Another amazing non-surgical way to get rid of a double chin is with CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is an FDA approved treatment that freezes and crystallizes fat cells which are then flushed away over time by the body’s own metabolic processes. With Coolsculpting, a typical treatment lasts about one hour per treatment area. During this treatment, a technician places a gel pad over the area to be treated to act as a barrier between your body and the CoolSculpting device. Next, the device is cooled to its appropriate temperature and placed on the gel pad. The fat underneath the pad freezes, but not any of the surrounding organs, nerves or tissue since they freeze at a much lower temperature than the fat cells. Patients can return to their daily routines immediately after the CoolSculpting session.
Results will begin to show in 4-12 weeks after the first treatment. The average client needs one or two treatments to achieve their ideal results. That is a relatively short amount of time considering there is no recovery time as there would be with invasive surgical methods. Once fat cells are removed the treatment areas will look 20-25% smaller and those fat cells will not come back.
