Does the CoolSculpting reduce the appearance of stretch marks?
It will not improve stretch marks but can tighten the skin and remove some fat
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
best of luck!

Coolsculpting will remove the "pooch" but not treat the stretch marks
Coolsculpting is a fabulous way to freeze an area of fat - whether it be on the abdomen, flanks, thighs, buttocks. It will decrease the fat in a given area by twenty percent. Cool sculpting will not treat the skin or stretch marks. If you are interested in treating the stretch marks I would suggest the eMatrix as the best treatment. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with these procedures for the best cosmetic results.
Coolsculpting will work on fat, not stretch marks
Essentially, if you are interested in treating fat on your abdomen, flanks, or thighs, Coolsculpting is a safe and effective treatment that can provide excellent results. It will not however provide any significant improvement of your stretch marks.
If you do decide on Coolsculpting look for an experienced practice as the results may vary based on treatment applicators and technique.
Best of luck.

Congratulations! You also look great 3 months following giving birth. Thanks for sharing your photo.
This is a great question not previously asked about stretch marks (cutaneous striae). Stretch marks are due to the stretching of the skin, particularly the dermis with inadequate collagen formation. There is no good or consistent way to replace the collagen of stretch marks with any technique. Skin excision is the primary option to removing striae of the skin.
CoolSculpting (CS) is "tried and true". It will reduce limited fat in skin bulges and if multiple sessions are performed, a liposuction and contouring effect may be accomplished. Do not expect CS to shrink skin nor improve stretch marks.
I recommend you consult with a well experienced, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to consider your options.
Given the flower tattoo you have, and the possibility of more pregnancies, you may wish to consider CS at this time and a tummy tuck following all your pregnancies. You can have the tattoo re-finished following the tummy tuck.
I hope this has helped! All the best!
