Reduce Body Fat Using Cryolipolysis: Zeltiq Is the Newest Device at Naficy Rejuvenation Center That Freezes Fat, and Melts It Away

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwire - January 25, 2010) - Zeltiq, a liposuction alternative, is a non-surgical way to reduce unwanted body fat using a patented cooling technique (cryolipolysis) that reduces the number of living fat cells. Unlike liposuction, the Zeltiq procedure is non-invasive, and does not require incisions or injections. No anesthesia is required for the Zeltiq procedure.

Zeltiq was inspired by the observation that children who habitually sucked on popsicles developed cheek dimples, presumably due to loss of fatty tissue from their cheeks.

Zeltiq works by controlled cooling which induces fat cells in the treatment area to die. The skin covering the treatment area is not harmed because skin cells are more cold resistant than the underlying layer of fat. The result is visible reduction of the fat layer in the treated area, which is typically seen within a couple of months.

The Zeltiq device utilizes a suction cup that uses constant vacuum to suck in a fold of fat. Each fold of fat is cooled for a 60-minute cycle that cools the fat cells to a low enough temperature to cause them to die. During the treatment, you can relax, read, use a computer, or watch a movie while Zeltiq gently cools your treatment area.

Zeltiq is being offered only in select highly reputable plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery offices in the United States and Canada, and Naficy Plastic Surgery & Rejuvenation Center is the only clinic in the Northwestern United States to offer the Zeltiq procedure.
