Treatment Information

The Pittsburgh CoolSculpting procedure is a non-surgical, non-invasive, med-spa treatment performed in about an hour, depending upon the area being treated.

CoolSculpting fat loss treatment uses a targeted cooling technology to eliminate fat cells below the surface of the skin.

During a Pittsburgh CoolSculpting procedure, the CoolCurve non-invasive applicator gently cools the targeted fat cells to the point of freezing.

When frozen, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from the body, resulting in a gradual reduction of the fat layer without damage to the surrounding tissue.

Results are typically seen within three weeks of the fat reduction treatment; most dramatic results occur over a period of two to four months.

When treating larger areas of the body using the CoolCurve™ applicator patients may experience mild pressure and a gentle cooling sensation as the targeted area is drawn up to the cooling applicator and between the cooling panels; this sensation lasts for just a couple of minutes.

Smaller areas of the body, such as inner and outer thighs, upper arms and upper back (bra roll), are treated with the smaller CoolSmooth™ applicator. The CoolSmooth applicator uses a non-suction based cooling application to eliminate fat from areas of the body that do not have “pinchable pockets of fat”. The new CoolSmooth applicator allows for more precise body sculpting on even the smallest problem areas.

Now, the most popular non-surgical fat reduction treatment is approved for use under the chin to improve the appearance of the “double chin”. Using the same technology as the CoolCurve, the CoolSculpting CoolMini™ applicator eliminates fat under the chin and improves the contours of the neck.

Once the cooling applicators are in place, people often read or relax until the CoolSculpting treatment is complete -- typically about an hour.

  • No needles
  • No anesthesia
  • No incisions required

Most people return to their normal activities immediately following the CoolSculpting treatment.

CoolSculpting Technology

CoolSculpting technology was developed by Harvard scientists after a simple observation was made -- children who ate a lot of popsicles had dimpling in their cheeks due to a loss of fat from the excessive exposure to cold.

This novel idea lead to the innovative cooling process behind CoolSculpting called Cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis is the process of gently cooling fat to the point of freezing.

When fat cells are exposed to precise cooling temperatures, the fat cells crystallize causing the fat cells to naturally die, a process called apoptosis.

The fat is eliminated through the body's natural metabolic process, in the same manner that fat in food is eliminated from the body.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are multiple CoolSculpting body contouring procedures needed?
After just one CoolSculpting body contouring procedure, most people will see a significant reduction in fat to the treated area. Generally, only one CoolSculpting treatment is needed to see undeniable, noticeable results. Results are typically seen within three weeks of the fat reduction treatment; most dramatic results occur over a period of two to four months. However, additional CoolSculpting treatments can be performed if additional fat reduction is desired.
Who is a good candidate for Pittsburgh CoolSculpting Treatments?
The ideal candidate for CoolSculpting body contouring treatment is a person who is at or near their ideal weight and is struggling to eliminate unwanted bulges or stubborn pockets of fat. CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution and is not appropriate for people who are obese. CoolSculpting is appropriate for people wanting to re-contour their body through gradual fat reduction.
Is there pain associated with CoolSculpting Treatments?
Most patients do not report any pain during a CoolSculpting treatment; however most patients do describe it to be slightly uncomfortable when the cooling process begins. At first, there is a sudden tugging sensation (not pain) as skin is being suctioned into the device. As the cooling process begins, the treatment area will feel intensely cold for first 10 minutes, followed by numbness for the remainder of the hour. When the device is removed, you may feel tenderness as the area “thaws” for 1-2 minutes. Once the procedure is over, you should not feel any pain as you resume normal activities. There may be some minor redness and possible bruising. Some patients feel tingling or twitching sensations for the first few days. Numbness may continue for several weeks as normal sensation gradually returns. In very rare occasions, some people may experience temporary nerve pain that dissipates in the weeks or months following treatment.
