CoolMini Removes Double Chins
The CoolMini applicator that is now part of Zeltiq's CoolSculpting fat-removal system is an FDA-approved method of eliminating fat from underneath the chin. It
is fast, tends to be well-tolerated and has little to no downtime.
Please see a board-certified dermatologist to find out if you are a candidate for CoolMini.
CoolSculpting Has CoolMini for Double Chin
Zeltiq continues to innovate with their CoolSculpting system, which destroys fat cells by freezing them and sending them into apoptosis (cellular death). The FDA approved CoolMini applicator has been available since last year and is designed to fit under the chin and treat submental fat. It takes about three to four months for your body to eliminate the dead fat cells and for your optimal results to be visible. Consult a board-certified dermatologist to find out if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting.
The Cool Mini is used is to treat double chin.
Coolsculpting is an excellent form of non-invasive fat reduction for the right patient. Some applicators take 1 or 2 hours but the new advantage applicators take only 35 minutes and have significantly less risk for delayed onset pain (especially in the abdomen). Results are seen at 2 months and typically 1-3 treatments will be necessary on each area to achieve ideal results. The number of treatments depends on the amount of fat there and the patient's goals. There is not downtime and the results can be impressive in the right patient. We also use the Zimmer Z-wave for improved patient comfort and added results. The best candidates are those who are in pretty good shape with areas of stubborn fat that won't go away no matter what.

CoolSculpting For The Chin
New Coolsculpting Applicator for Neck?
Thank you for your question.
At this time, there is not a new applicator for the neck area. I do believe that the company is working on new applicators for new areas.
Best to visit their website to see the most updated information.
CoolSculpting for neck fat
There is no applicator yet, nor in the near future, for CoolSculpting of the neck fat. there may be in the future, though. Other treatments have been tried such as ultrasound, injections of bile salts, other energy sources,are still being explored but liposuction certainly has proven itself as a very good technique for this area.
Coolsculpting Not For Double Chin
CoolSculpting no yet applicable to double chin fat reduction - but may be coming
It is my understanding that the company is evaluating the effectiveness of a small cup applicator for this area, but it would be some time before it would be available..IF if were to be approved.
Outside of liposuction, at this time there is no other treatment specific to that area.
Thermage can provide some subtle tightening, but won't impact the amount of fat.
Coolsculpting for double chin
There is currently no way to perform cool sculpting on a neck - the applicator just won't fit!! The company is working on new applicators and areas to treat but nothing currently available. Liposuction or an open neck procedure is currently the best way to treat neck fat. The ulthera device and some of the radiofrequency devices may cause a little fat loss of the neck.
