Years ago, scientists at Harvard University observed that some children who ate popsicles got dimples in their cheeks. The scientists—Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD—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.
The CoolSculpting procedure safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
The science is proven. The technology is proven. After many years of research, you can feel confident that the CoolSculpting procedure is based on sound science. Leading researchers and doctors have published more than 60 scientific and clinical journal papers, medical meeting posters, and technical reports about Cryolipolysis.
