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

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.

Melt Away Your Thigh Fat With Coolsculpting

Melt Away Your Thigh Fat With Coolsculpting

CoolSculpting For Your Thighs 

For as long as I can remember, I’ve hated my thighs. From the feeling of them rubbing together when I walked, to dreading the summer months because I knew I’d have to have them exposed in shorts, my “thunder thighs,” as I called them, were my biggest insecurity, and one that I just couldn’t seem to shake… until I heard about CoolSculpting.

As a safe non-invasive procedure cleared by the FDA, CoolSculpting gently cools unwanted fat cells to prompt controlled elimination of fat cells in the body. And, as someone who had a stubborn bulge that wouldn’t respond to diet or exercise, CoolSculpting was the answer to my prayers.

Its non-invasive technology finally gave me what I was always hoping for, as it not only got rid of that stubborn fat once and for all, but also gave me a much-needed boost in self-confidence.

If you’re anything like me — or better yet, how I used to be — you may want to consider giving CoolSculpting a chance.

CoolSculpting may be right for you if:

  • You want to be rid of an area of fat, yet you are unwilling to undergo a surgical procedure.
  • You want a treatment that is fast and easy, and does not require downtime.
  • You want to lose inches that you can’t seem to get rid of with diet and exercise.
  • You want a treatment that rids fat in a natural way.
  • You want to look and feel your best.

How it works:

By freezing your unwanted area of fat, CoolSculpting allows you the benefits of a surgical procedure without needles or knives. In fact, it’s so easy that those undergoing a CoolSculpting treatment are most typically working on their laptops, talking on the phone, or reading during the procedure.

After you have used CoolSculpting to treat your desired area, your body naturally metabolizes the “frozen” unwanted fat and in 3 months you will see a drastic improvement to the selected area(s). Some report seeing results in as little as 3 weeks.

CoolSculpting leaves you with clothes that fit better and gives you the boost of confidence you seek.


After your recovery, the area may feel numb for a few days, and feelings of tingling or soreness may occur. The area may have redness; however it will subside within a few hours of your treatment. You may return to work and normal activity right away-as CoolSculpting requires no downtime.

Over the next three months your body will work to metabolize the fat cells that were frozen during your 1 hour procedure. In 3 months you will be able to see the full results of your CoolSculpting treatment. One CoolSculpting treatment will reduce the circumference by roughly 25%, you may return for another CoolSculpting treatment to enhance results.

If you can’t lose it, freeze it… but make sure you do so at Just Melt — one of the first offices to receive the newly designed Cool Advantage treatment hand-piece, and the only practice in NYC to receive two hand pieces.

Selected as a Crystal Level Provider of CoolSculpting Services, Just Melt Med Spa is currently the #1 CoolSculpting practitioner in NYC!

Top Reasons Massages Cure All
13 Oct 16 Blog Comments Off on Top Reasons Massages Cure All

Top Reasons Massages Cure All

In honor of Massage Awareness Month this October…

Learn About Choosing The One That’s Right For You

When it comes to massages, there’s about a million reasons why you should get one — other than the fact that it feels amazing. Believe it or not, getting a massage has some health major benefits, so much so that we recommend that everyone goes out and gets one… like, right now!

Don’t believe us? Here are the top reasons massages cure all:

  1. They ease muscle pain

First and foremost, massages work to increase and improve circulation. Plus, if you’re suffering from chronic back pain, massages have been found just as effective as other treatments, so you might want to give one a go!

  1. They soothe anxiety and depression

Human touch can be so incredibly relaxing and therapeutic that not only can a massage put you physically at ease, but also mentally.

  1. They counteract all that sitting you do

If you’re stuck behind a desk all day, chances are that you’re dealing with some kind of postural stress. If you’re contemplating quitting your job because you can’t take the shoulder, neck, and back pain, try getting a massage first — we promise it’ll work wonders! Massages can counteract the imbalance cause from sitting, which means you can continue working with no worries.

  1. They improve sleep

Tossing and turning at night? Having trouble sleeping? Stop counting sheep and go get a massage! Not only do they encourage a restful slumber, but you’ll experience maximum comfort while you’re at it, too.

  1. They boost immunity

According to Best Health Mag, a study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that massage boosts patients’ white blood cell count — which plays a large role in defending the body from disease.

So, what kind of massage is right for you? Just Melt Med spa has a ton of options for you to choose from!

