Bathing suit season is around the corner, and yes, I am aware of the two feet of snow outside my front door but this is New England, after all and it will be Spring before you know it. Maybe you are lucky and have vacation plans for a warmer clime  – I am not-so-secretly checking plane fares while I am supposed to be doing other things. I have also decided that aging is not for the faint-hearted.  Even with (almost) daily exercise, certain parts of a certain forty-something body (ahem) are not reducing, at all, I mean not one bit. I feel somewhat comforted that this seems to be the case with lots of women I know, but not that comforted.  So when I learned about Zeltiq (a non-surgical, fat freezing procedure) that is available at a local and very well-respected dermatologist’s office, and shared (I am all about the share), I was overwhelmed with offers. For what, you wonder? Well, at least five people offered to have the procedure and let me write about it. Interview them, sit in on the procedure with them, monitor the results. Wow. People are really ready to go with this. So if you are in the area, stop by the Open House (see it here on Pramatic Mom’s blog) on January 29 (11am to 5 pm) at the Offices of Krauss Dermatology, 1 Washington Street, Suite 401, Wellesley Massachusetts, 02481 781-416-3500 or for more information. There will be demonstrations of the procedure, question and answers and a lecture and food and drink (be sure to RSVP to let them know you are coming). Most importantly  there will be a drawing for free procedures! Oh, and I almost forgot – there is a discount on procedures if you attend the Open House – that is incentive enough for me! See you there!

Here is a good set of questions I found (on Zeltiq’s site) to help decide if it is the right procedure for you.

Is CoolSculpting™ Right for Me?

  • Are you within 10 to 15 pounds of your ideal body weight?
  • Do you have noticeable bulges or bumps that you would like reduced?
  • Do you want subtle, natural-looking results?
  • Do you want a procedure with little to no pain or discomfort?
  • Do you need a procedure with no downtime?
  • Do you prefer a natural process over drugs, chemicals, or surgery?
  • Here are some more links to Zeltiq in the news, and a clip from Rachael Ray.

    1. I think this Zeltiq is pretty interesting because there are very few doctors who can do this procedure and it’s non surgical and non invasive. And, I’m quite convinced that it actually works.

    2. Will eagerly read your follow up post about the procedure, but not really an intervention sort-of girl. Some of my friends tell me it’s because I’m not old enough… yet. Or else, maybe, my age has not yet hit home.

    3. I am anxious to hear what you think of Zeltiq. I am a derm in Scottsdale and am thinking about buying one to offer to my patients. I agree it is interesting, non invasive, moderate cost ($1500) but also moderate results. Is there a market for this?
