Coolsculpting treatment

CoolSculpting Elite

Patients often struggle to eliminate stubborn fat deposits in the midsection, arms, and thighs, even with a healthy diet and exercise.

Fortunately, Dr. Benjamin Boudreaux and Dr. Jeffrey Claiborne can freeze away unwanted fat cells with CoolSculpting® Elite.

Find out why this innovative new treatment is so popular among our New Orleans, LA, patients...

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting uses a cooling process called cryolipolysis to freeze away unwanted fat cells. Fat cells are more sensitive to cold than other cells, allowing the device to target fat without affecting surrounding tissues. When the fat is frozen, the cells crystallize, and over the next few weeks, they are naturally flushed from the body. As the fat disappears, you'll notice your body become visibly slimmer and more defined in the targeted area.

Your Treatment Process

Here is what you can generally expect when you arrive at our Northshore practice for your CoolSculpting treatment...
According to their website, CoolSculpting Elite patients can achieve 20-25% fat reduction in a single treatment.

Day of Procedure

According to their website, CoolSculpting Elite patients can achieve 20-25% fat reduction in a single treatment.


During treatment, Dr. Boudreaux and Dr. Claiborne will position areas of unwanted fat under the handheld Coolsculpting device. The new Elite version is fitted with two applicator nozzles to target a larger number of fat cells.


We maneuver the applicator around the area, delivering freezing temperatures to the underlying fat cells. You may feel cold or slight pressure at first, but as your body adjusts, you should become more comfortable. Some patients use the time to read a book, or catch up on emails, or even take a nap!

Final Touches

We complete the session by massaging the area to break up any fat cells that have become frozen in the deep-tissue layers. You may experience some minor side effects including redness, numbness, or tingling, but these should fade after a few hours. Because treatment is non-invasive, you can return to work, errands, and even the gym as soon as you leave.


Most patients start to enjoy a slimmer figure about three weeks after treatment. The effects will become more dramatic over time as the fat cells are expelled from the body until you reach the final results at about eight to 12 weeks. While many patients are happy after one treatment, you can safely undergo additional sessions to increase the definition. With proper nutrition and exercise, patients can enjoy results that last for years. Patients in the greater New Orleans and Metairie areas can schedule a consultation at our Northshore practice today to get started on their body transformation.
