Does CoolSculpting tighten skin? This common question becomes a more talked-about aspect of fat-freezing treatments. Some patients worry that after they achieve fat reduction, they might suffer from sagging or excess skin. With invasive surgery like liposuction, excess skin is a common issue for patients. However, with fat freezing, patients can enjoy optimal fat reduction and tightened skin.
A new FDA clearance now approves CoolSculpting for improving the look of lax tissue in the submental region, in addition to reducing neck and chin fat. This procedure provides patients with a double solution to the embarrassing double chin problem.
“Cryolipolysis and Skin Tightening” was substantiated by follow research from Allergan. In the “Study to Evaluate Non-Invasive Subcutaneous Fat Reduction in the Submental Area Using Cryolipolysis,” patients received treatment in the submental region (neck and chin.) Of those patients, “77%… showed improved appearance of lax tissue.” Moreover, “75% reported their chin looked more toned following treatment.”
Calculating the data, the study shows that patients found consistent improvements in their skin texture and laxity for treatments to the outer thighs, stomach, arms, and back. The study also shows that this clinical evaluation shows noticeable improvements to skin texture, laxity, and cellulite after their cooling sessions.
The new academic findings help award CoolSculpting the new, FDA-cleared treatment applicator. According to Allergan’s press release, CoolSculpting is the first and only non-surgical treatment ever to be FDA approved for improving lax tissue in conjunction with submental fat, or double chin, treatments.
As stated in a survey by the American Society of Dermatological Surgery (ASDS,) skin laxity and unwanted fat are significant worries for adults interested in cosmetic procedures. This explains the popularity of skin tightening surgeries such as a neck lift.
According to an Allergan representative, the FDA clearance permits CoolSculpting to address these concerns through “a non-invasive approach” that reduces fat and “improve[s] the appearance of lax tissue in the treated area.”
