Coolsculpting ELITE in Weston | Fort Lauderdale


CoolSculpting ELITE is Allergan’s newest advancement in permanent fat removal. For over 10 years, CoolScupting continues to be the gold standard for non-surgical fat removal and body contouring. This technology has been upgraded to CoolSculpting ELITE, a newer device to improve patient comfort, convenience, and results.


Not all CoolSculpting treatments are equal. Achieving the best results is very dependent on having an experienced, knowledgeable practitioner, along with the most up to date technology. Our CoolSculpting Center is one of the busiest centers in the country, where we treat multiple patients every day. We are proud to be the first center in the West Broward area, and have been performing treatments since 2012.


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.

CoolSculpting is the coolest, most innovative, non-surgical way to lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat. This revolutionary technology targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges. Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Patients often spend procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing.

It’s safe, FDA-cleared and effective. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months.


Developed by Harvard scientists, CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared, patented procedure that uses a targeted cooling process that kills the fat cells underneath the skin. This freezes the fat cells to the point of elimination. Only fat cells are frozen, and your healthy cells are not affected. The great thing about CoolSculpting is that there are no knives, no suction hoses, no needles, and no scars. Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from your body. There is no pain involved in this procedure. In a few months, boom: say hello to a new you.



Unlike a lot of other procedures, CoolSculpting takes very little time and is pretty simple to fit into your daily life. After your CoolSculpting treatment you can typically get right back to your busy day. Each treatment lasts one hour – the same time you might spend at the gym. So you can easily fit your appointment into a lunch break.

After one treatment, you’ll typically see a noticeable reduction of fat. It takes a few months to fully realize the effects, mainly because it takes that long for your body to naturally dispose of the fat cells. On average, each CoolSculpting™ procedure results in a 20% reduction of fat in the treated area. And yes, you can lose even more with additional appointments if you and your doctor deem it necessary.

So after a few months, your clothes will fit better and you will look better. What’s more, there are no pills or supplements. And as long as you maintain your normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable.


FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

How many treatments do I need?

Many patients are satisfied after one treatment. However, during your consultation, we can discuss a treatment plan that will meet your specific treatment needs.

What happens during the treatment?

To initiate the treatment we will position the device on your body. The device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you’re done.

Can I return to normal activities after the procedure?

CoolSculpting 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 the 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 one to three months. Your body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.

Are the results permanent?

During CoolSculpting, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, long-term results should remain stable.

How does CoolSculpting compare to other similar devices?

The controlled cooling of the Zeltiq Procedure targets and eliminates only fat cells. Other treatment modalities such as lasers, radiofrequency, and focused ultrasound affect fat cells and may affect other adjacent tissue in a way that is not comparable to the Zeltiq method of cryolipolysis.

How much does CoolSculpting cost?

An individualized treatment plan will be developed during your complimentary consultation. Cost will vary from patient to patient depending on the number of treatments, areas to be treated, and your ultimate goals.
