CoolSculpting for Body Contouring Without Liposuction

While diet and exercise are the healthiest and most effective ways to lose weight, there are some areas where fat will not go away, despite your healthy regime. Fortunately, there is a way to safely eliminate this stubborn fat, so you can feel confident in your own skin.

New York Cosmetic, Skin & Laser Surgery Center offers CoolSculpting in Long Island and NYC to provide our patients with cool technology that offers even cooler results. Dr. Rokhsar was among the first specialists to perform this treatment in NYC and Long Island, so contact us today if you want to learn more.

CoolSculpting is a revolutionary nonsurgical solution to eliminate stubborn body fat. This contouring treatment does not require needles, diets, supplements or surgery to remove unwanted deposits. The CoolSculpting process involves freezing the fat, so it can be naturally eliminated from the body. The fat cells are frozen and metabolized naturally by the body over the next few weeks.

The procedure is performed in our New York office and there is no downtime, so your life will be completely uninterrupted.

Firmer Skin, Less Fat: Redefine Your Chin with CoolSculpting

Excess fat beneath the chin, or submental fat, is a common complaint among men and women, both young and mature. Famously difficult to treat, a double chin can be a persistent source of frustration, even for those who are not overweight. Before the advent of non-surgical fat-reduction technologies, liposuction was the only cosmetic treatment that could reliably reduce fat in the chin area.

Today, CoolSculpting offers patients an effective alternative to surgical chin fat removal. Best of all, CoolSculpting comes with an added benefit: it the first and only fat-reduction technology that is FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of sagging skin associated with a double chin. A series of treatments can help bring definition to your jawline and neck area, enhancing the overall balance of your facial features.

Benefits of CoolSculpting®

Coolsculpting works by suctioning cooling plates to the target areas of excess fat and freezing them so your body can safely metabolize the fat away over a period of about 4 months.

While this is not intended as a solution for obesity, it is very effective in treating areas of stubborn fat that resist diet and exercise. Between 20-25% of the fat in the treated area is ultimately metabolized with 90% of people treated seeing an undeniable physical reduction of fat after just one treatment.

This treatment is a fast, safe, and effective fat reduction procedure that allows Dr. Rokhsar to eliminate difficult-to-treat deposits. Some of the benefits of this procedure include:

  • The only fat freezing technology recommended by the FDA
  • Produces natural and gradual results that boost confidence
  • Zero risks of injury or side effects like with liposuction
  • No need for anesthesia, so there is no chance of suffering nerve damage
  • Resume regularly scheduled activities immediately following CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting is Safe and Effective

Whenever we hear the word “surgery” our natural response is to cringe. Despite the many advances in surgical techniques over the years, we still have that fear of the unknown that gives us pause. Maybe you have some areas of stubborn fat that just will not go away no matter what you do.

Every day, you look at them and want to do something, but the fear of surgery grinds your forward momentum to a halt. If you are reading this and dejectedly nodding “yes”, you may want to consider CoolSculpting. Manhattan cosmetic surgeon Dr. Cameron Rokhsar is an acknowledged expert in CoolSculpting and has helped countless people just like you.

The CoolSculpting technology is an FDA cleared, safe, and effective method for eliminating the fat that will not respond to diet and exercise. The results can easily be seen in the images in the Before and After Gallery below. Results May Vary*

Below is a video animation showing how CoolSculpting works in removing the fat cells in a particular area of your body.

What Should I Expect During and After the Procedure?

Because CoolSculpting is a completely non-surgical procedure, it requires no anesthesia to perform. The targeted area of excess fat will be frozen over the course of about an hour with cooling plates then the procedure is essentially over – your body will do the rest of the work on its own over the coming weeks and months.

Patients typically resume their normal routines and activities the very same day they are treated, so there is no need to worry about downtime like you would with a normal surgical solution.

The Difference Between CoolSculpting and Liposonix

Non-invasive body contouring has become the fat reduction forefront of cosmetic surgery procedures. CoolSculpting and LipoSonix are just two examples of effective non-surgical techniques that allow patients to return to their normal daily activities immediately afterward. Stubborn fat can persist in unflattering pouches along the body.

For those that are just looking for a mild reduction in parts of the body such as the arms, stomach, thighs, and bra line back fat; non-invasive procedures are a great option. Dr. Rokhsar can manipulate fat cells through the skin without damaging the surrounding tissue or skin’s surface.

CoolSculpting is a noninvasive body contouring technique that utilizes the fat cells’ susceptibility to cold temperatures. It works by administering extreme cold temperatures through cooling plates that suction the targeted area for an hour, during which time fat cells are turned from a soft to solid form. During the procedure, the patient is numbed with a topical cream and will only experience some cooling, if any at all.

