What’s not to like about CoolSculpting’s double chin treatment, CoolMini

Published on Oct 15th, 2015 by Jeffrey Dover

Until recently the only approach to treat what is medically known as submental fat, or more commonly referred to as a double chin, was surgical with liposuction and or a neck/facelift. Earlier this year, our Boston dermatologists announced one of the most exciting developments in cosmetic surgery: the FDA approval of Kybella for the treatment of full neck and submental fullness. Remarkably, another highly effective, completely non-surgical approach to treating the double chin, the CoolMini device by CoolSculpting, was just approved by the FDA in late September 2015. The CoolMini is the most advanced non-invasive fat reduction treatment dedicated for smaller areas such as the neck.

The CoolMini device by CoolSculpting is both safe and highly effective. The device is applied under the neck for one hour. One to three treatments give dramatic improvement of neck fullness and double chin with few if any side effects. With CoolMini, there are no needles or anesthetic needed, and the treatment is relatively comfortable. There is little discomfort, no swelling, no bruising, just redness which lasts a matter of minutes, and occasional numbness and a bit of tenderness afterwards. All these side effects are mild and short-lived. CoolMini treatments are effective in men and women of all skin colors and types, and a variety of ages.

The CoolMini device is the newest application using the trusted CoolSculpting® by ZELTIQ patented technology. The novel CoolSculpting technology uses a body contouring method called cryolipolysis. Essentially, when fat gets very cold (just above the freezing point), fat cells become irreparably damaged. The body recognizes these fat cells as “melted” and then removes them over time through natural processes. It can take two to four months to see the final result, and many patients benefit from a second treatment. Research shows that as much as 25% of your unwanted fat can be removed in a single CoolSculpting session.

Double chin treatments: Kybella vs. CoolMini

Both Kybella and CoolMini treatments were developed with the assistance of SkinCare Physicians’ dermatologists near Boston, and both procedures are revolutionizing our ability to treat double chin in a simple and effective manner. However, differences remain.

    Double chin could really be annoying! I know some people can get bothered easily with their double chin. Others are blessed to maintain the Y area or their jawline, while others have to work hard for it. Good to know some data about the available treatments for double chin. I’m sure many people would be happy to see your post.
