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.

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.

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.
