Zerona vs Zeltiq Fat Removal
Comparing Zeltiq (Cool Sculpting) to Zerona is not accurate at all since the latter is based on a laser targeting the fat cells poorly.
However, the Zeltiq will freeze the fat cells (cryoplipolysis) without affecting other tissues; the fat in the adipocytes (fat cells) will freeze at a controlled temperature inducing cellular apopotisis (programmed cell death) hence a permanent solution.
In summary, Zerona is nowhere comparable to the effectiveness of Zeltiq treatment.
Patients who had different non-surgical fat removal treatments were unsatisfied until they underwent the cool sculpting (Zeltiq).
I hope this helps.
Thank you for your question.
CoolSculpting can permanently kill some fat cells
CoolSculptping by Zeltiq does not temporarily shrink the fat cell volume, it actually kiills fat cells. The 20% reduction quoted in fat volume is scientifically proven.
Zerona doesn't work, Zeltiq Coolsculpting does
To the best of my knowledge, Zerona had not been proven to work and at best just temporarily pushes fat out of the cells, which later refill again with fat. Usually when devices like Zerona can be sold to non-physicians (chiropractors, spas) it is too weak to be an effective medical device. Zeltiq Coolsculptng devices are only sold to medical physicians and does have permanent results. It actually damages the fat cell walls themselves which are then removed by your body.
