Have you ever looked in the mirror at yourself and noticed not one, but two chins? Or perhaps you caught a glimpse of your profile in a photo and was surprisingly disappointed to see the area between your chin and neck displaying an unsightly diagonal slope? Has this distinct “family trait” caused you anguish? THERE IS GOOD NEWS! CoolSculpting under your chin/jawline can freeze, kill, and permanently remove fat cells. This occurs by a process called cryolipolysis which cools fat cells down to a temperature that causes cellular death without harming your skin or surrounding tissue. After freezing the fat cells with CoolSculpting, the body gradually removes these dead fat cells through your lymphatic system.
This FDA approved fat reduction treatment is completely non-invasive. It is perfect for stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond well to a change in diet and exercise. CoolSculpting under the chin is a great alternative to invasive fat-dissolving injections, liposuction or surgery. It is highly effective and virtually painless. In addition, there is little to no downtime which means no need to take off work- it can even be done on a lunch break!
So, what exactly happens during a submental CoolSculpting treatment? An applicator with a cool gel pad is placed under the chin/jaw area against the skin. Patients will experience a suctioning sensation as the CoolSculpting unit pulls in the area being treated- this ensures proper contact with the applicator. Next, as the controlled cooling mechanism is activated, they will experience a cooling sensation. Some people have described this sensation as “tingling”. This temporary feeling subsides in a short period of time as the area becomes numb. Relax while the treatment is completed- this is one step closer to a refined neck and jawline!
Typically, patients will start to see changes as soon as one to three months post treatment with results continuing to improve up to 6 months after treatment and beyond. The results are permanent as the fat cells have been destroyed and disposed of. Go into this holiday season feeling CONFIDENT with CoolSculpting!
