Coolsculpting Elite in Millburn, NJ
At Millburn Laser Center, our board-certified dermatologists are experts in the latest body contouring techniques.

We offer Coolsculpting Elite body contouring at our medical clinic because it’s the perfect choice for our patients who want to reduce fat
without downtime. While CoolSculpting Elite’s predecessor can remove about 18-20% of targeted fat cells, Elite applicators have the ability to eliminate 20-25% in a single session.
What is Coolsculpting Elite?
Coolsculpting Elite, scientifically known as cryolipolysis, is an FDA-approved fat-freezing treatment that safely and effectively eliminates fat.
The technology utilizes non-invasive cooling to target and freeze fat cells, which the body will naturally eliminate. Coolsculpting Elite is able to target stubborn problem areas that do not respond to diet and exercise.

What Areas Can Be Treated?
Overall, if you can squeeze it, we can freeze it. A Coolsculpting Elite fat freezing treatment can be performed on the following areas:
- Flanks (love handles)
- Inner and outer thighs
- Bra roll
- Lower buttocks (banana roll)
How Does Coolsculpting Elite Work?
CoolSculpting Elite works by “freezing” fat cells or bringing them to a lower temperature than they can live through.
Fat is more sensitive to cold than other parts of the body, making stubborn fat deposits the perfect target for the CoolSculpting Elite fat freezing technique.
This process is precise and leaves surrounding tissues and cells unharmed while freezing underlying fat. Your body then naturally eliminates the frozen fat through the liver, gradually shrinking the treated area over the course of 4-6 months.
What to Expect During
Coolsculpting Elite is a simple in-office fat reduction treatment that the board-certified dermatologists at our medical clinic can perform in 25-60 minutes without anesthesia.
Depending on the treatment area, you will either be seated on a reclining chair or lying on your stomach. Your doctors will apply a cool gel pad, then an applicator that resembles a vacuum hose will use a suction technique on the target area.
You may feel uncomfortable from the cold during treatment, but this sensation should last around just 10 minutes, at which point the area should be numb.
The carefully regulated cooling plates will bring fat cells down to a temperature where they are permanently damaged without harming other cells. After using the applicator, your dermatologist will massage the area in order to encourage the breakdown of dead fat cells.
Over a period of 3 weeks, you will begin to notice your results as your body flushes away the damaged fat cells, which will continue for 4-6 months.
Right after your body contouring treatment, you may experience some temporary side effects. These are normal but vary in intensity depending on the person:
- Firmness or stiffness, tenderness, cramping or muscle spasms, and aching in the treated area
- Redness or whiteness, bruising, swelling, and numbness at the application site
- Skin sensitivity, itching, tingling, stinging, and numbness
These are temporary, but if you are experiencing extreme discomfort, please contact our office so we can help.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is Coolsculpting Elite Safe?
A: Yes. Coolsculpting is an FDA-approved procedure for use on the abdomen, flanks, arms, and inner and outer thighs. With millions of treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for fat reduction.
Q: What Does it Feel Like?
A: During the first few minutes of treatment, you will feel pressure (tugging/pulling) and coldness on the target area. The sensation will dissipate within10 minutes as the area becomes numb. You will feel comfortable enough to read, work on your laptop, watch videos, or even take a nap during the procedure.
Q: Where Does the Fat Go?
A: Once the fat cells are frozen, your body will naturally process and eliminate them as dead cells. Once gone, these fat cells will not regrow, cannot be replaced by other cells in the same area and will not move and settle in other parts of the body. In other words, they are permanently gone.
Q: Is There Downtime?
A: Since Coolsculpting Elite is a non-invasive procedure, you can return to work or your normal functions immediately. No recovery period or pain medications are necessary.
Q: Are There Side Effects?
A: Side effects typically include redness, swelling, stinging, tenderness, and bruising of the treatment site or sites. These effects are only temporary and will subside in a few hours or days after your procedure.
Q: When Will I See Results?
A: You may start to notice the desired changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment at Millburn Laser Center. The most dramatic results will be seen after two months. Your body will continue to process and flush out dead fat cells for up to 4-6 months after treatment.
Q: How Many Treatments Will I Need?
A: While you will already see up to a 20-25% fat reduction on the treated area/s after one treatment, the recommended number of cups will depend on your aesthetic goals and your specific circumstances (ex. if there are thicker layers of fat in your target areas). For some patients, two treatments are enough but other patients may need more treatment sessions for optimal results.
Q: Am I A Good Candidate For Coolsculpting?
A: Coolsculpting Elite is a sculpting or shaping program. It is not intended for weight loss. The best candidates are those who are generally fit and within 30 lbs of their ideal body weight. The treatment is ideal for targeting areas where fat has become resistant to diet and exercise. For those who want to avoid undergoing invasive and painful fat-reducing procedures or being administered with anesthesia, Coolsculpting Elite is an excellent option as well as an effective alternative to liposuction.
With a patient satisfaction rate of 73%, — higher than other technologies used for non-invasive lipolysis — Coolsculpting Elite is the leader in non-surgical fat reduction.
