As the best CoolSculpting Elite provider in the Phoenix and Scottsdale areas, Bodify meets with a lot of men and women who want an effective way to get rid of stubborn fat. Many are curious if CoolSculpting Elite is the solution they’ve been looking for, and what results they can expect to achieve by investing in their bodies and confidence with our amazing fat-freezing technology. One of the main concerns people have is what kind of results they are going to get following their treatment, and many are concerned about whether or not they’re going to be left with excess, sagging skin following CoolSculpting Elite treatments.  It’s pretty well known that surgical options, like liposuction, can result in loose sagging skin, especially if too much fat is removed, so it’s typical for our clients to wonder if the same thing will happen after nonsurgical treatments, like CoolSculpting Elite.  So, allow us CoolSculpting experts to explain why clients aren’t left with sagging skin following CoolSculpting Elite!

Why CoolSculpting Elite Doesn’t Leave You With Sagging Skin 

There are many reasons why freezing your fat with CoolSculpting Elite won’t result in sagging skin. First – let’s compare our treatment method to surgical options like liposuction, which is notorious for leaving people with sagging skin. Liposuction requires cutting into the skin in the treatment area, breaking up the unwanted fat, and then suctioning it out through a hollow tube to create new contours. Typically, the aggressive nature of liposuction to remove fat means the skin is damaged in the process and too much fat is removed too quickly, so the already damaged skin doesn’t have a chance to shrink over time.

why coolsculpting elite doesn’t leave you with sagging skinNon-surgical, non-invasive CoolSculpting Elite is different. Instead of manually breaking up and removing unwanted fat, our controlled applicators apply extremely cold temperatures externally to freeze the fat cells in the areas our clients want to contour, without damaging the skin or other tissues.  Before the applicator even touches the skin, a protective gel pad is expertly applied to protect the skin so the healthy skin cells are left alone and remain undamaged, and gradually the body naturally expels the crystallized fat cells over a few weeks to a few months. 

Like liposuction, sagging skin is often a result of rapid weight loss where the skin is unable to retain its elasticity. Well, CoolSculpting Elite is not a weight loss procedure and has never been advertised as one. For the best results, clients actually need to be within 5-40 pounds of their ideal weight for their height. And while we understand people are anxious to see immediate results from CoolSculpting Elite, the gradual nature of the results that can be achieved is actually a blessing in disguise!  The fat reduction occurs slowly while your body flushes out the frozen fat cells, so the skin has ample time to retract and recover. Skin is actually an extremely elastic organ, so it can usually retract and expand as needed with gradual weight loss and gain. CoolSculpting allows the skin to contract slowly since the crystallized fat cells disappear gradually after treatment, reducing the possibility of sagging skin. Think of it this way: if you’ve ever seen extreme weight loss photos (often after someone has had some sort of “stomach stapling” surgery), you’ve seen that when people lose a lot of weight too fast instead of gradually, the skin doesn’t have time to contract, and that’s why they’re left with hanging excess skin, that can only be removed with a skin removal surgery.  That definitely won’t happen with CoolSculpting Elite!
