How does cool sculpting work?

Cool sculpting is based on the science of cryolipolysis. Cryolipolisis is the medical process that destroys fat cells through freezing. During treatment, a special tool is used to freeze the fat cells in the targeted area.

This cooling is done at temperatures between 41 to 23 degrees Fahrenheit. The temperature at this level is set to get rid of the subcutaneous fat tissues.

Does cool sculpting reduce weight?

Most times, people feel that reducing fat as the same as reducing weight, but it is not the same thing. Losing weight makes fat cells smaller. In addition, losing weight does not make the fat cells go away.

During the teenage years, the number of cells in the bodies naturally becomes a fixed number. But, during this period, losing or gaining weight does not affect the number of fat cells in the body. However, it changes the size of at cells in the body. When you go on a diet to reduce weight, the fat cells get smaller. But this doesn’t change the number of fat cells.
