The truth is that sometimes stubborn fat won’t budge, no matter how strict your diet or how intense your workout is. CoolSculpting® Elite targets those problem areas to provide noticeable and lasting results to help you look and feel your very best.
What Is CoolSculpting Elite?
CoolSculpting® Elite eliminates unwanted fat from areas that diet and exercise alone can’t tackle. This body contouring treatment targets the look of the body, rather than the weight distribution itself. This treatment is for patients just within reach of their ideal body goals (10-15 pounds), but stubborn fat prohibits them from looking their best.
How CoolSculpting Elite Eliminates Stubborn Fat
While this isn’t a weight loss solution, it is a type of nonsurgical fat removal that gives you the appearance of a more sculpted, leaner look.
CoolSculpting Elite utilizes a method called cyrolipolysis to freeze fat cells without needles, incisions, or surgery. Your body will then naturally eliminate the unwanted fat cells, which can result in a 20-25% reduction of stubborn fat in the treated area. The treatment is FDA-cleared to address nine areas of the body:
- Flanks (love handles)
- Inner and outer thighs
- Upper arms
- Below the buttocks (banana roll)
- Bra or back area
- Under the chin
Most patients see results in the first treatment session, as the process is permanent.
CoolSculpting® vs. CoolSculpting Elite: What Is the Difference?
CoolSculpting Elite provides a more efficient by-product for candidates wanting to obtain their body goals now, at a much faster rate than before. The system is simple: It uses extreme cold to burn fat cells, leaving your body more contoured without the strenuous recovery time of surgery. Here is how it compares to the CoolSculpting legacy device:
|Treatment Areas||FDA cleared to treat 9 areas of the body.||FDA cleared to treat 9 areas of the body.|

|Applicator||One C-shaped applicator to treat a single area at a time.||Two C-shaped applicators per machine to treat two areas at once.|
|18-20% fat removal is achieved after treatment.||20-25% fat removal is achieved after treatment.|
What to Expect During the Treatment Process
No changes to your daily routine need to occur before the session. Once you arrive for your appointment, the Medical Aesthetician will discuss the treatment plan and capture before photos of the treatment area(s).
During the treatment, the applicator will be placed in the designated area. You may feel a pulling or tugging sensation once the cooling process begins, but it should disappear as the numbing commences. Feel free to work on your laptop or simply relax once the treatment has started.
There is minimal downtime after a CoolSculpting Elite treatment. This means you may return to any activities or tasks with no restrictions. Over time, you will notice a gradual reduction in the thickness of the fat layer. You may start to see results as early as three weeks, but most dramatic results are seen after two to four months. For optimal results, additional treatment sessions may be recommended.
