Fat under the chin is a common aesthetic issue for many people, and double chins are a tough problem to get rid of and tend to worsen with age. If your double chin is bothering you, CoolSculpting® treatment at Achieve Body Sculpting in Phoenix could free you from chin fat forever. To find out more about CoolSculpting’s safe, noninvasive treatment solution for your double chin, call the clinic today, or book an appointment online.
A double chin, which is technically known as submental fat, develops when fat layers form below your chin, and it’s a very common condition. Double chins are mostly associated with being overweight but may also be due to genetics or the effects of aging, and once they’ve formed they’re difficult to get rid of, even with dieting and targeted exercises. That means that if you diet and achieve your target weight, you could still retain your double chin.
CoolSculpting is a safe, noninvasive alternative to surgery and liposuction that works by freezing fat cells in your chin and destroying them. Your body’s natural processes then dispose of the dead cells over the following weeks and months, leaving you with a more chiseled and defined look.
CoolSculpting technology is a permanent solution to the problem of submental fat, as once the fat cells die they can’t grow back, so your double chin is gone for good.
CoolSculpting is noninvasive: There’s no incision into your skin and no need for anesthetic. Your technician applies a gel pad and applicator to your double chin to deliver the cooling treatment, and you’ll notice it does feel cold on your skin at first.
The initial intense cold soon subsides as your chin goes numb, and you aren’t at any risk of getting too cold because the CoolSculpting applicator uses sensors that activate a shutdown mechanism if they detect that you’re getting too cold.
The applicator uses a vacuum to draw fatty tissue into the treatment cup, so you may experience a pulling sensation or mild tingling or pinching. You may also feel a sense of fullness in the back of your throat.
You’ll need an average of two treatments of two cycles each, usually two weeks apart. Each submental fat treatment session lasts around 45 minutes, depending on the extent of the fatty tissue treatment area, and you could start to see results within that first month. It can take up to six months for the full effects to show.
