Do you find that you have a double chin and would like to remove it? With the help of modern technology, CoolSculpting® uses a patented cooling process to target and eliminate fat cells in the submental area (chin) for the long term. This series of non-surgical treatments do not require any needles and do not result in any downtime.
How does it work?
1) The CoolSculpting® procedure targets and cools fat cells to temperatures that trigger fat cells apoptosis (programmed cell death).
2) There is no change to the appearance of nerves or other tissues as the lipids in fat crystallises at a warmer temperature than water in other types of cells.
3) After treatment, fat cells enter an apoptotic death sequence and are gradually removed naturally in the next few weeks and months.
4) The treated fat cells are gone for good and the thickness of the double chin is reduced.
During your first consultation, our CoolSculpting® clinician will take time to discuss your goals for reshaping your submental (chin) area.
During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator specially designed for the submental area will be applied to your chin. A series of controlled cooling is then delivered to the targeted fat for approximately 45 minutes.
You will feel intense cold initially but these sensations (mild pinching, tingling, stinging) usually subside in 5 to 10 minutes as the area numbs.
This varies for individuals as the amount of submental fats is different for everyone. The average patient requires 2 to 3 times of treatment. There is an option to increase if more results are desired.
Controlled cooling (up to -9°C) is delivered through the applicator to freeze the targeted fat. Therefore, you will feel intense cold initially but these sensations (mild pinching, tingling, stinging) usually subside in 5 to 10 minutes as the area numbs.
Common side effects include temporary redness, itching or skin sensitivity. There may also be a sensation of fullness in the back of the throat. Nonetheless, these side effects are temporary and only lasts for a few days.
Feel free to share any concerns you may have with our CoolSculpting® clinician before the treatment.
The CoolSculpting® procedure is based on many years of research and sound science. More than 70 scientific papers, clinical journal papers, technical reports have been published. You may refer to them here.
