What Areas Can Be Treated with CoolSculpting Elite®?

Stubborn areas of fat to improve are all over your body, from thighs to upper arms and even under the chin. CoolSculpting Elite® treats all the most common areas of stubborn fat for a more sculpted figure. This non-invasive treatment provides visible, long-lasting results that will improve your confidence. 

What is CoolSculpting Elite®? 

CoolSculpting Elite® is a non-invasive body sculpting treatment that uses cold temperatures to kill fat cells. At New York Skin & Vein we use CoolSculpting® Elite, an advanced CoolSculpting® system. This FDA-cleared treatment freezes fat cells dead to break them apart, allowing your lymphatic system to remove them. It causes minimal discomfort and no injury to the skin, making it a safe and effective way to achieve a more sculpted shape. 

What Areas Can Be Treated With CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting Elite® is used to target stubborn fat in several areas. Many people choose to have more than one area treated, such as the abdomen and flanks or thighs. We recommend CoolSculpting Elite® for fat in these problem spots:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Back fat
  • Bra fat
  • Upper arms
  • Inner and outer thighs and hips
  • Under the buttocks
  • Under the chin

CoolSculpting® Elite has more different applicators than standard CoolSculpting®, allowing us to target different areas with more precision. It also treats twice as many areas at once, giving you faster results. 

How Does CoolSculpting Elite® Work For Body Sculpting?

Your CoolSculpting Elite® treatment will usually take an hour or less. CoolSculpting® works by lowering the temperature of the treated area until fat cells begin to crystallize. Skin cells and other tissues remain unaffected by this temperature. Freezing damages the fat cells, which will be filtered out of the body by the lymphatic system. 

When treatment begins, you may feel cold, tingling, or other sensations, but the area usually goes numb within minutes. You can relax during treatment and read, check emails, or even close your eyes. The length of your treatment depends on the size of the targeted area

How Long Does it Take to See CoolSculpting Elite® Results?

CoolSculpting Elite® results usually start to appear a few weeks after treatment. Your full results will take up to three months to develop. Many people see their desired results after one body sculpting treatment, but others may benefit from two or three sessions to reach their goals. Each CoolSculpting Elite® treatment can remove 25% of fat from each treated area

Is There Any Downtime With CoolSculpting Elite®? 

This non-invasive treatment removes fat without causing injury to any other tissues. As a result, there is no downtime with CoolSculpting Elite®. You may experience some minor redness and sensitivity in the treated area that fades within a day or two. Some people experience numbness or tingling in the area for up to a few weeks. These effects are harmless and will disappear without treatment.
