Let’s dive into the subject and dispel the five most common myths about CoolSculpting® Elite together!

Helping you rediscover your confidence

Myth #1: CoolSculpting® Elite Is Painful

Although pain and beauty sometimes go hand in hand, such an approach doesn’t apply to CoolSculpting® Elite. In most cases, patients report only mild discomfort when the applicator sucks in the treatment area and begins the cryolipolysis process. However, after this initial process, the treatment area becomes numb, and the discomfort vanishes! Instead of worrying about more-than-tolerable pain levels, you can take the procedure time to relax and enjoy the peaceful feeling. Don’t be surprised if you gently fall asleep during the procedure.

After the procedure itself, a feeling of light tenderness or soreness, accompanied by mild bruising or swelling, could affect the treatment area, although it will not last for more than a few days. Instead, prepare yourself to be amazed by CoolSculpting® Elite’s astounding results! 

Myth #2: CoolSculpting® Elite Results Await Outside the Procedure Room

Long-lasting results take time, and CoolSculpting® Elite is no stranger to this rule. Following in the footsteps of its predecessor, CoolSculpting® Legacy, the new device uses fat-freezing (cryolipolysis) technology to destroy unwanted fatty tissue and cause it to be removed by the body naturally. Inherently, this process doesn’t happen overnight, as the body cannot dispose of the tissue right away. 

Is there any downside to this approach? Not at all! Instead of noticing your body contouring results right away, you will actually have the chance to see for yourself the CoolSculpting® Elite results constantly delivered over the next few months. You will experience the joy of having undergone this procedure over an extended time as you notice further improvements daily!

Myth #3: CoolSculpting® Elite Is a Weight Control Miracle Worker

Unfortunately, such beliefs apply not just to CoolSculpting® Elite but also other body contouring procedures. On the contrary, CoolSculpting® Elite works its magic only if you’re close to your ideal body weight but are unable to kick the few extra pounds out of commission. As such, you have to be in great shape if you want CoolSculpting® Elite to pay off.

Before committing to CoolSculpting® Elite, you should ask yourself, “What’s the main reason behind my CoolSculpting® Elite choice?” If you’re going for an enhanced silhouette, then CoolSculpting® Elite is your go-to treatment. If weight loss comes to mind, then CoolSculpting® Elite will not be the right choice.

Myth #4: CoolSculpting® Elite Is Limited to the Abdominal Area

The device that sits at the top of the body contouring market cannot be limited to just one treatment area. And that’s the case for CoolSculpting® Elite, which provides stunning results on many different body areas without taking the abdomen into account, such as:

  • Submental (under the chin)
  • Chest area
  • Arms
  • “Love handles” (i.e., the sides of the waist)
  • Bra rolls
  • “Banana roll” fatty tissue (under the buttocks)
  • Inner and outer thighs

It is unfortunate how some potential patients limit the wonders of CoolSculpting® Elite to the abdominal area without considering this device’s versatility. Make sure that you discuss the potential treatment areas with Dr. Vinyard during your complimentary consultation. You never know how CoolSculpting® Elite can bring your body contour to the next level!


Myth #5: CoolSculpting® Elite Is a Superior Skin Tightening Solution

Although it provides astounding body contouring results, CoolSculpting® Elite has its limitations. For example, this device is ineffective in addressing sagging skin tissue, mainly because CoolSculpting® Elite addresses the unwanted fatty tissue while leaving the skin intact. On the contrary, patients with superior skin elasticity will have the most to gain from CoolSculpting® Elite. If skin tightening is on your mind, then you should consider the nonsurgical approach brought by the Morpheus8 radiofrequency (RF) microneedling!
