No Injections, No Incisions

No matter how much you diet and exercise its difficult to get rid of submental fat which is known as "double chin", neck fat or "turkey neck." It is caused by excess fat deposits that accumulate under the chin and neck. Submental fat may be related to lifestyle, age or genetics. Unlike other body parts that can be concealed with clothing, double chins are difficult to hide. Double chin is a top concern for those seeking aesthetic procedures. The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery in 2014 found that 68% of people surveyed named excess fat under the chin and neck one of their top concerns. 

A double chin usually makes people look older. Some people don't realize they have a double chin until they see an unflattering photo. People usually notice their double chin in photos or when they look in the mirror. Caution is taken while posing and multiple adjustments are made to avoid the double chin which can kill a "selfie."

For years we have been successfully treating fat deposits on the abdomen, love handles, back, thighs and bra fat and under arms with Coolsculpt using the propriety science of cryolipolyisis technology. This procedure has been successful in over two million treatments throughout the US. 

Cryolipolysis works by exposure of fat cells to extreme cold. The fat cells die and are eliminated from the body permanently. Croyolipolysis selectively freezes the fat cells while bypassing the patient's skin. Twenty to twenty-five percent of fat cells treated are destroyed each treatment session. 

With Coolsculpt's introduction of a new uniquely designed applicator and the expanded clearance by the FDA, the CoolMini applicator, with the size, shape and curvature allows us to comfortably fit small problem areas. We are now able to treat smaller fat deposits such as the submental fat or double chin. This provides a non-invasive, non-surgical alternative to liposuction and is performed without injections or needles. There is little to no downtime. Most patients can resume regular activity immediately.  

Results may be seen as early as three weeks with the most dramatic results noticeable in one to three months after treatment. Optimal results are usually achieved in one to two treatments.

Patients can say goodbye to their "double chin", neck fat, "turkey neck or neck giggle." In with just one to two treatments, patients can experience a more attractive, better-defined youthful jawline. "Seflies" can then be taken comfortably and confidently in any position.
