CoolSculpting treatment can be effective for reducing fat on the inner thighs. Most patients report minimal pain and swelling after the procedure. Results may take six months to complete. A change in shape or weight may require additional treatments. Cost depends on area targeted. CoolSculpting treatments are expensive but well worth the results. They are a good choice for people who want to lose inner thigh fat without surgery.
Results can take up to six months
CoolSculpting inner thigh treatment is performed by a trained healthcare provider using a device resembling the nozzle of a vacuum cleaner. The applicator draws fat cells to the surface of the skin using controlled cooling. The applicator glides across the skin as the patient is placed under a blanket. This is done so the patient feels comfortable throughout the treatment.
Patients can see early results of CoolSculpting within three to four weeks. However, for dramatic results, follow-up CoolSculpting treatments are necessary. A good diet and regular exercise are important for sustaining the new results. Although CoolSculpting can be a great way to get a smaller thigh, it is not an effective weight loss solution. You’ll need to maintain healthy eating habits and exercise to keep the new skin looking great.
Pain and discomfort is minimal
After CoolSculpting, most patients notice minimal pain and discomfort. Swelling is usually short-lived and usually resolves within two to three weeks. Some patients may experience numbness and/or squirming for a few days. The thigh area is much less prone to swelling than the abdomen. Initially, results are visible in three to four weeks. However, the final results will not be visible for up to three weeks.
There is a risk of some minor discomfort or swelling, although these are minor and short-lived. However, most patients report no pain or discomfort at all. Some patients have reported tingling, aching, tugging, or sensitivity after CoolSculpting treatments for inner thighs. After the procedure, there may be some sensitivity to heat or cold, but this rarely occurs.
Cost of treatment
The cost of CoolSculpting treatments for inner thighs will vary depending on the size of the area. Larger areas require larger applicators, which are typically more expensive to purchase from the manufacturer and for the patient to purchase. The cost of a single treatment for one inner thigh will range from $750 to $1,500. Most practices will give discounts to multiple patients who purchase more than one treatment at a time.
CoolSculpting is a safe, noninvasive procedure. Because the treatment is customized to each individual, costs will vary accordingly. The most accurate information will be available during a consultation with a CoolSculpting provider. During this consultation, you will be asked about your goals and specific areas that have trouble spots. Your provider will guide the conversation and examine before-and-after pictures of previous patients to determine what type of procedure is most suitable for you.
