In the past, the only way to get rid submental fat that causes jowls, double chins and neck wattles was to get liposuction or a neck lift. But now, with the expanded CoolSculpting FDA approval, this noninvasive procedure can be used to dissolve fat cells in the neck and under the chin quickly, easily and permanently. With CoolSculpting, these fatty deposits are literally chilled to death.
CoolSculpting received FDA approval for removing abdominal fat cells in 2010 and for removing thigh fat cells in 2014. However, with a new expanded FDA approval, certified aesthetic professionals can remove small, stubborn pockets of fat using a specialized applicator called the CoolMini to eliminate fat that collects under the chin.
The CoolMini applicator for the new CoolSculpting double chin procedure has been used in over two million treatments to date with amazing results that can rival even surgical liposuction treatments. A 20 percent reduction in chin fat can be achieved in one or two one-hour sessions. During the procedure, a licensed medical aesthetic provider applies the CoolMini applicator under the chin where the excess fat is frozen and allowed to die off and disappear by leaving through the body’s lymphatic system. Although the procedure itself is painless, there can be some minor swelling or slight bruising post treatment.
With the CoolMini, a licensed medical aesthetic provider uses controlled cooling to get rid of stubborn fat under the skin that cannot be corrected with diet or exercise. Because the procedure targets fat cells underneath the skin, the surface area of the skin is relatively unaffected by the procedure. After the fat cells have been frozen, they are naturally eliminated by the body. CoolMini fat removal treatments involve no downtime, and after the fat is frozen and eliminated, it won't come back.
FDA approval of the CoolMini applicator was granted based on a study of 60 male and female subjects between the ages of 22 and 65. According to the company, “no significant adverse events were observed, and patients experienced little to no discomfort or downtime.” Zeltiq, the makers of CoolSculpting, also reported that the subjects in the study saw noticeable improvement after three weeks and maximum improvement after three months.
CoolSculpting of the chin and neck with the CoolMini applicator is producing real results according to early users, stating that the procedure is equally effective on large and small fat pockets on the neck and chin. The procedure is safe, and patients say they are pleased with the results.
