CoolSculpting Elite Q & A

What is CoolSculpting Elite?

CoolSculpting Elite is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that eliminates stubborn pockets of fat. It doesn’t require any incisions, needles, or anesthesia and delivers lasting results.

However, it’s important to note that CoolSculpting Elite isn’t a solution for obesity or excess loose skin from weight loss. If you’re close to your ideal weight, it may be an excellent option to tone and sculpt your body.

What areas on my body can CoolSculpting Elite treat?

At Rénove Medical Spa, Dr. Naqvi uses the CoolSculpting Elite machine for various parts of the body, including:

  • Abdomen
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Love handles
  • Bra fat
  • Back 
  • Upper arms 
  • Chin

CoolSculpting Elite may also treat a banana roll (stubborn fat under your buttocks).

How does CoolSculpting Elite work?

Coolsculpting Elite is a type of aesthetic treatment that uses freezing cold temperatures to destroy fat cells. 

With the CoolSculpting® Elite machine, it can treat two areas at once, cover larger areas, and provide more fat reduction. Dr. Naqvi applies gel pads and handheld applicators to the targeted areas. The applicators will emit cooling energy, freezing your fat cells and preventing them from returning.

Dr. Naqvi can repeat the same steps on other parts of your body. After treatment, fat cells will be processed and removed by your body naturally, along with other wastes.

Is CoolSculpting Elite safe?

CoolSculpting Elite is a safe, FDA-cleared machine for body contouring and is typically well-tolerated by most patients. However, like with any cosmetic procedure, there may be some side effects. 

Common side effects of CoolSculpting Elite may include:

  • A sensation of intense cold
  • Stinging
  • Tingling
  • Aching
  • Cramping
  • Pulling

If you experience any kind of discomfort during your treatment, you can let Dr. Naqvi know. He can always adjust the settings on the CoolSculpting Elite machine as necessary.

What is recovery like after CoolSculpting Elite?

After CoolSculpting Elite, you may experience some mild soreness, swelling, and bruising. However, you can return to your work and other daily activities right away. Any side effects should subside within one week. If your symptoms worsen or persist, reach out to Rénove Medical Spa immediately.  

When will I experience results from CoolSculpting Elite?

It often takes several weeks for noticeable results of CoolSculpting Elite to appear. This is because it can take some time for your body to process the fat and flush it away with other body waste. To maintain your CoolSculpting Elite results, Dr. Naqvi recommends getting regular exercise and eating a nutritious, balanced diet.
