How Does CoolSculpting® Elite Work to Reduce Stubborn Fat?

Almost all of us have a few spots where our bodies store fat and refuse to let go of it. These areas of stubborn fat resist all efforts to shrink them, even if you lead a healthy lifestyle. CoolSculpting® Elite reduces targeted fat to improve your contours and shape your figure. CoolSculpting® Elite removes this fat with no incisions, injections, or recovery time. 

What is CoolSculpting® Elite for Fat Reduction?

CoolSculpting® Elite is a non-invasive treatment that eliminates targeted fat. It uses a technology called cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells for removal from the body. CoolSculpting® Elite can target the most popular areas for fat removal, including the abdomen, thighs, and under the chin. CoolSculpting® Elite is the advanced and improved version of the original CoolSculpting® system.

How Does CoolSculpting® Elite Work to Reduce Stubborn Fat?

A CoolSculpting® Elite session begins with your Chill at Willow expert placing the applicators on your skin in the targeted areas. These applicators will lower the temperature until fat cells freeze and break down. Your skin will numb, but skin cells remain unharmed at this temperature. 

After freezing, your damaged fat cells signal your lymphatic system to remove them. This system filters away the fat cells for removal from the body, a process that typically takes about three months. Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting® Elite provides fat reduction with no incisions or scarring. 

What Makes CoolSculpting® Elite Better than CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® Elite offers several advantages over the original CoolSculpting®. These include:

  • Redesigned applicators for more comfort and fat reduction
  • Each applicator covers 18% more area
  • Can treat two areas simultaneously
  • Even safer and more effective

CoolSculpting® Elite applicators make better contact with the skin for more intensive treatment and better results. Chill at Willow offers CoolSculpting® Elite to maximize fat reduction and sculpt your figure. 

Is There Any Downtime After CoolSculpting® Elite?

You may notice that your skin looks red and feels sensitive or numb for a few hours to days after treatment. CoolSculpting® Elite requires no downtime so that you can return to work or other activities. You will be instructed to massage the area after treatment to help break up the fat for easier removal. 

How Long Do CoolSculpting® Elite Results Last?

You may start to see your CoolSculpting® Elite results within about three weeks, but full results take about three months to develop. Once these fat cells have been removed, they will not grow back. The target area will stay slim and sculpted as long as you maintain a consistent weight. 

Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting® Elite?

Almost anyone with stubborn fat may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting® Elite. This safe, non-invasive treatment is most effective for people at or near their target weight, but people with more body fat can still see results.
