Dr. Clark Interviewed on NY1 About CoolSculpting
In August, Dr. Clark was interviewed by Cheryl Wills of NY1, who wanted to know all about the benefits of cryolipolysis as delivered by the CoolSculpting procedure, over liposuction or any other fat reducing procedures. This interview generated so much interest that it was replayed in November and March.
Here is the article Cheryl wrote for the NY1 website (http://www.ny1.com/content/ny1_living/health/167712/cool-device-gives-love-handles-the-cold-shoulder). You can see the full interview via this link, or by clicking http://www.youtube.com/user/sherylclarkmd

Cool Device Gives Love Handles The Cold Shoulder
There's new hope for people who are physically fit but have a stubborn bulge around the middle. NY1's Cheryl Wills filed the following report.
Fifty-something-year-old Noemi Castro-Feinstein is like millions of Americans: She's healthy and physically fit but no matter what she does she can still pinch more than an inch.
"With the baby, even though you exercise you have a tiny little reminder that it was stretched out to capacity," says Castro-Feinstein.
Dr. Sheryl Clark, a dermatologist on Manhattan's Upper East Side, uses a device called coolsculpting to get rid of stubborn fat around the middle and the lovehandles. She explains that the applicator is really more like a vacuum with two plates inside.
"And when this is applied the vacuum will take her skin up and it's rather a dramatic effect," says Clark.
Once applied, the cold air rushes in within seconds and the plates clamp down on the bulge, causing fat cells to slowly disintegrate.
"The cold is constantly monitored because you don't want to freeze the skin. That could cause frostbite," notes Clark.
Dr. Clark says there are no risks associated with the procedure. Patients experience just a little tenderness in the treated area because they have to sit still while the applicator sucks the skin for an entire hour. But Dr. Clark says the procedure reduces bulges over time by at least 25 percent and the results are permanent.
Starting Early, and Young
The New York Times
DR. AMI SHAH NAGARAJAN, 38, a specialist in integrative medicine who lives in Manhattan, estimates that she spends $150 a month on Mustela and California Baby products for her 3-year-old twins. “I spend more on my kids than I do for myself,” she said. “It’s worth it to me to get something pure for them.”
While Dr. Nagarajan said she was mindful of using beauty products with minimal chemicals even before she had children, other mothers have become more conscientious after giving birth. Zoe Schaeffer, 35, who lives in Los Angeles and has a mothering blog, Macaroon Original, said she spends $150 to $200 a month on a variety of natural lines for her three children, 3 months to 4 years old.
The New York Times
...During heating season, daily use of a moisturizer product is more important than daily bathing, according to Dr. Sheryl Clark, a dermatologist affiliated with the New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center. Take brief showers and baths, use mild soap (for example, Dove or Neutrogena) and use tepid water, since hot water is more drying. Most people need not soap their entire body every time they bathe. Add bath oil after you have been in the tub at least five minutes. Pat -- don't rub -- your skin dry and, while your body is still slightly damp, apply a cream moisturizer that contains water and oil.
Wear rubber gloves when doing household chores that involve water. Outdoors wear clothing, including a face mask, to protect your skin from drying winds. Apply a moisturizer to exposed skin, including your lips, before going out. If your skin is sensitive, Dr. Clark suggests avoiding products that are scented or that contain lanolin. Don't lick dry lips; that dries them even more. Keep hand lotion at home and at work and use it as often as possible....
The New York Times
...Dr. Ronald Sherman and Dr. Sheryl Clark, dermatologists, offered these suggestions for those considering spa treatments:
* If you have a heart ailment, avoid any treatment that causes sweating and dilation of blood vessels. These include steam baths, saunas and some wrap treatments.
* If your skin is sensitive from using Retin-A, make sure the skin-care specialist avoids drying lotions and masks, and avoid treatments that further thin the skin, like peels.
* If you have a history of eczema, hay fever, asthma or allergies, make sure that only fragrance-free products are used on your skin.
* If your skin has broken out, avoid having it massaged.
* Pregnant women should avoid all body treatments unless they have clearance from their doctors....
