By now, you’ve heard about CoolSculpting and the amazing results it provides. You may have even experienced those results yourself. Can it get any better? The answer is YES – with CoolSculpting Elite! If you haven’t heard about this new CoolSculpting technology, let us fill you in.

What is CoolSculpting Elite?

It is the newest CoolSculpting device to treat unwanted fat cells with non-invasive, cryogenic energy. This next-generation technology takes body contouring treatments to a whole new level, but what makes it better than CoolSculpting Legacy?

Applicator Design

The original U-shaped design has been replaced with a C-shaped applicator. The new applicator increases tissue contact and suction while providing more even cooling and shorter treatment times. This new design is a better fit for the body’s natural curves and has up to an 18% larger cooling area.

Dual Applicators

The CoolSculpting Elite has dual applicator capability, making it possible to treat two areas at one time. This significantly reduces treatment times and increases patient comfort. Decreasing treatment times by treating two areas at once also reduces the possibility of experiencing any potential side effects. In our office we have two CoolSculpting Elite machines so we can treat four areas at one time, dramatically reducing your time spent in the office. 

More Treatment Areas

The FDA has approved CoolScuplting Elite to treat nine different areas of the body. That’s more than any other non-surgical fat reduction treatment. Treatment areas include: 

  • Submental (under chin)
  • Male chest
  • Arms 
  • Abdomen 
  • Love handles aka flanks, 
  • Bra rolls (front and back), 
  • Banana rolls (under butt), 
  • Inner thighs 
  • Outer thighs

How It Works

We’ve answered the question: What is CoolScuplting Elite? However, you may still be wondering how it works. CoolSculpting Elite uses cryolipolysis, the same process used by the Legacy. Fat cells in the treated area are frozen, causing them to die. Over time they are naturally eliminated from the body, giving you a more sculptured physique. It is perfect for targeting those stubborn pockets of fat that no amount of dieting or exercise can eradicate.

Like Legacy, CoolSculpting Elite is not meant for weight loss. Consider it the finishing touch to everything else you do to stay in shape and remain healthy. It is for individuals who are close to or have achieved their ideal weight. If you’re less than 10 pounds away from your goal and feel like you’re stuck, Coolsclupting Elite can help you jumpstart the loss of those last few stubborn pounds.


As with Legacy, there is virtually no downtime with CoolSculpting Elite. You can immediately return to your normal activities. The potential side effects are also similar to those experience with Legacy, such as numbness, bruising, redness, or swelling in the treated area. These dissipate quickly, usually within a few days, and the likelihood of their appearance is reduced by Elite’s faster treatment times.

Lasting Results

The fat cells impacted by CoolSculpting Elite treatments are gone for good. However, it is important to keep in mind that a healthy diet and lifestyle are necessary to maintain your results. 

Is CoolSculpting Elite Right for You?

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.

Now you know the answer to “What is CoolSculpting Elite?” The next question you should be asking yourself is ”What are you waiting for?”. Schedule a consultation to find out if CoolSculpting Elite can help you get that sculpted physique you always wanted.
