The Odd Start of CoolSculpting Treatment in Pearl River NY

Two doctors, Dr. Rox Anderson and Dr. Dieter Manstein, were aware of an odd phenomenon called “popsicle panniculitis”, where cheek fat is lost in children who frequently suck on popsicles. They also had heard a very odd story about a woman who rode naked on horseback in a snow storm, she claimed the fat on her inner thighs decreased after that ride. This resulted in their experimenting with freezing temperatures on various body tissue, finally coming to the conclusion that fat cells are much more affected by freezing at a specific temperature than nerve, skin, muscle and other body tissues. Then they were able to pinpoint the actual temperature that fat cells would die, hence cryolipolysis was born.


The procedure was perfected and machinery created to provide the least discomfort possible. There is a cold feeling until the skin numbs, there may be some pinching if the fatty areas need to be drawn into the machine, but most people relax and use the time to read or take care of some business via email or take a nap. In about one hour the procedure is complete, but results won’t show until a few days and weeks later, as the body slowly finds and removes the dead fat cells. In one treatment about 25% of the fat in the area is frozen and killed off.


If you are near your goal weight and you are frustrated with the lack of progress you are getting with those fatty pads on your belly, waist, thighs, and upper arms, you may want to consider CoolSculpting to spot trim your trouble areas.
