Get rid of that Stubborn Body Fat with Coolsculpting

Fat in the body can be stubborn. Even with proper diet and exercise habits, it can be difficult to remove all unwanted fat. In certain cases, it may even be impossible to get the desired results without extra help. Liposuction is an invasive procedure, and so it can be dangerous. Chemicals and pills can also have adverse effects on the body. Unfortunately, it is not hard to find stories of people getting sick and dying from dangerous diet pills. At Just Melt, we offer safe and non-invasive Coolsculpting treatments. Coolsculpting is a revolutionary way to kill fat.

Coolsculpting works by using cold to kill fat cells that developed in the body during maturity. After three days, fat cells begin to die from the inside out. 1st timers can notice 20-25% reductions. For desired results, patients come back for two or more treatments. Results can be physically seen as early as three weeks, but best results are seen between one to three months.

We can debulk and sculpt specific areas of the body depending on your wants and needs. For instance, we can flatten the inner thigh and get rid of the bulges on the outer thigh. If you have pesky chin fat, we can help with that as well. We treat only specific parts of the body that patients want to be treated. For more information about Coolsculpting in NYC, give us a call or visit our medical spa in NYC.

Coolsculpting can help you look and feel good. We customize treatment plans for each of our clients so that we can give you the best experience with ideal results. Visit our medical spa in NYC for a consultation.

Cool Sculpting and Recent Scientific Studies

Cool Sculpting is a non-surgical way to help reduce unwanted body fat. The medical process is rather new, and so many people are unfamiliar with how it works. Some individuals are scared of the procedure because they never heard of the treatment before and sometimes new things can seem scary. In the last 20+ years, over 70 scientific studies have been published. Most of these reports confirm that this method of weight reduction is safe and it works. R. Rox Anderson MD created the concept behind Cool Sculpting, and since then the medical treatment has grown in popularity. Below, we will highlight some recent studies and their findings

  1. Bernstein EF conducted a longitudinal evaluation of Cryolipolysis efficacy, and he found that long-term follow ups with the treatment show lasting results
  1. Klein K.B and her team tested the reduction of subcutaneous fat and found that the treatment has no direct impact on liver function of serum lipid levels
  1. Dover JM Burns and his time found that many patients found up to a 22% reduction in “love handles” after only one visit.
  1. According to Coleman SR, Sachdecan and Egbert BM, there is no evidence of long-term negatives effects on the nervous system.

Cool Sculpting is growing in popularity because of the scientific studies that suggest it is safe, effective, and sustainable. For Cool Sculpting in NYC visit us at one of our medical spas in NYC.

Benefits of Coolsculpting

Dieting and exercise are not always enough to give people the body that they truly desire. Eating right and working can reduce stubborn fat cells, but they cannot get rid of those deposits. For those who need a little extra help shaping their body, Coolsculpting is an FDA approved weight loss procedure that can assist the body in naturally processing and expelling excess body fat.

Some advantages of this treatment include:

  1. Unlike liposuction, Coolsculpting is a non-invasive and relatively pain-free treatment. At no point during treatment are patients operated on, sedated, or given anesthesia. There is no need for an extended hospital stay, and after treatments, patients can go and resume daily life.
  2. Because there is no surgery or artificial substances added to the body, the treatments are safe. The process is also FDA cleared. Coolsculpting makes the body naturally process fat cells over the course of several weeks.
  3. Results of Coolsculpting look natural. This means that weight loss is even throughout the treated area. You will not have odd lumps or shapes. As you lose weight, your body will look natural.
  4. The result of Coolsculpting can be sustainable for extended periods of time if the individual continues to diet and exercise. Coolsculpting is not an alternative for keeping a healthy life style.

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.

21 Apr 17 Blog Comments Off on The Difference between Weight Loss and Fat Reduction

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.

18 Apr 17 Blog Comments Off on What is CoolSculpting?

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.
