Freeze away stubborn fat with no downtime. With Quadsculpting, treat 4 areas at the same time.
Coolsculpting Elite offers a non-surgical, natural approach to “sculpt” the areas of your body that are resistant to diet and exercise or to debulk areas of resistant fat.
It can be used to treat:
- Inner & outer thighs (saddlebags)
- Flanks (muffin top)
- Upper arms
- Double chin
What to Expect
Your provider will start by talking with you to customize your treatment plan. We will then take photos, and your weight in order to track your progress. We recommend 2 treatments per area for best results.
Once our providers have applied the treatment applicators, they will adjust pillows and make you as comfortable as possible. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.
Once you are done, your provider will massage the treated area. Studies show that massage after the treatment helps to optimize results. You may feel tenderness and numbness in the treated area for 1-2 weeks. In 2-3 days after treatment you may feel some itching that is a sign of the fat cell destruction. You may resume normal daily activity immediately after your treatment.
Before & After
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting® safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die through a natural process, leaving surrounding tissues unaffected. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you. Patients often return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.
How long will my appointment take?
Each Coolsculpting cycle takes between 35-75 minutes depending on what area we are treating. Your provider will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting session will depend on how many areas we are treating.
We are fortunate to offer Dualsculpting & Quadsculpting so we can treat two or four areas at the same time, so you can get back to your life more quickly.
What is the difference between CoolSculpting and CoolSculpting Elite?
CoolSculpting is the original, cutting-edge technology for freezing away unwanted fat. While we loved our original CoolSculpting technology and have offered it here at the office for many years, we were thrilled to learn about the new ELITE technology. Mona Dermatology was the first office to offer the new CoolSculpting Elite beginning on February 1, 2021.
What are the differences between traditional CoolSculpting & CoolSculpting Elite?
- In clinical trials, the Elite had a 96.6% rating for skin contact as compared to only 65.7% for the older technology. This is an incredible 30.9% improvement!
- Better skin contact is achieved through a redesigned applicator, which is geometrically designed to better fit patients’ natural curves. This results in a more secure fit & improved tissue contact, which in turn creates better results for YOU!
- In addition, while we previously were able to “Dualsculpt” (meaning treat two areas of the body at the same time), this new technology has given us the opportunity to “Quadsculpt” (meaning that we can treat up to 4 areas of the body at the same time).
In summary, Coolsculpting Elite is a newer and more effective version of the traditional Coolsculpting treatment. We are dedicated to always bringing you the latest advancements on the market, and know that you will love this new fat-freezing technology!
Does CoolSculpting hurt?
After the initial cooling sensation, you will not feel anything until the treatment is done. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.
During the massage after your treatment, sensation will start to return to the area.
Is CoolSculpting safe?
Yes, Coolsculpting is FDA-approved and safe when performed by our trained provider.
Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, itching, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, and mild discomfort.
You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. As with any medical procedure, ask your provider if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
Am I a candidate?
CoolSculpting is specially designed for those who have unwanted fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however, a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Good candidates have unwanted pockets of fat that they would like to sculpt and smooth.
When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as 4 weeks after your treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after 2-3 months. Your body will continue to flush out fat cells for up to four to six months after your treatment.
Are there any side effects?
Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, itching, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, and mild discomfort. In very rare cases, some patients have developed paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH). The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. As with any medical procedure, ask your provider if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
Is there downtime?
The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.
How much does CoolSculpting cost?
The cost for Coolsculpting Cincinnati will depend on how many cycles you and your provider decide on.
We will work with you to determine the best treatment plan.
