CoolSculpting® vs. CoolSculpting Elite: What’s the Difference?

Women with different body types considering CoolSculpting in Ankeny, IA

One of the world’s most popular body contouring treatments just got a makeover. Better results, faster treatment times, and even more fat reduction sans surgery—that’s what you can expect from CoolSculpting Elite at our Ankeny, IA, dermatology clinic and spa.

We take CoolSculpting seriously at Revive: We’re home to Central Iowa’s only CoolSculpting Masters, plus 2 CoolSculpting University-trained technicians. That’s why we couldn’t wait to introduce our clients to the latest advancement in body contouring that delivers better results than ever.

Read on to learn more about 4 ways Elite takes CoolSculpting to a whole new level.

Elite’s Applicators Are an Even Better Fit

Elite’s applicators are C-shaped instead of U-shaped to better fit your body’s natural curves. They come in 7 different shapes and sizes to comfortably attach to as many areas of the body as possible. Plus, a better fit means more efficient freezing, which delivers even more dramatic results.

You’ll Need Fewer Treatments To See the Same Results

Unlike previous devices that could only treat a single area at a time, Elite can target 2 different areas at once—a technique known as DualSculpting. With double the treatment ability, you can treat both sides of your body at the same time. This means you can slim both of your hips, thighs, flanks, or more in half the time and number of sessions it would typically take.

Elite Removes Even More Fat

Elite covers 18% more surface area than the legacy treatment. Combine that coverage with more effective freezing, and you’ll enjoy 30% more overall fat reduction than with Elite’s predecessor.

You can expect to see a 20 to 25% total fat reduction in whichever of the 9 treatment areas you choose to target:

  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Upper arms
  • Thighs
  • Under the chin (“double chin”)
  • Flanks
  • Bra bulge
  • Under the buttocks
  • Above the knees

Keep in mind that, like traditional CoolSculpting, Elite is not intended to be a weight loss solution. If you’re looking to notably reduce fat across your body, you may be a better candidate for our medically guided Transform weight loss program.

It’s Even More Comfortable

While legacy CoolSculpting treatments were already known for being comfortable and easy to undergo, Elite takes that comfort to a whole new level. Because the applicators are designed to fit the body better, you’ll feel less of the squeezing or pulling that used to occur as the device is attached to the treatment area. Faster freezing times numb your targeted area faster to minimize the amount of cooling you feel at the start of your treatment.

Elite Delivers Better Results Without More Downtime

Just like traditional CoolSculpting treatments, Elite is minimally invasive and involves little to no recovery time. You’ll still be able to return to work, the gym, and the rest of your routine right away so you can look your best without missing a beat.

Thank you so much for your kind review! We can't wait to see you again!

My fiancé and I are new to the Ankeny Iowa area and I needed to see a dermatologist. First and foremost, it is a fantastic environment. Not cluttered, clean, professional and polite. I saw Nikki Roetman the first visit. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Very well versed outside of normal dermatology. The second visit I was blessed with the help of Dr Stef Gatica, she was very fun to work with. We were able to joke and have a good laugh. With the help of Aubrey I have had nothing but pleasant professional visits. Highly recommended to go hear and get taken care of the right way

Business Owner replied on Feb 9, 2022:

Thank you very much! It was a pleasure meeting both of you!

I saw Nikki at the clinic and she was so thorough and sweet! She makes you feel comfortable and goes over everything with you in detail. Highly recommend!

Hi, Megan. Thanks for taking the time to share your positive experience. We truly appreciate it!

I’m an NP that recently did a Botox training with Dr. Stef. She is very knowledgeable and skilled-an excellent resource for all things skin! I learned so much. I appreciated the 1:1 training. The day was fast paced which allowed for several opportunities for me to inject but also personalized enough for me to gain the skills to inject independently. I highly recommend.

Business Owner replied on Feb 18, 2022:

Thank you Katie! I had a lot of fun with you and you did a great job! Can't wait to watch you grow in your skills!

Thank you Dr Stef for coming to our office to share your wealth of knowledge and skills. Your years of experience and technique methods that you offered during our training was amazing.

Thank you Melanie! It was so nice to meet all of you!

I had such a great day training with Stephanie on jawline and chin filler. It was my first time using cannula’s as well and she did an amazing job teaching and training. What a fun Friday

Thank you Lizzie! You have been a lot of fun to work with! - Dr. Stef

A friend with glowing skin recommended me to Revive to see skincare specialist Stephenie Ganske. I went in for my consultation, and began my skincare prescription. Within days my skin was already beginning to glow! Friends and family were commenting on my skin, asking me if I had on makeup ( I did not) what I was using! I coined the term "GanskeGlow" to describe my results. Stephenie is a guru, and I can not thank her enough for my renewed skin and of course that "GanskeGlow" 😉

Business Owner replied on Feb 18, 2022:

Vivette, thank you for your kind words! We love the term "GanskeGlow" that you came up with! Can't wait to see you soon!

I had a great experience at Revive! Dr Stef is very thorough and so easy to talk to about your skin health concerns. I am a permanent clinical Dermatology patient for sure!

Business Owner replied on Feb 18, 2022:
