Berkshire Aesthetics is excited to be able to offer our patients the latest development in the world’s #1 fat freezing treatment.
CoolSculpting® Elite, its next generation fat reduction system with applicators designed to complement the body’s natural curves. CoolSculpting® Elite harnesses proven CoolSculpting® technology to target, freeze, and eliminate treated fat cells.
CoolSculpting® Elite is FDA cleared to treat visible fat bulges in nine areas of the body including the thigh, abdomen, and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), upper arm, and the submental and submandibular areas.

Berkshire Aesthetics was the first UK clinic to receive training in the new CoolSculpting Elite.
Our doctor is the lead of the UK CoolSculpting Faculty and works closely with Allergan Medical Affairs giving her special insight into treating patients with the new device.
CoolSculpting Elite has seven applications which is two more than the CoolSculpting Legacy device. With more applicators, we are able to achieve a more sculpted result.
CoolSculpting is best performed by practitioners with an eye for detail and a true understanding of the human form. Combining many years of surgical training with a more advanced range of applicators means our doctor can sculpt and define your ideal body more easily.
The newly designed applicators have a ‘C’ shape rather than a ‘U’ shape which means better contact with skin. CoolSculpting works by freezing the subcutaneous fat which sits just below the skin. The redesigned cups of the new applicator are more efficient giving more consistent cooling across a greater area meaning fewer cycles are needed to achieve the same result as before.
A side-by-side comparison has been performed comparing patient comfort with the CoolSculpting Elite applicators vs the CoolSculpting Legacy applicators. Not surprisingly the new applicators are more comfortable which is in part to their new shape plus a redesigned vacuum system making the ‘draw’ of the skin more even.
While we are excited to bring our patients the latest CoolSculpting technology we still offer the legacy system. Our doctor has built up considerable skill in the use of the Legacy system and for certain complex treatments or patients the Legacy system will be for now continue to be the recommended option.
