What is CoolSculpting ®?
The process behind CoolSculpting ® is known as Cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis means “Frozen Fat” because the CoolSculpting ® procedure uses a unique process that is known to target and eliminate fat cells. Studies have shown that cold crystalizes fat cells, causing cell death. Since the rest of the body’s cells can tolerate lower temperatures, only the fat cells are killed. With newer equipment and improving procedures, as much as 35% of the fat in a given area can be removed through cryolipolysis.
How Cryolipolysis Works
The Cryolipolysis procedure takes advantage of studies that showed that those exposed to cold seemed to lose fat while other cells were left untouched. Fat cells, known as adipocytes, react to cold, they become crystalized, or frozen, killing the cell, and locking the fat inside. After cooling, the cell dies, and the fat is unusable. This stimulates inflammation, which is part of the process the body uses to clear undesirable toxins from the body.
As the body cleans itself over the next three months, the dead cells are removed and the live cells condense, decreasing the area of fat. These fat cells are permanently removed, and as long as the proper diet and exercise are maintained the fat will not return.
Cryolipolysis and Body Contouring
Zeltiq CoolSculpting ®’s cryolipolysis procedure is becoming one of the most popular alternatives to liposuction. Safe and FDA cleared since 2012, CoolSculpting ® uses natural body process to eliminate the fat. Since it is a nonsurgical procedure, there is no need for anesthesia, and no risk of infection.
Cryolipolysis works on any type of body, but the procedure is not specifically designed for massive weight loss. Rather, it is designed to target areas of punchable fat that haven’t been removed through diet and exercise. CoolSculpting ® is for active people who need just a little bit of body contouring because they are already at or near their goal weight. It is also very useful for busy people who don’t have time for extended treatments or long term recovery.
CoolSculpting ® is an exciting procedure, and more than 2 million people worldwide have undergone Cryolipolysis in order to address their body contouring needs.
