Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just push a button and that stubborn, unwanted fat on your body would just disappear? With CoolSculpting Elite from Castellano Cosmetic Sugery Center in Tampa, we can turn this wish into a reality!
CoolSculpting Elite is the latest version of this popular non-surgical body sculpting option. Without any incisions or surgery, CoolSculpting is able to reach targeted fat cells and freeze them using a process called cryolipolysis so that they are destroyed and naturally removed from your body. CoolSculpting Elite is the only FDA-cleared treatment to eliminate stubborn fat in all of these areas of the body:
- Upper arms
- Bra fat/bra roll
- Back fat
- Abdomen and flanks
- Underneath the buttocks
CoolSculpting does not harm the surrounding skin and tissue, but is able to remove up to 25% of fat cells in a targeted area. Once these cells are removed, they won’t grow back – but keep in mind that remaining fat cells could get larger if you don’t maintain a proper diet and get regular exercise.
Our CoolSculpting Elite device is able to treat twice the fat with a dual-applicator system. All treatments are performed right in our office and can be completed more quickly than ever, with the ability to treat several areas simultaneously.
Dr. Castellano knows just how important it can be for men and women to look and feel their best. If you’ve been wondering “how do I find the best CoolSculpting provider near me,” the answer is to come in for a consultation at our practice. Request a consultation today to learn more.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR COOLSCULPTING?
Almost anyone with unwanted fat somewhere on their body can see a slimmer look with a series of CoolSculpting Elite treatments. The best results are seen for people who are in good overall health who are at or near their target weight.
If you are looking for more immediate or significant fat reduction, liposuction may be a better option. While it is surgical and therefore requires some downtime, fat is physically removed during liposuction instead of relying on your body’s natural processes to remove treated fat cells over time.
CoolSculpting Elite is not designed to remove stretch marks, which result from stretching and scarring on the more superficial layers of skin. If you have strech marks, we can provide stretch mark treatment through the use of a dual-therapy approach combining eMatrix radiofrequency therapy with PicoWay® Resolve laser therapy.
What to Expect
To begin a CoolSculpting Elite treatment, our technician places the CoolSculpting device on the targeted area(s) and allows the device to start working, applying controlled cooling to the underlying layer of fat. The top layers of skin and tissue in the treatment area will naturally go numb soon after the cooling starts, but otherwise you should not experience any discomfort during treatment.
Depending on the size of your treatment area and the number of spots you want to treat, each CoolSculpting session can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. We’ll provide more details of how long you should plan to be at the office during your initial consultation. Most patients are happy to enjoy the break in their day, catching up on email, watching a video on their phones, or just resting while the treatment is in process.
Recovery and Results
CoolSculpting Elite does not require downtime and you can carry on with your day’s activities right after you leave our office. You won’t have any scars from CoolSculpting and you don’t need to take time off of work or your other activities. However, you might have some mild swelling, bruising and soreness in and around the treatment areas. This should subside in about a week or less.
Remember that while CoolSculpting treatments can create a slimmer look, it is not a substitute for weight loss or a healthy lifestyle. You very likely will see almost no weight loss as a direct result of the procedure – it’s all about enhancing your body contour.
With Other Procedures
CoolSculpting can be combined with many other procedures to help our patients look younger and achieve a refreshed appearance. Consider some of our laser and light treatments, including laser skin resurfacing and Profound® RF skin tightening. It also may be a good time to smooth lines and wrinkles on your ace with injectable fillers or BOTOX® Cosmetic.
