Non-invasive treatment options for the inner thighs

I have not used Exilis so cannot comment on how well that treatment would work on the inner thighs. I have treated inner thighs with CoolSculpting however. If there is enough fatty tissue on the inner thigh to draw into the applicator, a CoolSculpting treatment should lead to improvement there. Not everyone is a good candidate for treatment of the inner thigh, so you would need to be seen in a consultation to determine if you might be a candidate or not.

CoolSculpting on inner thighs on muscular legs

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

CoolSculpting has FDA approval for fat reduction since 2010. CoolSculpting freezes the fat cells. Fat cells are more susceptible to damage by freezing than the other cells, (nerve, vessel, bone, etc.), around them. The fat cells die via a process called apoptosis, (programmed cell death). The number of fat cells are therefore reduced. This happens over a period of time, so the body is not overwhelmed with dead fat cells. The body will take these cells up, process them and excrete them, just as any other cell. The remnants are filtered through the liver, and then excreted eventually via stool. CoolSculpting now has an applicator for thighs.  CoolSculpting had been used in this area with good results. See an experienced CoolSculpting practice, they will determine if you are a candidate.  Best to see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.  They will be able to tell you of the different options, (CoolSculpting, Liposuction, Direct excision, etc.).

Treat Inner Thighs Painlessly with Vanquish!

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
With so many great new non-invasive devices for fat reduction, it is likely to be confusing for most to choose the best treatment.
In our office we use both the Vanquish ME and the UltraShape for fat reduction. Both are FDA approved for circumference reduction and this has proven to be true on both accounts!
Vanquish uses controlled radio frequency (RF) waves to target fat cells, destroying them without harming the muscle or skin while UtraShape uses ultrasonic waves to destroy subcutaneous fat.

The FDA has approved coolsculpting for the inner and outer thighs, and the results can be excellent with proper technique. Patient selection is key. Consult with a board certified physician who can provide both surgical options and coolsculpting to determine the best option for you.

Coolsculpting has the new cool fit applicator which was specifically designed for the inner thighs.  There is also a new applicator called the cool smooth for the other thighs which is very effective.  For the best results please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience in Coolsculpting.

My medical spa in Raleigh North Carolina treats only the inner part of the thigh with CoolSculpting.  Patients like yourself who are in good physical condition, eat well and exercise, are better candidates for CoolSculpting than those who are not near their ideal body weight.  It is important to have a consult with a trusted CoolSculpting provider to be assessed in office.  You would need to have enough fatty tissue in the treatment area in order to see results. My practice offers CoolSculpting Complete which includes a compression garment for comfort and swelling reduction, as well as vibrational therapy to help eliminate fat cells by stimulating lymphatic drainage.

Being experienced in CoolSculpting gives our providers confidence in choosing the right treatment plan for patients and also gives our patients benefits like Instant Rebates (buy one area, get one free) and CoolSculpting Complete.  My practice is the top CoolSculpting provider in our region and our patients enjoy getting great results and free CoolSculpting.

  • CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, clinically proven procedure to selectively reduce fat layers in problem areas using a patented cooling technology. It is a safe procedure cleared by the FDA that gently cools unwanted fat cells in the body to induce a natural, controlled elimination of fat cells. Perfect for diet and exercise resistant, stubborn fat.
  • On average, each CoolSculpting Procedure results in a 20% reduction of fat in the treated areas.  I suggest having a CoolSculpting consult, to see if you are a good candidate.

Coolsculpting for inner thighs

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

We have had great results for the inner thighs with Coolsculpting. For patients that are good candidates for Coolsculpting for this area, it's a great, non-invasive procedure. If for some reason you aren't a good candidate for Coolsculpting, you may also consider Tru-Sculpt for the inner thighs. For your best advice, consider a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon that has experience with both surgical and non-surgical options such as Coolsculpting and Tru-Sculpt. Good luck.

Inner thighs is not FDA approved

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Using Coolsculpting for treatment of the inner thighs is a non FDA approved use so we do not do this in our practice .

We have had Coolsculpting for over three years and see great results in properly selected individuals, location and fat texture are key variables.
