The Science Behind CoolSculpting Explained

CoolSculpting – it’s been applauded, admired, praised and pronounced the fastest, easiest, and most effective means for combatting unwanted fat without going under the knife. Proven, lasting results that do what diet and exercise cannot without the pain of surgery?

It sounds too good to be true, and yet endorsements for this non-invasive fat-eliminating treatment continue to grow each and every day. How does this miracle treatment work? What is the science and medicine behind the media hype?

Here is a brief breakdown of what exactly CoolSculpting is and how it works, putting to rest once and for all the myths and facts associated with this modern-day medical miracle through the backings of science.

CoolSculpting Explained

For those who haven’t yet heard about CoolSculpting, it is a non-invasive treatment option intended to eliminate stubborn, unwanted fat deposits on the body through the process of freezing. By targeting the cells beneath the surface of the skin, the procedure safely and effectively reduces fat. It is not a “quick weight loss option” but rather an FDA-approved means for minimizing and eliminating fat, the same types of fats traditionally targeted by invasive, expensive, and often painful surgeries.

The Science: How it Works

The entire process originated when two scientists at Harvard University noticed and observed the dimples that formed on children’s cheeks as they ate popsicles. From there, Dr. Anderson and Dr. Manstein discovered that the cold temperature from the popsicles was actually eliminating small pockets of fat within the kids’ faces. Thus, they expanded upon this concept and created the CoolSculpting method to eliminate unwanted fat.

CoolSculpting utilizes Dr. Anderson and Dr. Manstein’s science of Cryolipolysis, in which fat cells are crystalized and frozen, causing them to die. When these cells no longer function, the body naturally eliminates them over time and the result is an overall firmer physique. It does not affect the surface skin and, because it can be done with exact precision, only affects specific areas mapped out by a practiced medical professional.

The natural effects of the body while it eliminates these cells is the ultimate effect of procedure, making it both safe and natural. Likewise, because it eliminates the cells themselves, the results have been proven to be long term. More than 5,500 clinical studies have been conducted with nearly 60 researched articles and published scientific papers proving both this new science and new technology to be both safe and effective.
