CoolMini from CoolSculpting Targets Your Chin

When we think of pockets of stubborn fat, most of us have known areas that we can readily point out. The lower abdomen. The flanks. The thighs. 

But what about what’s going on under your chin? Yes, the dreaded double chin. In most people, their double chin is the result of accumulated fat under their jawline weighing down the skin. 

There has been little that could be done about a double chin other than a neck lift or lower facelift. But not everyone wants to have surgery to address their sagging profile. 

What CoolSculpting has done for your abdomen it can now do for the excess fat under your chin. Dr. Yates takes pride in continually staying up to date on the various CoolSculpting handpieces available, and one that our patients love is the CoolMini handpiece. This is a relatively new option added by the CoolSculpting people and is intended for much smaller areas such as under the chin. We’ve had good success using CoolMini to address double chins for our patients. 

CoolMini = CoolSculpting for your chin 

During the CoolMini procedure, a proprietary coupling gel is applied to the area under your chin. Once the gel is applied, a vacuum is initiated through the applicator to suction the fat deposit in the area. The key for the CoolMini procedure is the applicator, which is optimized to capture and effectively treat smaller fat pockets. For 30 to 60 minutes, the applicator is held there to do the cooling. The result is a cold-induced inflammatory response that ultimately leads to the death of fat cells under the chin. After a few days or weeks, these dead fat cells are absorbed by the body as it heals, resulting in a 20% fat reduction in the treated area. These fat cells are permanently removed, similar to what happens with liposuction, but without the surgery. 

CoolMini has become quite popular for a simple reason. The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery in a 2015 survey found that over two thirds of people said they were bothered by a double chin. So, you’re not alone in wanting a slimmer profile under your chin. 

We guarantee your CoolSculpting at Dr. Yates! 

Dr. Yates is a board-certified plastic surgeon, and he performs various body contouring surgical procedures such as liposuction and tummy tucks. But he wanted to offer a non-invasive fat reduction treatment, and he feels strongly that CoolSculpting is the best treatment out there. That’s why we can guarantee you’ll be satisfied with your CoolSculpting results because if you don’t feel the procedure has reached your goals, we will apply the costs of your CoolSculpting session (less consumable charges) to a liposuction procedure on the same areas. How cool, literally, is that? 

CoolSculpting is a great treatment to have during this hot Utah summer. It’s just one of the many reasons you should come see Dr. Yates and our entire team at our offices on 1700 West in Layton. Call us at (801) 525-8741 to schedule an appointment.
