What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved fat-freezing treatment. It’s a completely non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts of diet and exercise. This means no incisions, no scars, and no downtime!

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

The way CoolSculpting works is by targeting certain areas of the body and exposing them to very cold temperatures. The cooling process used in CoolSculpting causes the fat cells to crystalize and gradually die off. The dead fat cells are then naturally processed by the body and excreted over a period of six to 12 weeks, leading to a trimmer figure.

Where Do Fat Cells Go After the CoolSculpting Procedure?

The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25%. These fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated, so they won’t migrate to another area of your body. And, unlike what happens with other procedures, there’s no change to fat cells in untreated areas.

History Of CoolSculpting?

Scientists at Harvard observed that toddlers who were using popsicles in order to cope with teething pain were developing dimples in their cheeks as a result. This discovery led to the development of the CoolSculpting treatment and the devices that are used in clinics today are based on this principle.

How Does CoolSculpting Work to Get Rid of Belly Fat?

CoolSculpting is a relatively new type of cosmetic treatment where fat cells are exposed to extreme cold, which causes them to become crystallized and eventually removed from the body in a completely natural way. The idea behind CoolSculpting was discovered by accident when two Harvard scientists found that children who ate popsicles to ease teething pain were developing dimples in their cheeks.
