Over the last few years, we have seen a huge shift in the world of fat loss procedures.  Cryolipolysis, or freezing of the fat cells, has proven itself to be one of the greatest advancements in the arena of fat reduction. CoolSculpting has provided our patients with the ability to choose a safer alternative to liposuction while still seeing astonishing results in getting rid of their stubborn problem areas. We all know that needles aren’t for everyone; therefore, someone who is not keen on the idea of injections may feel as though they’ll never get rid of their double chin. Luckily for our trypanophobic friends, the newest CoolSculpting applicator may be the ideal treatment! The CoolSculpting CoolMini applicator was designed and FDA-approved specifically to target submental fat. Its unique curvature and size make it highly effective in treating and contouring the neck area.

The FDA clearance is based on data from a U.S. pivotal clinical trial involving 60 male and female patients, ranging in age from 22 to 65 years. In the trial, patients received 1-2 treatments in the area under the chin, each six weeks apart resulting in an average of 20% fat reduction, which is in line with results achieved with other CoolSculpting applicators. Additionally, no significant adverse events were observed and patients experienced little to no discomfort or downtime.  Over 80% of patients in clinical trials were highly satisfied with their results and would recommend the treatment to a friend. So if you’re looking for a needle-free way to lose the double chin, the CoolMini could be the solution for you! An added perk? CoolMini may also be able to treat smaller pockets of fat on the body!
