What Is CoolSculpting®?

In order to avoid invasive fat-reduction procedures like traditional liposuction, you may be interested in procedures that reduce fat without any type of surgery. One procedure is known as CoolSculpting®. During a CoolSculpting® procedure, a dermatologist would utilize a device that would freeze your targeted fat cells. The frozen fat cells eventually die and are naturally removed by your body. Here are some other facts about CoolSculpting®:

  • Only one area can be targeted per treatment
  • Treatments take about one hour
  • Most treated areas need 2-4 treatments in order to maximize results
  • Non-invasive
  • No anesthesia
  • FDA-approved

Sculpsure Benefits | Manhattan DermatologyWhat Is SculpSure™?

As opposed to CoolScupting® that utilizes cooling technology, SculpSure™ treatments are delivered by a laser system that heats your fat cells. By directing this laser technology into your stubborn, fatty areas, the laser heats and emulsifies the fat cells, essentially melting them. Once the fat cells are melted, they naturally vacate your body. Additionally, the heat from the SculpSure™ treatments encourage collagen and elastin production in your treated areas. This encourages healthy and youthful tissue growth, leaving your treated areas thinner, taut and beautiful. 

Here are some other facts and benefits about SculpSure™:

  • Up to 4 areas can be treated at the same time
  • Treatments take 25 minutes, rather than 1 hour like CoolSculpting®
  • SculpSure™ requires one to two treatments
  • Non-invasive
  • No anesthesia
  • FDA-approved

Why Our Manhattan Dermatologist Recommends SculpSure™ Over CoolSculpting®

At JUVA Skin & Laser Center, we do not offer treatments with CoolSculpting®. We want to provide the best-available products and technology to our patients, while saving you money, time, and maximizing your results. Because SculpSure™ generally requires one to two treatments per area, it saves our patients time and makes their fat loss more efficient. Additionally, Dr. Katz was part of the clinical trials for SculpSure™, running one of the two locations in the United States where clinical trials were held.

This experience with SculpSure™ makes Dr. Katz an expert on the amazing results you can achieve from it.

When you're ready to make the decision to have excess portions of fat removed from your body, we hope you consider SculpSure™ treatments from our NYC dermatologist. You can maximize your results, save time, and experience results sooner. Contact us today to discuss your SculpSure™ questions and how it can help you love the way you look!
