CoolSculpting Elite Advantages
- CoolSculpting Elite is a great, FDA-approved non invasive method for contouring and sculpting the body, removing stubborn fat from common “problem areas.”
- An incredible non invasive treatment for those who want a treatment with absolutely no downtime, no scarring, and no anesthesia!
- We are proud to offer CoolSculpting Elite to patients to minimize the appointment time with maximum efficiency to freeze your flanks, abdomen, banana rolls, arms, and more!
CoolSculpting Elite is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive fat reduction treatment. The device utilizes controlled cooling technology to freeze unwanted fat cells that are resistant to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting Elite can reduce fat in the treatment site by up to 25% and can be used on the abdomen, flanks, thighs, double chin, upper arms, bra roll, and more.
What To Expect From Your CoolSculpting Elite Experience
The CoolSculpting Elite procedure is non-invasive and does not require anesthesia. Once the target areas have been identified and marked, a thin gel pad will be placed to protect your skin. The applicator will then be placed on the treatment site. The CoolSculpting Elite device applies gentle suction to draw the fat bulge between the applicator panels. The device then cools the fat roll to a specific temperature that freezes and kills fat cells while leaving surrounding cells unharmed. The dead cells will then be eliminated by the body over the next several weeks. You will see your best outcome 1-3 months after treatment.
How Does CoolSculpting® Elite Work?
Despite diet and exercise, fat cells accumulate in the body and can be very tough to get rid of.
CoolSculpting® Elite technology uses controlled cooling (Cryolipolysis) to target, freeze, and kill only these fat cells.
In the following weeks, these fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body. Treated fat cells are gone for good and results are long-term!
While some patients may see initial results after about two weeks, the most noticeable body contouring changes will appear over the course of four to six weeks as the frozen fat cells are eliminated by the body. The results of CoolSculpting Elite are long-lasting and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help prolong the outcome of your treatment. To boost fat reduction results, consider some of our other complementary procedures, such as BodyTite fat removal and skin tightening. Read our blog on the 7 benefits of CoolSculpting to learn more.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive technology that achieves fat reduction and body contouring. Patients can expect up to a 20-25 percentage tissue reduction per treatment in the treated areas. While not a weight loss procedure, CoolSculpting works synergistically with diet and exercise to achieve optimal results.
Is there any downtime?
No, the benefit of CoolSculpting is the opportunity to receive treatments that have minimal to no impact on your day-to-day activities. Many of our patients find themselves back in the gym the same day or day after.
What areas can be treated?
The FDA-cleared areas that are most commonly treated include the abdomen, flanks, bra roll, arms, outer thighs, inner thighs, banana roll, submental, and distal knee.
How long does it take?
While it depends on the specific areas of interest, treatments can take anywhere between 45 minutes to 1 hour per cycle. It is common for patients to require multiple cycles per visit.
Am I a good Candidate?
Ideal candidates for CoolSculpting have areas of unwanted fat that have been resistant to diet and exercise. Your candidacy for the procedure will be determined during your consultation appointment.
Can I use CoolSculpting\u00ae to lose weight?
No, CoolSculpting is not designed for weight loss. Patients are typically close to their ideal body weight and follow a healthy lifestyle, but they often struggle to eliminate fat in a few stubborn areas.
Are these treatments painful?
Most patients experience minor discomfort during the first five minutes of their CoolSculpting treatment. This sensation will fade as the controlled cooling starts to work.
How is CoolSculpting performed?
CoolSculpting utilizes both a suction and cooling technology to reduce stubborn pockets of fat. It is noninvasive, meaning there are no incisions and/or scars associated with treatment. There is no down-time or recovery, and many of our patients exercise or return to work the same day as treatment!
Will the fat come back?
CoolSculpting is considered to be permanent fat reduction as long as a patient maintains their baseline weight. We recommend continuing your normal diet and exercise routines, as these work synergistically with CoolSculpting for best outcomes. However, weight gain can impede your ability to see your CoolSculpting results.
How long does it take to see results?
Many of our patients have shared that they begin noticing improvement about 4-6 weeks after initial treatment. However, optimal results are seen between 2-4 months after your last treatment.
Are there any side effects?
Common side effects include redness, bruising, localized swelling, numbness or diminished sensation of treated area, and soreness/discomfort. These side effects are temporary and improve over time. It may take a few weeks for full sensation to return to the affected area.
What should I do before and after CoolSculpting?
Before your CoolSculpting treatment, we recommend wearing comfortable clothing and eating a snack or light meal. We want you to be comfortable throughout your treatment. For best results, we recommend maintaining your normal diet and exercise routines after treatment.
How much does it cost?
Pricing will vary based on the area(s) to be treated and the amount of excess tissue. The amount of tissue a patient has will determine how many treatments and sessions are needed for maximum improvement.
Should I massage my stomach after CoolSculpting?
At the end of your CoolSculpting treatment, our providers will perform a 2-minute manual massage to the treated area. By doing so, this helps to further break up the fat cells. This has been proven to subsequently increase your results by 68%. However, there is no need to perform additional massage at home.
What should I eat after CoolSculpting?
You can eat whatever you would like after your CoolSculpting treatment. There are no restrictions, so you may eat whatever foods you typically enjoy. However, it is important to note that we recommend maintaining your normal diet and exercise routine during your CoolSculpting journey.
Can I drink coffee before CoolSculpting?
Yes, you may drink coffee, in moderation, prior to your CoolSculpting treatment.
Should I wear compression garments after CoolSculpting?
There is no associated recovery or downtime with CoolSculpting, so there is no need to wear a compression garment after your treatment as it will not impact your results.
How long will my stomach be swollen after CoolSculpting?
Most of our patients (and even staff!) have noticed post-treatment swelling typically resolves within 24-72 hours after treatment. In some patients and certain treatment areas, it may take a full 1-2 weeks to fully resolve.
Why does my stomach look bigger after CoolSculpting? (popular question to address the appearance of being swollen right after)?
Your abdomen can often look larger after your CoolSculpting treatment. This is because your body experiences an increase in blood flow due to the suction and cooling technology, resulting in localized swelling of the treated area. This is a common and normal side effect. Swelling is also part of our body’s inflammatory response to removing dead fat cells.
Should I ice after CoolSculpting?
We would not recommend using cool compresses directly on the treated areas after CoolSculpting. Patients often experience diminished sensation or numbness in the treated areas, and utilizing cool compresses or heating pads can increase the risk of thermal burns. If patients are sore or uncomfortable, we recommend taking OTC pain relivers, like Tylenol, to help with aches or soreness.
How do I prepare for CoolSculpting?
Before your CoolSculpting treatment, we recommend wearing comfortable clothing and eating a snack or light meal. We want you to be comfortable throughout your treatment.
How do I maximize CoolSculpting results?
For best results, we recommend maintaining your normal diet and exercise routines after treatment. We also recommend protecting the skin of the treated area(s) with SPF if you are going to be in the sun.
How many pounds can CoolSculpting remove?
CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss procedure. You will not see a decrease in the number on the scale; rather, CoolSculpting is a fat reduction technology that helps to contour trouble spots that struggle to respond to diet/exercise.
