Zeltiq at the Body Treatment Center

Zeltiq CoolSculpting is a non-invasive method of reducing fat from areas of the body.  It is particularly effective for removal of fat cells on the upper and lower abdomen, the love handles, and the bra bulge of the upper back.  Zeltiq removes fat from the body with a unique technology, utilizing a technique called cryolipolysis.  Cryolipolysis freezes fat cells on the treated areas of the body; the body’s own immune system then responds by flushing the affected fat cells from the body.  The result is a 20% reduction of fat cells in the treated area. Zeltiq CoolSculpting takes one hour per area treated.  During this time, the non-invasive Zeltiq applicator is attached to the area being treated.  Over the first few minutes of treatment, a very cold sensation is felt on the skin.  This sensation quickly subsides and most people don’t feel anything in the area during their treatment.  The results of Zeltiq can be appreciated two to four months after the treatment is performed.  For most patients, one Zeltiq treatment is sufficient, though some patients decide to have additional treatments for continued reduction of fat in the treated areas. The cost of Zeltiq CoolSculpting depends on the size of the area being treated.  All Zeltiq treatments are performed at the Body Treatment Center in midtown Manhattan.
