Episode 0007: Zeltiq Aesthetics – Part 1: Pioneering the market for non-invasive fat reduction

Zeltiq has single handedly created a new market for reducing fat that targets the moderately overweight segment.  It has become the fastest growing aesthetic treatment, which was already notable for the tremendous demand for neuromodulators like Botox and hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane and Juvaderm.  In Part 1 of this podcast, we explore how Zeltiq’s high margin consumables and systems have permitted the company to break through the barriers that often restrain new aesthetic products.  We also discuss why cyrolipolysis, an affordable and non-surgical procedure, is popular with a new group of women and also men who are approaching practitioners for help in sculpting difficult areas of their bodies that they can’t control with dieting or exercise alone.
