Does coolsculpting tighten skin ?

A retrospective study on CoolSculpting discussed its clinical safety and efficacy, as well as its potential for business growth, in a plastic surgery practice. As shown in the aforementioned article, significant fat reduction can be achieved nonsurgically by CoolSculpting. Patients in flank and buttocks examples in the article also showed evidence of significant skin tightening. While CoolSculpting is well established as a nonsurgical method for fat reduction.

CoolSculpting may improve skin firmness & elasticity. A small but consistent number of patients experience an improvement in skin tone and appearance following CoolSculpting. Some have seen a noticeable fold diminish as the skin adopts a smoother, more aesthetically pleasing contour.

CoolSculpting appears to preserve skin’s tone & appearance in the treated area. For optimal results with fat reduction, the skin must be able to contract to fit the new, slimmer body contours. This is why liposuction is discouraged in patients with poorer skin elasticity, as the skin may appear loose after the fat is removed. In contrast, the majority of CoolSculpting patients have seen their skin contract nicely as their full results become apparent. In other words, the reduction in size of a given bulge has not resulted in increased skin laxity, even for patients who have had a fairly dramatic reduction in fat from the treatment.

CoolSculpting may improve skin firmness & elasticity. A small but consistent number of patients experience an improvement in skin tone and appearance following CoolSculpting. Some have seen a noticeable fold diminish as the skin adopts a smoother, more aesthetically pleasing contour. While only surgery can remove excess skin, the phenomenon is promising news for patients who are bothered by excess fat and a moderate amount of stretched skin, but who are not ready for surgery—for example, post-pregnancy moms who are planning to having more children. For these women, CoolSculpting could provide a cost-effective interim treatment to help them improve their shape while still growing their family.
