What's the Difference Between Coolsculpting® and Coolsculpting® Elite?

When you look in the mirror, do you see some fat bulges that keep you from wearing the clothes you want? Coolsculpting® targets these stubborn areas to remove that fat without surgery or downtime. Dr. Dohner and the team at New York Skin & Vein Center offer Coolsculpting® Elite, the most advanced system for making this treatment more convenient and effective than older methods. 

What is Coolsculpting®?

While almost all of us have a few areas of resistant fat, many of us do not have time for or interest in invasive procedures. Coolsculpting® works through a process called lipolysis, which means it lowers the temperature of the area till fat cells freeze which damages them. Your skin and other tissues remain unaffected at this temperature, making the treatment

What’s the Difference Between Coolsculpting® and Coolsculpting® Elite?

While Coolsculpting® and Coolsculpting® Elite work in the same basic way, Elite has been redesigned with several major improvements

Faster Results With Fewer Treatments

In the past, each system could only treat one area at a time. However, Coolsculpting® Elite has two applicators, allowing it to treat two areas simultaneously. As a result, you can see your desired results in half the time and achieve your goals more quickly. Fewer visits also mean less disruption to your busy day. 

Better Applicators

The redesigned Coolsculpting® Elite applicators have a “C” shape that fits against your skin more comfortably, allowing maximum treatment results and reducing the soreness you might have experienced after treatment with older applicator styles. 

More Fat Removal

Coolsculpting® Elite, like the systems before it, can remove up to 25% of fat from targeted areas. However, Coolsculpting® Elite has larger applicators, treating more surface area, so you see even better results.

Am I a Good Candidate for Coolsculpting®?

Coolsculpting® works best for healthy adults who are close to their goal weight but struggle with a few areas of stubborn fat. It is not a weight loss treatment. Good candidates have reasonable expectations and want to reduce fat without surgery. People with certain medical conditions that make them more sensitive to cold should not have Coolsculpting®. 

What Results Will I See With Coolsculpting® Elite?

Your Coolsculpting® Elite results develop slowly as your lymphatic system removes the damaged fat cells. Full results take up to three months to develop. Once your results have developed, they can last a lifetime. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is the best way to keep the treated areas looking sculpted. Your results may change if you experience a significant weight change.
