Non-surgical fat reduction is an exciting possibility for men and women looking to achieve a contoured body without any of the complications associated with an invasive procedure. FDA-approved CoolSculpting technique has become very popular with more and more people coming forward to utilize its potential to reduce fat in a safe and effective manner.
A report released by Zeltiq Aesthetics, Inc. last month said that it is ranked number one in medical devices on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America. The company attributes 7,000 percent of its revenue growth to its CoolSculpting technology.
According to ZELTIQ’s CEO, "Our first place ranking can be directly attributed to the clinical efficacy of our unique CoolSculpting technology in conjunction with our commercialization strategy". Almost 1.5 million CoolSculpting treatments have been fruitfully performed worldwide. About 150,000 patients are expected to experience the benefits of this exceptional technology this year alone.
- A person loses weight after exercise or dieting as the fat cells reduce in size. The role of Cool Sculpting is not just to reduce the fat cell size but to reduce the number of fat cells in trouble spots.
- Fat cells are targeted and frozen. They eventually die and are eliminated from the body through the metabolic process. This helps avoid the need of the draining process necessary with other fat removal treatments.
- No incisions are needed and you can stay awake during the procedure, engaging in light activities. The procedure causes no damage to the skin as the fat cells freeze at a much lower temperature.
- More importantly, CoolSculpting is safe and painless, making it a great choice for those people who have failed to achieve positive results from exercise and dieting. There is no recovery time, and the results are often dramatic and impressive.
The important thing is that at least eight weeks are needed to see a positive change in the targeted trouble areas and so candidates need to be patient. Also, it is important to note that no cosmetic procedure is an alternative for exercise and healthy diet. It should be only used as a last resort to achieve one’s body contouring goals.
