Coolsculpting Mini and Number of Treatments
The best way to see if you are really a candidate for the Cool-mini is to have an in patient evaluation. If you are a good candidate it should definitely will improve after each treatment. If you have excessive skin laxity then you will need a skin tightening or surgical procedure. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
Coolsculpting submental fat
We always do 2 treatments under the chin about 6 weeks apart. You should still get good results after 5 months.
Usually two CoolSculpting treatments are recommended for the submental area, as this is what the studies show to have more desirable results. Every CoolSculpting treatment kills about 20-25% of the fat cells in the area, so each individual is different on the amount of treatments they need to reach their goals. The CoolSculpting treatments tend to help tighten the skin some, but sometimes if the skin already has some laxity, it will still have that after the CoolSculpting treatment. Make sure to see a CoolSculpting Specialist and a Board Certified plastic surgeon to see what your best options are. Also, it is fine if you have time in-between treatments, since the procedure treats whatever subcutaneous fat it pulls into the applicator.
Two treatments recommended for CoolSculpting under the chin
Two treatments are typically recommended for patients who undergo CoolSculpting treatments under the chin. Optimal results are typically seen 3 months after the second treatment. And while CoolSculpting targets fat under the chin, some patients also benefit from some tightening of the skin as well.
Coolsculpting and one treatment
Coolsculpting can help the adipose tissue in the submental area, however it is recommend that you have 2 treatments in the area for the optimal results. Also you will typically see the final results 3 months post your 2nd treatment. Also keep in mind coolsculpting wis intended to get rid of fat, not tighten the skin. I would consult with my provider as to what will provide you your desired outcome.
Thank you for your question. I am sorry to hear about your concerns. I would recommend to followup with your provider. Typically at least 2 treatments or more are recommend.
Retreating with CoolSculpting
Thank you for the question, when treating the segmental "double chin" most patients require 2-3 treatments to see best results in fat reduction. At our practice we do require a pt to wait approx. 4-6 week before retreating. Keep in mind, when treating with CoolSculpting you are reducing the FAT in that area, CoolSculpting does not tighten the skin. The appearance of lose skin may ultimately be your concern. However, it is never too late to retreat with CoolSculpting.
Everyone that does CoolSculpting for the double chin using the CoolMini applicator will need 2-3 treatments to see optimal results. The results after the first treatment can often be minimal and subtle, but further improvement occurs after the 2nd treatment. It's important not to become discouraged after the first treatment. We typically space treatments 6 weeks apart, but even after 5 months it's not too late to do another treatment. Remember, though, that CoolSculpting is a treatment for fat and it will not have much of an effect on the loose skin under the chin. For best results you may want to combine your CoolMini treatment with a skin tightening treatment. Hope this helps answer your question.
Dear migher:You should definitely see further reduction in fat with another CoolMini treatment. Most patients require two or three treatments to see really significant reductions in fat with CoolMini. Might I suggest you see a provider who performs both #CoolSculpting and #Kybella. I see you have some laxity as well and with a Kybella treatment you often see tightening in addition to reduction in fat.All the best, Dr. Clark
Cool mini needs two treatment sessions
Hi! It is definitely not too late to have another cycle performed. Just remember - the machine will only get rid of the fat, not the loose skin. Good luck!
