coolsculptingThere’s little doubt that you’ve seen advertisements for CoolSculpting® on television or in magazines as the new way to achieve a sculpted physique. CoolSculpting® has gained significant popularity since its approval by the FDA and is proving to be the leading procedure for non-invasive fat removal today.

How Does CoolSculpting® Work?

CoolSculpting® uses an applicator to freeze away unwanted fat cells. The cold temperature breaks down and kills the fat cells, leaving the healthy tissue untouched. These damaged fat cells then exit the body naturally. CoolSculpting® treats the abdomen, love handles, arms, thighs, and chin, and patients can see up to a 20 percent reduction in fatty tissue over four to six months.

What Are the Benefits of CoolSculpting® Compared to Other Cosmetic Procedures?

There are several cosmetic surgeries available that reduce stubborn fat (liposuction and tummy tucks among them). So what does CoolSculpting® offer that they do not? CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive procedure that has gained popularity not only for its results but also for its range of benefits, including:

  • No downtime
  • No scarring
  • No restrictions on activities or work—resume your daily life immediately
  • No pain—only minor soreness or tightness
  • No risk

Is CoolSculpting® For Me?

CoolSculpting® is not designed as a substitute for diet and exercise and is not a weight loss program. Instead, it helps both men and women who are at or near their ideal weight eliminate the stubborn fat pockets that are resistant to exercise and a healthy diet. The best candidates are healthy individuals who have good skin elasticity.

If you are interested in saying goodbye to your stubborn pockets of fat, CoolSculpting® may be the answer you’ve been looking for. Set up a consultation with Dr. Coleman today! Call us at (212) 571-5200 or fill out our online contact form.
