Sometimes, despite our best efforts to diet and exercise, stubborn fat deposits remain behind. For common problem areas like the “double chin,” love handles, abdomen, and inner and outer thighs, there’s a revolutionary new procedure available in New York that reduces fat cells, without surgery called CoolSculpting. As a leading provider of CoolSculpting®, NYC based board certified dermatologist, Dr. Michele Green, has helped thousands of patients throughout the tristate New York area and beyond. Dr. Green has been voted repeatedly as one of the best CoolSculpting providers in NYC. She has been a leader in the field of cosmetic dermatology and has the expertise to provide you with outstanding results. Dr. Green was one of the first dermatologists to provide CoolSculpting in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and has been treating patients with this unique technology for over ten years.

The Science behind the CoolSculpting Procedure

CoolSculpting is an FDA approved treatment designed for fat reduction in stubborn problem areas for healthy patients. CoolSculpting is not a weight loss device or a treatment for obesity or being overweight. The ideal candidate for CoolSculpting is a patient who has has reached their targeted idea weight, but still has specific bulges which need treatment. CoolSculpting reduces the fat cells in any treatment area by 25 percent without any side effects. This process of fat freezing was originally designed to treat the abdominal area, but has since extended its use to treat multiple areas of the body. Some of the most common areas of treatment of unwanted fat are the submental area (double chin), love handles, upper arms, inner thighs, outer thighs, bra fat, flanks, back and abdominal areas.

CoolSculpting uses patented cooling 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. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than the surrounding tissue. Known as cryolipolysis, this process causes the fat bulges to be “frozen” and the body to excrete these fat cells through its own natural metabolic process. CoolSculpting causes these fat cells to be slowly metabolized by the lymphatic system, and for this reason there is no increased skin laxity associated with this treatment. The ultimate cosmetic results are a leaner, tighter body, known as non-invasive CoolSculpting body contouring.

CoolSculpting has revolutionized cosmetic dermatology through this amazing non-invasive fat freezing technology and its non-surgical removal of body fat. The CoolSculpting solution offers numerous advantages over conventional plastic surgery such as liposuction, as it requires no needles or incisions. Because the treatments are gentle and entirely non-invasive, no anesthesia is needed, which means zero downtime or recovery. It also means that your CoolSculpting treatment does not carry the risks or side effects which are associated with surgical procedures. Dr. Michele Green was one of the first cosmetic dermatologists in NYC to incorporate CoolSculpting in her boutique New York practice more than ten years ago, and has produced outstanding cosmetic results.

How does the consultation for Coolsculpting work?

Once you call and schedule your consultation with Dr. Michele Green, in her NYC office, she will discuss the unique cooling technology behind CoolSculpting with you. During your consultation, pre-treatment photographs of the areas you want treated will be taken.  An honest assessment is made and a treatment plan will be discussed with you at length. A copy of your personal treatment plan will be given to you with both the time needed for each treatment area and the corresponding cost. You can then schedule your CoolSculpting procedure to have the fat removal done at a time when it is comfortable for you and you can return home, to work, or the gym, directly after your treatment, with no recovery time.

Does CoolSculpting work?

Yes, studies show that CoolSculpting is a very effective method of fat reduction and has become the gold standard for non-invasive body contouring. CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical method of treating fat cells beneath the skin, and has been used since its FDA approved in 2010 throughout the world. Since 2010, the total number of CoolSculpting treatments has increased by 823 percent. Due to the clinical efficacy of cryolipolysis or fat freezing, the treated fat cells in a given area are decreased by 25 percent. Repeat treatment of the same area shows even greater results with up to a 40 percent decrease in fat cells. Within weeks of treatment, dead fat cells are excreted from the body, and the amazing CoolSculpting results can be fully realized after four months. Since its first introduction in 2010, the number of applicators and areas of treatments has increased to treat stubborn fat from the abdomen and flanks, to include bra fat, knees, neck, arms, and inner and outer thighs. In order to realize the  best cosmetic results from your CoolSculpting treatment, it is important to consult an expert in CoolSculpting, like Dr. Michele Green in NYC. Dr. Green has been treating patients with CoolSculpting, in her private New York office, since CoolSculpting was first introduced.

