THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE COOLSCULPTING PROCEDURE
Video – How Coolsculpting works?
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. The CoolSculpting procedure is:
- Safe and effective
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 we lose weight, our fat cells become smaller, but the number of fat cells remains the same. When we gain weight, those fat cells become larger again. However, the CoolSculpting procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas. Obviously, fat cells that are no longer there can’t get bigger. And unlike weight loss surgery or other non-surgical weight loss procedures, results from the CoolSculpting procedure are lasting because once the fat cells are eliminated, they’re gone for good. Whether or not you weigh less, you’ll be thinner and your clothes will fit better, feel better, and look better.**

FAT REDUCTION AFTER THE COOLSCULPTING PROCEDURE
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.
**In the U.S., the CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental area, thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), and upper arm. In China, the Cryolipolysis system is used for fat layer reduction of the abdomen and flanks. In Taiwan, the CoolSculpting procedure is cleared for the breakdown of fat in the flank (love handle), abdomen, and thigh. Outside the U.S., China and Taiwan, the CoolSculpting procedure for non-invasive fat reduction is available worldwide.
