Harvard scientists developed the science of CoolSculpting®. This technology takes advantage of the knowledge that fat freezes at higher temperatures (degrees C) than skin (0 degrees C). Fat’s unique sensitivity and susceptibility to cold injury allows CoolSculpting® to target problematic fat cells without harming the overlying skin. By applying cold pads to the skin that are precisely controlled for temperature, the target fat cells get a freezing injury. They crystallize and eventually die. The body gradually and naturally metabolizes and absorbs these dead fat cells over the following 2 to 3 months after your procedure. As this occurs, you will notice progressive improvements in contour, and ultimately a more sculpted slimmer physique within 3 to 4 months.
CoolSculpting® is ideal for patients who have noticeable bulges in certain areas that they just cant get rid of. However,it is not a treatment for obesity or for weight loss. It’s a procedure that’s best suited to patients of normal weight with unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise.
Many of us have stubborn fat despite diet and exercise.
CoolSculpting® technology uses controlled cooling to target and kill only these fat cells.
In the weeks to follow, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells.
CoolSculpting® procedure results are long-term,1 as treated fat cells are gone for good
