Thousands of men and women have been rushing to get the new Zeltiq’s Cool sculpting system to help get rid of their localized fat pockets. The Zeltiq system is a novel approach to getting rid of “love handles.” The doctor takes a cup-shaped device, applies it to the area of fat and turns on the vacuum. The device is cooled for about 60 minutes to a certain temperature and voila -your fat is gone. Like all things in plastic surgery, you do not see the results right away and most people need several sessions. The optimal cosmetic results occur after 2-3 months. At least that is what is supposed to happen. There is no anesthesia, no needles, no incision but you must have a lot of money. So does Zeltiq’s cool sculpting system work?
Anyone who believes that applying an ice pack to the body surface leads to burning of fat must be either very gullible, very stupid or both and deserves to lose their money. Of course, this is a swindle. There are hundreds of reports on cyberspace by women who have undergone these treatments and discovered that Zeltiq does jackshit.
What is even more depressing is that Zeltiq's cool sculpting costs $700-$1,000 per session. And if you want to get rid of the fat lumps around your belly or the back of your thighs, that will be another couple of hundred or a cool $1400 per session.
If you have any common sense, avoid this scam. The only thing cool about Zeltiq is that you will have a sign over your forehead saying that you are a cool Sucker.
