Is stubborn fat keeping you from being your ideal self? CoolSculpting Elite® for women targets diet and exercise resistant fat so you can look and feel your best.

Knowledge for the Empowered Patient

Sometimes diet and exercise aren’t enough. Now matter how hard you try, some stubborn fat cells refuse to budge. CoolSculpting Elite® for women can be an effective and efficient way to remove those immoveable fat cells and define the contours of your body. We’re here to provide you with everything you need to know about CoolSculpting Elite®, because a well-informed patient is an empowered patient.

What is Coolsculpting Elite®?

CoolSculpting Elite® is a non-invasive procedure that permanently removes fat cells with cooling technology. It is one of the most efficient, well-studied, and safest aesthetic procedures for the body. CoolSculpting Elite® for women helps shape and tone the body to your desired contour by targeting fat cells with minimal pain and time.

The Difficulties of Fat Loss in Women

Having stubborn fat can be frustrating for many reasons but for women especially. Did you know your biology may be the cause of your hard-to-lose fat? Compared to men, women have a lower percentage of muscle and a higher percentage of fat. Since muscles burn calories faster than fat, that means women have a slower metabolic rate and burn fewer calories. Women’s bodies also tend to store fat in hard to target places such as the hips and thighs.

Losing fat can also be more difficult for women after menopause as hormones have a significant impact on our metabolism. As estrogen decreases during menopause, it can decrease bone strength, cause cholesterol levels to fluctuate, and increase body fat. While exercise and a healthy diet can help regulate the effects of lower estrogen and help maintain weight, some fat can still seem resistant to it. CoolSculpting Elite® for women can be a wonderful addition to regular diet and exercise to permanently remove some of that hard-to-lose fat.

How CoolSculpting Elite® for Women Works

Created through Harvard research and FDA-approved in 2009, CoolSculpting Elite® works by freezing fat cells with a process called cryolipolysis. This process works as fat cells are more susceptible to freezing than other cells. The cold temperature triggers a process called apoptosis, which is the natural death of a cell. Other cell-eating cells then surround the damaged fat cell and dispose of it.

How Does CoolSculpting Keep My Skin Safe?

Skin cells have a higher freezing point than fat cells. With the targeted cooling technology of our CoolSculpting Elite® applicators, it ensures that fat cells are removed without harming any other part of your body. The applicator also has built-in safety features that will turn itself off if the temperature gets too low. If you have any concerns about your skin, one of our providers can tell you all the ways we put your safety first.

What to Expect for Your Consultation

Before you can start your CoolSculpting Elite® treatments, we want you to book a consultation with one of our providers. Here’s what you can expect during your consultation.


Discuss Current Health

At the consultation you and your provider will discuss your health history, previous surgeries, and any current medications. We want to determine the state of your present health to make sure you have a safe procedure and smooth recovery.

Target Area

After deciding if you should proceed with the procedure, you’ll discuss what areas you want to target. CoolSculpting Elite® for women can target the neck, jawline, upper back, upper arms, abdomen, flanks, thighs, and under buttocks. How much fat you can lose depends on size and amount of fat cells in the targeted area.

Plan Sessions

Once you have decided your target area, your provider will let you know the amount of sessions you’ll need to achieve your goals. You can have as many treatments as you want within a session, and most patients can achieve their desired results within one to two sessions.

How the Procedure Works

After you receive a consultation with one of our providers and create a personalized treatment plan, the procedure itself is simple and straightforward:

  1. To begin, one of our providers will outline the area you want to target. Then the area is covered with a gel pad that will act as a barrier between your skin and the applicator.
  2. Your provider then applies the applicator. Most patients report a cold feeling similar to an ice pack along with some slight pressure, but after ten minutes, the area should become temporarily numb.
  3. Now’s your time to relax as the treatment takes effect. That could include reading, responding to emails, napping, or watching a show.
  4. At the end of the treatment, your provider will remove the applicator and gel pad. Your aesthetician then massages the targeted area to break up the fat cells.
  5. Now your session is done and you are free to continue your day.

Common Side Effects

While CoolSculpting Elite® is a relatively painless procedure, but some women still experience temporary side effects. Some of the most common side effects include numbness and a slight pain or pinching during the procedure that might come and go after.
These side effects are only temporary and should resolve themselves within 14 days after treatment.

With CoolSculpting Elite®, for women, another side effect can be an earlier or more painful period. This side effect may only occur when a woman has her session near or at the beginning of her menstruation. We do not recommend scheduling a session around that time of month.

While long term or serious side effects and pain are rare for CoolSculpting Elite® treatments, we want our patients to be aware of all possible outcomes. If the treated area becomes enlarged or particularly painful, contact one of our providers. Every patient is different. If any of these side effects are concerning to you, be sure to discuss them with our provider at your consultation.

CoolSculpting Elite® Results

After your treatment is completed you can see your full results within two to four months. To see your desired contour sooner, your provider will teach you how to apply daily massages to the area. To keep your results, you should maintain a healthy diet and daily exercise or it’s possible to regain new fat. It’s important to know that CoolSculpting Elite® for women is not a weight loss procedure, but rather a fat removal solution.
