Mr. Foley continued, “More importantly, our proprietary CoolSculpting® system is uniquely engineered to monitor, deliver and maintain a precise cooling temperature – features which are not found in copycat systems such as those manufactured by Clinipro. In the absence of temperature monitoring, patients are either subjected to temperatures that are too cold, which introduces safety risks such as freeze burn, or temperatures that simply are not sufficiently cold and, as a result, the procedure does not work. Copycat systems are looking to profit on our pioneering and innovative technology in the cryolipolysis field, with products that do not provide patients the safety and performance results that they have come to expect. CoolSculpting® continues to be the market leader and is the only cold-based, non-surgical fat reduction and body contouring treatment that is FDA-cleared. With nearly 500,000 procedures to date worldwide, we have unrivaled clinical experience in this area and intend to protect our technology, physician practices, and patients from inferior products.”About ZELTIQ ® Aesthetics, Inc. ZELTIQ is a medical technology company focused on developing and commercializing products utilizing its proprietary controlled-cooling technology platform. ZELTIQ’s first commercial product, the CoolSculpting ® System, is designed to selectively reduce stubborn fat bulges that may not respond to diet or exercise. CoolSculpting® is based on the scientific principle that fat cells are more sensitive to cold than the overlying skin and surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting® utilizes patented technology of precisely controlled cooling to reduce the temperature of fat cells in the treated area, which is intended to cause fat cell elimination through a natural biological process known as apoptosis, without causing scar tissue or damage to the skin, nerves, or surrounding tissues. ZELTIQ developed CoolSculpting® to safely, noticeably, and measurably reduce the fat layer within a treated fat bulge without requiring the patient to diet or exercise.
