Good Candidates for CoolSculpting

If you have problem areas of fat that no exercise or diet can shed, you may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting. Ideal candidates are in good overall health, close to their ideal weight, and non-smokers.

If you are diagnosed with cryoglobulinemia, cold urticaria, paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, or cold agglutinin disease, you are not suitable for this procedure. This treatment does not tighten skin and may not be appropriate for individuals with loose skin.

Side Effects

Your Treatment Plan

Your CoolSculpting Elite clinician will work with you on the best treatment plan tailored to your needs. It may take as little as one office visit to achieve your goals. With different applicators to choose from, your clinician can design a treatment plan that can give you your desired results.

For some people, a customized treatment plan may include more than one CoolSculpting Elite treatment. For example, you may want to freeze away fat from your inner and/or outer thighs—and also get rid of that muffin top. Some practices have multiple CoolSculpting Elite systems and can treat different body areas at the same time.

Your physician will provide a clinical recommendation of which areas should be treated and how many treatments you will need. The result? The sculpted shape you want.

Treatment Day

During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator will be applied to the targeted area. The CoolSculpting Elite applicator delivers controlled cooling to the targeted fat. During your procedure, feel free to read, check email, or even take a nap. The CoolSculpting Elite procedure is completely non-surgical, which makes returning to normal activities afterwards a typically easy process. Oftentimes, patients even return to work after their CoolSculpting Elite treatment is over.

Side Effects

During the procedure you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity. Sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental area treatment. These effects are temporary and generally resolve within days or weeks. Though rare, some additional side effects may occur. As with any medical procedure, ask your physician if the CoolSculpting Elite procedure is right for you.

Is it Painful?

As the name suggests, the CoolSculpting Elite procedure can be a little chilly. Controlled cooling is delivered via an applicator to freeze the targeted fat. Though you may feel intense cold initially, this feeling usually subsides within 5 to 10 minutes as the area numbs. Because most applicators use a vacuum to draw fatty tissue into the applicator cup, you may also feel some pulling, tugging, and/or mild pinching.

After you and your physician select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. A gel pad and applicator are applied to the targeted area. Vacuum applicators draw the tissue into the applicator cup. Applicators are secured to the treatment area. All applicators deliver controlled cooling to the targeted fat.

When Will I See Results?

You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after 2 months. Your body will still continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment. The Before & After gallery shows what results look like several weeks after CoolSculpting Elite treatment.

Do I Have To Go On a Diet After the Procedure?

No supplements are required after your CoolSculpting Elite treatment. It’s not a diet and exercise program, so you won’t need to change any of your lifestyle habits. Many patients do feel more motivated to take care of themselves after a CoolSculpting Elite treatment. It’s as if they got a second lease on their body! They want to take even better care of themselves.

The Science Behind CoolSculpting

It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting Elite technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you. You can reshape your body! We will develop a customized CoolSculpting Elite treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.

CoolSculpting During and After Treatment

It’s easy to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat. After we select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During your procedure, you may choose to read, check email, or even take a nap. The CoolSculpting Elite fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately. You will like what you see. In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
