  • Provide minimal recovery time.
  • Treat stubborn fat and excess skin that has become unresponsive to traditional methods of weight loss.
  • Provide cost-saving benefits.
  • Quick and efficient treatment.
  • Painless procedure.
  • Permanent results.

What Is CoolSculpting Elite?

Cleared by the FDA, CoolSculpting Elite is a fat-freezing treatment that eliminates fat cells from stubborn areas of the body, including:

  • Underneath the chin
  • Under the jawline
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Buttocks
  • Upper arms

Who Is a Candidate for CoolSculpting Elite?

Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting Elite are adults who are within at least 10-20 pounds of their ideal weight. Candidates must be able to maintain a stable weight after their treatment, as well as be non-smokers and free from underlying health conditions that may interfere with their recovery.

While body contouring treatment is highly effective at eliminating stubborn fat from the body, it cannot be considered a weight loss alternative. For this reason, patients who are overweight will not be eligible candidates for this procedure. People with Raynaud’s Syndrome or any disease based on cryoglobulinemia, cold urticaria, or loss of skin continuity due to prolonged exposure to freezing temperatures may also not be recommended for CoolSculpting Elite.

How Does CoolSculpting Elite Work?

Body contouring treatment with CoolSculpting Elite uses a specialized device that cools down the fat cells in each treatment area. Once frozen, these fat cells will die off, causing them to be eliminated from the body over time. Most commonly used in areas such as the stomach, thighs, or arms, it can take at least one month before patients notice results from their procedure.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Although a safe and effective treatment, CoolSculpting Elite still has a few common side effects that patients should be aware of. These side effects include:

  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Firmness
  • Pinching sensation
  • Skin sensitivity
  • Cramping

Other serious risks that may come from body contouring treatment include increased risk of nerve pain or paradoxical fat hyperplasia. However, these risks are rare, affecting 1 to 10 out of 10,000 CoolSculpting® and CoolSculpting® Elite treatments.

How Can I Prepare for Treatment with CoolSculpting Elite?

Preparing ahead of time for your CoolSculpting Elite body contouring treatment can help ensure a successful recovery. Before the day of your treatment, we recommend patients do the following:

  • Begin eating a balanced and nutritious diet.
  • Establish an exercise routine that will help you maintain a stable weight.
  • Wear comfortable clothing.
  • Avoid blood-thinning medications.
  • Increase your water intake and stay hydrated.

How Long Will the Results from CoolSculpting Elite Last?

Once your fat cells are frozen using CoolSculpting Elite, they will be eliminated for good, making the results from your body contouring treatment permanent. However, maintaining a stable weight is essential to keeping a contoured figure. Sudden and significant weight changes will affect the appearance of your results.

How Can I Achieve Optimal Results from My CoolSculpting Treatment?

Results from body contouring treatment using CoolSculpting Elite can be seen within four weeks of treatment. However, during this time, there are several things you can do to optimize the appearance of your results, including:

Gently massage the treated area:

During your recovery, we recommend patients massage the treatment site to help increase circulation, promote drainage, and break down the treated fat cells.

Practice a healthy lifestyle:

Just like in your preparation period, patients in recovery from CoolSculpting Elite treatment should stick to a balanced diet and exercise routine to prevent weight gain and the alteration of their results.

Stay hydrated:

Drinking plenty of water and staying hydrated will help energize your muscles and encourage the body to remove toxins.

Attend your follow-up visits with your body contouring provider:

Keeping up with your follow-up appointments after your CoolSculpting Elite treatment is essential to ensuring that your recovery is on track and that any complications can be identified early on.
