CoolSculpting by Zeltiq is an FDA-approved non-surgical fat reduction device. It uses a process called Cryolipolysis, or Cool Sculpting, which eliminates fat cells using precisely controlled cooling.
Clinical studies of CoolSculpting report an average fat loss of 20 to 30-percent in each treated area. It is not a treatment for obesity; Zeltiq is designed only for spot treatment on unwanted areas like love handles, back fat, bra rolls, and stomach rolls.
A typical CoolSculpting session lasts 60 minutes.
During the procedure your doctor will gently pinch the fatty area to be treated between the CoolSculpting applicator arms. The applicator then delivers a targeted cooling action to the fat.
