Cool sculpting might do more than reduce selective pockets of fat; it might also tighten and firm skin. A Los Angeles plastic surgeon said that two of his patients had achieved visible signs in the treated areas.
Research is now underway to obtain objective measurements of skin-firming and to analyze the results after Cool Sculpting. The achievement of skin-tightening might be the result of stimulated production of collagen, tissue compaction, fibrosis, or new formation of elastin.
The procedure, known as cryolipolysis, resulted in significant tightening and volume reduction in one of the plastic surgeon’s female patients after four months. With the second patient, also a female, skin laxity did not occur as a result of fat volume loss. Instead, after four months of treatment, the tighter skin adhered to her body’s new contours. Pronounced folds of skin, evident in pre-treatment pictures, were no longer visible.
At this point, however, it is not known how predictable the skin-firming results are, or how other factors such as skin condition, patient age, and the number of treatments may affect the possibility of skin-tightening occurring.
The only way to find out if you are a suitable candidate for Cool Sculpting is by scheduling a consultation with a doctor who performs it. Remember it is not designed to be a replacement for traditional liposuction – it is for isolated, small areas of fat.
