Benefits of the CoolSculpting Procedure Over Liposuction

Analyzing How CoolSculpting Technology Aids Fat Removal

If you’ve wondered why “CoolSculpting inner thighs” seems to be a trending term on the Internet, it’s because this procedure is growing in popularity. Based on the concept of freezing fat cells to the point in which they may be absorbed and expelled by the body naturally, CoolSculpting does not require any needles, incisions, anesthesia, or recovery. CoolSculpting is safe and effective and approved by both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the American Medical Association (AMA). While it destroys fat cells, it won’t damage any surrounding nerves, muscles, or other tissues.

Are You a Good Candidate for a CoolSculpting Thighs Procedure?

There isn’t anything you must do to prepare for CoolSculpting treatment aside from being in good health and relatively close to your ideal body weight. Those who are severely obese may not make the best CoolSculpting candidates due to excess laxity in their skin and dangerous levels of visceral fat around their organs. CoolSculpting is recommended to treat subcutaneous fat only, which is surface layer fat that may be pinched easily between your fingers. Patients will also need to keep up with a sensible diet and a healthy, active lifestyle after a CoolSculpting procedure to maintain their results in the long-term.

What to Expect from Your CoolSculpting Thighs Treatments

CoolSculpting treatment works well for men and women of all ages. On average, people tend to see up to a 25% fat reduction in the targeted area of treatment. Session times will vary depending on the area of treatment and the amount of fat cells that need to be frozen, but the average session for each thigh takes about 30 to 60 minutes. If treating your inner thighs, it may be necessary for your CoolSculpting provider to pinch your areas of excess fat to promote more successful fat removal.

You may experience mild discomfort during and after the procedure, but this should subside quickly. Many people read, text, or listen to music during their CoolSculpting procedure. You’ll likely notice minor pinching and pulling over the targeted areas on your inner or outer thighs, as well as the coldness from the device. Afterward, your CoolSculpting provider will gently massage the targeted area to help break up any frozen deep tissue to aid in the natural absorption process.

Are There Any Side Effects Associated with CoolSculpting?

Most patients can resume normal activities immediately after a treatment session, although minor side effects are common. These may include redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness, or sensitivity at the site of treatment, along with cramping, aching, itching, or tingling sensations. Results may vary by individual and may not be noticeable immediately. Generally, it takes about one to three months for the body to remove the destroyed fat cells and up to six months to see the final CoolSculpting procedural results.

What’s the Average Price of CoolSculpting Procedures?

CoolSculpting procedure costs vary according to the targeted area and how extensive the fat cell freezing process is, as well as by provider and geographical location. They’re also dependent on the number of treatments required to achieve optimal results. The average costs of CoolSculpting procedures fall between $2,000 and $4,000, and many insurance providers do not cover these costs because it may be considered an elective cosmetic treatment. However, our office may be able to work with you to obtain financing to make CoolSculpting treatment more affordable within your budget.
