Zeltiq is different because it uses a cooling technology to safely target and eliminate fat cells without harming the skin
Duxbury, MA (PRWEB) April 22, 2011
Dr. Christine Hamori, a plastic surgeon on Boston's South Shore, is pleased to announce that CoolSculpting from Zeltiq, a new FDA-approved, non-invasive procedure for fat reduction, is now available at Christine Hamori Cosmetic Surgery + Skin Spa in Duxbury, MA. Gentle and effective, CoolSculpting from Zeltiq uses an innovative method of precisely controlled cooling to help reduce unsightly fat bulges that do not respond to diet and exercise.
What makes the Zeltiq procedure different is that it uses an advanced tissue cooling technology to selectively target and eliminate fat cells without harming the skin. In just a few months, it gradually reduces unwanted abdominal fat, love handles (flanks), or back fat without needles, incisions, or anesthesia — with no downtime. Clinical studies have shown that the Zeltiq procedure can reduce the fat layer thickness by up to 22.4% within two to four months post-procedure after a single procedure.
The science behind the Zeltiq procedure is called Cryolipolysis, which was developed by dermatologists at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School. Their research showed that fat cells are naturally more vulnerable to the effects of cold than other surrounding tissues, and that fat cells can be safely eliminated without harming the overlying skin. This discovery led to the development of the non-invasive Zeltiq procedure.
Dr. Hamori categorizes Cryolipolysis as a breakthrough in the science of fat reduction. “Zeltiq is different because it uses a cooling technology to safely target and eliminate fat cells without harming the skin," said Dr. Hamori. In just a few months following the treatment, there is a gradual reduction in the thickness of the fat layer resulting in cosmetic improvement of fat bulges.
According to Dr. Hamori, “The new treatment is best suited for relatively fit persons who seek spot reduction for specific trouble areas of fat, but who do not want a surgical invasive procedure."
Dr. Hamori also cautioned that the treatment is not intended for weight reduction, and it is not intended to replace other invasive procedures, like traditional liposuction, for those seeking for more a pronounced result in fat reduction.
The Zeltiq procedure is comfortable for most patients, and no pain medication is required. While undergoing the procedure, most patients keep themselves occupied by reading, working on a laptop, listening to music, or just relaxing. Also, there is no recovery time after the Zeltiq procedure and patients usually resume their normal activities the same day, including work and exercise.
