What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a revolutionary way to sculpt your body by targeting trouble areas of fat that don’t respond well to diet and exercise. Using patented cooling technology to destroy targeted fat cells, CoolSculpting in NYC safely and gently removes fat without harming the surrounding tissue.

What’s more, CoolSculpting is completely non-invasive, requiring no needles, incisions, anesthesia or pain medications. Patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately following the procedure, and visible results can be seen within two to four months.

What can be treated with CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is ideal for treating small areas of localized fat that don’t respond well to diet and exercise, including areas in the abdomen, love handles and back.

How does CoolSculpting work?

An early 1970s case studies showed that the cold from frozen popsicles may have led to dimpling in the cheeks of some children, indicating that cold might affect fatty tissue differently. Years later, world-renowned dermatologists at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston would take that concept one step further: Could you safely remove areas of targeted fat by chilling it? Their research showed that fat cells are indeed more susceptible to cold temperatures than other tissue.

This discovery led to the development of CoolSculpting. Subsequent to the initial studies, Dr. Goldberg was chosen as an investigator for the studies documenting the efficacy of CoolSculpting in the treatment of love handles. Using a patented method called cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting destroys fat cells in targeted areas by precisely controlling temperatures with advanced cooling technology.

Over the course of about an hour, the treatment area is chilled to just above freezing. Since fat cells freeze before other tissue, crystals form only in the targeted fat cells, resulting in fat cell death. During the next one to two months, the fat is gently flushed from the system as part of the body’s natural metabolic process.

How is the CoolSculpting procedure performed?

Before your NJ CoolSculpting procedure begins, your dermatologist will mark the area to be treated and cover it with a gel pad to protect the skin. A special applicator then gently pulls tissue between two cooling plates, where it will cool targeted fat cells for about an hour. That’s all there is to it!

There’s no need for anesthesia, needles, incisions or stitches. Patients are free to relax, catch up on reading, or even take a nap during the procedure. Once the treatment is finished, you can return to your normal activities immediately. You don’t have to wait for anesthesia to wear off, and you won’t need any pain medication or time off for recovery.

Can CoolSculpting be combined with other treatments?

Absolutely! Many patients elect to combine the cold therapy of CoolSculpting with the skin tightening power of laser liposuction. This combination treatment provides better results than either procedure alone. You and your doctor should discuss whether a combination procedure is right for you.

A message from Dr. David Goldberg and the team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ:

Dear Patients,

Our providers and staff recognize that we are all faced with difficult times as this pandemic continues to unfold throughout our area. However, the continuation of your care remains our top priority!

At this time, our New York City office is temporarily closed.

In our effort to provide you with the highest level of service, the Hackensack and Hillsborough NJ offices will remain open until further notice with limited hours of availability. We ask for your understanding with our protocols on hand washing and social distancing when you arrive for your appointment. Please do not come to the office if you are experiencing a cough, fever, shortness of breath, or other symptoms associated with COVID-19.

Should you prefer not to visit the office in person, our providers are now offering virtual office visits. This is commonly known as telemedicine, or in this case, teledermatology. Our dedicated concierge team will assist you in scheduling a virtual appointment with your provider, including those in the New York City office.

Currently, the government mandates that the only way to have these virtual visits is to communicate via FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, or WhatsApp video. This is because your medical providers needs to see you, and you can show the provider the problem area of your body that you are concerned about. You will also be able to discuss any other issues regarding your ongoing care or for any new skin concerns you may have. Your provider may tell you that an in-person visit may be required for testing or more in-depth examination. In that case, a concierge team member will reach out to schedule an in-office visit.

To schedule your in-person or virtual appointment, please call our office at 908-359-8980 or email [email protected] Our concierge team members will schedule a time for your medical provider to call you back. We have set aside times for all of our medical providers to call you for your virtual appointment.

Please be aware that virtual visits must be billed to your medical health insurance just as they would for an in-person office visit. If your insurance has recently changed, please have that information ready to provide to our team members. Depending on your insurance plan, you may have financial obligations such as co-pays, deductibles, and co-insurance just as you would for an in-office visit (at the present time, the government has only waived co-pays related to COVID-19 testing).

We understand that this is a stressful time, but we are here for you!

Stay safe and healthy,

Dr. David Goldberg and the team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ
