CoolSculpting ‘freezes’ away fatty tissue, shedding unattractive rolls and lumpy tissue. Getting rid of up to 25% of the fat along your stomach, thighs, or upper arms probably sounds intriguing and almost too-good-to-be-true. Without any incisions or vacuuming cannula, like that used in liposuction, where does the fat go? Rest assured, CoolSculpting is just as amazing as it sounds, using your body’s natural processes to eliminate fat cells.
The Body’s Way of Naturally Eliminating ‘Frozen’ Fat
During the 35-minute CoolSculpting procedure, a contoured applicator is placed over the treatment area, bringing temperatures down to -7º C. The lipids in fat cells cause them to freeze more quickly than healthy tissue, giving the thermoelectric cooling device the power to damage fat, not the surrounding area. Once the treatment is over, the provider will give the target area a short massage and you are free to go about your day.
While you are busy working, picking up the kids from school, or hitting yoga class, your body is working hard to tackle the fatty tissue that was frozen during your CoolSculpting session. The fat cells damaged by the cooling process are attacked by white blood cells, sent to ‘clean up’ the area. The white blood cells then convert the dead fat into triglycerides, that can be metabolized by the liver. Finally, these triglycerides are eliminated from the body through our urine in the coming weeks.
The science behind CoolSculpting, Cryoplipolysis, has been around for years. For decades, doctors have used Cryosurgery, applying intense cold temperatures to specific areas of the body, especially useful in treating certain types of cancer. Although the application is slightly different, the Harvard researchers who discovered this amazing use of Cryoplipolysis knew right away that this treatment would be a game-changer.
