CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment that is FDA-approved to eliminate unwanted fat in specific areas. It is an excellent addition to our range of aesthetic body treatments. This treatment is specifically designed to target and reduce fat in stubborn problem areas in individuals who are otherwise in good health. The most commonly treated areas include love handles, flanks, back, abdomen, arms, buttocks, thighs, hips and under the chin. Cryolipolysis, also known as CoolSculpting uses patented cooling technology to deliver precise, targeted, and controlled “cooling” to the treatment areas. The temperature used in this process only affects the fat cells, ensuring no harm is caused to surrounding tissue, nerves, or cells. The destroyed fat cells are then naturally eliminated from the body through its natural metabolic process, typically over several weeks. As a result, individuals can achieve a leaner and tighter body. Many individuals experience a reduction in waist size. Others reduce the size of their arms or legs, improving the appearance and proportion of their bodies.

These freezing treatments have gained popularity for both men and women of any age. Numerous studies and research have been conducted on this groundbreaking technology. Our practice has been at the forefront of using CoolSculpting since 2010, making us one of the pioneers in the United States and NYC. With our extensive experience in these freezing techniques, our dedicated staff can create personalized treatment plans tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient.

CoolSculpting requires no needles, incisions, scars, or anesthetic. No surgeon is needed. It is gentle and entirely non-invasive, no surgery or anesthesia is needed, which means no downtime or recovery and little risk of the side effects often associated with other body contouring surgical procedures, like liposuction. This freezing procedure is safe, effective, fast, painless, and simple, lasting as little as one hour. It is so comfortable, that you can relax, read a book, watch a movie, rest, or even take a nap while the technology works its magic. The results, which are often visible within 2–4 months after the procedure, are permanent.

What is the procedure for CoolSculpting?

A skilled technician who is a specialist in CoolSculpting will apply a cooling gel to the designated area and attach the applicators for the treatment. This procedure is not associated with any pain. The patient may experience a cool sensation with low temperatures on their skin, but warm blankets will be provided to ensure their comfort, along with a hot beverage. As time passes, the cold sensations will dissipate as the skin becomes numb. Following the removal of the applicator, a gentle massage of the treated area will be conducted. Your safety and comfort are of the utmost concern.

What is the duration of each treatment session of CoolSculpting?

The duration of each session can vary, ranging from 35 minutes to over an hour and a half depending upon the specific area of your body that is being treated.

How much fat is destroyed in each session of CoolSculpting?

During every CoolSculpting session, approximately 20 to 25% of targeted fat is eliminated through the process of fat freezing.

How many CoolSculpting sessions are needed?

Typically, two treatment sessions are necessary for each treatment area, with a one-month interval between them.

What are the possible side effects of CoolSculpting?

Individuals may experience symptoms such as redness, swelling, and mild bruising, which typically subside within a few days to a week. Occasionally, patients may report tingling or tenderness resembling the aftermath of an intense workout, following the freezing session. In some cases, temporary numbness may occur, but it usually resolves within weeks to months. This procedure does not result in any scarring.

Is there any special care for the skin after CoolSulpting?

It is best to use a mild cleanser and avoid products containing acids, as they can be irritating to the skin.

What is the cost of CoolSculpting?

For anyone considering CoolSculpting, it is highly recommended to schedule an appointment for a complimentary consultation. During this visit, one of our team members will assess whether you are an ideal candidate for the procedure. Not everyone is the best candidate for this fat reduction treatment, as it varies based on factors such as weight, skin quality, laxity, and lifestyle. Our team of experts will create a thorough treatment plan, address any questions you may have, discuss your concerns, goals, and expectations, and provide you with instructions, consent forms, advice, tips, and the precise cost.

Do I have to limit my activities after CoolSculpting?

After undergoing CoolSculpting, you can resume your regular activities. It will not be necessary to make changes to your routine, and you can safely resume your fitness routine immediately following the procedure.

Can CoolSculpting improve a double chin?

This particular device is equipped with a unique applicator specifically designed for a small amount of fat under the chin. It is effective in reducing fat in this specific area, defining the jawline, and enhancing the beauty of the face. The treatment requires two sessions, with a one-month interval between each treatment. The CoolSculpting procedure also results in some skin tightening. If there is still some laxity in the skin, radiofrequency can be used in another treatment session to stimulate collagen production. The options for radiofrequency treatment include Tempsure Envi, Thermage CPT, or Excilis. Radiofrequency is helpful in skin rejuvenation. These can also be used in combination with a facelift.

Can CoolSculpting be used for fat bulges near the knees?

Each knee is treated separately using a small handpiece. The procedure is safe and effective, aiming to enhance the shape and contour of the knees. It can be used with confidence in this specific location.

Can CoolSculpting be used for weight loss?

CoolSculpting does not serve as a method for weight loss. It is a technique designed to reduce and eliminate fat in targeted areas of the body.

How do I maintain CoolSculpting?

To maintain your health and well-being, it is crucial to follow good guidelines for diet and exercise. Our patients who have achieved the greatest success in maintaining their CoolSculpting results consistently engage in gym workouts and physical activity to maintain their muscle mass. Good nutrition includes eating foods like lean protein, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains while minimizing the consumption of processed sugar. They drink plenty of water and get adequate sleep. We strongly urge you to maintain a healthy body weight after this treatment and avoid weight gain. Maintain healthy habits to maintain your new form.

Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

  • Patients close to their goal body weight
  • Patients who want to sculpt some fat
  • Extra belly fat
  • Small fat deposits
  • Double chin
  • Localized pockets of fat
  • Back fat from menopause (hormones)
  • Male breasts
  • Inner thighs

These patients are content with their results.

Who are not candidates for CoolSculpting?

  • People with obesity and excessive body fat
  • Patients with cold urticaria (hives from cold)
  • Patients with cryoglobulinemia (blood thickens in the cold)
  • Clients with loose, sagging skin
  • Large surface area of body fat

Women who have had multiple children and who have loose sagging skin and some belly fat may want to choose another option. They are better candidates for a tummy tuck and plastic surgery. We work with other surgeons and doctors and can give you the appropriate referrals to these providers.

How do I pick a doctor for CoolSculpting?

Search for physicians who possess extensive expertise in using CoolSculpting. Examine before and after images to assess the effectiveness of their work. It is advisable to seek recommendations from family, friends, and other medical professionals. While browsing online, you may come across Google advertisements for CoolSculpting and other related services. Not every clinic or provider that possesses machines or a cooling system will necessarily have the skill to deliver the best results. The way the applicator is applied plays a significant role in the outcome of the procedure. Each area of the body may need a different type of applicator, which in turn affects the outcome. It is recommended to look for a skincare center that offers all types of applicators, providing the staff with the option to choose the most suitable one for each case.

Does Medical Insurance cover CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is considered an aesthetic procedure meant to improve your appearance and is not covered by medical insurance. The cost will be discussed in detail and the number of sessions will be determined.
