CoolSculpting for Double Chin

Coolsculpting with the Coolmini is an effective, non-invasive and safe treatament to reduce fat in the submental (Double chin) area.  It only takes 45 minutes per session and results can be seen in 1- 2 sessions.  The cost per applicator is $ 1,000.  If you are wondering if you are a good candidate for the Cool Mini ask for a Complimentary Consultation with a Certified CoolSculpting Specialist.

CoolMini uses the same cryolipolisis “freeze the fat” technology and can treat a double chin

Yes, the FDA recently cleared a new CoolSculpting applicator called the CoolMini which is specifically designed for small areas of fat such as a double chin, the armpits, and the knees. CoolMini uses the same cryolipolisis “freeze the fat” technology, with the same results (approximately a 20-30% reduction in fat on average after one treatment). I recommend visiting a board-certified dermatologist for a consultation to see if you are a good candidate for the CoolMini treatment.

Cool Mini attachment for "double chin"

Coolsculpting has come out with a newer hand piece known at the cool mini that fits under the chin to treat submental fat, or the "double chin." The treatment is 45 mins long, results are permanent and our office is charging $775 for this procedure, however we offer monthly discounts and specials. Good luck.

Coolmini working for double chin!

The Coolmini is a newer addition to Coolsculpting, and works to reduce the submental fat pad. It is painless and takes 45 minutes. The average cost is $1,000 in the New York area. Depending on the patient 1-2 sessions may be required for the best outcome, and is very popular with patients with very little down time.

Coolsculpting for the double chin

Thank you your question. We offer the Cool mini as a surgical alternative to liposuction for the right candidate. We also offer Kybella and often use the two to develop customized surgical alternative to surgical options. I would visit with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area who offers all these options to discuss what is best for you.

45 minutes per treatment

Depending on the size of the treatment area, the cost is $750 - $1000 and takes about 45 minutes per treatment. Most people only need one to two treatments.

For smaller areas, we often use an injectable treatment called, Kybella. This can be used in conjunction with Coolsculpting. If you have a lot of fat under your neck, we suggest using CoolSculpting. We often use Kybella to refine a chin after CoolSclupting has removed a notable amount of fat.  

45mins per applicator

It takes 45mins per applicator and most people require 1-2 applicators. The charge is $750-1500 depending on the size of the treatment area. 

Another option is Kybella, which is an injectable treatment. Kybella can be used in conjunction with Coolsculpting.  CoolSculpting is better for larger necks, while Kybella is better for smaller ones.  So if you have a larger area of fullness under the chin, you can do a treatment of CoolSculpting and fine tune it with Kybella, once the larger bulk is reduced. Kybella is also better for accurate placement than Coolsculpting.
One is not better than the other. They are just different applications.

Can the neck area (double chin) be treated bu CoolSculpting and what is the cost?

Yes the submental (double chin) can be treated by the CoolSculpting Mini applicator.  It uses the same advanced cooling technology to target and kill only the fat cells.  The treatment only takes 45 minutes per session.  Treatment cost is $1000 per treatment but the price is significantly reduced when purchased in a package.  Most patients experience a better result when doing 2 treatments six to three months apart.

Treating the double chin with CoolSculpting

The submental fat pad can be treated with CoolSculpting's CoolMini hand piece, which is one of the newer FDA approved handpieces and areas to be treated with CoolSculpting. Depending upon the size of the area to be treated there may need to be 2 treatments, 6 weeks apart. Cost begins at $600 per cycle, but may be reduced with Package Pricing. This has been an excellent treatment for this area. We also use the CoolMini handpiece to treat the bra fat (by the armpit) and the fat over the knees! As alway, a proper assessment and consultation is a must. We find that some clients want to remove the fat under the chin and also have concerns with skin laxity, so in those cases we might recommend the Precision treatment with SmartLipo. This will allow us to melt and remove the fat and then laser the area for skin tightening. Excellent for the chin, jowls and lower cheek areas.

Coolsculpting to chin

Yes coolsculpting offers the coolmini handpiece that works great for the chin area. Most patients do need to do two treatments 6 weeks apart from each other. A consultation is a great way to have a provider assess your area of stubborn fat in the chin and put a treatment plan together for you.
