Hampton Roads CoolMini Double Chin Reduction

Bye Bye Bulges

We all have “problem areas.” And sometimes, the smallest ones can be the most annoying. You know, that little bulge by your bra strap or a double chin that appears when you go to snap a selfie. Diet and exercise sometimes aren’t enough to tone up these areas, making them a frustrating fact you’ve simply had to live with. Not anymore!

The CoolSculpting® family of treatments just got a little bigger at PSCHR, and we’re excited to offer you the opportunity to spot-reduce stubborn fat in more areas than ever.

The CoolMini™ is specially designed to help slim down small pockets of fat under your chin, above your knees, or around your armpits without surgery, needles, or downtime.

How CoolMini works to reduce your most stubborn fat deposits

Just like traditional CoolSculpting, the CoolMini applicator uses patented cryolipolysis technology to rapidly and safely cool fat cells to the specific temperature of breakdown—without harming surrounding skin and tissues. Once these targeted cells have broken down, your body naturally metabolizes them over the course of about three months.

But what does that mean for you? It means after one short, comfortable treatment, you’ll start noticing a gradual reduction in your double chin, with final results taking shape around the 90 day mark. (And you won’t have to undergo surgery, get pricked with needles, or take time off work to see great results!)

Where does CoolMini work best?

CoolMini is a patient-favorite for lessening fullness under the chin, but it’s also a great option for spot-reducing small, stubborn pockets of fat in other areas.

We’ve seen great results using CoolMini for:

  • Toning below the jawline
  • Reducing bulges around the armpit (“bra bulges”)
  • Slimming pockets of fat above the knee

CoolMini may be the right choice for you if you’re concerned with small areas of excess fat that aren’t quite big enough for other treatments but are difficult to tone with diet or exercise.

What to expect from your CoolMini treatment at PSCHR

The first step for any patient hoping to address a concern is a private, complimentary consultation with one of our board certified plastic surgeons or talented, highly trained skin and laser specialists.

During your consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your concerns and goals, in addition to learning about all of your options at PSCHR. If CoolMini is a good fit for you, we’ll take you to a private room where you can get cozy and comfortable for the duration of your treatment.

One of the best parts about CoolMini is that most patients see great results after just one, 30-60 minute long treatment. We’ll begin by mapping out the area for optimal treatment and then carefully place the CoolMini applicator in a way that will ensure natural-looking results.

Does CoolSculpting hurt?

When we first apply the CoolMini device, it’s normal to feel a brief period of intense cold and pressure. This sensation typically lasts just a few minutes—and patients report that it is very bearable. In fact, our patients often watch their favorite TV show, read a book, or catch up on work during treatment!

At the end of your treatment, we will remove the applicator and carefully massage the area, which will be fully numb.

What happens after treatment?

You get to resume your day! The treatment area may be a bit pink immediately after, but you’ll be able to participate in all of your normal activities right away. Some patients may experience a minimal amount of swelling within the first few days of treatment, but this should subside soon after.

You’ll start noticing a gradual reduction in fullness that will continue for about 90 days, leaving you with a noticeably less fat!