Are there contraindications to CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting treatment is not for everyone. CoolSculpting is a safe FDA approved treatment to reduce stubborn fat bulges. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. If you are pregnant, you are also not a candidate for CoolSculpting.

Which areas of the body does CoolSculpting treat?

  • Submental area (“double chin”)
  • Abdominal area
  • Flanks
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Back and bra fat
  • Knee fat
  • Buttock fat (banana roll)
  • Male breast tissue (gynecomastia)
  • Upper arms
  • Axillae (armpit fat)

What does the CoolMini™ treat?

The CoolMini is a small applicator and is used to treat small fat bulges, where a larger size applicator cannot fit.  The CoolMini applicator is the ideal size, shape, and curvature to fit into the small area under the neck, and treat the submental fat. Despite diet and exercise, the area under thin chin is a particularly stubborn area of fat, with many patients having a genetic proclivity to a “double chin.” Before the advent of CoolSculpting, the only way to treat the “double chin” was through liposuction. Most patients no longer want invasive liposuction and can accomplish these same results thanks to advances in non-surgical alternatives, such as CoolSculpting and Kybella injections. The CoolMini applicator was designed to freeze the fat under the chin, to get rid of a “double chin”. One to two applicators of the CoolMini may be needed to treat this submental area, depending on how much fat is present.

Several months after treatment with the CoolMini, if there is a small amount of fat which remains in the submental area, Kybella injections can be used to reduce the remaining fat and contour the jawline. The CoolMini and Kybella injections work synergistically to deliver the ultimately contoured jawline. In addition, Kybella injections can tighten the skin under the chin, which is in direct opposition to liposuction, which leaves loose sagging skin. In addition, the CoolMini applicator can also be used to treat small areas of fat by the knee, and in front and behind the underarm area, and bra fat. Ninety percent of patients who do CoolSculpting for the bra fat, utilize the CoolMini for treatment to reduce this stubborn fat bulge. The treatment time for the CoolMini applicator is just 45 minutes, with repeat treatment for the neck as early as 4 weeks after the procedure if needed. The full results of the CoolMini treatment will be realized within four months. When two treatments are done within one month, these two CoolMini treatments can reduce submental fullness by up to 40 percent within 3 to 4 months.

How much is CoolSculpting for chin?

CoolSculpting for the chin costs $1,000 per area. If someone has a larger double chin, then often both sides of the neck are treated, with a cost of $1,000 per side, to have the best cosmetic results. It is best to call Dr. Green’s office to check for pricing since there are often specials run specifically for CoolSculpting. Each treatment of the Coolmini applicator takes 45 minutes, so both sides of the neck with treatment, marking, and massage will take close to two hours to complete. The stubborn fat area under the chin is a cosmetic concern for many patients. Thanks to the unique fat freezing results of CoolSculpting, within 3 to 4 months, the double chin will be reduced, without any down time or discomfort.

Over two thirds of Americans are unhappy by their “double chin” according to Allergan Cosmetics. A “double chin” affects one’s profile, jawline, and detracts from the beauty of one’s face. The CoolMini applicator is perfectly designed to remove this excess fat from below the chin and leave your neck contoured and rejuvenated. CoolSculpting is an amazingly effective treatment for the submental area. As long as a patient maintains a healthy lifestyle and does not gain weight, the long-term results from CoolSculpting are permanent.

Which are the main CoolSculpting Applicators?

The office of Dr. Michele Green has the latest CoolSculpting applicators including:

  • CoolMini
  • CoolFit
  • CoolCurve
  • CoolSmooth
  • CoolCore
  • CoolAdvantage Plus

Each CoolSculpting applicator is uniquely designed for fat removal in a different area of the body.  Some applicators are larger and are designed with suction while others are smooth with no suction at all. Some patients prefer dual-sculpting, which is having two sides treated at the same time with two simultaneous applicators, as for the outer thighs.

