From Popsicles to Cryolipolysis® to CoolSculpting
Years ago, scientists at Harvard University observed that some children who ate popsicles got dimples in their cheeks. The scientists—Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD—realized that the popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells. The idea that cold can target fat cells—without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue—was the insight behind Cryolipolysis®, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based. CoolSculpting Freezes & Eliminates Stubborn Fat. The CoolSculpting procedure safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystalized (frozen), then die. 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.
Procedure Safety: CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself unaffected.
Clinician Safety: Thousands of specialists have undergone in-depth training and certification to ensure your safety. CoolSculpting treatments are performed only in a medical office under the supervision of a licensed professional to guarantee the highest standards of care.
Device Safety: CoolSculpting systems are the only controlled cooling devices that are designed with built-in safety measures. If sensors detect that the skin is getting too cold, the system will shut down automatically.
