Many people have heard about CoolSculpting®, the body-contouring procedure that doesn’t require any incisions, anesthesia, or downtime. CoolSculpting has been used for several years now and routinely achieves outstanding results in areas including the thighs, hips, and abdomen. Perhaps you have considered what a little fat-freezing could do for your body. Here, we want to point out why the CoolMini, an offshoot from the traditional procedure, might be the double-chin solution you’ve been waiting for.
What is CoolSculpting®?
We cannot explain the CoolMini without reviewing what CoolSculpting is all about. This popular fat-reducing procedure is advantageous due to its non-invasive nature. The most invasive aspect of a CoolSculpting treatment is the suction of fat tissue in between the cooling panels. Because there is no anesthesia or other surgical techniques, patients can drive themselves home, back to work, or out for a night on the town right after their treatment. All the while, the effects of fat-freezing will be working to sculpt the body.
Fat-freezing is a concept developed by Harvard scientists who were intrigued by the fact that some children developed dimples from eating popsicles. These researchers theorized that dimples were caused by fat cell death in the cheeks resultant from frequent cooling during popsicle-eating. This concept eventually translated into the idea of cryolipolysis, or fat cell death induced by controlled cooling; it evolved into CoolSculpting, the cooling device that targets and kills unwanted fat cells.
Cooling for Your Double Chin
Since first gaining FDA clearance in 2010, the CoolSculpting device has whittled millions of waistlines. Its use expanded to the treatment of unwanted thigh and arm fat over time, and now the makers of CoolSculpting have developed an innovative handpiece for the chin.
CoolMini works on the same principals as CoolSculpting for larger body areas. During treatment, the small applicator pulls tissue between cooling panels and holds it for 30 to 60 minutes. As tissue cools, crystals form within fat cells and set off an inflammatory response. Over the course of a few weeks, the targeted cells die off and get eliminated for good.
