Butt Lift

This nonsurgical procedure will give your backside a fuller, more lifted look without the downtime and risks associated with surgical procedures. A nonsurgical butt lift will use dermal fillers such as Sculptra rather than a fat graft. It will not require liposuction because the injectable is a dermal collagen stimulator that will naturally and gradually produce volume after the treatment.

Cellfina

The only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to clear the underlying causes of cellulite, Cellfina™ works by targeting the fibrous bands under the dimpled areas of skin that cause cellulite. Releasing these bands will reduce the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs, with results that last for up to a year. Learn more about Cellfina™.

CoolSculpting

This procedure uses cryolipolysis to freeze and destroy stubborn fat. The damaged fat cells are slowly digested over several months by the body and will be removed through the liver.

With 4 devices, we are often able to perform dual or more applications at the same time to cut your CoolSculpting treatment time in half or more. In addition, the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York was the first practice in New York City and one of the first skin care clinic in the country to offer the new applicator, Cool Advantage™ by CoolSculpting®.  It performs the same level of efficacy, but with half the time. We are also one of the first centers to offer the brand-new FDA cleared applicator Cool Mini™ for the treatment of submental fat (double chin).

RESONIC

RESONIC™ is a Rapid Acoustic Pulse (RAP) device developed by Soliton, Inc. that utilizes a unique, rapid pulse of shockwaves to break apart the fibrous septa bands beneath the skin that cause cellulite. This is the only medical device that uses RAP to be FDA-cleared as a non-invasive treatment option for patients seeking a non-surgical approach to improving cellulite’s appearance. Soliton’s RAP device delivers rapid, high-pressure shockwaves at a rate of up to 100 pulses per second to effectively break apart the fibrous septa bands beneath the skin that contribute to dimples in cellulite. Its repetition rate and very short rise times can induce mechanical disruption to targeted tissue at the cellular level, without damaging the skin. The result is the dimples’ release and smoother skin.

Questions and Answers

Q: What Are The Benefits Of Contouring?

A: Body contouring procedures are excellent ways to eliminate persistent pockets of fat or cellulite caused by genetics, lifestyle, pregnancy, and breastfeeding, or significant weight fluctuations. It can also address aging and skin laxity concerns, since, over time, you lose collagen which causes the skin to lose tension and firmness, and to bunch and sag.

Because body contouring procedures are noninvasive, the procedures forgo the physical stress put on the body, whether through incisions, bleeding, or general anesthesia. Body contouring also offers great results that are natural-looking with no significant recovery time after the procedure. There is no limitation on your normal activities after the procedure is performed.

Q: How Do Body Contouring Procedures Work?

A: During a noninvasive body contouring procedure, a dermatologist will typically use a handheld device for targeting fat cells. The FDA has approved several handheld devices for body contouring. They work by sending cold, heat, radiofrequency energy, or sound waves directly into the fat cells to destroy them without causing damage to the surrounding skin.

Q: Are The Results Permanent?

A: You can expect consistent long-term results with our body contouring procedures. Since our noninvasive fat removal procedures kill the fat cells, they are permanently eliminated. The only way fat will return is when new fat is introduced. It is highly recommended to be consistent with regular exercise and a healthy diet to maintain your ideal results.

Q: When Will I See Results?

A: Results appear gradually. Depending on the procedure performed, you may begin noticing changes as early as 3 weeks, and the full effect between 3-6 months after the last treatment.

Q: What Is The Recovery Time?

A: Most people can return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. You may experience temporary swelling and bruising but will usually not cause any downtime.

Q: Are There Side Effects?

A: Aside from swelling and bruising, other possible side effects include a burning or stinging sensation in the treated area, but these are just temporary.

Q: How Long Does A Procedure Take?

A: On average, a session can last between 30-90 minutes. This will depend on the type of procedure and the number of treatment areas. Body contouring procedures may also require more than one treatment session to achieve optimal results. 

Q: Am I A Good Candidate For A Body Contouring Procedure?

A: You are a good candidate for a body contouring procedure if you have stubborn areas of fat that have become resistant to diet and exercise. You should also be near or at a healthy weight, and not significantly overweight. 

Q: Are The Results Of Non Surgical Treatments Similar To Those Obtained From Liposuction?

A: Liposuction will still deliver more dramatic results compared to the more subtle changes that a noninvasive body contouring procedure provides.
