Zeltiq for Arms CoolSculpting: What to Expect?

Michelle Obama’s arms!

Regardless of your political affiliation, there is one thing that is undeniable: Michelle Obama has arms that women of both parties are always talking about. In fact, a recent poll found that if women were to compile a variety of celebrity features to create the “perfect body” they’d choose the First Lady’s arms!


So what can you do to mimic her sculpted biceps, triceps, and shoulders? Well, of course, diet and exercise are always first on the list. Any muscle in the arm that is covered by a layer of adipose makes it difficult to see your hard work! Unfortunately for some women, however, there are areas of the arm that simply seem untouchable. Despite any amount of diet and exercise, they still have the “chicken wings” (or so my patients call them). What’s more, a recent survey done by soon-to-be-brides found that one of their biggest stresses was….creating “wedding dress arms” in time for the big day.

So what can you do if diet and exercise aren’t enough? Zeltiq!

I am so excited about Zeltiq because I have seen and treated the awful scars that cosmetic arm surgery has caused, and because it offers my patients an opportunity unlike any other: shrinking arm fat with NO work during a lunch break.

Zeltiq is a CoolSculptor….a machine that uses cytotechnology to cool fat cells to the point that they will undergo apoptosis (programmed cell death). The body then disposes of these dead fat cells like it would any other debris, leaving healthy tissue completely untouched. You come to the office, sit in a comfortable chair in front of a flat screen with Netflix and OnDemand (or read, chat on your phone, catch up on your laptop, or take a well-deserved nap!). We attach a small handpiece to your arms, and the cooling begins! At only 60 minutes per area, you’ll be back in business in just two hours, with no recovery time!  You’ll watch the area shrink over the next weeks to months. It’s as simple as that.

Sound too good to be true? Check it out for yourself by clicking on the Zeltiq link to your left or coming to visit me in the office to discuss how CoolSculpting can address your particular concerns.
