Introduced by the same people who created CoolSculpting (ZELTIQ), the CoolMini applicator is ideal for the treatment for fat accumulation on the neck and under the chin. The size, shape and curvature of this applicator ensures that it will fit these small areas comfortably during the patented, proven Cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing) process. Results of treatment with the CoolMini applicator may be noticeable in as little as 3 weeks, and the most dramatic results within 1 to 3 months.

What is the CoolMini?
The accumulation of fat under the chin is a common concern for many people, and more people are seeking non invasive ways to treat this fat. Whether fat under the chin is a result of lifestyle, age or genetic factors, you cannot hide or disguise it with clothing or exercise it away. In the United States alone, 22.4 million people seek non-invasive fat reduction solutions (source: Zeltiq). CoolSculpting has this solution thanks to the CoolMini.
When is ‘no’ a good word? When we can say no to needles, no incisions, no need for anesthesia, and no recovery time. CoolSculpting patients usually resume their normal activities — work, gym and sports — the same day as the procedure, which makes CoolSculpting a good choice for everyone seeking an effective non-surgical alternative to liposuction. The CoolMini applicator is designed for this type of treatment, made for small volume areas of fat thanks to an applicator that is designed to fit these problematic areas.
The procedure is both safe and effective. CoolMini is a new procedure based on the CoolSculpting method and since its launch in September 2015, studies have shown strong results from over 500 CoolMini treatments in clinical trials and great results on its initial launch in Europe earlier in the year.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting uses a patented and clinically proven cooling process called Cryolipolysis® to target and reduce fat cells without causing damage to surrounding cells and tissue.
Developed by ZELTIQ, the goal of this process is a natural and gradual reduction of body fat. In the CoolSculpting procedure, the physician applies a cooling applicator to the area chosen for fat reduction, the applicator cup uses vacuum pressure to draw the tissue between the cooling panels, the applicator then delivers precisely controlled cooling to the fat cells in the tissue between the panels, and the cooling begins a process that gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer. The result is a reduction in fat bulges for most patients within four months. The fat cells in the treated area are gradually reduced through the body’s normal metabolic processes.