CoolAdvantage™

The CoolAdvantage applicator takes just 35 minutes and is faster than the original one hour applicator.  It consists of 3 different applicators, the CoolFit, CoolCurve, and CoolCore. The CoolAdvantage applicator treats a larger surface area, with lower temperature, with a faster treatment time. The CoolAdvantage treats multiple ares of the body including the abdomen, flanks, love handles, waist, hips, banana roll, upper arms, and inner thighs.

Does CoolSculpting work on the arms?

Yes! CoolSculpting works extremely well on the upper arms. If you want to reduce the fat in the upper arms, CoolSculpting will make your arms slimmer and more lean. If there is any previous skin laxity involved before CoolSculpting, Dr. Green combines Thermage for skin tightening to help produce new collagen and tighten lax skin. Another excellent procedure to combine with CoolSculpting for the arms is Sculptra Cosmetics. Sculptra injections will stimulate new collagen production and replace lost volume in the upper arms, thereby tightening the skin. Dr. Green is an expert in NYC in non-surgical rejuvenation and will combine the best cosmetic treatments to rejuvenate your arms.

CoolFit™

The CoolFit applicator treats the inner thighs and upper arms. Each arm or inner thighs takes 35 minutes to treat each area to completion. The CoolFit applicator is entirely painless with no downtime. After four months, you will observe the complete cosmetic results of your treatment. For larger areas of fat on the upper arms or inner thighs, repeat treatment with CoolSculpting is recommended after one month.

CoolCore™

The CoolCore treats the flank area. It is a curved applicator which takes 35 minutes to treat each flank. Many patients combine CoolSculpting of the flanks with CoolSculpting for the abdomen. For patients treating the abdomen, who need a “diamond shaped” treatment, to treat various fat bulges in the abdomen, and not one solid area, Dr. Green utilizes the CoolCore applicator at four to six different areas of the abdomen, to treat to transformation. The CoolCore can also be used for an area of bra fat.

CoolCurve™

The CoolCurve is similar to the CoolCore applicator, except that it has a larger curve. The CoolCurve treats the love handles or flanks to produce an “hourglass” figure. Each treatment of the CoolCurve is completed in 35 minutes.

CoolAdvantage Plus™

The CoolAdvantage Plus takes 45 minutes to treat primarily a large abdominal area. CoolSculpting can be used to treat a stomach area of any size. Many patients need two treatments for a large abdomen. The CoolAdavtange Plua applicator is commonly used to treat the “muffin top” of the stomach. Repeat treatment can be done in one month if there is a sizable area of the abdomen. However, it is important to remember that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss device, and you should be within 25 to 30 pounds of your ideal weight for the best cosmetic results.

CoolSmooth™

The CoolSmooth™ is a unique applicator designed to treat the outer thighs. Each session for the outer thigh takes 75 minutes. The CoolSmooth applicator is unique in that it requires no suction. There are no side effects from this fat freezing treatment. A large outer thigh with a bigger fat bulge will require two treatments of CoolSculpting to have the best results.

CoolPetite™

The CoolPetite takes 35 minutes and is used for small areas where the CoolAdvantage applicator does not fit. It can be used on small areas of back fat, small flanks, a small stomach, inner knees, and small banana roll.

What is the recovery time for CoolSculpting?

One of the best things about the CoolSculpting procedure is that there is no down time and almost no recovery time! You can return to the gym, school, or normal daily activities the same day as the treatment. Depending on which applicator is used, there may be some bruising if the applicators requires suction.  Usually, there is no bruising. Some patients have some soreness or numbness from the procedure, which tends to resolve in a few weeks. Since, there is typically no recovery time, CoolSculpting is the ideal procedure to get done during your “lunch time” or any day of the week.

