How it work
FROM POPSICLES TO CRYOLIPOLYSIS TO COOLSCULPTING
Years ago, scientists at Harvard University observed that some children who ate popsicles got dimples in their cheeks. The scientists realized that the popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells.
The idea that cold can target fat cells—without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue—was the insight behind Cryolipolysis®, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based.
CoolSculpting Freezes & Reduces Stubborn Fat
The CoolSculpting procedure safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently target the fat cells underneath the skin and crystalize (freeze) them. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and reduces these treated cells.
