Effects of Coolsculpting on loose skin?

CoolSculpting can often tighten skin
CoolSculpting can reduce fat well
The ideal candidate for abdominal coolsculpting has localized mounds of fat above, not below, the muscle wall and has good elasticity of their skin. Pricing normally depends on the number of applicators applied. I consult individually with all CoolSculpting patients and measure them with templates and then they know how many applicators would be used to provide them with the best result. There are multiple applicators for different body sites, and their cost may vary.
Some patients, but they are not the norm, only need one applicator.

Skin Tightening from CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting was invented to non-surgically reduce fat, based on the discovery that fat dies by a process of apoptosis when close to freezing. The added benefit of skin "tightening" is observed in particular areas such as the lower tummy and back but not the inner thighs and maybe due to the process of inflammation and collagen formation when injury occurs. FDA approval by Zeltiq, the manufacturer of CoolSculpting was for the fat loss and not for skin tightening.
Single applicator pricing varies throughout the US. I have seen as low as $450.00 and as high as $950.00 per applicator session. Please obtain proper consultation from a Certified CoolSculpting specialist to understand its limitations and reduce any unnecessary dissatisfaction or improper recommendations and promises!
All the best!
Coolsculpting and skin tightening
Hope that helps,
Let's talk about Tummys.
Smaller to medium areas of unwanted fat are best treated with either CoolSculpting or UltraShape.
CoolSculpting costs are measured in how many applicators are needed. The best results come with overlapping the applicators. Often times more than one treatment, so you need a consult.
UltraShape is more comfortable by far than CoolSculpting, and uses pulsed focused ultrasound, and commonly is a set of 3 to 4 treatment sessions.
For larger abdomens there is Vanquish™ which targets RF energy to selectively get rid of fat cells, and usually is 4 to 6 treatments.
In our clinic, Key Laser, we have all three of these treatment because removing fat non-invasively is no longer about one choice, but which choice would be the best choice for our patient.
Does Coolsculpting tighten skin?
I receive this question all the time! From having done over 5000 Coolsculpting procedures and analyzing photos, I tell patients that if they started off with loose skin, that will stay the same and if they started off firm, they will stay the same. You may have some minimal skin tightening but it is definitely not as much as a surgical tightening procedure.
