How Does CoolSculpting Work? The Science of Fat Freezing
Simply freezing away fat may seem too good to be true. Thus, many adults are asking, does CoolSculpting work, and if so, how? The revolutionary fat reduction treatment eliminates stubborn fat cells by exposing them to precisely controlled cooling. Learn more about the science of freezing fat, and read clinical findings for a definitive answer to those asking ‘does CoolSculpting work.’
HOW DOES COOLSCULPTING WORK?
CoolSculpting works using a scientifically proven method known as Cryolipolysis. During the 35-minute procedure, stubborn bulges are subjected to extreme cooling. This freezes the fat cells lying below the skin, causing them to rupture. The destroyed fat cells eventually process out of the body as waste. This causes a visible reduction in fat.
