Our bodies change as we age, and maintaining our body is not as easy as it once was. Your clothes may fit differently or it may take a little bit longer to lose some pounds or inches than you would like. That is where CoolSculpting® Elite comes in. CoolSculpting® Elite helps you get rid of those hard-to-reach areas of fat on your body that just won’t budge.
How Does CoolSculpting® Elite Work?
CoolSculpting® Elite works by using a process called cryolipolysis, where the fat cells are frozen and eliminated. The chosen applicator delivers intense cooling to the fatty tissue without damaging the surrounding skin, nerves, or vessels. Over time, the body will naturally metabolize and eliminate the crystallized cells.
CoolSculpting® has one of those neat origin stories that seems almost too good to be true. Two Massachusetts General Hospital physicians, Dr. Dieter Manstein and Dr. R. Rox Anderson, noticed that children who eat popsicles were beginning to develop dimples in their cheeks. They put their brains together to see if this process, colloquially known as popsicle panniculitis, could work on other parts of the body for fat loss and body contouring treatments. And from this, CoolSculpting® was born!
Candidates for CoolSculpting® Elite
CoolSculpting® Elite can target fat in the following areas:
- Hips and flanks
- Back and bra line
- Banana roll
- Submental area (double chin)
It is recommended that you schedule a consultation with Sanctuary Medical Center so that we can examine your body and evaluate whether or not you are a true candidate for this treatment. CoolSculpting® Elite is not a weight-loss procedure, so candidates must have maintained a stable weight for several months before undergoing this body sculpting treatment.
