Cryolipolysis: Learn about Freezing Fat with CoolSculpting

Cryolipolysis is a scientific method making it the #1 non-surgical alternative to Liposuction. Cryolipolysis stands for “cryo” = cold + “lipo” = fat + “lysis” = cell death. In other words, fat deposits exposed to precise cooling temperatures cause the cell membrane to crystalize and rupture. This results in fat cell destruction.

Also known as fat freezing, Cryolipolysis is scientifically verified to reduce stubborn bulges despite diet and exercise. Results look natural and are long-lasting, providing stellar physiques in areas of the abdomen (belly fat), flanks (love handles), thigh fat, double chins, armpit fat (bra bulge), and more. Read on to learn more about Cryolipolysis and if freezing away fat through CoolSculpting is the optimal answer for you.

The Discovery of Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis was discovered by Harvard Scientists David Manstein, MD, and R. Rox Anderson, MD. They detected reductions in cheek fat with children who sucked on popsicles; a sensation called popsicle panniculitis.  Dr. Mainstein described the idea of Cryolipolysis to Allure Magazine, stating, “Fat freezes at a higher temperature than water. Think of butter and water in the refrigerator – one is solid, the other remain liquid.” Utilizing the same principle, Dr. Mainstein recognized when exposing fat budges to exact cooling, he could freeze the fat cells while preserving the overlying skin and surrounding tissue. This is because skin cells are mainly composed of water and have a much lower freezing temperature than underlying fat cells.

How Cryolipolysis Works

CoolSculpting successfully reduces difficult bulges through stimulating Cryolipolysis. In a scientific paper titled “Cryolipolysis For Noninvasive Body Contouring: Clinical Efficacy and Patient Satisfaction” Researcher Nils Krueger explains, “The principle behind cryolipolysis exploits the premise that adipocytes [fat cells] are more susceptible to cooling than other skin cells. The precise application of cold temperatures (cold sculpting) triggers apoptosis [cell death] of the adipocytes, [fat cells] which invokes an inflammatory response and leads to slow digestion by surrounding macrophages [the white blood cells that rid the body of waste.]”

To put in more straightforward language, CoolSculpting uses an applicator to target a fat deposit, like belly fat, then exposes that bulge to exact cooling temperatures. These temperatures are cold enough to freeze subcutaneous fat cells, yet not so cold it harms the skin or surrounding tissue. “Frozen” fat cells result in cell death. The fat cells’ freezing disables the cells from storing fat and signals the lymphatic system to collect the destroyed fat cells. This natural process takes several weeks.

Once these destroyed fat cells leave the body, they are gone for good. This creates long-lasting fat reduction results, making it the #1 non-surgical choice over Liposuction. With little downtime, you can treat yourself to a fantastic physique. In addition, the New England Center for Body Sculpting,  the leading provider in Cryolipolysis, offers a complimentary consultation. This appointment will determine whether you’re a good candidate for fat freezing.
