Even if you lead an active, healthy lifestyle, you may still be frustrated with pockets of stubborn fat in certain areas of your body.  At Bodify, we’ve spent years helping both men and women from Phoenix and Scottsdale feel more confident with CoolSculpting, the revolutionary fat-freezing technology that’s worlds apart from other options. However, last year, we transitioned to solely offering CoolSculpting Elite at our two Valley medical spa locations, and we continue to be blown away by the results! We commonly get asked what the difference between CoolSculpting and CoolSculpting Elite is, so we’re here to break it down for you!

What’s the Difference Between CoolSculpting and CoolSculpting Elite?

Well, first things first – what even is CoolSculpting?  Back in 2008, doctors began to extensively research the effect of freezing temperatures on fat cells and found that fat cells hate the cold! When frozen to extreme temperatures, fat CoolSculpting Elite Applicators cells literally freeze to death while healthy cells (like skin and tissue cells) remain undamaged. It’s science! In fact, it even has a science-y name beyond just “fat-freezing;” the technology is officially called cryolipolysis. CoolSculpting was granted its first FDA-clearance in 2010 and dominated the market of nonsurgical fat reduction options for years. However, Allergen, CoolSculpting’s parent company, made a good thing even better with an overhaul of the applicator head, and CoolSculpting Elite was born.

So, what’s the difference? Simply put – CoolSculpting Elite is BETTER!  The CoolSculpting applicator head was redesigned to be 18% bigger, and the overall shape of the device was overhauled to cover more tissue area. The old CoolSculpting devices would successfully cover about 67% of the area that was pulled in. The new CoolSculpting Elite device, with its new applicator cup shape, is able to successfully cover 97% of the tissue inside the cup! This means bigger contact area, more coverage, more tissue cooled consistently, which means better results! 

With traditional CoolSculpting, about 80% of our clients had to wait about 8 weeks to see and feel changes. That’s a long time to see results you so desperately want! With CoolSculpting Elite, our clients are consistently seeing results in as little as FOUR weeks!  The “freezing” temperature that crystallizes fat cells for good is still the same – but the redesign of the applicator head means more tissue can be cooled, freezing the fat cells more evenly and consistently, resulting in more significant reduction in less amount of time than with the legacy (old!) CoolSculpting devices.  

Plus, the newly redesigned applicator heads can still treat nearly any area of the body where you have stubborn fat, just like traditional CoolSculpting. The CoolSculpting Elite system can treat the abdomen, bra line, love handles, chin area, outer thighs, inner thighs, under arms and distal thigh (knees). 

Despite the more intense results, it should be noted that CoolSculpting Elite is still completely non-invasive in the way it reduces fat and contours the body, requiring no anesthesia, no needles, and little-to-no downtime! And the results last the same way CoolSculpting results last – once the fat cells are expelled from the body, they’re gone for good. To be transparent though, the remaining fat cells can expand if you gain weight, so we encourage our clients to continue their same active, healthy lifestyle once we contour their body with CoolSculpting Elite.
