Does CoolSculpting Tighten Skin?

Does CoolSculpting tighten skin? This is a common question many potential CoolSculpting patients have for their technicians. As the popularity of the non-invasive fat freezing treatment continues to increase, so does the question of if the treatment improves skin laxity. Some patients worry about the potential for loose or sagging skin after fat loss. With invasive surgeries like liposuction, excess skin is a problem. However, with CoolSculpting, people enjoy optimal fat reduction and tightened skin.

The new FDA clearance now approves CoolSculpting for improving skin laxity in the submental region. The procedure provides a double solution for embarrassing chin and neck fat. Read on to learn more about CoolSculpting and the new FDA approval for skin tightening.

Benefits of CoolSculpting

  •  Safely and effectively reduces fat cells
  •  Non-surgical alternative to liposuction
  •  Non-invasive with minimal to no downtime
  •  Results look natural and last long
  • Treatments are virtually painless

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is the #1 non-invasive way to reduce fat cells. Treatments use Cryolipolysis, a calibrated cooling technology, to eliminate subcutaneous fat cells below the skin. This exposure to extreme cooling causes the fat cell membranes to crystallize and rupture, damaging the cell beyond repair. When the fat cell is damaged, it dies and processes out of the body naturally. CoolSculpting provides natural, lasting fat reduction.

In conjunction with fat reduction, CoolSculpting now improves lax skin for noticeable skin tightening effects post-treatment.

CoolSculpting Chin Before and After*

CoolSculpting before and after results on the chin show the impressive results this treatment has for both reducing fat and improving skin laxity. As with any cosmetic treatment, results may vary.* However, each patient achieves noticeable results when the treatment is conducted by the right professional.


CoolSculpting treatments effectively treat stubborn fat cells. These fat cells lurk below the skin’s surface. However, the treatment applicators gently suction the skin up and bring the fat cells to the surface, where they are exposed to a calibrated cooling. Cryolipolysis tackles fat cells without injuring the skin or surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting freezes subcutaneous fat, causing them to die. Over the several weeks after treatment, the cells die and process out of the body as a form of waste. Once they are removed, the fat cells never return or grow back. CoolSculpting provides a lasting fat reduction if the patient maintains a healthy weight and lifestyle.

Clinical Studies Prove CoolSculpting Tightens Skin

In recent studies, CoolSculpting is proven for tightening skin after a cooling treatment. In one such study, the “Study to Evaluate Non-Invasive Subcutaneous Fat Reduction in the Submental Area Using Cryolipolysis,” CoolSculpting patients receiving treatments in the chin and neck area. The patient results were as follows: “77%… showed improved appearance of lax tissue and 75%… reported their chin looked more toned following treatment.”

The data proves patients experienced impressive improvements to their skin, including an improvement in texture and laxity. These improvements were observed in the outer thighs, abdomen, arms, and back. The same study also shows that the evaluation shows noticeable improvements to skin texture, laxity, and even cellulite issues afterward.

CoolSculpting is not an acceptable treatment for everyone. There is a criterion to meet. The perfect candidate is a healthy adult struggling with bulges of fat that resist diet and exercise. If you question your candidacy, the best way to learn the answer is by scheduling a free consultation. During this consultation, you discuss if CoolSculpting is the correct method for reducing fat and sculpting a sleek physique. If CoolSculpting is right for you, a treatment specialist creates a treatment plan within your budget, achieving optimal results.

CoolSculpting is FDA Approved for Tightening Skin

According to the makers of the CoolSculpting machine, Allergan, the popular fat freezing technology is the first and only non-surgical treatment to gain FDA approval for improving skin laxity. Excess fat and loose skin are valid concerns for patients post fat reduction. This is why so many patients seek skin tightening surgeries like neck lifts after weight loss.

Thankfully, now CoolSculpting is FDA approved to reduce loose skin in the submental region.

Is CoolSculpting Permanent?

CoolSculpting results are long-term. Cooling sessions are unlike weight loss programs that only shrink fat cells. The process of Cryolipolysis physically metabolizes fat cells and exits them from the body as a form of waste. The cells never return. They can never grow back. It is important to note that excessive weight gain obscures fat reduction results. It is crucial to follow a healthy lifestyle to maintain results.

When Will I See My CoolSculpting Results?

After your cooling sessions, the body’s lymphatic system collects and processes the frozen fat cells out of the body over the course of several weeks. While individual experiences will vary*, some patients report seeing their fat reduction results in as little as 4 weeks. However, for most patients, CoolSculpting results typically take 8 to 12 weeks to show fully. It is easy to get impatient and want to see immediate results. However, most CoolSculpting patients appreciate that the procedure provides progressive results that appear naturally over time.
