If stubborn fat is keeping you from reaching your goals, there is a nonsurgical solution that can help eliminate that stubborn fat, and it’s not a gimmick. It’s safe, scientific, and painless, and it delivers real, natural results. At Worcester Dermatology, with locations in Worcester and Chelmsford, MA, we offer Coolsculpting Elite, a treatment that takes fat loss to the next level.
What Is Coolsculpting Elite?
Updates are important because they make things better. The original Coolsculpting that patients know and love has received an update, and that update is so significant that the treatment now goes by an updated name. You may have heard of Coolsculpting, but now it’s Coolsculpting Elite. Has something changed? In short, yes. We’ll explain.
The Elite Difference
All the good things you’ve heard about Coolsculpting just got even better. This treatment can still target and treat pockets of stubborn fat; Coolsculpting Elite just does it better than the original version. Coolsculpting Elite deserved a name change to alert everyone of its new status as the best body contouring treatment yet. The new device is fitted with an applicator shaped like a C instead of the original U-shaped applicator.
The C-shaped applicator helps improve the treatment and the results by helping create a better suction, a uniform distribution of cooling temperatures, and better tissue interaction. The new applicator also helps speed your treatment times while covering 18 percent more surface area during treatment.
What Can It Treat?
Coolsculpting Elite treats pockets of stubborn fat. If you have areas that won’t respond to your diet changes or fitness routine, you probably have stubborn fat. However, this treatment can finally help eliminate that stubborn fat for good. Thanks to recent advancements and updates, the device now features different applicators that can help better target and treat your stubborn fat even faster. The most common treatment areas include the:
- Submental and submandibular fullness (chin and jawline fat)
- Bra roll
- Love handles
- Inner and outer thighs
How Does It Work?
This treatment can utilize dual applicators to help target your problem areas in half the time. When you arrive for your treatment, you’ll be situated in one of our treatment rooms. Your technician will then place the appropriate applicator on your problem area, and the treatment will begin. You’ll feel an intense cooling sensation that will subside as the area becomes numb.
The cooling process will freeze your fat cells and destroy them permanently. Once the cells are destroyed, you won’t see an initial improvement in your treatment area, but your body will slowly begin to eliminate those dead fat cells in the next several weeks. You will gradually notice that your problem areas will feel and look tighter and toned, and so will everyone else, but since the results are gradual, no one will suspect you went and had something done.
How Long Does It Take?
This treatment can take as little as 35 minutes to complete. It may take longer if you treat different areas at the same appointment, but you can treat multiple areas at once and reduce the treatment time by 50 percent, thanks to the dual applicators.
Will I Need More Than One Treatment?
After just one treatment, most patients will experience a 20 to 25 percent reduction in their total fat volume. However, results do vary based on the patient and their target treatment areas. During your initial consultation, one of our experts will review your goals and confirm that Coolsculpting Elite is right for you. Then, we will design your custom treatment plan and give you a better idea of whether or not you will need more than one treatment to achieve your desired results.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Most patients notice a 20 to 25 percent decrease in the total fat volume in their problem areas. This is a significant amount of fat, and once your body flushes those dead fat cells from the area, you will see some dramatic results. These results typically appear within the first few weeks of your initial treatment and only improve with time. Most patients notice their final results within 12 weeks of their initial treatment.
Maintaining Your Results
This treatment can significantly reduce the total fat volume in your treatment area, but gaining weight after your treatment can negatively affect your results. Any fat cells left in your treatment area may expand with weight gain, which can ruin your results. It’s important that you maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid weight gain post-treatment to enjoy your results long-term.
Coolsculpting Elite delivers results that are intended to be permanent, and they can be, but you are responsible for maintaining your results. All it takes is a healthy lifestyle and consistent exercise routine for you to enjoy your results indefinitely.
Who Is a Candidate?
The best candidates for Coolsculpting Elite are men and women at or near their goal weight with pockets of stubborn fat that are resistant to exercise and nutrition. Ideal candidates are healthy individuals who understand how important maintaining a healthy lifestyle is to their results. This treatment is not a weight-loss treatment, and it cannot treat areas with significant amounts of fat. Those who qualify as obese will not qualify as treatment candidates.
