The hottest new weight-loss method chills to kill the flab, instead of melting it with heat based lasers.

Tests have shown that just one treatment is capable of destroying up to 25 percent of fat cells in the area.

This innovative machine, called Zeltiq, uses a cooling method called cryolipolysis to target, chill and break down fat cells, reports the Daily Mail.

Developed by researchers at the Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital, Zeltiq has proved a massive hit since being introduced a year ago.
The cryolipolysis process gradually extracts body heat from the subcutaneous levels of fat (the layer that lies just under the skin). The temperature of the fat cells goes right down to zero degrees celsius — literally freezing them. Extremely low temperatures kill the fat cells without affecting either the skin or muscles. The dead cells are then removed naturally by the body through the liver.
