For patients looking to get rid of hard-to-eliminate fat, CoolSculpting® Elite is an innovative body sculpting treatment that targets problem areas and permanently destroys stubborn fat cells — without having to undergo an invasive plastic surgery procedure.
As the latest addition to the CoolSculpting® line, CoolSculpting® Elite takes safety, comfort, and efficiency to a whole new level, delivering the same transformative results quicker and smoother than ever.
What is CoolSculpting® Elite?
CoolSculpting® Elite is an FDA-cleared procedure that exposes targeted fat areas to cold temperatures using a specialized machine. Since fat is more sensitive to cold than the rest of the body’s cells, the frozen cells die off and are naturally eliminated from the body in the weeks and months following treatment, resulting in a slimmer, trimmer look.
CoolSculpting® Elite is not a weight loss solution. Rather, it works best for individuals who maintain a healthy weight but are simply looking to eliminate fat in problem areas that are resistant to diet and exercise.
CoolSculpting® Elite features a new and improved dual applicator that comfortably hugs your body’s natural curves to treat several areas even more effectively. It permanently removes up to 20-25% of fat cells in the chin, jawline, abdomen, flanks, bra fat, back fat, arms, thighs, and buttocks.
Frequently Asked Questions
Some of the most common questions we’re asked about CoolSculpting® Elite include:
Am I a Candidate for CoolSculpting® Elite Fat Reduction?
The best candidates for CoolSculpting® Elite are individuals who are generally healthy and near their target weight, and who wish to eliminate unwanted fat from stubborn areas like the back, belly, and “love handles.” When you visit Evolve Medical Associates for a consultation, we’ll take the time to get to know you, your lifestyle, and your medical history to determine if CoolSculpting® Elite is the best solution for you.
Does CoolSculpting® Elite Hurt?
CoolSculpting® Elite is a non-invasive procedure with minimal discomfort. At the beginning of your session, you may experience mild sensations of tingling, pinching, aching, cramping, or cold, but they often dissipate as the treatment area numbs.
How Long Does a CoolSculpting® Elite Session Take?
Sessions typically last one to two hours but vary based on the size and number of areas being treated. Thanks to CoolSculpting® Elite’s new dual applicators, you can target two areas of fat at the same time, significantly reducing the length of your service.
How Many CoolSculpting® Elite Sessions Will I Need?
While it depends on your aesthetic goals and the size of the areas being treated, most patients see significant results after just one session! Since optimal outcomes vary from person to person, we’ll craft an individualized treatment plan and estimate how many sessions you’ll need during your consultation.
How Much Does CoolSculpting® Elite Cost?
The cost of CoolSculpting® Elite depends on how many treatments are needed to help you achieve your body contouring goals. It also depends on the areas being treated, as we use differently sized applicators to effectively target various areas of the body. If we decide CoolSculpting® Elite is right for you, we’ll be able to give you a better idea of the overall cost at your consultation.
When Can I Resume Normal Activities After CoolSculpting® Elite?
CoolSculpting® Elite has zero downtime and only mild side effects of pain, numbness, redness, or swelling that wear off in the days following your treatment. These can be further minimized with over-the-counter pain relievers, meaning you can go right back to work after your CoolSculpting® Elite treatment session!
When Can I Expect to See Results?
The body takes time to naturally eliminate the destroyed fat cells from the treatment area. While outcomes vary for everyone, most patients notice a difference in as little as three weeks, with maximum results showing around three months.
How Long Do CoolSculpting® Elite Results Last?
When you lose weight, fat cells are not eliminated — they only shrink. CoolSculpting® Elite removes these cells, ensuring that once they’re dead, they never come back. However, if you gain weight in the future, it would be evenly distributed throughout your body, even in the treatment area. Therefore, CoolSculpting® Elite results can be permanent when maintained.
