If cool sculpting is performed by expert physician, then it is safe for the chin area with out any complications regarding the thyroid. 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 mini and thyroid gland risk?
Thank you for your question. CoolSculpting will not effect the thyroid gland. Ensure that you are evaluated by an expert.
No, CoolSculpting mini will not negatively effect the thyroid gland when used for submental fat reduction when used by a properly trained provider. The applicator is placed under the chin in the submental region, which is away from the thyroid gland.
Coolsculpting / CoolMini and Thyroid Gland
Coolsculping has no effect on the thyroid gland. I suggest you see an expert for treatment and evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer.
When treating the double chin the CoolMini applicator is placed just underneath the chin (called submental area). This is above and away from the Thyroid. In the right hands the procedure is extremely safe. Please find an experienced provider for your treatments. Best wishes.

Coolmini and Thyroid risks
There handpiece is placed much higher than the thyroid gland. It should be of no concern with the treatment. I would proceed without fear.
Good question! This device is designed to treat the submental area, that is the area directly under your chin. The thyroid gland sits low in the neck and should not be affected by the treatment.
CoolSculpting is great for reduction in the submental area with the CoolMini applicator. The applicator is placed under the chin and does not affect the thyroid gland. The cooling does not travel farther than where the applicator is applied. Make sure you consult with a Certified CoolSculpting Technician to make sure you are a good candidate for this procedure.
