With more than 7 million treatments performed in the United States, CoolSculpting® Elite has become the go-to option for individuals who desire a more contoured look. As CoolSculpting Elite’s popularity has grown, so have the rumors about the treatment. The expert CoolSculpting Specialists at Red Mountain Weight Loss® debunk five myths so that you can decide if the treatment is right for you.

Myth 1: CoolSculpting Elite Will Help You Lose Weight

The most common myth about CoolSculpting Elite is that it’s a weight loss solution. CoolSculpting Elite is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that reduces the number of fat cells from the body, not the size. You may not lose weight, but you’ll look thinner.

Myth 2: CoolSculpting Elite Can Tighten Skin

Since CoolSculpting Elite affects fat cells under your skin, it doesn’t address skin laxity. Some patients do notice their skin “bounces back” after CoolSculpting Elite. However, it depends on the age and quality of the skin before treatment. If you want to address these concerns, we offer Venus Legacy™, a non-invasive skin tightening and cellulite reduction treatment.

Myth 3: CoolSculpting Elite Is Painful

CoolSculpting Elite requires no needles, incisions, or downtime. You can relax in our spa-like environment and watch TV, work on a laptop, read a book, or even take a nap during your treatment. There are no restrictions to your daily lifestyle after your appointment — you can even return to the gym the same day.

Myth 4: CoolSculpting Elite Doesn’t Work

At Red Mountain, we partner with patients who have met their weight loss goals and provide the last piece of their weight loss journey. It’s important to follow the treatment plan provided by our CoolSculpting Specialists for optimal results. If not, it can lead to less-than-ideal outcomes or make you feel like it didn’t work for you.

Myth 5: CoolSculpting Elite Is Only for Women

Women love CoolSculpting Elite — but so do men! We have helped many men over the years achieve a sculpted physique. Both women and men can expect an average of 20-25% fat reduction in the area(s) treated, such as the abdomen and flanks (or love handles), under the chin, and the jawline.
