Why Choose CoolSculpting

Almost all women experience cellulite in their life. Diet and exercise do very little to remove these fat pockets.  Until recently, the only way to surgically remove them was through traditional liposuction. While effective, liposuction comes with recovery time and significant discomfort. CoolSculpting is a new, innovative treatment designed to reduce these areas of ugly fat deposits, without the recovery time of a more invasive procedure.How CoolSculpting Words

Can you really freeze away fat? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues.  CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately. Dr. Cherup has TWO coolsculpting machines, enabling you to complete your procedure 2x as fast!

In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. Read more about the procedure here. This treatment can be used to treat many different areas including the abdomen (Muffin Top), flanks (Love Handles), upper back (Bra Rolls), lower back, arms, double chin and male breasts.

Are you ready to love every view of you? The sooner you set up your consultation, the sooner you’ll see results in the mirror—long-term results in those areas that have resisted all efforts through diet and exercise.

Are You a Candidate for CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting can be a beneficial treatment for anyone frustrated with stubborn fat along the arms, legs, double chin or trunk. CoolSculpting is safe for men and women of any skin type or ethnicity. The procedure is not a weight loss alternative for those that are obese. The ideal candidate will have isolated areas of bulging fat that are resistant to exercise and diet.

Results and patient experience may vary.

Prior to scheduling a CoolSculpting treatment, you’ll meet with Dr. Cherup. At this time, she will perform a quick physical evaluation, discuss your goals, and help create a treatment plan to achieve your desired results either through CoolSculpting or other cosmetic procedures.

CoolSculpting Procedures

No Needles. No Surgery. No Downtime.

Coolsculpting procedures are completed over several office visits with results being  gradual. There is no recovery time but final results might not be seen for several months. Patients should not expect to feel any discomfort. Since Coolsculpting is a non-invasive procedure with no anesthesia required, patients with health issues that make them poor candidates for other types of surgery often CAN have this treatment.

Each CoolSculpting treatment will target one area per 35-45 minutes (depending on treatment). Radiance Plastic Surgery is one of the only aesthetic providers in Pittsburgh, PA with two CoolSculpting machines available. Double the treatment in half the time means a more efficient and worthwhile procedure.

Laser Tattoo Removal

Unlike older lasers which deliver heat to the pigment and surrounding tissue, the newly FDA approved PicoSure laser uses PressureWave Technology to shatter the ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body. The result is clearer skin after fewer treatments without injuring the surrounding skin. It also allows for the removal of stubborn blue and green inks as well as previously-treated, difficult tattoos.
