CoolSculpting a Double Chin

For many people who have a double chin, it seems to be the only thing they see when looking into the mirror. If you are one of these people, you may be wondering how you can get a more contoured neck. The answer to that is CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting a double chin can result in a more youthful look. For many people, double chins make them appear older than their actual age.

CoolSculpting is an excellent way to remove unwanted fat from your body with the use of cooling with cryolipolysis. Placing a device on the area with the excess fat is how treatments of CoolSculpting are performed. The device cools the area close to freezing. The freezing causes crystals to form in the fat. The crystals will lead to the destruction of the fat.

CoolSculpting a double chin is a quick and noninvasive procedure. Most people only require one or two visits. No needles are needed, and there is no downtime necessary for recovery.

Are you dealing with a double chin? Would you like to take steps to get rid of it? Here at Just Melt, we can help with CoolSculpting. If you live in New York and want to get rid of your double chin, give us a call today for more information?

Weight Loss vs. Fat Reduction

Many individuals find it shocking to hear that fat reduction and weight loss are not the same things. The main difference between the two is what happens to fat cells in the body. As we grow, the number of fat cells a body has becomes a fixed number. Cells can grow, which changes their size. When losing weight, the body is reducing the size of fat cells. As weight is gained back, the cell again becomes bigger. Weight loss does little to nothing to decrease the number of fat cells in the body. Individuals will workout and eat right to lose weight, but sometimes there are stubborn fatty parts of the body that just will not go away. This includes thighs, under the chin, back of the arm, and buttocks

CoolSculpting helps individuals to freeze away fat. In certain cases, a patient can see close to a 20% reduction of fat cells (only in treated areas). Those who go for CoolSculpting are losing fat, and not just decreasing weight. After CoolSculpting treatments, the body naturally processes fat cells, which the body then excretes.

In many cases, CoolScultping can help individuals lose fat bulges that won’t go away with dieting and exercise. If you need more information about CoolSculpting in New York, please do not hesitate to give us a call.

Frequently asked Questions about Coolsculpting

As a consequence of being a relatively new procedure to reduce fat, many people have questions about CoolSculpting and how it works. Below, we have compiled a frequently asked questions list. We feel that the more one knows about the procedure, the more comfortable they will become with it.

  1. Am I a strong candidate? This is a difficult question to answer, considering many factors need to be taken into account. CoolSculpting is for people who are only slightly above their desired weight and have fat bulges in specific areas (under the chin, the inner thigh, or the abdomen). Meet with a local technician to get a better understanding of your compatibility with the procedure.
  2. How long do sessions take? It is hard to give a clear and definitive answer to this question because it depends on the size of the area being sculpted and the total amount of sectors being done. A single session on a medium to large size area can take roughly 60 minutes, but some patients come for more than a single zone. This means the overall time will be longer.
  3. Is the procedure dangerous? The FDA has cleared this treatment. It is also non-invasive, and so patients can resume normal life after the session. There are no drugs or anesthetics. Side effects are limited, and so yes, CoolSculpting is safe.

Above are just a few of many questions that can be asked about this new fat treatment. Contact a local CoolSculpting Center to find out more information.

Is CoolSculpting Right for me?

How can you tell if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting? By answering the below questions, you can begin to weigh your options. Of course, the best way to determine your candidacy for the procedure is to contact and visit a local CoolSculpting treatment center.

Questions to ask:

  1. How much excessive body fat do you have? CoolSculpting works best for those who have a little unwanted fat in specific areas. CoolSculpting is not designed to be a cure for obesity.
  2. Will you be able to make the necessary changes in your life to help keep the weight off? CoolSculpting is designed to help you get to the weight you want when exercise and dieting are not doing the trick. Fat can and will grow back after the procedure if a person does not diet and workout.
  3. Do you have poor skin elasticity and tone? Although the process might still work for you, it makes you a less likely candidate.
  4. Are you in good overall health? Those who have heart valve replacement, arterial disease, epilepsy, malignant tumors, or metal implants might not be strong candidates.

Questions to not worry about:

  1. What is your gender? CoolSculpting works equally for men and women, despite the fact that males and females usually show fat in different areas of the body.
  2. What area of the body do you want to focus on? CoolSculpting can precisely target isolated parts of the body so that you can remove fat from wherever. Typical CoolSculpting spots include the chin, love handles/muffin top, inner/outer thighs, and abdomen.

For more information about CoolSculpting and if it can work for you, please give us a call and set up an appointment to come in. As mentioned above, the best way to truly know if you’re a candidate is to be assessed by a doctor.

The Difference between Weight Loss and Fat Reduction

For those struggling with weight, it is important to know the difference between fat reduction and weight loss. Reducing fat is different than losing weight. Simply put, losing weight does make fat cells smaller, but it does not make those fat cells go away. Weight loss does not lessen fat cells in the body, and when weight is gained the cells get bigger.

Reducing fat is slightly different because in the end the amount of fat cells in the body are lessened. In certain cases, patients can see reductions up to 25%. The fat cells are destroyed, and the body, over the course of several weeks, naturally processes the cells. They do not migrate to other areas of the body.

Cool Sculpting is a new method or reducing fat through applying cold to parts of the body. This treatment helps the body destroy fat cells in desired areas. This means that the treatment can be targeted to specific areas of the body, like the chin, belly, or legs.

