CoolSculpting® Elite Q & A


What is CoolSculpting® Elite?

CoolSculpting® Elite is today’s most advanced device for women and men who want to get rid of resistant pockets of fat without resorting to surgery. The technology works by freezing the targeted fat cells. The frozen cells break down, and your body clears them away. As a result, the fat disappears forever.

Treatment with CoolSculpting® Elite affects only fat cells because they’re more sensitive to cold temperatures. The innovative device lowers the temperature just enough to affect the fat without harming your skin or other tissues.

Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting® Elite?

As a body contouring treatment, CoolSculpting® Elite does an exceptional job of reducing specific areas of fat. However, it’s not a weight loss procedure. The best candidates are at or near their healthy body weight but still have areas of bulging fat.

What body areas does CoolSculpting® Elite treat?

CoolSculpting® Elite safely reduces fat from the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Upper arms
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Back fat
  • Bra fat
  • Thighs (inner and outer)
  • Under the buttocks
  • Under the chin (double chin)
  • Under the jawline

Dr. Sanders uses applicators designed to fit the contours of your targeted area.

What happens during a CoolSculpting® Elite session?

Our CoolSculpting® Elite Specialist applies a gel pad to the treatment area, then places the CoolSculpting® applicator over the pad. You may feel a slight sucking sensation followed by mild pulling, intense cold, tingling, stinging, or aching. These sensations quickly go away as the cooling treatment numbs the area.

You simply relax for about 35 minutes while the device freezes the fat. After the Specialist removes the applicator, they briefly massage the area to help break up the fat cells. Then you can return to your daily routine.

It’s common to experience slight swelling, redness, bruising, or tenderness after your session. These side effects are temporary but may last a week or two.

When will I see results?

It takes time to clear away all of the treated fat cells. While many patients see results begin in a matter of a couple of weeks, most of the contouring appears over the next two to three months.

During one session, CoolSculpting® Elite eliminates up to 20-25% of the treated fat. While that’s all some patients need to achieve their body-contouring goals, others may need more than one treatment.
