How fat is eliminated after Cool Sculpting

Coolsculpting permanently removes body fat. The process “grabs and holds” bulges of body fat with a suction applicator then cools the deep tissue to temperatures that result in death of fat cells which are far more sensitive to the low temperatures than the other tissues of the body. Skin, blood vessels, and healthy muscle fibers are preserved. The term for this specific programed cell death is “cryolipolysis” from the prefix “cryo” that means “cold” and the word “lypolysis” which means “breakdown of fat”. All destroyed components of the cell are taken up and eliminated through the lymph system and permanently eliminated. Fat is not reabsorbed. The treatment results in fat reduction in targeted areas and the re-sculpting of the anatomy.
