Some prefer to name Coolsculpting as the non surgical liposuction technique
The CoolSculpting™ procedure is a new, non-invasive procedure that in conjunction with sensible diet and exercise uses an advanced cooling technology to gently and effectively target and eliminate fat in specific areas of a patient’s body through a proprietary technology called Cryolipolysis™.
This procedure involves no incisions and no anesthesia, and can reduce the fat layer without harming the skin or other tissues. The device-based procedure is designed for use in a medical office specializing in cosmetic procedures.
The scientific principles of Cryolipolysis were discovered by dermatologists Dieter Manstein, MD, and R. Rox Anderson, MD, of the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School.
The physicians and their team conducted research which demonstrated that under carefully controlled conditions, subcutaneous fat cells are naturally more vulnerable to the effects of cold than other surrounding tissue. Their initial work, published in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine in November 2008, showed that:
- Exposure to cooling via energy extraction causes fat cell apoptosis – a natural, controlled cell death which leads to the release of cytokines and other inflammatory mediators that gradually eliminate the affected cells.
- Inflammatory cells gradually digest the affected fat cells in the months after the procedure, reducing the thickness of the fat layer.
- Lipids from the fat cells are slowly released and transported by the lymphatic system to be processed and eliminated, much like that of fat from food.
Based on their research findings, the investigators concluded that “prolonged, controlled local tissue cooling can induce selective fat cell reduction and subsequent loss of subcutaneous fat, without damaging the overlying skin.” This discovery, called “selective Cryolipolysis,” led to the development of the patented technology behind the non-invasive CoolSculpting™ procedure.

The CoolSculpting procedure using Cryolipolysis is fundamentally different from other non- or minimally-invasive modalities. Other methods of fat removal primarily involve necrotic cell death by damaging fat with heat, high-intensity focused ultrasound, or chemical injections. Each approach poses potential technical challenges, particularly with respect to targeting the right tissue depth and 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 procedure using Cryolipolysis induces apoptosis only in fat cells to gently and gradually reduce the fat layer while preserving all other tissue.
|Precisely controlled cooling is applied through the skin to the fat layer.|
|Cooling is maintained for a predetermined time period to damage the fat cells.|
|Fat cells begin a natural removal process that continues for several months.|
|The natural removal of fat cells over time results in gradual fat layer reduction.|
Am I a good candidate?
1. Are you within 10 to 15 pounds of your ideal body weight?
2. Do you have noticeable bulges or bumps that you would like reduced?
3. Do you want subtle, natural-looking results?
4. Do you want a procedure with little to no pain or discomfort?
5. Do you need a procedure with no downtime?
6. Do you prefer a natural process over drugs, chemicals, or surgery?
If you answered yes to four or more of these questions, contact a CoolSculpting centre to see if CoolSculpting may be right for you!
The cost of each cycle is $660 per cycle and each treatment cycle covers an area of 22cm x 15 cm and it takes 60 minutes to complete.
Normally a course of 1-3 treatments with a 6 week interval in between sessions is required.
*Cool Sculpting is not a weight loss substitute and sensible diet and exercise is highly recommended. If in doubt, please consult with your physician regarding this procedure.
