How Does CoolMini Work?

Coolsculpting-CoolMiniSay Goodbye to Your Double Chin with the CoolMini Applicator.

A tight, taut jawline is a sign of youth and beauty–It’s something most of us don’t realize the value of until it’s gone.

If you’ve been hating your double chin, wishing there was a way to spot reduce it, technology has just made it a lot easier. CoolSculpting, the non-surgical fat reduction treatment that utilizes controlled cooling to eliminate fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise, recently received FDA approval for another device, the CoolMini applicator, which gives us a new tool to address and non-invasively correct your double chin as well other areas that hold onto small pockets of fat.

The novel CoolSculpting technology uses a body contouring method called cryolipolysis. Essentially, when fat gets very cold (just above the freezing point), fat cells become irreparably damaged. The body recognizes these fat cells as “melted” and then removes them over time through natural processes. It can take two to four months to see the final result, and many patients benefit from a second treatment. Research shows that as much as 25% of your unwanted fat can be removed in a single CoolSculpting session.

Treatment Areas

The new CoolMini applicator is uniquely designed to target small volume areas of fat. The applicator’s size, shape and curvature comfortably fit these problem areas which could not be properly treated with the previously available, larger applicators. This is good news for those that have accumulated fat in the submental area (aka double-chin fat), upper knee and axillary area and even those that have contour irregularities caused by previous liposuction treatments.

CoolSculpting Benefits

There are areas of the body where you just can’t do enough dieting or exercise to whittle off the excess fat lingering in stubborn places. Perhaps trying a new method for weight-loss is an investment you would like to make for your long-term health and well-being. Having that peak physique for life’s special events and milestones like weddings, reunions, and vacations is something all of us desire, but oftentimes we have a hard time knowing how to reach our potential.

Controlled temperature exposure to remove fat cells recontours the aesthetic appearance of your body.

Yo-yo dieting, extreme workouts, and the various irrational weight-loss trends do little to address the pesky pockets of fat stored under our chin, around the inside of the knee, and the armpit area, also known as “prom fat.” Cool Mini has the ability to smooth out places that will literally let you put out your best face forward, give your legs an extra pep in their step, and look your best in a tank top.

This FDA-approved fat reduction process does just what it claims- it completely destroys fat cells in the treated area rather than simply eliminate water waste unlike other gimmicky products on the market.

Because CoolSculpting Mini is a non-surgical procedure, there is no need for pain medication, long recovery times, scarring, or risk of any health complications.

Ideal Candidates

The best candidates for this procedure are patients who have small bulges of fat that have been resistant to diet and exercise or those with submental fullness. Proper patient selection is important since lax skin may be produced if CoolSculpting is performed on areas with significant skin excess or on skin with poor elasticity.

What You Should Know:

  • There is no pretreatment preparation and no downtime.
  • You can minimize bruising in the area being treated by avoiding aspirin, ibuprofen, or Aleve (or other medications that affect bleeding risk) for a week prior to treatment.
  • This procedure has minimal discomfort and does not require the use of pain medication.
  • CoolMini treatment in an area takes about one hour.
  • Your licensed provider will take before photos of the area then mark the area specifically being treated.
  • A thin layer of a jelly-like substance will be applied to the area being treated. While sitting comfortably, the applicator is appropriately placed and you should feel a minimal amount of suction as CoolSculpting goes to work extracting only enough cold energy to selectively target fat cells. Other cells and tissue, including skin, remain unharmed. In general, the skin overlying areas of excess fat does contract around the new shape.
  • CoolMini treatments are effective in men and women of all skin colors and types, and a variety of ages.
  • You’ll see results in as little as three weeks, but the most dramatic results occur one to three months after treatment.

Your Consultation

You’ll meet with a CoolSculpting clinician during a one-on-one consultation. Our aestheticians have specialized training in the CoolSculpting procedure. Your CoolSculpting clinician will take the time to discuss a holistic approach to your goals for reshaping your body. Together, you’ll look at your whole body from different angles and then focus on specific areas where you want to eliminate fat.

The Coolsculpting Mini Treatment Experience

There is no significant preparation you’ll need to do before your first treatment. Our specialists will explain any essential steps during your consultation to ensure you have the best results possible. Each CoolSculpt Mini treatment will likely take an entire hour as these more delicate areas of the body take more time to complete. The number of treatments will vary depending on how much fat is in the area, as well as the number of areas the patient wishes to target during their sessions. Our specialists will consult on how to best achieve your desired results.

Before the CoolSculpting session begins, your skin is cleaned before a sanitary gel is applied over the region to be treated. The applicator is placed on the skin and suction is introduced to pull fat cells closer to the surface to ensure as many cells as possible are exposed to the decreased temperatures.

Because of this slight suction sensation, the skin over this treated area could appear bruised or have prolonged redness which will typically diminish within 24-48 hours after treatment. The sub-freezing temperature exposure will leave skin feeling numb immediately following treatment but should subside no longer than 15 minutes after the session is completed.

Besides the successful science behind CoolSculpting procedures, what makes this treatment unique is that patients are able to ‘do life’ as the session is happening! Reading, watching your favorite TV shows, working on laptops, catching up on social media, and even napping are all possible while we are freezing the fat off your body.

Coolsculpting vs. Liposuction

CoolSculpting Mini’s method of fat cell removal is non-invasive, requires no anesthesia, no incisions, no stitches, and zero downtime whatsoever.

CoolSculpting and Liposuction both reduce the number of fat deposits in the body by eliminating it and have permanent results as long as the patient adheres to a healthy, post-treatment lifestyle. However, Liposuction is an invasive, surgical procedure that requires anesthesia and recovery time. Incisions are made in different parts of the body, including sensitive and high-risk areas such as the chin and knees. The liposuction apparatus is inserted under the skin and manipulated around to vacuum out fat cells. Because there is always an inherent risk in any surgical procedure, Liposuction is not for everyone. Potential patients can’t always afford the recovery time, medical risks, and temporary lifestyle adjustments that often put a strain on them, and their loved ones.

Unlike Liposuction recovery time and recovery risks, the side effects with CoolSculpting are relatively minor and vary from patient to patient.

The targeted sub-temperature exposure in controlled areas damages the structure of fat cells by freezing them. Once damaged, the body removes those cells through natural processes. Most notably, skin sensitivity, bruising, redness, and slight swelling are the most common immediate side effects, but for most patients, these irritations subside within 24-48 hours of treatment.

CoolSculpting Mini Results

After just a single session with CoolSculpting Mini, most targeted areas will visually exhibit less fat accumulation, although the real visual difference can take up to two to three months to achieve. Studies have shown that subcutaneous fat layers are reduced between 20%-25% upon completion of treatment.

During the consultation, our medical aesthetician will perform a physical assessment to determine whether CoolSculpting Mini is the appropriate solution for your specific problem. Because all bodies are different, the number of sessions required to see optimum results will vary from patient to patient.

Treatment plans are also tailored to budgetary restrictions, personal goals, patient availability, and commitment level.

When To Expect Results

The process of eliminating damaged cells and working through fat layers will take time. Measurably noticeable results will be seen 2-3 months into the process, but final results could take up to 6 months to achieve. It is also important to note that even after your last session, your body will continue to naturally and painlessly eliminate fat cells for up to 6 months.

How Long Will Results Last?

Life choices play an integral part in maintaining the results of CoolSculpting Mini but treatments are meant to be permanent as long as the patient maintains a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise and eating a nutritionally balanced diet.

Price

The price for the CoolSculpting procedure varies depending on your area(s) of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. Your CoolSculpting clinician and you will work together to create a customized treatment plan that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
