Years ago, scientists at Harvard University observed that some children who ate pop ices got dimples in their cheeks. This led Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD, to realise that ice can selectively damage small pockets of fat cells.
This idea that cold can target fat cells— without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue— was the insight behind cryolipolysis, the science on which the CoolSculpting® procedure is based.
The CoolSculpting® fat-freezing procedure is a leading non-surgical fat reduction treatment. It uses controlled cooling to eliminate that stubborn fat that’s difficult to shift, even with diet and exercise. So now there's a way to help you achieve your ideal look.
Your CoolSculpting® physician will take the time to discuss a holistic approach to your goals for reshaping your body. Together, you’ll look at your whole body from different angles, then focus on specific areas where you want to eliminate fat.
This is a non-invasive procedure, so there will be no surgery. During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator will be applied to the specified area. This delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat.
Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the CoolSculpting® procedure. Most patients see results between 2 and 6 months depending on the area being treated.
