  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Man Boobs
  • Bra Fat

What is CoolSculpting Elite?

CoolSculpting Elite is the newest version of cryolipolysis technology. Often referred to as “the new generation of cool,” CoolSculpting Elite offers an enhanced body contouring experience. Thanks to a range of new applicators CoolSculpting Elite patients can receive faster, better, and more consistent treatments. In fact, the Elite Curve 240 applicator treats up to an 18 percent larger treatment area when compared to the Cool Advantage Plus applicator. We have the new CoolSculpting Elite in Petoskey, Traverse City, and Naples. 

CoolSculpting and CoolSculpting Elite are the only FDA-cleared treatments to eliminate visible fat bulges in the following areas: 

  • thighs (inner and outer)
  • abdomen 
  • flanks (love handles)
  • bra and back fat
  • below the buttock (“banana roll”)
  • upper arm* 
  • chin*

*CoolSculpting Elite can be used to treat the upper arm area in patients with a BMI of ≤ 30 and in submental and submandibular areas in patients with a BMI of ≤ 46.2.

How does CoolSculpting Elite work?

CoolSculpting Elite is an advanced version of CoolSculpting. The concept is still the same: using a technique called cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting Elite destroys fat cells via a “cold applicator.” CoolSculpting Elite features a new C-shaped dual applicator for enhanced comfort and fit. During the treatment, our Coolsculpting master provider applies the applicator on your skin to freeze and destroy fat cells within the treatment area. After treatment, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from your body. 

Most CoolSculpting sessions can be completed in 35 minutes or less. What’s more, patients can return to work immediately after treatment – no downtime required!   

We’ve treated thousands of patients with CoolSculpting. Patients notice their stubborn bulges shrinking within just a few weeks. The best results from CoolSculpting are in a couple of months and more treatments results in more fat reduction!

Traditional CoolSculpting vs CoolSculpting Elite

Traditional CoolSculpting uses one applicator to target one treatment area at a time. With CoolSculpting Elite, patients can treat two areas at once. 

CoolSculpting Elite features re-engineered applicators and larger cooling panels for faster, more enhanced fat reduction. CoolSculpting Elite applicators are designed to better conform to a patient’s natural curves – making the procedure more comfortable than a traditional CoolSculpting procedure.
