What is Zeltiq Cool Sculpting?

Filed under: Liposuction,Uncategorized — Dr. Greenwald @ 1:09 pm

The Zeltiq CoolSculpting system was recently named “Best of Non-Invasive Fat Reduction” in the American Health and Beauty Readers’ Choice Awards. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body slimming treatment based on the premise that fat cells are vulnerable to cold temperatures. It essentially freezes fat away. Patients love CoolSculpting because it is a simple outpatient procedure that does not require needles, incisions or anesthesia. And the results are significant – patients lose an average of 20 percent of fat in the treated area(s), and results are visible after about three weeks.

Approved by the FDA in 2010, CoolSculpting treatment uses a cooling suction device that drops the targeted fat cells to a degree just above freezing. The cells crystallize and the body then flushes them away through the natural detoxification process. CoolSculpting is often used on the abdomen, back, buttocks, thighs and hips.

The CoolSculpting Procedure

During CoolSculpting treatment, the patient sits or lies down on the treatment table. They can relax with a book, work on a laptop or nap during the procedure. The CoolSculpting handpiece is applied to the treatment area and the skin is pressed between two cooling panels; the patient will feel some pressure and a cooling sensation, which quickly dissipates. The treatment lasts about an hour, and several sessions may be recommended for optimal results.

Some patients report redness, minor bruising, tingling or numbness but this is temporary. The results continue to improve over the next two to six months.
