The Effectiveness of New Non-Invasive Fat Loss Procedures

Now They're Going After Fat With Lasers and Ice Beams

Although neither one of them is FDA-approved for the purpose, two new non-invasive fat reduction mechanisms, the Zerona laser and Zeltiq cooler, are building some buzz. Although the science behind them suggests some level of effectiveness, neither one of them seems to approach the level of traditional liposuction. The price per treatment for these procedures is lower, though, and you avoid potentially deadly complications from going under the knife.

How do you feel about procedures like this in general? And if you were considering a fat reduction procedure, would you be tempted to do this even though its effectiveness hasn't been proven, or would you go the riskier but more rewarding route?

Zeltiq is FDA approved and offered by my dermatologist's office - http://bit.ly/kKL0cC - I have heard only great things about it and it is not intended to take the place of exercise, just to help target the muffin top that you can't seem to lose. I think it is a great idea.

I think people need to stop being so gluttonous and lazy and get out and exercise.
