CoolSculpting FAQ: Understanding Skin Laxity and Tightening

Embarking on a CoolSculpting journey often comes with questions about its effects on the skin. As the Dallas CoolSculpting Experts at Element Body Lab, we’re here to provide real answers to your pressing concerns. One of the most common queries we encounter is, “What happens to my skin during and after CoolSculpting? Does it tighten?” Today, we dive into the details to give you a comprehensive understanding.

Skin Tightening with CoolSculpting

The question of whether CoolSculpting tightens the skin doesn’t have a one-size-fits-all answer. While Allergan, the creators of CoolSculpting, received FDA clearance in 2019 for impacting the appearance of lax tissue in the double chin area, the same isn’t universally applicable to all body parts.

Also, the word “impact” doesn’t reflect negative or positive. The clients treated here at Element Body Lab discuss their goals and concerns during a consultation, during which our providers give feedback on the best options for treatment and whether CoolSculpting could cause any additional lax tissue.

Professional Insight: Our consultations are tailored discussions where we dissect your goals, and our experts elucidate how CoolSculpting may interact with your skin dynamics.

CoolSculpting’s Impact on SKin Texture:

Researchers, prompted by the noticeable changes in before-and-after photos, explored the impact of CoolSculpting on skin texture, laxity, and even cellulite. The surprising result coined as “cryodermadstringo” or skin tightening after cryolipolysis revealed that some patients experienced an improvement in skin quality.

It’s not a universal phenomenon, but a considerable number of our patients revel in an improved skin narrative. Explore the tangible evidence in our CoolSculpting before-and-after portfolio!

Customized Advice for Skin Laxity:

As with any aspect of CoolSculpting, including its cost, the advice regarding skin tightening is customized based on your unique body and anatomy. At Element Body Lab, our CoolSculpting Experts in Dallas can guide you through the process, discussing potential skin improvements based on your age and current skin quality.

Should you worry about Skin Laxity?

While CoolSculpting clients at Element Body Lab often notice enhanced skin texture and laxity after treatment, it’s not a guaranteed outcome. The cooling effect of cryolipolysis may stimulate collagen production, contributing to these positive effects, but individual responses vary. If your primary goal is addressing loose or lax skin, CoolSculpting might not be the ideal solution.

What can you do to help with lax tissue after CoolSculpting?

We provide ample advice for recovery after CoolSculpting, and also send all of our clients home with a bottle of Alastin TransFORM Body Treatment, a topical cream to be used twice per day to aid in skin laxity and the retraction of skin after a CoolSculpting treatment.
