Are you having trouble getting rid of stubborn body fat? Does it seem like no matter how hard you work out or how well you eat, you just can’t get rid of the excess fat?
You are not alone.
Many people follow strict exercise and diet regimens for years and still can’t seem to get rid of that last bit of stubborn fat. In the past, this problem could only be solved by undergoing an invasive surgical treatment like liposuction. Fortunately, there is a relatively new treatment that has been increasing in popularity and is used to effectively reduce fat without the need for surgery or recovery time.
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved fat-reduction treatment that targets otherwise resistant fat cells via controlled cooling. Also known as cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting destroys targeted fat cells by freezing (crystalizing) them. Once they have been frozen, they will eventually break down and automatically leave the body through the liver. This results in your body being more sculpted so you can get the figure you’ve always wanted. The results can last indefinitely if a proper diet and exercise regime is kept up.
CoolSculpting specialists recommend this fat reduction treatment for those interested in losing small amounts of fat that have been resistant to dieting and exercise. Ideally, the best CoolSculpting results are seen by those already within 15 to 20 pounds of their target weight. It can be used to effectively and safely decrease fat in many areas of the body.
Many people choose CoolSculpting in from one of our New York clinics because it is quick, non-invasive, effective, and allows them to get back to enjoying life immediately after each treatment.
The benefits of CoolSculpting are far-reaching and long-lasting. This is likely why CoolSculpting treatments have increased by more than 800 percent since the FDA approved it in 2010. There are many advantages to CoolSculpting, including:
While many people are great candidates for CoolSculpting in New York, it is not designed for everyone. Those that are considered obese or are more than 20 pounds over their targeted weight will likely not see a discernible difference after the treatment.
Furthermore, if you are suffering from conditions such as cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria (PCH), it is not recommended to proceed with treatments like Sculpsure or CoolSculpting.
Additionally, those who have the following conditions (but not limited to) should avoid CoolSculpting, or speak to their physician before seeking the CoolSculpting treatment:

CoolSculpting is a treatment also known as cryolipolysis. During the treatment, a roll of fat is placed or suctioned between two panels. The panels are designed to deliver controlled cooling to the targeted fat cells that lie under the skin. You may feel an initial intense cold feeling as the CoolSculpting treatment begins, but as the area becomes numb, this feeling will soon subside. Once frozen, the fat cells die and are naturally processed through your liver over time.
This process typically takes multiple visits and about 8 to 12 weeks to see major results. The number of visits will be determined by the areas you want to target and an individual’s body type.
Fortunately, there is not much preparation involved before your CoolSculpting appointment. However, it is imperative that your body is healthy and you are within 20 pounds of your targeted weight.
If you are not keen on sitting in a chair for one to three hours with nothing to do, it is recommended that you bring a fully charged cell phone, reading material, handheld video games, etc., to keep yourself entertained while you are going through treatment.
Each CoolSculpting treatment, completed right in our New York office, takes about an hour to complete. After your CoolSculpting treatment has concluded, you may experience slight bruising from the suction around the area that was treated. After a few weeks, you can expect to see defined and clear results. This gives the fat cells enough time to leave the area targeted with CoolSculpting.
There is no downtime associated with the CoolSculpting treatment; this means that if you want to schedule CoolSculpting during an extended lunch break, you can. However, each patient is unique, and you may desire to rest afterward, depending on the area that is treated. It should be noted that there are some potential side effects of CoolSculpting, which can include:
Unlike liposuction, little to no recovery time is required after your CoolSculpting treatment. After your CoolSculpting treatment, you can easily and comfortably hop on the subway or catch an Uber to your next destination.
As mentioned, you may be sore or experience swelling and/or redness in the treated areas after the CoolSculpting treatment. This is normal, and it is recommended that you wear loose clothing that will not make the swelling and/or soreness feel more uncomfortable.
In some cases, you may feel “nerve twinges” three to five days after your treatment. This is just your nerve endings regenerating, and there is typically no need for concern unless it continues for weeks after your treatment.
Remember, your results will typically not be seen until three weeks to four months after the treatment. Be patient during your recovery period. For the best results, it is recommended that you schedule multiple appointments to reach your goals.
Many people use CoolSculpting in New York to target multiple areas of the body. However, this treatment is not made to treat every area. Here are the most common areas of the body that are treated with CoolSculpting:
Additionally, patients often use CoolSculpting to decrease cellulite appearance that can appear on multiple areas of the body. It is important to remember that the larger the area being treated, the more treatments it will likely require.
CoolSculpting treatments actually kill fat cells. This gives them no chance of recovering and remaining as fat on your body. This means the results of the CoolSculpting treatment can last indefinitely.
However, this treatment does not mean new fat cells cannot form. If you gain weight after your CoolSculpting treatment (that’s not muscle), you will likely gain the fat back in the areas that were targeted during treatment. To maximize and maintain the results of CoolSculping, it is recommended that you do the following:
