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.

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.

Can CoolSculpting treat a double chin?

CoolSculpting is not designed to treat fat under the neck. CoolSculpting is ideal for patients who want to remove stubborn fat deposits from areas of the body such as the abdomen, love handles, thighs, and back. For fat removal from under the neck, a different treatment should be utilized.

CoolScuplt Mini provides reduction in sub-mental fullness that lasts

Hello and thank-you for your question!

We offer the Cool mini as a non-surgical alternative to liposuction for the right candidate. We also offer Kybella which is another non-surgical alternative to liposuction. We are currently offering a package of 2 CoolSulpt Mini treatments for $2000.00. The treatments are separated by 4-6 weeks. If there is mild to moderate skin laxity, combining the treatment with Ultherapy is an option. I would visit with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to learn about your options.

Best regards,

CoolMini for Sub-mental Fat Reduction

Yes, Zeltiq now offers a FDA approved Coolsculpting applicator, the CoolMini, to treat sub-mental fat deposits.  For optimal results, I suggest two treatments, set six weeks apart. Fat reductions of 20% to 25% can be achieved.  For pricing and to determine if you are a candidate for the treatment, you should consult with an experienced provider in your area.

CoolSculpting Neck Area

The Cool Mini applicator is great for treatment of the submentum (double chin) area. There is minimal discomfort and no downtime. Most patients see significant results with 1-2 treatments. The prices can vary, so it is best to obtain a consultation to determine pricing and if you are a candidate for treatment.

CoolMini by Zeltiq Can “Freeze” a Double Chin

By using a patented technology called cryolipolysis(TM), the CoolMini applicator can freeze up to 20 to 30% of fat in a double chin. Freezing kills the fat cells, which are then eliminated from the body over time. Because fat freezes at a higher temperature than does water, surrounding tissues are not affected by the treatment, making it virtually risk free. Side effects are minor and include swelling and redness, which generally resolves within a couple of hours to weeks. Usually two treatments can create dramatic results. We can sometimes perform the two sessions in the same appointment day, overlapping the center where the fat is usually worse. The cost of CoolMini varies by each individual case as well as by provider. Please consult with a board-certified dermatologist to find out how you can get rid of your double chin for good.