Does CoolSculpting hurt?

For the first five minutes, during the procedure, there is some discomfort until the skin is “frozen”. After the treated area is “frozen”, there is no discomfort during the entire treatment. Most patients watch a movie, work on their laptop, or take a nap during the procedure. Immediately after the treatment, when the applicator is removed, there is some tenderness as the treatment area is “thawed”.  This soreness goes away from 1 day to 2 weeks. A rare side effect of pain has been associated with some patients after CoolSculpting which can be treated with oral medications such as Neurontin, and also resolves within a few weeks.

What is the cost of CoolSculpting?

The cost of CoolSculpting depends on both the amount of treatments needed and how many sessions are required to reach your desired goals. The price of CoolSculpting treatments depends also on the type of applicator needed for your individual goals. Depending on the size of the applicator needed, the session could be 35 minutes to an 75 minutes, with the larger applicators generally costing more than the smaller ones. For optimal results, we may recommend a repeat session in a given area 4 to 12 weeks after your initial treatment. Most patients who are looking for more dramatic results have several areas treated on the same day which may require three to four hours of treatment in one given session.

CoolSculpting vs Liposuction?

CoolSculpting and liposuction are both methods of fat reduction. Liposuction is an invasive surgical procedure, which produces skin laxity by the sudden removal of fat, under anesthesia, with a cannula. There is considerable downtime, pain, and potential side effects from liposuction. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive method of fat cell destruction, which relies on fat freezing technology. CoolSculpting is the first and only FDA approved non-surgical treatment for stubborn pockets of fat on the body. There is almost no downtime from CoolSculpting, no skin laxity formation, and minimal side effects from the procedure.

Although the results from liposuction are seen rather quickly, there is considerable recovery time from liposuction. CoolSculpting takes several months to see the full cosmetic effects, but there is no recovery time, incisions, pain, or anesthesia. Most patients prefer CoolSculpting over liposuction since this method of fat reduction can be performed on your lunch hour, for virtually any area of the body.

Does CoolSculpting treat bra fat?

CoolSculpting for the bra fat is an excellent treatment. A bra bulge is a very common problem, particularly for women as they get older or gain wight. This bra fat is an accumulation of fat cells which increase its distribution around the upper back, armpit, and bra area. In addition, lack of exercise or muscle strengthening in these areas can make bra fat more noticeable. Dr. Green treats many women with this problem area, in her NYC office, for bra fat and back fat with CoolSculpting.

Stubborn fat in the bra area can appear under the arms and make someone self-conscious wearing a bra or a t-shirt. CoolSculpting treatment removes these fat cells in one simple treatment. Depending on the size of the back fat or bra fat, Dr. Green may utilize the CoolMini, CoolPetite, or CoolAdvantage applicator. An in person consultation and examination is the only way to assess which applicator would fit best for fat reduction treatment.

Removing the bra fat is one of the most popular areas of CoolSculpting treatment in Dr. Green’s  New York office. Whether it be the result of genetics, hormones, metabolism, or lack of exercise, CoolSculpting is extremely effective in treating the stubborn fat cells in this area. Many women have the bra fat treated in conjunction with slimming the upper arms with CoolSculpting for painless and effective non-invasive body contouring.

Does CoolSculpting work for back fat?

CoolSculpting works extremely well for back fat. In the past, there was no non-invasive treatment for back fat. Thanks to cryolipolysis, it is now possible to freeze fat cells in the back fat area without and remove stubborn fat through a single CoolSculpting treatment without any down time. Depending on the size the back fat, more one than one type of CoolSculpting applicator may be used for different individuals. An in person consultation with Dr. Green is the best way to see which applicator is best for your specific area of treatment. Treatment of back fat can be combined with fat reduction treatment of the arms, bra area, or any other area during the same  day. A treatment plan will be organized to maximize the removal of unwanted fat during one single day. After three to four months, you will be able to appreciate the full CoolSculpting results.

