CoolMini Before & After Photos
Excess accumulation of neck fat in the submental area can give the appearance of an unsightly double or triple chin. If the patient wants to avoid liposuction plastic surgery, the treatment provider may recommend CoolMini non-invasive procedure to reduce submental fat. CoolMini is a customized body contouring applicator from Zeltiq, the manufacturer of CoolSculpting.
The CoolMini applicator has been cleared by the FDA for the reduction of unwanted fat tissue around the neck area below the chin. MBody, led by board certified plastic surgeons, provides CoolMini neck fat treatment to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and surrounding communities.
Ideally Suited for Neck Fat Reduction
Excess fat tissue below the chin is usually an area that can be difficult to treat with conventional non-surgical procedures. Therefore, Zeltiq came up with the CoolMini applicator, which has a unique shape, size and curvature that is specifically designed to address smaller pockets of fat in the submental region. The FDA has cleared the device for submental fat reduction.
The fat in this area can be difficult to reduce with diet and exercise, and CoolMini offers a completely non-invasive alternative treatment. Procedure in this small volume area can be completed with a similar level of efficacy as CoolSculpting. Unlike plastic surgery, CoolMini involves little to no downtime and no pain. The applicator has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from both patients and physicians.
How does it Work?
CoolMini is designed to freeze away unwanted double chin fat. The technology is based upon the research of Harvard scientists who developed a unique cooling process to isolate and freeze targeted fat cells, which respond quickly to cold temperature. The frozen fat cells gradually die and disintegrate completely. They will be reduced from the body in the natural metabolic process, revealing slimmer and sculpted contours in the submental neck area.
In case of under chin fat reduction, the treatment provider may be able to deliver optimal outcomes in about two to three treatment sessions spaced one month apart from each other. The patient will be able to notice improvement in about three weeks, but the most dramatic outcomes can be seen in about two to three months. The process is non-surgical, enabling the patient to resume their regular activities immediately after the treatment.
Experienced plastic surgeons at MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg and nearby areas for CoolMini and various other procedures.
Safety and Efficacy
One of the key advantages of CoolMini neck fat reduction procedure is that it avoids all the risks and complications that are typically associated with a cosmetic surgery procedure. The FDA clearance for CoolMini is based on data from a pivotal clinical trial involving 60 male and female patients in the age group of 22 to 65 years. Each of the patients received one to two treatments in the area below the chin, each six weeks apart. An average of 20 percent fat reduction was achieved in this trial.
No significant adverse events were reported and patients experienced little to no downtime or discomfort. These findings make CoolMini neck fat reduction an ideal procedure for busy moms, working people, and all others who want to avoid plastic surgery, but seek a more sculpted neck and chin appearance.
