Fat beneath the chin is one of the most common aesthetic concerns for both men and women. One of the most difficult areas to address, a double chin, is often treated with liposuction, a surgery that suctions out fat via a hollow tube. Today there is an exciting alternative to surgery: CoolSculpting, an FDA-cleared fat reduction treatment. When used beneath the chin, CoolSculpting can eliminate fat cells and improve the appearance of the jawline.
CoolSculpting uses a unique cooling technology that selectively freezes fat cells and destroys them. Once the fat is destroyed, the body wills sweep the dead fat cells out of the body through its own natural cleansing mechanism. Thanks to a specially designed applicator, CoolSculpting can also be used for chin fat reduction and to contour the neck area.
During a treatment, the vacuum-enabled applicator is placed on the fatty area, which pulls the fat towards the device. Next, the cooling technology is enabled, which targets the fat cells and freezes them so they can be eliminated. To protect the skin and increase comfort during the process, a special gel is placed over the treatment area. During the procedure, patients will feel a cooling sensation and light pressure. CoolSculpting causes minimal discomfort and, unlike liposuction, does not require any anesthesia or recovery time.
On average, a CoolSculpting session takes about one hour. For the chin and neck area, 1-2 treatments are typically done.The biggest benefit of CoolSculpting is that it permanently destroys fat cells so the body can remove them—once they are gone, they are gone. To maintain optimal results, patients should avoid weight fluctuations after treatment.
CoolSculpting is safe for anybody who has stubborn fat in the chin and neck area. Dr. Senait Dyson recommends the procedure to individuals who are looking for a non-invasive technique for double chin removal. The best candidates for CoolSculpting for the chin are in overall good health and are close to or at their ideal body weights.
