Zeltiq review Does Zeltiq work for fat reduction

This a follow review after the first article on zeltiq review.  After that article was published, there was a lot of interest from my readers and there were a number of questions asked. Rather than answer them individually, I though I would take this post to clarify on all the questions about Zeltia treatment.

What is Zeltiq

It is a new procedure for freezing fat and breaking them up so that the body can discharged them naturally. The use of cryolipolysis has proven to be effective in many studies that compare this procedure with the traditional liposuction procedure.

Does Zeltiq effective for fat reduction

Unlike other non invasive liposuction such as liposnix or zerona laser treatment, zeltiq has scientific evidence backing up its effectiveness.   In every study done so far, cryolipolysis (the Zeltiq procedure) has been proven to be effective in producing about a 20-25% reduction in fat thickness per treatment. While zeltiq is effective, the amount of fats removal will be less than that of liposuction. Nevertheless, results so far indicate that it is an effective procedure.

Does Zeltiq work for cellulite reduction

Zeltiq is mainly used for fat removal and does not help much in reducing your cellulite reduction. A better solution would be Thermage, which has been developed solely for the purpose of moving your cellulite.

Zeltiq vs laser liposuction

There are some key difference between the two procedures.

  • Zeltiq is a non surgical liposuction procedure while laser liposuction need surgical operation
  • Zeltiq has a no recovery time line while laser lipo needs at least 2-4 weeks for the bruising and swelling to disappear
  • Laser liposuction can remove larger amounts of fats while zeltiq is effective for small amount of fat removal

What is the average cost of zeltiq

The average cost of zeltiq is around USD1,500 which much cheaper than normal liposuction procedures, which can cost around USd5,600. If you want to know more liposuction prices, I refer to my previous article on the average cost of liposuction and how much does liposuction cost.

If you want to know much zeltiq cost in different cities and states, below is some actual costs paid by patients who went went through the actual procedure.

Cost of Zeltiq nyc: USD 2,100. This pricing is offered by  Dr Lori A. Brightman, MD whose location is at Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York, 317 East 34th Street, 6th & 11th Floors, New York, NY. According to reviews, “Dr. B was wonderful…extremely knowledgeable and very enthusiastic about the device and its results. The before and after pics she showed me were equally impressive so I booked an appointment.”

Cost of Zeltiq San Diego, California: USD1,700.  La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery is the name of the clinic that offered this pricing package. Unfortunately, the reviewer did not see any results and will not recommend this clinic.

Cost of Zeltiq Flordia: USD970. This is the cheapest price I have seen so far in my pricing survey.  The name of the surgeon or the clinic was not revealed. However, the reviewer did not recommend the service, saying that”I didn’t want to fill this part out. I think, overall, that the dr was a nice man, but the technology was poor. I can’t say he wouldn’t be good at other areas of his practice.”

Given that Zeltiq is so new, there was very limited pricing information. In our next update, I try to update pricing information for the State of Virginia , Massachusetts , New Jersey and Texas.

In summary, Zeltiq is effective and does wonders for your fat reduction.
