THE SCIENCE OF COOLSCULPTING
What is stubborn fat?
The number of fat cells is set during childhood and adolescence and varies little during adulthood.
Some individuals may have stubborn pockets of fat that are more difficult to reduce despite diet and exercise.
These stubborn pockets may vary greatly from person to person, because we all carry fat in different areas of our bodies.
Farewell treated fat cells.
It’s technical name is cryolipolysis, which is just a science-y way to say fat freezing. Our experts spent years developing the treatment, which features one-of-a-kind technology that quite literally freezes and kills fat cells.
Proven science and real results.
CoolSculpting’s fat-freezing technology gives long-term results that make trouble spots a lot less troubling.* Fat cells don’t like the cold and at a certain temperature they will freeze. Once that happens, your body will naturally eliminate the dead cells in 1-3 months or more, resulting in up to 20%-25% reduction of fat in a treated area.
*Long term results are based on two case reports.
