How does Cool Sculpting work?

In a scientifically proven process known as Cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting exposes fat deposits to cold temperatures using state of the art cooling panels. The cold temperature freezes the fat without harming skin or surrounding tissues. Once frozen, fat cells crystallize and enter apoptosis, or cell death. The crystallized fat cells are then collected by the body’s natural immune system and removed from the body as waste.


Cool Sculpting Treatment Areas

Cool Sculpting can freeze fat from nearly any practical place on your body. At Park Avenue Medical Spa, our full inventory of the latest fat freezing technologies includes a complete collection of Cool Sculpting applicators from Zeltiq’s newest line. These applicators are specially designed to conform to different areas of the body. This allows Dr. Anca Tchelebi to customize your treatment plan to your body and optimize the treatment for maximum results. The new technology also decreases the average treatment time to 35 minutes and improves comfort.

In addition to the CoolAdvantage Collection of applicators, Park Avenue Medical Spa offers fat freezing treatments using the CoolMini and CoolPetite applicators. The CoolMini applicator is designed to reduce submental fullness, commonly known as double chin fat. The CoolPetite is specifically designed to freeze away fat that collects in the upper arm area.

Cool Sculpting is currently cleared by the FDA to reduce unwanted body fat from the following areas:

  • Abdomen (belly fat)
  • Flanks and hips (love handles)
  • Back
  • Submental area (double chins)
  • Upper arms
  • Outer hips
  • Inner hips
  • Chest area on men (moobs or man boobs)
  • Underneath the buttocks (banana roll)
  • Armpit fat (bra bulge)

Is Cool Sculpting safe?

Cool Sculpting is a safe, non-invasive treatment that reduces fat without the risks or lengthy recovery times associated with fat reduction surgery such as liposuction. Besides clearance from the FDA and 5 million plus treatments performed to date, Cool Sculpting’s high safety profile is supported by numerous scientific reviews. One study published in Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology concluded, “Cryolipolysis is considered to be both safe and efficient with a high patient satisfaction rate.”³ Another study published in the journal of Dermatological Surgery found “cryolipolysis is a safe, well-tolerated, and effective treatment method for reduction of subcutaneous fat.”⁴

Cool Sculpting Side Effects and Cool Sculpting Risks

Cool Sculpting side effects are uncommon. However, it is normal to experience symptoms such as temporary and mild bruising, tenderness, redness and swelling following your Cool Sculpting treatment. These symptoms show that your immune system is working hard to collect and process frozen fat cells. During your complimentary consultation with your Westchester Cool Sculpting provider from Park Avenue Medical Spa, side effects and Cool Sculpting risks will be discussed in detail.

How soon will I see my Cool Sculpting results?*

Because Cool Sculpting uses the body’s natural immune system to collect and remove destroyed fat cells, there is a gradual fat reduction that typically spans between 4 – 12 weeks, although results may vary. Many patients prefer this gradual, non-invasive fat reduction because it resembles the physical transformation that naturally results from traditional fat reduction through diet and exercise.

Patients also have the choice to undergo several Cool Sculpting treatments, usually spaced 4 to 8 weeks apart, for optimal fat reduction from a certain area.

CoolSculptng FAQ


CoolSculpting is FDA approved, and scientifically proven to be a safe and effective method of non-invasive fat reduction. During your free consultation with Dr. Tchelebi, potential side effects and other concerns regarding this treatment will be discussed to better enable you to make an informed decision about your cosmetic treatment.


During the CoolSculpting procedure, tissue is drawn into an applicator using a gentle suction mechanism. The applicator is equipped with cooling panels that rapidly cool the treatment area to a temperature that crystallizes fat cells but does not injure the skin or surrounding tissue. The CoolSculpting machine is equipped with different applicators and cooling panels, specifically designed to remove unwanted body fat from various “problem areas” around the body. Larger cooling panels allow CoolSculpting to target body fat from the abdomen and flanks, helping reduce belly fat, lose love handles, eliminate saddle bags, and reduce back fat. Smaller cooling panels can reach fat deposits from smaller problem areas, reducing double chins, armpit fat (or bra bulge,) fat below the buttocks, or fat deposits above the knees.*


CoolSculpting is safe and FDA approved. Unlike Liposuction, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive and non-surgical. It requires no anesthesia, no injections, and no prescription pain pills. While every person is different, the vast majority of patients report the CoolSculpting procedure to be relatively painless. Because CoolSculpting is non-invasive, there typically is no down-time, and most clients return to their normal activities immediately after their CoolSculpting treatment. Scientific studies conclude that CoolSculpting is “well-tolerated, with 89% of respondents reporting a positive perception of treatment duration and 96% reporting minimal to tolerable discomfort.”  The most common experience of discomfort during the CoolSculpting procedure is feeling cold at the treatment area, comparable to an ice pack placed on the skin. But this sensation usually goes away within a few minutes.*


CoolSculpting is a body contouring treatment designed to reduce fat. It is not a weight loss solution, but when properly administered and used in conjunction with diet and exercise, CoolSculpting can help you see excellent results.*


CoolAdvantage is the latest technology from CoolSculpting, and Park Avenue Medical Spa is the first CoolSculpting provider in Westchester to utilize this state-of-the-art equipment. The new applicator was designed with comfort in mind.

While duration times may vary per client, typically, the CoolAdvantage applicator reduces treatment time to 35 minutes with more targeted cooling leading to better results.*
