"Also known as CoolSculpting, this treatment freezes the fat and as the fat is frozen it causes the cells in the fat layer to die. Over several weeks, the fat cells die so you are losing your fat. Benefits are modest but the results are long lasting. Some patients can experience an increase in fat, which is quite common, and has been documented in medical literature as a side effect of CoolSculpting. The only way to remove this additional fat called paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH) is with liposuction, which is surgical." - Dr. Bruce Katz, founder of JUVA Skin and Laser Center in New York City
"Magnetic fields are used to cause the muscles to contract at rapid rates much faster that you can do while exercising - it's about 20,000 repetitions in 30 minutes. Because the muscles are contracted so quickly, they need an energy source, so they break down the adjacent fat while also improving the muscle. This is one of the most effective non-invasive treatments at reducing fat and building muscle. [I typically recommend] two treatments a week for two weeks. Results will last over a year, and there are no side effects." - Dr. Bruce Katz
"This treatment uses magnetic fields, however it also adds radio frequency, which helps muscles to be more efficient at contracting. It builds more muscle and removes more fat. It's about 30% more fat removal and builds 25% more muscle compared to the original EmSculpt. It requires two weekly treatments and results last for a year or longer. There have never been any side effects." - Dr. Bruce Katz
"I pioneered laser lipolysis and was the first in the country to do it. The treatment requires local anesthesia and the laser fiber is inserted under skin to melt the fat and tighten the skin. The only side effect is bruising and swelling, and the results are permanent." - Dr. Bruce Katz
Radio Frequency Lipolysis
"This treatment uses radio frequency to melt the fat. An electric current is applied to the skin and transmits an electrical current to fat level. It also tightens the skin. There is a modest benefit at best. Patients will see a little bit of fat removal, and there are no side effects." - Dr. Bruce Katz
