What is CoolSculpting Elite?
CoolSculpting Elite represents the latest in CoolSculpting technology. While the CoolSculpting treatment has been a longstanding success at our office, the introduction of CoolSculpting Elite signifies a significant advancement. This cutting-edge approach not only provides outstanding results but also prioritizes safety, comfort, and efficiency. The result is a faster, more comfortable treatment that delivers superior results, ensuring a top-tier experience at MediSpa Maui. The most common areas to treat are the abdomen, love handles, back and hips, but inner and outer thighs, “under chin” area, male chest, arms, and under butt can also be addressed, as advised after a consultation.
How does a CoolSculpting Elite treatment work?
CoolSculpting Elite delivers remarkable results through an active and efficient process featuring dual applicators, treating twice as many areas in just half the time compared to outdated systems. When the treatment applicators are used, they cool fat in the targeted area to a temperature that disrupts their cell membranes while keeping your skin, nerves, and muscles completely unharmed. Once these fat cells are disrupted, your body’s lymphatic system takes charge, filtering and eliminating the broken-down fat. Importantly, the treated fat cells cannot regenerate, ensuring long-lasting results. Despite this, it’s important to note that other fat cells in the area can still expand if weight gain occurs.
Good Candidates for CoolSculpting Elite?
CoolSculpting Elite treatment is excellent for patients who want to improve the contours of their bodies without the need for invasive surgical procedures. It is a safe and effective treatment that is ideally suited for those within their ideal weight range but suffers from stubborn fat that accumulates in areas that are hard to target with diet and exercise alone. During your initial consultation, our skilled team will perform an assessment of your body and discuss your medical history to determine if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting Elite.
What can I expect when receiving a CoolSculpting Elite treatment?
It is performed right in the office, requires no anesthesia, and is non-invasive. Your Certified CoolSculpting Technician will start by applying a gel pad to the area to be sculpted. After that is in place, they will then put the suction apparatus over the target site. The apparatus will suck the skin up between the two cold plates. The procedure will place two applicators in two different areas for simultaneous treatment, making it faster than a regular CoolSculpting treatment. Its C-shaped applicator makes the treatment much more comfortable for the patient.
There may be a cold sensation at first which generally disappears between five to ten minutes. Each treatment area takes an hour and it is common to treat anywhere from one to four areas in a session. During treatment, patients choose to relax and read a book, watch a movie, talk on a cell phone or even take a nap. Once the treatment is complete, the device is removed and the treatment area is briefly massaged. Patients can leave the office and go on with whatever activities they have planned with no restrictions.
What are the side effects of CoolSculpting Elite?
Since there are no incisions necessary and no anesthesia used, the risks are minimal. The worst side effects reported are cramping or redness at the site, which also usually resolve on their own.
What improvement will I see?
As with any body-sculpting procedure, the results will vary depending on each person’s individual body type. For the majority of people, there will be a significant reduction of fat in the area where CoolSculpting Elite was performed, at typically about a 20% fat reduction per treatment. The results will be noticeable within two months, with full results occurring at about four months.
How many treatments will I need?
How many treatments are desired is individual and based on the amount of fat in the treatment area. During your consultation, the area and your desired result will be assessed to determine your treatment plan. An area can be treated once or multiple times and can be re-treated as early as six to eight weeks or later.
Patients who choose to undergo the procedure can experience a significant fat reduction in the treatment area, as shown in CoolSculpting Elite before and after photos below.
