Do I Have to Have Surgery to Get Rid of My Double Chin?
To effectively treat a double chin, it helps to know all of your treatment options. Surgical procedures like neck liposuction certainly provide excellent results, but many patients are not ready for surgery. Until recently, the only non-surgical treatment option for a double chin was diet and exercise. Results were limited and only seen for a short period of time, frustrating many who wanted noticeable, long-lasting results.
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary treatment option used to help patients get rid of stubborn fat. It uses a special device to deliver controlled cooling to areas where unwanted fat is present, most commonly the abdomen, arms, back, and thighs. Fat cells freeze, crystallize and die. They are then naturally eliminated by the body—providing patients with results that last a lifetime.
CoolMini is the newest addition to CoolSculpting. It is aminiature device used to target the area under the chin, delivering extremely precise controlled cooling. Stubborn fat cells that cause a double chin may be targeted, treated, and eliminated using CoolMini. Positive testimonials show that the treatment option helps patients reach their aesthetic goals.
CoolMini procedures are performed on an outpatient basis. Numerous measures are taken to ensure patients feel little discomfort during their procedure. Most patients read, check emails, watch movies, or take naps while one of our CoolMini specialists gently tends to the area. Total procedure time is usually between 45-60-minutes. Patients return to normal everyday activities, including work and exercise, right after their procedure. Results are seen in as little as 3 weeks.
