Eliminating excess submental fat is only half the equation when trying to restore a youthful appearance. Aging skin can lose its elasticity, creating a saggy look. Once the excess fatty tissue is dissolved, less volume remains below the skin’s surface, which can then increase the droopiness of tissues. Unfortunately, while the unwanted fat is gone, skin will still hang below the chin, adding years onto the appearance. Is there any hope, aside from a surgical facelift procedure? Yes: with CoolSculpting!
Fighting Both Submental Fat and Lax Skin
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared CoolSculpting for eliminating submental fat, as well as for improving lax tissue along the chin. Not only does the noninvasive technique reduce fatty tissue under the jawline, a problem most often referred to as the ‘double chin’, but CoolSculpting strengthens the skin, encouraging elasticity, to eliminate the sagging, billowy tissue, as well. CoolSculpting is the first – and the only – noninvasive fat reduction system to be awarded FDA-clearance for reducing lax tissue during treatment for a double chin.
Using a controlled cooling system, called Cryoplipolysis, CoolSculpting freezes off fat cells. The frigid temperatures damage the fatty tissue, which is then metabolized by the body. In two to three months, patients will see up to a 25% reduction in fat and tighter skin. A second treatment can safely be performed, for even more ideal results.
When Treating a ‘Double Chin’, the Double Approach Will Double Results
When considering CoolSculpting for submental fat, consider it a double approach. One session not only reduces fatty tissue, but it also contours the chin, providing the best possible results without surgery. While other fat elimination treatments can provide some success with submental fat reduction, without addressing the lax skin, the chin may be left with soft, doughy tissue that still ages the face. CoolSculpting’s double-goodness means patients get the best of both worlds, with fat reduction and skin tightening abilities.
A recent 18-week clinical trial showed that 77% of patients showed a visible improvement in skin laxity. Up to ¾ of participants said their chin looking more toned and sculpted after their CoolSculpting experience. The results of this study are game-changers, as more than 73% of all people report frustration with submental fat.
