Both Liposonix and Zeltiq are FDA approved technologies to reduce localized fat. I have researched both technologies and even had treatments with both devices prior to purchasing Liposonix.

Both Liposonix and Zeltiq are FDA approved technologies for noninvasive localized fat reduction in a single treatment. Liposonix used focused ultrasound so it can be targeted to specific layers and areas with precision. Zeltiq can only be used where the fat layer can be pinched between 2 paddles, and it may take a few sessions to get all areas desired.
