The Non-Surgical Fat Reduction Treatment
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved fat-reduction treatment that was invented in 2007, and millions of sessions have been performed since then. This procedure is one of the best non-surgical contouring treatments available. At Dvida Spa, our experts frequently perform CoolSculpting for Chicago patients.
How Was CoolSculpting Created?
Years ago, physicians came across the discovery that when a patient endured an injury to the body the shape of the injured area would change after heeling. This area that was bruised would look flatter over time. This is because there was damage to the fat and fat is more susceptible to injury than muscle or skin. Fat typically has poor blood supply and does not heal as well as other tissues.
Physicians also came across the discovery that children who ate too many popsicles began to form dimples in their cheeks. This is how CoolSculpting came to fruition. Scientists at Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital used these two theories to create the CoolSculpting procedure. Fat solidifies at freezing temperatures. When the fat cell is frozen, the cell walls break and the fat cells actually die, causing the treated area to become flatter.
The CoolSculpting Procedure
The CoolSculpting procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle.
What does it mean to freeze your fat away? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
- Despite diet and exercise, fat cells accumulate in the body and can be very tough to get rid of.
- CoolSculpting technology uses controlled cooling (cryolipolysis) to target, freeze, and kill only these fat cells.
- In the weeks to follow, these fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body.
- CoolSculpting results are long-term, since treated fat cells are gone for good.
