When the CoolSculpting or Cryolypolisis treatment was cleared by the FDA in 2010 to freeze and destroy unwanted fat cells, it became the state-of-the-art non-surgical treatment for fat reduction. Now, after 10 years of continuous innovation and research, CoolSculpting has an improved and updated device called CoolSculpting Elite, which has several advantages over the first version.

What is CoolSculpting Elite?
CoolSculpting Elite is the new and improved version of CoolSculpting, launched in 2021. It provides all the benefits of traditional CoolSculpting, plus a few more. The following attributes have not changed:
- Freezes fat through cryolipolysis.
- Non-surgical and non-invasive treatment.
- No downtime required.
5 improvements you get with Coolsculpting Elite
More Fat Reduction
CoolSculpt Elite targets, freezes and removes 20-25% of fat in a single treatment, as opposed to the traditional version, which removed 18-20% of fat at each visit, requiring even more visits to our Spa in Chicago.
While the Legacy or traditional model had only one applicator, Elite has two. This means that the amount of machinery deployed for a treatment is reduced. In addition, Elite applicators are no longer U-shaped, but C-shaped, and are available in 7 different shapes and sizes. This new and improved design better conforms to the body’s natural curves. CoolSculpting Elite’s advanced applicators make treatments more comfortable and effective.
CoolSculpting Elite contacts the body more effectively, as Elite applicators cover up to 18% more skin surface area than traditional CoolSculpting. This means that larger areas can be treated in less time (shorter treatment sessions and fewer treatments).

Much more comfortable
The improvements made to the CoolSculpting machine make the treatment quieter and more precise. CoolSculpting can be felt as a slight pinch or tug until the area is numbed. Advanced freezing technology reduces discomfort by freezing the treatment area faster. This not only reduces physical discomfort that can lead to irritation, but also makes sessions more relaxing.
