It can be challenging and sometimes impossible to achieve your desired physique using traditional methods such as dieting and exercising. Some men and women turn to liposuction, a surgical procedure that involves removal of the fat using a hollow cannula and suction, to refine their contours. However, not all patients want to undergo or even qualify for surgery. CoolSculpting® Elite is an innovative approach that reduces localized fat without the need for invasive surgery or inconvenient downtime. This modern fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure that utilizes controlled cooling to target and destroy stubborn fat cells safely. CoolSculpting® Elite results are customizable, natural, and long lasting, making it one of the most effective body contouring solutions on the market.

- The Process
- How It Works
- Recovery and Results
Every CoolSculpting® Elite treatment plan is personalized to the patient’s unique figure and aesthetic desires. During the appointment, the state-of-the-art device is applied to the designated regions, and controlled cooling is delivered. There are seven different applicators to choose from, and CoolSculpting® Elite allows us to treat two areas of the body at the same time. The length of each session depends on the area or areas to be treated. Most patients usually use this time to read, watch TV, or even take a nap.
How It Works
CoolSculpting® Elite works through a process called cryolipolysis, during which fat cells are frozen and eliminated. The applicator delivers intense cooling to the fatty tissue without damaging the surrounding skin, nerves, or vessels. The body then naturally and gradually metabolizes the crystallized cells and discards them as waste.*
*Results and patient experience may vary.
Recovery and Results
Because this is a non-surgical procedure, those who choose to undergo CoolSculpting® Elite treatment can return to their daily routine after their appointment. Patients typically notice their CoolSculpting® Elite results within one to three months. The destroyed fat does not return, but subsequent weight gain will prevent you from appreciating your full results. We find that patients who maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine after the procedure continue appreciating results. Depending on the desired extent of correction, more than one session is usually recommended to achieve optimal results.
What is the difference between CoolSculpting® and CoolSculpting® Elite?

CoolSculpting® Elite also has seven applicators to choose from for effective fat reduction.
Is CoolSculpting® Elite treatment painful?
Most CoolSculpting® Elite patients report having a comfortable and painless treatment. Some experience minor aching or tenderness, but these tend to subside over the following days to weeks.
Does CoolSculpting® Elite result in scarring?
No incisions are made during a CoolSculpting® Elite session, so there is no risk of scarring. The tissues surrounding the targeted fat cells remain unharmed throughout the procedure, resulting in completely scarless contouring effects.
What are the potential side effects associated with CoolSculpting® Elite treatment?
Significant complications after CoolSculpting® Elite are uncommon. Typical side effects associated with this treatment are mild and may include:
- Changes in sensation
