What is CoolSculpting Elite?
CoolSculpting Elite is the most advanced CoolSculpting treatment for non-surgical fat reduction. This new technology includes a wide range of applicators designed to fit better on the body’s natural curves and contours, providing more effective care. CoolSculpting technology uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat pockets that haven’t responded to diet and exercise. It is a great non-invasive alternative to other surgical procedures such as liposuction.
Who Is a Candidate for CoolSculpting Elite?
CoolSculpting Elite is intended for those who have excess fat in areas that don’t respond to traditional methods. CoolSculpting Elite is not a weight-loss procedure for people who are overweight. An ideal candidate for CoolSculpting Elite should be within 30 lbs of their ideal weight, looking to eliminate noticeable fat bulges in certain areas. This procedure is very popular because it benefits patients looking for even better results from their diet and exercise routine without a surgical procedure.
What Areas Can CoolSculpting Elite Treat?
- Back and bra fat
- Flanks/love handles
- Under the chin
How it Works
The CoolSculpting applicator safely delivers controlled cooling technology to gently and effectively freeze fat cells underneath the skin. As the fat cells are cooled, they begin to crystallize (freeze) and then die. Over the following weeks and months, your body naturally eliminates the dead cells, leaving you with a slimmer and sculpted shape. CoolSculpting Elite maintains the cooling sensation at a specific threshold that will only affect fat cells underneath the skin and not damage the skin itself. It is a safe and effective treatment for most patients.
Downtime & Side Effects
One of the most attractive characteristics of CoolSculpting Elite is the lack of downtime associated with treatment. At the beginning of the procedure, patients can expect to feel an intense cold sensation but after a few minutes, the area will become numb, making the procedure quite comfortable. Many patients multitask and catch up on their entertainment, work, or homework during the treatment session, which can take as little as thirty minutes.
The side effects of CoolSculpting are minor and usually resolve within a day or so. Some common side effects that patients experience include minor redness, bruising, and swelling that will resolve within a few days after treatment. During and immediately after your treatment, it is not uncommon to also feel tingling in the treatment area and some skin sensitivity.
