Non-invasive alternative to liposuction for reducing upper arm fat is finally available with recent FDA clearance of a new CoolSculpting applicator.

SKINNEY Medspa, a luxury medical spa with location in New York City has announced that they are now offering the new FDA cleared Coolsculpting procedure that freezes away upper arm fat.

ZELTIQ®Aesthetics, Inc., manufactures of the CoolSculpting® System, announced the recent FDA clearance of CoolSculpting’s non-invasive treatment for reducing upper arm fat. CoolSculpting is a clinically proven, non-surgical procedure that selectively reduces unwanted fat using patented cooling technology. Touted as a non-invasive alternative to liposuction, CoolSculpting is now the only FDA cleared treatment for the non-invasive reduction of stubborn upper arm fat.

"There are 29 million people in the U.S. interested in CoolSculpting, with more than 14 million expressing concern about unwanted arm fat, making arms the third most popular area for consideration of non-invasive fat reduction," explained the CEO of ZELTIQ. Foley says the FDA’s clearance demonstrates ZELTIQ’s commitment “to investing in R&D and clinical research to provide consumers with solutions that they desire most.” Foley also says that the clinical evidence provided by ZELTIQ for the FDA’s evaluation supports “CoolSculpting's ability to successfully treat upper arm fat [and] is a testament to our technology's efficacy and versatility.”

"Everyone carries fat in different areas based primarily on genetics and diet,” explains Adriana Martino, a CoolSculpting specialist and co-founder of SKINNEY Medspa, the leading provider of CoolSculpting in New York City. “Many patients express concern about fat in the upper arms” says Martino explaining that “a large amount of our clients want perfectly sculpted arms." Martino expects her clientele will be very pleased with this recent development in the CoolSculpting system, especially among her female patients because “women tend to carry excess fat in the upper arms,” she explains.

The FDA clearance for fat reduction in the upper arm area was specifically approved for ZELTIQ’s latest applicator, the CoolAdvantage Petite. In a press conference announcing the recent FDA clearance, ZELTIQ stated the CoolAdvantage Petite “optimize[s] the performance of CoolSculpting in the upper arms.” The applicator was release in April of 2017. The CoolSculpting system is outfitted with various applicators of different sizes, each ideal for treating the different sized areas of the body. “The CoolAdvantage Petite is equipped with 2 interchangeable contours, “specifically designed for targeting fat deposits that cling to the upper arms” explains Adriana Martino, co-founder of SKINNEY Medspa.

About the CoolSculpting Procedure:
CoolSculpting is the commercialized byproduct of a scientific breakthrough from physicians at Harvard Medical School. Harnessing a method of action known as Cryolipolysis, “CoolSculpting works by gently cooling targeted fat cells in the body to induce a natural, controlled elimination of fat cells without affecting surrounding tissue, and the treated fat cells are gone for good” explains the makers of CoolSculpting. Since its first FDA approval in 2005 for the reduction of fat in the abdomen and flanks, ZELTIQ has developed applicators with FDA clearance for non-invasive fat reduction from the thighs, underneath the buttocks, back, bra area, chin, and now upper arm area. The safety and efficacy of CoolSculpting is clinically supported by over 70 peer reviewed studies. “CoolSculpting is the clear market leader in non-invasive fat reduction” claims ZELTIQ’s recent press release with more than 3.5 million CoolSculpting treatments performed in over 80 countries by an international network of CoolSculpting providers.
