Question: I have a double chin but don’t want surgery. I heard the CoolMini, made by CoolSculpt, gets rid of double chin? How effective is CoolMini?
Answer: A double chin can be caused by excess neck fat, sagging neck skin, vertical muscle neck bands or any combination of the above. A receding chin can also contribute to the appearance of a double chin.
In your 20’s and 30’s, a double chin is mostly due to excess neck fat and/or a receding chin. As we age into our 40’s or higher, double chins are more often caused by loose skin or vertical muscle bands rather than excess fat.
While CoolMini reduces neck fat, it does not tighten loose skin or muscle bands in the neck. The end result can be a worsening appearance of a double chin where you could end up needing a surgical necklift for correction.
It’s important to seek a qualified facial plastic surgeon who understands neck anatomy and how it changes with age. Infini is a very effective non-surgical option for double chin. Infini can tighten loose skin as well as improve wrinkles in the neck with no downtime. CoolMini is typically more suitable for a much younger patient who has not begun the aging process and does not have loose skin or muscle bands.
