A Simple Observation Led to Industry-Changing Technology

Developed by renowned Harvard University scientists Dieter Manstein, MD, PhD and R. Rox Anderson, MD, the cooling process was born of the observation that some children got dimples due to eating popsicles. The idea that cold can selectively affect fat was the insight behind the proven cryolipolysis science on which the CoolSculpting technology is based.


CoolSculpting cryolipolysis - A Patented Cooling Process

The patented cryolipolysis technology is exclusively licensed from Massachusetts General Hospital.

The CoolSculpting Cryolipolysis Procedure

CoolSculpting cryolipolysis is the non-invasive cooling of adipose tissue to induce lipolysis - the breaking down of fat cells - to reduce body fat without damage to other tissues. The scientific principles of the CoolSculpting cryolipolysis procedure were discovered by dermatologists Dieter Manstein, MD, PhD and R. Rox Anderson, MD, of the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School.


Subcutaneous fat cells are naturally more vulnerable to the effects of cold than surrounding tissue.
