CoolSculpting®, CoolMini™ and CoolAdvantage™ Non-Invasive Fat Reduction at New York Laser & Skin Care
CoolSculpting® by Zeltiq® is a revolutionary, FDA-approved non-invasive treatment that gently and permanently removes stubborn pockets of fat without surgery or down time. Unlike other fat removal methods, there are no needles, no surgery, and no recovery time. Muffin-tops, love handles, double chin (submental) fat, thigh and back fat can be safely and effectively reduced with CoolSculpting. Patients relax, read or work on their laptop during treatment and return to their normal activities –even exercise --immediately after treatment. Maximal results are seen in 2-3 months, but patients may see improvement in their body shape in as little as 3 weeks.
Dr. Kauvar was one of the first of a select group of dermatologists to use Coolsculpting.
Dr. Kauvar performed the very first CoolSculpting “Treat-to-Transformation” procedure in 2009, and you can hear firsthand about our patient’s experience and see her photos below. At New York Laser & Skin Care, we have all the latest applicators -including CoolMax, CoolCore, CoolFit, CoolSmooth and CoolMini, which allows us to target almost any area of the body.
Coolsculpting™ Science – How it Works
Developed by scientists at Harvard, CoolSculpting uses a revolutionary, FDA-approved, non-invasive technology to selectively freeze fat cells without harming healthy tissue and cells. An applicator is applied to an area of unwanted fat, and cooling plates gently freeze fat cells that become crystallized and are naturally eliminated from the body.
What’s New in Coolsculpting?
CoolAdvantage Treatment at New York Laser & Skin Care
CoolAdvantage is the latest advance in Coolsculpting non-invasive body shaping. New York Laser & Skin Care is among the first in New York City to use this breakthrough technology. The CoolAdvantage technology delivers the treatment at a lower temperature, so treatments are faster –approximately 30 minutes, compared to one hour with the original technology. Treatments are also more comfortable with CoolAdvantage due to a redesign of the applicator.
CoolMini™ Double Chin Treatment at New York Laser & Skin Care
The Coolmini was specifically designed to non-invasively treat fat under the chin, also called “submental fat”. The Coolmini uses the same advanced Coolsculting process to reduce fat in the chin area by gently cooling and eliminating fat cells.
In order to achieve the best contouring of the chin and jawline area, Dr. Kauvar will customize your treatment when necessary, by combining other noninvasive tightening and re-contouring methods, including Kybella fat melting injections, Ulthera jawline and neck tightening, fractional laser resurfacing and Botox injections.
Am I a good candidate?
CoolSculpting is the only FDA approved, non-invasive treatment that safely and permanently reduces fat bulges using breakthrough cooling technology. If you have pockets of fat that do not respond to diet or exercise – double chin (submental) fat, love handles, muffin top, hip, abdomen, back or thigh fat – you are a candidate.
How many sessions will I need?
Each treatment requires the attachment of an applicator to the area of fat being targeted. The newest CoolAdvantage applicators remain in place for only 30 minutes – half the amount of time previously required. The number of treatment applications that you will need to achieve your goals will be determined at your consultation visit. We will create a customized treatment plan tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally eliminated from the body. Like liposuction, once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
What does CoolSculpting feel like?
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel some pressure, mild discomfort and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.
Are there any side effects?
During the procedure you may experience a pulling sensation, minor discomfort or numbness. After the treatment, you may have temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, mild pain, tingling or stinging that may last 2 to 3 weeks. Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from rare cold-sensitivity disorders called cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria.
Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work or head to the gym right after their CoolSculpting session is over.
When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as soon as 3 weeks after your treatment. The final results are usually visible after 2 months, but you may continue to see continued improvement for up to 6 months.
