Having a double chin can be a serious downer.
Think about it: Even if you’re doing all the right things with diet and exercise, a double chin may still make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. And because a double chin can often be attributed to genetics, it can be tough to get rid of it altogether.
That’s why we’re here to answer this popular question: “How can I reduce a double chin without surgery?”
CoolMini: Reduce a Double Chin Without Surgery
CoolMini is a type of CoolSculpting® Elite treatment designed to reduce fat cells underneath the chin and jawline. While CoolSculpting® Elite uses a fixed oval cup-shaped handpiece to deliver freezing energy to subdermal fat cells, CoolMini uses a smaller, contoured handle to directly target double chin fat.
The end result is a reduced double chin, and more defined neck!
If you’re looking for an alternative to CoolMini treatments, you may consider Kybella® injections. This injection uses deoxycholic acid to dissolve submental fat cells, leaving a noticeable reduction in the appearance of a double chin. Kybella® injections are ideal for smaller double chin or taming jowls along the jawline. Kybella® can also be used to fine tune Coolmini CoolSculpting® Elite results to get the contour you want.
What Kind of CoolMini Results Can I Expect?
CoolMini treatments can reduce 20-25% of fat cells within the submental tissue with each treatment, leading to noticeable fat reduction. You may need two to three CoolMini treatments to see your ideal results.
Am I a Good Candidate for CoolMini Treatments?
You’re a good candidate for CoolMini treatments if you have a double chin that won’t respond to diet and exercise treatments. CoolMini candidates should be within 30 pounds of their ideal body weight.
You should be willing to commit to a healthy lifestyle in order to maintain your CoolMini results.
Remember, if you’re not a candidate for CoolMini treatments because you have cold sensitivity (Raynaud’s) or your double chin is very mild, or you want to try an alternative, Kybella® may be the right treatment for you..
