What Is CoolSculpting?
Coolsculpting by Zeltiq works by freezing fat cells; a process scientifically called Cryolipolysis®*. This sounds impossible we know. Even our medical director was skeptical until he tested the cool sculpting treatment on problem areas of his own body. He lost 2 inches from his waist with just one treatment!*
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
Cryolipolysis is the result of a groundbreaking discovery by researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital of Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. They discovered that subcutaneous fat cells are naturally more susceptible to the effects of cold than other surrounding tissue*. These Harvard studies confirmed that you can freeze fat away*. When exposed to precisely controlled cooling for a sustained period of time, fat cells die and the amount of fat you have is reduced*. Once these fat cells die, they cannot come back*. This is why CoolSculpting is like a non-surgical lipo (liposuction)*.
Depending upon the amount of fat reduction you desire, and amount of fat excess you are starting with, the treatment may be repeated more than one time to reach your CoolSculpting results goal*. After you freeze the fat, it takes a few months for the full result to become apparent*.
*Results and patient experience may vary.
