Loose Skin for inner thighs
Coolsculpting will not correct loose skin
Coolsculpting is an excellent non-invasive fat reduction tool. You will lose 20% of the fat in any given area treated. However, it will do nothing to address skin laxity or cellulite. Given your age and skin I would investigate Thermage for both cellulite and skin tightening. With the new Thermage CPT total tip it will help with both areas, especially in the legs and buttock area. Please make sure to consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with Thermage for the best results.

Coolsculpting is not ideal for the inner thigh looseness
Some patients obtain benefit but must maintain maintenance treatments to improve the skin's integrity of the inner thigh by having Endermologie or Velashape, deep massage.
There may be benefit with some energy delivering devices such as Thermage, Pelleve, Ultherapy and the newest ThermiSmooth or ThermiRF, but more work needs to be done with the latter to determine its effectiveness by analyzing long term followup data which is not yet available.
