Cryolipolysis is leading the pack in new body contouring technologies, which aim to reduce fat and produce a slimming effect. “Fat freezing” or “CoolSculpting” gradually targets layers of fat using apoptosis, or the programmed removal of cells, without disturbing the surrounding tissue. A layer of gel is placed over the skin, and then the cryolipolysis machine cools those parts of the tissue, causing fat cells to crystalize. These cells are then eliminated naturally through the immune system. The treatment results in gradual, natural-looking body slimming and skin tightening, creating a more sculpted appearance.
