Cryolipolysis: The Science Behind CoolSculpting

Cryolipolysis is the science behind CoolSculpting. The fat reduction phenomena was first discover by Harvard scientists that noticed fat chills at a higher temperature than water. From that discovery, CoolSculpting was developed. Also known as freezing fat, CoolSculpting eliminates fat cells by freezing them to death. Powered by cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting reduces fat without surgery and little to no downtime. This makes it a great non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Read on to learn more about Cryolipolysis and how it reduces fat non-invasively.

What is Cryolipolysis?

Cryolipolysis is a medical term for a treatment that applies cold temperatures (cryo) to fat cells (lipo) in order to break down (lysis) those cells. Unlike liposuction, the great thing about freezing fat is that it reduces bulges without involving a general anesthetic, incisions, scarring, or lengthy recover times.

What Does Cryolipolysis Actually Do?

By applying a very specific low-temperature range to a stubborn bulge, underlying fat cells freeze. Because fat solidifies at a higher temperature than water, the procedure avoids damaging skin and muscle tissue, which is predominantly made of water.

When fat freezes, the cell structure breaks down, and is fatally damaged.¹ The lymphatic system which gathers and metabolizes all sorts of dead or damaged cells from the body goes to work on the frozen fat cells. Over the span of several weeks, the fat cells are gathered up by white blood cells and then discarded as waste.

The result is a long-lasting reduction in fat in areas like thighs, belly, and chin.

Could CoolSculpting Be a Solution for You?

The important thing to understand is that CoolSculpting is not a solution that was designed to deal with obesity issues. Instead, the aim is to apply it in very targeted areas where people have generally found it difficult to reduce stubborn fat deposits. These stubborn bulges commonly include love handles around the belly and hips, excess fat on thighs, and even a dreaded double chin.
