The appearance of double chin can occur when excessive fat tissue deposits accumulate in the submental region.
Stubborn fats in this area are not easy to eliminate through diet or exercise, which leaves patients with the option of liposuction plastic surgery. But if the patient wants to avoid surgery, they may consider CoolMini body contouring treatment, which is an applicator designed specifically to reduce double chin.
CoolMini is a part of the CoolSculpting procedure, which ranks among the most popular non-surgical body contouring treatments. CoolMini device has been created to exclusively focus on difficult to reach areas such as below the chin. The FDA has cleared this device for fat reduction in the submental area.
MBody, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides CoolMini by CoolSculpting treatment to eliminate double chin effect for patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations across the landscape.
Uniquely Designed for Submental Area
Conventional non-invasive treatments as well as CoolSculpting may not be very successful in addressing the fat pockets in the hard to access submental area underneath the chin. To overcome this problem, Zeltiq, the company that owns CoolSculpting technology, introduced the CoolMini applicator. CoolMini has a size, shape and curvature that is specifically designed to treat smaller fat pockets below the chin.
CoolMini procedure is completely non-invasive, involving no cuts, incisions, needles, medications or anesthesia. With this cutting edge device, the same level of success in double chin reduction can be achieved as with CoolSculpting in other areas. Unlike plastic surgery procedures, CoolMini treatment can be performed with little to no discomfort and downtime.
How does CoolMini Work?
CoolMini treatment is based on the same innovative cooling process that has made CoolSculpting one of the most sought-after fat reduction and body contouring procedures today. This unique cooling process was developed by Harvard scientists, who found that fat cells can be isolated because they respond first to cold temperatures.
CoolMini device selectively targets the unwanted fat cells below the chin, while leaving the healthy tissue unaffected. The fat cells quickly respond to the cold temperature delivered through the applicator, and begin to freeze off. The frozen fat cells eventually get disintegrated and the undesirable fat exits the body through its natural metabolic process.
The patient is able to achieve a slimmer, sculpted and more youthful looking chin and neck. The effect of double chin is no longer there. Another good thing about CoolSculpting and CoolMini techniques is that they will permanently eliminate the fat. The fat cells that are killed through the cooling process will not return in the future at the same site.
Comfortable, In-Office Procedure
A single treatment with CoolMini to improve the chin contours may last for about 45 minutes. The procedure is performed at the provider’s office. The patient can listen to music or rest comfortably while the treatment is performed. Shining results are usually achieved after two to three treatment sessions that are spaced one month apart.
