Until a few years ago, a neck lift plastic surgery and neck liposuction were the only ways to eliminate submental fat that creates a double chin, jowls, and neck wattles.
Now with the FDA cleared non-invasive CoolSculpting, fat can be dissolved in the neck and under the chin area rapidly, conveniently, and permanently without surgery. These fatty pockets are literally frozen to death with CoolSculpting.

CoolMini for Double Chin Fat Elimination
CoolSculpting was approved by the FDA for removing abdominal fat cells in 2010 and for eliminating thigh fat cells in 2014. But with a new expanded FDA approval, certified cosmetic professionals can remove tiny, stubborn fat pockets under the chin area using a specialized applicator, known as the CoolMini.
The CoolMini applicator for the new CoolSculpting double chin treatment has been used in more than two million treatments to date with excellent outcomes that are comparable even to surgical liposuction procedures.
CoolSculpting can achieve a 20 percent reduction in chin fat in one or two one-hour treatment sessions.
In this procedure, a licensed medical cosmetic provider will place the CoolMini applicator under the chin where the submental fat is frozen.
The fat cells are killed and gradually disappear through the body’s natural metabolic processes. While the procedure is painless, there may be some minor inflammation or slight bruising following the treatment.
A licensed medical aesthetic provider uses controlled cooling through the CoolMini applicator to eliminate stubborn fat under the chin. The surface area of the skin remains relatively unaffected as the procedure targets fat cells beneath the skin.
Once the fat cells are frozen, they are naturally expelled by the body. The CoolMini fat reduction treatment does not involve any downtime and eliminates fat permanently.
The FDA granted approval to the CoolMini applicator on the basis of a study of 60 male and female participants between the ages of 22 and 65 years. The company states that it did not observe any significant adverse events and patients experienced no to low discomfort or downtime.
CoolSculpting manufacturer Zeltiq also stated that the subjects in the study experienced visible improvement after three weeks and maximum improvement after three months.
According to early users, CoolSculpting of the neck and chin with the CoolMini applicator is creating real results. They state that the procedure is equally effective on small as well as more substantial fatty deposits on the chin and neck. The procedure is safe, and patients are satisfied with the outcomes.
The CoolMini applicator is meant to eliminate fat from smaller sites such as underneath the chin and the neck area in a more efficient, quicker manner.
A patient will need one to two one-hour treatment sessions for the reduction of around 20 percent fat under the chin area. In this procedure, the provider will clamp the neck fat into the curved jaws of the CoolMini device.
The targeted double chin fat is exposed to a cold temperature through the applicator which causes numbness in the region. The patient will not experience any major discomfort during the procedure. But some patients may feel temporary pain, inflammation, or mild discomfort during the recovery phase.
