What can CoolSculpting do for you?

Fat cells can be permanently destroyed by cold temperatures. It’s a scientific fact.

The technology behind CoolSculpting was developed by medical scientists at Harvard University and the world-renowned Massachusetts General Hospital. CoolSculpting is an FDA cleared, noninvasive procedure which uses extreme cold to permanently destroy fat cells almost anywhere in the body. It’s not surgery, and there’s no downtime. When used properly and on the right candidates, CoolSculpting can provide long-lasting body contour improvements. It’s an excellent option for patients who want to achieve a slimming effect without invasive liposuction. And the Coolsculpting cost is less than the cost of Liposuction

Much like liposuction, CoolSculpting is best used on diet and exercise resistant pockets of fat. Areas where, despite our best efforts, fat seems to accumulate almost effortlessly. Are you generally fit, have reached a stable bodyweight, yet still have “problem” areas you’d like to get rid of? If you’ve reached a fat loss plateau, there’s a good chance CoolSculpting can help.

CoolSculpting is designed specifically to treat traditional problem areas. These include:

  • The abdomen (stomach area)
  • Love handles (flanks)
  • Beneath the neck (neck folds, double chin)
  • Bra area (upper torso fat deposits)
  • Thighs and legs
  • Male breasts (gynecomastia and pseudo-gynecomastia)
  • Upper arms
  • “Banana roll” deposits (beneath the buttocks)

CoolSculpting for the chin and neck

  • One of the primary benefits of CoolSculpting is the ability to treat very small areas. It’s particularly useful in regions containing smaller amounts of fat which may not require a full-fledged liposuction procedure. Fat deposits of the chin and neck, commonly known as a “double chin” or “turkey neck,” are perhaps the best examples.

The CoolSculpting system is highly adjustable and treatment for this area is essentially no different than the treatment of any other region. First, both the fat deposits and the overlying skin are suctioned into the unit’s treatment chamber. The tissue is then exposed to very short periods of extreme cold. This takes advantage of the fact that fat deposits are damaged via this intense cold before the overlying skin. In the weeks following your treatment the damaged fatty tissue is naturally passed from the body.

Put simply, many smaller areas contain too little fat for liposuction to be “worth it.” If this is the case it’s likely that CoolSculpting can deliver comparable results without more invasive liposuction surgery.

CoolSculpting for the upper arms

Another smaller area that’s ideally suited to CoolSculpting is the upper arms. These saggy, baggy fat deposits, unflatteringly known as “batwings,” are very close to the surface. This makes these deposits excellent candidates for CoolSculpting.

If any of the above has peaked your interest then you’re in good company. Many of our patients are interested in liposuction for their smaller problem areas. They’re also convinced that liposuction is simply too much procedure for the job—and they’re probably right. If this sounds like you then CoolSculpting may be your best option. The first step is a free, no obligation consultation. Call the Advanced Liposuction Center in Cranberry today at (724) 683-7581 to book yours. Evening and weekend appointments are often available.

CoolSculpting is:

  • Cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
  • Non-invasive
  • Can permanently destroy fat cells
  • Results look and feel natural—because they are

During each session, some of the fat cells in the area are damaged beyond repair. In the following months, these frozen cells are absorbed back into the body, never to return. This results in a gradual slimming, toning effect that isn’t achievable with any other competing treatment. Most patients see the bulk of their results during the first eight weeks, yet results can continue to develop for up to six months.

CLEARED BY THE US-FDA (Food and Drug Administration)

Developed by the Massachusetts General Hospital’s Wellman Center for Photomedicine, CoolSculpting is the only cold-based therapy for fat reduction cleared by the FDA. The treatment uses controlled bursts of extreme cold to terminate subcutaneous (beneath the skin) fat deposits. This fat-freezing technology is safe, comfortable, and effective on nearly any area of the body. It’s tough on stubborn fat, yet surprisingly easy on the body.


