It was only a matter of time! CoolMini™ is here to take down the dreaded double chin with CoolSculpting’s patented fat freezing technology.
Cryolipolysis (fat freezing) has proven itself time and time again with over 2 million CoolSculpting treatments for the body. Patients asked “When will it be used for double chins??” since the initial launch of CoolSculpting. Now it’s here. Call La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic at 858-454-2700 to learn more.
CoolMini – CoolSculpting for Your Double Chin
Treatments involve nothing more than applying the applicator to the underchin fat. The system pulls the fat snugly into the applicator cup where cold plates reduce the temperature of the fat to its unique freezing point. Fat cell breakdown begins and over the next 12 weeks the fat is eliminated by the body’s natural sweep mechanism.
The fat, once gone, stays gone. The cells aren’t shrunken, they’re destroyed by the process. Your skin is protected by a special gel sheet. In an hour, the treatment is over.
Unlike liposuction, there are no incisions and no surgical risks.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
The photos we have access to show patients after 2 sessions. Whether or not you need more than one session will depend upon how much fat distribution you have in the area. The applicator must be able to “grab” enough fat to come into contact with the cooling plates. Very minor fat under the chin may be more amenable to other treatments.
Will CoolMini Tighten Loose Skin?
Fat freezing doesn’t tighten skin. It’s only effect is on fat. If you already experience loose skin, there are multiple other options for firming skin tissue and this can easily be addressed when your CoolMini treatment process is complete.
Expect a little numbness, reddening and possibly some swelling and/or bruising. You are not required to undertake any special post treatment steps.
Am I a Candidate?
As with any medical procedure, you’ll need to meet with one of our medical team for an assessment. CoolMini will be appropriate for nearly anyone with sufficient submental fat to be drawn into the applicator.
