You’ve probably heard about CoolSculpting and its revolutionary noninvasive freezing technology that kills fat cells to shrink areas on the body like the abdomen and thighs with no downtime. But now we’ve got word that the company received FDA-clearance to treat another common problem area: under the chin. (A 2014 study conducted by The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery showed that 68 percent of people were concerned with chin and neck fat.)
This new treatment area means the introduction of a new applicator as well: the CoolMini, which is designed to treat smaller pockets of fat. “I believe this new applicator will provide a truly compelling alternative to other popular devices currently used to treat and contour the neck, like liposuction,” said Mark Foley, president and CEO of Zeltiq, in the company’s press release.

Patients may see results as early as three weeks, but full results are generally seen between one and three months after treatment. You may need more than one treatment to get the full effect, which will be determined by you and your doctor during consultation.
More than 500 CoolMini treatments have been performed in clinical trials, and the company said the results have been very encouraging. “I have been particularly pleased with the positive feedback we are receiving from both physicians and patients,” said Foley in the release.
