Does CoolSculpting Tighten Skin?
Prospective fat-freezing patients want to know, does CoolSculpting tighten skin? This is a common question providers hear at consultations. Many people want to know if the popular body contouring treatment will help reduce excess skin in the treatment area. After fat reduction treatments, like liposuction, some people struggle significantly with excess, sagging skin. Thankfully, new research shows that CoolSculpting does the opposite.
The new FDA clearance shows that CoolSculpting improves the appearance of lax tissue in the submental region and reduces stubborn neck and chin fat. This treatment provides people with a double solution to a double chin.
Clinical Evidence That CoolSculpting Tightens Skin
New clinical studies prove that CoolSculpting tightens skins. In one of the new studies, “Cryolipolysis and skin tightening,” The research shows that scientists evaluate CoolSculpting before and after images, finding a “noticeable skin tightening shown in clinical photographs.”
More proof is also found in patient survey data where patients were asked to assess changes to their skin texture and laxity after a CoolSculpting treatment. The study stated that both patients and investigators noted, “consistent improvement in skin texture and laxity for treatments to the outer thighs, abdomen, arms, and back.”
The study concluded, “consistent improvement in skin texture, laxity, and cellulite” results “after cryolipolysis.”
In the “Study to Evaluate Non-Invasive Subcutaneous Fat Reduction in the Submental Area Using Cryolipolysis,” patients received CoolSculpting to the submental region (the chin and neck area.) Of those patients, “77%… showed improved appearance of lax tissue and 75%… reported their chin looked more toned following treatment.”
CoolSculpting is FDA-Cleared to Tighten Skin
The academic findings won CoolSculpting its newest FDA clearance. According to a press release from Allergan, the makers of CoolSculpting, this treatment is the first and only non-surgical fat reduction technology to gain FDA clearance to improve the appearance of skin laxity in conjunction with submental fat or double chin treatments.
Am I the Right CoolSculpting Candidate?
Amazing as CoolSculpting sounds, thanks to its newest FDA clearance for improving skin laxity, this treatment is not suitable for everyone. The ideal CoolSculpting candidate is a healthy, active adult who struggles with diet and exercise-resistant fat in problem areas like the neck and chin region.
