CoolSculpting by Zeltiq™ Approved for Fat Reduction by the FDA
Zeltiq™ uses a patented method called Cryolipolysis. This method destroys fat cells in targeted areas by precisely controlling temperatures with advanced cooling technology. The treatment lasts for about an hour. During that time, the treatment area is chilled to just above freezing. Fat cells freeze before other tissue, so crystals form only in the targeted fat cells, resulting in the fat cells dying. During the next one to two months, the fat is flushed from the system as part of the body’s natural metabolic process.
Our physicians have been following this exciting new procedure for years. In fact, SLSS, under the guidance of world renowned dermatologist Dr. David Goldberg was one of the original centers performing FDA evaluations to study the safety and efficacy of CoolSculpting by Zeltiq™. In addition to being one of the most experienced centers with this new technology, SLSS is now one of 12 centers in the nation to offer Easy App 8, the newest version of the CoolSculpting technology that allows the physician to treat larger areas in a shorter period of time. This technology update allows our physicians to further customize treatment and help each patient achieve the results they are looking for.
