What is the CoolMini Treatment
CoolSculpting is a ground-breaking way to contour your body by freezing and eliminating unwanted fat with no surgery or downtime (Cryolipolysis). It has proven itself as the world’s #1 non-invasive fat-reduction procedure for the body with over 2 million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide. So it was only a matter of time before the CoolMini was introduced as an innovative way to eliminate the dreaded double chin. Aging, weight, and genetics can all be factors for excess submental fat. With CoolMini, you can make sure that your double chin isn’t the single thing people see!
The treatment involves applying the special applicator to the fat under the chin area. The mechanism pulls the fat snugly into the applicator cup where cold plates reduce the temperature of the fat to its unique freezing point. The breakdown of fat cells begins and over 12 weeks, fat is naturally eliminated from the body. The cells aren’t shrunken, they are destroyed and your chin and neck will appear sculpted and more defined – no incisions and no risks of surgery. It takes a minimum of two treatments to achieve results, with treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, but once the fat is gone, it stays gone.
What should you expect after treatment?
The CoolMini treatment is a safe alternative to liposuction and other chin and jaw contouring procedures. In fact, there are no significant adverse effects, and patients experience little to no discomfort. After the treatment, you may experience slight swelling and numbness, which can last a few days. Early results may appear 3-4 weeks after treatment, but final results can take up to 3 months. It’s never been easier to get the profile you want without surgery!
How do you know if you are a good candidate?
Every person is unique, so we encourage our patients to come in for a consult. Our CoolSculpting experts can advise you as to if you are a good candidate for the procedure. We also offer Kybella injections for unwanted fat under the neck. As part of the complimentary consult, we will answer your questions and concerns and thoroughly help map out a treatment plan to see which is right for you. Keep in mind; CoolSculpting doesn’t tighten skin, its only effect is on fat, so if you have loose skin in that area, we may want to explore other options for firming skin tissue.
