Does Coolsculpting Tighten Skin?

If you’re considering CoolSculpting, you’re likely wondering if you’ll end up with excess skin once excess fat has been frozen away. It’s a reasonable thought, especially since fat reduction often leads to excess or sagging skin afterward. While this is true for liposuction surgery, studies and patient experience suggest CoolSculpting tightens the skin, even if it’s not the purpose of the treatment.

CoolSculpting, and the advanced CoolSculpting Elite version, improve the appearance of lax tissue in areas throughout the body. That means not only does it reduce stubborn fat pockets in 9 areas of your choice, but it can improve the appearance of loose skin for a transformational result.

One of the most important aspects of CoolSculpting is having realistic expectations. Let’s go through how CoolSculpting works to get the results you hear about, so you can determine if this is a good option for yourself.

Your Skin After Fat Loss

When someone rapidly loses significant weight after pregnancy or in general, it’s normal for loose skin to be left behind. This typically happens around the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and arms, but it can occur in other areas of the body, like the double chin. Many patients compare CoolSculpting with Kybella, as Kybella injections are another popular solution for double chin reduction that achieves results using completely different technology.

The thought of loose skin showing up after working hard and spending money to rid of fat can reasonably make you stop to think about your decision. Thankfully CoolSculpting’s cryolipolysis technology gradually reduces fat, making it highly unlikely to leave anyone with sagging skin, or to worsen already loose skin.

Results After CoolSculpting

Results are not immediately noticeable with CoolSculpting as the body needs time to flush the frozen fat cells from your system. This is true with any of the popular CoolSculpting areas. It takes a few weeks, but you’ll start to see a visible reduction in the fat throughout the treated area.

After about four months, full results of up to 25% fat reduction in the treatment area will show. This slower process helps to keep your skin smooth and taut as your body slims and contours.

Getting the Most From CoolSculpting

One reason why men and women love CoolSculpting is it doesn’t require a lengthy recovery but still offers stunning improvements in very little time. People can schedule their appointments during their lunch breaks and return to work after. The procedure is tolerable, even comfortable, if you choose a skilled provider.

Though treatments involve minimal downtime, there are ways you can maximize CoolSculpting results and boost potential skin tightening, including:

  • Massage the treatment area gently after to help flush out the dead fat cells
  • Apply warm compresses to reduce pain, swelling, and cramping
  • Wear comfortable clothes that put minimal pressure on the body
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Stay away from processed foods, refined sugar, and carbohydrates
  • Eat more vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, and fruits
  • Avoid alcohol, as it increases the chances of bruising
  • Stay active to increase blood circulation (light walking and stretching counts!)

At Haus of Aesthetics, we regularly see success with CoolSculpting. Even clinical evaluations have shown consistent improvement in skin texture, laxity, and cellulite after cryolipolysis.

CoolSculpting is effective for patients of any adult age. As long as you have pinchable fat, cryolipolysis can reduce fat and tighten the skin.

CoolSculpting Cost

Naturally, if you’re considering fat-freezing technology, you’re wondering how much CoolSculpting costs. While an exact figure is hard to give as there are factors that go into CoolSculpting pricing, the average cost ranges anywhere from $1,500 to $4,000 per session.

Everyone’s CoolSculpting experience is unique. Some people may only need one session to see results, especially if they’re addressing smaller areas. But if you’re treating a larger area or have more fat to get rid of, you may need two to three treatments. Most patients see phenomenal results after two treatments.
