About the CoolSculpting Treatment:
The 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 CoolSculpting procedure, a 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.
During the first few minutes of a CoolSculpting treatment, 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.
As this feeling dissipates, 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 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.
It's never been easier to sculpt the body you want without the downtime associated with surgery.
- Noticeable and lasting results
- Little to no downtime
- No special diet
- Natural-looking reduction of fat in the treated area
The cost of CoolSculpting at The Skin Center Medical Spa in Pittsburgh will vary from patient to patient depending on the number of areas being treated and ultimately the body sculpting goals. To estimate the cost, and develop an individual treatment plan we encourage you to schedule a complimentary consultation.

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.
