Most people have at least one cosmetic feature that they’d like to improve – and more often than not, the culprit is stubborn fatty tissue. Fortunately, we live in a time when non-surgical fat reduction can target specific areas and create natural-looking results.
If you have a double chin that’s sapping your confidence, then you may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting. As its name implies, CoolSculpting is a treatment that chills fatty tissue to contour the body. Those fat cells then die, and the body expels them naturally.
The technical name for CoolSculpting is “cryolipolysis.” The procedure has earned international acclaim as a safe and highly effective alternative to traditional liposuction. For patients who want to remove only a small amount of fat, CoolSculpting may actually offer better results than liposuction – and you won’t have to worry about suture scars or a lengthy recovery time.

Can CoolSculpting Reduce My Double Chin?
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports that the number of non-surgical fat reduction treatments skyrocketed 42 percent in 2015 – proving that more Americans are opting for safe, effective procedures to contour their bodies. Many of these patients were not seeking dramatic fat loss; rather, they wanted to contour small areas of their bodies – such as the chin.
CoolSculpting is a popular option for people who want to tighten their chin area. During your treatment, a CoolSculpting practitioner will attach an applicator to targeted spots on your chin. The applicator will then chill the fat cells to begin the process of cryolipolysis.
A 2014 study in the Journal of Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology that examined the safety and effectiveness of CoolSculpting produced some stunning results: CoolSculpting was shown to reduce subcutaneous fat in targeted areas by up to 25 percent in a single treatment – and 86 percent of patients reported significant improvements.
Online CoolSculpting reviews praise the procedure for being fast and pain-free. Because CoolSculpting requires neither needles nor incisions, most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
Each session takes approximately one hour, but some patients opt to treat large areas or several areas in a single visit, which may take longer. Because the process is so quick and comfortable, CoolSculpting has been nicknamed “The Lunch Break Procedure.”
If you use CoolSculpting to target your double chin, then you may notice a sensation of fullness in the throat. This is normal and should resolve itself within a few days. There have not been any reports of serious side effects from CoolSculpting.
