Age is an interesting element. As is often said, age is only a number. The real issue is how your health is and what type of fat you have? If your health is generally good and you have stubborn fat that is soft (e.g. not visceral firm fat), you certainly can have it removed with CoolSculpting. My husband is 67, is very fit, but had it done a couple of years ago to take off his stubborn love handles and loves the result.

Most CoolSculpting facilities have a free consultation. I would recommend trying to find a facility that has a doctor who is involved in the analysis as to whether or not you are a good candidate. Many of the med spas do not have doctors on-site. I would avoid these if you have any age-related health concerns.

At age 67, you are certainly fine to do Coolsculpting. The determining factors that define whether you are a candidate are: severity, location, type of problem, medical history, goals, and expectations. It would be
best to meet an expert in your area to discuss these issues.

I've had cellulite on my thighs since I was 14. I'm now 53. I workout regularly but can't get rid of it. About 2 years ago I saw a nearby doctor who used heat to treat it and it got worse. This issue causes me not to wear shorts in the summer, and it is a big embarrassment that I have had most of my life. Is there hope for me for this situation? Would CoolSculpting work?
