Coolsculpting Thighs: How to Freeze Away Inner & Outer Thigh Fat

July 28, 2022

CoolSculpting thighs treatments reduce fat from one of the most troublesome areas on the body. Best of all, there is no surgery, or a complicated recovery involved. Read on to learn more about the innovative CoolSculpting and how it contours slim, attractive legs in as little as 35 minutes.

The Truth about Thigh Fat

For women, the thighs are a common trouble zone. Both the inner and outer thighs store resistant fat. This means the fat gathering here is hard to eliminate with manual efforts like dieting and exercising.

Hormones directly influence thigh fat. Female bodies tend to store more fat in this area to act as an energy reserve for pregnancy and breastfeeding. Unfortunately, due to its biological makeup, thigh fat is extremely difficult to reduce on your own. And since “spot reducing” fat is a myth, no diet or exercise can specifically target and burn off fat in the legs. Thankfully, CoolSculpting thigh treatments introduce a non-invasive way to eliminate fat cells for good.

CoolSculpting Thighs Treatment

CoolSculpting thighs is one of the most popular treatment areas. With cooling sessions, women can contour their outer thighs and reduce “saddlebags” with the CoolSmooth applicator. This handheld device reduces external thigh fat with ease. In addition, it features a non-vacuum-based cooling, allowing it to treat hard, non-pinchable fat like that of the outer thighs. Clinical research shows that the CoolSmooth applicator results in “visible fat reduction after just one treatment.”

Another innovative addition to the CoolSculpting applicator line is the CoolFit. This applicator perfectly treats hard-to-reach areas like the inner thighs. It has a vacuum cup and large cooling plates that contour inner portion of the thigh.

Clinical studies evaluating the efficacy of CoolSculpting on inner thigh fat reveal “84% of patients noticed visible fat reduction after just one treatment, and 93% of patients were satisfied with their results.” Furthermore, “90% of patients would repeat the procedure.”

What Are the Different CoolSculpting Applicators for Thigh Fat Reduction?

CoolSculpting Elite uses two cutting-edge applicators with an 18% larger cooling area than traditional ones. These are more effective for fat reduction because they can eliminate up to two times more fat than regular CoolSculpting.

The new applicators come in seven unique shapes and sizes. They make it easier to fit comfortably and effectively on the thigh area. In addition, we use certain applicator(s) to target specific thigh areas, such as the inner and outer thighs.

Finally, the dual applicators are designed to provide a more even cooling distribution, which reduces fat more evenly and efficiently. As a result, patients enjoy a more sculpted, contoured look in less time.1

Can Dual Sculpting with CoolSculpting Elite Reduce Thigh Fat Faster?

Dual sculpting with CoolSculpting Elite is a newer technique that uses two applicators to treat two areas at once. It can help reduce fat faster than traditional CoolSculpting, which treats only one area at a time. By treating two areas at the same time, dual sculpting cuts treatment time in half and reduces the treatment time for the patient.

The efficiency of dual sculpting can also bring faster results. Many patients who get CoolSculpting Elite observe a visible fat reduction in their thighs in as little as three weeks.

How Many CoolSculpting Sessions Do I Need to Reduce Thigh Fat?

The exact number of CoolSculpting sessions each person needs to reduce thigh fat differs. If you have more fat to lose in that area, you may need multiple sessions to see results. But if you’re close to your goal weight and your focus is toning up, you may not need as many treatments. One or two sessions may be enough if you have a small amount of excess thigh fat.

It’s worth noting that everybody reacts to CoolSculpting differently. Some may experience significant thigh fat reduction after a single CoolSculpting Elite session. Others may need several to achieve their cosmetic goals.

The best way to find out how many CoolSculpting treatments you need is to schedule a free consultation with COCAR. We’ll recommend an effective treatment plan that accounts for your goals, body type, and other relevant factors.

What Is the Typical Cost of CoolSculpting Thighs?

The cost of CoolSculpting thighs varies based on several factors:

Generally, treating larger areas costs more than treating smaller areas

The more sessions you need to achieve desired results, the more expensive the treatment will be.

Experienced providers may charge more for their services. But their expertise ensures you get the best possible results.

Many clinics offer discounts or package deals for multiple sessions. Don’t be shy to ask about them during your initial consultation.

Can I Combine CoolSculpting With Other Fat Reduction Treatments for Better Results?

Yes. You can combine CoolSculpting with other fat-reduction treatments to get more dramatic results.

A popular complementary treatment is a skin-tightening procedure like radiofrequency (RF). An RF treatment harnesses energy to tighten and firm the skin, enhancing fat-freezing results. With both together, you’ll not only shed fat, but you’ll also enjoy a smoother, more contoured look.

Another treatment that people often combine CoolSculpting with is liposuction. Since it’s an invasive procedure with a lengthy recovery, it’s not preferred unless necessary. However, liposuction can help you get closer to your ideal body weight if you have a lot of fat to lose. From there, CoolSculpting can eliminate the final remnants of stubborn fat and contour your thighs.

Not all combination treatments are appropriate for every patient. Before deciding on body enhancement procedures, schedule a consultation to assess your needs.

When Will I See Full CoolSculpting Thighs Results?

Having realistic expectations is key to enjoying impressive CoolSculpting thighs results. Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting isn’t a one-and-done procedure for most, and it can take a couple of months to see full results. While some patients notice slimmer thighs three weeks after the treatment, the most dramatic results can manifest in up to three months.

Will CoolSculpting Address Sagging Thighs?

CoolSculpting alone won’t fix sagging thighs but will give a subtle tone. It’s a fat-freezing treatment, reducing the amount of fat stored in the area. Combining a complementary treatment could yield better results if you struggle with sagging thighs. For example, a skin-tightening treatment can reduce sagging and improve skin texture, while CoolSculpting slims down your thighs.

Is a Thigh CoolSculpting Treatment Right for Me?

CoolSculpting thigh treatments are not right for every patient. The perfect candidate for fat freezing is a healthy adult struggling with a fat buildup in the thighs, inner or outer.
