Where Does the Fat From CoolSculpting Go, and is it Worth the Price?
CoolSculpting has a weird history. A few decades ago, two Harvard scientists agreed to find out why kids that ate Popsicles tended to have dimples more often than those that didn’t. It’s one of those origin stories that makes you wonder if you’re falling for some kind of urban legend.
Regardless they managed to get the study funded and quickly discovered that the Dimple/Popsicle phenomenon was due to the fact that outer layer fat cells are destroyed more rapidly than other skin cells, what’s more, destruction begins at a higher temperature.
From this Cryolipolsis, the technology behind CoolSculpting was born; and it’s fat destroying capability is as effective as its origin story is strange.

Once the cells are irrevocably damaged the body’s immune system kicks into gear. It’s a process called apoptosis (pronounced ap-a-toe-sis) and our systems are doing it all day every day. Cell degeneration and death are an important part of a healthy system, we even have cells dedicated to eradicating the waste.
White blood cells, primarily ones called macrophages (pronounced macro-phay-ges), are charged with devouring bacteria and dead cells like the ones produced from the CoolSculpting process.
FDA approved since 2009 it has a (negative side-effect) rate of .01%. This is primarily due to the fact that it works with your body’s normal immune process. Nothing is added or introduced into your body and you already have a system in place to cope with the effect of this type of fat cell elimination.

Fat cells protect us from the cold, similar to the way that blubber insulates marine mammals. Because of this, these cells are the first to be absorbed when surrounding air cools and your body begins to attempt core temperature regulation.
One word of advice, CoolSculpting is not meant to target all of the excess fat on one’s body, particularly bodies that lean toward obesity. Rather, CoolSculpting targets specific areas of stubborn fat that resist diet and exercise. It is not intended for deep layers of fat.
Latent pain in the treatment area is rare but it constitutes the most common complaint when it comes to side effects. It typically occurred around 14 days after treatment and the pain was easily treatable, all study cases resolved without intervention.
What many of our clients love most about fat loss with CoolSculpting is the added ease it gives them in maintaining their ideal weight. Most people don't realize that the number of fat cells in our bodies typically becomes fixed sometime in our teens. Meaning that, for the most part, we don't lose fat cells when we lose weight through diet and exercise, they just flatten-out. With CoolSculpting these fat cells are completely eliminated:
Weight-Loss without CoolSculpting is great, but it does not change the number of fat cells in your body.
After your CoolSculpting treatment is complete you are actually left with fewer fat cells in your body without the monthly gym cost!
It's amazing to think that a little scientific curiosity and a frozen treat lead to such a breakthrough in aesthetic innovation. We're no longer restricted to costly and invasive liposuction when we just need to eliminate some stubborn fat. In fact, CoolSculpting prices are one of the most attractive things about the procedure.
