What is Coolsculpting Elite?

CoolSculpting® freezes fat cells and naturally eliminates them. You'll work with your provider to determine if you’re a candidate and develop a personalized treatment plan. We use cryo lipolysis, otherwise known as fat freezing, to freeze the fat cells in the treated area. Following treatment, the body will naturally eliminate the dead fat cells, which can result in up to 20-25% reduction of stubborn fat in the treated area. CoolSculpting® is cleared to eliminate stubborn fat under the jawline, under the chin, the upper arms, back fat, bra fat, the flank area (love handles), abdomen, thighs, and under the buttocks (banana roll).

What to expect

  • Personalized treatment plans include how many CoolSculpting® treatment sessions you’ll need to see your desired result. A treatment session is each time you come in for a treatment appointment with your provider. Each session may include multiple CoolSculpting® treatments. Two or more treatment sessions are recommended for many patients to reach their body contouring goals.

  • Your provider will take clinical photographs to help you track your before, during, and after progress.

  • Next, your provider will outline the area to be treated, apply a gel pad to create a barrier between the applicator and your skin, and then place the applicators on your body.

  • As treatment begins, you’ll feel a light vacuum pressure and an intense cold. After approximately 10 minutes or so, the area being treated will become temporarily numb.

  • Everyone has their own sensitivity to discomfort, but most patients do not find the treatment painful. In fact, many people say they like to read, catch up on email, watch TV shows, or even take a nap.

  • When each treatment ends, the applicator(s) and gel pad are removed. The treated area is then massaged for 2 minutes to help break up the fat cells.

  • On average, each treatment session is as little as 35-75 minutes per cycle (treatment), depending on the area treated. Each session is 1-3 hours on average. If you are treated with a CoolSculpting® Elite machine, dual applicators can treat two places at the same time.

  • Since CoolSculpting® has little to no downtime, you can go back to your busy day.

  • CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss procedure. Continue to maintain your usual diet and exercise routine.

  • Since many patients receive more than one treatment session, you may return for additional treatments in 6-8 weeks.

  • Your body will naturally eliminate the treated fat cells. Typically, it takes 1-3 months to see results, with full results taking 6 months or more.

  • After your treatment plan is complete, don't forget to ask to see your before, during, and after photographs!
