Amazing Results Without Surgery
The story behind how CoolSculpting works will likely surprise you because this procedure became a phenomenon in quite an unusual way. Two renowned Harvard scientists, Dr. Rox Anderson and Dr. Dieter Manstein were studying “popsicle panniculitis”, which is a strange condition that affects children who eat a lot of popsicles. These children began to develop dimples in their cheeks and lose fat in that area. The doctors began to develop a connection between the exposure of certain areas of the body to cold temperature and resulting fat loss in the area. With much trial and error, the doctors discovered that fat cells were actually much more sensitive to cold than other body tissue. They were able to pinpoint a specific temperature in which fat cells begin to die, but the other healthy cells were untouched. The medical concept they created is known as cryolipolysis. Additionally they discovered that as the fat cells die, they are slowly released through the body’s own natural waste systems. The treated area begins to shrink as the fat dissipates. This is the secret behind how CoolSculpting works. CoolSculpting was cleared by the FDA in 2010, and since then, over 1 million treatments have been performed all around the world. The results have been amazing, and they’ve discovered that by using certain applicators to freeze areas of the body, you can actually sculpt a new look. In addition, the fat cells that gradually die do not return, thus giving the treated patient the opportunity to finally reduce stubborn fat.
