Coolsculpting and Fat Freezing

Transform your body with Coolsculpting NY

Are you looking to improve your body contour without surgery? If so, Coolsculpting in NY may be the right treatment for you. CoolSculpting is a patented, non-invasive body-contouring technique that uses fat-freezing technology to reduce fat in targeted areas. This innovative technology is helpful for individuals who have not eliminated unwanted body fat through diet and exercise – even after significant weight loss.

First, here’s what you should know about CoolSculpting NY

CoolSculpting is a popular treatment worldwide. Medical professionals have performed more than eight million CoolSculpting treatments globally. It’s no wonder that the procedure has been embraced by New Yorkers, in the most populated U.S. city – New York. CoolSculpting’s ability to offer long-term results highlights its success, both nationally and internationally.

What is CoolSculpting?

Allergan, the official licensor of the CoolSculpting technology defines its process this way: ‘A scientifically proven way to reduce pockets of fat in trouble spots.’ In fact, CoolSculpting rids the body of stubborn fat cells without surgery. This non-invasive FDA-approved, body contouring treatment uses cool temperatures to freeze and eliminate fat cells.

Results can be seen as early as two months after treatment. Many patients experience a 20%-25% reduction in fat throughout the treated area. CoolSculpting in New York is ideal for those who are at or near their ideal goal weight but nonetheless have troublesome fat areas that they would like to eliminate.

The scientific process of cryolipolysis – the process of fat freezing – causes fat cells to die. A cellular response to cold works to break down fatty tissue. The body then naturally flushes these dead cells away. 

Left intact and healthy are the other tissues, muscles, and nerves in the treated area. The process results in a slimmer appearance, several weeks post-procedure. This activity happens beneath the skin’s surface. Once the fat cells die within, your outer appearance reflects the changes in slenderized, targeted areas.

How Does CoolSculpting and Fat Freezing NY Work?

CoolSculpting is known as the world’s best fat-freezing treatment. CoolSculpting procedures work by targeting and freezing subcutaneous fat tissue, just below the skin’s surface. Most areas where fat can be pinched is often a prime area for this fat-freezing technique.

During a CoolSculpting procedure in New York, a non-invasive applicator delivers controlled cooling to the targeted area. The skin and underlying fat are protected from freezing damage by a special gel pad. As the CoolSculpting device cools, many feel an intensely cold sensation for the first few minutes. That feeling is often followed by numbness. The treated area will remain numb for up to an hour as the fat cells are frozen.

After the CoolSculpting procedure is complete, the treated area will be red and bruised. These side effects typically resolve within a few days. Most people see noticeable results after just one treatment. However, some may need two or more treatments to achieve their fat removal goals.

Key CoolSculpting NY (New York): body areas

There are a variety of areas that individuals might consider treating with CoolSculpting. Most individuals seeking this fat-freezing technique know which area, or areas, of the body they would like to remedy.

Arms

Upper arms (‘bingo wings’), lower arms, triceps, or biceps – Underarm fat troubles many women, especially as they age. A specialized CoolSculpting tool, called the CoolMini is an FDA-cleared device that targets small, hard-to-reach areas like the chin, knee and underarm.

Abdomen

The abdomen is a common target area for CoolSculpting treatments. This can include the lower abdomen – ‘muffin top,’ ‘pooch’ or ‘potbelly’ – the upper abdomen above the belly button, or both.

Flanks/sides​

Flanks, or love handles, are the bulges that pop out when wearing tight-waisted, lower-body garments. Love handles can be hard to get rid of with diet and exercise alone. CoolSculpting often eliminates the stubborn fat in locations where previous efforts have been unsuccessful.

Back​

The back, where ‘bra fat’ can be found, is a common trouble spot, especially for women. Fat deposits along the bra line, or back fat, above the waistline and below the shoulder blades can be treated with CoolSculpting.

Buttocks

The CoolSculpting procedure can be performed on the upper buttocks, lower buttocks, or both.

Inner thighs

CoolSculpting on the inner thigh can help you achieve slimmer, more toned thighs.

Outer thighs​

The outer thigh is a common trouble spot for both men and women. CoolSculpting can slim down the area and improve the leg contours.

