Coolsculpting: What to Expect

Your Guide for Non-Invasive Fat Reduction Treatments

Treatment Answers

What is CoolSculpting® and Does it Hurt?

CoolSculpting® is a treatment that works to non-surgically and non-invasively remove targeted portions of fat from places like your belly, thighs, and arms. It uses a special technique called cryolipolysis. This occurs when your provider at Cosmetic Laser Centers applies an applicator  on the treatment area and initiates cooling to that area. Once the treatment is over, your body will eliminate the fat naturally.

CoolSculpting® treatments are virtually pain-free. Some people report minor discomfort at the beginning of treatment, but this sensation usually disappears quickly.

What Are the Benefits of CoolSculpting® in Pittsburgh?

You can receive precise and controlled fat reduction in areas that you just can’t seem to slim down through diet and exercise. CoolSculpting® doesn’t require surgery, so you never have to worry about scars, post-surgical garments, or taking time away from your family or work.

CoolSculpting® providers at Cosmetic Laser Centers are medically trained and certified in fat reduction treatments, in order to give you the best results possible. Plus, CoolSculpting®  technology is only getting better and safer with new products and upgrades available.

How Long Do CoolSculpting® Treatments Take?

CoolSculpting® can provide incredible fat reduction in places like your inner thighs, arms, and stomach in just about 35 minutes per treated area. Even better, most people choose to take time during their CoolSculpting® treatments to relax by watching television, reading a book, or taking a quick nap.

What Are the Details on Downtime With CoolSculpting®?

The best part about CoolSculpting® is that it requires zero downtime, because it’s non-surgical. Many people choose to get fat reduction treatments during their lunch breaks, so they can head back to work as soon as treatment is over.

You can get up to 25% fat reduction in a treated area, without needing a single stitch! All you need to do is drink extra water for a few weeks, in order to give your body an extra boost flushing out fat.

When Do I Get to See Results With CoolSculpting® Treatments?

It takes time for your body to safely remove the destroyed fat cells from CoolSculpting®, so you won’t start seeing results for about 2 to three weeks after your treatment. It typically takes a minimum of two treatments to achieve maximum results.

Just remember CoolSculpting® in Pittsburgh can take away those pesky pockets of fat that you’ve been working hard to get rid of on your own with no kind of surgery or downtime. You can even choose to have two areas treated at the same time, in order to get the body you’ve been working for much faster.

What Are the Side Effects of CoolSculpting®?

You might experience minor side effects like redness, swelling, bruising, and swelling. However, these are temporary and go away with no further treatment from your provider. 

Major side effects with CoolSculpting® like paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH) are extremely rare and only occur in .0051% of CoolSculpting® patients.

Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting® in Pittsburgh?

It should be noted that CoolSculpting®  is a fat reduction treatment and not a weight loss solution. If you’re within 30 pounds of your ideal weight, in good health, and tired of stubborn areas of fat, then this treatment might be right for you. The only way to know for sure is by scheduling a consultation with a provider.
