CoolSculpting Elite® FAQs
The CoolSculpting Elite fat-reduction procedure is designed for those who have unwanted fat. Unlike weight-loss surgery (e.g., gastric bypass), CoolSculpting Elite is not a weight-loss solution for those living with obesity. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting Elite procedure have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. Many people want a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
The price for CoolSculpting Elite varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of treatments needed, and your ultimate goals. Most patients opt to receive treatments in multiple body areas in order to achieve their goals. The cost typically ranges between $2,000-$4,000 for personalized treatment plans.

In the U.S., CoolSculpting Elite is FDA-cleared to treat visible fat bulges on the neck area, thigh, abdomen, bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), and upper arm.
Yes! The CoolSculpting Elite procedure can treat visible fat bulges under the chin (submental) and jawline (submandibular). Freezing away fat from a double chin is as easy and painless as using the CoolSculpting Elite procedure in other parts of the body (e.g., abdomen, flank/side, thighs). It is FDA-approved to affect the appearance of lax tissue with submental area treatments. With CoolSculpting Elite treatment for a double chin, patients see results after just 1 to 2 visits. All that with no surgery, and little to no downtime!
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. So yes, the fat removed from CoolSulpting is permanent!
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you'll feel an intense, but tolerable coldness. This only lasts a couple of minutes! With some applicators, you’ll feel some pulling as suction is applied. The area generally goes numb within 5 to 10 minutes during treatment. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their CoolSculpting Elite treatment!
After the treatment, you may feel some tingling as the area is massaged for 2 or 3 minutes. Patients are usually able to return to normal activities following their appointment.
