How Does CoolSculpting Work?
Before going through the process, it is important to understand how the unwanted fat freezes and is disposed of by your body.
An applicator targets and isolates individual fat bulges in your body and exposes the fat cells to a precisely controlled cooling. This cooling penetrates the skin and freezes the underlying fat cells. After these fat cells are frozen to death, the body gradually eliminates the frozen fat cells. As a result, you notice an obvious difference in your body.
CRYOLIPOLYSIS: Fat Freezing Technology
The cool sculpting treatment is a process that utilizes Cryolipolysis. The word cryo means cold-induced, lipo means fat cells, and lysis means removal of cells. The essence of this treatment is pretty much in its name.
The revolutionary fat freezing process was first discovered by Harvard scientists. This study was based on their observation that fat is sensitive to cold, more sensitive than the skin cells. Your skin cells are mostly made up of water.
What happens if you put a glass of water and a stick of butter in a refrigerator? The glass of water will become chilled due to constant cold but its composition will not change. However, the butter goes through a compositional change due to the cold environment and is transformed into solid.
This concept defines how cool sculpting can be done to reduce fat by freezing the underlying fat cells. The bulge of stubborn fat is first exposed to a precisely controlled cooling. The cold penetrates through the upper skin and freezes the fat cells lying underneath. This will cause the fat cells to become hard and their flexible membrane will rupture.
Without a membrane, your fat cells cannot store fat. Your body will naturally trigger the mechanism to collect and metabolize damaged cells. This process is known as Apoptosis. It can take a few weeks for your body to gather the damaged frozen cells that can then exit your body through the liver as waste.
The process of cool sculpting even though quite simple has a lot of questions surrounding it. We have gathered all of the most frequently asked questions about the process of fat reduction through cool sculpting and we will answer these questions to make decisions easy for you.

CoolSculpting gets rid of your unwanted fat for good. This gives you lasting results and a natural aesthetic.
