CoolSculpting can change your life by increasing your confidence in the shape of your body. FDA-cleared for the abdomen and flanks, it is a safe and effective treatment for unwanted body fat. Among the questions surrounding this treatment is the one of age. In our last blog, we explored the possibility of being too old for CoolSculpting. In this blog, we will address the possibility of being too young for this treatment.
There is no established age limit for CoolSculpting. Surgeons have seen great results treating patients as young as 18 years old. However, in order to have the treatment, you must qualify as a candidate and be able to give informed consent. Additionally, it is crucial that the motivation for such a procedure be clear and healthy. Meet with a board-certified plastic surgeon like our Dr. Schutte and discuss the treatment in depth.
It is important to remember that CoolSculpting gently kills fat cells underneath the skin. The cells freeze and die. Over time, your body eliminates these dead cells, and you see great results. Whereas an adult’s body has developed completely, a young adult’s body is still developing, and there is a chance that the young adult’s body will replace the dead cells with new ones, which would greatly lessen the effectiveness of the treatment.
