CoolSculpting Q & A

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared noninvasive body contouring system that uses cooling energy to zap away unwanted fat cells. The aesthetic professionals at Pineapple Health use the safe and effective treatment to help reshape a number of problem areas, including:

  • Belly and love handles
  • Back
  • Muffin top
  • Inner and outer thigh
  • Upper arm

Pineapple Health can also use CoolSculpting to get rid of your double chin.

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting literally freezes your fat cells and destroys them. When placed over the treatment area, the cooling energy generated by CoolSculpting targets the fat cells under your skin, and without causing any damage to your skin, freezes the cells and destroys their structure. Once destroyed, your body processes the cells through your lymphatic system and gets rid of them for good.

Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting?

Your aesthetic specialist at Pineapple Health conducts a thorough examination to determine if you’re a good candidate. CoolSculpting isn’t meant to serve as a means to treat obesity, but to help contour your body and improve your shape.

To be considered, you should be close to your desired weight with a body mass index of 30 or less, be following a healthy diet, and be engaging in an exercise program.

What can I expect during treatment?

CoolSculpting is a painless procedure. During treatment, your aesthetic specialist places a gel pad and the applicator on your trouble area and then activates the system. You may feel a tugging sensation as the applicator vacuums your fat and an intense coolness when the applicator begins the fat-freezing process, but the cold goes away in 10 minutes or less.

Treatment may take 30-60 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. There’s no downtime following CoolSculpting body contouring, so you can go right back to your usual activities when you’re done.  

How long does it take to see results?

You may notice an improvement in your shape after only three weeks of treatment, but you’ll see the most dramatic effects after eight weeks. Your body continues to eliminate the destroyed fat cells for up to six months.

Pineapple Health recommends you continue your healthy lifestyle to help maintain results.
