Allergan Aesthetics, an AbbVie company, has announced the launch of CoolSculpting Elite.
CoolSculpting Elite is fat reduction system with applicators designed to complement the body’s natural curves. It harnesses proven CoolSculpting technology to target, freeze and eliminate treated fat cells.
CoolSculpting Elite is FDA cleared to treat visible fat bulges in the body including the thigh, abdomen, flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), upper arm, the submental and submandibular areas.
“The number one aesthetic concern for consumers is excess body fat1. CoolSculpting has been an industry-leader, creating the market for non-invasive fat reduction over 10 years ago. Now CoolSculpting Elite builds on that heritage with a completely re-invented next-generation technology that delivers results,” says Carrie Strom, senior VP, AbbVie, and President, Global Allergan Aesthetics. “We understand the challenges of today’s world and as people prepare to go from being online to spending more time in person, CoolSculpting Elite can help them address their bothersome fat.”
CoolSculpting Elite will launch with a new applicator collection, which includes seven different shapes and sizes. The new C-shaped applicators are designed to complement the body’s natural curves for improved fit and comfort during initial tissue draw.
“CoolSculpting is a critical part of my business and a device I’ve relied on to help my patients achieve their desired outcome of reducing stubborn fat.” said Sabrina Fabi, MD, board-certified dermatologist and associate research director at Cosmetic Laser Surgery in San Diego. “The dual applicators allow us to treat two areas at the same time, safely freezing twice the fat compared to using a single CoolSculpting applicator, which helps us save on time. With the Elite applicator collection we are able to treat a wide range of body areas and personalize each patient’s treatment plan.”
Allergan Aesthetics is now taking orders for the CoolSculpting Elite device, and the first units will ship in Q1 2021.
