Introducing: Coolsculpting Elite


Coolsculpting Elite is the newest and most advanced non-surgical body contouring treatment on the market. This groundbreaking technology provdes faster results, quicker treatment times, and treats 18% more surface area on the body than the traditional Coolsculpting technology. The Coolsculpting Elite applicators allow for improved tissue contact, compared to the previous Coolsculpting system.

Dr. Fontaine is one of the first physicians in the San Diego and Chula Vista area to offer this treatment to his patients.

Benefits of CoolSculpting Elite

CoolSculpting Elite takes what made CoolSculpting popular and improves upon the formula to provide patients with a more advanced method of treatment. This procedure will allow you to achieve a slimmer, more toned bodily profile without the need for highly invasive surgical methods. With CoolSculpting, patients also don’t have to worry about long periods of downtime for recovery and can safely return to their normal daily activities immediately after the procedure.

Good Candidates for CoolSculpting

Good candidates for CoolSculpting are men and women who have been trying to slim down and rid their bodies of excess stubborn fat through diet and exercise, but have not seen the results they desire. It is also a useful alternative for those who desire fat reduction, but have no interest in undergoing invasive surgery.

We will perform an initial assessment of your body, discuss the results you would like to obtain, and look over your medical history to determine if CoolSculpting Elite is right for you. It is important to note that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure and is primarily designed to remove fat to improve body contour.

How Long Does CoolSculpting Elite Take to Perform?

The duration of the CoolSculpting treatment will depend on the areas of the body that need to be treated and how many areas you want to work on in a given treatment session. Depending on the body part, the treatment can be performed in as little as 35 minutes. Unlike the original CoolSculpting method, CoolSculpting Elite can treat up to 2 areas simultaneously, which allows you to get faster results faster and with less treatment sessions.

After only a single treatment, you can expect to see a fat reduction of about 20 to 25%. However, the results will depend on you and the area that is to be treated.

Frequently Asked Questions About Coolsculpting

Coolsculpting is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that freezes stubborn fat cells, allowing your body to eliminate them without the need for a surgery. The device is applied to the skin and uses special technology to protect the skin from being damaged while the fat below the skin is cooled to the point of freezing. This causes apoptosis (cell death) and then the body absorbs the fat, but there is no increase in blood lipid levels. This body contouring treatment is designed to help people who are already leading a healthy lifestyle yet can’t seem to slim down, in particular, trouble spots. Coolsculpting is FDA-cleared for treating fat in the abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, back, bra fat, upper arms, under the chin, as well as underneath the buttocks (“banana roll”).
Do you have unwanted bulges or problem areas? If so, you may be an excellent candidate. Coolsculpting is ideal for those who haven’t been able to shed unwanted fat through healthy dietary changes and exercise. Many people choose coolsculpting to reshape their body as a less-invasive alternative to liposuction. Coolsculpting is appropriate for both men and women.
Coolsculpting is done in the office without anesthesia or downtime. During treatment, you’ll rest comfortably and awake after an applicator is applied to the treatment area. You may experience a pulling sensation due to the suctioning of the applicator, but it’s generally well tolerated. The area usually goes completely numb within 10 minutes. You can relax and watch videos, work on your laptop, read, or even doze off during your treatment if you wish. Afterward, the area is massaged for a few minutes, which may cause a tingling feeling. Most people can go straight back to their usual daily activities after treatment, meaning there is no needed downtime for recovery.
After your treatment, your body naturally begins eliminating fat cells targeted by coolsculpting. Results may start to become apparent within three weeks, with the most significant results appearing after about two months. For up to six months, your body continues to flush out fat cells.
Coolsculpting body contouring results are permanent. Once fat cells are frozen by the treatment, they die and are eliminated from the body and cannot return. You can still gain weight, however, so be sure to continue your healthy lifestyle habits. If you do gain weight, you will typically gain it spread throughout your body, not localized to the treatment area.
