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.

What a wonderful place! Love coming here where I know the care and treatments are great and staff is well trained! Run don’t walk!

Love this place for many aesthetic services & dermatology. The customer service is amazing! Stef always treats me like family and does a great job! Stef has caught skin cancer early and I’m forever grateful. Jayden, the manager, is so friendly and has helped me get the best prices with Allē. Jayden even went above and beyond to help out a friend with saving money also! 5 stars!

Always enjoy going to Revive. The atmosphere and employees always make me feel welcomed and continue to produce results that make it the best med spa/clinic I've been to.

I love how much time this staff takes to answer questions. They are kind and very knowledgeable. I absolutely love working with Maria. She shows that she cares and always helps me with a smile on her face. She is just a genuinely nice gal who I trust and I know she always does her best to help me find what I need. She is not salesy and I appreciate that. I highly recommend Maria for your skincare needs.

Relaxed atmosphere with caring and hospitable staff. Procedures virtually painless with great results.

Tawnya was able to see me regarding some moles causing me concern. She removed the moles and sent them to the lab. As soon as my results were posted, she contacted me immediately with the news that everything was ok. I will be seeing her for regular checkups.

Dr Stef was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond to help our daughter out with some skin issues. I can’t recommend this place enough!

The best dermatologist & nurses around! Everyone is so welcoming, they make you feel comfortable & really listen to your concerns! Dr. Stef & her nurse went above & beyond for my needs. I love revive & highly recommend them!
