Coolsculpting Elite is Allergan's state of the art Coolsculpting technology to remove fat deposits from the body by freezing the tissue. It is FDA cleared and the most effective way to remove fat non-surgically, and with no downtime. It has been on the market since 2013 but has undergone significant improvements in the cooling technology to treat the patient faster, remove more fat, be more comfortable and be able to treat two sites at once. Dr. Buenaventura has been offering Coolsculpting since 2013.
While liposuction is still considered the gold standard for stubborn fat deposit removal, Coolsculpting Elite is a non-surgical option. Fat removal is more gradual but does not require anesthesia or downtime. To effectively get the superficial and deep layers of fat, each site is treated twice, about a month apart. The initial treatment tends to address the superficial fat layer while the second treatment addresses the deeper layers of fat. Areas we commonly treat include abdomen, love handles, bra rolls, back, double chin and arms. We find for thighs, that liposuction is usually a more effective option.
We will first see you for consultation, examine the areas of concern and then simulate with CoolElite applicator templates the treatment plan and determine how many sessions you need. Price will be a function of the total number of sessions planned. For example, to address abdomen and love handles, most patients will plan 8-10 sessions. These can be done in one day, or in smaller blocks of time depending on your schedule. With Coolsculpting Elite we can now perform "dualsculpting" where we can treat 2 sights at the same time which significantly lessens the number of hours needed for treatment and in is more effective fat removal. Each site takes about 35 minutes.
