Does Fat Freezing help with Skin Tightening?

Although fat freezing (a.k.a. Cryolipolysis or Coolsculpting) is not the first course of action when someone is looking for skin tightening treatments, as you can see from the above image, most people experience skin tightening after fat freezing. This is due to a combination of factors, mainly however due to the lack of weight from fat in the treated tissue.

The lady in the above image had quite a significant lift in her lower abdomen after fat freezing – in our Beautiful Body Clinic (Moorabbin) – due to the reduced fat cells from the treatment. These photos were taken 12 weeks after her treatment. The texture of the skin has not really changed however by removing the weight now, will give her best outcomes for the skin in the area in the coming years. The less drag down now means the more chance of her skin retracting over time and as she ages. The condition of the skin prior to fat freezing treatment needs to be considered when assessing the type of tightening that will occur.

For even further skin tightening and lifting and reduction of stretch marks, our recommendation for this client after her fat freezing treatment is Microneedling with Radio Frequency. Microneedling with RF is a new treatment modality we have introduced into the clinic. This treatment is the gold standard in skin tightening and remodeling and can be used on all areas of the body. 

The microneedling will disrupt the scarred tissue with the penetration of the tiny needles, and then with the pulse of radio frequency energy, the underlying cells will be stimulated to produce more collagen and elastin creating tighter and lifted skin with more even skin texture. Skin tightening, like fat freezing, takes time to see the full results as we are relying on your body to create these naturally occurring proteins (collagen and elastin) which slowly diminish as we age. We stimulate the release of these proteins through the specific damage via the microneedles and radio frequency pulse.
