Surely you’ve heard of CoolSculpting since it’s been around for over a decade, and hopefully you’ve heard of the newest, most-updated technology available – CoolSculpting Elite. As CoolSculpting Elite providers with clients all over Phoenix, Scottsdale, and the surrounding areas, the team at Bodify is profoundly proud of the CoolSculpting Elite technology we were FIRST in Arizona to get our hands on. In October of 2020, we were selected as only one of ten CoolSculpting providers in the entire nation to assess CoolSculpting Elite, and we are humbled to be able to say it’s likely because we have consistently reigned as Arizona’s number one CoolSculpting provider since we opened our doors in 2015, as well as being able to boast of ranking as one of the top four providers in the country. What put us on top? Our commitment to becoming experts in one technology and one technology only: cryolipolysis!

What is Cryolipolysis? 

Cryolipolysis is the scientific name for the amazing fat-freezing technology that is CoolSculpting Elite. It translates as: Cryo = icy cold + lipolysis = chemical decomposition of fat, or fat-freezing. Medical doctors, scientists, and researches (often one and the same!), had long-seen a connection between freezing temperatures and a reduction in fat. For example, small children who enjoyed a lot of popsicles often formed dimples in their cheeks! So, over a decade ago, Harvard doctors started looking more closely at that connection and realized that fat cells don’t like freezing temperatures and they’ll actually die when frozen! 

So, they developed cryolipolysis, creating CoolSculpting and now – CoolSculpting Elite! When a client comes into Bodify for CoolSculpting Elite, an updated, controlled applicator is applied to areas of the body with subcutaneous fat (the kind you can pinch), and the fat cells are frozen to a temperature so cold that they literally die (leaving other cells unharmed) and then are flushed from the body. How COOL is that!?

How COOL is CoolSculpting Elite? What Temperature Does Fat Freeze?

You may be wondering how COOL or COLD the temperature is when fat is frozen. And we get it – some people are turned off by the idea of having parts of their body be presented with freezing, cold temperatures. Many of us choose to live in Phoenix because we hate the cold, right!? Well, the temperature of CoolSculpting Elite’s applicators reaches around -10° Celsius! That’s super COOL! 

However, we can assure you – it’s not unbearable! At Bodify, we’ve frozen the fat of thousands and thousands of men and women (performing over 24,000 treatments total!), so we know that people react differently to the cold sensations of our CoolSculpting Elite applictors. Officially (according to CoolSculpting.com), “During the procedure, you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity, and sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental or submandibular area treatment.”

What we see most often is that many men and women do quickly become numb to the sensations, and are often able to fully relax during treatment. Many take the time to read, scroll their phones, watch TV, work on their computers, or even nap! So, the icy cold temperatures of CoolSculpting Elite aren’t something to worry about. Instead, focus on the amazing effectiveness of the treatment because of the science behind the technology, and trust in how safe CoolSculpting Elite is. It’s a trusted technology with 9 FDA-Clearances, over 100 peer-reviewed studies, and it’s performed safely around the world. One of the COOLEST things about CoolSculpting Elite is that it’s non-invasive and non-surgical. This means, there’s no cutting into your skin like liposuction requires, no needles, no anesthesia, and little-to-no downtime following treatment. Because of the redesigned CoolSculpting Elite applicators, men and women are seeing faster and better results than previously before. Fat cells are unique in the way they respond to freezing temperatures – other cells surrounding your unwanted fat cells are unharmed during CoolSculpting Elite.
