Why Would You Add A Zimmer MedizinSystems Chiller To Your Laser Practice?
If you own a Medical Spa, Laser Center, or Medical Practice providing your customers and clients with the highest level of service is crucial to growing your practice. Unfortunately laser treatments—whether it is laser tattoo removal, laser hair removal, laser resurfacing, or any other type of dermatologic or cosmetic laser procedure—can be frightening to some patients. The fear of pain or skin damage from the laser treatment can cause many prospective clients from using your service. Until now. With the Zimmer MedizinSystems Chiller you can finally provide patients with the security and comfort they need to feel safe and relaxed about visiting your practice. By converting the ambient air in the treatment room into sub-zero temperature air, a Zimmer MedizinSystems Cooler will give you the ability to dynamically cool your patient’s skin. Starting with the Cryo 5, Zimmer Medizin Chillers have been used by thousands of cosmetic laser practices to provide a wide range of benefits for their customers as well as their practice. Here are a few reasons why you should consider a Zimmer MedinzinSystems Chiller for your practice:
Increase Patient Satisfaction
Without any customers you will not generate any revenue—it’s that simple. Because laser treatments are still relatively new to many people, the risks that are associated with it (namely pain and skin damage) can prevent many customers from ever walking into your practice. With a Zimmer Cryo Mini or Zimmer Cryo 6 you will be able to address these issues and provide a better experience for your patients. Let’s look at two ways a Zimmer Chiller will help you improve patient satisfaction for your business:
Pain is one of the leading reasons why more people do not undergo any type of laser treatment, and rightfully so. In a study conducted in the early 2000s, a series of patients were given laser treatments and asked to determine how painful it felt. With a scale from 0 (no pain at all) to 3 (high pain), the average pain level experienced during a standard laser treatment session was a 2.41. With a Zimmer Chiller, cold air is applied to the area of skin where the laser treatment will be conducted to allow the skin to cool down for a numbing effect. By delivering -30C cold air to the treatment site instead of staying at room temperature, the average level of pain felt was a 1.06—more than a 50% reduction. By reducing the skin temperature to 17C (62.6F) pain was reduced further, all the way to a reported 0.88 on the scale. The amount of air being delivered can be adjusted according to the patient and operator demand. The Zimmer Cryo 6 and Zimmer Cryo Mini have a therapy fan consisting of 9 levels. The Zimmer Cryo 5 has a 6-speed therapy fan. The Cryo 6 can deliver -30c air from the chiller to the treatment site and the Cryo Mini can deliver around -10c air.
Prevent Thermal Damage
Reducing pain is very important for your clients and even prospects that are uncertain about the laser treatment due to sensitive skin, but Zimmer Chillers do more than lessen the pain felt during treatment. The cold air from a Zimmer Cryo Mini or Zimmer Cryo 6 can lessen the effects of thermal damage on the skin. In the same study, cooling the temperature of the skin to 17C (62.6F) from room temperature resulted in over a 66% reduction in purpura (the bruising of the skin caused by laser treatment).
Make Treatments Easier
The benefits of a laser cooling device are not only for the patients undergoing treatment, either. The Zimmer Chiller line of products also offer a wide range of benefits for operators as well to make the entire laser treatment process quicker and easier. The first thing you will notice when using one of these machines is that your patients will feel more comfortable allowing you to work confidently and efficiently knowing you do not have to worry about anyone pulling away due to pain. With the Zimmer Chiller unit there is also an optional articulating arm that gives you hands free control over the unit. Instead of having to move back and forth between the laser and the cooling device, the adjustable arm allows you to lock your Cryo Mini or Cryo 6 into place, freeing up your hands. Glass platforms are also added to the top of each device that can be used as a table for your tools during the treatment process. This keeps you organized so you can perform treatments as efficiently as possible.
Multiple Models To Suit Your Needs
The Zimmer Chiller portfolio is designed to give you the exact type of controls you need. There are two active models in production (the Zimmer Cryo 5 was taken out of production): the Zimmer Cryo Mini and the Zimmer Cryo 6. While both provide excellent cooling power, and a construction designed to last for years with minimal maintenance, there are a few slight differences:
Zimmer Cryo Mini – This chiller can produce air as cool as -10C. While it seems extremely cold (and it is),the mini is designed for shorter procedures. The Zimmer Cryo Mini has 9 different fan speeds that can be used to increase or decrease the flow of cold air from the machine, giving you complete customization for each patient.
Zimmer Cryo 6 – This unit is the new replacement to the Zimmer Cryo 5. The Zimmer Cryo 6 features 9 fan speeds, a LCD Display, Glass Tabletop, and a light-weight flexible hose allowing for maximum airflow. The main difference between the Cryo Mini and the Cryo 6 is cooling duration. Aforementioned, the Cryo Mini is ideal for treatments that are short in duration, roughly 30 minutes, while the Cryo 6 has all-day cooling capability. Air temperatures of the Six are chilled down to -30C, and this chilled air can be used to cool the epidermis continuously throughout a laser treatment or injection.
