What you need to know about CoolSculpting Elite
If your diet and a consistent gym schedule are no longer enough to help you reach your goals, it might be worth learning more about CoolSculpting® Elite. An advanced non-surgical body contouring treatment, it doesn’t require incisions or anesthesia and offers a non-invasive alternative to procedures like liposuction.
How does CoolSculpting Elite work?
Based on the concept of cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting® Elite uses a patented technology to target and destroy stubborn fat pockets that reside directly under your skin. Over time, your body eliminates dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
What is the difference between CoolSculpting® and CoolSculpting® Elite?
CoolSculpting® Elite is an advanced version of the original CoolSculpting® procedure. While both treatments are based on the same cryolipolysis technology and aim to reduce stubborn fat pockets, there are several key differences between CoolSculpting® and CoolSculpting® Elite:
- The Elite system has been updated to include a variety of applicator sizes and shapes that can better target different areas of the body, allowing for more precise and customizable treatments based on individual body shapes and goals, improved tissue contact, and enhanced cooling efficiency.
- The Elite system has the ability to treat multiple areas simultaneously, making the treatment process more efficient. This is especially beneficial for individuals who wish to address multiple areas in a single session, reducing the overall treatment time.
- CoolSculpting® Elite offers shorter treatment times compared to the original CoolSculpting®. With the enhanced cooling technology and larger treatment area, the Elite system can provide more efficient treatments, potentially reducing the time required for each session.
What areas of the body can be treated with CoolSculpting Elite?
CoolSculpting Elite can address those stubborn areas that are resistant to diet and exercise, helping you achieve a more sculpted appearance. These areas include the abdomen, flanks (love handles), thighs, upper arms, chin, and more.
What should I expect during my treatment?
During your CoolSculpting® treatment, a gel pad and applicator are applied to the targeted area. Controlled cooling is then delivered to the targeted fat so you may feel intense cold, but this sensation typically subsides within 10 minutes as the area becomes numb. Many people read, check email or even nap during their sessions. Afterward, patients are usually able to return to normal activities.
Can I customize my CoolSculpting Elite treatment?
The CoolSculpting Elite applicators are designed to fit different areas of the body, allowing for customized treatment plans tailored to your specific needs. The providers at Timeless Skin Solutions will assess your goals and determine the best approach to help you achieve them.
Is there downtime following treatment?
After the treatment, most people can resume their normal activities immediately. There is little to no downtime associated with CoolSculpting Elite, allowing you to return to work or other daily routines without significant interruption.
What type of results can I expect with CoolSculpting Elite?
The fat cells that are targeted by CoolSculpting Elite are gradually eliminated by the body over several weeks to months. This gradual process helps ensure that the results appear natural and not sudden or drastic.
Patients can expect to see a noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area, an average of 20-23%. Once treated, the fat cells are gone for good and you will no longer store fat in these areas. Additional treatments in the same or multiple areas can help enhance the desired aesthetic effect. While some patients may see results as early as 3 weeks after their session, most dramatic results are usually seen 1-3 months after treatment.
It’s important to note that CoolSculpting Elite is not a weight loss solution but rather a body contouring treatment. It is best suited for individuals who are close to their ideal body weight and have specific areas of fat they want to address.
Are there risks associated with CoolSculpting Elite?
There is a very minimal risk due to the non-invasive nature of CoolSculpting® Elite. After the procedure, some patients may experience redness, tingling, minor bruising, or numbness in the treated areas. This is temporary and pain medication is not required during treatment. Of course, results and patient experiences may vary.
