It all started with some Harvard researchers observing children eating popsicles. They noticed that the children frequently got dimples in their cheeks where the frosty treats had frozen pockets of fat cells and left dimples in their place. The idea that cold could target fat cells without damaging the surrounding skin or tissue was the inspiration for CoolSculpting®, also known as cryolipolysis.
CoolSculpting® first got its FDA-approval for the reduction of fat in 2010, it has become one of the most popular non-invasive options for fat reduction. It has truly been a game-changer in the body sculpting world.
