What Can I Expect During and After CoolSculpting Elite?

What Can I Expect During and After CoolSculpting Elite?

You’ve worked hard to achieve your ideal body shape through diet and exercise, but your results are falling short thanks to bulges of stubborn fat that seem to mock your every effort. Now, you’re considering another approach — fat reduction — as you’ve been hearing a lot about the popular CoolSculpting® Elite system.

Dr. Manuel A. Lopez and the team at Advanced Aesthetics Lopez Plastic Surgery are pleased to offer the exciting CoolSculpting fat-busting technology at our Alamo Heights location. In this blog, we’ll explain the process.

A little bit about CoolSculpting Elite

Before we get into how the CoolSculpting Elite treatments work, let’s spend a moment reviewing why they’re so successful at body contouring. As you’ve probably already figured out, trying to target certain deposits of fat through diet and exercise is close to impossible because your body decides where it loses weight.

With CoolSculpting Elite, we’re able to apply energy directly into the fat cells responsible for your unwanted fat deposits, eliminating them for good. The process is called cryolipolysis — freezing your fat cells.

Our CoolSculpting system is cleared by the FDA to reduce unwanted fat cells in nine areas, including:

With CoolSculpting Elite, we can reduce 20-25% of fat cells in these areas.

The CoolSculpting Elite experience

The first thing to appreciate about our CoolSculpting Elite technology is that the treatments are completely non-invasive. 

When you arrive, we first review your target areas and create a treatment timeline. In most cases, a series of CoolSculpting Elite treatments, spaced apart by 3-5 weeks, deliver the best results.

Once we have our treatment plan, we get started. First, we make you comfortable, and then we apply the CoolSculpting device to your treatment area. You will feel some suction as the unit draws your skin into the device. As we release the cooling energy, you’ll feel the cold energy in your skin (many clients refer to the sensation as “intense cooling”).

Depending upon your treatment goals, most CoolSculpting Elite sessions take only 45-60 minutes, making it an ideal lunch hour treatment. As well, you can use this time to catch up on your emails or do some reading as you lie back and let the CoolSculpting do its work.

Once we’re finished, you’re free to get right back to your day as there is no downtime with CoolSculpting Elite.

Your CoolSculpting results

Your CoolSculpting Elite results will be gradual as you continue through the treatments. During this time, your body processes the destroyed fat cells and flushes them out, at which point your skin resettles itself over your slimmer profile.

In most cases, our clients realize optimal results about 6-12 weeks after their final CoolSculpting Elite treatment.
