What is the Coolsculpting® procedure?
Freeze away fat?
The idea that cold can selectively affect fat led to the innovative cooling process developed by scientists at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
Proven results without surgery
Renowned Harvard University scientists, Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD, observed that some children got dimples due to eating popsicles. The idea that cold can selectively affect and eliminate fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue was the insight behind Cryolipolysis®, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based.
Once it’s gone, it’s gone for good
The results from some diets and fat reduction treatments may leave you swinging back and forth between “before” and “after” versions of yourself. But the CoolSculpting procedure is non-surgical, safe, effective, and best of all, the results are long-term. So take a good, long look at yourself.
The difference between fat reduction and weight loss
It’s a common misconception that weight loss and fat reduction are the same thing. They’re not.
When you lose weight, your fat cells become smaller, but the number of fat cells stays the same. When you gain weight, your fat cells become larger again.
After the CoolSculpting procedure, the treated areas actually have fewer fat cells. And unlike what happens with other procedures, there’s no change in fat cell distribution in untreated areas.
Results and experience may vary.
