CoolSculpting for knees
Yes CoolSculpting can be used for fatty areas around your knees, as long as they are using the right applicator. I suggest going to a experienced provider such as a board certified plastic surgeon for a consulation and assesment.
Best of luck to you!
CoolSculpting for Fat Knees
CoolSculpting has FDA approval for fat reduction since 2010. CoolSculpting freezes the fat cells. Fat cells are more susceptible to damage by freezing than the other cells, (nerve, vessel, bone, etc.), around them. The fat cells die via a process called apoptosis, (programmed cell death). The number of fat cells are therefore reduced. This happens over a period of time, so the body is not overwhelmed with dead fat cells. The body will take these cells up, process them and excrete them, just as any other cell. The remnants are filtered through the liver, and then excreted eventually via stool. Knees can be a challenge with any modality. CoolSculpting has a specific applicator that has been used in this area with good results. We have had good experience with the skin snapping back. Each individual is different. See an experienced CoolSculpting practice, they will determine if you are a candidate. Would also consider seeing a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, who can give advice on both CoolSculpting and Liposuction.
