What is CoolSculpting?
How does CoolSculpting work?
The science behind CoolSculpting
The Science behind Coolsculpting
The science behind Coolsculpting is cryolipolysis. The skin is exposed to a set of temperature of 2-4o C that it causes cell death of subcutaneous fat tissue without apparent damage to the overlying skin. Exposure to cooling causes fat cells apoptosis i.e a natural controlled cell death, which leads to the release of cytokines and other inﬂammatory cells gradually digest the affected fat cells in the months following the procedure, reducing the thickness of the fat layer. Lipids from the fat cells are slowly released and transported by the lymphatic system to be processed and eliminated from the body.
What happens during the CoolSculpting® procedure?
During the CoolSculpting® procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the treatment area leaving surface skin tissue unaffected. The device draws the fat bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm tug and pull.
What do CoolSculpting® by ZELTIQ® treatments feel like?
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates and you can rest comfortably while the device works. Many people read, watch videos, and work on their laptop, or even take a nap during treatment. As a result of the cooling, you may feel some numbness during treatment, and the treatment area may be red afterward, but this usually fades within a few hours.
What kind of results can I expect from CoolSculpting® by ZELTIQ®?
On average, each CoolSculpting® procedure results in a 20%-30% reduction of fat in the treated areas.
