Proper exercise and diet will always be the best ways to achieve safe and sustained weight loss. But what happens when you’ve hit a plateau and can’t seem to burn off those last few pounds?
For thousands of people around the country, Coolscuplting And Coolscuplting Elite have become the best way to remove the last few pounds from trouble areas on nine different areas of the body.
CoolScuplting Elite is the first FDA-approved procedure of its kind and has quickly become one of the most sought-after outpatient procedures for people looking to shed those last few stubborn pounds of fat.
What body parts does Coolscuplting Elite target?
According to Dr. Joseph Franzese, Coolscuplting Elite targets nine distinct body areas. They include: Under the chin, jawline areas, thighs, abdomen, flanks, bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks, and the upper arms.
Given that those areas are often where people struggle to shed the last few pounds from dieting and exercise, it’s not surprising that the non-surgical procedure has become such a big hit among the health-conscious.
How Does CoolSculpting Elite Work?
CoolSculpting Elite is the product-friendly name for a process called cryolipolysis. The procedure, completed in about 35 minutes per targeted area, freezes and kills fat cells.
CoolScuplting Elite targets twice as many fatty areas as the original process, thanks to a dual applicator attached to the patient’s bare skin. At first, a slight tugging feels on the skin as the applicator attaches. The tugging or pinching sensation is eventually alleviated as the CoolScuplting Elite machine numbers the skin as it cools.
As the team at the Cleveland Clinic explains, the process “is designed to reduce localized fat deposits or bulges that do not respond to diet and exercise.”
By removing fat cells completely through this freezing method, you are less likely to see immediate rebound effects compared to dieting, which will deflate fat cells but not remove them completely. When you freeze fat cells, your body typically removes the frozen and broken-down fat tissues within 4–6 months.
Remember that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure for general use. Obese patients and patients with underlying conditions are urged to speak directly with their medical professional of choice to find sustainable long-term solutions.
When Will I Notice The Results?
This is a great question; the answer depends on each individual. In some cases, you may notice the final results within one month. In stubborn areas, it can take up to three months to fully realize the effects.
In some cases, you may need to return for follow-up procedures if there are still areas of fat that you’d like to have targeted for further results.
Dr. Joseph Franzese notes that, on average, you can expect a 20% to 25% reduction in fat for each targeted area, with the results varying by patient.
How Much Does CoolSculpting Elite Cost?
A full treatment plan with CoolSculpting Elite typically costs between $2000 and $4000. Targeting multiple areas will bring you to the higher end of the total cost.
We’ve seen various programs offering free consultations for the procedure, and many providers offer flexible payment plans for individuals looking to target the final steps in their weight loss journey.
Remember, CoolScupting Elite is a fat reduction procedure, and like many other weight loss procedures, it will not prevent future weight gain. Following the procedure, your best long-term weight control solution is a healthy diet and exercise plan.
