Double Chin

What is a double chin?

A double chin, also known as submental fat, is that unwelcome layer of fatty skin that builds up below the chin, negatively impacting your profile and in some cases making you appear much heavier than you are. A double chin may be associated with weight gain, but not always. Sometimes it is the results of genetics, or a product of the aging process. While dieting and exercise may cause some minor improvement, they are typically not enough to bring comprehensive change to the area. A cosmetic intervention may be necessary.

What treatments can help treat a double chin?

Cool Mini

In 2015, the makers of CoolSculpting introduced the Cool Mini, an advanced non-invasive method of reducing fat in smaller, harder to reach areas such as beneath the chin. The Cool Mini requires no downtime, is painless, and has few side effects. The procedure is appropriate for anyone struggling with submental fat. The fat cells are frozen, and then escorted out of the body as waste, never to return. The Cool Mini can remove as much as 25% of excess fat in a single session.
