CoolSculpting an Excellent Option for Thighs

Yes, CoolSculpting is a versatile treatment that can treat multiple areas of the body thanks to different applicators designed for specific treatment locations. Initially, CoolSculpting was cleared by the FDA for only the abdomen and flanks. But the CoolSmooth and CoolFit applicators are cleared to treat the inner and outer thighs, which are trouble spots for many patients. Treatments using the CoolSmooth applicator typically take longer, around 2 to 3 hours, but they are very effective and quite comfortable.

Coolsculpting on the thighs

Coolsculpting is a great solution for non-invasive fat reduction of the thighs in the right patient.  There is a special applicator that is designed for the outer thighs.  Treatment of the inner thighs can be tricky if not performed by an office with extensive experience in treating thighs.  If the wrong applicator is chosen, there can be potential for a "step-off" or indention.  Most patients will need multiple treatments for best results.
