The History of CoolSculpting

As the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat, CoolSculpting has become one of the most popular and highly-sought cosmetic procedures available. It has even won New Beauty awards five years in a row. But how did this sensation begin?

An Idea Inspired By Popsicle Panniculitis

Two doctors, Dr. Rox Anderson and Dr. Dieter Manstein, developed the idea for CoolSculpting. The two Harvard Medical School doctors observed the phenomenon known as “popsicle panniculitis,” which causes the loss of cheek fat while sucking a frozen popsicle. They wondered if applying cold to other parts of the body could have the same reaction.

Dr. Anderson and Dr. Manstein performed experiments and determined that fat is more sensitive to cold than nerves, muscle, skin, or any other type of body tissue. They continued their investigation and identified the specific temperature that enables maximum fat destruction without damaging any other surrounding tissue. This process is now known as cryolipolysis.

How Does Cryolipolysis Work?

Cryolipolysis achieves non-invasive fat reduction by exposing fat cells to extremely cold temperatures. The cold fatally injures the targeted fat cells so they die and can be gradually removed from the body. Thanks to the body’s natural detoxification system, it removes the dead fat cells without increasing cholesterol or lipid levels in the blood.

Is CoolSculpting Right For You?

Today, cryolipolysis is better known as CoolSculpting. It helps men and women alike combat stubborn fat bulges that do not respond to exercise or healthy eating. More than 6 million CoolSculpting treatments have been completed worldwide, and that number climbs each day. CoolSculpting could be the best fat-reduction treatment for you if you can relate to the following:

  • You want a treatment that achieves results without surgery
  • You want to eliminate specific bulges of fat from your body
  • You don’t want to deal with a long recovery period or discomfort after your treatment
  • You want a treatment that reshapes your body without anesthesia
  • You want to minimize fat on your abdomen, double chin, back, arms, hips, thighs, or buttocks
