What Skin Tightening Treatment Can You Combine with CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is one of the most convenient body contouring solutions compared to liposuction, which requires general anesthesia and lengthy downtime. Also unlike liposuction, it may not leave you with a sagging skin because its removal of stubborn fat is gradual, but this solution only does little to tighten your skin, either. That’s why some patients prefer to pair it with other skin tightening treatments for more dramatic results.

So what skin tightening treatment can you combine with CoolSculpting? Some of the common skin tightening procedures are Ultherapy and Thermage. Both treatments are FDA approved for stimulating collagen production to tighten skin – Ultherapy uses ultrasound waves, while Thermage uses radiofrequency energy. These solutions are pretty reliable for addressing skin laxity, with differences in the depth of the skin they target and the recommended treatment area.

Recommended Skin Tightening Procedures in Combination With CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved nonsurgical fat reduction treatment, removing stubborn fat cells resistant to diet and exercise. When it comes to body sculpting procedures, the excess skin from the sudden absence of subcutaneous fat has always been one of the patients' concerns. 

The CoolSculpting results are gradual, so patients shouldn't worry much about loose skin. But some also opt to combine the CoolSculpting procedure with other skin tightening treatments for better results. Some of the solutions that patients combine with it are Ultherapy and Thermage.

1) Ultherapy

Ultherapy is one of the treatments that may resolve skin laxity. Because of this, it's also a suitable combination with your CoolSculpting procedure. This FDA-approved nonsurgical cosmetic treatment uses focused ultrasound waves to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin and bypass superficial layers, designed to give you more elastic skin. Because of its technology of addressing deeper layers, the treatment areas it can cover are:

  • browline
  • chin
  • face
  • neck
  • chest

This ultrasound technology stimulates elastin and collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin. It’s also more suitable for localized or more focused treatment areas.

2) Thermage

Thermage is an FDA-approved nonsurgical procedure you can pair with your CoolSculpting treatment to tighten sagging skin, on top of eliminating unwanted fat. It's designed to lift the skin and resolve skin laxity by using radiofrequency energy to promote collagen production. Thermage can cover a wider treated area, suitable for the following:

  • eye area
  • face
  • thighs
  • abdomen

The radiofrequency energy treats your outer skin that reaches the dermis and the layer of your subcutaneous fat. Because of this, it can cover a wider treatment area. It's also suitable for reducing the appearance of every acne scar.

How CoolSculpting Works

To know other cosmetic solutions suitable for combining with your CoolSculpting treatment, you should first know how this works, like how its fat freezing technology promotes body sculpting and if this leaves you with sagging skin like some fat removal treatments.

How It Removes Excess Fat

CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical body contouring solution that uses controlled cooling technology to reshape the body, a process called cryolipolysis. This treatment freezes unwanted fat cells to promote cell death. The frozen excess fat will then be flushed from the body naturally.

Your CoolSculpting treatment can induce its fat freezing technology on the following treatment areas:

While CoolSculpting may eliminate excess fat, it's not considered a weight loss solution. This is only a body contouring treatment that can define your curves, but it doesn't provide a significant weight reduction. But getting rid of unwanted fat can serve as an inspiration for patients to work for their ideal weight and body goals.

Will CoolSculpting Cause Loose Skin?

Your CoolSculpting results involving fat reduction and body sculpting show up gradually. Because of this, the chances that the procedure will leave you with unflattering excess skin are pretty slim. It may take weeks or months for the body to flush out the dead fat cells, so the skin on the treated area might have enough time to retract.

Why Combine CoolSculpting with Another SkinTightening Treatment?

Thermage and Ultherapy are some skin tightening treatments you can combine with CoolSculpting. Patients of these procedures have reported positive results, but combining them can produce dramatic effects for achieving your aesthetic goals. 

While CoolSculpting may not leave you with sagging skin, it's also not guaranteed to provide skin tightening effects. That's why patients combine it with other solutions with the guidance of their medical aesthetic practitioner.

