Coolsculpting ELITE in VILLANOVA

The specialists at Bryn Mawr Dermatology have been successfully freezing fat with CoolSculpting since 2017. Now, we are excited to be a purveyor of the new and improved version of this technology: CoolSculpting ELITE. It is still the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all traditional efforts like diet and exercise, but now the results are even more impressive! The technology is safer, the outcomes are experienced faster, and there are more areas we can effectively treat – so you’ll look great from every angle. In our Villanova office, Bryn Mawr Dermatology provides this effective and popular fat-freezing technology to help patients achieve their body contouring goals.

This non-invasive procedure can provide excellent results for many patients, especially those who want to treat specific problem areas of the body, without disrupting their schedule to accommodate recovery for a surgical procedure, such as liposuction. As CoolSculpting ELITE was not designed as a weight loss mechanism, ideal patients should be close to their ideal weight, lead a healthy lifestyle, and not be in the process of losing or gaining weight. Each treatment eliminates about 25% of fat in the targeted area, which is perfect for getting rid of pesky, exercise-resistant fat. Whether it’s belly fat, saddle bags, love handles or arm flab that makes getting into a swimsuit barely bearable, there is a personalized CoolSculpting ELITE treatment for you.


There are five major ways that Allergan’s newest device is superior to the already-impressive CoolSculpting Legacy model. There have been technology and design upgrades to improve the patient experience and to ensure that results are more dependable. What this translates to in the ways that really matter: slimmer, trimmer, more shapely bodies that are ready to rock and roll anytime, and in any outfit.

The CoolSculpting ELITE has two applicators versus the single applicator on the Legacy device! That’s right, a single round of treatment can now provide twice the outcome in the same amount of time. The body of the machine has become more compact and easier to maneuver, making it less cumbersome to set up and position in order to get the best approach for your treatment.

This is the third generation of applicators, and with each evolution the comfort and area of treatment has improved. These ELITE applicators have more of a C-shape to them, which more adeptly contour to the human body. This not only allows for more predictable suction and an 18% larger cooling area, but it is much more comfortable for the patient. The design also saves time because it helps to eliminate the probability of accidental detachment of the applicator during treatment.

In addition to being able to treat two areas simultaneously because of the dual applicators, the ELITE saves time simply because each cooling session has been decreased. At 35 minutes, the CoolSculptintg ELITE treatments are 22% faster than the Legacy treatments. Add the two time-saving improvements together, and you end up with almost triple the results in the same amount of time.

Not only are treatment times faster, but the results develop faster too. Patients who have ELITE treatments are starting to see results in as little as three weeks. This is 25% faster than before. But because the foundation of the technology has not changed – we are still using controlled temperatures to destroy fat cells that then need to be eliminated by your own body – the full results should not be assessed until a full three months has passed.
CoolSculpting ELITE promises a reduction in side effects, even the very rare ones. In the past, there have been rare reports of Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia (PAH) with cryolipolysis treatments. PAH is an adverse side effect during which the patient develops additional adipose tissue in the treatment area. The new ELITE technology has proven to decrease the likelihood of this side effect, and additionally ELITE treatments result in a lower frequency of short term side effects like bruising and pigmentation changes as well.

Personalized Consultations for Body Contouring

Your treatment plan begins with a personalized, one-on-one consultation with our highly trained and friendly professionals. We carefully review your medical history, current body contouring efforts, and certain areas of the body that are causing the most concern. To determine the best treatment with CoolSculpting ELITE, our team identifies the extent of fat to be minimized from the selected areas and how many sessions are required to create the desired body contours.

As CoolSculpting’s fees are based on the number of applicators needed, we can determine the cost of your body contouring treatment plan and design care based on what works best for your budget and aesthetic goals. Patients leave their consultations at our offices knowing exactly what to expect and feeling confident in their treatments.

If you have a healthy exercise routine but are having a hard time sculpting your body in certain areas, or if you’ve always had trouble with stubborn fat, CoolSculpting ELITE can be the ideal way to achieve slimmer body contours. Treatment is perfect for:

  • Double chin
  • Arm flab
  • Armpit pooch
  • Upper and lower abdomen
  • Love handles or flanks
  • Saddle bags
  • Banana rolls
  • Inner thigh
  • Knee chub

Your Coolsculpting ELITE Procedure at
Bryn Mawr Dermatology

Fat freezing with CoolSculpting ELITE technology is quick and convenient. You can relax comfortably while the applicators are placed and go to work. You will feel a cooling sensation at the treatment site, which eventually creates a mild feeling of numbness. A gentle vacuum effect is created to bring the soft tissue as close as possible to the cooling created by the applicator.

The temperature levels are precisely controlled by the CoolSculpting ELITE equipment, which is why this treatment is effective and simply applying cold packs to the skin at home does not create fat loss. Fat freezes at a higher temperature than skin, muscle and nerve tissue, and CoolSculpting ELITE is calibrated to affect fat cells only. After the applicators are removed, post-treatment massage is provided as an important part of the process. This may feel slightly uncomfortable but is generally well-tolerated.

What to Expect from your Fat Freezing Results

You can return home and to your normal routine immediately after your procedure. Some numbness and tingling may linger, but these symptoms are temporary and resolve with time. Fat cells affected by the freezing process are naturally eliminated by the body through the lymphatic system. This creates gradual results that mature over the weeks following your procedure. Patients will see final results from their CoolSculpting ELITE treatment 3 months after their treatment(s). While this seems like a long time to wait, our patients report that they love watching their results develop with time.

Coolsculpting produces smooth results and does not create lumpy or uneven skin texture, which some patients are fearful of when approaching fat removal treatment.

CoolSculpting Frequently Asked Questions

The CoolSculpting ELITE procedure is designed for people who want to eliminate fat bulges in specific areas. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution (unlike weight loss surgery, such as gastric bypass). People who choose CoolSculpting ELITE often want a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting ELITEprocedure have noticeable fat bulges in certain areas.

The frozen fat cells become crystallized, then die. The dead fat cells then are naturally processed and eliminated by your body. Some patients wonder if the results are permanent. CoolSculpting results are long term because those fat cells, and that fat bulge, are gone for good.
You may start seeing changes in your body as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment. The most dramatic results are usually visible after 3 months. Several months after your treatment, your body will still continue to flush out fat cells.

After your CoolSculpting ELITE treatment, no special supplements are required. You won’t need to change any of your lifestyle habits because it’s not a diet and exercise program. Many people do feel more motivated to take good care of themselves after a CoolSculpting ELITE treatment. They look better, they feel better, and they want to keep their reshaped body healthy.
