CoolSculpting™ is a new, non-invasive way to gently and effectively reduce fat in targeted areas of the body. CoolSculpting results are noticeable and natural-looking. What makes the CoolSculpting Procedure different is that it uses advanced cooling technology (Cryolipolysis) to selectively target fat bulges and eliminate fat cells through a gradual process (apoptosis and phagocytosis) that does not harm the surrounding tissues. The CoolSculpting Procedure can reduce unwanted fat and bulges in the flank (love handles) and abdomen. Unlike traditional invasive surgical procedures, the CoolSculpting Procedure is non-invasive with no needles and no need for surgical incisions.
With this non-invasive procedure, there are no needles, no incisions, no need for anesthesia, and no recovery time. The CoolSculpting™ treatment is convenient for most patients, lasting 1-3 hours. During their treatment, they can read, work on their laptop computer, listen to music or just relax. Most patients typically resume their routine activities, including returning to work and exercise regimens on the same day as the procedure.
New. The Cool Way to Reduce Fat
CoolSculpting™ is the only non-surgical body contouring treatment that freezes and eliminates fat from your body. There are no needles, no special diets, no supplements and no downtime. Developed by Harvard scientists, CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared, safe and proven effective.
For the first time, patients who do not want the risk, cost and downtime associated with surgery or other invasive methods have a choice in CoolSculpting™. With a customized treatment plan developed by an authorized CoolSculpting provider, patients can achieve dramatic results with this non-surgical procedure.
During the CoolSculpting™ procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the treatment area to specifically target underlying fat, leaving surface skin and other surrounding tissue unaffected. When fat cells are exposed to extreme cold, a process of natural removal is triggered, which gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer. The result is a noticeable and measurable reduction of fat in the treated area. Every patient is unique, which is why ZELTIQ™ recommends a customized treatment plan as part of the initial consultation. Additional treatments in the same or multiple areas achieve even greater fat reduction.
CoolSculpting™ results in a noticeable and measurable reduction of fat in the treated areas, and the treated fat cells are gone for good. Patients can start to see results in as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring after one to three months. Every patient is unique, which is why ZELTIQ recommends a customized procedure plan as part of the initial consultation. Additional treatments in the same or multiple areas achieve even greater fat reduction.
CoolSculpting™ is clinically proven to be a safe and effective treatment. With patented built-in safety measures including Freeze Detect™, it is the only cold-based, non-surgical body contouring treatment that is cleared by the FDA. Patients can sit or lie comfortably and read, work on their laptop or even nap during the procedure. There are no needles, no special diets, no supplements and, most importantly, no downtime. CoolSculpting is performed in a medical office and under the supervision of a licensed physician.
CoolSculpting™ is U.S. FDA cleared, CE Marked as a Class IIa medical device, and has the most medical approvals worldwide. CoolSculpting™ is performed by an elite global network of CoolSculpting™ Centers, also making it the most widely available non-invasive fat reduction procedure in the world. To date, more than 1,300 systems in over 55 countries have performed more than 450,000 treatments worldwide.
CoolSculpting™ is ideal for patients who are looking to transform their body without diet, exercise or surgery. It is not intended as a weight-reduction for overweight or obese individuals. The best candidates are people who are seeking fat reduction and are not considering a surgical procedure. Every patient is unique, which is why ZELTIQ™ recommends a customized treatment plan as part of the initial consultation. Additional treatments in the same or multiple areas achieve even greater fat reduction.
The CoolSculpting Procedure developed by ZELTIQ™ is based on sound science called Cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis is the result of a groundbreaking discovery by Drs. Dieter Manstein and R. Rox Anderson at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. ZELTIQ™ is the exclusive licensee of this patented technology and therefore the only company to provide Cryolipolysis. Their initial work, first published in the peer-reviewed professional journal Lasers in Surgery and Medicine, proved that subcutaneous fat cells are naturally more vulnerable to the effects of cold than other surrounding tissue. These studies and other clinical research from centers of excellence confirmed that fat cells, when exposed to precisely controlled cooling for a sustained period of time, undergo a gradual reduction and cell death through a process called "induced apoptosis."
Founded in 2005, ZELTIQ Aesthetics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ZLTQ) is a medical technology company focused on developing and commercializing products utilizing its proprietary controlled-cooling technology platform. It has licensed the exclusive commercial rights to Cryolipolysis from Massachusetts General Hospital as a non-invasive method of reducing fat. The company is advancing the science, clinical evaluation, and commercial development of this technology. Its first commercial product, the CoolSculpting System, is designed to safely, noticeably and measurably reduce fat. ZELTIQ™ is committed to using this breakthrough technology and making it available to physicians around the world specializing in cosmetic procedures.
