Years ago, scientists at Harvard University observed that some children who ate popsicles got dimples in their cheeks. The scientists—Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD—realized that the popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells.1
The idea that cold can target fat cells—without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue—was the insight behind Cryolipolysis®, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based.
Fat Elimination After the CoolSculpting Procedure1
Fat cells that are frozen during the CoolSculpting procedure gradually die off and leave the body through the body’s natural elimination process. That’s why the results are long-term.2 Untreated areas will have no change in fat cell distribution.*
The science is proven. The technology is proven.1
After many years of research, you can feel confident that the CoolSculpting procedure is based on sound science. Leading researchers & doctors have published more than 50 scientific & clinical journal papers, medical meeting posters, and technical reports.
