5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

I Had Coolsculpting and Lost 2 Inches off my Waistline After Just 1 Month! - Manhattan

There are really no cons to this procedure. I lost inches and had absolutely no down time. I did it beacuse i work out regularly and could not get rid of the stubborn fat on my abdomen no matter how well i ate or how many situps i did.

Amazing Results! - New York

I've always had a flabby midsection (lost 50 pounds years ago and could never 'tighten up'). The Ziltiq procedure (3 hours) took inches off my midsection. Going back for a second treatment in a few weeks. It was a little painful (at first) but otherwise an amazing experience.

Zeltiq - Great Results - Manhattan

I had belly fat (muffin top) that peeked out above my jeans. This tackled the excess fat that I couldn't lose, no matter how hard I exercised or dieted, so it was worth doing. I had 5 applications done in the same day. 3 apps to my belly area and 1 on each flank (love handle area). Amazing results to ab area after about 3 months. I went back for two additonal applications to the...

Evolastin - New York, NY

In October 2011, I had the evolastin procedure performed by Dr. Lori Brightman at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center New York. I am extremely pleased with my result. My skin looks smooth and tighter. Dr. Brightman performed the procdure at the center and I was able to take a bus back to my apartment within the hour. I had very little down time and resumed my normal activities within a day. I...

New E2 Laser and Immediate Results! - New York, NY

Didn't like the "softening" look of my jawline and was interested in hearing about solutions to tighten. Dr. Brightman outlined the efficacy of this new combination laser - e2. Dr. Brightman is on the frontlines of the research related to the laser and ultimately has true knowledge regarding the quality of the results. Dr. Brightman used the e2 on one side of my jawline and we...

Fraxel Duel Vs Fraxel Resurfacing - New York, NY

I tried Fraxel duel three times and saw very little results, very disappointing. I then tried Fraxel resurfacing and was surprised to see some significant results. Its not a miracle worker but I did see atleast a 30% improvment in my deep acne scarring. Its been a month and I still have visible redness from the procedure.

She Makes Me Look Amazing Every Time! - New York, NY

I did it because my face was starting to look a little tired and gaunt. The results last for quite a bit of time, and my face looks better than it did when I was 22!
