The double chin is one of the most dreaded signs of weight gain or aging. The double chin can be caused by many things including diet, family history, or basic body composition, meaning where your body stores water and fat. At the Center for Aesthetics & Anti-Aging, we are thrilled to offer a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment to remove unwanted fat beneath the chin.
How to Get Rid of a Double Chin
The CoolSculpting CoolMini is an FDA-approved non-invasive answer to unwanted submental fat, also known as the double chin. We have been chosen by Zeltiq as 1 of 78 offices in the United States to offer the CoolMini first and we’re thrilled to offer it to our patients.
Backing up a step, how does a double chin even form? The triangle shape beneath your neck is referred to as the submental area. A double chin forms when subcutaneous sheet of fat around your neck droops and then causes a wrinkle. As we mentioned before, this can happen for a series of reasons including family history, weight gain, your body’s composition and storage tendencies, and simply aging.
The CoolMini applies the same methodology that the CoolSculpting system does: the system targets fat cells beneath the skin’s surface, and delivers precisely-controlled cooling that freezes and eliminates the fat cells. The non-surgical fat reduction procedure is approximately 60 minutes long and according to a past patient, “really comfortable.”
Other options for addressing this area requires surgery or injections, which are more painful, require more downtime and are often more expensive. The results from the first 700 CoolMini procedures look incredible. Not only does the CoolMini not include harsh chemical injections, but it produces better results in less time than injection treatments.
The CoolMini can also be applied on tough-to-treat areas including unwanted fat around the knees and underarms. A consultation is required prior to scheduling treatment. Get in touch with our expert team and schedule your free consultation!
