If you have the dreaded double chin, you are not alone. In fact, the condition is normal and affects many people as it develops due to genetics, age or diet. A double chin is actually an extra layer of fat that forms beneath the chin. Many of us believe that the condition ruins our profile and makes us look older and out of shape. CoolSculpting® is an impressive non-invasive procedure that can zap stubborn chin fat and redefine our jawline and neck. It’s safe, quick, and clinically proven to deliver great results within one to two treatments.
The Science Behind It
CoolSculpting® is all about cryolipolysis or fat-freezing and gets rid of stubborn fat pockets. First, the chin area is washed, and a protective gel is applied. Then, the CoolSculpting® applicator is placed to adhere on your double chin where it produces a sucking sensation and cooling effect. The treatment session lasts for about 45 minutes. After your fat cells freeze, they die and are gradually removed through your body’s natural process. CoolSculpting® is designed to be a relaxing treatment, so the client can nap, read, watch TV or listen to music.
Following the procedure, your aesthetic technician will remove the device and gently massage the treated site to help break down the crystallized fat cells to optimize fat cell death. The massage will last about two minutes.
Gradual, Steady Results
CoolSculpting® for a double chin can yield encouraging results after one treatment. The effects are gradual but steady and usually occur within a matter of weeks. Most patients require up to two treatments, and some need three sessions to achieve sculpted results. Aesthetic experts say that CoolSculpting® performs best for those who are relatively fit and within 20 pounds of their ideal weight. The procedure has been FDA-approved since 2010 for the belly and love handles and more recently, for double chins, back fat, thighs, arms and banana rolls (beneath the buttocks.) It is safe and does not damage the surrounding tissue.
