Recovery Time After CoolSculpting Elite

Recovery Time After CoolSculpting Elite

Suppose you’re searching for effective ways of fat reduction and want to opt for the number one body sculpting technology available, CoolSculpting Elite. In that case, you may be curious about how long it takes to recover from a CoolSculpting treatment, and that’s understandable! We all have busy lives and can’t afford to be down and out while recovering, and that’s one of the countless reasons CoolSculpting Elite at Sculptology is amazing – there’s little to no downtime! You can likely return to your routine the same day as your treatment while your body works its magic and gets rid of those fat cells!

What is CoolSculpting Elite? 

First things first – what is CoolSculpting Elite? CoolSculpting Elite is a body contouring technology developed by a team of doctors and scientists over a decade ago that harnesses the science of fat-freezing, or cryolipolysis. Previously, it was well known that kids who ate popsicles frequently often got dimples in their cheeks, a phenomenon known as “popsicle panniculitis.” So their research found that freezing temperatures kill fat cells, leaving other body tissues such as nerve, skin, and muscle cells unharmed. The team targeted the flank (that “love handles”) in successful clinical studies and earned CoolSculpting’s first FDA clearance in 2010. Now, CoolSculpting Elite has nine clearances from the FDA, meaning nearly any part of the body can be frozen!

With the controlled application of CoolSculpting Elite equipment by Sculptology’s expertly trained professionals, the fat cells in your areas of frustration are targeted, causing those unwanted cells to freeze and crystallize, which your body will then naturally eliminate in as little as 4 weeks, causing about a 20% fat reduction! We like to think of it as *magic* but we know it’s based on science!

Recovery Time After CoolSculpting Elite

So, you know how and how well it works, but what about recovery time following a fat-freezing session? Fair question! Most of our clients are active, healthy men and women, and, understandably, no one wants a long recovery time when life is to be enjoyed! One of the best things about CoolSculpting Elite is that there’s little to no downtime! Since it’s non-invasive and non-surgical, there’s no need for anesthesia, no cutting into the skin, no needles, etc.


Here’s what you can expect when you come into Sculptology to target your stubborn areas of fat with CoolSculpting Elite. For most men and women, a CoolSculpting Elite session is like coming in for a day of pampering at the spa and we do our best to make our two beautiful locations as inviting and relaxing as possible. A session can be completed in as few as 35 minutes (that’s a lunch break!), and every client experiences different sensations.  A controlled applicator will be placed on the area you want to target, and as the applicator adheres to the body, there is a slight sucking sensation, followed by the signature cooling effect.  You may experience brief tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, or cramping; however, these sensations subside quickly as the area becomes numb. If you are treating more than one area, it will take longer, but we also have multiple applicators that can work on various body areas simultaneously. Then, your Sculptology technician will massage the treated area following the procedure to reduce any side effects and increase the fat-freezing process.

You may have mild pain or discomfort following your session, but there’s no real downtime. Some people report itching and swelling, but that can depend on what body area was treated; the most vulnerable area typically is the abdomen. Many benefit from immediate light exercise following treatment!  How COOL is that!?