Double chin/submental area​

The submental space is the fleshy area beneath the chin that tends to become more lax in adults through the aging process. Peri-menopausal women may notice skin beginning to droop in that area. Postmenopausal sagging often alters a once youthful appearance in unwanted ways. The specialized CoolSculpting tool, called the CoolMini, targets small, hard-to-reach, sensitive areas like the chin, knee and underarm.

CoolSculpting preparation in NY

The CoolSculpting / fat freezing treatment in New York process begins with a consultation with a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon who will determine your suitability for the procedure. Healthy individuals, at or near their appropriate body weight are ideal candidates. Other suitability factors should be discussed with your doctor, including your concerns, medical conditions, and goals. Anti-inflammatories, like aspirin should be avoided prior to treatment to help reduce incidences of bruising.

Schedule an appointment with Doctor Roya to begin preparation for your treatment.

Inside a CoolSculpting treatment in New York

Knowing what to expect during a CoolSculpting in New York is an important starting place before a consultation. When you’re informed about some of the steps involved in a CoolSculpting procedure, questions you might not have otherwise thought to ask may come to mind.

First, a gel pad and applicator will be applied to the target area. The applicator cup uses a gentle vacuum pressure to draw tissue into the chamber. There, it will be exposed to controlled cooling.

Many report pulling and tugging sensations and/or mild pinching as the applicator delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat. The treated area will initially feel very cold. This feeling usually subsides within the first five to ten minutes as your skin becomes numb. Most patients tolerate CoolSculpting without anesthesia.

There are no needles or surgical incisions involved. The CoolSculpting treatment time ranges from 35 minutes to one hour. Each treatment reduces the number of fat cells in a specific area by about 20 percent.

The results of a CoolSculpting clinical trial

In a recent clinical trial published by the U.S. National Library of Medicine, scientists treated the abdomen and flanks of 112 participants – 83 women and 29 men. Each participant received at most two treatments, eight weeks apart. The treatments were broken into timed segments, or treatment cycles, followed by a manual massage for two minutes.

Let’s review the factors that qualified individuals to participate in the study. Eligible participants for the trial met the following criteria:

 

  • Abdomen and flanks with clearly visible fat 
  • BMI (body mass index) of 18.5 to 30
  • Weight fluctuations in the preceding month not exceeding 5% of body weight
  • Weight maintenance without diet or exercise alterations during the trial period
  • Photographic documentation of treated areas throughout the trial dates

Clinical trial results

Allergan, the licensor of the CoolSculpting technology, published its trial results in March 2021. Here is a breakdown of clinical trial findings, 12 weeks after the final treatment session:

 

  • Results were evident within 1 to 3 months
  • 20–25% reduction in fat-layer thickness
  • Approximately one inch of fat loss in the treated area was common
  • 84% of trial participants were satisfied with their results, four months post-treatment

CoolSculpting FAQs

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction or a tummy tuck. There is no surgery, no needles and no anesthesia required. The CoolSculpting procedure uses an innovative process to target and freeze visible fat bulges across diverse areas of the body. Some of these areas may be more difficult to target or inaccessible through liposuction or other surgical methods.

There is little to no recovery time following a CoolSculpting procedure. Usually, physicians and medical clinicians approve a patient’s ability to resume normal activities immediately following a procedure. However the following are common treatment aftereffects:

 

  • Soreness/aching; 
  • Redness; 
  • Tenderness and bruising; 
  • Cramping; 

No. In fact, patients should strive not to gain weight following CoolSculpting treatments as additional weight tends to negate, or cancel, benefits achieved from the procedure. Dr Roya can help with weight management after your treatment.

 

While exploring whether the CoolSculpting procedure is an appropriate one for you, you should be sure to discuss any medical conditions such as allergies or sensitivities, pre-existing hernia, or recent surgeries with your physician. Additionally, those diagnosed with cold agglutinin disease, cryoglobulinemia, Raynaud’s disease or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria should not be treated with CoolSculpting.

Arrange an appointment with Doctor Roya if you’re located in the New York City area (Queens, Manhattan, Long Island) to discuss your medical history as you explore the benefits of this groundbreaking treatment.
