I have never gotten any results from exercise for underarms. Would CoolSculpting of them be an option for me?

coolsculpting does work for arms
However, if you have nerve conditions in the area I think it would best be avoided
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 and Neuropathy
Coolsculpting is a great procedure and used on many patients in the arms and legs. However, if you have a history of neuropathy I would definitely avoid this procedure.

CoolSculpting Upper Arms
As of yet there is not an arm specific applicator, there are many configurations that, depending on the pt and their arms can be very useful.
Here in Canada we tend to use the Cool Fit applicator for upper arm reshaping.
Regarding peripheral nerves - it's not uncommon to have some temporary numbness in a treatment area. This subsides with time.
While the Cool Sculpting treatment doesn't penetrate down to the depth of the major nerves it would be a good idea to clarify the severity of your condition before moving ahead with any contouring procedure. It might be advisable to manage your pinched nerves before reshaping your arms.
Discuss this further with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area. You can develop a more tailored treatment plan from there.
All the best.
