What is CoolSculpting Elite?

You may have already heard about CoolSculpting and other fat-freezing techniques, but lately you’re hearing more about: CoolSculpting Elite. And you’ve got questions.

Put simply, CoolSculpting Elite is a highly advanced treatment that’s safer and offers more dramatic results than the original CoolSculpting technology.

What is CoolSculpting?

If you’re unfamiliar with the original CoolSculpting, here’s a brief introduction…

CoolSculpting is one of the best fat-freezing treatments in the US. It’s clinically proven to reduce fat by up to 25%!

It freezes stubborn fat cells and eliminates them naturally via the body’s own excretion process. There are no needles or injections with this non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, so there’s no downtime and few side effects. This procedure helps with body contouring and reducing stubborn fat pockets that are resistant to a healthy diet and exercise.

How does CoolSculpting Elite work?

Coolsculpting works by reducing fat through cryolipolysis. It uses freezing cold temperatures to destroy and break down fat cells. Once these fat cells are destroyed, they won’t return. Our skin cells and tissue remain unharmed as the fat-freezing technology works to target fat cells.

Before your procedure, you will usually be offered a consultation. During your consultation, the clinician will discuss the area or areas you would like to be treated, how many applicants you will need, and answer any questions you may have.

During your procedure, the practitioner strategically holds the applicator over the area that is being targeted. These handheld applicators come in different shapes and sizes to target different visible fat bulges. This applicator cools down and destroys those fat cells during your 35-45 minute treatment session. So, all you need to do is sit back and relax while the applicator does all the hard work for you!

You might feel mild sensations of tugging, pulling, or pinching, but after 5 to 10 minutes, the area will feel numb. Afterward, your clinician will give you a short massage of the treated area to help your body metabolize the cells as quickly as possible.

There are many benefits of CoolSculpting Elite treatment compared to other fat reduction methods. Here are some of the main ones:

Coolsculpting Elite cost

If you’re considering trying CoolSculpting Elite, you likely want to know how much this revolutionary treatment will cost. 

The consultation is key to determining your treatment cost. Why? It largely depends on your areas of concern, and how many applicators are required to help you achieve your desired result. 

You might choose to target multiple areas to achieve your sculpted body. Another factor is how many sessions you undergo. Larger areas might need more treatments than smaller ones.

Am I a good candidate for Coolsculpting Elite?

This procedure is perfect for men and women within 10-15 pounds of their ideal weight. It’s a quick, non-invasive fat reduction method with no downtime. If you want to reduce fat but don’t want surgery, then CoolSculpting Elite might be for you! 

You are likely a good candidate if you have stubborn bulges of fat. It’s important to remember that CoolSculpting Elite is not a weight-loss technique. CoolSculpting Elite is designed only to reduce fat cells in its target areas. Sometimes it doesn’t matter how much you exercise and how healthy your diet is; these bulges just won’t budge. If you can pinch the fat and pull the tissue away from your body, CoolSculpting Elite might be for you. 

Remember, booking a consultation is the only way to know if CoolSculpting Elite will give you your desired results. Our clinics in Denver and Greenwood Village offer complimentary consultations that review pricing, answer your questions and concerns, and create a tailored treatment plan that works for you. 

Coolsculpting Elite downtime, risks, and side effects

One of the biggest benefits of CoolSculpting Elite is there is no downtime because there is no damage to the skin or tissue. So you can get back to your normal activities the same day!

There are very few risks or side effects associated with CoolSculpting Elite. Some people report soreness after the procedure, similar to the effects of an intense workout. Other minor side effects include stinging, firmness, mild discoloration, swelling, and itchiness.

Make sure you read the pre- and post-care instructions and discuss any concerns or questions you have with your clinician to help you feel more at ease before the procedure.  

How long does Coolsculpting Elite last?

After your procedure, you will generally see the best results after 2-3 months once your body has metabolized the broken-down fat cells. 

Provided you maintain a healthy lifestyle after your procedure, the results of CoolSculpting Elite are long-lasting. The procedure permanently destroys the stubborn fat cells. However, fat can still accumulate in the remaining cells. So, it’s essential you stick to your healthy diet and lifestyle so you can enjoy the results of CoolSculpting Elite forever!
