How Popsicles and a Naked Horseback Rider Led to a Fat-Loss Treatment Breakthrough

White & pink popsicles

Scientific inspiration can come from strange places. Legend has it that Sir Isaac Newton discovered gravity when an apple hit him on the head. The ancient Greek philosopher Archimedes is said to have discovered an important principle of physics when he lowered himself into a bathtub and saw the water splash out over the side.

CoolSculpting — a scientific marvel of our own time — also has an interesting backstory. Two Harvard scientists observed children getting dimples when they ate frozen popsicles, and it turns out they were losing fat in their cheeks. The scientists also became aware of a story about a naked woman who was riding a horse in the cold and lost fat in her legs.

They put these two odd facts together and realized that exposure to cold could cause a loss of fat. They tinkered around in their labs and found out that fat cells are more sensitive to cold than other types of cells in the body. They were able to find the optimal temperature that was just cold enough to destroy fat cells without harming any of the surrounding tissues.

From these observations, CoolSculpting was born. The CoolSculpting procedure is a fast and non-invasive way to get rid of fat by applying carefully controlled cooling that destroys fat cells. The body then takes over and eliminates the fat cells forever. The procedure is so effective that it can get rid of stubborn fat deposits that people aren’t able to eliminate with diet and exercise.
