Rox Anderson, MD, to understand that ice can selectively damage small pockets of fat cells and cause the fatty tissues to crystallise when exposed to cold temperatures.
The idea that cold can target fat cells—without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue1—was the insight that led to the discovery of cryolipolysis, the science on which the CoolSculpting® therapy is based. Here’s why so many people are raving about it:
