Zeltiq CoolSculpting TM

The coolest, most innovative, non-invasive and natural way to quickly lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat.

CoolSculpting™ by ZELTIQ™ is a new, non-invasive way reduce fat in targeted areas of the body. The Zeltiq® Coolsculpting procedure differs from traditional liposuction, SmartLipo in that it is non-invasive (no needles, surgical incisions, anesthesia or recovery time) and unlike Zerona, it uses "advanced cooling technology" instead of a laser to selectively target and reduce unwanted abdominal fat, love handles (flanks), and back fat.

The Coolsculpting procedure works using a precisely controlled cooling method called Cryolipolysis™ to target, cool, and eliminate fat cells without damage to other tissue. During the one to three hour procedure, a non-invasive applicator is applied to the skin surface where it gently draws the fat bulge up between two cooling panels. As treatment begins, the patient feels a sensation of intense cold which reportedly dissipates after a short time. The CoolSculpting procedure is also comfortable for most patients, who read, listen to music, use a laptop or simply relax during treatment. Without a recovery time, patients can typically resume their routine activities, including returning to work and exercise regimens on the same day as the procedure.

Fat cells that are targeted by the intense cooling begin a process called “apoptosis” where the fat cells shrink. This damages the fat cells without harming the surrounding tissues. The crystallized fat cells are then naturally removed by the body's normal processes over the course of roughly two to four months.

Cryolipolysis is an innovative new method of fat reduction involving "fat-freezing". During a CoolSculpting procedure, unwanted fat areas are pressed inbetween two cooling plates for 1-3 hours. During this time, fat cell lipids literally freeze to death, causing fat cells to harmlessly break down and become reabsorbed by the body.

CoolSculpting is currently the only FDA approved body contouring method to use cryolipolysis. Other popular non-surgical body sculpting treatments rely mainly on thermal laser energy, tissue stimulation or injectable solutions to break down unwanted body fat.



SmartLipoTM

You've tried dieting. You've tried exercise. But parts of your body have simply refused to tone up. Now you can change all that. SmartLipoTM is a revolutionary, minimally invasive treatment that does something no fitness routine in the world can: permanently destroy fat cells. Since you have only a finite amount of these, no new fat cells come back—and you can finally have that body you've always wanted.

• Permanently melts fat away
• Leaves the skin firmer & tighter
• Less pain than traditional liposuction
• Local anesthesia
• Quick recovery time
• Immediate results

Traditional liposuction has been available for years and is used to treat large areas of the body where fat deposits have become prevalent. Recovery from this type of invasive surgery is typically slow, bruising is extensive and the results can be less than what was hoped for. With SmartLipoTM the recovery time is greatly reduce with less pain and swelling with better, more noticeable results.

SmartLipoTM utilizes a laser to literally melt fat away, stimulating collagen production, leaving the skin and tissue tighter than it was before. The SmartLipoTM is ideal for treating small areas, especially for patients who have localized fat deposits but very lax overlying skin, which would have been made worse by traditional liposuction.
