From Popsicles to Cryolipolysis to CoolSculpting
Years ago, scientists at Harvard University observed that some children who ate popsicles got dimples in their cheeks. The scientists—Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD—realized that the popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells. The idea that cold can target fat cells—without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue—was the insight behind cryolipolysis, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based. So exactly how does CoolSculpting freeze and eliminate stubborn fat?
Safe, precise, controlled and effective...
Many of us have stubborn fat despite diet and exercise. CoolSculpting technology uses controlled cooling to target and kill only these fat cells. The CoolSculpting procedure safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystalized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you. CoolSculpting results are long term,* because treated fat cells are gone.
Fat elimination after the CoolSculpting procedure...
Fat cells that are frozen during the CoolSculpting procedure gradually die off and leave the body through the body’s natural elimination process. That’s why the results are long-term. Untreated areas will have no change in fat cell distribution.
The science is proven, the technology is proven...
After many years of research, you can feel confident that the CoolSculpting procedure is based on sound science. Leading researchers and doctors have published more than 100 peer-reviewed publications. You can learn more about the scientific studies here. But one of the best ways for patients to understand how the CoolSculpting treatments works is to see it in action!
