You may have exercised and been on a diet that has helped you be close to achieving your ideal weight, but there are areas in your body with stubborn fat that refuse to budge. Gulf Coast Rejuvenation CoolSculpting Elite can help you reduce the fat non-surgical, non-invasive, and using a safe approach. The method kills cryolipolysis to kill the difficult fat cells.


What Is Gulf Coast Rejuvenation CoolSculpting Elite?


CoolSculpting Elite can be described as a non-invasive and non-surgical body contouring treatment to reduce fat using an FDA-approved treatment known as cryolipolysis. In simple terms, Gulf Coast Rejuvenation CoolSculpting Elite is the popular name for the procedure of fat freezing cells to remove persistent fat from a specific area of the body.


The method of freezing fat before you remove them is known as cryolipolysis. The FDA approved this method in 2010. Moreover, The technology of cryolipolysis is advanced and works by freezing fat cells and destroying about 25 % of the cells in the area where the procedure has been done.


The applicators of CoolSculpting Elite can focus on the fat cells only without destroying other tissue in the body because fat cells usually freeze at higher temperatures than skin. The body area to be treated is placed with applicators, followed by cooling it down to temperatures that can only freeze the fat cells and cause cell death. With the cryolipolysis procedure, fat will be able to be removed safely while leaving tissues and your skin unharmed.


Lastly, the immune system will slowly metabolize and get rid of the dead fat cells as time goes by.

How Do You Know You Are A Good Candidate For CoolSculpting Elite

The Gulf Coast Rejuvenation CoolSculpting Elite procedure is suitable for both men and women. As long as they are physically active, they have a healthy lifestyle and are close to achieving their ideal weight. However, it is important to know that CoolSculpting Elite is not a treatment for weight loss. Rather it is focused on getting rid of fat that stubbornly did not respond to exercise and diet. Therefore, the patients need to have realistic expectations when they opt for Gulf Coast Rejuvenation CoolSculpting Elite treatment and its results.


As is expected, just like any other procedure or treatment, CoolSculpting Elite has limitations on who can undergo the treatment. If you have any of the following conditions, it is wise to avoid the cryolipolysis treatments:


  • Any medical history of paradoxical fat hyperplasia
  • Cold urticaria. This is a skin condition that reacts with hives on your skin whenever it is cold.
  • This is a condition when you are in cold temperatures, where abnormal proteins in the blood thicken.
  • Poorly toned skin or loose skin
  • Paroxysmal cold globulinemia. This variety of anemia destroys the red blood cells in the body when one is in cold temperatures.
  • Raynaud’s phenomenon.

Other reasons to avoid CoolSculpting Elite include:


  • If you cannot handle cold properly
  • If you are breastfeeding or pregnant
  • If you have obesity

What To Expect During A CoolSculpting Elite Procedure


The cryolipolysis procedure is not a surgical procedure, and therefore, there will be no use of needles. After you arrive at the hospital, you will get set up in a comfortable treatment room. The patient will be applied to the area to be treated with a thin layer of protective gel. In addition to the many advantages of Gulf Coast Rejuvenation CoolSculpting Elite, you can perform the procedure on two areas during one session instead of just one. This will decrease the number of treatment times for individuals that need to treat several areas in the body.


During the procedure, one can feel a deep cooling sensation in the area being treated and the applicators gently tugging and pulling on the site. You can get as comfortable as you wish during the procedure by doing an activity that relaxes you, whether you wish to listen to your favorite music, play a game, or read a book.


A special device holds the body area to be treated in place for the doctor between two paddles. In addition, the paddles will cool rapidly and will be left there for about one hour with a few additional minutes or fewer minutes.


The body part being treated may turn red, feel numb, and look bruised or swollen after the treatment. These minor side effects disappear a few hours or days after the procedure. The procedure results will take a few months to show, but visible change will start in a few weeks.
