Jan. 24, 2011 - PRLog -- CoolSculpting™ by ZELTIQ ™, an innovative technology that freezes away unwanted fat, is now available at Vail Dermatology, making it one of the first medical practices in the state to offer this breakthrough in non-invasive fat reduction.

“CoolSculpting™ by ZELTIQ  is an exciting new approach to reducing fat within targeted areas. It is non-invasive and has shown significant results in clinical studies for removing fat without the potential risks and downtime of invasive procedures,” said Dr. Karen Nern, Vail Dermatology founder and Board Certified Dermatologist. “The procedure is effective, especially on resistant localized areas such as back fat, love handles and the isolated belly fat. The science behind this technology is excellent,” stated Dr. Nern.

Cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CoolSculpting™ by ZELTIQ ™ gently cools unwanted fat cells in the body thereby inducing a natural, controlled elimination of fat cells. Based on science developed by the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Mass., in the United States, this breakthrough is based on a vast body of research that demonstrates that fat cells are more susceptible to cold and are selectively, painlessly and permanently destroyed. Starting several weeks after the procedure, cooled fat cells begin a process called “apoptosis” and begin to shrink and disappear. The body proceeds to naturally and gradually eliminate the cooled fat cells, reducing the thickness of the fat layer.

Dr. Karen Nern and Vail Dermatology will be hosting a CoolSculpting™ by ZELTIQ ™ informational party on February 15, 2011 at their Edwards office location. Doctors Karen Nern, Jean Urquhart, and Hallie McDonald will be answering questions as well as giving a presentation with more information on the new technology. A martini bar and light sushi will be available, and all attendees are encouraged to RSVP before Monday, February 14, 2011 by calling Vail Dermatology at 970-926-9226 or by emailing “”. Vail Dermatology will give a gift certificate to one attendee at the event for one free CoolSculpting™ by ZELTIQ treatment.  

Dr. Hallie McDonald, a physician at Vail Dermatology, experienced a CoolSculpting™ by ZELTIQ ™ treatment today. “It is a quick and easy procedure. First you feel the suction of the cup and then a cooling sensation. It is comfortable enough to read a book or even talk on the phone,” Stated Dr. McDonald.
Unlike many other methods of fat reduction, the CoolSculpting™ by ZELTIQ procedure involves no needles, surgery or downtime. During the procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the treatment area thereby specifically targeting fat. Treatment cycles last between one to two hours. Patients can have additional procedures for more pronounced effects if they desire. On average, each CoolSculpting™ by ZELTIQ  procedure results in a 22% reduction of fat in the treated area, and patients can start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of two to four months in most patients.
