Cryolipolysis | Freezing Fat Cells to Reduce Bulges

Most adults struggle with stubborn fat bulges despite diet and exercise. Before CoolSculpting, the only way to tackle bulges involved Liposuction. However, with the invention of Cryolipolysis, individuals now have another aesthetic method to body shaping. CoolSculpting offers the solution to frustrating bulges through freezing fat cells to death.

The Discovery of Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis was discovered by Harvard Scientists David Manstein, MD, and R. Rox Anderson, MD.  They recognized a reduction in cheek fat when children sucked on popsicles; a response called popsicle panniculitis. Dr. Manstein shared his observation with Allure Magazine, stating, “Fat freezes at a higher temperature than water.” Dr. Manstein realized that he could naturally freeze fat cells when exposing fat deposits to cold temperatures while protecting the overlying skin from injury. Skin cells consist mainly of water, thus maintaining a lower freezing point than underlying skin cells.

How Does Cryolipolysis Work?

Broken down, Cryolipolysis means “cryo” = cold + “lipo” = fat + “lysis” = cell death. Simply put, when fat bulges come in direct contact with exact cooling temperatures, the cell membrane will crystalize and then rupture. Therefore, freezing fat cells causes cell death. The body no longer needs these obliterated cells, and the lymphatic system then excretes them as waste product.

After fat cells leave the body, they do not grow back. They are gone for good. This results in long-term fat reduction.

Freezing Fat Cells is Technique Sensitive

Cold Sculpting fat cells requires experience and skill. During the procedure, a technician places an applicator over a fat deposit. The applicator suctions the fat up into the applicator in preparation for freezing the fat. Next, the CoolSculpting machine freezes the fat cells to death.

Ideal Candidates for Freezing Fat Cells?

Freezing fat is meant for active, healthy men and women who struggle with bulges regardless of diet and exercise. Freezing fat is not meant as a weight loss program, nor is it meant to treat obesity.
