CoolSculpting™ technology, introduced by Zeltiq Aesthetics, has become a popular and successful treatment for patients seeking to eliminate stubborn fat cells. In fact, CoolSculpting™ is the most requested noninvasive procedure for fat reduction and Zeltiq was named the #1 medical device company in the United States in 2014. The treatment is based upon a medical and scientific process called Cryoliposis, which freezes fat cells, causing them to eventually disintegrate and flush from the body without risk of the fat returning.
Dr. Ron Shelton, board-certified dermatologist specializing in many advanced areas of the field, including Moh’s Micrographic Surgery for cancer treatment, and cosmetic and surgical dermatology, incorporated the CoolSculpting™ procedure into his practice when the technology was introduced and has been achieving significant patient outcomes since.
Dr. Shelton and our team at Laser and Skin Surgery Center of New York, conveniently located in midtown Manhattan, is pleased to offer the latest version of CoolSculpting™ revolutionary treatment, using the same advanced science of freezing fat to permanently eliminate the stubborn deposits using noninvasive technology.
Because of Dr. Shelton’s significant experience and high patient satisfaction with CoolSculpting™, our office was one of the select practices to serve as a research facility for CoolMini™, which has recently been cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of fat under the chin, often referred to as double chin or turkey neck. In a clinical trial, 60 patients between 22 and 65 years of age achieved an average of 20 percent reduction in the appearance of double chins. As with CoolSculpting™, when the fat is removed, it will not return to the area again.
In addition to being one of the more experienced physicians with the new technology of CoolMini™, Dr. Shelton is an award winning physician, professor, and author, as well as a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology who has had extensive training in many specialty areas of dermatology, including aesthetic and cosmetic dermatologic surgery.
Respected by patients and peers in NYC, Dr. Shelton was previously located in Upper East Side. Our practice is now located in midtown Manhattan at 317 East 34th Street. Call us today at 212.561.5808 today.
