Reducing Inner And Outer Thigh Fat With CoolSculpting

If you eat more calories than you can burn, your body needs to store those additional calories somewhere since they aren't being used. That's where fat comes into play. Based on a study, it was found that body fat storage is highly influenced by genetic factors, especially in women. Women usually store fat in their hips, lower belly, and thighs. While men carry fat mainly in their abdomens, but are not completely off the hook with inner thigh and outer thigh fat either.

So can CoolSculpting thighs help reduce the excess fat in your thighs? Yes, CoolSculpting is a great option for men and women who want to slim down stubborn fat along their thighs. The fat reduction results of a CoolSculpting treatment in the thigh can take anywhere between three weeks and three months, depending on your metabolism. Patients can expect a reduction of between 20 and 25% of the treated fat cells with each round of treatment.

Contouring Thighs With CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment that uses the application of carefully controlled low temperatures to freeze fat beneath the skin. It can target stubborn fat in typical problem areas where it often collects, including both inner and outer thighs, but it also works on the lower abdomen, love handles, butt, and chin.

You cannot spot train away inner thigh fat. If you are getting impatient by not seeing the results you want from these activities, a CoolSculpting treatment will help.

Does CoolSculpting Procedure Work On Thighs?

As you lose or gain weight, you do not necessarily lose or create new fat cells; instead, the fat cells in your body become smaller or bigger. This is why even those who are careful about their weight and exercise can sometimes struggle with pockets of unwanted fat.

For people who have a long history of dealing with excess thigh fat, CoolSculpting might be the best solution for you. CoolSculpting helps patients with thigh fat in two ways. First by reducing the size and the curve of the outer thigh, and next is by smoothing away the bumps, waves. These bumps and waves are fat cells beneath the skin. By freezing and eliminating the outer thigh's fat cells, the bumps and waves are the first to go as soon as results start to show. This is a step closer to achieve an inner thigh gap.

How Does It Work?

The process of CoolSculpting inner thighs is simple, quick, and painless.  The treatment itself is administered by professionals using a specialized CoolSculpting device. A gel pad is placed on the inner thigh to protect the skin. An applicator that looks a little like the nozzle of a vacuum cleaner is used to administer suction to the area of treatment, while paddles on the apparatus administer temperatures cold enough to freeze subcutaneous fat beneath the skin but not so cold as to damage the skin or other surrounding tissue. The applicator used is specially made to work on the inner thigh and is used to administer cooling beneath the dermis, targeting the pinchable fat of the thigh and freezing away the fat cells.

CoolSculpting for thighs is a non-invasive treatment that takes roughly 35 minutes per thigh. 35 minutes for either the inner or outer thigh. If you plan to have both inner and outer thighs treated on both legs, the total time will be more or less 2 hours.

Can It Eliminate The Fat In My Inner and Outer Thighs?

CoolSculpting is highly beneficial for reducing fat cells from stubborn bulges on the inner thigh. Along with targeting fat on the inner area, CoolSculpting works incredibly well on the outer thigh. This is the only nonsurgical and FDA-approved treatment for visible fat reduction, delivers proven results without needles, surgery, anesthesia, or downtime.

The CoolSculpting applicator for the inner thighs is known as the CoolFit, which works best for areas that are larger as it has longer cooling plates. While other coolfit applicator involves pinching the skin in the treatment area into the device to freeze it, the applicator for the inner thighs can work simply by being pressed on the skin.

The outer thighs also require a specialized applicator. The outer thigh applicator is flat, making it better than round or curved applicators for areas of large flat skin that cannot necessarily be pinched. Areas that can be pinched include the abdomen and love handles.

CoolSculpting removes fat from the outer thigh area in the same way it works on the inner thigh. The only difference is the placement of the gel pad and applicator. For optimum results, your physician will likely recommend that you adopt an exercise program or get involved with a physical activity that focuses on the upper legs and maintain a healthy diet.

Causes Of Inner and Outer Thigh Fat

The thighs are a common area for women to store stubborn fat. This phenomenon is known as "sex-specific-fat," and it is a notorious problem for women. Excess inner and external thigh fat can form when you take in more calories than your body can use or burn off from exercise. Female hormones, mostly estrogen, direct fat to accumulate in the thighs, buttocks, and pelvis area. 

Listed below are some of the common causes of fat in the inner and outer thigh.

1. High Levels Of Estrogen 

The legs, mainly the thighs, have a large number of estrogen receptors which bind with high affinity to estrogens. When too many poor food and lifestyle choices occur over a period of time there is an increase in the fat storing form of Estrogen known as Estradiol. This hormonal imbalance can create a large amount of fat deposits around the thighs, hips and bum.

2. Larger Pelvis

Excess fat on the thigh occurs due to the accumulation of fat deposits on the hip, thigh, and buttocks. Women have larger pelvis than men to accommodate childbirth. Fats in the pelvic area also provide cushion and protection. However, some women have excess fat deposition, which gives an unshapely appearance to their thighs.

3. Lack Of Activities

If you don't move much and sit the whole day, much of your blood circulation becomes slow, leading to the accumulation of fat and development of cellulite. Steady state cardio exercises such as walking are a great way to reduce overall fat on the body, therefore it can help reduce fat in the inner thighs. Combine a mix of cardio exercises such as walking or riding a bike, and strength exercises such as squats and lunges to create an overall plan for the thighs to be healthy and fit. 

4. Lower Back Problems

Some studies show there's a link between thigh fat and lower back issues. Your spine should have a natural low back curve so your posture and lower back issues could be causing the accumulation of fat in your inner or outer thighs.

5. Genetics

Heredity affects your susceptibility to gaining weight in your thighs. Body fat has a strong genetic component. If your mother has thigh fat, you are much more likely to have thigh fat deposition. What you eat can greatly influence which genes are expressed and which are not.

Is CoolSculpting For Thighs Effective?

Yes, the results of CoolSculpting treatment for thighs have been proven for stubborn fat bulges. The effects of the CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure are not instant, but you should see a noticeable reduction over 2 to 3 months. Over the following weeks, your body will remove dead fat cells and metabolize them. The result will be slender and toned thighs. 

The outcome achieved with CoolSculpting will last you a long time. Once the fat cells are frozen and destroyed, these fat cells are permanently destroyed. If you gain weight again, the remaining fat cells will expand, but they won't have the destroyed ones to expand along with them. The best way to maximize your results and keep them looking great is to eat healthy and be active.

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."
