RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif., Oct. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Fat was dealt another blow recently when Zeltiq, the manufacturer of CoolSculpting®, the revolutionary body contouring treatment, received expanded FDA clearance for their new CoolMini™ applicator.
The CoolMini applicator's unique size, shape and curvature is specifically designed to treat smaller pockets of fat. It's perfect for under the chin where what is known as submental fat accumulates giving rise to a double chin. Other spots it can address include puffs of fat near the arm pits and small amounts of pinchable abdominal fat that resist exercise and dieting efforts.
"CoolSculpting is very popular in our practice. People really appreciate non-invasive, non-surgical, no-downtime treatment options," said Dr. Timothy Jochen, a board certified dermatologist at Contour Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Rancho Mirage, CA. "Cosmetic surgery is all about tweaking little things that make a big difference. With the CoolMini, we can now help people freeze away double chins or get rid of other small pockets of fat that traditional CoolSculpting couldn't reach before."
CoolSculpting is based upon the research of two Harvard scientists who observed that cold could be applied non-invasively to remove fat. CoolSculpting will continue to effectively address "muffin tops" and "love handles," but the addition of the CoolMini applicator to its repertoire handily expands the procedure's capabilities. This is now the sixth targeted CoolSculpting applicator – proving that body contouring is indeed a custom-tailored procedure and Contour Dermatology offers them all including:
- CoolCore™ – abdomen and core area
- CoolCurve™– for flanks
- CoolSmooth™ – other areas of pinchable fat like outer thighs
- CoolFit™ – for straighter areas like arms and inner thighs
- CoolMax™ – for larger circumference areas
- Cool-Mini™ – for double chins and other small pockets of fat
A leading dermatologist, Dr. Jochen specializes in medical and cosmetic dermatology and cosmetic surgery procedures including mini-facelift, neck lift, blepharoplasty and hair transplant surgery. He is one of the top facial filler and Botox injectors in the nation. Dr. Jochen is also an Associate Professor of Dermatology at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles where he's been named "Teacher of the Year" several times. His peers also have voted him as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor. Contour Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery Center has four Southern California locations.
