CoolSculpting Science: How Freezing Fat Works
Brad Hauser, Vice President, R&D and General Manager for CoolSculpting explained how the concept was first originated. "It was two forward-thinking scientists at Harvard University, Drs. Dieter Manstein and R. Rox Anderson, that began investigating cold-induced injury to fat cells after reading an early case report of popsicle panniculitis in the New England Journal of Medicine."
"It was observed that a child developed inflammation in the subcutaneous fat and a resulting dimple after having a popsicle rest on the inside of her cheek," Hauser explained."
"It was Drs. Manstein and Anderson's research that led to Cryolipolysis®, the now proven science behind more than 5 million CoolSculpting treatments, where cold targets and kills fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue."
"Patients typically see a 20 – 25 percent reduction of fat cells in the treated area."

The Doctor's Opinion on CoolSculpting
Dr. Marmur shared some of the CoolSculpting results she's seen with patients.
"CoolSculpting is a great option, given its short treatment time of 35 minutes, FDA-clearance on multiple body parts and the ability to treat multiple areas at once to maximize my patients' time in the office."
"Both female and male patients are interested in CoolSculpting and the aesthetics field in general is experiencing an increase in men seeking treatments, especially non-invasive fat reduction like CoolSculpting."
Debra Messing's CoolSculpting results have positively impacted her in numerous ways. Debra feels a difference in the way her clothes fit; plus, she's experienced an extra boost of confidence.