Using CoolSculpting and Thermage Together

Thermage is one of the skin tightening solutions most practitioners combine with CoolSculpting, providing patients with more noticeable results. You should know more about how it complements CoolSculpting, the results to expect, and when you can have the session.

How Thermage Complements CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting and Thermage may highlight your contours as it removes stubborn fat and smoothens excess skin. This combination may leave you with a youthful appearance and a flattering lift without plastic surgery. A patient worrying about tummy tuck may achieve a more toned and defined belly by relying on CoolSculpting to remove unwanted fat cells and Thermage to make your skin tighter and improve skin elasticity.

What to Expect from Your Thermage and CoolSculpting Procedure

Thermage and CoolSculpting are both nonsurgical procedures, so patients can expect minimal downtime – they can resume their normal activities shortly with only a few restrictions. You may also need multiple treatment sessions to achieve your desired results. Your CoolSculpting procedure only lasts for around 30 to 60 minutes. Thermage also has a similar treatment time.

How Long After CoolSculpting Can I Have Thermage Treatment?

CoolSculpting and Thermage may be done on the same day, but you might want to consult your medical aesthetic practitioner for the best treatment plan and which procedure should come first before the other. Some experts prefer doing CoolSculpting first, while some perform Thermage. It's worth noting that patients are discouraged from coming into contact with heat after their CoolSculpting treatment.

Using CoolSculpting and Ultherapy Together

Ultherapy is another skin tightening treatment you can combine with CoolSculpting, as it penetrates deeper layers of the skin for a lift from within. To know how Ultherapy is suitable to combine with Ultherapy, you must learn about how they complement each other, what to expect, and when you can have both procedures.

How Ultherapy Complements CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting and Ultherapy also complement each other in improving your contours and leaving you with a youthful appearance. CoolSculpting can remove stubborn fat bulges as a nonsurgical fat reduction treatment.

On the other hand, Ultherapy can penetrate deeper layers of the skin with ultrasound waves that stimulate elastin and collagen production. A patient worrying about a double chin may achieve a nonsurgical facelift by relying on CoolSculpting to remove unwanted fat cells and Ultherapy to tighten skin.

What to Expect from Your Ultherapy and CoolSculpting Procedure

Ultherapy may also be combined with your fat reduction treatment involving CoolSculpting. If you have existing loose skin, this skin tightening treatment may help resolve this and give you tighter skin. Patients also don't need to wait for lengthy downtime because these procedures have a minimal recovery period. You can expect your CoolSculpting session to last for around 30 to 60 minutes, while your Ultherapy may last for 30 to 90 minutes.

How Long After CoolSculpting Can I Have Ultherapy

You may combine Ultherapy with CoolSculpting, but you may not have the same treatment session on the same day. Some medical aesthetic practitioners recommend finishing a few sessions of CoolSculpting first to remove the subcutaneous fat. This also allows the practitioner to have an idea about the condition of your skin laxity.

CoolSculpting removes unwanted fat bulges with its fat freezing technology. While it doesn’t leave you with loose skin common in some fat reduction solutions, like liposuction, it also doesn’t guarantee to resolve existing skin laxity. Because of this, patients combine it with other skin tightening treatments, like Ultherapy and Thermage – these resolve skin laxity by stimulating elastin and collagen production.

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "The treatment itself was not uncomfortable. Afterwords, I felt great. I didn't really notice anything for about 30 days. After day 30 until about a month later, I started noticing that my favorite jeans were not as tight anymore. I wasn't having to suck in to get them buttoned. And by that two month period after my CoolSculpting

  • "It's subtle at first, and then a month later you look and go, "Wow - It really did something!" It really moved the bar for me, and I'm feeling better about myself already. It feels so good to put on anything and know I look as good as I've ever looked. And I didn't say that or feel that when I was in my 20's, 30's, and 40's."
