CoolSculpting is a revolutionary procedure that reduces fat in targeted areas. It is the “new cool way” to reduce fat and it’s only available at Zel Skin & Laser Specialists in Edina. Dr. Brian Zelickson, MD, is the first physician in the United States to use CoolSculpting outside of clinical studies.
What It Treats
CoolSculpting is effective for spot treatment of localized fat deposits and works best on modest fat bulges in highly–targeted areas often referred to as love handles, muffin top and back fat. The best candidates are men and women who are pretty fit but just can’t get rid of that area of concentrated fat, no matter how much they exercise.
How It Works
The science behind CoolSculpting was discovered by Harvard Medical School dermatologists. Through controlled cooling of fat cells, Zeltiq crystallizes lipids in the body to induce a natural, controlled reduction of fat cells–clinically known as apoptosis. The fat cells in the treated area are gently eliminated through the body’s normal metabolic processes.
What the Treatment Involves
A typical treatment session for one area takes one to two hours to complete. The amount of treatment applications needed depends on the actual size of the area being treated. In the months following the initial procedure, there is a gradual reduction in the thickness of the fat–1/4” reduction of fat layer per treatment. The effects are cumulative so patients need to meet with Dr. Zelickson to assess the cosmetic improvement and consider whether additional procedures are necessary to achieve more fat reduction.
Dr. Brian Zelickson, an internationally recognized expert in skin care,
treats patients from Minneapolis, St. Paul, Edina, Wayzata, Plymouth, St. Louis Park, Minnetonka
and other communities throughout Minnesota.
