Get to Know How CoolSculpting Technology Works 

Who would have thought that without surgery or downtime, you could freeze away fat just where you want to? This is the incredible prospect offered by CoolSculpting Elite — a possibility that almost sounds too good to be true. But amazingly, it is true. CoolSculpting has helped more than 8 million people around the globe get rid of unwanted fat from belly bulges to muffin tops and most other hard-to-tone parts of the body too.

Learning about the science behind CoolSculpting will help you understand why the benefits of this groundbreaking treatment are not only good, but they are also true.

What is CoolSculpting Elite?

CoolSculpting Elite, the most advanced CoolSculpting technology, is the only FDA-cleared treatment to freeze and eliminate stubborn fat. Nonsurgical, noninvasive CoolSculpting is a fat reduction treatment, not a weight loss treatment. Each treatment permanently eliminates 20-25% of fat cells in the treated area.

If this still sounds a bit fantastical, it isn’t. Just ask the Harvard scientists who discovered cryolipolysis.

What is Cryolipolysis?

Cryolipolysis is the use of really, really cold temperature to freeze fat. During this process, fat cells are damaged to the point of rupture – basically destroyed — and those former fat cells are simply and naturally eliminated by your body. And while cryolipolysis destroys fat cells, it leaves the surrounding tissues unaffected.

How Does CoolSculpting Elite Work?

CoolSculpting Elite takes advantage of the fat destroying abilities of cryolipolysis to target unwanted fat on many areas of the body, as well as below the chin — precisely where you need it and nowhere else. During the weeks following treatment, your body naturally eliminates the old fat cells, and once they have been and destroyed and eliminated, they do not come back. This makes CoolSculpting Elite a permanent treatment, as long as you maintain a steady weight. (Remaining fat cells can expand if you gain weight, so keep that healthy diet and workout program going!)

What Are the Added Benefits of New CoolSculpting Elite?

CoolSculpting Elite features redesigned applicators that contact more of the skin’s surface to provide a better, more targeted treatment. And with dual applicators, CoolSculpting Elite can treat two areas of fat simultaneously. These updates combine to give you better, faster results.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can EMSCULPT NEO do for me?

EMSCULPT NEO is an amazing noninvasive body sculpting treatment. It’s perfect for patients who are looking to get summer body ready! With this state-of-the-art, two-in-one technology, you build muscle and burn fat at the same time! This treatment provides a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat and 25% growth in muscle on the treated area after a recommended number of treatments.

How does EMSCULPT NEO work?

While you lie down and relax, EMSCULPT NEO sends high-intensity energies deep below your skin, making your muscles contract in a big way that is like doing thousands of crunches or squats in a few minutes. While your muscles are contracting, the energy from the applicator simultaneously sends warmth to your fat cells, heating them up to the point of destruction. So you build real muscle from the contractions while destroying fat cells that are later naturally eliminated by your body.

How many EMCULPT NEO treatments will I need?

The recommended treatment plan is 4-6 treatments, one week apart. Depending on the patient, you may see improvement in your muscle tone, core strength and posture within a few weeks. And you’ll see fat reduction continue for about 12 weeks after your last treatment.

Are there any patients for whom you do not recommend EMSCULPT NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO is great because it has been shown to be safe and approved for all body and skin types. Contraindications include hernia, recent surgery, and pregnancy, so if a patient has any of these conditions, they should wait until they don’t to get EMSCULPT NEO.

What is the difference between CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT NEO?

CoolSculpting is a well-known treatment that is excellent for reducing unwanted fat in targeted areas. EMSCULPT NEO also reduces fat, but it has the benefit of building muscle, which is what its predecessor EMSCULPT was made to do.

Which treatment you choose depends on what your body needs and your personal goals. If you have great muscle tone and only need to get rid of some extra fat in a specific area like your abdomen or below your chin, CoolSculpting is an excellent option. But if you have loss of muscle tone and need more of a lift or tightening to a certain area like your abs or butt, EMSCULPT NEO is your two-in-one solution.

What is your favorite thing about EMSCULPT NEO?

Not only is this treatment super convenient with one treatment lasting only 30 minutes, but there is also no downtime! Patients can go about their day as they normally would immediately after their visit.
