CoolSculpting Elite is the most advanced, most efficient CoolSculpting device on the market. Like the original CoolSculpting, it damages fat cells with freezing temperatures to eliminate areas of unwanted fat. Unlike the original CoolSculpting, CoolSculpting Elite has dual applicators, which have been optimized to treat a larger area. Because of this, CoolSculpting Elite draws in more fat before applying the freezing temperatures. As a result, CoolSculpting Elite can treat over twice as much fat in one session!

CoolSculpting Elite harnesses the same non-invasive, fat-freezing power of the original CoolSculpting device but doubles a patient’s results in the same amount of time. So, you can sit back, relax, and let the cryo energy gently get to work. After approximately 30 minutes, you will be free to resume your daily routine without any physical limitations. Over the next few weeks, you’ll notice the treated areas have lost their fatty fullness. These results will continue to improve for the next couple of months!

Why Is Certain Fat So Hard To Lose?

Let’s say you’ve recently completed a weight loss journey. At the end of this experience, one that required perseverance and patience, you look down at the scale and don’t believe the number. You’ve reached your goal weight but the mirror seems to show otherwise. You see fat linger on your abdomen, love handles, legs, arms, chest, and other places around your physique. The muscles you have spent the last few months strengthening and defining are shrouded by a blanket of fat. How did this happen? You followed the diet and exercise instructions thoroughly.

If this story sounds eerily similar to your own fat loss struggles, you aren’t alone. In fact, there are scientific reasons for this common experience. This stubborn fat lingers because:

  • There is no at-home method to spot-reduce fatty areas
  • Subcutaneous fat responds differently to changes in diet and exercise

When you exercise a muscle group, you only affect the muscle fibers – not the surrounding fat tissue. Studies have shown abdominal workouts only strengthened the patients’ muscles but didn’t affect the overlying fat tissue.[1] So, sure you have a well-defined six-pack, but it’s unfortunately masked by a sheath of subcutaneous fat.

Subcutaneous fat is special – it doesn’t respond to diet and exercise like other types of adipose tissue. As the name implies, subcutaneous fat rests between the skin and muscle. These fat cells expand or shrink when we gain weight. When they shrink, they do so only to a certain extent before stopping. This is thought to be because subcutaneous fat protects the body from heat loss, dermal infections, and external pressures. So, the body needs this barrier of fat cells to protect itself. This is why even when you dip below your target weight you’ll see fat lingering around your tummy, sides, thighs, and arms.

The Power of CoolSculpting

For decades, doctors and surgeons have used invasive body sculpting techniques like liposuction to remove unwanted fat. But these surgical procedures often come with added downtime, risk, and procedural requirements – not to mention costs. These are the problems the inventors of CoolSculpting set out to solve. Back in the 1970s, doctors found that the fat in small children’s cheeks decreased when they ate popsicles frequently. The more popsicles they ate, the more fat their cheeks lost. During this study, the doctors found that lipid-rich tissues like fat are more susceptible to injury from freezing temperatures than water-rich tissues like muscle, skin, and connective tissues.[2]

So, when CoolSculpting Elite plunges an area into freezing temperatures, the muscles, skin, and connective tissues all adjust, but the fat doesn’t. Their cell membrane can’t handle the change and break, causing the fat cell to dislodge from its connective tissue. Over the next couple of weeks and months, the body’s lymphatic tissue process the targeted fat out of the body. The treated areas gradually lose these fat cells entirely.

What Makes It Elite?

Now that we understand the science behind CoolSculpting technology, what makes CoolSculpting Elite elite? Well, a traditional CoolSculpting machine has one cryo energy applicator. This lets aestheticians treat one spot during a single session. Also, the original applicators were a tall C-shape, so they spread out a wide area but didn’t have much depth. This limited the amount of treatable fat. The CoolSculpting Elite device has not one, but two applicators that are deeper and pull in more stubborn fatty tissue. So, we can treat over twice as much fat in a single session and you can see remarkable results in half the time!

Benefits of CoolSculpting Elite

With the added, elite benefits, CoolSculpting Elite offers the same advanced advantages as the popular CoolSculpting technology!


Other body sculpting procedures require general anesthesia, which not only comes with added risks but also seriously lengthens your recovery time. Likewise, general anesthesia disqualifies many prospective patients because of the wide range of risks and adverse side effects. But since CoolSculpting Elite is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, you don’t need to worry about lengthy downtimes or arduous recoveries. After a CoolSculpting Elite session, you are simply free to resume your daily routine and watch as your unwanted fat is gradually reduced.

Proven Results

CoolSculpting has been a popular fat loss procedure for the last decade. This rise to fame is shouldered mostly by its simple yet effective method that gives patients reliably wonderful results. In one study that followed 1,445 CoolSculpting patients, researchers found that patients lost on average around 20% of their subcutaneous fat in the treated areas.[3] These results were found roughly 4 months after their initial treatment. Another study sought to measure patients’ satisfaction with their CoolSculpting results. They found that almost 90% of patients were highly satisfied with their results.[4]

Customizable Treatments

During a single CoolSculpting Elite session, we can target two of the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Chest
  • Bra strap fat
  • Pelvic area
  • Thighs
  • Lower back
  • Double chin

Who Is CoolSculpting Elite For?

If you are interested in the slimming power of CoolSculpting Elite, the first step is to schedule a personal consultation with us at one of our three offices. Then, we will check to see if you qualify for CoolSculpting Elite. Because this is a non-surgical procedure, many patients are eligible candidates! Mainly, we ask patients to be at a healthy, stable weight. This will ensure that your results continue to look wonderfully contoured for years to come.

If this is your first time at Wunderbar, we’ll learn about your recent medical history, diet and exercise habits, and desired physical results. Most patients have more than one cosmetic concern, and Wunderbar offers a wide range of med spa procedures to help you look and feel your best from head to toe. Once we have determined which procedures are best for you and for achieving your ideal aesthetic, we will construct your personalized treatment plan. This treatment plan will include any specific preparation and recovery instruction as well as a timeline on when to expect results, and how many CoolSculpting Elite sessions may be required.

Other Non-Surgical Body Sculpting Procedures

At Wunderbar, we pride ourselves on offering the most advanced and efficient aesthetic services. These include innovative devices and aesthetic procedures that help us give patients a younger appearance, slimmer contours, and a brighter glow. One procedure that enhances the effects of CoolSculpting is EMSCULPT.


EMSCULPT is a wearable device that sends high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) waves directly to the underlying muscle fibers. These waves stimulate the neurons in the muscles, causing the muscles to flex and contract. In one 30-minute session, muscles contract 20,000 times! EMSCULPT helps define hard-to-tone muscles like the abdomen and around the butt. After just one session, patients in one study saw a 15% increase in muscle fiber thickness.[6]