Does CoolSculpting work for the inner and outer thighs?

CoolSculpting treatment works on many areas of the body, including the inner and outer thighs. The CoolFit applicator and CoolSmooth applicator are especially designed to treat the inner and outer thighs, respectively. Despite diet and exercise, the thigh area is one cosmetic area which is difficult to reduce. CoolSculpting is designed to remove unwanted fat for the thighs, without any recovery time. The CoolFit for the inner thighs takes 60 minutes to reduce fat in this treatment area. The outer thighs use the CoolSmooth applicator which is 75 minutes for completion to freeze this unwanted fat. If you have a large fat bulge in the inner or outer thighs, Dr. Green recommends repeat treatment in one month to have the best CoolSculpting results in four months.

Are there any side effects to the CoolSculpting procedure?

During the CoolSculpting procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. There is an extremely rare side effect of paradoxical adipose hyperplasia after cryolipolysis which has been observed as well.

Why choose between a medspa or a dermatology office in New York for your CoolSculpting?

When choosing an office to have your CoolSculpting procedure done, there are some important considerations to consider. First, you should research and google the physician or practice who is offering CoolSculpting. You should see how long they have been practicing and what their experience is with CoolSculpting treatments.  You should know if the physician will be doing the CoolSculpting consultation or not.

At our office, all of the CoolSculpting consultations are done by Dr. Green and all of the CoolSculpting procedures are supervised by Dr. Michele Green in her NYC office. Many medspas, CoolSculpting centers, and clinics in New York do not have a physician at the practice and you will not be having your consultation with a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon. They offer “free CoolSculpting consultations” but they are rarely with an experienced physician. In addition, you should research the facility to see if they are CoolSculpting certified and trained. The training of the physician and staff is very important in knowing their experience in CoolSculpting and impacting your ultimate cosmetic results.

What to Expect from your CoolSculpting Treatment

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 process – also known as cryolipolysis, chills the fat cells and stimulates the natural metabolism of these cells. The fat is then excreted by your own body.

Treatment time depends 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 treating fat cells, like lasers, ultrasound and radiofrequency, can impact other cells, posing greater risk to you. Additionally, because CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure, there is no risk of infection, complications from anesthesia, or other side effects associated with surgery.

The CoolSculpting procedure contours the body by safely and effectively freezing unwanted fat. Unlike the liposuction process, fat is not re-distributed to other parts of the body, and the skin will not be loose after the procedure. The unwanted fat is gradually dissolved, unlike liposuction, so there is no risk of skin laxity from CoolSculpting. Since this non-surgical fat reduction procedure is non-invasive, there is no recovery time required following your treatment. Patients may resume normal 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 some 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.

CoolSculpting results are visible within 3 to 4 months after treatment. After CoolSculpting treats fat cells in your body, they will not reappear if healthy exercise and lifestyle are maintained. The procedure may be repeated in the same area within one to four months.

Frequently Asked Questions about CoolSculpting

When do you see the results of CoolSculpting?

The results of your fat freezing will appear gradually as the body metabolizes and excretes the treated fat cells. Some patients notice the results in a few weeks after their treatment, and others continue seeing improvement for up to four months. At that time, Dr. Green recommends a follow up appointment to see if a second session is needed.

How long does CoolSculpting last?

The effects of CoolSculpting are permanent as long as you don’t gain weight.  CoolSculpting is not a weight loss device. CoolSculpting is a fat reduction treatment for a given area. Each treatment of CoolSculpting causes a 25 percent decrease in fat in a given area. Repeat treatments of CoolSculpting in the same area are not needed as long as you maintain a healthy diet and exercise. Dr. Green has had outstanding results with CoolSculpting in her NYC office and finds CoolSculpting a permanent solution as long as patients do not gain weight back after treatment.

Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting?

The best candidates for CoolSculpting® are already at or near their healthy body weight, but find that they have a few problem spots (like the love handles) that just aren’t responding to diet or exercise. Candidates should also be in good overall physical and mental health, and have realistic expectations about their results.

