Cryolipolysis | The Facts about Non-Invasive Fat Freezing

Cryolipolysis is the scientific process behind the most popular non-invasive fat reduction treatment, CoolSculpting. In simple terms, Cryolipolysis reduces fat cells by exposing them to highly controlled temperatures. When you break down the word, “cryo” means cold, “lipo” means fat, and “lysis” is a process of cell destruction.

This advanced science is proven to reduce stubborn fat deposits that resist diet and exercise. Treatment results are natural and long-lasting and provide long-term solutions for excess fat in problem areas like the lower stomach, inner thighs, double chin, upper arms, and more.

Read on to learn more about Cryolipolysis and determine if CoolSculpting is right for your body.

What is CoolSculpting?

To understand Cryolipolysis, it helps to understand how CoolSculpting works. During a fat-freezing treatment, a proprietary applicator is placed over the stubborn bulge of fat. The technician will turn on the CoolSculpting machine, and the skin is gently sucked into the applicator. The gentle suction mechanism draws the subcutaneous fat cells to the skin’s surface, where they are exposed to the calibrated cooling science of Cryolipolysis.

This extreme cooling temperature freezes the fat cells, causing their membranes to rupture and die. Treatment times can last as little as 35 minutes and are virtually painless with no downtime.

Weeks after your treatment, the body naturally gathers the dead cells. It expels them from the body as waste through the lymphatic system.

The Science Behind CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting reduces resistant fat areas with the use of Cryolipolysis. In the scientific paper titled “Cryolipolysis For Noninvasive Body Contouring: Clinical Efficacy And Patient Satisfaction. Researcher Nils Krueger explains this process: “Cryolipolysis exploits the principle that adipocytes [fat cells] are more susceptible to cooling than other skin cells. The precise application of cold temperatures triggers apoptosis [cell death] of the adipocytes, which invokes [a response from the immune system, which] leads to slow digestion by surrounding macrophages [the white blood cells that rid the body of waste.].”

Cryolipolysis results in dramatic fat-reduction results. Nils Krueger’s study showed a 25% reduction in fat after just one session. Because the fat cells are removed from the body and cannot grow back, there is a long-term fat reduction after fat freezing.
