Cool Sculpting – Freeze Fat Away

CoolsculptingCool sculpting is a non-invasive way to lose fat cells and shape your body.  The treatment itself was started when scientists at Harvard noticed that some children who ate popsicles got dimples in their cheeks. Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD realized that the popsicles were freezing and killing off small pockets of fat cells.

Cold can target fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue. That is the basis for Cryolipolysis®, the science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is founded.

During the treatments, the fat cells are targeted and frozen. The frozen cells then die off and are eliminated by the body over time.

This procedure is intended for fat reduction and shaping. It is not meant for weight loss. Coolsculpting reduces the actual number of fat cells in the body by 20-25%. During normal methods of weight loss, the fat cells are not eliminated but shrink. These eliminated fat cells never return. Any weight gained post procedure would be gained evenly throughout the body, not returning directly to the treated area.

Your treatment will be customized to your body and tailored to fit what your goals are. Everyone’s body is different. Unlike weight loss, with CoolSculpting you can eliminate and target. It has been FDA approved and has been performed safely for millions of people. Side effects are rare, generally mild and usually subside fairly quickly.
