When it comes to getting a slimmer, more toned figure, sometimes diet and exercise don’t produce the shape you’re striving for. If you’ve been following a healthy diet and strict workout routine without seeing the contoured results you want, a non-invasive body contouring treatment could be the solution.

CoolSculpting Elite is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses advanced cooling technology to freeze away fat cells, helping create a more toned appearance. This procedure covers up to 18% more skin surface area than traditional CoolSculpting, meaning it can target more fat cells in the same treatment duration. The Elite device can be applied to various areas of the body, like the legs, arms, flanks, and stomach. 

Please note, CoolSculpting Elite is not a weight-loss procedure but rather a fat removal procedure. Aesthetic Surgery and Dermatology in Cherry Creek provides CoolSculpting Elite treatment to patients throughout surrounding cities, including Denver. Read on to learn more about everything CoolSculpting Elite entails.

What Is Non-Invasive Body Contouring?

Non-invasive body contouring procedures are non-surgical cosmetic treatments that use innovative technology to remove body fat. These procedures are safe and straightforward, getting rid of unwanted body fat in an outpatient setting. 

Non-invasive body contouring procedures typically require several brief sessions to produce significant results, helping the patient tone up and eliminate fat without going under the knife.

CoolSculpting Elite

CoolSculpting Elite is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses specialized applicators to freeze your body’s fat cells in a process called “cryolipolysis.” This can effectively destroy fat cells in specific problem areas and reveal the muscle underneath. 

When the body’s fat cells are frozen and destroyed through CoolSculpting, it can leave you with a slimmer, more sculpted shape. In fact, this advanced cooling technique has been shown to eliminate as much as 25% of the unwanted fat in a particular treatment area.

The Benefits of CoolSculpting Elite 

The CoolSculpting Elite procedure comes with several health and wellness benefits for patients. This includes the following great advantages:

  • Freezing and destroying fat cells
  • Revealing underlying muscle tone
  • Creating a slimmer appearance
  • Removing excess fat in the midsection
  • Creating thinner arms and thighs
  • Reducing overall body fat by about 25%

A major benefit of CoolSculpting Elite treatment is that it is a non-invasive, outpatient procedure. There is no need for anesthetics to have this procedure performed. CoolSculpting involves no recovery or downtime.

Who Is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting Elite Treatment?

CoolSculpting Elite treatment is not intended for every patient struggling to get in better shape. This technology encourages fat loss and enhances your figure. It does not remove excessive amounts of weight. 

The ideal candidate for CoolSculpting Elite is a patient who is within range of their ideal body weight and looking to improve muscle tone in areas like the back, butt, stomach, thighs, or arms. Patients who are significantly over their BMI (body mass index) may benefit from weight loss procedures instead. Speak to our medical expert, go over your medical history, and ask them questions about the procedure.

A consultation with our cosmetic medical expert can determine whether you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting Elite treatment. If not, you will be advised on other procedures.

The CoolSculpting Elite Process

The CoolSculpting Elite treatment is a simple procedure that is quick and relaxing for the patient from beginning to end. Learn more about the entire CoolSculpting procedure below.


Before scheduling your first CoolSculpting Elite session, you will need to have a consultation with one of our medical experts to determine whether this is the best treatment for you. Every patient is different and has unique needs. Our medical expert will assess your anatomy and decide whether CoolSculpting is the best way to achieve your desired results.


CoolSculpting Elite treatment requires little to no preparation. Patients should be well-hydrated in the days leading up to their session, as the procedure is most effective when cells are adequately hydrated. The day of your session, wearing loose, comfortable clothing is recommended but not required.


During your CoolSculpting Elite session, you will be able to sit or lie comfortably while dual applicators are applied to your predetermined treatment areas. For most patients, this is some combination of the back, butt, abdomen, upper arms, and thighs. 

These specialized applicators will then deliver intense cooling energy directly into your fat cells, effectively freezing and destroying them. Patients report feeling a cool sensation on their skin while the CoolSculpting device is in use, but no discomfort. The entire process can take anywhere from 20 minutes to one hour, depending on the areas being treated.

Recovery and Results

A major benefit of CoolSculpting Elite is that there is no recovery or downtime involved. This outpatient procedure allows you to return home immediately after your session is finished. You may need to return for several sessions spaced a few weeks apart to see optimal results. 

Once this initial treatment plan is complete, you will begin to see unwanted fat disappear from your problem areas, revealing underlying muscle and trimming your figure.
