Does anyone have additional information on Slim Freezer?

CoolSculpting is the only FDA-approved device for cold fat removal in the US. Any other cool whatever devices are knockoffs, and they are illegal in the US. And this, being an OTC device, cannot duplicate what we have in our offices.
Don't be fooled and consult with appropriate folks — board-certified dermatologists and plastic surgeons.
CoolSculpting has proven its effectiveness and I have still not learned of Slim Freezer in my NYC practice
Since the question was posted more than two years ago, I have still not encountered this device here in the U.S. I continue to treat my patients with CoolSculpting and have good results and a very high patient satisfaction rating and safety level.
Coolsculpting vs Slim Freezer
I haven't heard of this device, but please be careful in placing trust in non-approved technologies. Coolsculpting is an FDA approved, proven technology, for fat reduction. Its important for a medical professional to administer the treatment, with a machine that has cooling plates associated with a vacuum technology.

While I've never heard of this product, beware that there will be devices made and attempts to be sold by stating they also freeze fat! CoolSculpting is the only FDA approved devise for fat reduction in the US. No home device is going to perform the way CoolSculpting does and is not recommended.

Imitations of CoolSculpting
Accept no imitations
There have been a number of companies (many from China) who have attempted to tap into the success and popularity of Coolsculpting. They have marketed their machines with different names in different companies. I would avoid these imitators as they do not have effectiveness or safety of Coolsculpting.
Beware the "CatchPenny Copycats" of Medical Technology
The unfortunate reality is that when a truly safe, effective, impactful new aesthetic technology is developed (and in this case patented), there will inevitably quickly emerge multiple copycats with cute and similar sounding names hoping to skim some quick revenue by fooling the unsuspecting and hopeful patient.
As of this writing, I know of NO other treatment based on cryolipolysis (the science of reducing fat by cooling) that is safe and effective. Don't be penny wise and pound foolish- seek out a Coolsculpting Certified Center.
