It was only a matter of time! CoolMini™ is here to take down the dreaded double chin with CoolSculpting’s patented fat-freezing technology.
CoolMini – CoolSculpting For Your Double Chin
Treatments involve nothing more than applying the applicator to the under chin 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. Its 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.

What is CoolMini?
CoolMini is a specialized CoolSculpting® device designed to address stubborn fat under the chin, often referred to as a double chin. It uses advanced cooling technology to safely freeze and destroy fat cells, improving the contours of the neck and chin.
How Much Does CoolMini Cost?
The cost of CoolMini will depend on the number of treatments needed to produce the desired results. Some patients may achieve these results in a single treatment, while others may need several treatments. Fortunately, financing options make these treatments much more affordable.
How Long Does CoolMini Last?
The CoolMini treatment takes 60 minutes to complete. Although it causes some initial cold sensations in the skin, patients are generally able to relax throughout the duration of the treatment.
Is CoolSculpting® Better Than Kybella®?
CoolSculpting® and Kybella® are both effective treatment options for addressing the appearance of a double chin. However, CoolSculpting® with the CoolMini is generally better for larger patients. It also requires less downtime and is typically less expensive than Kybella® injections.
Is CoolMini Permanent?
The fat removed during the CoolMini treatment is permanently eliminated. However, CoolMini cannot prevent changes in the neck due to future weight gain. Patients are encouraged to maintain healthy diet and exercise habits in order to make their results last as long as possible.
If you have loose skin along your neck and jowls, you may not need surgery to correct the problem. La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic offers CoolMini treatments for men and women in San Diego, Encinitas, La Mesa, El Cajon, and surrounding areas of California. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
