Does CoolSculpting® Elite Work?

Getting rid of excess body fat is a dream for lots of people. You’ve followed a healthy diet, you exercise regularly, but some areas of your body seem to retain stubborn fat deposits. As a result, you seek out different fat reduction treatments to help you achieve your goals. Many of these treatments exist, with some requiring surgery. At Physician Skin, we offer a non-surgical option in the form of CoolSculpting® Elite.

What is CoolSculpting® Elite?

CoolSculpting® Elite is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that’s approved by the FDA. As the name somewhat alludes to, it uses cooling technology to help sculpt a better body. The main concept of this procedure is that it breaks down and reduces fat in your body. It does this without any surgery being required, and no downtime needed afterward. Research suggests that patients see a 20% reduction in fat within the treated area after just one appointment. 

How CoolSculpting® Elite Works

An interesting fact about CoolSculpting® Elite is that it was specially formulated by a team of Harvard scientists. They were looking into the idea of using cold energy to target fat cells beneath the dermal tissue in your body. That’s essentially how CoolSculpting® Elite works: freezing energy hits the fat cells, making them crystallize and freeze. From here, the fat will basically leak out and be disposed of via the lymphatic system, leaving your body. 

As a result, you will see a significant reduction in fat from the treatment area almost right away. The more appointments you have, the more effective CoolSculpting® Elite becomes, helping you further remove stubborn body fat. One session should usually only last an hour, during which the CoolSculpting® Elite device will be placed over a specified area to deliver the freezing energy to the fat cells. It’s non-invasive, and the only side effect is that you feel a slight tingling/burning sensation, to begin with, but the cold energy quickly numbs this.

The benefit of CoolSculpting® Elite is that it delivers mightily impressive results for patients.

It also happens to be one of the few non-surgical fat reduction methods to genuinely work. This means you’re left without any scars or a long recovery period post-treatment. 

CoolSculpting® Elite is safe and FDA-certified, which are both beneficial. It leaves patients safe in the knowledge that there are minimal risks involved with the procedure. Lastly, the results you see can last a lifetime – when fat has been destroyed, the cells won’t grow back. All you have to do is follow a healthy diet and stay active to prevent new fat from forming!

Am I a Candidate for CoolSculpting® Elite?

Physician Skin encourages CoolSculpting® Elite for healthy candidates with stubborn pockets of fat that won’t go away through normal diet and exercise. Candidates should follow an active lifestyle, eating healthily and exercising regularly. If all your efforts still don’t get rid of stubborn fat, CoolSculpting® Elite can nudge you towards your final goals. It is not recommended for overweight patients that want to lose weight – all candidates should be within 14-20 pounds of their goal weight.
