Last year, Allergan surprised the aesthetic world by revealing its new, updated version of the CoolSculpting Legacy technology. CoolSculpting Elite is the latest, cutting-edge fat-freezing device that melts stubborn bulges while you rest, read, or watch TV. Without the use of needles, incisions, or lasers, it works to remove 20-25% of unwanted fat cells, flushing them out of the body as waste over time, never to return. With CoolSculpting Elite, you can maximize the results of dieting and exercise, achieving the slim, sculpted physique you desire – without downtime!
What is CoolSculpting Elite?
CoolSculpting Elite builds on the power of CoolSculpting Legacy, a system that uses cryolipolysis to rid the body of stubborn fat. Because fat cells freeze before skin and tissue, the treatment is inherently safe and effective. The fat cells are naturally discarded while your skin’s outer layers remain perfectly preserved and protected.
How is the CoolSculpting Elite different from its predecessor?
CoolSculpting Elite comes with dual applicators that make treatment faster and easier, as two regions of the body can now be addressed simultaneously in a single session. Instead of having to wait the traditional 12 weeks to see results, patients can now experience visible changes within 6-8 weeks. The new C-shaped handpieces fit more naturally with the body’s curves, improving comfort, and they can treat 18% more fat than before. CoolSculpting Elite can treat up to 9 key areas of the body, including the following:
- Bra rolls
- Back rolls
- Buttock rolls
- Upper arms
- Under the chin
CoolSculpting Elite is also FDA-approved to combat skin laxity by stimulating the body’s regeneration of collagen. This natural skin-tightening benefit, in addition to fat removal, makes CoolSculpting Elite among the most popular and effective cosmetic treatments currently on the market.
How does CoolSculpting Elite compare to liposuction?
While both CoolSculpting Elite and liposuction are methods of body contouring that allow you to trim and slim areas of your body prone to bulges and fatty deposits, that is where the similarities end. Liposuction is a surgical procedure to remove larger fat deposits with fat extraction. It requires tiny incisions through which the fat cells are extracted via cannula.
CoolSculpting Elite is a completely different process. It relies on controlled cold energy applied to fatty areas, affecting only the fat cells, which your body will naturally shed in the weeks and months ahead. The treatment requires no anesthetic, no downtime, and no incisions. You may immediately return to your normal activities as soon as you leave our private clinic.
What can I expect during my session?
Your CoolSculpting Elite procedure will be performed in the privacy and comfort of our Vancouver, Washington private clinic, where you can relax comfortably, reading, resting, listening to music, or watching movies. Once you’re settled, a cool gel will be applied to the treatment area. Next, controlled cooling action combined with vacuum suction is applied using the CoolSculpting Elite applicators, freezing away a percentage of the fat cells in the area. The CoolSculpting Elite applicators will be applied to the areas you want to slim and trim with precision. Treatment can generally be completed in less than one hour. Multiple treatments may be desired to achieve an even more significant degree of fat reduction.

When will Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting Elite?
CoolSculpting Elite is not designed to be a method of losing weight. Rather, the technology helps to refine your body’s curves, especially when dieting and exercise have failed to produce dramatic results. Clients interested in CoolSculpting Elite in Portland should be in overall good health, close to their desired weight, and realistic in their expectations for their outcome.
Is there any recovery needed?
As there is no surgery associated with CoolSculpting Elite, you may return to your usual activities as soon as your session is complete. You may experience a slight tingling and tugging sensation as the CoolSculpting Elite applicators are applied, along with some temporary numbness for a few hours following treatment. Additionally, some patients experience slight bruising, stinging, and swelling, symptoms that typically fade quickly, within a matter of hours.
When will I notice the results?
You will gradually see the results of your Portland CoolSculpting Elite session, as the body slowly sheds the fat cells affected by the treatment. Within the first 3-4 weeks, you will begin to notice a thinning of the fat layers in the areas treated. As your body sweeps away the dead, frozen fat cells, they will be removed from your body for good. The final slimming effect is achieved at about 6-8 weeks following treatment.
