Certified CoolSculpting Specialists Ensure Safety & Effectiveness
Slim Freezer Belt and CoolSculpting
Slim Freezer appears as an ice pack. Unfortunately, it will not work like CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting isn’t just about “freezing” the fat, but using a vacuum apparatus and controlled heating and cooling.
Coolsculpting is tried and true - Don't be fooled
I would not recommend something as you describe like a slim freezer belt. It if is not FDA cleared I would steer clear of it. It may work with the same principle, but the risks would be significant. Coolsculpting is a precise tried and true reproducible process that is safe and highly effective. Something like this would carry the risk of frostbite and uncertain, uneven and perhaps undesirable and irreversible results. I would not subject my patients to such risks. Be careful. I hope that helps.
All the Best,

CoolSculpting has a high degree of safety.
I would not subject my patients to risk of injury from a procedure that has not passed the FDA clearance that CoolSculpting has obtained for fat reduction. Is the belt to which you refer effective? Does it cause frostbite? Does it actually reduce fat? CoolSculpting is a safe treatment but no device is without risk and one must keep this in mind when considering devices that are not regulated or not recommended by physicians.
No Substitute for Zeltiq's CoolSculpting
While I am not familiar with the Slim Freezer Belt, it cannot match the results of true CoolSculpting by Zeltiq, as performed by a trained professional. First, the temperature of the CoolSculpting applicator is precisely controlled to destroy fat cells without damaging nearby tissues or nerves. I doubt an over-the-counter system can make the same claim. Second, an effective CoolSculpting session is dependent not only on Zeltiq's patented cryolipolysis(TM) technique, but the expertise of the practitioner – who needs to be trained and certified by Zeltiq.
CoolSculpting is just what the name implies: Sculpting the body by removing fat. This takes not only a practiced hand, but also knowledge of anatomy and a sense of aesthetics. Save your money by not buying ineffective devices. If budget is a concern, bring up your need for a payment plan when you consult with a board-certified dermatologist about permanently removing fat with CoolSculpting; we are always happy to work with patients to help them achieve their goals within their means.
