How Does CoolMini® Fat Freezing for a Double Chin Work?

Many people yearn for the defined, chiselled jawline associated with actors and supermodels, but the reality is that having an extra layer of fat below the chin makes it difficult to get the face shape you want. Although being overweight can cause you to appear fuller around the cheeks and chin area, plenty of very slim people have a slight double chin. Reducing this type of fat on your own can be very challenging, especially if you naturally have a recessed jawbone that seems out of proportion with the rest of your face or you tend to store resistant fat in this area because of aging and genetics. Weight loss through exercise isn’t guaranteed to improve the chin area, and you can’t spot reduce fat by dieting. CoolMini® at our New Jersey office, however, can give you a sculpted, slimmer facial appearance without the need for more invasive surgical procedures or injections.

CoolMini® is an FDA-approved CoolSculpting® applicator that’s designed specifically for small areas of isolated fat, such as the pocket that often develops between the chin and neck. A session with this device is usually completed in less than an hour, and there are few risks or side effects to watch for.

Treatment generally leads 20 to 25 percent of the fat cells in the targeted area to freeze and be killed off, but leaves the surrounding skin and tissue intact. The dead cells in this area are gradually flushed out within a few months, leaving you with a sharper chin and better-define profile.

If you have a very small amount of fat, there may not be enough bulk for the applicator to “freeze away,” so it might be better to try another cosmetic treatment. Our team can help you determine the best approach for you.

Note that CoolMini® isn’t designed to be a replacement for regular exercise and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but it can be ideal for someone who is already close to their goal body weight and who wants to make some tweaks to this one area.
