The Advantages of CoolSculpting Elite

For years, CoolSculpting® has been a top nonsurgical option for patients looking to target stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise alone. Recently redesigned for even greater results, reduced treatment time, and the introduction of dual applicators which allows for treatment of two areas at once, CoolSculpting® Elite is taking the world by storm. Heartland Plastic and Hand Surgery are proud to be Southeast Missouri’s first and only CoolSculpting® Elite provider. During the past decade, there have been more than seven million CoolSculpting® treatments performed around the world, providing a reputation of safe and effective treatment, little to no downtime, and lasting results. Here’s what to know about CoolSculpting®Elite and how it can help you achieve your body goals.

The Procedure

CoolSculpting® Elite freezes and eliminates up to 25% of the fat cells in the treated area. A redesigned applicator provides an 18% increase in treatment surface area as opposed to earlier CoolSculpting® applicator designs. In addition, the introduction of Dual CoolSculpting® allows for treatment of two areas at once, saving valuable time. By targeting a specific area, the surrounding cells and tissues are left unharmed, and the treated, crystallized fat cells will be naturally eliminated over time by the body’s regular processes. The results look natural and last for years when combined with a regular diet and exercise.

Targeted Fat Reduction

CoolSculpting® Elite makes it possible to target specific areas of the body where fat is hard to reduce for many people. It can be used to reduce fat in the abdomen, back, thighs, upper arm, love handles, chin, neck, and more. In fact, the FDA has given CoolSculpting® Elite approval to eliminate fat from nine different areas of the body. Providing endless opportunities for fat reduction without the downtime of traditional surgical procedures. 

No Pain

CoolSculpting®Elite does not use any needles, incisions, or anesthesia. During the first 5-10 minutes of your CoolSculpting® Elite treatment session, you will experience a strong cooling sensation and some slight tingling as the area numbs. You’ll feel very little/no discomfort after this. Most patients don’t even feel the need to take any over-the-counter pain relief medication after the procedure is finished!

Quick Treatment Time

Most people can’t afford to take a significant amount of time out of their busy schedule for fat reduction treatments. CoolSculpting® Elite is an excellent choice for people who need a procedure without a large time commitment involved. Most CoolSculpting® treatments will last less than an hour and you can immediately return to your normal activities afterward. This means no downtime or recovery.

Long-Lasting Results

While results are not immediate as with surgical options, CoolSculpting® Elite produces long-lasting results that typically develop within 4-6 weeks following treatment. After the procedure, it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle which means exercising regularly and eating a healthy, balanced diet. By doing this, you can enjoy your CoolSculpting® Elite results for years to come.
