HOW IT WORKS
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—realised 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.
Losing weight makes fat cells smaller – Losing weight does not make fat cells go away. The number of fat cells in our bodies typically becomes a fixed number sometime in our teenage years. Losing or gaining weight generally does not increase or decrease the number of fat cells. Instead, it changes the size of fat cells. Over the weeks following your procedure, other cells consume the dead fat cells, which are naturally processed and eliminated from the body.
The CoolSculpting procedure safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. It’s easy to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat. After we select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During your procedure, you may choose to read, check email, or even take a nap.
The CoolSculpting® fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately.
The treated fat cells are crystalised (frozen), then die. In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells revealing a more sculpted you.
