Fat accumulation under the chin and around the neck is a common problem for many men and women, which is known by the name of a double chin. It can create an unsightly lower face contour, and compromise the overall appearance of a person. The challenge is that it can be difficult to reduce stubborn fat tissue in this area with diet or exercise.
For people who want to get rid of the double chin appearance without involving surgery, CoolSculpting by Zeltiq can provide a credible, non-invasive solution. CoolSculpting has introduced a special device called CoolMini specifically for difficult to reach areas such as below the chin.
The FDA cleared CoolMini device can reduce excess submental fat and enhance the chin appearance. Motykie medical spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides CoolSculpting and CoolMini treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and other cities and neighborhoods in this part of Southern California.
Innovative Cooling Technique
CoolMini device is based on the same path-breaking cooling principle that has made CoolSculpting one of the most popular non-surgical fat reduction procedures today. With this technique, it is possible lose fat below the chin without involving any incisions, cuts, injections, medications or anesthesia.
The innovative cooling technique involved in CoolMini treatment was developed by researchers at Harvard, who found that fat cells are the earliest responders to cold temperatures. Using the cooling process of CoolMini, the treatment provider can isolate the targeted fat cells below the chin, and cause their internal disintegration.
The CoolMini applicator will work gently to simply freeze the fat, and cause the disruption of the fat cells. The fat cells will be gradually eliminated through the body’s metabolic activity, leaving behind enhanced chin contours. Fat cells once eliminated through CoolMini will be gone for good.
To get rid of double chin, an average person may require about 20 percent fat reduction in the under-chin area. This much fat reduction is typically achieved in one to two treatment sessions that last for less than one hour each. The CoolMini treatment provider will clamp the neck fat into the curved jaws of the applicator, and expose the double chin area to a controlled cool temperature.
The cold temperature will numb the targeted area, but will not cause any serious discomfort for the patient. A few patients may experience mild discomfort, swelling or pain for a temporary period, which is generally well-tolerated without local anesthesia. Motykie medical spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Motykie, receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and nearby areas for double chin reduction.
Proven Safety and Efficacy
A clinical trial involving 60 men and women between the ages of 22 and 65 was conducted to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of CoolMini for double chin reduction. Successful results of the trial led to the FDA clearance for CoolMini device. Most patients reported conspicuous improvement in about three weeks, while maximum impact was noticed in about one to three months after the treatment.
