EUGENE, Oregon, Dec. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Excess fat under the chin is a common complaint from men and women. Traditionally, options for reducing fat in this area were limited. "Patients often come to me with concerns about excess fat around their chin and jaw," Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kiya Movassaghi explains. "In the past, effective treatment of this area required surgical techniques, such as submental liposuction or neck lift surgery."
That is why Dr. Movassaghi is pleased to now offer patients a nonsurgical alternative: CoolMini™. Developed by the makers of CoolSculpting®, the CoolMini is the first device to use cryolipolysis to nonsurgically reduce submental fullness. This new double chin treatment uses a specially designed applicator to cool fat cells in the chin and jaw area to the point of breakdown, providing patients with up to a 20% reduction of fat. When the cells die, they are naturally and permanently metabolized by the body, effectively slimming the area over the course of approximately three months.
"Certain parts of the body are quite difficult to tone with diet and exercise alone," says Dr. Movassaghi. "I am pleased we now have a non-surgical way to help patients reduce fat in those areas—particularly under the chin, where genetics and aging play a large role in the accumulation of fat."
The CoolMini applicator's design, curvature, and size make it ideal for treating the area under the chin, in addition to its being suited for treating fat above the knees, around the armpit, and other smaller areas that are difficult to slim down. The CoolMini is the newest application of CoolSculpting's cryolipolysis technology, which was first used to reduce larger bulges of fat on the abdomen, thighs, and flanks.
Dr. Movassaghi reports that patients have responded positively to both CoolMini and CoolSculpting. The fact that cryolipolysis does not require surgery or needles makes it attractive to patients who want to see noticeable fat reduction without downtime. Dr. Movassaghi adds, "As new and improved technology is developed, I will continue to provide my patients with the safest and most effective options for addressing their concerns."
