Ever since the FDA approved CoolSculping over a decade ago, the body contouring procedure has taken the world by storm. This “fat freezing” technology has continued to evolve and give people new ways to slim and tone their bodies. The device’s evolution took a new turn recently with the introduction of CoolSculpting® Elite. Our Fort Myers patients have been especially excited to try out this next-generation breakthrough.
When it comes to removing unwanted fat, few nonsurgical treatments can compete with the power of CoolSculpting Elite. Learn more about this unique noninvasive procedure that is more comfortable, effective, and efficient than ever.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical body contouring procedure that shrinks the size of “pinchable” areas of fat. Unlike other treatments that use heat to “melt” fat cells, CoolSculpting freezes fat using a process known as cryolipolysis. During the procedure, a hand-held applicator suctions fatty tissue into the device and carefully exposes the tissue to controlled cool temperatures. The cold air breaks down fat cells, which are then naturally shed by the body over time, reducing the size of unwanted fat deposits.
What Makes CoolSculpting Elite Different?
CoolSculpting Elite uses a fleet of redesigned applicators to take your procedure to the next level. The new collection comes in 7 different shapes and sizes, expanding your treatment cooling area by 18% and eliminating more fat. Each new applicator hugs the body closely and conforms to your natural curves. This gives the applicator a snugger fit than the previous generation of CoolSculpting applicators, allowing you to target all your problem areas with ease.
Customizing Your Procedure
No two patients are exactly alike, so our approach to treatment is highly flexible. Each new CoolSculpting Elite applicator (pictured above) has a new design that makes treatment more efficient and comfortable for specific areas.
- Curve Series: These C-shaped applicators are made to fit curved areas such as under the chin, below the jawline, across the tummy, along your sides, and under the buttocks. The cupped shape better fits the body’s natural curves and uses suction to draw in and hold fat during treatment. This improved design treats a larger surface area in one go, allowing for improved results and reduced treatment times.
- Flat Series: This series has 2 applicators designed to treat pinchable fat on flatter parts of the body. The devices have a longer, rectangular shape and are typically used on the upper arms and inner thighs.
- Surface: This larger applicator is the only one of the entire CoolSculpting Elite lineup that doesn’t use suction. It’s flat design treats areas of fat that are difficult to pinch, such as the outer thighs and upper abdomen.
Our practice also offers special CoolSculpting package deals for those who want to target multiple areas at once. Our Transformation Package targets the tummy and thighs in 2 applications, while our Premium Transformation Package targets the upper and lower abdomen in 3 applications. Our providers will discuss your treatment options with you and recommend the best approach for your unique needs.
Who Is a Good CoolSculpting Candidate?
CoolSculpting is an excellent treatment choice for med spa veterans and new patients alike. You may be a good candidate if you:
- Want to slim your body contours
- Would like to avoid surgery
- Have small fat deposits that don’t respond to diet and exercise
While CoolSculpting can freeze away fat, it’s important to remember it is not a weight loss procedure. You should be within 10 to 15 pounds of your ideal weight before considering CoolSculpting treatments.
Can I Combine CoolSculpting Elite With Other Procedures?
CoolSculpting Elite can achieve fantastic results alone, and you can combine it with other procedures to further enhance your look. Patients who want to increase muscle tone and reduce fat can use CoolSculpting alongside EMSCULPT® NEO. EMSCULPT uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate rapid muscle contractions, similar to the way your muscles contract during traditional exercise. The device sculpts and enhances muscle definition along the abdomen, buttocks, arms, thighs, and more.
QWO® treatments can further address cellulite on the buttocks, while BodyTite procedures tighten loose excess skin. Dr. Hasen will explain your treatment options and help you find the ideal combination for achieving your goals.
