In many cases those pills or powders do nothing, and in some cases they can actually be harmful to a person’s body. CoolSculpting NYCLooking and feeling good should not harm you, and this is why many people turn to strict diets and exercise regimens. Unfortunately for many, exercise and diets do not give the desired results of a toned body. Sometimes pesky fat patches remains on hips, bellies, chins, or thighs no matter what you eat or how active you are. This is because diet and exercise focuses on weight loss and not fat loss.

In situations like these, CoolSculpting can be a friend. CoolSculpting uses cold temperatures to freeze fat cells away. CoolSculpting kills fat cells, and then the body naturally sheds the fat. The process is relatively quick and painless, and the dangers associated with the process are very low. The FDA has certified CoolSculpting as a safe, non-invasive weight loss treatment.

If you do not like the way you look do not turn to chemicals. Come to our medical spa NYC, and see how this treatment can give you the body you’ve always wanted. We are the first name for CoolSculpting NYC

When is CoolSculpting the Right Answer?

CoolSculpting is a newer weight loss treatment that has been cleared by the FDA as safe and effective. Khloe Kardashian and Mariah Carey love it, and so does Molly Sims. Will you like it as well?

CoolSculpting uses cold temperatures to freeze off unwanted body fat on specific areas of the body. CoolSculpting, which is also referred to as cryolipolysis, is a noninvasive treatment that can reduce fat and tighten skin.

Cryolipolysis is done to specific parts of the body that have more than the desirable amount of fat. The procedure can be done on chins, arms, legs, and stomachs. It is like liposuction, in that you are spot treating, rather than fully slimming. In fact, CoolSculpting can not help you lose a ton of weight. It probably will not take off more than twenty pounds. CoolSculpting is for those who are in good to decent shape, and they have some stubborn fat that will not go away. The treatment will only make small dents for people who are overweight and with stretch marks.

If you feel like CoolSculpting is right for you, you should visit us at our med spa NYC. Let our board-certified doctors discuss your options and your possibilities as a candidate.

Med Spa ManhattanSimply put, they are spaces that combine traditional day spas with medical clinics. At our medical spa, we work to blend the best of both worlds. We offer a relaxing spa atmosphere that provides procedures only available in a doctor’s office.

All medical spas are run by and affiliated with medical doctors. Having doctors on the premises allows us to perform a wide range of spa and medical treatments. Although a doctor is on the staff, not all procedures are done by them. For instance, Coolsculpting is performed by a technician who is under the strict supervision of a doctor.

Not all medical spas provide the same services, but in general, patients are most likely to find treatments for hair removal, acne, aging skin, and weight—treatments typically located at a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Non-medical therapies consist of massages, seaweed wraps, and facials.

If a place like this sounds right for you, please visit our med spa in NYC.

  • Needs no hospital stays
  • Allows individuals to go directly back to their day after a treatment

Is Weight Loss and Fat Reduction the Same?

For many, fat reduction means the same as weight loss. When talking to a doctor or scientist, they understand that the terms are closely related but are not the same. Simply put, losing weight will make fat cells smaller, but it will not get rid of them. Reducing fat means that you are shedding fat cells from the body. As we grow, fat cells grow and become a fixed number by the time we reach our late teenage years. Losing or gaining weight generally does not affect the number of fat cells, but instead only changes their size. Dieting and weight-loss medication will help to make cells smaller.

CoolSculpting is designed to reduce the amount of fat cells in the body, not just change their size. CoolSculpting freezes fat on the body, and then within the next few weeks the body will naturally shed those fat cells. In many cases, patients can see up to a 25% reduction of fat cells in treated areas.

CoolSculpting is designed to work on individual parts of the body that have excess fat, including hips, chin, thighs, and forearms. CoolSculpting is non-invasive and requires no hospital stays or sedations. The process is also approved by the FDA. For more information on CoolScultping NYC, visit our medical spa in NYC.
