CoolSculpting’s Newest FDA Approval
CoolSculpting has been a well-known and highly demanded non-invasive fat reduction treatment for some time.
Most individuals think of the device being used to treat larger areas of the body, but it is also used to reduce a double chin. For many patients with submental fullness, fat and loose skin are both an issue.
Fortunately, CoolSculpting is now the first and only non-surgical device that is FDA-cleared to treat submental fat and laxity in one procedure.
CoolSculpting Can Treat Large and Small Parts of the Body
CoolSculpting first gained FDA-approval in 2010 to treat abdominal fat using very cold temperatures that destroyed and eliminated fat cells.
Patients became attracted to this non-invasive treatment because it offered a way to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat with no downtime.
CoolSculpting has continued to expand their FDA-approved applicators to address patient concerns in other parts of the body including love handles, thighs, chin, and upper arms.
Eliminate a Double Chin With the CoolMini Applicator
Unlike some larger areas of the body, a double chin can be especially resistant to reduction through diet and exercise alone.
Therefore, when CoolSculpting introduced its CoolMini applicator for the chin, it quickly became a popular and effective treatment.
Two treatments of the CoolMini applicator spaced 4 weeks apart is the typical procedure protocol.
CoolSculpting Receives FDA-Clearance for Submental Fat and Laxity in Double Chins
Though CoolSculpting is clinically-proven to reduce submental fat, its skin tightening abilities were recently put to the test with positive findings.
After an 18-week clinical study, 77 percent of patients presented with improved skin laxity and 75 percent reported that their chin appears more toned after the CoolSculpting treatment.
CoolSculpting’s FDA-clearance can be a game-changer in the treatment of double chins. Aesthetic providers can now offer patients with fat and loose skin a procedure that will address both concerns in a 45 -minute treatment.
