About the CoolSculpting® Procedure
The CoolSculpting procedure is a non-surgical, clinically proven procedure that selectively reduces fat bulges in problem areas using a patented cooling technology. Cleared by the FDA for noninvasive fat reduction in the abdomen, flank and thigh, it gently cools unwanted fat cells in the body to induce a natural, controlled elimination of fat cell without harming surrounding tissue, and the treated fat cells are gone for good. Over 1,000,000 CoolSculpting cycles and 2,200 systems have been shipped to more than 60 countries. 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.
About ZELTIQ® Aesthetics, Inc.
ZELTIQ Aesthetics, Inc. is a medical technology company focused on developing and commercializing products utilizing its proprietary controlled-cooling technology platform. ZELTIQ's first commercial product, the CoolSculpting system, is designed to selectively reduce stubborn fat that may not respond to diet or exercise. The CoolSculpting procedure is based on the scientific principle that fat cells are more sensitive to cold than the overlying skin and surrounding tissues. It utilizes patented technology of precisely controlled cooling to reduce the temperature of fat cells in the treated area, which is intended to cause fat cell elimination through a natural biological process known as apoptosis. ZELTIQ developed the CoolSculpting procedure to safely, noticeably, and measurably reduce the fat layer.
