Psoriasis is not a contraindication for CoolSculpting

Psoriasis is not a contraindication for CoolSculpting. That being said, I recommend visiting a board-certified dermatologist for an in-person consultation to make sure that you are a good candidate for the procedure.

No it is not but I suggest you are a candidate before deciding on this treatment.  It often requires many applications to get improvement.
