New CoolSculpting applicator for Upper Arm Fat
CoolSculpting recently received FDA clearance for a new applicator, the CoolAdvantage Petite, which is specifically designed for reducing upper arm fat. The new applicator is scheduled to hit the market in mid 2017.
CoolSculpting does not tighten or lift skin, so it will not work for loose skin under your chin. Depending on the severity of skin laxity, you could consider a cosmetic surgery known as a lower rhytidectomy (neck lift.) For moderate “chin sag,” minimally invasive treatments such as Ultherapy or Thermage can lift or tighten loose skin. Ultherapy uses ultrasonic energy to lift skin and trigger collagen production. Most patients see results after one Ultherapy treatment, but two treatments may be recommended for optimal results.
If you have submental fat, or a double chin, and that is causing some sagging below your chin, than CoolSculpting may be an effective treatment. CoolSculpting offers an applicator known as the coolmini which is specifically designed to treat small areas of fat and is FDA cleared for reduction of submental fat.

Coolsculpting for Arms
Coolsculpting works very well on the arms for reducing fat in just one single treatment. Coolsculpting will not help with skin laxity. If you have both issues then you might require both Coolsculpting and Thermage to help resolve your concerns. Coolsculpting is done in the office and only requires an hour for each area treated. The most important consideration is choosing a board certified dermatologist who has a lot of experience with Coolsculpting and the applicators for the best cosmetic results.
