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 chin

Dear Chibiakai,

Yes! Coolsculpting is great to eliminate the double chin. It is non-invasive, non-surgical. The treatment takes 45mins, and the cost is $650. Additionally, coolsculpting is great for not just the chin (middle of neck) but also the right and left side of the neck below the jawline. Kybella can only treat the middle of the neck (chin).

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.

CoolSculpting is a great treatment for the neck and double chin!

Hello and thank you for asking this excellent question! Realizing your question was asked awhile back, I am not exactly sure if the CoolMini was available at the time.  The CoolMini applicator was designed specifically to treat this common problem area and we're very pleased with the opportunity to effectively treat this area. We see men and women (equally) pursuing a non-surgical treatment alternative for unwanted fat in the neck and chin and the results are excellent.  CoolMini averages $1000-$2000 for the treatment, and this is accomplished in a single office visit, with little or no downtime (swelling) or discomfort following.

You may very well have elected treatment at this point, but if not, I highly recommend you meet with a practice that provides this treatment.

All the best,

CoolMini is used to treat a double chin

Yes, CoolMini is an FDA cleared device approved for submental (double chin) fat destruction.  This can be accomplished in one or two treatments.  We recommend evaluation by a facial plastic surgeon to determine if liposuction, CoolMini or Kybella would be best for your individual needs.
