Under-chin fat is a common problem among many men and women. Why? Because once fat pockets start to form below the chin, it’s nearly impossible to tackle the problem with diet and exercise alone. If you’ve begun to see the gradual appearance of that dreaded double chin and are ready to stop it in its tracks, CoolSculpting® can help.
CoolSculpting® is the world’s most popular non-surgical fat-reduction procedure on the market. The FDA-approved procedure has a wide variety of adaptors that can treat areas both large and small. For double chin treatment, CoolSculpting® uses the advanced CoolMini applicator.

How Does CoolMini Work?
CoolMini uses the same fat-freezing technology as CoolSculpting®. Your specialist will use an advanced handpiece to deliver freezing wavelengths deep below the surface of the skin. The wavelengths break down and rupture hard-to-treat fat while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed.
From there, your body does the rest. Fat cells that have been ruptured are naturally absorbed and flushed from the body. Once these cells are removed from below the chin, they’re unable to reform on their own. CoolMini produces long-term results when paired with a healthy lifestyle.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The majority of under-chin fat is easily treated with 1-2 CoolMini sessions. Some patients may need more treatments to see the results they want. During your in-person consult, Dr. Gallaher can help determine what’s right for you.
When Will I See Results from CoolMini?
Results from CoolMini are not immediate. Initial results from CoolMini can be seen in about 2-3 weeks after your first treatment session. Gradual improvement to your profile will continue to occur as fat cells are metabolized over the course of 4-6 months. Most patients love the subtle and discrete changes that CoolMini allows.
Am I A Good Candidate for CoolMini?
CoolMini works best for patients who are within 30-pounds of their ideal weight. CoolSculpting® is not intended as a weight loss procedure but rather a fat-reduction treatment. If you’d like to reduce the appearance of your double chin without downtime and have realistic expectations about what the procedure can do, you may be a good candidate for CoolMini.
