Do you find yourself shying away from specific fashions like skinny jeans, leggings, and shorter shorts because you do not like the appearance of your thighs?
Whether genetics has caused you to carry extra fat on your outer thighs (saddlebags) or fluctuations in your weight have created stubborn bulges on your inner thighs, CoolSculpting® may be able to help you to love your legs; again!
CoolSculpting® is the world’s #1 non-surgical fat reduction treatment. To date, over a million people have used this innovative “fat-freezing” technology to help reshape their bodies without surgery or downtime. CoolSculpting® is FDA cleared to treat nine areas of your body, including below the chin, the upper arms, bra fat, back fat, the abdomen, under the buttocks, and…you guessed it – the inner and outer thigh area.
CoolSculpting® uses a process called cryolipolysis, or “fat-freezing,” to permanently destroy fat cells wherever the treatment applicator is applied. Each treatment cycle of CoolSculpting® can destroy up to 25% of treated fat cells. After treatment, your body’s lymphatic system will safely clear away the destroyed cells. Depending on the amount of fat initially, present and how much contouring you desire, multiple treatments may be needed.
When treating your thighs with CoolSculpting®, your provider will first map out a “treat-to-complete” plan that includes the number of cycles and treatments she recommends to get you the best result for your body and your goals. The applicator used for this treatment is specifically designed for the thigh area. Still, depending on the shape of your thighs and the fat present, your provider may customize your treatment with other applicators. Every BODY is different, but the goal of your provider is to get you the fastest, most complete results that complement YOUR body best.
During your treatment, you will be able to lay back in a comfortable position. The CoolSculpting® applicator will be strapped onto your thigh and held securely with Velcro and pillows. Treatment is about 35 minutes, during which time you will experience intense cooling and then comfortable numbness. There is little discomfort experienced with CoolSculpting® for thighs, and you will be able to return to your normal activities immediately.
After your treatment, you may experience some residual numbness and even tenderness at the treatment site. These symptoms are temporary and will quickly subside. Most patients begin to notice their results kick in around week 5-6, with full results seen three months after your last treatment. If your provider has recommended multiple treatments, these will be spaced about four weeks apart.
CoolSculpting®, mainly when used on the inner AND outer thigh, can completely transform your legs! Not only will you notice the size and circumference of your thighs decrease, but your clothes will begin to fit better, and your confidence will skyrocket!
