How Does CoolMini Work?
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, through diet and exercise, CoolSculpting is FDA approval for the CoolMini applicator, which gives us a 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 three to four months to see the final result, and many patients benefit from 2-3 treatments. Research shows that as much as 25% of your unwanted fat can be removed in a single CoolSculpting session.
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.
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.
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.

- Your licensed provider will take before photos of the area then mark the area specifically being treated.
- CoolMini treatments are effective in people of all skin colors and types, and a variety of ages.
- Most dramatic results occur three to four months after treatment.
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.
When To Expect Results
The process of eliminating damaged cells and working through fat layers will take time. Measurably noticeable results will be seen 3-4 months into the process. 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.
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.
