Cryolipolysis | Everything You Need to Know About Freezing Fat

Cryolipolysis is the scientific technology behind the most popular, non-invasive fat freezing treatment, CoolSculpting. When you break the word down, Cryolipolysis means reducing fat cells with exposure to precisely controlled temperatures. More commonly known as fat freezing, Cryolipolysis is scientifically proven to provide long-term solutions to diet and exercise-resistant fat deposits in areas like the belly or thighs.

Read on to learn more about this advanced technology and determine if fat freezing with CoolSculpting is the right solution for your physique.

The Discovery of Cryolipolysis

This calibrated cooling science was developed by Harvard scientists Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD. These men noticed a reduction in cheek fat among kids who sucked on popsicles, a phenomenon known as popsicle panniculitis.

Dr. Manstein explains the concept of Cryolipolysis. “Fat freezes at a higher temperature than water.” Consider butter and water in the refrigerator – one is solid, the other remains liquid.” The scientists realized that they could freeze the fat cells by exposing fat cells to cold temperatures without freezing or harming overlying tissue or skin. This is possible because skin cells are made primarily of water. Therefore, the skin cells have a much lower freezing temperature than underlying fat cells.

How Cryolipolysis Works

CoolSculpting treatments reduce stubborn bulges of fat by inducing Cryolipolysis. An applicator isolates a fat deposit during the cooling session, such as on the belly fat, and exposes it to specifically measured temperatures.

The temperatures are cold enough to freeze subcutaneous fat cells but not cold enough to freeze or harm neighboring skin or tissue.

Frozen” fat cells crystallize, causing the cell membrane to rupture. The cell then becomes useless and dies. Several weeks after the treatment, your body naturally collects the dead fat cells and expels them as waste. CoolSculpting provides natural-looking, long-term fat reduction. Once eliminated from the body, the fat cells can never grow back.
