How does CoolSCulpting Work? We will explain the who what where when and why of CoolSculpting!

The Popsicle CoolSculpting Connection

At Harvard University, scientists Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD, noticed that some children who ate popsicles developed dimples in their cheeks. They came to realize that the popsicles were freezing pockets of fat cells in their cheeks, and those fat cells went away.

This discovery was the insight into cryolipolyis – the science on which CoolSculpting is based.

Freezing Away Stubborn Fat

During the procedure, controlled cooling is used to safely and effectively target fat cells beneath the skin. These fat cells become crystalized, then die. Your body then naturally processes and eliminates these dead cells. The result – permanent elimination of stubborn fat!

What Happens to Fat After CoolSculpting

Once fat cells die, they are eliminated through the body naturally. These cells never return. Results are permanent! Any untreated areas will remain as they were prior to the Cool Sculpting procedure.

What to Expect During Your Procedure

CoolSculpting is highly effective in treating a number of areas of the body. Treatable areas include: stomach, flanks (love handles), double chin, upper arms, back (bra fat), outer thighs and inner thighs.
