Can I use Coolsculpting for knee fat?
In 2015 Coolsculpting launched the new ‘CoolMini™ applicator’. The smaller applicator works exactly the same way as the original larger applicators with controlled cooling and suction. They are just a scaled-down version specifically designed to treat smaller hard to reach places. Problem areas such as knee fat can now be precisely targeted to remove fat and to reduce unwanted saggy skin.
Coolsculpting is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat freezing (cryolipolysis) treatment.
Fat can be attracted around the knees due to the large number of insulin receptors found there. Hormonal changes during pregnancy or menopause can also contribute fat to knee. Genes also play a big part in this. Many people can have smaller fatty deposits in specific areas like the knee while fat levels everywhere else is at a normal level.
Having noticeable knee fat can make you more self-conscious about wearing certain items of clothing like swimming costumes, shorts or above the knee skirts.
Coolsculpting knees using the new mini applicator only takes 35 minutes. Fat cells are permanently destroyed and naturally removed from the body over the months following your treatment. One Coolsculpting session should be enough for most people.
