Does CoolSculpting Work for the Inner Knees?

CoolSculpting is a unique and exciting treatment, which actually melts flat off of localized areas of the body.  CoolSculpting uses a technology called cryolipolysis, which essentially freezes the fat cells, so that they can be flushed out by the body's immune system.  CoolSculpting has traditionally been used for treatment of excess fat on the abdomen.  However, after a successful treatment of excess abdomen fat, many of our patients inquire where else on their body they can have CoolSculpting. Dr. Schweiger explains that, "Zeltiq CoolSculpting is most commonly performed for the upper abdomen, lower abdomen, 'bra bulge', and 'love handles.'  Many people have excess fat in these areas and experience excellent results after CoolSculpting treatment; they then inquire as to which other areas of the body can be treated.  Currently, there are only two sizes of CoolSculpting treatment pieces.  As a result, we can only treat areas that have enough excess fat to attach to the treatment piece.  The specific areas that can be treated vary from person to person.  We have treated inner thighs,  inner knees, arms, and chests." If you are interested in treating the inner knees, it is recommended that you schedule a consult to determine whether you are an appropriate candidate for treatment of this area.  If you have enough excess fat to fill the treatment piece, then the area can be treated.  Treatment of a bilateral area, such as the inner knees, takes only two hours - each inner knee area is treated individually and takes exactly one hour to complete.
