Zeltiq Gets FDA Approval for Fat Reduction

Today, CoolSculpting by Zeltiq received FDA approval for non-invasive fat reduction. CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis technology to virtually freeze fat away.

According to the company, CoolSculpting by Zeltiq results in a 20% fat reduction in the treated areas on patients. Results can typically be first seen three weeks following the treatment with maximum results seen over the course of two to four months. The treatment usually takes 1-2 hours and can be repeated over time for more pronounced results.

Prior to the approval of CoolSculpting, there had been a gap in the body sculpting market for a non-invasive fat reduction method that involves no needles and no downtime. By targeting the underlying fat, CoolSculpting leaves the skin tissue intact and unaffected.

The Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey and the Sanctuary Medical Aesthetic Center in Boca Raton, FL, are home to CoolSculpting by Zeltiq. For more information, feel free to contact our offices with any questions or concerns you may have about CoolSculpting by Zeltiq.

  1. Although I'm a fan of Zeltiq also, it's interesting to note that the FDA clearance was technically for "cooling of skin", not "lipolysis"...
