Why is Coolsculpting better than ever?

Coolsculpting became popular in the United States around 2011, shortly after the procedure was approved in 46 countries. The non-invasive, fat-freezing process remained virtually unchanged for years, until it was revolutionized in 2017 with the introduction of the CoolAdvantage applicator.

With its redesigned cup and colder temperatures, the procedure can now be performed in half the time…as little as 35 minutes in most cases. Plus, it covers a larger surface area and less suction needs to be applied.

Perhaps most importantly, patients at Metropolitan Dermatology are reporting that the Coolsculpting procedure is much more comfortable and they are experiencing less bruising and pain afterward. The CoolAdvantage applicator has really been a game changer.

What is Cryolipolysis?

As its name implies, cryolipolysis is a procedure that freezes fat. When cold temperatures (-11 to 5 degrees C) are applied to an area of the skin it kills the fat cells below without doing any damage to the skin itself. Fat cells die at a higher temperature than surrounding tissues, which is what led to the discovery of Coolsculpting.

What kind of results can I expect with Coolsculpting?

It’s important to understand that Coolsculpting results are not instantaneous. The reason for this is that it takes some time for your body to process and eliminate the dead fat cells.The slimming results will typically be observed over the first 90 days and we often recommend 2-3 appointments spread out over time to get the best results. For example if you want to get the body you want for Summer we would recommend that you get started with your Coolsculpting treatments sometime in the Spring.

Is Coolsculpting worth it according to reviews?

The latest reviews reveal that 75% of patients who had the Coolsculpting procedure say it’s worth it according to Realself.com. This is based on a sample size of over 4,400 people according to realself.com, so it gives you a good indication of whether or not the procedure is worth undergoing. Results vary from patient to patient.

What is the average cost in New Jersey and Staten Island?

The cost for Coolsculpting in Staten Island and in New Jersey will be in the range of $750 to $4,000 depending on the number of cycles that are recommended to reach your goals and the areas you want treated. However, the more cycles you purchase the cheaper it is for you per cycle and we offer special discounts to our patients throughout the year.

How long do the results last?

You can expect results to last indefinitely as once the Coolsculpting procedure freezes and kills the fat cells they don’t return. However, if you gain weight after the procedure you may develop new fat cells in those treated areas.

What areas of the body can Coolsculpting treat?

Coolsculpting is FDA cleared for fat reduction treatments on several areas of the body including the lower stomach, abdomen, love handles, the back, upper arms, Inner and outer thighs and “Cool Mini” for the double chin.
Lower abdomen (belly fat)

Applicator: CoolMax

We recommend 1-3 treatments for maximum effectiveness.A larger applicator is required to effectively treat the lower abdominal area. As such we use CoolMax, which targets bulky fat deposits. For most patients two to six cycles are ideal.

Upper abdomen

Applicator: CoolCoreWe recommend 2-4 treatments for maximum effectiveness.

Whereas the lower abdomen requires the larger CoolMax applicator, the upper abdomen is best treated with the smaller CoolCore applicator. Costs and recommended number of treatment are similar, with two office visits being ideal for most of our patients.

Love handles

Applicator: CoolCurve and CoolCore

We recommend 1-4 cycles per side for maximum effectiveness.

Attacking the flanks/sides, commonly called the love handles, requires a two-prong approach. CoolCurve is used to reduce fat in the curved areas and CoolCore is used for more precise sculpting in the area.

Back of arms

Applicator: CoolFitWe recommend 1-2 treatments for maximum effectiveness.

In the upper arm area CoolFit is the best treatment option for freezing and killing fat deposits. We can typically treat both arms in a single session.

Inner and outer thighs

Applicator: CoolFit, CoolCurve, CoolSmooth PROWe typically recommend 1-4 cycles per leg for maximum effectiveness.

CoolFit is designed for longer areas and can effectively eliminate cellulite in the inner thighs. CoolCurve is ideal for smaller regions of fat. For the outer thighs, CoolSmooth PRO will remove fat and give you a slimmer appearance. Treatments for inner and outer thigh can be performed in one or two office visits.