LipoSonix uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to permanently destroy fat beneath the deepest layer of skin, the dermis. A single 30 to 60-minute session is all it takes, and results will continue to develop over eight to twelve weeks post-procedure.

These body-contouring and sculpting approaches require no downtime for the patient, and instead provide continuing and improving results as the fat is naturally digested through the body. Although both procedures are not solutions for those that are overweight or obese, it can aid in the weight loss process along with diet and exercise, encouraging a new and healthier lifestyle.

Potential Risks and Temporary Side-Effects of CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved treatment that can be used in different parts of the body. There are no significant risks, so the procedure is inherently safe. However, some patients experience temporary side-effects such as a tugging sensation at the treatment site, numbness, and redness.

Why Choose Dr. Rokhsar for CoolSculpting in NYC and Long Island?

The incredible thing about the CoolSculpting® fat-freezing technology is that it permanently removes targeted fat cells, for a beautifully contoured body. NYC dermatologist Dr. Rokhsar is an internationally renowned specialist with a particular focus on aesthetics and body contouring procedures such as CoolSculpting in Long Island.

CoolSculpting FAQs

What is the cost of CoolSculpting in NYC?

Your CoolSculpting treatment cost depends on the amount of treatment requested. Dr. Rokhsar bases treatment costs on the number of applicators used during treatment. Package pricing for a few sessions may help you save money and offer great results. With advanced CoolSculpting machines at our NYC location, Dr. Rokhsar can treat a few areas at once, and all you have to do is relax.

What areas can CoolSculpting target?

We’re proud to give patients some of the best CoolSculpting NYC has to offer. For modest fat reduction and to lose love handles, fat along the back, underarms, stomach, thighs, and other difficult to treat areas, just a few CoolSculpting treatment sessions can make all the difference.

Can I return to my normal routine after CoolSculpting?

Because CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure, patients can return back to their normal routines immediately after the procedure. Even though some patients may experience some redness, minor bruising or numbing in the treated area, but this subsides a short period of time and there is no reason it should disrupt your normal day-to-day activities.

How do cold temperatures destroy fat?

As one of the top NYC body contouring treatments, CoolSculpting destroys fat cells by freezing them away. The extreme cold helps turn stubborn fat deposits into calorie-burning fat, beautifully recontouring the body with cryolipolysis1.

How does CoolSculpting work?

Extreme cold temperatures are emitted through cooling plates and suction the targeted area for an hour, during which time fat cells are turned from a soft to solid form. The body then naturally metabolizes the frozen fat out of the body and results begin to show within four months post-treatment.

What can CoolSculpting do for me?

For those with stubborn, exercise-resistant fat, CoolSculpting is an ideal treatment choice. There are areas on the body where fat accumulates and becomes hard to get rid of. CoolSculpting is also an ideal procedure for those who are opposed to surgery and live an active lifestyle that doesn’t permit them the downtime that liposuction would require.

When do results show after CoolSculpting?

Results are seen very soon after treatment. Improvement in the treatment area can happen as soon as three weeks afterward and the full benefits are seen about three months afterward. The body will continue digesting and disposing of the fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after the treatment, making it a progressively-improving fat reduction procedure.

Does CoolSculpting really work?

Studies2 have reported that CoolSculpting, a nonsurgical technique for fat reduction, shows successful results and less risk when compared to alternatives like liposuction, or other invasive methods. Freezing the fat away is a promising way to reduce fat in stubborn areas of the body.

Is CoolSculpting safe?

As of September 2010, CoolSculpting is FDA-approved3 as a safe way to reduce fat deposits. It gained approval one year prior to reduce discomfort during laser and dermatologic procedures by cooling skin and tissue. A number of studies have been conducted on CoolSculpting, ensuring the body-contouring treatment:

  • Does not increase levels of cholesterol or fat in the blood
  • Does not harm the surrounding skin or tissue in the treatment area
  • Allows you to avoid potential complications of surgery
  • Offers fat reduction with ZERO downtime

Are CoolSculpting results permanent?

The duration of the results completely depends on the patient’s lifestyle. The fat cells are flushed out of the body through the natural elimination process, which means as long as the patient is willing to maintain a healthy lifestyle that will not incur more fat cells, the results can be long-lasting. Take the first step towards a body you’ll love!

How long does CoolSculpting take?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure that uses controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate fat cells. The treatment duration typically depends on the targeted area, and most treatments take around 35-60 minutes.

