CoolSculpting® by Zeltiq is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The CoolSculpting device is used for fat reduction in just about any area of the body where there are unwanted pockets of fat. Most commonly, this non-invasive treatment is sought out to address those pesky love handles that nobody really loves and that double chin that cannot be exercised off. It’s no surprise that CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure quickly became the world’s #1 non-surgical fat reduction procedure since its launch in 2010. Examples of areas that the CoolSculpting device can treat include:
- under the chin
- lower and upper abdomen
- love handles
- bra rolls
- inner and outer thighs
- banana rolls
CoolSculpting can help both women and men get rid of those stubborn fat bulges for good. This FDA-cleared procedure uses controlled cooling (also known as Cryolipolysis) to drop the temperature of the tissue down to where fat cells die and the body then eliminates the cells in the following weeks. Once your body metabolizes the dead fat cells, they are gone for good. The adult human body cannot reproduce new fat cells. But one needs to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine to keep the results because untreated fat cells could still grow.
CoolSculpting isn’t for everybody. There’s a difference between freezing fat away and losing weight. Unlike weight-loss surgery (e.g., gastric bypass), the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight-loss solution for people who are obese. Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of without surgery.
A medical evaluation must be performed to be cleared for this treatment. To learn whether you are a candidate, schedule your CoolSculpting consultation today!
