Your CoolSculpting Elite Treatment

CoolSculpting Elite is a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction that helps reduce those stubborn areas of fat that don't respond to diet or exercise. If you can pinch an inch of fat around your abdomen or thighs, you may be a good candidate. With our CoolMini™ applicator, we can use CoolSculpting to reduce fat under the chin.

How CoolSculpting Elite Works

CoolSculpting Elite works by delivering intense cold energy to targeted areas of your body where you have stubborn fat that is unaffected by diet and exercise, such as the midsection, flanks, and thighs. Fat cells are more vulnerable to cold than other kinds of tissue, so they are damaged by low temperatures, while other areas remain totally unharmed. The fat cells die off over the course of a few months, and the body naturally flushes them away, gradually slimming treated areas.

CoolSculpting Elite Procedure & Recovery

A CoolSculpting treatment takes about an hour. The treated area feels cold for about 5 minutes, and then it becomes numb.

During the treatment, you can sit back and read, relax, or even nap. At the end of the treatment cycle, we massage the site for 2 to 3 minutes. You are free to return to work or exercise that day, as no downtime is required.

Over the following few days to weeks, you may experience some achiness, numbness, or itchiness in the area that was treated. This is typically easily tolerated without the need for pain medication.

As the fat cells die and your body breaks them down, you will likely begin to notice a change in your body contour in that area. The areas with stubborn fat will smooth out, leaving you with a sleeker shape. This process typically takes approximately 2 to 3 months. Sometimes a repeat treatment is needed to reach your goals, and it is perfectly safe to retreat an area. Occasionally, if we know this will be required, we can treat the same area twice on the first treatment day.
