Cryolipolysis: The Science Behind CoolSculpting

Coolsculpting was conceived after doctors came across an old New England Journal of Medicine article that said kids who sucked on popsicles were losing weight. With an innovative spirit and the use of modern technology this concept has been developed into what we call coolsculpting, an FDA approved procedure to rid your body of unwanted fat deposits.

Known as Cryolipolysis, the science behind coolsculpting, the procedure is pretty straight forward. In coolsculpting the affected area is targeted with a precisely controlled cooling device. The targeted fat cells underneath the skin are crystalized (frozen), then die. Over time your body processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells through your body’s natural method. This process leaves your troubled area well sculpted and more aesthetically pleasing.

A good candidate for coolsculpting is someone who has unwanted fat in a specifically targeted area. As opposed to a gastric bypass, coolsculpting is not an alternative for weight-loss and weight loss surgery. This is a completely safe procedure. This effective treatment is FDA cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental area, thigh, abdomen, flank, and now on the back below the bra area, and chin. The treatment is so non-invasive many patients read, work on their laptop, and even sleep during the procedure. As the first of its kind, the treatment has been used by millions and is a safe and effective for riding the body of those unsightly bulges.

The side effects are minimal and manageable. Immediately after treatment redness, firmness, mild bruising, tingling, and stinging may occur. One to two weeks after treatment the above side-effects may be present in addition to possible swelling, cramping, aching, itching sensitivity, and numbness. Like any medical procedures, there is a chance for more severe, but rare side effects that may require medical intervention. Please talk to your coolsculpting medical professional to learn about these rarities.
