CoolSculpting vs CoolSculpting Elite – Experience the Difference

 In Aesthetics, Blog, Body Contouring

Yes, it’s true! CoolSculpting has a new and improved version – CoolSculpting Elite. Those who have experienced CoolSculpting Legacy may find it hard to believe it can get any better – but it has. That’s not to say that the results you’ve experienced aren’t fantastic –  because they are. When comparing CoolSculpting vs CoolSculpting Elite, the difference lies in the treatment areas and treatment times. In other words, with CoolSculpting Elite you can get the same stellar results in more places in less time. Before we explain, let’s review the process that provides those results.


First cleared by the FDA in 2010 to freeze and destroy unwanted fat cells, CoolSculpting and CoolSculpting Elite both use Cryolipolysis. This is a noninvasive procedure that doesn’t involve any surgery or needles. Cryolipolysis freezes fat cells in the treated areas, causing them to die. The dead fat cells are naturally eliminated by the body, leaving the treated area toned and tighter. 

So, if both CoolSculpting and CoolSculpting Elite use the same process, what makes Elite better?

CoolSculpting vs CoolSculpting Elite

Over the last decade, CoolSculpting Legacy continued to innovate, adding different applicators such as the CoolADVANTAGE, which had three interchangeable contours – CoolCore Advantage for the abdomen, CoolCurve+ Advantage for the flanks, and CoolFit Advantage for the inner thighs. There was also the CoolMini designed to offer a non-surgical alternative for reducing or even eliminating your double chin.  Each advance allowed for CoolSculpting to reduce fat cells in more areas of the body. 

CoolSculpting Elite is FDA cleared for 9 areas of the body which is more than any other non-surgical fat reduction treatment. It is cleared to eliminate stubborn fat under the jawline, under the chin, the upper arms, back fat, bra fat, the flank area (love handles), abdomen, thighs, and under the buttocks (banana roll).

The Elite Difference

  • FDA-cleared to treat 9 areas of the body
  • For most patients, two or more treatment sessions are recommended
  • The average treatment plan costs $3,200
  • CoolSculpting Elite applicators feature up to an 18% larger cooling area than the previous generation of CoolSculpting applicators, allowing you to treat more stubborn fat in the same amount of time.

CoolSculpting Elite has dual applicators and those applicators have been redesigned. The original applicators were U-shaped which didn’t fit the body’s curves as well as Elite’s new C-shaped applicators. The new design increases tissue contact and suction which results in more even cooling and shorter treatment times. The decreased treatment times reduce the potential for possible side effects and eliminate the need for multiple visits to get more than one area treated at the same time. 

Without ever breaking or damaging the skin in the treated area, the new CoolSculpting Elite applicator targets the fat layer by cooling it. The treated fat cells are destroyed and naturally eliminated by the body, and you will begin to see results in as little as two to three weeks thanks to the new CoolSculpting Elite system with maximum results achieved around 12 weeks after your treatment. CoolSculpting Elite results in noticeable and natural-looking fat reduction – up to 25% or more – in the treated areas.

The CoolSculpting You Love –  Now It’s Even Better

CoolSculpting Elite can treat both men and women. The number of treatments will vary depending on the individual, the treatment areas, and the desired results. Factors taken into consideration include skin type, skin laxity, scars, or tattoos present in the treatment areas, as well as the pinchable amount of fat or the presence of a hernia.

Vive Wellness and Aesthetics is proud to offer CoolSculpting Elite as part of their complete suite of aesthetic treatments. We even have two Elite devices in our office, allowing us to treat four areas of the body at one time.
