Freezing Fat for Natural Body Sculpting

Posted August 12, 2008 in Minimally Invasive and Non-Invasive Fat Removal

Zeltiq Aesthetics has developed a breakthrough biotechnology for reducing unwanted fat. The Zeltiq device uses cryolipolysis to precisely cool fat and induce lipolysis (the breakdown of fat) apparently without any permanent damage to other tissues (skin, nerves, muscle and bone) around the fat. The technology allows for natural body sculpting.

Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital performed the pioneering research that evolved into a non-invasive system to reduce subcutaneous fat. They first presented their research at the 2008 meeting of the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery. Please refer to the scientific paper on cryolipolysis from this meeting for a detailed explanation.

Dr Sydney Coleman is on the physician advisory board for Zeltiq.

More information about this and other non-invasive or minimally invasive methods of fat removal can be seen in a new paper Co-authored by Dr. Sydney Coleman.

Dr. Sydney Coleman received an updated, advanced version of the Zeltiq Device and has been using this version for several months. Click here to read more.
