CoolSculpting technology receives FDA clearance to address concern of 14 million Americans.1
Dallas, Texas – August 3, 2017 – Dr. Lori Stetler and Dr. Kristel Polder, of Dallas Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics, are among the first doctors in Dallas to perform upper arm fat reduction treatment with CoolSculpting, the first and only FDA-cleared technology to address this area of the body.2
CoolSculpting works by gently cooling targeted fat cells in the body and producing a natural, controlled elimination of these fat cells without affecting surrounding tissue. While CoolSculpting has been used to treat other areas of the body, the recent FDA clearance of its CoolAdvantage™ Petite Applicator makes it the only non-invasive fat removal technology available in the U.S. to address upper arm fat.
“We’ve had a waiting list for months of patients who are ready to say goodbye to their ‘bat wings’,” says Dr. Polder. “Since we offer dual sculpting, we can treat both arms at the same time, and schedule patients for one session that only lasts 35 minutes.”
CoolSculpting is a safe and effective treatment for non-invasive fat reduction. The technology is FDA-cleared for the treatment of fat bulges in the submental (below the chin) area, thigh, abdomen, flank, bra and back fat area, underneath the buttocks and now, the upper arm.
Dr. Stetler explains that CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment. “Each contouring treatment reduces about 20 to 25% of fat cells in the targeted area, and most people require two sessions to achieve their desired results,” says Dr. Stetler. “CoolSculpting is most effective for stubborn pockets of fat that just won’t go away with routine exercise and maintaining a healthy diet.”
Only a select group of dermatologists currently have access to the CoolAdvantage™ Petite Applicator, with a more expanded launch to follow in the coming weeks. CoolSculpting® is developed and marketed by ZELTIQ® Aesthetics, Inc. (Nasdaq:ZLTQ).
