CoolSculpting® for the Face? How CoolMini™ Can Reduce a Double Chin
You may already be familiar with CoolSculpting®, the state-of-the-art non-surgical fat reduction technique that can break down fat cells using cold energy. But did you know that there’s a handheld version that can be used on stubborn facial fat? It’s called CoolMini™, and this FDA-approved device may be able to help you achieve the jawline contour you’ve always desired. At Silverberg Surgical & Medical Group, our board certified dermatologist offers CoolMini™ treatments to reduce the appearance of a double chin without surgery.
Submental fat, better known as a “double chin,” can affect men and women of any size or fitness level. Furthermore, this fatty tissue typically resists the benefits of diet and exercise. As with the CoolSculpting® technology, the CoolMini™ destroys fatty tissue by freezing fat cells, which can then be eliminated through the body’s natural metabolic processes. Completely non-invasive, the CoolMini™ procedure takes about one hour to complete. After treatment, you should be able to return to regular activity immediately. Some bruising and tenderness in the treated area is normal, and these effects should subside quickly. You should begin to see results after about one to three weeks, and the full outcome should be visible after a few months.
If you’re interested in achieving a firmer, more youthful-looking facial contour without the drawbacks associated with surgery, CoolMini™ may be right for you.
