As the weather cools down, everyone at our med spa is beginning to layer up with scarves and bulky clothing. But the CoolMini™ is giving our St. Louis patients a reason to forgo their turtlenecks and hooded sweatshirts this season. Designed to shrink fat on the chin and neck area known as “submental fat,” the CoolMini is the latest applicator for the CoolSculpting treatment. This option has just been cleared by the FDA, and we’re excited to offer it to our St. Louis patients. If you have unwanted fat creating a double chin, CoolMini might be right for you.
Here are 3 benefits that will make you want to reveal your slim, beautiful neck by the end of the season, instead of covering up with scarves and turtlenecks.
1. Short, easy treatment: One of the great features of CoolSculpting is it takes only about an hour to complete while you lie back and relax. This makes it easy to fit in to your busy schedule, especially around holiday events. The CoolMini applicator is smaller than the CoolSculpting applicators used on the abdomen and legs. However, the process is the exact same, effectively freezing fat cells in the treated area. After being exposed to the cold temperature, the fat cells die off, and the body metabolizes them.
2. No downtime: Many patients are concerned that having cosmetic treatments around the holidays will prevent them from spending time with family and friends. Luckily, the CoolSculpting treatment is completely non-invasive, so you’ll be able to return to your daily activities immediately after the treatment ends. Some patients have experienced minor bruising and discomfort in the treated area, but it did not prevent them from engaging in a normal routine.
3. Results by spring: Though you will likely notice results just a few weeks after your first treatment, the most dramatic results arise about 12 weeks after the second CoolSculpting session. If you elect to receive treatments during the late fall and early winter, you’ll see results just before the warm weather comes!
