For men and women who can’t seem to achieve their desired shape but aren’t interested in surgery, CoolSculpting® offers a nonsurgical body contouring option. CoolSculpting uses a process called cryolipolysis to freeze and destroy fat cells without harming the surrounding skin and tissue.
We are the first practice in the Twin Cities to offer CoolSculpting Elite, the latest version of this popular non-surgical body sculpting solution. CoolSculpting Elite offers several benefits over the original treatment, including the ability to treat two areas simultaneously, more coverage, and increased fat reduction.

Best Candidates for CoolSculpting
The best candidates for CoolSculpting Elite treatments are men or women in good overall health who are at or near their target weight, but have some lingering fat deposits that diet and exercise aren’t addressing. The most common treatment spots for CoolSculpting Elite include the love handles, tummy, back and thighs, but CoolSculpting can be applied almost anywhere on the body.
What to Expect
CoolSculpting Elite treatments are performed by first placing the CoolSculpting device on the target area(s) and applying controlled cooling to the underlying layer of fat. Because the overlying skin and tissue should go numb after the first few moments of cooling, most people report feeling little to no discomfort during their treatment.
CoolSculpting freezes and destroys fat cells in the treated area, after which they will be removed by your body’s natural elimination processes. At SpaVie, we are able to treat both sides of the body at the same time — so for example, the left and right love handles could be treated simultaneously. This can cut down on the need for multiple visits, shortening your overall treatment time by half.
The Stacking Technique
We perform the “stacking technique,” which uses back-to-back applications for the same treatment area during the same session. This method of treatment can reduce up to 60 percent of fat in the treatment area compared to the typical 25 percent reduction seen after standard CoolSculpting treatments.
Recovery & Results
CoolSculpting Elite doesn’t require any downtime and you can resume your normal routine right after your appointment. However, you may experience some mild swelling, bruising and soreness in and around the treated area(s), which should subside over the following week.
Although individual experiences vary, your results should gradually develop over the coming weeks and months. Subsequent treatments can build upon your initial results. Dr. Harrington will help you develop the best plan for meeting your goals with CoolSculpting treatments.
