CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, fat-reduction procedure that utilizes the technology of controlled cooling to eliminate fat that diet and excercise together can’t reduce. This FDA-approved procedure works by eliminating fat cells beneath the skin (without any needles or surgery) by freezing them. Once those cells are frozen, your body will naturally eliminate them and the fat they contain over the course of a few weeks. And once those fat cells are gone — they’re gone for good!
When you come into our office, you’ll work with Dr. Schultz and our team to determine the best areas to treat with CoolSculpting. Typically, patients want to eliminate any “pinchable” fat in their love handles, back, abdomen, chin, upper arm, thighs, and what some patients call “bra bulge”. No matter who you are and what you’d like treated, CoolSculpting is an incredible alternative as a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that produces lasting results.
According to Allure Magazine, “bra bulge” removal surgery is on the rise. Across all age groups, women are looking to surgically remove that last bit of fat bulging between their armpit and their bra. With CoolSculpting, you don’t need to go under the knife to get the smooth, tighter-looking, contoured looking skin you’ve lost to the bulge. CoolSculpting reduces that unwanted fat in a quick and painless 35 minute treatment session, making this technology incredibly effective and efficient.
Both men and women come in for CoolSculpting, with many men choosing to remove their double chin. Often, a double chin is hereditary, which makes it difficult to treat with diet and exercise alone. Freezing the fat causing your double chin is just as effective as freezing it on any other area of your body. This non-invasive approach is ideal for shaping and contouring your neck without the hassle, downtime, expense, or risks of surgery.
According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, in a clinical study, 86% of patients showed improvement from CoolSculpting and 82% would recommend the process to a friend. These studies also showed that fat reduction was durable, despite weight fluctuation, for up to five years post-procedure. CoolSculpting is both safe and effective with a high patient satisfaction rate after only one treatment.
You may assume that losing fat means you will automatically lose weight — however, this is not necessarily the case. However, you will lose volume because the treated area will be smaller. It’s all about what happens to the fat cells themselves. We have a fixed number of fat cells on our body once we reach our teenage years. This means that losing or gaining weight won’t decrease or increase the number of fat cells, but instead, it will change the size of them. When you lose weight, you’re making your fat cells smaller. Gaining weight? Your fat cells get bigger. But with CoolSculpting, you’re actually reducing the total number of fat cells in the treatment area by 20%-25%. And as was already mentioned, once those fat cells are gone, they’re gone! That’s what makes the treated area smaller.
The amazing and convenient advantage of CoolSculpting is that, unlike liposuction or surgery, it requires no downtime and no recovery process. That means you can combine the CoolSculpting procedure with your other methods of fat reduction like exercise. The healthy routines you have in place with diet and exercise shouldn’t be given up, and CoolSculpting will help to fine tune the healthy changes you’re already creating in your body.
Yes! Patients are flocking to CoolSculpting because of its efficiency, its effectiveness and the ease of every treatment. Because it’s all about freezing fat, at the beginning of your treatment, you’ll feel a little bit of cold in the area you’re sculpting. But after a few minutes, the cold feeling subsides and the treated area just feels numb. When your appointment ends, the area may be slightly sensitive to the touch, but will go back to feeling normal within an hour.
The outcome of your CoolSculpting treatment will be determined by the amount of experience and good judgment of the operators and our office operators have both, giving you the very best results every time. Additionally, one of the differences with having your CoolSculpting treatments done here is that during the procedure, you can optimize your time! If you’d like to schedule other procedures while you’re having CoolSculpting done, our office and operators can administer anything from glycolic treatments to Botox to Fillers and more. Because we can multitask, we can better use your time, giving you the absolute best results.
There is no need to prepare for your CoolSculpting appointment. When you come in, you’ll discuss with our team what areas you’d like to treat and we’ll customize a treatment plan for you. During the treatment itself, we’ll apply a gel pad and applicator to the target area. And feel free to multitask during your appointment! It’s fine to read, check email, get a lash lift, glycolic peel, or even take a nap! You’ll, of course, feel cool in the first few minutes, but that dissipates shortly thereafter. Every appointment will vary in length depending on the area or areas being treated, but you can expect your appointment to be between 35-60 minutes. When your treatment is finished, you can go about your day as usual, as there is no downtime or recovery.
I've been seeing Dr. Schultz for the last 8 years and during that time, I've recommended him to countless friends for both cosmetic and medical dermatologic help. I trust him completely both diagnostically and aesthetically. When I had shingles, he was wonderful, incredibly supportive and kind. And when I eased into doing more cosmetic dermatology, he was– and continues to be– patient, careful and cautious. He listens to concerns and really hears what your goal outcome is and works with you to make it happen. I wanted to maintain a natural look while keeping my skin looking fresh and that's just what he's done for me. I always leave his office feeling prettier and well-cared for! If you have a medical concern or something about your skin you want to upgrade, you can't do better than Dr. Schultz and his wonderful team. And the products are amazing as well!

