What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that uses a device to kill fat cells in targeted parts of the body so that they can be eliminated.
It isn’t meant as a solution for obesity, but it’s perfect for men and women who need a little extra help getting rid of noticeable bulges in problem areas that are notoriously resistant to trimming. CoolSculpting systems are safe, they won’t damage your skin and patients can go about their usual business as soon as they leave their surgeon’s office.
The science behind CoolSculpting is called Cryolipolysis, and it was developed by Harvard scientists Dieter Manstein and R. Rox Anderson, MD.
A gel pad and applicator fit comfortably around the area to be treated, then the temperature is gradually lowered until it freezes the fat cells below the skin’s surface. Once these cells reach a certain temperature, they die and are expelled naturally during the body’s usual elimination process.
The success rate is just above 95%, and the results are long-term; ones the fat cells die, they’re gone for good.
