Has your double chin become the only thing you see in the mirror or pictures? If you answered yes, you are not alone.
In fact, many women and men are bothered by excess fat under the chin, which can make them look older and heavier than they actually are.
Continue reading to learn how to reduce your double chin with CoolSculpting and what patients can expect should the decide to undergo treatment.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved non-invasive body contouring treatment. It uses a patented cooling technology to precisely target and destroy stubborn fat.
In 2012, CoolSculpting received clearance for the treatment of submental fullness. Since then, it has become one of the most-requested non-surgical treatments for a double chin.
How to Reduce Your Double Chin with CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting can reduce your double chin in as little as one-to-two treatments. Through a process known as cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting freezes and destroys excess submental fat. The fat cell remnants are then collected and metabolized by the body.
Over the next two-to-three months, these by-products are cleared away via the lymphatic system to reveal a slimmer neck and chin.
Who’s a Good Candidate?
Healthy women and men that have stubborn submental fat are good candidates for CoolSculpting double chin treatment. Often these patients are genetically predisposed to a double chin and have been unable to reduce it through diet and exercise alone.
This procedure is also well-suited to patients that want to slim their neck and refine their jawline, but are unwilling or unable to undergo liposuction.
What to Expect from a CoolSculpting Double Chin Treatment?
If you want to learn how to reduce your double chin with CoolSculpting, we recommend scheduling a consultation with one of the talented and experienced providers at Cool Contours. We have extensive experience with CoolSculpting and will carefully listen to your concerns, determine if you are a good candidate, and develop a customized treatment plan for you.
On the day of your CoolSculpting procedure, the area under your chin will be marked and covered with a gel pad. Next, the CoolMini applicator will suction fatty tissue into the device handpiece. You may feel a slight tugging or pulling sensation.
Once the applicator is in a secure, yet comfortable position, the 45-minute treatment will begin. During this time, you will be able to relax, listen to music, or watch tv.
At the end of the cycle, the provider will remove the applicator from under the chin and manually massage the areas to break-up crystallized fat cells.
CoolSculpting Risks and Side Effects
In the hands of a qualified provider like Cool Contours in Fairfax, Virginia, CoolSculpting is an extremely safe treatment. Most patients find the double chin treatment very tolerable and report only minor discomfort.
As the device delivers its cooling effect, you may also note mild and temporary stinging or tingling.
Post-CoolSculpting, some individuals report achiness, swelling, tenderness, pain, and feeling of fullness in the throat. All of these issues are temporary and typically resolve on their own in a matter of days.
How Quickly Can CoolSculpting Slim Your Double Chin?
For optimal outcomes, a series of two or more treatments, spaced four-to-six weeks apart, is recommended. Visible contouring of the neck and jawline may be seen as early as three weeks.
CoolSculpting results typically peak three months after the last treatment. As long as patients maintain a healthy lifestyle, results are permanent
