How Can CoolSculpting Help Me Lose My Double Chin?3 min read
A double chin is the bane of many people’s existence. It can make you feel self-conscious and awkward in photos, make your collar look too tight or your neck too long, and generally make you uncomfortable in public. And while there are plenty of things that can help with a double chin, such as weight loss, exercise routines to keep the neck muscles strong, or surgery (which costs thousands), there’s also a less invasive alternative: CoolSculpting!
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat-reduction procedure that uses controlled cooling technology to target and eliminate stubborn fat cells. The CoolSculpting device delivers precise cooling to the targeted area, freezing the fat cells underneath the skin without harming the skin itself. Once the fat cells are frozen, they are naturally processed and eliminated by the body over time.
With CoolSculpting, there’s no surgery, no needles, and no downtime required! The procedure is FDA-cleared, safe, effective, and can be done in the office of Aesthetica Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center. Board-certified and leading plastic surgeon Dr. Phillip Chang, Aesthetica’s CoolSculpting expert, has helped many patients achieve their desired results.
Areas Treated by CoolSculpting
While it can treat many different areas of the body, such as the stomach, thighs, arms, and back, CoolSculpting is especially effective at treating a double chin. The CoolSculpting device has a unique applicator specifically designed for treating this area with impressive results!
What Is a Double Chin?
A double chin, also known as submental fullness, is a common condition that occurs when excess fat accumulates below the chin and jawline. It can be caused by weight gain, aging, genetics, or even posture. Many people are self-conscious about their double chin and feel like it makes them look older or heavier than they actually are.
While there are many treatments for a double chin, CoolSculpting is one of the most popular because it’s non-invasive and doesn’t require any downtime.
CoolSculpting for Double Chin
CoolSculpting can help you get rid of your double chin without surgery or downtime. The procedure is simple and takes about 35 minutes to complete. During the procedure, the CoolSculpting device will be applied to the area under your chin and will begin to cool the fat cells. You may feel some pressure and intense cold at first, but this will subside after a few minutes as the area numbs. Most patients report feeling little to no discomfort during the procedure.
After the procedure is complete, you can immediately return to your normal activities, as no downtime is required. Some patients may experience redness, bruising, swelling, or numbness in the treated area, but these side effects are usually temporary and resolve within a few days.
Over the next few months, you will see a reduction in the appearance of your double chin as the treated fat cells are gradually eliminated from your body. The results are long-lasting and can be seen as early as four weeks after treatment, with optimal results typically seen after 12 weeks.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
Most patients begin to see results four weeks after treatment, but the final results may not be seen until 12 weeks. This is because it can take a while for the frozen fat cells to be eliminated by the body. However, the results are long-lasting and stay with you for good!
