Contouring the Chin with CoolSculpting

January 29, 2020

For many of us, the chin is one of those “last holdouts.” Even when we’ve followed our fitness and wellness program faithfully, even when we’ve reached our weight goals, there can be bits and pieces that stay defiantly staring back at us. For some it’s inner thighs, for others the abdomen, while some say it is the “love handles” or “muffin top.”

For others, it’s the chin. Right there where it can’t be ignored sits a feature we’d rather be without. It can persist despite our best efforts, if gravity and heredity – those powerful, natural forces – are working against us. Relieving a double chin often calls for more than extra exercise and fewer breaks from good nutrition. Not surprising then, that one of the primary targets of full facelifts, in the early days, was the double chin. Rectifying it proved to be one of the most difficult effects for plastic surgery to accomplish with a natural-looking outcome.

As a result, non-surgical options for contouring the chin are popular and growing rapidly. Heat, cold, and electromagnetic waves have been used for years in various processes for reducing the double chin.

CoolSculpting and the CoolMini

CoolSculpting has been in use for years, and more than four million treatments make it the No. 1 non-surgical fat-reduction treatment in the world. Dermatology Consultants has performed more than 10,000 of those treatments, making us the top CoolSculpting provider in Georgia.

CoolSculpting freezes fat cells, allowing the body to discharge them naturally – and permanently. That’s the cool part. CoolSculpting can enable you to contour your body to conform with your own goals, because there is no change in the fat distribution over untreated areas. That’s the sculpting part. It’s been used with success and satisfaction for all the difficult areas we mentioned earlier that can resist diet and exercise alone.

A key advantage of CoolSculpting, and the CoolMini, is that fat cells are actually eliminated. When we lose weight, our fat cells simply shrink. They are still there, awaiting a refill, and if we gain weight again the cells waste no time getting big again. CoolSculpting reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas by 20% to 25% – and those cells never come back. So, you are much more likely to maintain the results of your body-sculpting or chin-contouring effort.

A precision applicator is what makes the proven results of CoolSculpting available under the chin. A wand that takes in less tissue than those used for tummy and thighs made those same advantages available right under the foundation of the face, in an FDA-approved treatment method called CoolMini.

The Results Can Transform

The angle under the jaw, the cervicomental angle, is what makes a jawline attractive – or not. It has a powerful effect, too, on perceptions of the face above it. It’s no wonder the interest is so substantial in non-invasive ways of sculpting that angle.

At Dermatology Consultants, we’re dedicated to helping you feel your best, look your best, and experience the satisfaction of seeing your goals come to life – even if that means toning the skin on fewer chins! Just contact us to get started.
