Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting Elite®?

Even if you lead a healthy lifestyle, you might have a few areas of stubborn fat. These difficult spots seem to hold onto fat no matter what you do. Eliminate those pockets of resistant fat with CoolSculpting Elite®. This non-invasive fat removal treatment slims and sculpts your problem areas. 

What is CoolSculpting Elite® for Body Contouring?

CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical body sculpting method that removes unwanted fat. Your New York Skin & Vein team uses CoolSculpting® Elite. This is the most advanced, effective system and provides you with the best results. This treatment works by freezing fat cells to slim and smooth your belly, love handles, thighs, arms, double chin, and more.

Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting Elite®?

Most healthy adults are good candidates. You will see your best results if you are close to your goal weight but have areas of resistant fat. However, others can still see benefits. This is not a weight loss treatment, and we recommend a healthy lifestyle in addition to body sculpting for maximum long-lasting results. 

You should not have CoolSculpting® Elite treatment on broken, irritated, or infected skin. You may not be a good candidate if you have a medical condition that makes your skin unusually sensitive to the cold. Only a consultation and review of your medical history can determine whether CoolSculpting® is safe for you. 

What to Expect During CoolSculpting Elite®

Your New York Skin & Vein provider will apply the advanced CoolSculpting® Elite applicators to your skin in the area you want to treat. Your skin may feel cold or tingling as treatment begins. The area quickly becomes numb, allowing you to relax and even take a nap. Your treatment will usually last 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the area.

Is There Any Downtime After CoolSculpting Elite®?

You can leave your CoolSculpting® Elite treatment and return to your usual activities without delay. This treatment requires no downtime, letting you fit it into your busy schedule. Your skin may look red and swollen for a few hours to a few days. You may also notice some temporary tingling or numbness. None of these effects should limit your activities. 

How Long Do CoolSculpting Elite® Results Last?

CoolSculpting® results develop gradually as your body’s lymphatic system removes damaged fat cells. You will usually see your full results within about three months. Most people only need one CoolSculpting® Elite treatment, but others need more to achieve their goals. Your CoolSculpting Elite® results can last a lifetime in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle. Your fat cells will not return, but the appearance of the area will change if your weight changes.
