Say goodbye to your double chin without surgery or downtime!Coolsculpting has become highly popular over the past year, due to the fact that it is unlike any other treatment that removes fat. The procedure does not require any surgery or needles, using an applicator instead to freeze fat cells that you want removed. Because the fat cells crystallize faster than normal cells, there is no damage to skin, nerves or other surrounding tissue. Over 12 weeks, the cells continue to break down and are naturally flushed from your body. Once they are gone, they are gone for good. Many people that undergo this procedure, tend to get their chins and necks done. A study showed that over 75% of people who had coolsculpting done on their double chins saw immense results, with their chin fat nearly disappearing.

The procedure does not take too long, lasting about 30 minutes to an hour per area getting treated. The good thing about getting the procedure done, is that it does not require a long recovery period at all, in fact, most patients can go back to their daily routines almost immediately after their surgery.
