How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting® is such a unique process that many wonder how it can possibly work. How can attaching a very cold instrument to the body for 60 minutes result in a smoother, more toned belly or thighs and a permanent loss of fat? While the process may seem nearly incomprehensible, it actually works by a very specific scientific process that was first discovered by a team of researchers from Harvard.

Before getting into all that CoolSculpting® entails, we must back up and tell you what everyday occurrence got these researchers thinking about the connection between freezing temperatures and fat reduction. One day, these researchers saw a group of children sucking on very cold popsicles. After an extended time of doing this, these children were seen to have developed the formation of dimples in their cheeks as a result of fat reduction there. This got the researchers to wondering how they could apply this same principle into something that could benefit all of those who wanted to lose irritating pockets of fat on their bodies.

You see, no matter how much you work out or how healthy you make your diet, you may still find troublesome areas of fat on your body. These could be tied to your genetics or they may be the result of multiple pregnancies, past diseases or surgeries. CoolSculpting® is unique in that it can target these specific areas without harming the surrounding tissues and without the need for any invasive treatments. Specifically, CoolSculpting® can be used on fat on the belly, upper arms, back, flanks, outer and inner thighs and buttocks.

To use this same idea of fat reduction on these problem areas, Harvard researchers designed a machine that could be placed on the surface of the skin and that used freezing temperatures with suction to freeze fat cells. Once these cells are dead, the body will eventually eliminate them naturally over the next two or three months. When the fat cells are excreted, a more toned body can be seen.

The beauty of CoolSculpting® is that the results are permanent just like liposuction results are. Therefore, you can experience a permanent reduction of fat cells without having to undergo surgery or have general anesthesia. Only treated areas will be affected. While remaining fat cells can become larger if you practice unhealthy eating or exercising habits, your body can never create new fat cells in the future.
