You may be familiar with Coolsculpting, the game-changing body contouring treatment that freezes fat away. But now there’s a new and improved version of this system that offers a more efficient and comfortable treatment. Oceana Luxe Medspa in Corpus Christi, TX, offers the Elite version of this system, which makes it possible to easily get rid of even more fat with less time in treatment.
What Is the Difference Between Coolsculpting and Coolsculpting Elite?
Less Time in Treatment
The Elite version of this system comes with two applicators, and because we have two Elite systems, that means we can treat four different parts of your body simultaneously in just 35 minutes. The ability to tackle four areas at once reduces the time you’ll spend in treatment by allowing you to accomplish more with each session.
The handpieces that rest against your body during treatment and deliver controlled cooling have also been redesigned. We now have seven handpieces in different shapes and sizes that can be used to address various parts of the body. The handpieces are C-shaped instead of U-shaped and are designed to accommodate your natural curves without pinching you. The new shapes and sizes also allow us to further customize your treatments.
More Fat Reduction
The new applicators also offer greater contact with your treatment area, increasing the amount of fat that is targeted by 30 percent. Like its predecessor, CoolSculpting Elite can reduce unwanted fat in the treatment zone by as much as 25 percent, but the new handpieces can cover a larger treatment area.
More Relaxing Treatments
The Elite version of this treatment system uses technology that is quieter, which means you can truly relax as the handpieces do their work. You will be able to sit or lie down, depending on the area you’re having treated. Most patients read, nap, or work on their laptops or phones during treatment.
How Does Coolsculpting Elite Work?
Although some aspects of its design have been redone to boost efficiency and comfort, Coolsculpting Elite works the same way as the legacy version of this treatment system. It uses temperatures that are cool enough to kill fat cells without harming surrounding skin and tissue. Fat cells are destroyed during the treatment and then flush naturally from the body during the weeks after your appointment.
During your appointment, you’ll recline comfortably while the applicators rest against your body and deliver controlled cooling. You’ll feel suctioning as the handpiece attaches to your body, and you’ll experience an initial cooling and numbing sensation. But the treatment is non-invasive and painless. Afterward, you’ll be able to get right back to your regular schedule, and you’ll start to notice a gradual slimming of the treated areas in the weeks to come.
So I Really Won’t Feel Any Discomfort?
You won’t feel any discomfort during treatment. You’ll briefly experience coolness at the start of your session, and you may feel “pins and needles” at the conclusion as your skin warms up, but there will be no pain.
When Will I See the Results?
Patients will start to notice improvement within three weeks, with their full results developing within one to three months after their session.
Why Does It Take a Few Weeks To See Results?
Although the Elite system destroys unwanted fat cells, it doesn’t remove them from your body. Your lymphatic system will take care of disposing of those fat cells, but the process takes place gradually. Drinking plenty of water and continuing to stay active after treatment are both steps you can take to support your lymphatic system as it works to flush those cells out.
Can I Book More Than One Session?
Yes. Depending on the size of your treatment area, we may recommend a series of two or more sessions to fully address your concerns.
What Parts of the Body Does This Work On?
Almost any part of the body with extra, unwanted fat can be addressed with this treatment system. The abdomen, hips, thighs, and back are all popular treatment areas. Some patients also use this treatment system to sculpt smaller areas like the upper arms or beneath the chin. Because you can target up to four different areas at one time with our Elite system, the possibilities are endless.
Is This a Safe Treatment?
This FDA-approved treatment has built-in safety measures that make it a very safe approach.
What Type of Fat Does This Target?
This treatment gets rid of subcutaneous fat, which is the jiggly fat that sits just beneath the surface of the skin. It doesn’t touch visceral fat, which is the deeper fat that surrounds the stomach.
How Much Fat Will This Get Rid Of?
Each treatment is capable of removing up to 25 percent, on average, of the fat being targeted. Individual results vary depending on the size of your treatment area and the amount of excess fat you have. Larger areas, like the back, may see less of a fat reduction than smaller, tighter areas like the knees. Patients who have more excess fat may also see less of a reduction.
Patients who undergo this treatment usually see a noticeable improvement in their figures. You’ll find that your clothes fit better, and you’ll feel more confident about your appearance.
Am I a Good Candidate?
You Want To Improve the Shape of Your Body
This contouring treatment is ideal for patients who are focused not on weight loss, but on improving the overall shape of their body. Coolsculpting can help you get rid of problem spots while also enhancing your natural curves. The needle on your scale won’t move much as a result of this treatment, but your body will look leaner, shapelier, and more youthful.
You’re Already in Pretty Good Shape
The best patients are already in pretty good physical shape, ideally with a body mass index that is less than 30, and understand that the Elite system is all about refining their look and improving what’s already in place.
You Want a Non-Surgical Treatment
If you want to transform your body without turning to surgery, this treatment may be the perfect solution. Not only is this treatment non-surgical, but it is also non-invasive, which means you won’t have to set aside any time to recover. This approach to body contouring is also a good option for patients who are not surgical candidates because of medical reasons.
You Can Maintain Your Physique
This treatment gets rid of targeted problem spots permanently, so you’ll never have to worry about them coming back. But it won’t prevent you from gaining weight elsewhere in the future, so you’ll want to stick with healthy lifestyle habits to preserve your results.
You Want a Custom Approach
Every patient is unique, and the Elite system allows us to offer a custom treatment to each individual. The Elite system can be used all over the body to achieve varying degrees of fat reduction. Once we have evaluated your body and we understand your goals, we’ll design a treatment plan just for you.
And if you are interested in incorporating any of our other cosmetic services into your plan, we can do that. Dermal fillers and laser hair removal sessions are among the services that our Elite system patients often opt to incorporate into their plans.
Do Men Ever Seek This Treatment Out?
We’ve treated many men with the Elite system. Male patients tend to have different cosmetic goals. Men often use this treatment system to slim down and achieve a more cut, lean look. Female patients tend to use the Elite system to get rid of trouble spots and unwanted fullness while enhancing their natural curves.
Will My Insurance Cover This Treatment?
Because the Elite system is a cosmetic treatment, health insurance plans generally don’t cover it, but our practice offers financing options.
What Is the Best Age To Pursue This Treatment?
This treatment is suitable for most healthy adults. These sessions can be scheduled whenever you’re at a point where you’re ready to tackle stubborn problem spots that have resisted diet and exercise.
Are You Ready To Get the Body You’ve Always Wanted?
Coolsculpting has made a name for itself because it offers great results through easy, painless treatments. The Elite system takes those results to the next level by allowing patients to target more unwanted fat while also reducing treatment times. Getting your body into tip-top shape has never been so convenient. What are you waiting for? Call Oceana Luxe Medspa in Corpus Christi, TX, and book your initial consultation today!
