How CoolSculpting Works
CoolSculpting works by cooling the layer of fat under the dermis to a very precise temperature, making this procedure incredibly safe. Underneath the dermis is where the thickest layer of fat cells is present. The cooling process crystallizes these fat cells, causing significant damage to the outer cell walls. Since fat cells freeze at a much higher temperature than the rest of the body, they are the only cells effected. Over time the damaged fat cells begin to deflate and wither away, causing a reduction in size. When this process is repeated with multiple treatments, the result is noticeable inches lost at the treatment site.
