I appreciate your question.
yes you can. The combination might give you a great result
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.

Combining Coolsculpting with Thermage

I often find the best combination of treatment is Thermage with Coolsculpting.  You absolutely can have the procedure.  Please keep us posted on your results.

Thermage and Coolsculpting

You should be able to do Coolsculpting after Thermage.  Three months is more than adequate.  In fact combining Coolsculpting with non-invasive skin tightening devices are becoming more popular as people are seeking less invasive options to contour and tighten their abdominal region or thighs.

I often use a skin-tightening machine before or after Coolsculpting.  You are good to get Coolsculpting now.  Enjoy!

Coolsculpting and Thermage are not contraindicated. In fact, the two devices can augment your results.

Coolsculpting after Thermage

Yes, Coolsculpting can be done after Thermage treatment since it affects the adipose tissue and not the superficial layer of the skin.

Thermage and CollSculpting are 2 different modalities that often can be used together.  Go ahead and CoolSculpt away!
