Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery: CoolMini™ Applicator for Submental Fullness
Improve the Appearance of Your Chin and Jawline without Surgery or Needles!*
One of the newest catch-phrases in the world of aesthetic medicine is “submental fullness”, but in fact, this is simply a fancy term for an age-old problem: the double chin. Submental fullness is caused by the accumulation of excess subcutaneous fat around the muscles of the chin, usually due to genetics, weight gain, or the natural aging process. Traditionally, submental fullness has been one of the more difficult aesthetic problems to tackle, due to its location around the delicate neck region, and patients concerned about the appearance of a double chin were faced with a stark choice: surgical liposuction or simply “putting up with it”.
Now there is a third, better option! The makers of CoolSculpting® have introduced the CoolMini™ applicator specifically designed to target submental fullness. CoolSculpting® is a revolutionary technique that uses the power of cold to reduce stubborn fat pockets, and is quickly becoming one of the most popular non-invasive body contouring techniques. Until now, CoolSculpting has been ideal for helping patients achieve a slimmer, smoother, shapelier physique by targeting large volumes of excess fat such as “love handles”, “muffin tops”, and “saddle bags”. Now, the cutting-edge CoolMini™ applicator can, for the first time, direct this incredible fat-reduction technique to small volumes of fatty tissues in hard-to-reach places like the neck and chin.* Like CoolSculpting®, the CoolMini™ applicator is a non-surgical, non-invasive technique that targetsunwanted fat cells by freezing them, and enabling them to be absorbed by the body, for a sculpted, toned chin and jawline that allows your natural beauty to shine!*
Board Certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery are pleased to be counted among a respected group of CoolSculpting® specialists offering this truly revolutionary treatment for the reduction of the double chin. The CoolMini™ applicator is currently the only FDA-approved treatment for submental fullness that does not require heat, needles, or surgery.
The Revolutionary CoolMini™ Applicator
CoolSculpting® works by precisely targeting unwanted fatty tissues with cooling energy, freezing and killing the unwanted fat cells while the outer skin and surrounding tissues remain unaffected. Once the fat cells have died, they are slowly and comfortably reabsorbed by the body. CoolSculpting® is the perfect body contouring technology for the reduction of large volumes of fatty tissues, generally found in the abdomen, waist, and thighs, but until now, was not applicable to small volumes of fat in hard-to-reach places like the chin.*
With the introduction of the CoolMini™ applicator, all that has changed! The CoolMini™ applicator is precisely designed with the perfect size, shape, and curvature ideal for targeting small volumes of fat in the neck and chin region. Non-invasive, completely comfortable, safe, and highly effective, the CoolMini™ applicator has been thoroughly tested and approved by the FDA.
CoolSculpting® with the CoolMini™ applicator is a short, simple procedure that will fit perfectly into your busy lifestyle, and optimal results can usually be achieved in only one, sometimes two, treatments! Side effects and downtime are negligible, and you can return to your normal routine immediately. You will notice your slimmer chin about three weeks after your treatment, as the body begins to absorb the treated fat cells, and results will continue to improve over the course of three to four months. Many patients have experienced a fat reduction of 20%-25%!*
