What treatment, including Coolsculpting, is best for large sagging upper arms?
Your welcome! Sometimes when we all decide we want to fix a problem, we decide that it needs to be done in a hurry, even when the problem has been a problem for many years. A very human tendency. But sometimes, this can work against us and our long term goals.
In general, since it takes about 3 months to see the results from a Coolsculpting treatment, you may not be seeing the full results yet. Also, Coolsculpting makes no claim to skin tightening, but most of our patients, staff and myself see skin tightening with the CS procedure. I like that they don’t claim that as a result but almost everyone sees it.
If money is no object, there’s no harm in trying some of the others. I still think that Exilis has the best data on the body. But if money is important, then wait the full three months, and then consider doing another Coolsculpting if you have enough to fit in the adapter or with the new flat panel. Of all of the nonsurgical body contouring technologies, Coolsculpting is the most consistent and cost effective in its results.
Hope this helps, Dr. I
