(1888PressRelease) Dr. Peter Kruy, Medical Director of Finesse Laser & Lipo Center in Waltham, Massachusetts, is now using the revolutionary CoolSculpting device by Zeltiq to reduce and contour fat bulges with no down-time.
Boston, MA-NH – Waltham, MA – Reduce stubborn fatty areas non-invasively with the newest technology that freezes fat cells using the CoolSculpting device by Zeltiq. Located in the metropolitan Boston area, Finesse Laser & Lipo Center is offering this unique treatment, recently approved by the FDA, to selectively eliminate fat without surgery or injections.
CoolSculpting by Zeltiq uses a process known as Cryolipolysis to freeze and permanently destroy fat cells. A non-invasive applicator placed on the skin delivers precisely controlled cooling to the treatment area specifically targeting the underlying fat, leaving the skin unaffected. The technology was developed by physicians at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital who found that fat cells are more susceptible to cold than other cells. The Zeltiq system crystallizes the fat in the cell which causes the fat cell to die. The damaged fat cells are gradually removed by the body’s metabolic processes over a two to four month period.
“We perform a lot of body contouring procedures using the Smartlipo Triplex system. Although downtime is minimal with Smartlipo, some patients cannot afford any downtime or are not willing to undergo a surgical procedure,” says Peter Kruy, M.D. of Finesse Cosmetic Laser & Lipo Center. “If the person has relatively small areas of localized fat, CoolSculpting by Zeltiq becomes an ideal solution. Each area takes about an hour to treat and the patient can immediately resume their normal activities and exercise regimens.”
Several body areas can be treated in each session while the patient reads a book, watches a movie, listens to music, or works on their laptop.
No incisions, needles, pain medication, or compression garments are required. Studies have shown a 20 – 25% reduction in the treated fat layer with each treatment. Results can be seen in as little as 3 weeks, with final clearing of damaged fat cells taking up to 4 months. To get further reduction of a fat bulge, the treatment can be repeated in an area as the results are additive.
Dr. Kruy points out that “the Zeltiq procedure is not for weight loss and won’t take the place of Smartlipo laser-assisted liposuction, but it does offer a great alternative to those patients who do not want a surgical procedure but still want to safely, effectively, and permanently contour their body.”
