Cool Sculpting by Zeltiq

Zeltiq-Coolsculpting-For Fat loss and Body contouring. ZELTIQ™ is an innovative non-invasive technology for the reduction of unwanted fat tissue through lipolysis. The ZELTIQ system utilizes a patented method called CryolipolysisTM designed to freeze fat cells without injury to the skin or other tissue that results from more invasive procedures such as liposuction. The frozen fat cells break down and removed through the natural metabolic process of the body. This non-surgical approach may be most suitable for patients who only need minimal fat reduction, as well as for those who are unwilling or hesitant to undergo surgery for fat removal. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-invasive, so the patient can return to normal activities immediately.

Zeltiq is a device designed to perform completely non-invasive removal of fat. Ideal candidates are persons in a relatively good physical condition, with small and medium-sized fat tissue deposits, which cannot be easily eliminated with the diet or exercising. The treatment is a silhouette shaping procedure, it is not recommended for the treatment of obesity or to achieve body mass reduction. The equipment uses the phenomenon of cryolipolysis, i.e. damaging fat cells by low ambient temperature. To ensure that the low temperature influences the fat tissue only, Zeltiq is equipped with special sensors which prevent frostbites. It is a perfect treatment for persons who want to get rid of excessive fat in the belly area, body sides (“love-handles”) and back sides. It is also applied in the correction of gynecomastia. Technically, the treatment involves placement of the cooling applicator which, after sucking in a fold of fat tissue, cools the fat tissue for 1 hour.

Is this a painful treatment?

This is a completely non-invasive procedure designed for the reduction of fat and body shaping. The treatment uses the cooling technology which attacks fat cells without any cuts or surgical interventions. The treatment is exceptionally safe. During the first minutes of operation of the panels, the patients experience intensive cold, but this feeling passes quickly. Infrequently, a skin burning sensation may appear after removal of the applicator, which lasts for a few minutes. The treatment itself does not involve the need of convalescence.
