Losing Weight vs Eliminating Fat
They may sound similar, but losing weight and eliminating fat are actually 2 different things.
Losing weight doesn’t always lead to a more sculpted appearance, but eliminating treated fat cells can change the shape and contours of your body.
-All about fat cells
The number of fat cells varies from person to person, but it doesn’t change much once you’re an adult. You have a certain number of fat cells, and they expand or shrink according to your diet and exercise routine. Some people may have stubborn pockets of fat that are more difficult to reduce despite diet and exercise.
With CoolSculpting® Elite, you can pinpoint exact trouble spots where you’d like to reduce fat. The treatment is FDA-cleared in 9 different areas from double chins to back fat. You will work directly with a provider to customize a treatment plan that’s unique to you and your body contouring goals.
-It’s not weight loss, it’s fat loss
CoolSculpting helps sculpt your body in certain areas. You’ll find your clothes fit better, look better, and feel better on you.

Introducing Our CoolAdvantage Applicator
We’re excited about our addition of the new CoolAdvantage applicator. CoolAdvantage helps shorten your treatment time to only 35 minutes instead of one hour. Most patients say it’s highly comfortable with an enhanced cup design. The CoolAdvantage design allows for a larger cooling area, meaning more tissue is treated for amazing results. The treatment lowers the temperature of your fat cells to -10° Celsius, causing a cryolipolysis, or natural death of the cell. There is no worry about damaging the surrounding cells. It’s a quick, efficient way to target bumps of fat.
CoolSculpting Process Explained
CoolSculpting busts stubborn fat by targeting and destroying unwanted cells. It isn’t a way to lose weight, but a way to burn fat cells. It’s done without fat reduction surgery, targeting fat cells right below the surface of your skin. CoolSculpting won’t damage any skin on the surface. Your body is able to naturally eliminate frozen fat cells. We personalize each CoolSculpting treatment for each patient. We’ll discuss the process in detail, targeting specific areas of your body. We can target multiple areas in one session for most patients. Once your fat cells are gone, all you need to do is maintain a healthy lifestyle to keep them away.
CoolSculpting® uses cryolipolysis, which is just a technical way to say fat freezing. When fat cells freeze, they die and are then naturally eliminated through the body’s natural process. Don’t worry: This process happens so gradually, you won’t necessarily notice a difference in your day-to-day life.
While you will see up to a 20-25% fat reduction in the treated area after a single treatment, it depends on the person and the area being treated. Your provider will work with you to determine if additional treatments are necessary to reach your desired goal.
The CoolSculpting® treatment helps eliminate stubborn pockets of fat. But, since CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss treatment, it is possible to gain weight posttreatment if you don’t keep up your healthy habits. This kind of weight gain will most likely happen evenly throughout your body, not just in treatment areas.
