After it was approved by the FDA in 2010, CoolSculpting quickly gained recognition as one of the most effective and versatile body sculpting methods in the cosmetic industry. The innovative non-surgical fat-freezing method sidesteps invasive incisions, anesthesia and lengthy recovery times, offering painless and quick relief from burdensome love handles, muffintops, other unsightly fat deposits that plague the torso.
Unfortunately, the traditional CoolSculpting panels used to strategically target and eliminate fat cells in the abdomen, hips and thighs are too cumbersome to treat more subtle areas such as the jowls, chin or lower cheeks. Yet these regions are similarly prone to stubborn fat while remaining intensely resistant to diet and exercise.
The CoolMini is the newest CoolSculpting applicator, recently approved for contouring pockets of submental fat. Less invasive than both Kybella and liposuction, the CoolMini uses a custom fitted hand-piece to administer cryolipolysis to that pesky fat buildup under the chin, resulting in a leaner, more attractive profile with greater overall definition. The CoolMini can also seamlessly sculpt the lower jaw, cheeks, axilla and bra rolls.
When you arrive at Lasky for your initial confidential consultation, you will immediately find yourself at ease in our cozy, comfortable Beverly Hills office suite where you will be greeted by our friendly, knowledgable staff. Your doctor will then work with you to create a personalized treatment plan deigned specifically for your unique trouble spots and lifestyle needs.
After exploring before and after photographs as well as 3D imaging, the physician will assess your medical history, allergies to medications, previous surgeries and procedures, and answer any questions or concerns you may have. It’s important to understand that the CoolMini is not a weight loss device and that in general, CoolSculpting is not a solution for obesity.
Just like CoolSculpting, the CoolMini delivers a steady stream of cold energy to the underlying fat pockets, flooding the fat cells with ice crystals that ultimately destroy them. The surrounding healthy skin and muscle stays entirely unharmed during the process. After the fat cells suffer apoptosis (cell demise), the body discards them as part of its natural elimination process, resulting in more streamlined contours.
Treatment with the CoolMini typically takes up to one hour. Your doctor covers the skin with protective gel pads, after which a rounded applicator is gently applied to the target sites where it snugly suctions the skin between miniature cooling panels. The subcutaneous fat cells are then frozen to the point of apoptosis, and begin their journey out of the body through a natural immune reaction. You can listen to music, nap or watch TV during the process, and clients can return to work or other activities immediately after they leave.
With the CoolMini, Beverly Hills Lasky patients experience minimal side effects or discomfort. There may be slight swelling, redness or tingling, but these tend to resolve within a day or so.
Results are usually visible with 21 days. As the fat cells continue to be gradually flushed out of the body, a more dramatic outcome will emerge at around 2-3 months post-procedure. While one session may provide all the improvement required, clients can opt to repeat the CoolMini procedure, as long as they wait at least 8 weeks between treatments.
