Cold Sculpt | Freeze Fat Cells with CoolSculpting
Cold Sculpt, also known as CoolSculpting, reduces difficult fat bulges by freezing fat cells to death. This fat reduction treatment provides a successful non-surgical alternative to Liposuction. Best of all, it is FDA cleared and requires little downtime. Furthermore, Coolsculpting results look natural and are long-lasting. We at Metro Laser in Philadelphia provide expertise in the fat freezing process.

The Science of Cold Sculpting Stubborn Budges
Cold Sculpting refers to the CoolSculpting method. A process discovered by a group of Harvard Scientists termed Cryolipolysis freezes fat cells to death while protecting the skin and surrounding tissue. Cryolipolysis stands for “cryo” = cold + “lipo” = fat + “lysis” = cell death and removal. Cold Sculpt is achievable because fat cells are less tolerant of cold temperatures than their neighboring skin cells.
How Does Cold Sculpt Work?
To understand how Cold Sculpt works, visualize sticking a bowl of melted butter and a glass of warm water into the refrigerator. Exposed to freezing temperatures, the butter turns hard, while the water gets cold, yet does not change from a liquid to a solid, like the butter. This reveals how water withstands temperatures that freeze fat.
The same premise holds when relating fat cells to skin cells (which comprise mostly of water.) Skin cells easily tolerate the cold temperature during a Cold Sculpt procedure. However, a fat cell membrane will crystalize and rupture when exposed to precise cooling. This results in the destruction or death of the fat cells. The lymphatic system then gathers these destroyed cells and processes them to prepare excretion as waste from the body.
Cold Sculpt for Long Term Fat Reduction
Weight loss treatments differ from Cold Sculpt or CoolSculpting because such programs only shrink fat cells. During weight loss, fat cells will release a portion of the fat stored in the cell, yet weight gain causes the fat cells to re-expand. Cold Sculpt does not shrink fat deposits. It destroys them, making them non-functional. This alerts the immune (lymphatic) system to expel these obliterated frozen cells from the body. After 8 to 12 weeks following a treatment, the process is complete, and long-term fat reduction results.
