CoolSculpting® Procedure Named "Best Non-Surgical Procedure" by JEZEBEL Magazine

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Apr 8, 2015) - ZELTIQ® Aesthetics, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZLTQ), a medical technology company focused on developing and commercializing products utilizing its proprietary controlled-cooling technology, today announced that its CoolSculpting procedure has been awarded the 2015 "Best Non-Surgical Procedure" in Atlanta by JEZEBEL magazine. The annual JEZEBEL magazine's "Best of Atlanta" awards give Atlanta residents the opportunity to vote for their favorite service, product or local establishment across several different categories.

"We are pleased that JEZEBEL magazine has recognized the CoolSculpting procedure as the 'Best Non-Surgical Procedure' in Atlanta," said Danika Harrison, Vice President of Brand and Consumer Marketing for ZELTIQ. "JEZEBEL'S 'Best of Atlanta' award is particularly exciting because it is based on votes from the readers, the local people actually receiving treatment. We are proud that CoolSculpting has become the treatment choice for those seeking fat reduction and that the residents of Atlanta continue to experience its proven benefits and noticeable results."

JEZEBEL magazine, a regional publication of Modern Luxury, is written as a guide to the urban style and culture of the South. Each year, JEZEBEL elicits votes from readers for their "Best of Atlanta" lineup, a go-to guide designed to provide Atlanta residents with insight on the hottest local attractions, including health and wellness, fashion, dining, nightlife and more. The 2015 winners were based on votes from more than 30,000 readers.

"The CoolSculpting procedure is a popular choice for patients that come to the practice frustrated with unwanted fat that does not respond to diet and exercise. Around this time of year, women and men start preparing for summer and we see more motivation to slim down by targeting trouble areas. CoolSculpting is designed for people looking for non-surgical solutions that target these areas without the downtime or discomfort sometimes associated with other fat reduction procedures," said Dr. Anna Paré of Dermatology Consultants. Dermatology Consultants is the number one CoolSculpting practice in the metro Atlanta area with locations in Buckhead, Marietta and Covington.

The unique CoolSculpting procedure was developed by Harvard scientists and is based on the proprietary science of Cryolipolysis®, a process demonstrating that when fat cells are exposed to extreme cold, they die and are eliminated naturally from the body. Only the CoolSculpting procedure selectively targets (freezes) the fat cells which, once crystallized, die and are naturally eliminated from the body. Fat cells treated and eliminated by the procedure are gone for good, and patients can expect long-lasting results.

In the United States, the CoolSculpting procedure is cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for non-invasive fat reduction in the abdomen, flank and thighs. The CoolSculpting procedure results in a noticeable and measurable reduction of fat in the treated areas, and the treated fat is gone for good. Most patients can start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of one to three months. Every patient is unique, so patients are encouraged to talk to their physicians about a customized treatment plan as part of the initial consultation. Additional treatments in the same or multiple areas may enhance the desired aesthetic effect. 

The CoolSculpting procedure is available through an elite network of CoolSculpting Centers worldwide. Dermatologists, plastic surgeons and leading aesthetic specialists that offer CoolSculpting can be found at www.coolsculpting.com.

ZELTIQ's first commercial product, the CoolSculpting® system, is designed to selectively reduce stubborn fat that may not respond to diet or exercise.
