The Science Behind CoolSculpting®
While exercise is important to maintaining a healthy body weight, many patients often complain about stubborn abdominal fat that never seems to go away. Countless hours at the gym and sit-ups may not always eliminate unwanted abdominal bulges. A solution to this problem is a revolutionary procedure called CoolSculpting®. See the graphic below for an overview:
CoolSculpting® is commonly used to treat those areas of the body that easily accumulate fat – waist (love handles), hips, upper and lower abdomen, bra line and mid-back. The technical name for the body contouring method used by Zeltiq is cryolipolysis, the cooling of the adipose tissue just above the freezing point to induce lipolysis, damaging fat cells but without damaging other tissues. The body then “thinks” the fat has been melted and starts to eliminate it over time by the natural metabolic process.
Research has shown that fat cells respond to extreme cold. This means that they are more vulnerable to cooling than any surrounding tissues. Therefore, they can be selectively eliminated with no pain involved. When cooled just above the freezing point, fat turns from liquid to solid and over the next few weeks after the treatment, that cooled fat will start the apoptosis process, which leads to a release of inflammatory mediators such as cytokines.
Within the next months, these inflammatory cells gradually digest the fat cells. The lipids resulting from those cells are then metabolized like any other food fat – they are transported by the lymphatic system and then processed out of the body. As this happens, the circumference shrinks around the treated body areas.
