Often after losing weight, you can have stubborn areas of fat. It seems that no matter how much you diet or exercise, they just won’t go away. One of the most annoying is the layer of subcutaneous fat around the neck that sags down and creates a double chin. Because the double chin impacts your face, your most individual feature, it can affect your entire self-image.
A cosmetic surgeon can remove the fat pad under the chin and shorten the muscles under the jaw to eliminate the double chin. As with any surgery, there can be complications and it takes some time for incisions to heal. Of course you are anxious to get rid of your double chin but why have surgery if you don’t have too?
A New Solution – The CoolMini
While it has been successfully used on stubborn fat in other areas of the body, CoolSculpting technology now offers a non-surgical alternative for reducing or even eliminating your double chin. The CoolMini makes this technology available with a smaller applicator appropriate for use around the face. With this non-invasive fat reduction treatment, you can see results in 1 -2 visits and it requires no needles, surgery or downtime. What could be easier?
Anyone who is dealing with stubborn fat creating a double chin may be able to benefit from CoolSculpting treatments administered with the CoolMini. Men and women of any age or ethnicity who are in reasonably good health and have realistic expectations for their results are ideal candidates. There is a consultation before beginning any treatments to determine if the CoolMini is appropriate. The purpose of this consultation is for you to receive a professional analysis of results you can expect with CoolSculpting.
The Science Behind CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting uses ultra-cold temperatures to destroy layers of fat cells below the skin’s surface. It utilizes a remarkable technique called cryolipolysis that freezes fat cells, causing them to die and gradually be eliminated by the body. Healthy skin and other tissue in the area is unaffected by CoolSculpting. Unlike traditional treatments for the chin area, the CoolMini is able to target and eliminate excess fatty tissue non-invasively and recovery is very minimal.
Is CoolSculpting Painful?
Most patients report feeling a slight pulling sensation and chill at first. The area being treated will quickly become numb and there is no pain, therefore no anesthesia is necessary. You will be able to talk, read, or use your phone while receiving the treatment. You may have a slight itchy sensation once the treatment is completed.
Since the cryolipolysis technology utilized by CoolSculpting works by causing the fat cells to slowly die off and be metabolized by the body, visible results are not immediate. Typically a patient will begin to see a diminishment in their double chin a few weeks after treatment. It can take up to four months to see complete results and some patients may require a second treatment. The results will be permanent because the CoolMini actually destroys the fat cells in the area. It does not prevent new fat cells from developing. Only proper diet and exercise will help to fully maintain the results. In a recent clinical study using the CoolMini, 83% of patients were satisfied with their results and 8 out of 10 would recommend CoolSculpting with the CoolMini.
