What Is CoolSculpting?
Say Goodbye to Stubborn Fat!
It’s called stubborn fat for a reason: no matter how much you eat healthy and exercise, it’s virtually impossible to lose those annoying muffin tops, love handles, and belly pooch. You’re left with two options: live with them or think surgery. Neither is cool by us here at Rita Medical Elite. That is why now we have an treatment for you! Only CoolSculpting® targets fat cells alone, eliminating them in an easy, non-intrusive fashion that exercise and diet can’t achieve as quickly or as effectively.
We are so excited to now offer Coolsculpting at Rita Medical Elite. At our practice we are committed to offer our clients the best and newest technologies to achieve maximum results. The new CoolAdvantage applicators not only work faster, they also render better results than the old applicators. More importantly, they are more comfortable and cause less bruising. Typically, treatments using the old CoolSculpting applicators took about an hour. With the new CoolAdvantage applicators, treatments take only 35 minutes.

How Much Does The CoolSculpting Procedure Cost?
The price for CoolSculpting® procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. We can help you customized a treatment plan, that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
Where Does The Fat Go? Are The Results Permanent?
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), they die and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
What Does CoolSculpting Feel Like?
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.
Is The CoolSculpting Procedure Safe?
The CoolSculpting® procedure is FDA-cleared. With over 1.5 million CoolSculpting® treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.
Are There Any Side Effects?
During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Rare side effects may also occur.
Can I Return To Normal Activities After My Treatment?
Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting® procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting® session is over.
When Will I See Results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after 3-4 months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
Do I Need To Take Special Supplements Or Follow A Strict Diet And Exercise Program?
No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting® treatment. It is as if they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.
What Happens If I Gain Weight Down The Road?
Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting® procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.