Shiatsu Massage: (shi meaning finger and atsu meaning pressure) is a type of massage consisting of finger and palm pressure, stretches, and other massage techniques.

This Japanese style of massage has a very different ‘feel’. The massage does not use massage oil, and it does not even directly touch your skin. Direct pressure with the thumbs, palms, knuckles, forearms, even knees and feet are used to stimulate and relax specific points on the body. Pressure is sometimes applied rhythmically along the length of muscle attachments; where muscles become tendons and attach onto bones. Massage with knowledge of muscle origins and insertions is very effective for overall circulation stimulation and results in dramatic pain relief.

Classic (Swedish) Massage: Swedish massage uses five styles of long, flowing strokes to massage.

The five basic strokes are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber) and vibration/shaking.

This style massage is accomplished by rubbing the muscles in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

Thai Yoga Massage: An Eastern modality based on the meridians of Aruvedic healing. An ancient style that accompanies energy work and stretching in passive/assertive yoga poses for an overall mind/body healing experience.

Performed on a mat with exercise/yoga clothing.

Reflexology Massage: An ancient form of healing using mapped out body organs and tissues on the hand, ear, and foot to produce a desired effect without working on an area of the body.

May also be performed fully clothed. Also known as zone therapy, is an alternative medicine or pseudoscience involving the physical act of applying pressure to the feet, hands, or ears with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that they say reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work affects a physical change to the body.

Sports Massage: The best way for an athlete to get warmed up for an event. It uses a rhythmic, fast paced, resting movement of both joints and muscles along with stretching.

This produces maximum optimal function and response for performing key fundamental tasks of skill in your preferred sport of choice.

Deep Tissue Massage: Deep Tissue Massage therapy is a branch similar to Swedish massage dedicated to aiding the average working individual or athlete.

It gets to the heart of a muscles problematic nature and breaks down scar tissue to begin the regeneration of injured malfunctioning tissue. The deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).

Deep tissue massage can break up and eliminate scar tissue from previous injuries. A common problem is that stressed muscles can block nutrients and oxygen from getting to where they need to go, and this will cause inflammation that allows toxins to build up in your muscle tissue. The inflammation and toxins contribute to pain and stress. Deep Tissue Massage breaks up and releases the built-up toxins by loosening the muscles. With the toxins released, blood and oxygen can circulate as they should through one’s body.

Social Media Goes Crazy For CoolScultping

For some, physical wellness is measure by how they look and rightfully so. When people dedicate a sufficient amount of time to routine diet and exercise, they are aiming to reach their optimal form and expect to see results. But what about that stubborn body fat that just won’t budge due to genetics, previous childbirth, etc.? Luckily, there is a way to rid that problematic, unwanted body fat with CoolSculpting.

What is CoolSculpting?

coolsculpting-zeltiq-Fat-Freezing Fat Reduction Procedure

Disclaimer: Results may vary

CoolSculpting is a safe, non­-invasive fat removal and body contouring system that treats unwanted, stubborn body fat. This procedure is used to help reduce and eliminate fat in specific chosen areas of the body that do not budge with regular diet and exercise.

This FDA approved, non­-surgical treatment gently cools unwanted fat cells to further prompt controlled elimination of fat cells.

How does CoolSculpting work?

After a patient meets with a technician during their first consultation, the patient will first learn if CoolSculpting is the right procedure for them. Once this treatment is approved, the technician and the patient will first identify the target areas that the patient wishes to be treated. Then, based on the areas chosen, the technician will choose which applicator will work best on those areas. Once the correct applicator is chosen, the technician will then place a topical sheet over the chosen section to numb the area, followed by applying the application. During the CoolSculpting treatment, patients may read a book, work on their laptop, talk on the phone or simply relax to pass the time. Each area that is selected takes a treatment time of approximately one hour. Results are permanent and will be seen three months after treatment and all swelling or bruising has subsided. Some patients may have additional treatments for more problematic areas, so long as they are maintaining a healthy diet and weight between procedures.

CoolSculpting Recovery

There is no down­-time after the CoolSculpting treatment and patients may resume regular day ­to ­day activities. After treatment, patients may experience numbness for a few days on the treated areas, possibly accompanied by a tingling sensation and soreness. Over the course of the next three months, the body will work to metabolize the treated fat cells that were frozen in the procedure. Full results will be visible after three months. CoolSculpting can be used on the arms, legs, thighs and stomach area.

What are the benefits of CoolSculpting?

