    How does CoolSculpting Work?

    CoolSculpting Information

    Well, it all started with popsicles. You read that right, popsicles.

    Years ago, scientists at Harvard University observed that some children who ate popsicles developed dimples in their cheeks. The scientists—Dieter Manstein, M.D. and R. Rox Anderson M.D.—realized that the popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells. The idea that cold temperatures can target fat cells—without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue—was the insight behind Cryolipolisis®, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based.

    The science and technology are proven.

    After years and years of research, it is safe to say that CoolSculpting is 100% based on sound science. Leading researchers and doctors have published more than 70 scientific and clinical journal papers, medical meeting posters, and technical reports. Click here to see the studies.

    And here’s how it works.

    CoolSculpting technology uses controlled cooling to target and kill fat cells in one of nine specific areas of the body. In the weeks to follow, the body naturally processes and eliminates the dead cells. This process is the reason that CoolSculpting results are long-term—the treated cells leave the body naturally, and don’t return to the treated area. Untreated areas will have no change in fat cell distribution.

    The result is spectacular

    “Dr. Shah listened attentively and patiently. He answered all my questions and addressed all my concerns, at EVERY step along the way: pre-surgery, surgery day, and post-surgery visits. And the results of his expert surgery were SPECTACULAR!”


    How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost?

    The price of for this procedure depends on several factors. The factors that play a role in determining treatment cost include the size and location of the treatment region, the number of areas targeted for treatment, and the medical practice you choose for your CoolSculpting session.
