Two of the most difficult places on the body to lose fat and tone up is the chin and neck. To add to this not-so-great news, aging, weight loss and genetics can also cause our chins and necks to sag, creating the unsightly “turkey neck,” which can make our face and neck look much larger. Even worse, these areas cannot be covered with clothing unless you want to wear turtlenecks and scarves all year long! Slimming down the chin and neck can feel next to impossible, and considering the lack of exercise videos and diet plans available for targeting those specific areas, it is a huge problem for both men and women who are trying hard to regain a slender and youthful appearance. With our face being one of the first things people see when we walk into a room, we want to look and feel confident with our appearance. Fortunately, there is good news for anyone looking for a non-surgical way to reduce that stubborn double chin and contour the face and neck.
What is Coolsculpting
Coolsculpting is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction, a surgical procedure used to eliminate stubborn fat cells in the body. Patients have been using Coolsculpting on large areas such as the abdomen, flanks and thighs for some time, but it wasn’t until recently that the makers of the Coolsculpting applicator introduced a smaller version tailored for areas such as the chin and neck. Coolsculpting reduces specific areas of fat by using the Coolsculpting applicator to freeze the extremely sensitive fat cells, causing them to die naturally without causing damage to the surrounding nerves and tissue. After the area is frozen, it will be slowly massaged to warm back up the skin and dissolve the dead cells. The deceased cells are then eliminated from the body through the lymphatic system over a period of time. Unlike losing weight, where your fat cells only shrink in size, these lipids cannot be replaced, therefore the number of fat cells in the area treated is reduced permanently.
The latest FDA-approved applicator, the CoolMini, is designed specifically to target submental fat, giving patients a slimmer looking face in just one or two sessions. In as early as three weeks, patients can start to see results. After six weeks, patients experience noticeable and measurable results that last. Over a period of 4 to 6 months, the body continues to expel the expired fat cells, creating a slender and beautiful face and neck.
One of the biggest benefits of using Coolsculpting is little to no downtime is required. Drop by the office for a quick 60-minute procedure and return to your normal activities for the rest of the day! The side effects are also minimal when compared to a surgical procedure, like a facelift. Most patients walk away with very little pain during the procedure and mild pain, swelling, redness and bruising for a few days after the procedure. After a few days, these symptoms disappear and you are left with a beautiful new chin and neck. Coolsculpting is a permanent body contouring solution as the fat cells that have been eliminated from the body cannot return, so the results that you see after using the CoolMini applicator can last a lifetime if you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
Thanks to Coolsculpting, you can now retire those worn out turtlenecks and scarves and bring out the scoop neck tees and tank tops. You are going to absolutely love how you look when you see yourself in the mirror and your self-confidence is going to skyrocket in just a few short weeks. Coolsculpting costs much less when compared to surgical procedures like liposuction, a facelift and/or a neck lift. Patients who have left reviews for the new CoolMini applicator have raved about how simple and easy the procedure is during both the freezing process and the healing time afterwards. They also highly praise their fantastic results, which gave them a youthful, refreshed look without scarring. As with most cosmetic procedures, Coolsculpting results will vary in each individual. It is for this reason that it is extremely important to schedule a consultaton before making a decision about Coolsculpting. You will be able to ask questions, see before and after photos of previous patients who have had the same procedure and have all the information you need to make the best decision for you. Having realistic goals will ensure that you are completely satisfied with your new look!
