Zeltiq was founded in 2005 as Juniper Medical, Inc., by Mitch Levinson, who had previously led Thermage, and Scott Wolf. The company changed its name to Zeltiq in July 2007.
The company uses a medical device to “freeze” fat cells. For the clinics that use it, there is a high capital investment, and a room is tied up for a relatively long time.
This process is intended for body contouring and not general weight loss. As of 2013, clinical trials have found that Cryolipolysis is moderately effective and has mostly mild and temporary side effects.
As of January 2012, the company states that there have been more than 150,000 subjects who have used Coolsculpting to achieve results.
While Coolsculpting may not work for everyone, the majority of people who have used it have only rave reviews.
