What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that utilizing Cryolipolysis to reduce stubborn fat. Broken down, Cryolipolysis means cold induced fat cell death and removal. Just like liposuction, Cryolipolysis eliminates fat cells from the body. The innovative thing about this fat reduction procedure is that it doesn’t actually involve being unconscious or having large instruments entering your body through incisions in your skin.
Cryolipolysis: How Fat Freezing Works
If you open your refrigerator and compare butter (which is mainly fat) to water, it is obvious that fat freezes and solidifies at higher temperatures than water. Moreover, it is this scientific fact that cryolipolysis takes advantage of. By subjecting small areas of fat cells to low temperatures, it is possible to specifically target the fat cells without damaging surrounding skin or muscle cells (which consist mostly of water.) As the fat cells freeze, their structure breaks down, which then leads to apoptosis or programmed cell death1. Once that happens, the body’s natural process of removing dead cells from the body kicks in and the frozen fat cells are collected and excreted from the body as waste.
