Coolsculpting Elite vs Coolsculpting?

CoolSculpting® and CoolSculpting® Elite are two or the most popular non-surgical fat loss treatments available on the market today. They may sound quite similar but with the technological advancements we have experienced over the past decade,things have definitely changed for the better. It is certainly worth looking at their differences and similarities to help understand the evolution of these revolutionary fat-freezing methods that help get rid of unwanted fat in certain areas of your body.

What is CoolSculpting® ?

Straight from the USA, Coolsculpting® is a patented device created in 2008. Based on the principle of cryolipolysis, Coolsculpting allows you to tighten up localized fat deposits without surgery.

CoolSculpting®, also known as cryolipolysis, freezes fat cells and breaks them down. In the original CoolSculpting® machine, fat is pulled between two plates using a vacuum, which makes the area hot enough to freeze the fat rather than the skin, destroying only the fat cells in a process called apoptosis. The frozen fat cells are eventually removed from the body.

Both CoolSculpting® and CoolSculpting® Elite are suitable for people whose body weight is no more than 30 kg from their ideal weight and who have a healthy lifestyle. It is important to note that Coolsculpting® is not meant to replace a healthy lifestyle and exercise but can facilitate getting rid of stubborn pockets of fat. We always recommend booking a consultation with a coolsculpting® specialist to learn more about the process and specific details.

CoolSculpting® has been used in our clinic for years with great success, but CoolSculpting® Elite is the most advanced procedure because it is safer, more comfortable and produces faster and better results compared to its predecessor.

Both CoolSculpting® and CoolSculpting® Elite are effective ways to reduce fat, but CoolSculpting® Elite is a more advanced option since it has evolved with the advanced technologies and can treat larger areas with new and improved applicators for better results overall.

How does CoolSculpting® Elite compare to CoolSculpting®?

Here are some examples of how the CoolSculpting® Elite experience has improved since the inception of the original CoolSculpting®.

1) Faster results with fewer procedures

Thanks to advanced technology and techniques, patients get results faster than ever before. CoolSculpting® Elite now has two applicators per device, allowing more fat to be frozen in less time.

The dual applicators allow two areas to be treated at the same time instead of one after the other, significantly reducing treatment time.

2) More fat reduction

The new holder with CoolSculpting® Elite technology cools more tissue per cycle because the redesigned holder provides better access to the treatment area. As with the previous CoolSculpting® device, it is possible to reduce fat by 20-25% in a single treatment. And with the Elite device, more tissue can be treated per treatment, achieving better results than before.

3) The new applicator design are more comfortable and effective

The design of the applicator for the CoolSculpting® Elite treatment has been improved. In previous CoolSculpting® treatments, you may have experienced discomfort and tension. The new contour nozzle molds better to your natural shape for maximum results and comfort. The new C-shape instead of a U-shape also means less pressure on the tissue.

4) Improved safety

This new patented technique reduces any potential bruising in treated areas. Compression can interrupt oxygen supply to the treated adipose tissue and cause paradoxical adipose tissue hyperplasia (ATH), in which the treated area may harden and swell rather than shrink. This side effect has occurred in about 1 in 4,000 Coolsculpting® procedures over the past decade. Usually PAG responds well to Kybella or liposuction treatments, but these corrective procedures can cause side effects. We have so far reported no cases of PAH with the new Coolsculpting® Elite system and expect this very rare side effect to be much less common due to the reduced pressure on the treated tissue.
