What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive, non-surgical medical procedure that can remove fat cells from the body. It has several benefits over traditional surgical procedures, which makes it an attractive option for those considering removing excess weight in their bodies.

The CoolSculpting® procedure known as cryolipolysis freezes fat cells to destroy them. The original coolsculpting device used a vacuum to draw fat between two panels that cooled the area just enough so fat freezes but skin does not, causing only fat cells  to die by a process called “apoptosis”.  The frozen, dead fat cells are removed by the body over time.

Both Coolsculpting and Coolsculpting Elite procedures work best on people within 30 lbs of their ideal weight with a healthy lifecycle.  

The CoolSculpting® Elite is the latest innovation in Coolsculpting technology. 

Coolsculpting® has been used in our office for years with great success, but CoolSculpting® Elite is a more advanced treatment that offers excellent results while safer, more comfortable and delivers faster and better results. 

CoolSculpting®and CoolSculpting® Elite are both effective treatments for fat reduction, but CoolSculpting® Elite is superior

Why is CoolSculpting® Elite Better Than Coolsculpting®?

Here are some of the reasons why CoolSculpting® Elite is better than CoolSculpting®:

#1 Faster Results in Fewer Treatment Sessions

With the updated technology and engineering, patients are getting faster results than ever before. CoolSculpting® Elite now has two applicators on each machine so that you can freeze more fat in less time.

The dual applicators make it possible to treat a two areas at once rather than consecutively, reducing appointment times significantly.

#2 More Fat Reduction

The new CoolSculpting® Elite technology handpieces cool more tissue with each cycle due to superior contact with the treatment area with the newly designed handpieces.  Like the previous Coolsculpting device,  20-25% fat reduction is achieved in a single visit, however with the Elite, more tissue is treated with each handpiece making results better than ever.. 

#3 Redesigned Applicators are More Comfortable

The design of the CoolSculpting® Elite applicators has been improved. With previous coolsculpting treatments, you may have found them somewhat uncomfortable and tight. The new contour handpieces fit your body’s natural curves better for maximum results and comfort. The new C-shape instead of U-shaped contour also means less squeezing on the tissue.  Treatment is more relaxing, and post treatment soreness is minimal.

#4 Improved Safety Profile

The new patented technology reduces the squeezing on the area treated.  It is thought that squeezing reduced oxygenation of the treated fat and contributed to the potential side effect of Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia (PAH), where a treated area can get firm and grow larger instead of shrinking.  The incidence of this side effect is approximately 1 in 4,000 cycles over the past decade of Coolsculpting procedures.  Generally PAH can be treated with Kybella or Liposuction with good resolution, however side effects from these corrective treatments is possible.  No cases of PAH have yet been reported with the new Cool Elite system as yet, and we hope that the decreased pressure on the treated tissue will make this very uncommon side effect even more rare.

Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting® Elite?

CoolSculpting® Elite is a non-invasive, FDA-approved fat contouring method that could be ideal for patient who want to shape and contour their body without using surgical or liposuction procedures.