During the procedure, the device holds the part of your body you want to target between two paddles, and the paddles cool quickly. The device stays in place for about 35 minutes to 1 hour and 15 minutes, depending on the area being treated. There is no downtime because there is no damage to the skin, and you can resume your daily activities immediately following your treatment session.

After the treatment, the body naturally expels the dead fat cells, and you can expect to see a reduction in fat within three to six weeks. Final results may take up to six months to appear. Some patients may require additional sessions to achieve their desired results.

How many CoolSculpting treatments are needed?

The number of CoolSculpting treatments needed varies from person to person depending on several factors. These factors include the area being treated, the number of fat cells in that area, and the desired outcome. Generally, patients may need anywhere from one to four treatments per target area.

For smaller areas with less fat, such as the chin, one treatment session may be enough to achieve the desired results. However, for larger areas like the abdomen or thighs, it may take two or three treatments. CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss solution, and it won’t help you lose significant amounts of weight. It is meant for targeted fat reduction and body contouring.

It is typically recommended 1-3 treatments per area, spaced about 60-90 days apart. During each session, patients receive a specified number of treatments to their most troublesome area. A treatment consists of one cooling cycle using one CoolSculpting applicator.

How long does CoolSculpting last?

The results of CoolSculpting can last indefinitely. This is because the treatment destroys the targeted fat cells, and they do not regenerate. However, CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss solution, and it does not prevent future weight gain. Therefore, it is essential to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to prevent the enlargement of remaining fat cells or the development of new ones.

The full results of CoolSculpting can take up to four to six months to appear. After eight to ten weeks, approximately 90% of the targeted fat cells may have been eliminated, and the final result can continue to develop for up to six months. CoolSculpting can also be safely repeated in the same area with procedures spaced about three weeks apart, if needed.

How to speed up CoolSculpting results?

One of the most important things to do after a CoolSculpting treatment is to maintain a healthy diet. This means avoiding processed foods, sugary treats, and midnight snacks. Instead, focus on a diet that is high in protein and moderate in carbs. Drinking plenty of water before and after your CoolSculpting session is also essential. Aim to drink at least 100 ounces of water daily to help your body eliminate fat cells faster.

Regular exercise is also essential to a healthy lifestyle and can help speed up CoolSculpting results. Engage in aerobic exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, several times a week to help boost your metabolism and promote the elimination of frozen fat cells.

It is also recommended to avoid wearing tight clothing immediately after a CoolSculpting treatment. Opt for loose clothing to allow for proper blood flow to the treated area.

Lastly, patience is key. It can take several weeks to see the full results of CoolSculpting as your body naturally metabolizes and eliminates fat cells. It is important to continue maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine to avoid the fat cells from building up again.

How much does CoolSculpting cost?

The cost of CoolSculpting treatment varies based on several factors, such as the area of the body being treated, the number of sessions required, and the provider’s location and experience. The cost of CoolSculpting is not typically covered by insurance since it is considered a cosmetic procedure. For those interested in financing options, our office accepts CareCredit. The best way to determine the cost of CoolSculpting for your individual needs is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Cameron Rokhsar. During your consultation with him, you can discuss your goals, learn more about the procedure, and receive a personalized treatment plan and cost estimate.

How old do you have to be to get CoolSculpting?

There is no maximum age limit for undergoing CoolSculpting treatment. However, the minimum age requirement is 18 years old. If a clinic performs CoolSculpting on minors, they will need parental consent. While older patients may have more skin laxity which is not treated with CoolSculpting, younger patients tend to get better results. Ultimately, whether or not CoolSculpting is right for you will depend on various factors, including your overall health, body shape, and individual goals. It’s best to consult with a board-certified dermatologist to determine if CoolSculpting is a good option for you.

What’s better than Coolsculpting for fat loss?

The best way to get rid of fat is through tumescent liposuction under local anesthesia. Dr. Rokhsar is an expert liposuction surgeon who has treated hundreds of liposuction patients successfully for many years. The areas of concern are first numbed with a local anesthetic called tumescent solution. This solution stops bleeding and numbs the areas of concern. Dr. Rokhsar inserts tiny cannula under the skin to suction the fat in a thorough way. The holes are so small that oftentimes they require no suturing. The procedure may take 1-4 hours depending on how large the area of liposuction is. Compression garments are worn for 3-7 days depending on the area being treated. Patients can get back to their routine with this technique within a few days.

Potential Risks and Temporary Side-Effects of CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved treatment that can be used in different parts of the body. There are no significant risks, so the procedure is inherently safe. However, some patients experience temporary side-effects such as a tugging sensation at the treatment site, numbness, redness, and some swelling.