If you are serious about taking control of your weight, and dieting and exercise do not completely do the trick, consider using non-invasive Cool Sculpting technology.

What is CoolSculpting?

Losing weight can be difficult, and in certain cases, people need a little help. Traditionally, people would turn to invasive procedures or pills to help lose weight, and both methods present different inherent risks. In recent years, the FDA has cleared a new weight loss treatment called CoolSculpting. This treatment is non-surgical, so there is no need for needles, anesthesia, or invasive techniques. Considering this technology is so new, many people are asking what CoolSculpting is?

Simply put, this weight loss process uses cold to kill fat cells, while leaving all other cells and tissues intact. The cold compress is applied directly to areas of the body that have unwanted fat. Cooling devices are built with safety detectors that monitor the temperature of the compress as well as the temperature of the skin.

After the treatment, the body will take some time (usually more than a week) to process the dead fat cells naturally. In some cases (results do vary), the results of the process are long-term because CoolSculpting kills fat cells. Proper dieting and adequate exercise can help to keep the weight off.

Best Kept Secret: Ultherapy Treatment in NYC
25 Nov 16 Blog Comments Off on Best Kept Secret: Ultherapy Treatment in NYC

Best Kept Secret: Ultherapy Treatment in NYC

Need a little pick-me-up? Who doesn’t! And, finally there is the perfect one for your skin — Ultherapy.

If you’ve been contemplating getting a facelift for quite some time but have steered clear out of the fear of going under the knife, this non-surgical, non-invasive procedure will be exactly what you’ve been searching for.

Ultherapy is a fresh, innovative procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the brow, neck, and under the chin. Even better, Ulthera offers skin tightening and lifting with no downtime — seriously, just a 60-minute session will leave you with dramatic results.

However, Ultherapy is also a gift that just keeps on giving! While you’ll notice a short-term “boost” after your session, the natural process of creating new, more elastic collagen will also build over time — much like the effect that exercise has on building muscle (but without the multiple workouts!).

Ideal candidates for Ultherapy are those who feel that their skin has lost its elasticity and are wanting to get back that firmness. Typically, those in their thirties and above are the ones opting for Ultherapy to reverse the effects of aging skin. However, Ultherapy is also an awesome option for any younger person who’s looking to stay ahead of the game, as well as those wishing to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.

During the 60-minute treatment, you will feel the ultrasound working on your skin. These are actually small amounts of focused ultrasound power being delivered underneath your skin’s surface. You may experience some discomfort as the treatment is being delivered, but it is only temporary. It is actually a positive sign as this means the collagen-activating process has already began.

Unlike traditional laser and radio-frequency devices (that heat tissue through the skin’s surface), Ultherapy delivers micro-focused ultrasound energy below the skin’s surface.

Ultherapy uses the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin—including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift—without disturbing the surface of the skin.

Ulthera works by causing immediate collagen contraction and initiating aggressive collagen synthesis, while doing no damage to the skin’s surface.

Sounds too good to be true? Trust us — it isn’t. In 2009, The Ulthera system even became U.S. FDA approved! The FDA approval created a new category of device. In fact, Ulthera is the first and only non-invasive technology to receive an FDA indication for lift.

Because of the innovative way Ultherapy treats skin, it has become the leading technology for safe and noninvasive results for skin tightening and lifting.

With Ultherapy, there’s no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change; just a healthy revving-up on the inside for a natural, noticeable effect on the outside.

Post Summer Peels in NYC

Post Summer Peels in NYC

While most of us cant get enough of the warmer months, there’s one thing that doesn’t quite mix with them — chemical peels. Although pretty much everyone loves soaking up the sun, it’s important to know that doing so in the summer after getting a peel is a big no-no as your skin is very sensitive and even more susceptible to sun damage. The good news? Now that we’re changing seasons, it’s the perfect time to go for that peel, and boy, have we got the one for you!

As the only proprietary chemical peel developed to be safe on all skin types, the Vi Peel is the most gentle yet powerful way to treat acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, hyperpigmentation, melasma, rosacea, and enlarged pores.

However, the face isn’t the only place where the Vi Peel can work its wonders, as it can also be used on the neck, chest, arms, back, and legs.

And, just how does the magic take place? Well, the combination of Trichloroacetic Acid, Tretinoic Acid, Salicyclic Acid, Phenol, Vitamin C, and an array of other minerals that make up the Vi Peel work together to safely remove the damaged layers of skin, boost cellular turnover, and improve the surface layer, leaving skin with an overall more youthful appearance as it’s smoother, clearer and firmer.

The ideal candidate for a Vi Peel is anyone who may be looking to erase acne scarring, mend skin damage, or reverse the effects of early aging. The best part of all? It’s relatively painless.

During a Vi Peel, the skin is cleansed before the solution is administered in two phases. First, the solution is applied to penetrate into the skin cells solely on the surface. Next, the second application goes deeper into the dermis where all of the dead skin cells and toxins are hiding.

Shortly after, the solution dries and you are free to go about your day, with the exception of waiting five hours before washing it off.

In two to three days, the skin will begin peeling and continue to do so for up to six days. Once the skin finishes peeling, minor improvements may be visible, but full results generally take four to six weeks to appear.
