Zeltiq (CoolSculpting) for Excess Weight

Zeltiq uses fat-freezing technology to remove targeted excess fat from overflowing parts of the body. Zeltiq can be used on the back, abdomen, and waist. During the procedure, a cooling device is placed over the skin, causing the underlying fat cells to plunge to a temperature 40 degrees. While the skin cells are left in intact, the fat cells aren't as lucky.

Fat cells die at a higher temperature than skin cells and other tissues – and 40 degrees is enough to destroy them while not harming surrounding cells. The procedure results in a 20 to 25% reduction of fat cells in the treated area over three months.. Results can be maintained with appropriate diet and exercise. Zeltiq costs $1,500 to $3,000.
