01 Mar Could You Have Loose Skin after CoolSculpting®?
After getting CoolSculpting®, expect to see some amazing changes to your body over the next weeks and months. You should notice that your clothes are fitting better and your body shape looks and feels slimmer. However, if you also notice that your skin seems to be looser than before, you probably have questions about CoolSculpting and loose skin. Here’s what you need to know.
Your Skin Elasticity Can Make a Difference
Although CoolSculpting isn’t a weight loss method, it does remove stubborn fat from targeted areas of your body. If enough fat is removed, you may notice some loose skin in that area. Whether or not your skin will “snap back” into place and tighten on its own after CoolSculpting depends on factors like your skin’s elasticity, your age and genetics.
For many people, loose skin is only temporary and a tighter look and feel returns as their bodies recuperate and they begin to see results after CoolSculpting treatments.
If loose skin is a concern for you, discuss this with your CoolSculpting provider at your consultation.
Consider Nonsurgical Skin Tightening Treatments
If you are left with some loose skin after CoolSculpting, know that there are options available to help you get the toned, tight look you want. Nonsurgical skin tightening treatments can help without requiring surgery or downtime.
For more extensive cases, a surgical tummy tuck may be the most effective solution to remove excess skin. However, in most cases, your CoolSculpting provider should be able to tell if you are a better candidate for surgical body contouring vs. nonsurgical body contouring during your initial consultation.
