Almost everyone has stubborn areas of fat that don’t seem to budge, regardless of diet and exercise. While staying active and watching what you eat is important for overall health, you can’t control where the fat is deposited in your body. 

Exercise cannot target specific areas for fat loss. For example, crunches don’t necessarily burn belly fat, and running doesn’t necessarily burn thigh fat. Small amounts of fat will be reduced throughout your body, and your genetics play a large role in deciding where the fat is lost. 

Furthermore, we all have billions of fat cells. The number of fat cells that we have stays constant throughout our adult lives, and we do not actually “burn” fat cells away when we lose weight. Rather, the fat cells shrink in size. When we gain weight, our fat cells expand.

The distribution of these cells is fixed from very early in life. It is for this reason that every individual has their own unique fatty proportions based on where their fat cells are genetically distributed in their body. Weight gain leads to more fat in the areas where there are more fat cells, but the proportions generally remain the same for each individual throughout their life.

At Coolspa, we are experts at improving fatty disproportions, and we have all the worthwhile available tools at our disposal. We offer the world’s leading noninvasive method for reducing fatty bulges, CoolSculpting®, as well as liposuction (including under local anesthesia) and other advanced body contouring techniques.

Learn More About CoolSculpting®

The technology behind CoolSculpting® takes advantage of the fact that fat cells are more sensitive to cold than the other types of cells around them. Harvard scientists realized that they could use this science to create a system that visibly reduces unwanted fatty bulges using controlled cold. That is how CoolSculpting®, scientifically called cryolipolysis, was born.

They designed a device that could bring an area of the body down to the exact range of temperatures where fat cells are frozen, but skin and other tissues remain unaffected. In 2010, CoolSculpting® received FDA clearance and took the body sculpting industry by storm.

This safe and effective treatment uses targeted and controlled cooling to effortlessly freeze unwanted fat deposits. The treatment crystallizes the fat cells, causing them irreparable damage. Over the following several weeks, the damaged fat cells are removed from the body by the lymphatic system.  

Treatment is fast, so you can come in for about an hour and be back to work or school the very same day. We have multiple CoolSculpting® devices that can be used to treat several areas at the same time, further reducing your in-office hours. 

The newest CoolSculpting® device, CoolSculpting® Elite, has expanded the ability of CoolSculpting® to treat more areas of the body at once. This new generation of platforms also offers re-engineered applicators that have improved skin contact allowing for even more impressive results as well as increased comfort during treatment.

During your initial visit, your Coolspa CoolSculpting® specialist will learn about your body contouring goals and perform a thorough evaluation of your body type, skin quality, and fat distribution. Your body contouring specialist will then formulate your unique treatment plan.

When you are being prepped for treatment, they will outline your target zones and apply a soothing gel. Next, the CoolSculpting® applicators will be placed carefully over your skin, using vacuum suction to pull the targeted areas of fat inside. Each applicator is computer-monitored with multiple sensors to ensure its proper temperature at all times.

CoolSculpting® treatments take approximately 40 to 75 minutes, depending on which applicators are used. During your appointment, you can lie back and watch TV, read, listen to music, nap, or work on your laptop. 

Once the CoolSculpting® process is complete, you can safely return to your day, knowing you have taken an effective step toward lasting body contouring results. Some clients may experience minor redness, tenderness, and tingling after treatment. However, these side effects tend to be minimal and subside within hours or days. A general sense of numbness over the treated area typically resolves within two to four weeks.

Results from CoolSculpting® will be visible within the first three to four weeks and will continue to improve in the months that follow. After two to four months, most clients will see their full results on display. A single CoolSculpting® treatment results in an average fat reduction to the treated spot of 20-25%! Of course, individual results will vary, with some individuals showing a greater response and others showing less of a response.

Numerous studies on thousands of patients show that those who have at least two rounds of treatment in a given area have a significantly higher satisfaction rate. This is due to the fact that the second treatment improves upon the first and gives more noticeable and pleasing results. Therefore, you can expect us to recommend two to three rounds of treatment for any given area.

The benefits of CoolSculpting® include:

  • Short treatment time of approximately one hour 
  • Non-surgical and non-invasive
  • Little to no downtime
  • No anesthesia required
  • FDA-cleared 
  • 20-25% fat reduction in clinical studies
  • High level of patient satisfaction
  • Gets results where dieting and exercise fail

While CoolSculpting® is highly effective at contouring the body by reducing local fat deposits, it is not considered a weight loss method. The best candidates for CoolSculpting® are within a healthy weight range but have excess fat that creates an aesthetic disproportion. 

To learn more about whether CoolSculpting® is right for your needs, schedule a private consultation with a Coolspa body sculpting expert in the comfort and privacy of our NYC offices.

Dr. David P. Rapaport was one of the earliest adopters of CoolSculpting® in 2010. He appreciated the enormous value of successful body contouring and had been a liposuction expert for decades. He understood the value of having a totally non-invasive but permanent fat-reducing option. 

He also recognized that patients looking for body contouring needed to be treated by experts and given honest advice so they could properly choose between non-invasive CoolSculpting® and minimally invasive liposuction.

Dr. Rapaport, therefore, founded Coolspa in 2014 to create a brand that specifically delivers the best possible body contouring results with CoolSculpting®, as well as offering all other cutting-edge body contouring treatments.

CoolSculpting® treatments at Coolspa are performed by knowledgeable, experienced body contouring specialists who are overseen by board-certified plastic surgeons. Coolspa is New York’s leading medical provider of CoolSculpting®, with well over 25,000 treatments performed! We are so good at what we do that other CoolSculpting® practitioners come to our office for training, and Dr. Rapaport serves as a consultant for the body contouring division of Allergan.

Patient follow-up is also extremely important to us. After you’re treated, we make sure to follow your progress on a continuous basis. A second round of treatment will generally occur six to eight weeks after the first. We like to see our patients again at the three-month mark and, at that time, determine together whether a third round of treatment is appropriate for the same area. You can come back for as many follow-up assessments as you’d like at no additional charge.

We even offer an incredible referral and rewards program so that you can earn discounted and FREE treatments! Ask us for details!
