Dr. Omar Ibrahimi, Dermatologist and Director of the Connecticut Skin Institute, is one of the first physicians nationwide to offer the newly FDA cleared CoolMini handpiece, a new applicator for the CoolSculpting procedure which allows the removal of submental fat (double chin). The procedure is entirely non-invasive, with little to no recovery time, no surgery and minimal risks. Optimal results can be achieved in as few as one to two treatments.

“CoolSculpting is well-proven technology developed by two dermatologists at Harvard Medical School. It involves minimal discomfort, and can have a modest to profound effect on the fat in treated areas. The technology sounds too good to be true but is backed up by research performed at Massachusetts General Hospital. We will use the CoolMini applicator to treat unwanted double chin fat. Our center is also one of the few offices in the country that is busy enough to use two CoolSculpting devices, thus allowing us to treat patients in as efficient a manner as possible. This is the reason the company has selected our practice to be one of the first to offer this new treatment option," says Dr. Omar Ibrahimi, Director, Connecticut Skin Institute/

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared technology that involves placing a device onto the skin. The proprietary technology uses a controlled cooling protocol to freezes the fat cells in a specific fashion. Those fat cells then naturally die. The change is lasting as adults cannot make new fat cells. Patients simply need to maintain a healthy diet and exercise to preserve their results. CoolSculpting is proving to be an effective and safe way for a person to reduce their size and the appearance of fat on their bodies. A variety of headpieces allow many areas on the body to be treated. Other popular areas include the abdomen, love handles, and flanks.

“This procedure is not liposuction, which until now has been the most effective way to remove fat cells. Liposuction involves surgery, anesthesia, incisions and mechanically removing the fat. The risks with liposuction include mycobacterial infections, scarring, and even death. With CoolSculpting, the entire procedure is non-invasive, and many of my patients resume full activity immediately," says Dr. Omar Ibrahimi, Director, Connecticut Skin Institute. Given these advantages, CoolSculpting is quickly becoming considered the liposuction alternative.

However, the procedure requires the evaluation and skill of an experienced physician to ensure optimal results. The Connecticut Skin Institute has the added advantage in that its medical director, Dr. Omar Ibrahimi trained at the birthplace of CoolSculpting and has trained and served as faculty with the inventors of the technology. “The success of the treatment requires a proper evaluation and assessment. Simply because an office has the device does not ensure a successful and natural outcome,” says Dr. Ibrahimi. Additionally, Dr. Omar Ibrahimi has many non-surgical options to help contour, tighten and remove fat from the chin and neck area.
