For some, pockets of stubborn fat are an enormous challenge to get rid of, no matter how much effort we put into diet and exercise. CoolSculpting Elite is one of the top non-surgical options doctors use to eliminate fat. It works by actually freezing the stubborn, unwanted fat off of your body, instead of using needles or incisions. Plus, it’s FDA cleared to treat nine areas on the body. CoolSculpting Elite builds on the effectiveness of original CoolSculpting, with a safer, more effective treatment and 2 redesigned applicators.
CoolSculpting Elite is FDA-cleared to remove unwanted fat in the following areas:
The length of treatment will depend on which and how many areas are being treated, but CoolSculpting Elite accomplishes the same effectiveness more quickly than traditional CoolSculpting.
Most patients have no problem leaving their CoolSculpting Elite appointment and resuming their normal activities.
Results from CoolSculpting Elite typically appear within 30 days, with dramatic results between 1 and 3 months after treatment.
The main benefit of CoolSculpting Elite is the fact that it takes the trusted, effective technology of CoolSculpting and improves upon it in every way. Treatment is faster, more comfortable, more effective, and safer.

CoolSculpting Elite is a patented revolutionary, non-invasive cooling technology created by Zeltiq. It has the capability of removing specific localized fat in body areas such as the waist or love handles, back and abdomen which are proven to be stubborn to respond to exercise and diet.
You’ll meet with a CoolSculpting clinician during a one-on-one consultation. This person could be a doctor or another medical professional who has specialized training in the CoolSculpting procedure. Your CoolSculpting clinician will take the time to discuss a holistic approach to your goals for reshaping your body.
Together, you’ll look at your whole body from different angles—and then focus on specific areas where you want to eliminate fat. It may take as little as one office visit to achieve your goals. With different applicators to choose from, your clinician can design a treatment plan that can give you your desired results.
Elite applicators are no longer U-shaped but C-shaped, and come in 7 different shapes and sizes. This new and improved design better fits the body’s natural curves. CoolSculpting Elite’s advanced applicators make treatments more comfortable and more efficient.
Thanks to improved contact between the applicator and the skin’s surface, cooling is faster and results are improved. CoolSculpt Elite removes 20-25% fat in a single treatment, versus its predecessor which removed 18-20% fat at each visit.
CoolSculpting Elite makes contact with the body in a more efficient manner, as Elite applicators cover up to 18% more skin surface than CoolSculpting Legacy. This means larger treatment areas can be targeted in less time (shorter treatment sessions). Not only that, but each device has the ability to use two applicators at the same time (commonly referred as Dual Sculpting). Each CoolSculpting Elite machine can address two different treatment areas at the same time. This shortens appointment times considerably, since multiple areas can be treated at once.