Each treatment takes about 1 hour. Patients typically report a sudden burst of cold, followed by a sensation of pressure. The treatment itself isn’t uncomfortable, with many patients even falling asleep! Most use the time to get some reading or a quick bit of work done.

What is the difference between CoolSculpting and liposuction?

CoolSculpting and liposuction are both methods of fat reduction, but they differ significantly in their approach and invasiveness. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that freezes and eliminates fat cells through controlled cooling. It requires no incisions, anesthesia, or downtime, making it a popular choice for those seeking a non-surgical option. However, it may require multiple sessions for optimal results.

On the other hand, liposuction is a surgical procedure that involves the physical removal of fat through small incisions using a suction device. It offers more immediate and precise fat removal but requires anesthesia, recovery time, and potential surgical risks.

How long does a CoolSculpting session typically last?

A CoolSculpting session typically lasts about 35 to 60 minutes per treated area. The exact duration can vary depending on factors such as the size and number of areas being treated during a single session. During the session, a specialized applicator is placed on the targeted area, and controlled cooling is applied to freeze and destroy fat cells beneath the skin. Patients can read, use electronic devices, or simply relax during the treatment. Since CoolSculpting is non-invasive, there is minimal discomfort and no downtime, allowing individuals to return to their daily activities immediately after the session.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is generally considered safe with minimal risks and side effects. Common side effects include temporary numbness, tingling, redness, swelling, and bruising at the treatment site, which typically resolve within days to weeks. Less common side effects may include paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH), where the fat cells enlarge instead of reducing. This is rare but can require additional treatment. It’s crucial to have a thorough consultation with a qualified provider who can assess your candidacy, discuss potential risks, and ensure that CoolSculpting is the right choice for you.

CoolSculpting is the only FDA cleared, cold-based fat reduction system available today. Much like liposuction, it’s highly invasive counterpart, CoolSculpting is specifically designed to target stubborn pockets of diet and exercise resistant fat. Reasons to choose CoolSculpting include:

  • It’s not a surgery
  • It’s completely non-invasive
  • There’s no anesthesia necessary
  • There’s very little downtime (or none at all)


The CoolSculpting system delivers precisely targeted cold therapy to safely target unwanted fat deposits beneath the skin. By design and through several safety features, the skin itself remains unaffected.

Before using the CoolSculpting system, practitioners must undergo a closely monitored training and certification process. These treatments are only performed in medical offices under the express supervision of a medical doctor.

The CoolSculpting device itself is equipped with both active and passive safety measures. If sensors detect that the treatment temperature is too cold, or if too much time has elapsed, the machine immediately powers off.

Discover The Possibilities Your initial visit

You’ll sit down with a CoolSculpting provider, who is usually a medical doctor, physician’s assistant, or a registered nurse. They’ll tell you about the process and answer any questions you might have. A focused medical history is then taken to find out if CoolSculpting is likely to be a safe, effective option for you.

At this point you’ll discuss your problem areas and exactly what you’d like to accomplish. You and your provider will view your body from various angles and develop a treatment plan. During the following visit’s you’ll receive treatment. It’s really that easy.
Everyone’s body is slightly different—your treatments will be tailored specifically to yours.

No two patients are exactly the same. This means that there’s no single “cookie cutter” treatment plan. Everyone has different problem areas, goals, and fat deposits can vary greatly in size. The CoolSculpting system has different settings and treatment attachments so plans are very customizable. Based on your provider’s expertise you’ll develop one which addresses your precise needs and is perfect for you!

Get rid of unwanted fat with CoolSculpting technology

Many patients find that several CoolSculpting treatments get rid of stubborn fat they’ve been bothered by for years. While you’ll certainly see results with a single treatment, you’ll most likely need two to three per area to achieve optimal, permanent results. Oftentimes patients have multiple areas treated. Depending on your facility’s CoolSculpting equipment it’s often possible to target several areas in a single session. When compared with the expense and downtime of traditional liposuction CoolSculpting is the obvious choice for many.

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.

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.