Dr. Schultz is the most thorough and good natured dermatologist I have ever seen. I have been a patient of his for more than 20 years. He has taught me everything I know about the value of taking care of my skin, a gift that keeps on giving. He also takes the time to listen to me, to see me as an individual and doesn't treat my needs as a one size fits all doctor. I really appreciate his kindness, patience and expertise. I absolutely love his product line and have definitely reaped the rewards from using it, especially his glycolic peel pads and moisturizer, which I can't live without. My skin feels softer, smoother, appears more translucent and actually looks younger! Dr. Schultz helped me to see beyond the lines and wrinkles, although he so good at helping to keep those at bay while maintaining a very natural appearance. His staff is outstanding. They make you feel welcome, like family, from the moment you walk through the door. Angela, Monika, Deborah and all of the support staff are extraordinary at what they do. Thank you Dr. Schultz and everyone at Park Ave Skincare. You're the best!

Dr. Schultz has truly transformed my skin, so much so that I can confidently leave the house without wearing makeup now. During my first meeting with Dr. Schultz, he intently listened to my skin concerns, we discussed what my goals were, and he explained pragmatically what treatments and products he recommended for me. I truly appreciate his fantastic bedside manner and conservative approach. I am a perfectionist in every aspect of my life, including my skin, and Dr. Schultz understood this and was committed to helping me achieve every skin goal I had. The entire staff is just so fantastic and friendly, from reception to the PAs. They make you feel welcome and extremely comfortable, which to me is very important when visiting any doctor’s office. As someone who works too much and never gets enough sleep, my skin was looking very dull and lifeless. My skin is now full of life again and has an incredible glow to it which I have never had before. And I owe it all to the incredible Dr. Schultz.

My partnership with Dr Schultz began more than 30 years ago. As a generous friend, advisor, skilled surgeon, and superb cosmetic diagnostician, he has enabled me to look my best. He has kept me abreast of the most sophisticated procedures and in so doing, has maximized my appearance, always guided by what will be most beneficial for me. He is someone I go to for advice and care and his staff is another manifestation of this care. I don’t know many patients who can say this, and I feel fortunate to be among them.

In the four years that I've been a patient of Dr. Schultz, my acne-prone skin has gone from constant breakouts to smooth and clear. These days, I feel confident and comfortable enough in my skin to wear minimal makeup, if any—which I never would have done in years past. Dr. Schultz and his warm, friendly staff always go above and beyond; he takes the time to listen, talk with me, and create the best plan for my skin. It's clear he has my best interests in mind, and I trust him wholeheartedly. I would highly recommend him to friends, family, and frankly, anyone who asks.

Each session with Dr. Schultz is a mini education in skin care. He approaches each patient as a unique individual with different needs. I’m Asian and he’s explained to me how that impacts treatment in a clear manner that a layperson can understand. At each examination, Dr. Schultz recites detailed notes to his staff which he then refers back to at each future appointment, adjusting and tweaking treatment plans when necessary. Over the past two years I’ve seen a remarkable improvement in my blemishes and overall complexion and wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Schultz to anyone looking to enhance their appearance.

I have been a patient of Dr. Schultz for many years, and I continue to be amazed at his medical approach, patience, and professionalism. He takes the time to listen to my health concerns, explains how and why he would like to issue a treatment in a way that I understand , answers all of my questions, and all of his procedures and painless and thorough. Dr. Schultz is very attentive, results-oriented, and extremely knowledgeable. He follows up and is committed to my health and satisfaction. The Park Avenue Skincare is a calm environment and the staff are all very friendly, warm, and respectful. It's easy to get appointments at a time that works for me and they are always on time and considerate. I think so highly of Dr. Schultz and his practice that I sent my mom to him, and continue to go to his office even though my life is based in midtown west! I have great confidence in the care that Dr. Schultz gives.
