SEPTEMBER 2010 – SINGAPORE – CoolSculpting™ by ZELTIQ™ is a new, non-invasive way to gently and effectively reduce fat in targeted areas of the body that results in a noticeable, natural-looking fat reduction in the treated areas.
What makes the CoolSculpting procedure different is that it uses advanced cooling technology to selectively target fat bulges and eliminate fat cells through a gradual process that does not harm the surrounding tissues. This procedure can reduce unwanted abdominal fat, love handles (flanks), and back fat.
New. The Cool Way to Reduce Fat.™
This medical animation shows how Cryolipolysis works to reduce fat.
Unlike traditional invasive surgical procedures, the CoolSculpting procedure is non-invasive with no needles and no need for surgical incisions. During the procedure, a non-invasive applicator is applied to the skin surface to deliver precisely controlled cooling to target and eliminate fat cells in specific areas of the body.
As they are exposed to cooling, the fat cells begin a process of natural cell removal. The fat cells in the treated area are gradually eliminated through the body’s normal metabolic processes, similar to how fat from food is eliminated. The result is a reduction in fat bulges that is visible in most patients in about two to four months.
Non-Invasive Procedure Benefits
With this non-invasive procedure, there are no needles, no incisions, no need for anesthesia or pain medications, and no recovery time. The CoolSculpting procedure is comfortable for most patients; 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.
