What is CoolSculpting®?
CoolSculpting® and CoolSculpting® Elite are non-invasive fat-removal procedures offered at our Union Square and Central Park offices.
CoolSculpting Elite offers enhancements in technology and is intended to reduce unwanted fat tissue, utilizing a patented method known as cryolipolysis, or the use of cooling to break down fat.
CoolSculpting® Elite contains larger cooling panels and a curved applicator to hug the body’s contours naturally. This innovative treatment employs precisely controlled cooling to naturally reduce unwanted fat in the abdomen, flanks, upper arms or neck, and jowls (double chin). Fat cells are frozen, and once crystallized, these fat cells are naturally eliminated from your body.
Why Choose UnionDerm for CoolSculpting?
Our physicians have been performing CoolSculpting treatments since its FDA clearance in 2010, and it continues to be the gold standard for non-invasive fat removal.
Additionally, Dr. Ugonabo has led and participated in several clinical trials focused on the advancement of body procedures, and those findings have been published in the top dermatological journals, including The Journal of Lasers in Surgery and Medicine, and presented at conferences for both The American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery and the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, among others.
Who is a Candidate for CoolSculpting®?
Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting® include individuals within 20 pounds of their ideal weight, wishing for a more toned, slim, and tightened physique. Patients must have no hanging or loose skin in the treatment area and only require a slight reduction in body fat to reach their cosmetic goals. The best way to determine whether you are an ideal candidate for treatment with CoolSculpting Elite is through a private consultation with a UnionDerm board-certified dermatologist.
What can I expect with CoolSculpting®?
During the CoolSculpting procedure, a non-invasive applicator is placed on the patient, and the tissue being treated is brought into contact with large cooling panels on the applicator. The Coolsculpting system delivers precisely controlled cooling to target and eliminate fat cells in specific body areas, such as the abdomen, love handles, and the back. The fat is cooled for up to an hour per application site while the patient sits comfortably in the office.
