Why the CoolSculpting cryolipolysis Procedure Is Different
The CoolSculpting® cryolipolysis procedure is fundamentally different from other non- or minimally invasive fat-reduction modalities. Other methods of fat removal primarily involve necrotic cell death by damaging fat with heat or high-intensity focused ultrasound.
Other fat-removal approaches pose potential technical challenges, particularly with respect to targeting the right tissue depth and causing unintended damage to other structures close to or within the fat layer. Predictability of efficacy using these other techniques is also uncertain. In contrast, the CoolSculpting® cryolipolysis procedure induces apoptosis in fat cells only to gently and gradually reduce the fat layer while preserving all other tissue.
The differences between heat-based technologies and freezing fat cells with CoolSculpting® technology could not be more extreme.
Freeze-Detection Technology –Built-in freeze-detection sensors and software monitor changes in skin, shutting down automatically if a freeze is detected.
Patented Gelpad –A thermal coupling gelpad is applied to the surface before the applicator to ensure consistent thermal contact during treatment.

It is also FDA-cleared to affect the appearance of lax tissue with submental area treatments. With CoolSculpting® treatment for a double chin, patients see results after just 1 to 2 visits. And with no surgery, and little to no downtime. See Lose Your Double Chin for more details.
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Check out the How It Works of the CoolSculpting® procedure to learn more.
