology remains the same as original CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting uses cold to destroy fat cells, which are more susceptible to cold temperatures than other types of cells. By targeting fat cells specifically, CoolSculpting leaves the surrounding tissue healthy, and only fat cells are destroyed. Over time, the fat cells are purged naturally by the body, removing


NCI: Detect Breast Cancer Early

For Breast Cancer Awareness Month, experts tout early detection. The Susan G. Komen Foundation encourages individuals to “know your normal” to increase the chances of early detection. This makes it easier to detect changes in the breast such as pain, lumps, change in shape, or discharge. The National Cancer Institute recommends yearly mammograms for women over 40. Studies indicate that mammograms decrease breast cancer deaths in women ages 40 to 74, especially women older than 50. A mammogram is an X-ray of the

breast that can help detect abnormalities. Women who have breast implants should inform their physician or technician before the mammogram so they can adjust their scanning techniques. Possible drawbacks of yearly mammograms include false-positive results, false-negative results, and exposure to radiation. However, the National Cancer Institute said the benefits outweigh possible drawbacks. Mammograms do not significantly improve survival rates for women under the age of 40.
