Woman is in an aesthetic clinic and is preparing for her CoolSculpting inner thighs treatment.

A popular method to contour your body and reduce fat is CoolSculpting. This method is reliable and non-invasive, having shown effective results in targeting stubborn areas of fat storage, like the thighs.

If you want to change your body image or stimulate your body’s efforts to reduce areas of unwanted fat without surgery, you’re in the right place.

In this blog, we’ll explain what CoolSculpting is, what it involves and how long it takes for the CoolSculpting inner thigh, outer thigh and back of the thigh treatment to work.


What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting, also known as cryolipolysis, is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure designed to target and remove stubborn fat cells. The process involves using controlled cooling to freeze these fat cells, which then stimulates the body to destroy them completely.

This method has been FDA-approved since 2010 and has since become a popular choice for those looking to contour various areas of their bodies safely, including the thighs.


What Does the CoolSculpting for Thighs Treatment Involve?

The CoolSculpting procedure for thighs is relatively straightforward. It involves an initial consultation, preparation, applicator placement, cooling and a massage. In this section, we’ll explore what you can expect during a typical treatment session.


The Consultation

Your journey begins with a consultation with a CoolSculpting specialist. They will assess your thighs’ specific areas and discuss your goals to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the treatment.


The Preparation

Once you’re ready for the treatment, your aesthetic specialist will mark the target areas on your inner thighs where the applicators will be placed. Remember, there is nothing to be afraid of, as this is a non-invasive treatment and doesn’t include any incisions.


The Applicator Placement

CoolSculpting uses applicators that are attached to the treatment area using a gentle suction. For the inner thighs, smaller applicators are often used to target specific pockets of fat.


The Cooling

The applicators deliver controlled cooling areas of your thighs to freeze fat cells beneath the skin. This causes them to crystallise and eventually die. The process allows the body to draw attention to stubborn fat areas and force them to be eliminated. freeze fat cells


The Massage

After the cooling cycle, a brief massage or manual manipulation of the treated area may be performed to break up the frozen fat cells for better elimination.


Treatment Completion

A single treatment session typically lasts around 35 to 60 minutes per thigh. However, this depends entirely on the size of the thigh area and the number of applicants.


What Is The Treatment Time For CoolSculpting Thigh?

The CoolSculpting treatment time for thighs can vary based on several factors, including the size of the treatment area and the number of areas being treated. On average, each thigh can take around 35 to 60 minutes per session. However, for both inner and outer thighs, you might need more than one session to achieve your desired results.


Areas of the Thigh for CoolSculpting

Over the years, CoolSculpting has proven its effectiveness in targeting various fat areas of the thighs. In this section, we will explore how CoolScultping can help the outer thigh, inner thigh, or even the back of the thighs.


CoolSculpting on the Outer Thighs

The outer thighs, often referred to as saddlebags, are a common area of concern for many individuals. CoolSculpting can effectively target and reduce fat in this area, helping to create a smoother, more contoured appearance.


CoolSculpting on the Inner Thighs

The inner thighs are another area where fat tends to accumulate, leading to rubbing or chafing. CoolSculpting for inner thighs can address this issue by reducing excess fat and creating a more defined thigh gap or contour.


CoolSculpting on the Back of Thighs

The back of the thighs, sometimes called the “banana roll” area, can also benefit from CoolSculpting. This fat-freezing treatment can help reduce the appearance of bulges and create a slimmer profile from the buttocks down to the knees.


How Long Will It Take to Start Seeing Results?

After a CoolSculpting treatment, you are not likely to see drastic results. This process helps to achieve more natural-looking results; therefore, it’s completely normal for the results to gradually appear over several weeks to months.

Many people start noticing changes as early as three weeks post-treatment, with the most dramatic results visible around two to three months.

It’s essential to note that results vary from person to person, and multiple sessions might be recommended for optimal fat reduction. During your follow-up appointments, your CoolSculpting specialist will assess your progress and determine if additional treatments are needed to achieve your desired outcome.


Why is CoolSculpting Good for Thigh Fat Removal?

If you’re looking to target stubborn fat on the inner and outer thigh areas, CoolSculpting is a great solution. No matter the thigh shape or size, the CoolSculpting applicator can be customised to fit a range of thighs to ensure precise targeting of fat cells.

As opposed to surgical procedures, CoolScultping allows the body to naturally eliminate the treated fat cells over time, allowing for more realistic results.

As this treatment is non-surgical, it doesn’t require incisions, needles, or surgery. This means there is no painful recovery period, invasive procedures or lengthy waiting time, which makes it an attractive option.

While you may feel some initial cold and pressure during the treatment, it is generally well-tolerated by most individuals and provides minimal discomfort. There is little to no downtime so you can resume your daily activities immediately after the procedures.

I visited Dr Yusra’s clinic for non surgical rhinoplasty. I was so impressed with the whole experience from start to finish. Dr Yusra and her team were extremely professional, listening to my concerns and what I hoped to achieve from the procedure. I’d like to give a special mention to Lucy who looked after me pre and post treatment, she was so friendly, knowledgeable and made me feel completely at ease. I look forward to my next visit.

September 2023: I’ve been going to Dr Yusra’s clinic for the last nine months and can honestly say the change in my skin is so apparent that people on Teams calls at work tell me I’m glowing. Dr Lauren has been doing my skin treatments since May with Co2 laser (following secret pro with Olivia) and 3 rounds of subcision with skin boosters. Dr Lauren takes time to explain the science behind the treatments before we do them so I have a realistic idea of the healing and results process. Dr Yusra is also always on hand for any queries too and as soon as you enter the Liverpool clinic, you’re given such a warm and friendly greeting by the team. Despite it being far from me, it is without a doubt worth the drive to get high quality results. Update: I've had two sessions of SecretPro with Olivia and can see a huge difference in my skin so far. Olivia is so professional, patient and took the time to go through the process before and after treatment to ensure I was comfortable. Couldn't recommend Olivia and the team at Dr Yusra's enough! Having been to Dr Yusra’s clinic before, I’ve always found them to have a high standard of care. I’ve recently been in contact with Olivia to help me with the next stage of my skin journey and have been so happy with the helpful advice and assistance she’s given me. I decided to start treatment at Dr Yusra’s clinic because the treatments being offered are different to those I’ve seen elsewhere with really impressive results on other patients. I trust I’m in good hands and excited to continue this journey to finally sorting out my skin!!

I had 3 areas of Botox as well as masseter Botox with Dr Emily and she is so lovely, listens to any queries you have (even if you think it’s a silly question) and puts you at ease through your procedure. I have a lot of pain in my jaw when eating and grinding my teeth in my sleep, Dr Emily was able to talk me through the procedure for helping this and since having masseter Botox I haven’t had pain while eating and there’s no pain when I wake up. Would definite recommend the clinic and Dr Emily.

I went to see Dr. Emily for a non-surgical nose job, and I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. Dr. Emily was super caring and understanding, and she made me feel totally comfortable. The results are amazing, and I already feel so much more confident. I'd definitely recommend Dr. Emily – she's really awesome at what she does!

All I can say is you're in good hands here and I cannot recommend Dr Yusra’s clinic enough! all the staff members are so kind and accommodating cant wait to come back for more treatments x
I have had treatments from Dr Yusra and team over the past few years and despite having to travel quite a distance for this clinic it is 10000% worth the journey. They are careful and expert in the treatments they deliver, and I always feel in safe hands. I would like to thank Dr Emily especially, I have not visited a different clinician or clinic since first seeing her for my treatments and I am always very happy with the results. As well as being talented she is just lovely and a pleasure to visit.
