How is fat freezing performed and does it burn the skin?


How cold do you have to freeze the fat with a cool Machine for it to really freeze those cells like -10 below? And will it ” burn” the skin being that cold?


The temperatures used in Coolsculpting have been rigorously evaluated to maximize fat reduction while maintaining a substantial safety margin. Continual temperature monitoring is utilized during the treatment to assure safety. During the treatment, the skin reaches about -11 degrees Celsius with the superficial fat getting to about -8 or -9 degrees Celsius and the deeper fat reaching approximately 0 to +4 degrees Celsius. The temperature of the fat is the critical aspect of CoolSculpting to achieve cryolipolysis or fat cell destruction. The special CoolSculpting wipes used on the treatment area lowers the freezing point of the skin and allows the skin to withstand the colder temperatures
