How It Works

How Does CoolSculpting Elite Work?


CoolSculpting Elite® for Northern Colorado

CoolSculpting Elite is exactly what it sounds like it is: the sculpting of your body through the aid of cooling. When the temperature of your body’s fat cells hit around 40 degrees, they die with no harm to the nearby organs or skin. This results in about a 20% reduction in fat cells in the treated area, taking between two and four months for the full effects to be seen. However, there is no downtime, anesthesia, surgery, or needles, making this non-invasive procedure easy.

CoolSculpting Elite®, an easy, long-term solution to eliminate ares of stubborn fat, offers a long-term solution that can reduce a portion of this stubborn fat and we offer this incredible med spa treatment right here at Xanadu Med Spa in Fort Collins.

The results of CoolSculpting Elite can be permanent as long as you seek a healthier lifestyle with a healthy diet and exercise. CoolSculpting Elite is not the cure for a poor diet. While you are removing fat cells, you still have fat cells that can expand if you eat poorly, eliminating any results you get from this procedure. As with any procedure, individual results may vary. However, many patients are satisfied with the results they experience, noticing a reduced appearance of visible bulges in many common trouble spots. These include unwanted fat along the chin and jawline, back, upper arms, abdomen, flanks, thighs, and buttocks.

The secret lies in a method called Cryolipolysis, which means “fat freezing.” Frozen fat cells go through a process called apoptosis, a natural process in which they die off and fade away. During this process, which can take up to four to six months to complete, the fat cells are consumed by white blood cells, filtered, and processed by the body.

While it is not a weight-loss treatment, CoolSculpting Elite is an FDA-cleared procedure and it is the No. 1 non-surgical fat-reduction treatment used by doctors.

The Benefits Of CoolSculpting Elite

Each of us has a certain amount of fat cells that we are born with. Some of these cells are more stubborn than others, and they may be resistant to even the healthiest diet and most targeted exercise regimen. Sometimes these areas are referred to as “muffin tops,” “love handles,” and “belly pooches.” For years, individuals have either had to live with this stubborn fat or undergo invasive surgery to reduce their bulges — that is, until now.

CoolSculpting Elite offers the most advanced fat-reduction technology in the industry, and it is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction procedure available. Through controlled cooling, stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise is treated. The result is smoother, more appealing contours. The treatment can take about 35 minutes and is performed at our med spa during your lunch break. It’s the coolest, most innovative, non-surgical and natural way to reduce that stubborn fat.


Recap the benefits of CoolSculpting Elite

What Does A Fort Collins Coolsculpting Treatment Look Like?

You may need more than one treatment in order to see the results you desire. In addition, some people regularly undergo a CoolSculpting Elite treatment in order to maintain their look. This FDA-approved fat freezing technology was developed by scientists in Massachusetts. The treatment is quick, with no downtime. During the treatment, the fat is drawn into a cooling panel, where all you will feel is a cold sensation. After about five minutes, the area goes numb. You will either be seated or lying down during the treatment. You can even watch TV, catch up on emails, or read a book during your treatment session. CoolSculpting Elite is a great alternative to liposuction as there are no incisions. It is not a permanent weight loss solution for obese people.

A Natural, Cool Solution to Body Sculpting in Fort Collins

Unlike other fat-reduction procedures that use lasers, sonic waves, and surgical intervention, CoolSculpting Elite works with your body’s natural processes.

More invasive treatments may be effective, but they come with the risk of injury to surrounding tissue in the area being treated. Beyond the risk of injury, other treatments require significant periods of downtime to allow your body to recover from the trauma it has undergone. Totally uncool, if you ask us.

CoolSculpting Elite was developed by Harvard scientists to specifically achieve improved contours without burning, shattering, or extracting fat cells from your body. Its patented procedure uses a targeted cooling process that works below the skin’s surface to freeze unwanted fat cells to the point of reduction. No other tissue is frozen in the process — only the fat cells are, which means no knives, no needles, no suction, and no scars. CoolSculpting Elite maintains the supple qualities of your skin while reducing stubborn fat below.

Top 3 Benefits of the New CoolSculpting® Elite

1. CoolSculpting® Elite targets more of your treatment area.

Thanks to the unique C-shaped handles, CoolSculpting® Elite is designed to target more of your treatment area, especially in the following body areas:




Upper arms

Underneath the buttocks

And more

In fact, clinical trials demonstrated that CoolSculpting® Elite was able to target an 18% larger cooling area, meaning more of your desired treatment area can be targeted with this new technology.  In addition, the target tissue fills and contacts the entire cooling area better than the old handpieces making the most of each cycle and allowing better destruction of fat cells.

2. Two handles can be used at once.

The previous generation of CoolSculpting® technology was limited to a single handle, which limited the body areas that you could have treated in one session. If you wanted to increase the areas you could treat within one session, you would have to have another CoolSculpting® machine in the room (this technique is known as DualSculpting).

DualSculpting can be achieved with a single machine thanks to the CoolSculpting® Elite. Since there are two handles within a single machine you can treat more stubborn fat cells with just one treatment!

3. Coolsculpting Elite® is More Comfortable!

The new Coolsculpting® Elite handpieces have superior gentle vacuum technology which along with the new improved C-shaped cups means less squeezing of the tissue.  The result is a very comfortable treatment even when 2 areas are treated simultaneously!  And no down-time! 

Long term side effects are very rare with Coolsculpting® Elite.  Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH), a thickening of the treated area, has occurred historically in 1 of 4,000 treatments and was more common with the first generation device used up to 2016.  The Cooladvantage handpiece introduced in late 2016 reduced the incidence by 1/3rd and squeezed the tissue much less, making the procedure more comfortable as well as safer.  The new Cool Elite handpieces are gentler still despite better results, and there are no reported cases of PAH with this system.

Minimal Downtime and Lasting Results

Perhaps the best part about CoolSculpting Elite is the minimal downtime that the procedure entails. The treatment itself takes very little time, making it simple to fit into your daily schedule. What’s more, after your treatment, you may even be able to get right back to your busy routine.

Results may not be visible right away because it can take four to six months for your body to naturally process the fat cells. However, with a healthy diet and adequate exercise, we’re confident you’ll experience some type of effective results, understanding that results can vary from client to client.

Clinical findings on the effectiveness of CoolSculpting were published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, reporting “Caliper measurements demonstrated 23% reduction in fat layer thickness at 3 months.” Investigator assessments of CoolSculpting before and after pictures concluded “86% of subjects” showed improvement at the treatment area, and patient surveys revealed “82% of patients would recommend the procedure to a friend.”
