CoolSculpting® Elite Treatments at Artemedica
Inspire Transformations with CoolSculpting® Elite
Artemedica is excited to be one of the first practices in the Bay Area to offer the new CoolSculpting® Elite body contouring system!
CoolSculpting® Elite is the latest addition to the Allergan portfolio of body contouring products. A CoolSculpting® procedure delivers deliberate cooling that is both safe and precise to target fat cells found just beneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen) and destroyed without causing any damage to the surrounding skin or tissue. As the fat cells gradually die off, they are removed by your body’s own natural elimination process and do not return, leaving behind a slimmer more sculpted you.
The CoolSculpting® Elite device has been cleared by the FDA to treat nine stubborn problem areas, including thighs, buttocks, arms, back, and under the chin. The system has been redesigned with new applicators and the ability to target two areas of fat at once.
How CoolSculpting® Elite Works
One of the biggest changes we see with the new CoolSculpting® Elite system is the applicator collection, which includes seven different shapes and sizes, plus the ability to treat more than one area at a time.
After crafting your CoolSculpting treatment plan with an expert at Artemedica, you will be ready for your first non-invasive treatment.
During a CoolSculpting Elite treatment session, one of seven applicators will be applied directly above the targeted area.
The innovative new C-shaped applicators are designed to complement the body’s natural curves for improved fit and comfort during initial tissue draw. They feature up to an 18% larger cooling area as compared to the previous generation CoolSculpting applicators. This means you can treat more stubborn fat in less time!
