BATON ROUGE, Louisiana (October 8, 2012) – New technology that promises to freeze away unwanted pockets of fat will be introduced at Z Aesthetic Dermatology next month. Dr. Ann Zedlitz will be one of the first in the Baton Rouge area to offer CoolSculpting, an innovative procedure that allows for effective, non-invasive fat reduction. The procedure will become available at Dr. Zedlitz’s office in October, 2012.
“We are excited to be able to offer CoolSculpting as a non-invasive cosmetic option for our clients,” Dr. Zedlitz stated. “This procedure has shown promising results in clinical studies, allowing us to remove unwanted pockets of fat with fewer risks and a much shorter downtime. Our patients will love the results they enjoy, with a leaner body contour in problem areas like the back, hips and belly. The CoolSculpting procedure is relatively comfortable and offers effective, long-lasting results for our clients.”
CoolSculpting was cleared for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to eliminate fat cells by cooling them to a temperature where they can be removed naturally. Research has shown that fat cells respond more efficiently to cold and are destroyed without discomfort or damage to surrounding tissue. The technique is based on science from the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.
The entire procedure involves absolutely no needles, invasive surgery or recovery time afterward. An applicator delivers cooling to the treatment area, targeting fat and leaving other tissue and cells intact. After the CoolSculpting procedure is complete, patients can expect to see results several weeks later. The cooled fat cells begin “apoptosis,” a process in which cells begin to shrink and disappear naturally. The body’s own processes eliminate the cooled fat to reduce the thickness of the isolated fat pocket.
Dr. Zedlitz performs the CoolSculpting procedure at her Baton Rouge office. Treatment takes anywhere from one to two hours to complete, with no downtime required after the procedure. Additional procedures can be done with CoolSculpting for more dramatic results. Dr. Zedlitz’s patients may begin to see results within three weeks following treatment, with full results visible after two to four months.
Dr. Zedlitz offers a variety of cosmetic procedures at her Z Aesthetic Dermatology Clinic in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. A graduate of LSU Medical School, Dr. Zedlitz currently serves as Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology at the LSU Health Sciences Center. Dr. Zedlitz is also a Fellow with the American Academy of Dermatology.