There are multiple benefits that come from the CoolSculpting treatment such as: ­rid unwanted areas of stubborn body fat without invasive surgery ­fast and easy treatment with no downtime needed ­lose inches that will not budge with regular diet and exercise ­rid fat in a natural way ­look and feel your best JustMelt MedSpa has been selected as a Crystal Level Provider of the CoolSculpting Services.

Filling In The Facts: 4 Things You Need To Know About Facial Fillers
20 Sep 16 Blog Comments Off on Filling In The Facts: 4 Things You Need To Know About Facial Fillers

Filling In The Facts: 4 Things You Need To Know About Facial Fillers

In recent years, the use of beauty fillers for “anti-­aging” has grown rapidly in popularity. Although some individuals prefer to go all in and use surgical invasive procedures to enhance their natural features or reverse the signs of aging, some feel that they are not in need of a drastic change or are hesitant about the severity of the surgical procedure. This has led many to take advantage of the new found appreciation for beauty fillers in order to “fix” whatever issues they may have.

The only downfall to this is that certain fillers have become household names, like Botox for example. Some run to their nearest doctor and say they want fillers however, they do not understand that one type of filler cannot be used in every area or to treat every problem. When deciding that the use of beauty fillers is a realm that someone wants to explore, research is key. Here, we have broken down some basic facts about cosmetic facial dermal fillers to help others gain a better understanding of what they are and what they treat.

1. Not All Fillers Are Created Equal

When some people hear the word “fillers”, they automatically assume Botox. In 1989, Botox had been introduced to the world and since then, it has grown in popularity. However, Botox is not a substance that can help reverse all signs of aging or fill all lines and wrinkles. There are different types of fillers that are used for different portions of the body and have different outcomes. It is all based on the individual and their needs. There are two main types of fillers that you should know about: Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and Collagen Producing Biostimulators. HA filler is a synthetic form of the natural sugar molecule that the body loses over time and produce immediate results after treatment. This type of filler is typically used to replace lost volume, smooth over fine lines and wrinkles, and and can tighten the jawline. This type of filler can last anywhere between 6 months to 2 years. Biostimulators is used to help boost volume and aids in the production of collagen. This is ideal for areas that have began to appear sunken in or hollow like the cheeks and temples. These results are not immediate. Educating yourself, not only on the different types but also the different brands of fillers can help you further determine which will work best for you and give you the results that you desire. Your specialist will help you in this process as they are there to help advise you in the best way that they can. This way, your results are catered to your needs.

2. Beauty Fillers Is An Easy Way To Obtain Natural Looking Results

Believe it or not, it takes a lot of work to make you look “over­done”. Typically, the amount of filler that a person may need is measured by the syringe. Usually, the number of syringes depends on the amount of work you need done in conjunction to your age. If you’re younger and in your 20’s you may only need 1­2, however, if you are in your 30’s­ or 40’s, you may need between 3­ to 4. To come out looking overdone, you would need to use an overabundance of fillers in a short amount of time. This fear and idea alone tends to sway people away from fillers in fear that they will look fake and overdone. This is why we stress the importance of education before undergoing any procedure.

3. Not All Undesirable Results Can Be Reversed

Depending on the type of filler you choose, your results, if they are undesirable, may or may not be reversed. One of the most attractive things about fillers, other than the magic they perform, is the fact that some of these results are temporary which works perfect for individuals that are considering getting work done but want to do somewhat of a “trial period” before making the commitment. If an individual chooses to use Hyaluronic Acid fillers and is not pleased with the end result, the changed can be reversed using an enzyme known as Hyaluronidase. In the case of Biostimulants, the filler can not be reversed and the only options after treatment would be to wait until the product wears off or to use other fillers in conjunction with the current to help create a more desirable appearance.

4. Who You Go To Makes All The Difference Between Natural & Worked

One of the most important factors to take into consideration when considering fillers is to ensure that you are going to be placed in the right hands. Going to a well­-educated specialist who can assess your issues and help you choose the right product for your desired outcome will help further ensure that you are going to be delivered the results you are expecting. Improper use of fillers or placement can result in undesirable outcomes, skin infection, bumps, puffiness and lack of symmetry. A well ­educated specialist will also ensure that you do not come out looking over­-worked and will put your concerns to rest.

Taking these facts into consideration can make all the difference in your end result. Educating yourself on the proper use of certain fillers and making sure that you are placing yourself in proper hands is extremely important to your health, self ­confidence and overall well being.
