Who Is It For

The CoolSculpting by Zeltiq procedure reduces fat by cooling it. Ideal candidates for the CoolSculpting by Zeltiq procedure have discrete and localized fat bulges on the abdomen, love handles, inner thighs, and back. CoolSculpting by Zeltiq is especially helpful when the fat bulge cannot be reduced by diet and exercise. CoolSculpting treatments result in noticeable and natural looking fat reduction in the treated areas.

How It Works

The procedure is done by placing the CoolSculpting applicator on the fat bulge for one hour. During this time, the applicator chills the fat. The exposure of the fat to cooling begins a process of natural fat cell removal. The removal of fat occurs gradually over the next three months following the procedure.

There is no discomfort during the time the applicator is on the skin. In order to maintain symmetry, most patients will treat two areas of their body during the treatment session (one area on each side of the body). Patients may do whatever they wish during this time, including reading, working with their electronic devices, or listening to music.

Results

The CoolSculpting by Zeltiq procedure results in visible fat reduction and a lessening of fat bulges. The results occur gradually over a two or three-month period following the procedure. The CoolSculpting procedure is extremely safe. There is minimal discomfort during the procedure, and absolutely no down time after the procedure. There may be mild tenderness after the treatment and a temporary reduction in sensation resulting from the chilling of the tissues. Most patients resume their normal activities, including returning to work and exercise regimens, on the same day as the procedure. Three months after the first procedure, the procedure may be repeated to further enhance the result.
