To get rid of belly fat or lose your love handles permanently without surgery, CoolSculpting by ZELTIQ™ is an excellent and affordable solution. CoolSculpting is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment that freezes fat that does not respond to diet and exercise. Because of our extensive experience with CoolSculpting, ZELTIQ™ has made our practice a training center in New York City, where other physicians and staff come to learn the best coolsculpting techniques to reduce fat in patients.
Once the CoolSculpting device is applied to the area, cooling panels target fat cells only destroying 25% of them permanently. This is the only technology FDA approved for freezing fat (Cryolipolysis) and eliminating it from your body for good. The result is a noticeable reduction of about 25% of the fat bulge in the treated area.
Unlike most technology to reduce fat, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. CoolSculpting is painless and takes 1-2 hours for each treatment. Patients can read, work on their laptops, and relax during their treatment. Patients return to their regular activities immediately, unlike with surgery.
The best results are seen after 2 months, but a noticeable difference can be seen in most patients in as few as 3 weeks. Treatments can be repeated as needed for a truly “sculpted” look.
We also use CoolSculpting to treat and contour areas such as arms and thighs. The best results are obtained with an experienced operator who knows to adjust the device specifically for the contours of your body; Valentina Hadland, our certified aesthetician, is a trainer for Zeltiq and frequently lectures on best practices. She and Dr. Eviatar will provide a personalized consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
