How CoolSculpting Helps
CoolSculpting is designed to reduce 20-25% of fat per treatment in stubborn problem areas on otherwise healthy bodies—most commonly love handles, back fat or abdominal fat. The CoolSculpting method uses patented technology to deliver targeted and controlled cooling to specific areas on your body, affecting only fat cells and ensuring no harm occurs to any surrounding tissue or cells. Known as cryolipolysis, this process stimulates the body to remove layers of fat cells through its natural metabolic processes, giving you a leaner, tighter body.
The CoolSculpting solution offers numerous advantages over conventional surgery, as it requires no needles or incisions. Because the treatments are gentle and entirely noninvasive, no anesthesia is needed, which means zero downtime for recovery. It also means that the treatment carries no risk of the side effects that are often associated with surgical procedures.

What to Expect from CoolSculpting
During your treatment session in our New York City based location, Dr. Green will place a gel pad and a specialized applicator to deliver cooling to the fat cells in the targeted area. This cryolipolysis, chills fat cells and stimulates the natural removal of these cells. The fat is then metabolized by your own body.
Each treatment can last anywhere from one to several hours, depending on the size of the area being treated. Dr. Green can give you an estimate of your appointment time at your initial consultation. Longer sessions can be broken up over several days or can be scheduled all together in one sitting. With the newest CoolSculpting applicators, treatment cycles are 35 minutes, cutting treatment time by almost half.
Most patients experience only minimal discomfort during this procedure. During your treatment, you can read a book, listen to music or simply take a nap. While everything necessary will be provided, you are welcome to bring any additional comforts of home such as movies, music, pillows or reading material.
This technology enables precise, controlled delivery of the cooling that affects only fat cells on your body, ensuring that no surrounding tissue or cells are affected or damaged. Other common methods for destroying fat cells, like lasers, ultrasound and radiofrequency, can impact other cells, posing greater risk to you. Additionally, because CoolSculpting is non-invasive, there is no risk of infection, complications from anesthesia, or other side effects associated with surgery.
There is no recovery time required following your treatment. Patients may resume their daily activities immediately and even exercise right after their procedure. Mild redness in the treated area can last several minutes up to two weeks, and some people may see bruising. Within the first two weeks you may experience, tingling, tenderness, cramping, itching or soreness. You may feel a temporary dulling sensation in the treated area for up to eight weeks, although most patients experience only mild side effects if any.
You should see results within 2 to 4 months. The effects of the treatment are long term. Once CoolSculpting eliminates fat cells from your body, they will not reappear if healthy exercise and lifestyle are maintained. The procedure may be repeated in the same area within two to four months to have a 40-50 percent reduction of fat in that area.
If you’re frustrated with fat deposits that just aren’t responding to diet and exercise, there’s finally a nonsurgical solution that can help. To learn more about CoolSculpting in NYC, patients can contact us online today or call 212-535-3088.
