Nо mаttеr whаt size is uѕеd, еасh dеvісе is mаdе uр оf two раnеlѕ thаt соntаіn 3,000 ѕеnѕоrѕ оn еасh side. Thе skin being trеаtеd wіll be pulled up bеtwееn the twо раnеlѕ bу thе аррlісаtоr.

What IS CoolSculpting?

The CoolSculpting procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you’ll look and feel great from every angle.
Freeze away fat? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
You can reshape your body! We will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
It’s easy to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat. After we select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During your procedure, you may choose to read, check email, or even take a nap.
The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately.
You will like what you see. In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
Are you ready to love every view of you? The sooner you set up your consultation, the sooner you’ll see results in the mirror—long-term results in those areas that have resisted all efforts through diet and exercise. Contact us today to find out if the CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is right for you.
Results and patient experience may vary.


Importance of Sunscreen Protection

Now that summer is at its peak its more important than ever to use sunscreen, especially when enjoying the beach.
Be sure to pick up sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 15 at your local pharmacy. You should apply sunscreen to all exposed skin and reapply sunscreen every 2-3 hours or as instructed on the sunscreen bottle. Remember that it is important to wear sunscreen even when you’re not on the beach especially for individuals with sensitive skin.
UV radiation can cause significant harm to your skin besides the usual sunburn. Some damage can’t be seen with the naked eye but may lead to premature aging of the skin. If you notice any new and asymmetrical birthmarks make sure to see your doctor immediately as this may be a sign of melanoma.
Sunburns usually last for about 24 hours but pick up aloe lotion and moisturizer at you local pharmacy for pain relief. If you experience swelling, itching or you develop a rash along with the sunburn be sure to call your doctor.
Most importantly remember to enjoy your summer and stay safe and healthy with proper skin care.

Protecting Yourself and Your Family From Cold & FLU

There are a few common-knowledge things that you and your loved ones can do to
help avoid getting sick during the Flu Season. First and foremost, getting vaccinated
cannot be stressed enough, especially for people who are in the higher risk group
like young children and seniors. New Yorkers are very prone to getting sick in the winter months, so taking care of ourselves and our loved ones is a must.
What are some other methods to try to ward off getting sick? Do Vitamins and supplements actually help in reducing
your risk or are they just myths?

Let’s start with the well known Vitamin C. There is no consensus on whether or
not Vitamin C can help reduce your risk of getting a Flu, however studies do show
that taking Vitamin C as a preventative measure helps cut the duration of colds
in both adults and children by a small amount. Experts suggest that you eat at
least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day in order to get your daily Vitamin C

Vitamin D can serve a lot of purposes. But can it help in fighting colds and flu? Some
scientists believe that in the lack of sunlight in the winder months for many people
can be associated with the rise in cold and flu viruses. Studies are underway about
the relationship between cold and flu viruses and Vitamin D intake, but considering
the true benefits of Vitamin D, make sure you get those daily 10-15minutes of sun
exposure or take the supplement.

Doesn’t chicken soup do wonders for you when you just aren’t feeling all that great?
Do you know why? It’s Zinc! A study found that people could reduce their risk of
developing pneumonia when their zinc levels are normal as it is beneficial for our
immune cells. Make sure you are getting your daily-recommended amount during
the cold and flu season!
