Why CoolSculpting Elite?
There are several options for non-invasive body contouring available, and each works differently. However, CoolSculpting Elite is the only treatment of its kind that uses proven cryolipolysis technology – backed by many years of research at Harvard University – to freeze away stubborn fat safely and effectively*.

With CoolSculpting, there is no downtime. People can have the procedure done in their lunch hour and go right back to work.
Fat is much more responsive to cold compared to other structures such as nerves, skin, and muscle. This is why CoolSculpting is so appealing to many patients. With other non-invasive technologies, the use of electromagnets, needles, or heat comes with a risk of causing injury to other body structures, as well as telltale signs of a recent treatment such as swelling, brushing, or both.
CoolSculpting Elite is meant to treat stubborn areas of fat. These pockets of fat are resistant to diet and exercise. Even individuals at their ideal weight have issues because much of this stubborn fat can be related to hormones, genetics, and pregnancy.
Now, with CoolSculpting Elite, these areas of exercise-resistant fat can be treated and removed*.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting Elite works by freezing areas of stubborn fat which will, in time, naturally be removed by the body itself.

How Does Fat Freezing with CoolSculpting Elite Work?
CoolSculpting Elite works using a process called cryolipolysis – during this process, cooling energy causes the underlying fat cells to crystalize without damaging the surface of the skin. Once these fat cells crystallize, they are gradually removed from the body through the metabolic system. The result is a reduction in inches in areas where fat tends to accumulate.
What is the Difference Between CoolSculpting and CoolSculpting Elite?
CoolSculpting is the “traditional” version of the same treatment. CoolSculpting Elite was created as a more effective, efficient treatment option that covers more area and removes more fat per treatment – up to 25% versus the legacy version’s 20%.
Are CoolSculpting Elite Results Permanent?
CoolSculpting Elite can produce permanent results. This is because the fat cells are removed from the body entirely versus reduced in size as with traditional weight loss.
Is CoolSculpting Elite Effective?
CoolSculpting Elite is extremely effective at reducing stubborn fat. In clinical studies, it has shown to reduce fat in the treatment area by as much as 20-25% with a single treatment. These results are even long-lasting when coupled with an active lifestyle.
Does CoolSculpting Elite Hurt?
CoolSculpting Elite can cause some mild discomfort, but the area quickly becomes numb from the cooling energy. Most patients are able to relax and read or watch their show while undergoing treatment.
Who is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting Elite?
CoolSculpting Elite works best on patients who are within 30 lbs of their ideal weight. Generally, this means you have pinchable inches of fat.
What Areas Can I Treat with CoolSculpting Elite?
CoolSculpting Elite can be used on a variety of areas, most commonly the thighs, stomach, flanks, buttocks, upper arms, chin, and bra fat area. CoolSculpting Elite comes with specially molded applicators to fit each unique area.
Is CoolSculpting Elite Safe?
CoolSculpting Elite is a very low-risk procedure and does not require any downtime or anesthetic. Dr. Ashruf and our team will determine whether CoolSculpting Elite is able to achieve your body goals during your cosmetic consultation.
Who is a candidate for Coolsculpting Elite?
CoolSculpting Elite works best on pinchable inches of fat – it should not be considered a way to remove large amounts of fat or as a weight loss treatment. To be considered a good candidate, you should be at or near your ideal weight.
How Long Do CoolSculpting Elite Sessions Last?
The length of your CoolSculpting Elite session can depend on how many areas you want to treat and how large they are. Typically, sessions take between 1-2 hours.
