8 months post op of CoolSculpting, I noticed skin discoloration on my thighs. Is this normal? (photos)

Discoloration after CoolSculpting not common.
Another issue that may be interpreted as pigment is simply due to shadows. I have found that in inner thigh area can have the illusion of darkness even before CoolSculpting due to the draping of the skin when standing upright. This is especially true when skin laxity is present.
Skin discoloration post coolsculpting
Coolsculpting is a great non-invasive fat reducing procedure. I have not seen any discoloration after the procedure. Was it red originally? If you have some post-inflammatory pigmentation it should resolve in time. I suggest you consult a board certified dermatologist for another opinion if this is of concern for you.
