The FDA first cleared CoolSculpting in 2010 for freezing and destroying unwanted fat cells. After a decade of consistent research and innovation, Allergan, the creator of CoolSculpting has developed a new and improved device called CoolSculpting Elite. This short article will explain the benefits and difference of CoolSculpting Elite.

Sundin, provides CoolSculpting Elite body contouring treatment to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations.
CoolSculpting is a form of noninvasive fat removal procedure that doesn’t cause any damage to the skin. It doesn’t require any downtime as well. CoolSculpting is among the more popular noninvasive body contouring devices. It has been cleared for treating fat in over 80 countries and has had more extensive research as compared to any other body sculpting device.
Understanding CoolSculpting Elite
CoolSculpting Elite is the new and improved version of Legacy. The device offers the same benefits along with a few others:
- Uses cryolipolysis for freezing fat cells
- Noninvasive and nonsurgical
- Zero downtime
CoolSculpting Elite is similar to CoolSculpting Legacy. It has been cleared by the FDA for removing unwanted body fat from the following nine areas:
- Inner, outer, and front of the thighs
- Bra fat on the torso under the armpits
- Flanks or love handles at the waist
- Upper arms
- Underneath the buttocks, known as ‘banana rolls’
- Back fat
- Submandibular area under the jawline
- Submental area under the chin
Both CoolSculpting Legacy and CoolSculpting Elite requires multiple sessions for achieving desired cosmetic results. However, CoolSculpting Elite provides more effective results in a shorter appointment time.
Why is CoolSculpting Elite Superior?
- Better Applicators
CoolSculpting Elite applicators are C-shaped instead of being U-shaped and are available in 7 different shapes and sizes. The new and improved design is a better fit for the body’s natural curves.
- Fat Removal
Cooling process will take place faster providing better results because of improved contact between the skin’s surface and applicator. CoolSculpting Elite removes 20 to 25% fat as compared to 18 to 20% fat removal in case of CoolSculpting Legacy.
- Quicker Results
CoolSculpting Elite has more contact with the target surface area. It covers 18% more skin as compared to CoolSculpting Legacy. This means that larger treatment areas can be covered in lesser time. Each device has two applicators which can be used at the same time in a process called Dual Sculpting. Two different treatment areas can be addressed by CoolSculpting Elite at the same time.
- More Comfort
CoolSculpting Elite machine is more advanced resulting in more precise and quieter treatments. CoolSculpting Elite feels like mild pulling and pinching in the treatment area. It also involves superior freeing technology that reduces discomfort by freezing the affected cells faster.
The treatment session feels more relaxing. The procedure also reduces physical discomfort. CoolSculpting Elite has a decade of research and design improvements providing for a better overall experience.
