WABC TV recently aired this segment about the ZELTIQ CoolSculpting procedure, a non-surgical fat removal procedure we offer here in Fairfax, VA.
Dermatologist Eric Schweiger explains the procedure and then performs it on a patient. The doctor tells the news team about research leading up to the discovery of ZELTIQ “fat freezing technology.
Reporter Lauren Glassberg writes:
“Schweiger says this technique came about after researchers noticed that kids who sucked more popsicles had more dimples. Based on this observation, researchers looked at the effect of cold on the skin. They found that by cooling the skin and keeping it at 68 degrees Fahrenheit, some of the fat could be destroyed, while the skin, muscle, and nerves survived Zetliq is not without side effects.”
