How does CoolSculpting Work?
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.
*In the U.S., the CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental area, thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), and upper arm. In China, the Cryolipoysis system is used for fat layer reduction of the abdomen and flanks. In Taiwan, the CoolSculpting procedure is cleared for the breakdown of fat in the flank (love handle), abdomen, and thigh. Outside the U.S., China and Taiwan, the CoolSculpting procedure for non-invasive fat reduction is available worldwide.
