Zeltiq™ Non-Invasive Fat Removal
Grossman Dermatology is one of the first practices in the world to offer Zeltiq™, a new, revolutionary, non-invasive method that eliminates unwanted fat bulges.
The Zeltiq™ Procedure gently and effectively reduces fat in targeted areas of your body, resulting in noticeable, natural-looking fat reduction in the treated areas. What makes the Zeltiq™ Procedure different is its advanced cooling technology that targets and eliminates fat cells. The Zeltiq™ Procedure is available on a limited basis in Canada, the European Union and other international markets. The Zeltiq™ device is also cleared by the FDA in the United States for various applications related to skin cooling during dermatologic treatments, with a pending application for non-invasive fat layer reduction.
How does the Zeltiq™ Procedure work?
The Zeltiq™ Procedure works by means of a patented method called Cryolipolysis™ (the use of precise, controlled cooling to remove fat). It is designed to only kill fat cells and not harm skin or other tissue. The result is a reduction in fat bulges such as back fat, belly bulges and, love handles (a.k.a. muffin tops) that is visible in most patients in two to four months. There is no need for anesthesia or pain medications and there is no recovery time or scarring!
Candidates for the Zeltiq™ Procedure
Ideal candidates for the Zeltiq™ Procedure are relatively fit, but have unwanted fat bulges in certain areas. Zeltiq™ offers spot reduction for specific areas of fat. It is not recommended for patients that are not considering liposuction. A consultation with Dr. Grossman will be necessary to determine whether you are a candidate for the Zeltiq™ Procedure. Zeltiq™ is safe for all skin colors/types.
