CoolSculpting: Freeze Away Your Double Chin With The CoolMini

CoolSculpting has become vastly popular over the past few years as a means for targeting stubborn fat pockets that accumulate in various areas of the body. But many do not realize that CoolSculpting has become the leading treatment for targeting that pesky double chin! This noninvasive treatment for targeting submental fat has become the ideal treatment due to the minimal discomfort and zero downtime.


How The CoolMini Treatment Works:


The CoolMini treatment implements cryolipolysis, a process that involves freezing of the fat cells without causing damage to the surrounding area. During the treatment, a device is placed on the target area and the skin is suctioned in. The device distributes an icy blast that freezes the fat cells. The fat cells are then extracted through the lymphatic system.


What To Expect During Treatment:


The CoolSculpting treatment typically lasts 45-60 minutes depending on the extent of the fat storage. During the treatment most patients experience mild discomfort (a cold stinging sensation), but this will subside as the area numbs.


In order to achieve ideal results, most patients find they need to do 3-4 treatments. These results will vary case-by-case, depending on the amount of fat stored in the area.


What To Expect After Treatment:


Numbness and redness after the procedure are normal, though the redness will diminish the day of the treatment. Numbness will gradually subside over a few weeks.


It’s important to note that CoolSculpting for the chin is solely for targeting fat cells in the region and is specific to decreasing a double chin. Please note that skin elasticity will be a factor in your results, as this treatment does not correct sagging skin. An alternative treatment, such as fractional lasering or a K-lift may be a better alternative for regaining a defined jawline.
