What is CoolSculpting® Elite?
CoolSculpting® Elite is the newest technology available from CoolSculpting®. With hundreds of thousands of CoolSculpting® procedures performed in the world in the past 10 years, CoolSculpting® Elite promises to improve on the great reputation and results of the previous two generations. Also known as “fat freezing,” CoolSculpting® Elite is a non-surgical procedure that uses cooling technology to reduce excess fat deposits that haven’t responded to diet and exercise. Using the science of cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting® helps crystallize your fat cells for elimination by your body.
Researchers discovered this science in the most unexpected of ways. After noticing that children who ate popsicles and other frozen treats developed dimples in their cheeks, two Harvard scientists realized the cold temperatures were freezing pockets of fat in the face. The eventual result of this research was CoolSculpting®. As technology around cryolipolysis advances, we now have the third generation of CoolSculpting® available called CoolSculpting® Elite. The Elite machine is faster, more efficient, and more comfortable than the previous versions and improves on results also, with a proven 25% reduction in the treated fat pads with each cycle.
Men most commonly use CoolSculpting® Elite to target fat of their abdomen, back, flanks, and double chin, but it can also be used on thighs, and arms.
CoolSculpting® Elite is a non-invasive procedure performed in our Reno offices and takes about 35-45 minutes for each targeted area to complete.
Before the procedure, the team at Janiga MDs works with patients to map out the areas where CoolSculpting® Elite would be most beneficial for you. The third-generation vacuum applicator is then applied to deliver controlled cooling for approximately 35 to 45 minutes. Often, patients can relax, choose to read, or check emails during their procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions
How can I see my results faster?
Results from CoolSculpting are seen as quickly as 3 weeks but full results often take up to 3 months. There is not a way to make this happen faster as it takes time for your body to break down the fat cells and dispose of them. If you have a time sensitive event then you should plan your CoolSculpting treatments to be completed 60-90 days prior to that event to see your full result.
Is it normal to itch after treatment?
Itching is one of the side effects that can occur for a few days to a week after treatment. Don’t be alarmed – this is a normal occurrence. If itching or redness persists beyond a couple of weeks, consult with your treatment provider.
How much water should I drink after my procedure?
A good baseline for men is to drink between 8-10 eight ounce glasses of water per day, but if you’re physically active or regularly consume caffeinated drinks like soda or coffee, you should plan to drink at least one glass of water for every caffeinated beverage you have in addition to the normal 8-10.
What areas should I use CoolSculpting on?
For men, CoolSculpting is usually performed on the torso – the chest, abdomen, and back. It can, however, also be used on arms and thighs, and has now been cleared by the FDA to use under the chin which is a very popular area for men to sculpt the jawline.
Can I consume alcohol after treatment?
You’re welcome to have a glass of wine or beer within 24 hours following your procedure, but we do advise that you keep it to a minimum for the 3 days following treatment.
