Why Have Your CoolSculpting® Elite Procedure at Krauss Dermatology?
Our practice was one of the first in the Northeast to offer the CoolSculpting® procedure over a decade ago. Now we are the first in New England to treat patients with the Coolsculpting Elite® system. We have performed over 7,000 treatments. Unlike many offices and medispas, your CoolSculpting® Elite procedure will be performed by our board-certified dermatologists. We have treated thousands of patients with the highest level of safety and success.
How Does CoolSculpting® Elite Work?
CoolSculpting® Elite procedures are entirely non-invasive making them quick, easy, and virtually painless. The contouring treatment is done in-office and uses patented fat-freezing technology to effectively remove unwanted fat cells from the body. The CoolSculpting® Elite applicator is applied to the treatment area to selectively target isolated pockets of fat while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed.
Fat cells are crystallized (frozen) and begin to die. Eventually, your body naturally begins to metabolize the treated fat cells. Unlike similar treatments that solely reduce the size of fat cells, CoolSculpting® Elite helps completely flush damaged cells from the body leaving you with a more contoured physique.

Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting® Elite?
CoolSculpting® Elite is ideal for the patient who:
- watches what they eat
- wants a noninvasive procedure
- wants their clothes to fit better
- wants to look better in bathing suits
- has stubborn fat in the abdomen, hips, back, thighs, arms, or double chin
*Individual Results May Vary*
CoolSculpting® Elite is safe and effective for all skin types, textures, and tones. If you’re an otherwise healthy adult with isolated fat pockets, you’re most likely a good fit for the procedure. At the time of your in-person consultation, our expert providers at Krauss Dermatology will assess your candidacy for the procedure and customize a treatment plan to help you effectively meet your goals. You can also count on us to be completely honest if you are NOT a good candidate and would never steer you wrong.
What Areas Does CoolSculpting® Elite Treat?
CoolSculpting® Elite is safe and effective for reducing fat cells throughout the body. The nine FDA-clearedtreatment areas include:
- Abdomen & Flanks
- Inner/Outer Thighs
- Buttocks (Banana Roll)
- Upper Arms
- Back & Bra Fat
- Submental Fullness (Under-chin)
How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?
CoolSculpting® Elite treatments can vary significantly from patient to patient. Depending on the treatment area(s), you can expect your procedure to take anywhere from 30-60 minutes. Patients who would like to address two areas at once (i.e., inner/outer thighs) can do so in a single office visit.
CoolSculpting® Elite treatments are performed by a board-certified dermatologist to ensure an optimal outcome with minimal discomfort. Most patients watch movies on our iPad, read a magazine, work on their computers with our office WiFi, talk on the phone, or even nap during the procedure.
What Results Will I See?*
Many patients start to see initial results from their CoolSculpting® Elite treatment in just a month or two. Clothing will begin to have a better fit, and you’ll notice a more streamlined physique over the course of several months. Final results from CoolSculpting® Elite will be apparent about 3-4 months after your final session.
While you may be able to see a reduction of fat with one CoolSculpting® Elite appointment, the majority of patients need a series of treatments to achieve an optimal outcome. You may need anywhere from 2 or more sessions based on your short and long-term goals.
Ruptured fat cells that are metabolized by the body are unable to reform. That being said, CoolSculpting® Elite cannot prevent future fat from accumulating with considerable weight gain. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will allow you to enjoy your results from your CoolSculpting® Elite sessions for the rest of your life.
Is There Any Downtime or Side Effects?
There is no downtime, recuperation, needles, anesthesia, chemicals or surgery involved with CoolSculpting® Elite. Side effects are minimal and typically subside quickly. You may experience slight redness, swelling, or tenderness at or around the treatment site for several hours to several days.
Long term side effects with CoolSculpting are very rare. Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (a thickening of the treated area) historically has occurred in approximately 1 in 4,000 treatments and can often be improved with other methods. The newer, gentler applicators of Coolsculpting Advantage starting in 2016 made this unwanted side effect even less common and the much more comfortable handpieces of Cool Elite in 2021 have no reported cases of PAH reported.
