Coolsculpting for double chin?
Doctor Answers 17
Thank you for your question. The CoolMini is very effective in treating the fat under the chin. The treatment provides a 25% to 30% reduction of fat in the area. Most patients find that they need to do more than one treatment in the area. This would be determined with an in person consultation with a local physician. Good luck!
CoolSculpting for Improved Chin Profile
CoolSculpting has been FDA-cleared for the treatment of fat in the submental area (double chin), which can provide you with a more contoured neck and improved chin profile. The CoolMini applicator is excellent for destroying unwanted fat under the chin in a noninvasive manner; however, it is very important that you obtain an evaluation from a physician to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. There are a number of treatments for reducing fat under the chin (such as Kybella) and your provider will best be able to establish a personalized treatment plan.
One of the primary reasons patients choose CoolSculpting is because the fat cells that it destroys are gone for good. Your improved chin profile, if combined with exercise and a proper diet, should last for a significant period of time, and we have seen promising long-term results with our patients.
Cool Mini is great for double chin. However, in person evaluation is extremely important to decide if you are the perfect candidate for it. 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. 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 to get rid of that double chin
We provide several methods for reducing chin volume. Certainly Cool Sculpting's Coolmini works very well on patients and is generally permanent for the fat cells that have been destroyed.. We usually offer two or three CoolMini procedures for most patients We also offer Kybela which is an injection procedure repeated over three sessions Lastly we have an RF device which is minimally invasive,; a small probe is inserted into the chin and the fat is heated. Because we offer several choices we feel we can make the best assessment for what will be the most effective given the particular patients' circumstance. The good news is, double chins can usually be eliminated with today's technologies. Dr. Adrienne Stewart M.D. FAA D
