Why choose us for CoolSculpting?

Dr. Kayastha was the first person to offer CoolSculpting in the Capital District. He has years of experience evaluating and treating patients with CoolSculpting. Every potential patient is evaluated personally by Dr. Kayastha to ensure that they are a good candidate for the procedure. If you are not a good candidate for CoolSculpting or if another procedure may better help you achieve your goals Dr. Kayastha will tell you so. If you have a consultation with someone who is not a plastic surgeon they cannot adequately discuss alternative treatments with you and are unlikely to tell you if you are not a good candidate for CoolSculpting. Dr. Kayastha has seen many patients who have spent their hard-earned money on CoolSculpting when they were not a good candidate for it.

What is a CoolSculpting?

Stubborn fat can be present almost anywhere on the body and can be nearly impossible to remove with diet and exercise alone. Liposuction is a popular body contouring procedure but requires medication, incisions, downtime, and risks associated with minimally invasive surgery. Now, patients can say goodbye to their stubborn fat with the help of CoolSculpting a non-invasive procedure with minimal to no downtime. With controlled cooling technology, CoolSculpting can freeze your stubborn fat away for good.

We are excited to add the latest CoolSculpting® applicator to our arsenal for freezing fat. This new applicator allows us to treat the thighs. Unlike the previous applicators, it is not vacuum-based. Therefore it can treat areas that were not able to be “CoolSculpted” before. This is ideal for the outer thighs and other areas of non-pinchable fat bulges. Dr. Kayastha was the first physician in the Capital District to offer CoolSculpting® to his patients and therefore has the longest experience with this exciting technology. Dr. Kayastha will tailor the optimal CoolSculpting® treatment regimen for you. All consultations for CoolSculpting® are performed by Dr. Kayastha personally and not a nurse or staff member. Dr. Kayastha personally adjusts the settings for the device during your treatment to get you the maximum effect. He also carefully hooks you up to the machine to ensure your safety and comfort.  Patients who have received CoolSculpting from Dr. Kayastha have experienced incredible fat reduction results.

What can I expect after CoolSculpting?

The results of CoolSculpting are up to a 25% reduction in fat in the treatment area, which can be compounded with multiple treatment sessions.

What happens if you gain weight after CoolSculpting?

Because the fat cells are destroyed, rather than shrunk, if you gain weight after a CoolSculpting regimen, you will do so proportionally with the figure youve achieved with CoolSculpting.

Is CoolSculpting for everyone?

CoolSculpting is safe for any skin type, although it may not be recommended for patients with certain underlying conditions such as autoimmune disorders.

Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

Crylipolysis is the scientific term for what happens during CoolSculpting treatments. It is the killing off of fat cells through cooling them to destructive temperatures. Fat freezing does not affect other vital tissues like the skin or blood vessels.

CoolSculpting can be a highly effective way to reduce under-chin fat that causes a puffy or double-chin appearance. CoolSculpting applicators are specifically designed for this treatment, although it does not tighten skin if that is of concern
