There are few regulations in place for using FDA-approved products nor who can administer them; all of which carry inherent risks. It is vital to choose a qualified doctor who performs these services in a medical environment. Dr. Pennoyer is a board-certified Dermatologist who was the first local CoolSculpting provider and can administer these treatments safely and effectively, and manage complications.

What is CoolSculpting® Elite?

CoolSculpting® Elite is the #1 non-surgical fat reduction treatment in the US. This non-invasive, FDA-cleared treatment has been proven safe and effective for freezing and eliminating stubborn fat cells by up to 20-25% in the treatment area. The controlled cooling technology freezes and kills fat cells without harming surrounding cells or tissue. Following treatment, the frozen fat cells are eliminated over time by the body’s own natural processes. The fat cells are permanently eliminated from the body.

Why CoolSculpting Elite?

CoolSculpting Elite is the most advanced CoolSculpting technology available.  Elite offers better results in less time than the original CoolSculpting treatments: greater comfort, greater efficiency and greater speed.

The new applicators are designed to complement the body’s natural curves for an improved fit and comfort during treatments. There is up to an 18% larger cooling area for a more effective treatment. One Elite treatment reduces up to 20-25% of fat cells in the treated area.

The dual applicators can treat more areas of stubborn fat in less time than traditional CoolSculpting. Elite can treat nine areas of the body:  thigh, abdomen, and flank, along with bra fat, “love handles,” underneath the buttocks (banana roll), upper arm, and the double chin area.

Why Choose Dr. Pennoyer as Your Provider?

How CoolSculpting Elite Works

The notion that cold can target fat cells—without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue—is the basis of cryolipolysis, the proven science on which the CoolSculpting procedure is based. The study began at Harvard University where researchers observed that some children who ate popsicles got dimples in their cheeks, which signified that the popsicles were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells.

The science is proven. The technology is proven.

The CoolSculpting procedure is based on sound science and years of research which allows CoolSculpting to safely deliver precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target fat cells underneath the skin. These treated cells become frozen/crystallized, and then die off- allowing your body to naturally process the fat and eliminate these dead cells.

Are You A Good Candidate for CoolSculpting Elite?

A good candidate is someone who is in good health, eats well and exercises regularly, but has one or more areas of stubborn fat that won’t seem to go away. Specifically designed to treat subcutaneous fat, which is fat you can pull or grab, Elite can treat areas that display this type of fat.

CoolSculpting Elite patients can be either male or female, as long as they have realistic expectations and goals. It is also important for patients to realize that CoolSculpting is not a substitution for weight loss. Non-surgical CoolSculpting reduces the number of fat cells in the treated area, whereas losing weight reduces the size of fat cells.

Areas That Can Be Treated

  • Stomach/abdomen
  • Love handles/flanks
  • Under the chin (double chin)
  • Below jawline
  • Back/bra area
  • Upper arm
  • Thighs
  • Male chest (pseudogynecomastia)
  • Under buttocks (banana roll)

Cost of Treatment

The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of treatments needed, and your ultimate goals. Most patients opt to receive treatments in multiple body areas in order to achieve their goals.

The procedure is not covered by insurance. All consultations for CoolSculpting are free and financing is available through the CareCredit card which lets you pay for surgical and non-surgical procedures in convenient monthly payments that fit your financial situation.

Your Treatment Plan: Customized to Your Body

Everyone’s Body is Different
We will work with you on the best treatment plan tailored to your needs. It may take as little as one office visit to achieve your goals. With different applicators to choose from, we can design a treatment plan that can give you your desired results.

Eliminate Fat Where the Bulges Really Bother You
For some people, a customized treatment plan may include more than one CoolSculpting Elite treatment. For example, you may want to freeze away fat from your inner and/or outer thighs—and also get rid of that muffin top. Elite can treat different body areas at the same time.

It’s a Holistic Approach to Your Body-Sculpting Transformation
We will provide a clinical recommendation of which areas should be treated and how many treatments you will need.

Your Treatment Day

During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator will be applied to the targeted area(s). The CoolSculpting Elite applicator(s) deliver controlled cooling to the targeted fat. During your procedure, feel free to read, check email, or even take a nap.

After the applicator is detached, your provider will do a brief massage on the area(s) to break up the treated fat cells and enhance the fat reduction. That’s it! Most patients experience little to no downtime after treatment.

Since the procedure is completely non-surgical, you can typically return to normal activities immediately. Patients often return to work on the same day after a treatment is completed.


You may start to see results in as early as 3 weeks after treatment. However, you will see the most dramatic results between one and three months after treatment. In clinical trials, 100% of CoolSculpting Elite patients saw results within a 30 day period. Once your fat cells are destroyed, they are gone for good! For even better results, we pair CoolSculpting® Elite packages with Alastin Skincare TransFORM Body Treatment. This unique formulation can help accelerate the body’s natural removal of broken-down fat cells to accelerate and enhance visible results.
