A double chin is quite stubborn and hard to get rid of. A double chin makes a person appear much older than they actually are.
CoolSculpting has developed a procedure called Cool Mini to help patients get rid of their stubborn double chin. It is a form of non-invasive fat reduction treatment for removing the fat cells under the chin.
It is a much better and safer alternative to liposuction. The procedure requires no downtime and results can be observed in just two to three visits.
Cool Mini can reduce stubborn pockets of fat from anywhere on the body. Being a non-invasive procedure, there are no stitches or surgeries involved.
Cool Mini is FDA approved and can be used to treat double chin, neck fat, and jowl.
In addition, Cool Mini can also be used to reduce fat in the arms, knees, and ankles.
Cool Mini uses a procedure called Cryolipolysis to treat double chin. Cryolipolysis is a procedure in which fat cells are frozen. The frozen fat cells are then assimilated by the body's immune system thus reducing the fat in a particular area. The freezing of fat cells causes cell death. The procedure does not have any effect on the surrounding skin or tissues.
Cool Mini uses a curved applicator to treat the neck fat. The applicator uses extremely cold temperatures to freeze the body fat. The cold quickly numbs the area of the neck fat so that there is there is virtually very little discomfort.
The treatment lasts for forty five minutes.
There are no side effects and results are observed very quickly in most cases. Treatment requires at least two to three sessions. The total number of sessions depends on the extent of fat to be removed
Cool Mini merely treats neck fat and does not tighten up loose skin.
Any individual above the age of eighteen and in relatively good health can undergo a Cool Mini procedure. Individuals with life threatening diseases should refrain from taking up the treatment. Pregnant and nursing women are not recommended to undergo the treatment.
Since the procedure is non-invasive, there is not much in terms of preparation. It is best to refrain from smoking and taking painkillers such as aspirin and ibuprofen as they are blood thinners and may cause complications during the surgery.
Also, you may be required to adjust the dosage of certain beta blockers and blood pressure medications. It is best to consult your physician on such matters prior to the procedure.