How does CoolSculpting® work?

CoolSculpting® is a patented, FDA-approved technology that allows for concise, intense cooling of fat cells in the treatment area. Through this process, called cryolipolysis, the targeted fat cells are destroyed, and the body treats them through natural metabolic processes over time. The final result is a sleeker physique without the need for incisions, scars or even downtime.

Can I combine CoolSculpting® with other cosmetic procedures?

Some patients may benefit from combining CoolSculpting® with additional procedures for the best results. For example, Dr. Green may recommend a secondary treatment like Thermage® for patients who also notice loose skin in the treatment area or to treat cellulite. Dr. Green works closely with every patient to ensure a customized treatment plan that will help meet your cosmetic goals.

What should I expect during treatment?

The treatment session itself is relatively short, generally lasting 35 minute to an hour, with larger treatment areas  requiring more time. Dr. Green will use the handheld device to position the target area between the two special cooling panels. Once the cells have been sufficiently frozen, the session is completed, and you can return to your normal daily activities.

Will I need multiple sessions?

Some patients may see improvement after just one appointment, while others need additional sessions for further fat reduction. The number of sessions needed, depends on how much fat is in the treatment area.  Dr. Green will be able to assess the areas during your consultation, and let you know how many sessions will be needed for the best cosmetic results.

What areas respond best to CoolSculpting treatments?

Stubborn fat on the inner thighs, upper arms, love handles (the oblique areas of the stomach), the tummy, the bra area and back fat, and submental area (double chin) are targets for CoolSculpting. Any area with enough loose fatty tissue will respond well to CoolSculpting procedure.

Are there any pre-existing conditions that affect CoolSculpting treatment?

Some patients experience neuropathy (numbness and tingling sensations) in the abdomen after CoolSculpting, but this lasts only during the recovery phase right after a treatment. There are several causes of neuropathies and rarely are these caused by cold temperature. However, as with any pre-existing medical condition, if you have questions or concerns about how a procedure may affect you, talk to Dr. Green during your consultation.

Does CoolSculpting work on arms, love handles, thighs, back and bra fat?

Yes! Whether or not you weigh less, you’ll be thinner and your clothes will fit better, you’ll feel better, and you’ll look better.

Is CoolSculpting right for diabetics?

Because this is a non-invasive procedure that involves no medications or anesthesia, CoolSculpting is safe for diabetics. There are no incisions made in the skin, there is no surgical wound and no risk of infection or poor healing. You may experience slightly increased numbness in the treated areas, but most diabetic patients experience no additional discomfort or side effects.

Can CoolSculpting be used after pregnancy?

Patients who are pregnant are not generally candidates for CoolSculpting, but the procedure is safe and effective after pregnancy for that post-baby belly bump and will not affect future pregnancies in any way. Three months after your pregnancy you can consult Dr. Michele Green about Coolsculpting to help with your “mommy makeover.”

How long does CoolSculpting last?

The results of CoolSculpting are permanent. However, if you gain weight the fat cells that are present will expand and negate the positive effects of your CoolSculpting procedure. Continuing a healthy lifestyle, diet, and exercise, are essential to maintaining the positive effects from your CoolSculpting treatment.

Does CoolSculpting tighten the skin?

CoolSculpting does not tighten the skin, like other skin tightening procedures such as Thermage or BBL. However, your skin will not get more lax from the CoolSculpting procedure since it is a gradual process of fat reduction. Unlike liposuction, which is a sudden decrease in fat and there is significant skin laxity involved as a side effect of liposuction, there is no skin laxity that results from the CoolSculpting procedure.

Do you lose weight with CoolSculpting?

You do not lose weight from CoolSculpting, as the CoolSculpting treatment is not a weight loss device. You do, however, lose inches from CoolSculpting and not pounds.

Does insurance cover CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a cosmetic procedure and since it is not medically necessary it is not covered by insurance.
