Coolsculpting Could Be The Solution For Getting Rid Of Your Double Chin

You may know that CoolSculpting is a way to get rid of stubborn areas of fat on your abdomen and thighs, but you may not know the treatment can get rid of fat on your neck that gives you a double chin. It's frustrating to have pockets of fat anywhere, but the situation is worse when the fat is highly visible on your neck. A double chin can make you look older or unattractive, which is unfortunate when you are at your ideal weight. Here's how CoolSculpting might be able to help.

CoolSculpting Targets Small Areas Of Fat 

CoolSculpting isn't a fat loss procedure as much as it is a body sculpting treatment. You'll need to be fairly close to your goal bodyweight to get the best results. The treatment can target small bulges of fat just about anywhere on your body, including your chin. The equipment uses cold temperatures to kill unwanted fat cells. The application of cold temperatures is precise so a small area can be treated without affecting areas nearby. Plus, fat cells can be targeted without harming skin cells.

A Small Applicator Is Placed On Your Skin

A CoolSculpting treatment is given with an applicator that fits under your chin. There are different sizes to choose from depending on the area being treated. The device uses suction to lift the skin and fat up so cold temperatures can be applied. The procedure isn't too painful, so you don't need anesthesia.

The practitioner applies gel to your skin and then cold temperatures. The cold temperature helps numb the area to control uncomfortable feelings. However, you'll probably still feel suction from the vacuum applicator and other sensations such as tugging on the skin.

You Might Need More Than One Treatment

You might need more than one CoolSculpting treatment depending on how much fat needs to be removed. You may not see results from your treatments right away. Although fat cells are killed by the cold temperatures, it takes several weeks for the cells to be processed by your body. It might be a few months before you'll see the end results and new appearance of your chin.

CoolSculpting Is A Good Alternative To Surgery

It's difficult, if not impossible, to get rid of a double chin through exercise and dieting, especially if the excess fat on your skin is caused by genetics. Surgery is a possible option where fat is removed and sagging skin is tightened, but then you have a long recovery time. CoolSculpting is a much easier process to endure and can be affordable too.
