What is CoolSculpting?
The CoolSculpting® procedure is a breakthrough procedure that safely and effectively eliminates fat without the cost, downtime and risk associated with surgery. Unlike most other methods of fat reduction that use heat, the CoolSculpting procedure cools fat cells to temperatures that trigger their natural death. Those cells are then eliminated naturally by the body over the following weeks and months. During the procedure, a non-surgical applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the treatment area to selectively target treated fat cells, leaving surrounding tissue such as the skin unaffected.
The CoolSculpting procedure results in an undeniable reduction of fat in the treated area and patients can start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months. Every patient is unique, which is why ZELTIQ recommends a customized procedure plan as part of the initial physician consultation. After the initial treatment is complete, patients can attain further reductions with additional treatments, resulting in even more fat loss.
