CoolSculpting 10,000 Club

CoolSculpting is the leading non-surgical, FDA-cleared fat reduction treatment that has proven safe and effective to address your body contouring goals such as those stubborn love handles or outer thigh bulges. By choosing Coolspa New York City, you are opting for one of the leading CoolSculpting providers with experienced technicians, over 18,000 treatments performed, and the supervision of one of New York City’s top plastic surgeons.

Developed by Harvard doctors, the technology behind CoolSculpting is based on a scientific fact: fat cells are more sensitive to cold than surrounding tissues. Using advanced freezing technology to deliver cold to the fatty areas while protecting the skin, CoolSculpting targets selected fatty bulges. Once frozen under this controlled cooling method, the targeted fat cells will be broken down and cleared away from the area naturally over a period of several weeks, all while the other cells from the treated area remain unharmed. In a matter of weeks, you will be able to see lasting results from some of the best CoolSculpting NYC has to offer.

CoolSculpting New York City

The procedure itself is fairly straightforward. The process begins with an appointment where Dr. Rapaport, a plastic surgeon expert in body contouring, will meet with you in order to create a customized treatment plan based on your body and your body contouring needs and goals.

While in treatment, your technician will apply a protective gel pad on the targeted area after which the CoolSculpting applicator does its job by supplying vacuum pressure and cooling. The CoolSculpting session can last from under an hour to several hours depending on the number of body areas treated, and once completed, you can return to your normal activities without worries and little, if any, discomfort. Side effects may include numbness, bruising, swelling, stinging or tingling, but these are all temporary.

This is a perfect method for those who are having a hard time with stubborn fat, but please remember that it is not a method of weight loss: you will see the changes in the mirror- not on the scale.

CoolSculpting by Coolspa is a technique that cools fat deposits down to the point that the fat cells die and the fat is naturally removed by the body.

The advantages of the CoolSculpting technique are:

  • Average fat reduction of 20 - 25% for good candidates
  • No surgery or incisions
  • No anesthesia necessary
  • Little to no discomfort
  • No down-time
  • No scarring
  • FDA cleared

Our NYC CoolSculpting is not for everyone, but 96% of appropriately-selected patients (those with visible fat bulges,) see results, with an average fat reduction of 20-25% in treated areas. To learn whether you are a good candidate for this procedure, please schedule a consultation with our plastic surgeon, David P. Rapaport, MD.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

The CoolSculpting machine utilizes an applicator that is placed on the bulge that is to be treated. The applicator pulls the fat bulge up to its cooling surface, and then precisely cools the tissue. The goal is cryolipolysis: the destruction of fat cells with cold. Scientific studies have shown that fat cells are more susceptible to destruction by cold than the other cells around them. To take advantage of this, the CoolSculpting device is designed to reduce the temperature in the fat bulge to the point that fat cells are destroyed, but the rest of your tissues, including your skin, blood vessels, and nerves, are not affected.

CoolSculpting is recommended to treat bulges in the:

  • Belly
  • Love handles
  • Upper and lower back
  • Male breasts (gynecomastia treatment)
  • Inner and Outer Thighs
  • Arms
  • Submental region (double chin)
  • Knees

What is the CoolSculpting Recovery Time?

One of the best things about CoolSculpting is that the recovery time is minimal with no downtime! Patients are free to return to normal activity or go to the gym immediately after treatment. While there may be a sense of numbness in the treated area, this will resolve predictably in about 2 to 4 weeks. There is sometimes a small bruise caused by the suction, resembling a hickey, but most commonly there is no bruise at all, and the pinkness of the skin caused by the cold resolves fully in a matter of hours. Because recovery is so easy, CoolSculpting is truly a procedure that can be "squeezed" into a busy schedule and does not need to interfere with other aspects of one’s life. We have treated people who have arrived directly from the airport, and people about to appear in public; it’s that simple.

Before & After


What is the cost of CoolSculpting?

The cost of CoolSculpting treatment corresponds directly to the amount of treatment desired. The Coolspa complementary body contouring consultation will come with a customized treatment plan. Treatments are charged based on the number of applicator placements. Pricing is based on the number of applicators used during treatment. The applicators are on the body for thirty-five minutes of computer-controlled cooling, followed by a 2-minute massage. For optimal results, we may recommend more than one treatment of any given area, spaced 6 to 12 weeks apart. Package pricing for a series of treatments results in very significant cost savings. Patients who are interested in the most dramatic results will typically schedule 2 to 3 hours of treatment at a time. Now with four CoolSculpting machines at our flagship Fifth Avenue location, it is possible to treat two or even three spots at once, all while watching a movie, catching up on work, or even sleeping.

What is CoolSmooth?

Coolspa is also proud to be among the first practices in the northeastern United States to introduce the CoolSmooth applicator. This applicator represents an enormous advancement in CoolSculpting technology, because unlike the other applicators, which must grab the tissue and hold it inside, the CoolSmooth simply rests on the area to be treated. This allows outer thighs to be treated, as well as other fatty bulges, which may not be adequately pinchable for the traditional CoolSculpting applicator. We have thus far seen some dramatic outer thigh results and are thrilled to bring this technology to our clients. Best of all, we routinely perform DualSculpting with these applicators, treating both sides simultaneously, so that you can get twice the results in half the time.

What Does CoolMini Address?

The CoolMini is a small applicator that is used to target smaller fat deposits or more bony, curved areas that aren’t possible to treat with a larger applicator. The CoolMini is a great option for treatment of fat under the chin or above the knee. For example, one to three CoolMini applicators may be employed to treat a double chin, possibly one in the center and one on each side, overlapping to address the entire area of concern. At Coolspa NYC, the side applicators may be applied simultaneously to reduce the time of treatment thanks to both the technology and technician expertise that we offer, which is often not available at other CoolSculpting providers.

Bruising is rare and the treatments are generally very well tolerated. The CoolMini applicator boasts clinically proven results with an average of 20-25% fat reduction, consistent with other CoolSculpting applicators. (please note: individual results may vary.) Numbness after treatment is possible, but resolves quickly on its own. Results are typically seen beginning one month after treatment.

Some other treatable areas with the CoolMini:

  • Area in front of the underarm
  • Area behind the underarm
  • Inner knee area and fat deposits found above and below the knee

The appropriate treatment for your specific needs will be decided at the time of your one-on-one consultation with our plastic surgeons.


The CoolAdvantage applicators represent the latest innovation of CoolSculpting technology. CoolAdvantage treatments can be performed in just 35 minutes, instead of one hour with the older applicators found at many other centers. This cutting edge engineering provides faster treatment at a lower temperature while treating a larger surface area.

The CoolAdvantage Applicator may treat most of your problem areas, including:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks/Hips/Waist
  • Inner thighs
  • Banana rolls
  • Arms

Coolspa is excited to offer both the CoolMini and the CoolAdvantage applicators, in addition to all of our other applicator designs.

As NYC’s leading CoolSculpting provider, we are proud to be one of the first practices to offer the most recent addition to the CoolSculpting line-up: The CoolAdvantage Petite. This applicator is the perfect size to reach some advanced contouring areas such as the arms and knees.
