Introducing CoolSculpting® Elite

Ever since the FDA approved CoolSculpting to reduce the fat that causes “love handles” more than a decade ago, the nonsurgical treatment has continued evolving. That evolution reached an exciting peak with the introduction of CoolSculpting Elite, and we’re the first Fort Worth practice to offer this advanced system. CoolSculpting Elite uses the same breakthrough technology but delivers it to more areas of the body with redesigned applicators.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

Unlike other treatments that use heat to melt fat cells, CoolSculpting pioneered the nonsurgical fat reduction field by “freezing” pockets of fat. The process, called cryolipolysis, uses carefully controlled cooling to break down fat cells. Fat cells are particularly vulnerable to the effects of cold and begin dying at temperatures that don’t damage the skin other tissue.

In the 10-plus years since CoolSculpting arrived, a number of other fat reduction procedures have been introduced. The desire to reduce unwanted fat without surgery was the top aesthetic concern among men and women, according to a 2019 poll conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.

What Makes CoolSculpting Elite Different?

CoolSculpting Elite’s redesigned applicators elevate the procedure to the next level. The new collection comes in 7 different shapes and sizes, including C-shaped applicators that expand the treatment cooling area by 18%, eliminating more fat. What makes the C-shape design so effective is it conforms to the body’s natural curves and fits more snugly compared to the previous generation of CoolSculpting applicators.

CoolSculpting Elite’s versatility also sets it apart from not only the previous generation of CoolSculpting but also other types of nonsurgical fat reduction procedures. Elite is cleared by the FDA to treat 9 separate areas of the body. These include:

  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks (“love handles”)
  • Upper arms
  • Underneath the buttocks (“banana rolls”)
  • Below the chin (double chin)
  • Below the jaw

Along with its versatility, CoolSculpting Elite uses 2 applicators at the same time, cutting treatment times in half. We can treat twice the fat in half the time compared to using a single applicator. For example, instead of a treatment session taking more than an hour, we can treat both the right and left flanks in 35 minutes.

Freeze Fat, Build Muscle

Patients who want to increase muscle tone and reduce fat can combine CoolSculpting Elite with CoolTone™, which triggers involuntary muscle contractions in the abdomen and buttocks using electromagnetic energy.
