Will CoolSculpting Work on My Inner Thighs?

CoolSculpting is a medical device approved by the FDA in 2010 for the reduction of fat cells, and it was used in Europe for the last five years with terrific results.  CoolSculpting is popular because it offers patients the opportunity to reduce stubborn fat deposits without the need for invasive surgical procedures that require downtime from work and regular activities. CoolSculpting is approved for reducing fat on the inner thighs, but the patient needs to have at least two inches of fat tissue that you can actually grab for optimal results because the applicator needs something to hold onto.  At West Houston Dermatology our medical professionals will first have a consultation with the patient to discuss their goals, evaluate their body type, and determine if CoolSculpting is the right treatment for them.  We want our patients to be satisfied with their results, but not everyone is a good candidate for CoolSculpting on the inner thighs, or other areas.  Therefore, our professionals may advise that certain patients are not good candidates for CoolSculpting, and we recommend other procedures or refer patients to another physician.  If you’re curious about all the buzz surrounding CoolSculpting and want to learn more, then contact West Houston Dermatology Laser and Skin Care Center today.
