An effective alternative to surgery, Coolsculpting® uses a patented cooling procedure – cryolipolysis – to target and eliminate adipose (fat) cells.
Cryolipolysis is designed for men and women with very localized excess fat and/or fat that is resistant to weight-loss diets and physical exercise. The technique restores your harmonious body shape without having to undergo surgery.
Coolsculpting® only targets fat cells, cooling them down to a temperature that triggers their apoptosis (cell death) without damaging nearby nerve cells or tissues.
Following cell apoptosis, natural physiological processes occur, with dead cells gradually eliminated by macrophages in the weeks after treatment.
The thickness of the adipose (fat) layer gradually and considerably decreases during the three months following treatment, until the appearance stabilizes.
