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.

I’ve been going to Revive for several years. I’ve always had a great experience with everyone from the front desk staff to the dermatologists to the estheticians. The VIP program is amazing! Highly recommended!

Thank you so much Alyssa! We appreciate the review!

Revive is the best dermatology clinic I have ever been to! After suffering from trial and error at the last clinic I went to, I was very hesitant to go to Revive. Right away, everyone was so caring and accommodating. I have never received such amazing service from any clinic I have been to, but Revive is leaps and bounds greater than your ordinary dermatology clinic. I received the hydra-facial from Maria, and I did not want to leave! The experience was amazing and the service was outstanding. The facial itself was incredibly relaxing and Maria walked me through the steps in the facial process since I had never received one before. Carissa at the front was so friendly and welcoming as well. I was seen right away and felt like everyone truly cared about my overall experience at the clinic. I would recommend Revive to anyone who is looking for dermatology services! I will be back!

I called several dermatology clinics and was unable to see anyone soon. Revive was able to do a Tele health visit the same day with me! Tawnya was kind and knowledgeable. I would recommend this clinic and return if needed!

Thank you Elizabeth! Tawnya is fantastic and we are glad you found us!
