may I know Zimmer Cryolipolysis is a CoolSculpting treatment but just using a different machine? how was the result for Zimmer? Does any surgeon recommend Zimmer compare with Zeltiq? because the prices are very different and my biggest concern is the EFFICIENCY and result. I plan to go for lower abdomen treatment. please advise me as I’m a bit confused now.
ANSWER BY DR. GERRISH
The Zimmer Corporation manufactures a medical-grade cooling device that assists in both skin cooling and pain control for dermatological procedures. The Zimmer does not have the ability to create any changes and/or reductions in the fat layer. CoolSculpting on the other hand uses cryolipolysis to cause fat cell death resulting in non-invasive body contouring. In regards to the most efficient and successful non-invasive body contouring treatment, it is my feeling that CoolSculpting is the current gold standard.
