You’ve heard how great CoolSculpting can be for spot reducing unwanted stubborn fat, but you may be wondering: “what about laxity? Can CoolSculpting improve the appearance of lax tissue?” When it comes to a double chin, the answer is “yes,” as the FDA has cleared CoolSculpting to improve the appearance of lax tissue in conjunction with treatments for submental fat (double chin).
RESULTS PROVEN IN A CLINICAL STUDY
In an 18 week clinical study of the submental fat (aka double-chin), CoolSculpting
- was proven to improve the appearance of lax tissue in more than 3/4 patients
- visibly improved tissue laxity in 77% of the patients
- made the chin look more toned after treatment for 75% of the patients
You can think of CoolSculpting as the double approach to the double chin because not only does it noticeably reduce chin fat, it also improves the lax tissue.
Is Chin Fat Bothering You?
In a 2016 survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery revealed that 73% of patients are bothered by excess fat under the chin. So if fat under the chin bothers you – you are not alone. In fact, CoolSculpting research has found that the 4th most desired treatment area is the chin.
How Does CoolSculpting Reduce Chin Fat?
CoolSculpting reduces unwanted fat by destroying fat cells with Cryolipolysis (aka “freezing the fat”). This typically results in about 20% fat reduction in the treated area.* The best part about this treatment is that it is a non-invasive treatment that takes less than 1 hour and has zero downtime. Plus, once the treated fat cells are gone, they are gone for good.
