If you’ve ever looked into ways to get rid of stubborn fat, there is a high chance you’ve heard about CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting uses a process called cryolipolysis that was first approved for use in 2009. Since then, this fat loss treatment has been helping people see results in many areas of the body. While traditional CoolSculpting does work, technology is always improving. In 2021, CoolSculpting ELITE was introduced with even more benefits than before.

The CoolSculpting Cryolipolysis Phenomenon

Cryolipolysis was first discovered in 1970 by accident. Children who frequently sucked on popsicles began to develop dimples in their cheeks. The term “popsicle panniculitis” was coined, and the link between cold temperatures and fat loss was made.

In the 1990s, two Harvard scientists decided to look further into this phenomenon. They found that fat cells are more susceptible to cold damage than skin or other tissues. They also discovered that fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than water.

After years of research and numerous studies, these doctors finally perfected a device that could target and freeze fat cells without harming the surrounding skin or tissue. This device was cleared for use by the FDA in 2009, and CoolSculpting was born.


How Does CoolSculpting Work?

So, how does CoolSculpting work? It’s actually pretty simple. During the treatment, a gel pad and applicator are placed on the skin. The traditional CoolSculpting treatment involves using one device that attaches to the treated area.

This device then cools the fat cells to a temperature that destroys them. Extremely cold temperatures cause fat cells to freeze and die. The dead fat cells are then flushed out by the body’s natural waste removal process.

Over time more cells will be removed, resulting in a slimmer appearance. This process is called cryolipolysis.


New Technology: CoolSculpting ELITE

CoolSculpting ELITE is the latest and most advanced CoolSculpting technology on the market. It offers a number of improvements over traditional CoolSculpting, making it the perfect choice for those looking to get rid of stubborn fat.

Like traditional CoolSculpting, CoolSculpting ELITE is FDA-cleared and clinically proven to be safe and effective. It is FDA approved to treat 9 areas:

  • Inner, outer, and front of the thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks or love handles at the waist
  • Bra fat on the torso under the armpits
  • Back fat
  • Uderneath the buttocks, known as ‘banana rolls’
  • Upper arms
  • Submental area under the chin
  • Submandibular area under the jawline


Improvements Making ELITE, well, Elite

The basic technology using cryolipolysis is the same, but CoolSculpting ELITE has some improvements over the traditional fat removal technology.


Updated Applicators

Traditional CoolSculpting uses U-shaped applicators. With ELITE, C-shaped applicators are now used that fit the body’s natural contours more effectively. The improved applicator shape means that treatments are not only more efficient but more comfortable too. These new applicators can cover up to 18% more surface area than before.


Better Fat Removal

The applicator shape change has created better fat removal. More contact is made between the skin (and fat) and the applicator. This means more fat cells are targeted, and the cooling process happens quicker. CoolSculpting ELITE can remove up to 25% of fat during a treatment. Traditional treatments removed up to 20% only.


Multiple Applicators

With CoolSculpting ELITE, two applicators can be used at the same time. This can literally cut appointment time in half. Two applicators allow for shorter appointments and more areas being treated during a session. One applicator is used on each side of the body for symmetrical treatments.


Updated Machine

The CoolSculpting machine itself has also been updated. The new technology is quieter and can reach colder temperatures faster. By freezing the treatment area faster, discomfort is minimized. As the fat freezes, a pinching and pulling sensation is sometimes felt. By reaching freezing quicker, the time that this happens is minimized.


Benefits of CoolSculpting ELITE vs Traditional CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting ELITE offers a number of benefits over traditional CoolSculpting. While traditional CoolSculpting has helped many people lose unwanted fat, there are some limitations to the traditional treatment that are improved with ELITE.

  • First, the traditional CoolSculpting device can only treat one area at a time. This means that if you have fat in multiple areas, you will need to have multiple treatments. ELITE features 2 applicators.
  • An additional applicator also means shorter treatment times.
  • ELITE has improved applicators that can treat more surface area compared to traditional CoolSculpting. This will allow you to treat a larger area of fat.
  • CoolSculpting ELITE is more comfortable than traditional CoolSculpting. The device reaches freezing faster and this reduces pinching and pulling sensations that may happen as the fat freezes.


Why Choose CoolSculpting ELITE Over Liposuction

There are many reasons why someone might choose CoolSculpting ELITE over traditional treatments like Liposuction.

  • First of all, CoolSculpting is non-invasive, meaning there are no needles or surgery involved. This makes the treatment much less daunting and allows for a quicker recovery time. It also means that it is very safe and there are little to no side effects or scarring.
  • If you are near your goal weight you might not have enough fat for a liposuction procedure. CoolSculpting is a great alternative when you only need a little contouring to get your desired shape.
  • Your final results will be visible quicker with CoolSculpting. Recovery from liposuction can take months.
  • The cost might be less with CoolSculpting if you only need a few treatments. Liposuction will include anesthesia costs, and these can be expensive.


CoolSculpting ELITE is a great choice for those looking to remove fat in multiple areas of their body quickly and comfortably. With its updated applicators, machine, and design, CoolSculpting ELITE offers many benefits over traditional treatments.
