How It Works

The Science of Cryolipolysis

Like many great medical inventions, the CoolSculpting procedure sprung out of a keen observation of nature and was applied in a novel, therapeutic way. It has been observed for over half a century that children eating popsicles can lose areas of fat in their cheeks, basically what we all know as facial dimples. Children have lots of unsaturated fat in their skin, and this fat is susceptible to injury by cold. The process of targeting the fat cells without damaging the skin or the surrounding tissue is known as Cryolipolysis, and it is a proven science on which CoolSculpting procedure is based.

CoolSculpting Applicators

The original CoolSculpting applicators were flat, and were placed on the skin to cool it over the course of an hour.

The newest applicators are much gentler, and the hand pieces have a shape of a cup that suctions the tissue away from the body to ne cooled. This makes the new generation of applicators more efficient than the previous one, with much shorter cooling times – about 35 minutes per session.
