If we are being completely honest with ourselves, getting older means getting fatter. Even for people who eat well and get regular exercise, small areas of isolated fat tend to show up no matter what. One common trouble spot – the double chin. This puffy, protruding pocket of fat below the jawline takes away from youthful facial contours, but unfortunately, diet and exercise do little to erase this submental fat.
Forget About a Neck Lift or Liposuction
For generations, about the only way to put an end to the unattractive “rolls” of a double chin and subsequent “turkey neck” was an invasive surgical procedure like a necklift or semi-invasive liposuction. While these are excellent techniques for sculpting the jawline, these procedures mean moderate discomfort and require time away from work for recovery.
Double Down on Your Double Chin
Fast forward and you’ll find an innovative fat elimination technique that needs no incisions, causes little to no pain, and requires no downtime: CoolSculpting. The process works by dramatically cooling a small area of tissue, freezing fat cells. While the healthy tissue is not affected by the treatment process, targeted fat cells are susceptible to the cold temperatures and will die off over the next three to four months. The weeks following a CoolSculpting treatment will unveil a 25-30% reduction in fat.
Taking CoolSculpting to the next level is the CoolMini. This small, contoured applicator was designed especially for submental fat, under the chin. The cutting-edge handpiece is placed on the localized fat below the jawline, slowly lowering temperature and gently numbing the area. Patients are comfortable enough to watch TV or rest during the procedure, with no anesthesia necessary. In just 35 minutes, treatment with CoolSculpting CoolMini is complete and patients are free to return to their normal routine.
Consistent Results with the CoolMini
Just like with traditional CoolSculpting, the CoolMini will provide up to a 30% reduction in submental fat. For those patients looking for additional fat elimination, a second treatment can safely be performed.
The most important thing you can do to ensure consistent, effective double chin elimination with the CoolMini is to find an experienced, reputable CoolSculpting provider. Zeltiq, founder and maker of the noninvasive technique, oversees its very own CoolSculpting University in California. Here, providers can learn from the designers themselves, with classes in Cryolipolysis (the science of fat freezing, how to treat any area of the body, and troubleshooting. At Houston’s number one noninvasive practice, Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique, all of the CoolSculpting providers have extensive training, years of experience, and are graduates of the CoolSculpting University.
