Cryolipolysis. Learn about freezing fat with CoolSculpting

Cryolipolysis is the scientific method that sculpts attractive-looking physiques.  This fat-freezing process is the #1 non-surgical fat reduction alternative to Liposuction. CoolSculpting or Cryolipolysis refers to the reduction of fat deposits through exposure to precisely controlled temperatures. “Cryo” means cold, “lipo” refers to fat, and “lysis” means cell death. 

Also called fat freezing, Cryolipolysis is scientifically proven to reduce stubborn bulges despite diet and exercise. Results appear natural, providing long-term solutions to frustrating fat deposits, such as belly fat, love handles, and more. Read on to learn more about CoolSculpting and if fat freezing is right for you.

The Discovery of Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis was discovered by Harvard Scientists Dr. Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD. They noticed a reduction in cheek fat when children sucked on popsicles, a phenomenon called popsicle panniculitis. Dr. Manstein shared the concept of Cryolipolysis with Allure Magazine stating, “Fat freezes at warmer temperatures than water. Take butter and water in the refrigerator – one is solid, the other remains a liquid.”

Utilizing the same standard, Dr. Manstein recognized that by exposing fat bulges to cold temperatures, he could successfully freeze the fat without harming the overlying tissue. This occurs because skin cells consist mainly of water and thus have a much lower freezing capacity than fat cells.

How Cryolipolysis Works

CoolSculpting uses an applicator to isolate a fat bulge like belly fat, then exposes that fat deposit to exact cooling.  These temperatures are cold enough to freeze subcutaneous fat while protecting the skin. “Frozen” fat cells crystalize then rupture. This causes apoptosis or cell death. The destruction of the cell signals the lymphatic system to excrete these cells as waste from the body. This process may take several weeks. Like Liposuction, which surgically removes the fat cells, Cryolipolysis freezes fat cells to death.  Therefore, once these “frozen” fat cells leave the body as waste, they are gone for good. This represents for you a fantastic physique with long-lasting benefits.

Cryolipolysis results in impressive long-term fat reduction. Nils Krueger’s study depicts a 25% reduction in fat following a single fat freezing treatment. Unlike Liposuction, which uses a surgical procedure to remove the body’s fat, Coolsculpting employs no surgery. Fat freezing is convenient, painless, non-invasive, and requires no downtime. That is why millions of men and women flock to CoolSculpting, making it the #1 non-invasive fat reduction treatment in the world.
