CoolSculpting uses cold to freeze fat cells without damaging any of the surrounding tissue for non-invasive fat removal. Since we brought Zeltiq’s new CoolSculpting device to Denver, one of the most common questions that I get is, “How does it compare to Zerona?” First and foremost there is significant amount of peer reviewed clinical data that shows how incredibly well CoolSculpting works. CoolSculpting is the ONLY FDA-approved, non-invasive fat removal treatment that has an indication for reducing the thickness of the fat layer. Zerona uses red light, but this device only has about the same power as a laser pointer. There are no peer-reviewed studies that show significant fat layer reduction with Zerona.
Unfortunately, people using Zerona use a measuring tape around the treated area to determine effectiveness. This is a notoriously inaccurate way to measure effectiveness. Zeltiq’s CoolSculpting device removes about 25% of the fat layer after each procedure. It is clinically proven, reliable, and works on everyone. For those in Denver who want non-invasive fat removal, it is a simple choice. Zerona is simply a case of marketing that results in 59% of patients being unhappy (check out the reviews on realself.com). CoolSculpting works safely and consistently for all patients. It will rid you of 50% of your fat layer in two easy, no-downtime treatments.
