What Do I Need to Know About My CoolSculpting® Elite Treatment?
Men and women of various ages struggle with unwanted fat in different areas of their bodies, whether from age, lifestyle, or life events (like pregnancy). And while so many people tend to think that fat can only be removed from the body in two ways (natural diet and exercise or plastic surgery, like liposuction), the reality is that there is an effective and efficient way to get rid of fat without any pain or downtime. CoolSculping® Elite is a trusted cosmetic treatment that helps you reduce fat in the body to achieve the body contours you want so that you can feel better about the way you look.
How Does CoolSculpting® Elite Work?
CoolSculpting® was first introduced to cosmetic practices in 2010 as being one of the first and most effective non-surgical fat removal procedures available to men and women. This revolutionary treatment was only improved with the development of CoolSculpting® Elite in 2021. The major difference between the original treatment and CoolSculpting® Elite is that the Elite system is able to remove more fat in a single treatment session because the Elite applicator covers up to 18 percent more skin surface. It can also be used on two treatment areas at one time.
CoolSculpting® Elite works by cryolipolysis, which is a cosmetic technique that freezes the fat and then kills the fat cells in the body. Over the next several weeks, these destroyed fat cells are naturally flushed from the body.
How Is a CoolSculpting® Elite Treatment Performed?
A CoolSculpting® Elite treatment session generally takes 30 to 60 minutes to perform, though this time varies depending on the extent of correction (and number of treatment sites). This treatment is pain-free and does not require any anesthesia.
For your treatment, your fat reduction specialist will apply a gel pad and CoolSculpting® Elite to the target area. Over your session, the applicator will use suction and cooling technology to freeze the fat without harming any of the surrounding skin, muscle, or tissue. Once the session is over, then you are free to get back to your daily life. It is important to note that multiple sessions per area may be required to achieve optimal results.
After Your Treatment: What Do You Need to Know?
Because of the nature of this treatment, you can expect to see your CoolSculpting® Elite results one month after your session.
Besides helping you to improve your physical appearance and your sense of self-confidence and comfort, one of the benefits of CoolSculping® Elite is that there is no required recovery or downtime. While you may have some redness to the skin in the treatment area as well as some itching in the area, you will be able to return to your normal activities immediately following your treatment. Some patients have reported some tenderness and discomfort after their CoolSculpting® Elite treatment, though this only lasts a short period of time and is not reported to be bothersome enough to interrupt patients’ normal life.
Your CoolSculpting® Elite results are long lasting, since the fat is removed from your body. This doesn’t mean, however, that you will not have additional fat develop in your body. It is important that you keep a healthy lifestyle, which means consistent exercise and a balanced diet. Additional CoolSculpting® Elite sessions can be scheduled in the future to remove any additional fat in your body.
