The CoolMini procedure uses a cool cup applicator that is perfectly sized for the area under the chin – your ultimate solution to unwanted chin fat.
And how does it work? The treatment with the CoolMini applicator is very similar to a CoolSculpting procedure on any other area of the body:
The CoolMini applicator is placed on the chin, or submental area, and special pillows are used to position the head for comfort.
You might feel gentle suction on the area initially. As the skin is cooled down, the treated area feels cold for about 5-10 minutes, followed by numbness and virtually no sensation at all.
Now you can start watching a movie on your tablet or use your phone for the remaining treatment time, about 35-45 minutes.
After the treatment, a small butter-stick develops in the cooled area of fat, which is massaged for about 5 minutes. As the fat recedes, the skin often tightens with the receding fat.
At Main Line Center for Laser Surgery, we did a pivotal study using two overlapping cycles to treat larger areas of neck fullness more effectively.
The wonderful thing about CoolMini, like all CoolSculpting procedures, is that it is non-invasive and only attaches to the surface of the skin, while the cold treatment reaches the fat below. The CoolMini procedure is very effective, and involves little to no downtime.
