CoolSculpting Elite vs ‘Normal’ CoolSculpting

We all know about the power of CoolSculpting and what it can do for the body. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive body sculpting treatment that freezes fat cells while they are still inside the body and naturally eliminates them over the course of 12 weeks. There’s no denying that the technology of CoolSculpting is incredible.

With advances in aesthetic devices always evolving, CoolSculpting quickly upgraded to the CoolSculpting Elite device. While the machines are the same, the technology and applicators differ. So, what’s the difference between the original CoolSculpting and the Elite, and what makes the Elite better?

Facts About the ‘Normal’ CoolSculpting

The original CoolSculpting device contains U-shaped applicators that fit the area of the body that is being treated. The original CoolSculpting device contains just one, singular handpiece applicator which, while still effective, can only treat one area of the body at a time and will need to be moved between cycles to cover the full treatment area. 

This, unfortunately, can cause the treatment to take longer. The U-shaped applicator provides less suction and cooling power which, in turn, averages about 18-20% fat reduction for most patients.

Facts About the CoolSculpting Elite

The CoolSculpting Elite is simply the super-charged version of the original CoolSculpting machine. It’s the same device, just amped up with some updates! 

The CoolSculpting Elite contains two handpieces, unlike the original’s one handpiece so it is able to cover way more ground than the original machine. The Elite’s handpieces are also upgraded to a “C” shape instead of a “U” which allows the applicator to better fit the body’s natural curves. The Elite applicators also provide more suction and cooling power, also due to the new shape, which ultimately allows it to result in a 20-25% fat reduction in most patients! 

Why Choose CoolSculpting Elite? 

Many patients who have received treatment with both the original CoolSculpting machine as well as the Elite have reported that the Elite provides a more comfortable experience than the original machine. While both machines have garnered great results for a number of patients, most people would favor the CoolSculpting Elite over the original machine because the advances in the technology make for a better overall experience as well as better results.
