Where Can CoolSculpting® Be Used?
CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared to treat visible fat bulges in nine different areas of the body:
- Under the chin
- Under the jawline
- Bra fat
- Back fat
- Under the buttocks
- Upper arms
It is also FDA-cleared to affect the appearance of lax tissue under the chin area.
How Does CoolSculpting® Reduce Fat?
It took years for experts to develop the one-of-a-kind CoolSculpting® technology that freezes and kills fat cells. Scientifically called cryolipolysis, the process works because fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than the surrounding tissues such as nerves, muscle, skin, and vascular structures.
CoolSculpting® safely delivers precise, controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells under the skin. When the treated fat cells are frozen, they become crystallized and eventually die. Over time, your body will naturally metabolize and process the destructed fat cells and eliminate them, revealing a more sculpted figure in as little as three weeks!
Although it does eliminate fat cells, CoolSculpting® is not considered a weight loss treatment. You can expect to see the most significant results between one and three months after treatment.

What to Expect from Your Coolsculpting® Session in Warrendale, Pennsylvania
CoolSculpting® treatment is easy! You get to sit back, relax, and wave goodbye to your stubborn fat. CoolSculpting® is completely non-surgical and non-invasive.
During your session our medical provider will first identify the treatment area, then mark it to ensure the exact right location is targeted. Next, the provider places an applicator over the treatment area and engages a vacuum, causing the treatment area to be suctioned into the CoolSculpting® applicator. During the suction and controlled cooling, we’ll check to see whether you’re comfortable – and most patients report that they are.
Treatment cycles last between 35 to 75 minutes, during which you can watch TV, read, nap, or check emails – it’s up to you! After treatment you can immediately return to your normal activities, including work. Treated fat cells are gone for good in as early as three weeks following a session. You can expect to see the most dramatic results between one and three months after treatment.

CoolSculpting® Frequently-Asked Questions & Answers
Q: Am I a good candidate for non-invasive fat reduction at Cosmetic Laser Centers?
A: CoolSculpting® is specially designed for those who are at, or near, their ideal weight, but still have unwanted, stubborn fat. Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas that they have been unable to get rid of with diet and exercise. CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however, a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. You should not get CoolSculpting® if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia, paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, or cold agglutinin disease. To find out if CoolSculpting® is right for you, contact us and request a consultation.
Q: How much does the CoolSculpting® procedure cost?
A: The price of CoolSculpting® procedures will vary depending on your goals, the areas you want to target, and the number of cycles you need. At your consultation, we will work with you to create a customized treatment plan that is tailored to your body, goals, and budget. Our patients find that the cost of CoolSculpting® is well worth the incredible results they get.
Q: How long is each session? How many sessions will I need?
A: The number of CoolSculpting® sessions, and the lengths of those sessions, will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during each visit. Before we begin, we will create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. We will let you know if you should plan to schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals.
Q: Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?
A: CoolSculpting® results are permanent as long as you maintain your weight and lifestyle habits. Once the treated fat cells are frozen, your body processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells, and once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
Q: Don’t fat cells grow back?
A: We have a set number of fat cells in our bodies. Rather than multiplying as we gain weight, the cells themselves simply expand. In some areas of our bodies, we may have more fat cells than typical, which creates muffin tops and belly bulges. CoolSculpting® kills some of the fat cells, so they are no longer able to expand or contract with weight changes. Your body does not replace these fat cells.
Q: What does CoolSculpting® feel like?
A: CoolSculpting® is different from a laser treatment, which you may have had before. The CoolSculpting procedure will feel a bit chilly. For a few minutes, you will feel intense cold at the site of the applicator. You may also feel some tugging, pulling, and/or mild pinching. As the treated area becomes numb, these feelings will dissipate. Many people use their procedure session as time to relax, read, watch videos, or get some work done on their laptops.
Q: Is CoolSculpting® safe?
A: With more than one million CoolSculpting® treatments performed worldwide, it’s proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction. The CoolSculpting® procedure is FDA-cleared for submental fat (double chin), arms, bra fat/back fat, flank (love handles), abdomen, above the knees, lower buttock (banana roll), and inner and outer thighs.
Q: Are there side effects of CoolSculpting®?
A: During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness, or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, deep itching, tingling, stinging and pain. Rare side effects may also occur.
Q: Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
A: Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting® procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting® session is over.
Q: When will I see results?
A: Some people report they see immediate results, but it’s more likely you will start to see changes as soon as three weeks after your treatment. You will experience the most dramatic results after one to three months.
Q: Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?
A: No! No supplements or pills are required, and you don’t have to adopt new diet or exercise habits. You should, however, continue to make healthy food choices and exercise.
Q: What happens if I gain weight after CoolSculpting®?
A: Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting® treatment. However, if you do gain weight, your treated areas should gain at the same rate as the rest of your body.
