Skinspirations to Deliver CoolSculpting’s New “CoolMini” Fat-Busting Technology to Eliminate Double Chins

Share Article

Non-Invasive procedure cleared by FDA eliminates double chins and stubborn fat from other areas without liposuction or injections.

Dr. Cynthia Elliott, owner of Skinspirations, announces the company's newest service.

The CoolMini non-surgical cosmetic procedure takes your body sculpting goals the last nine yards, with incredible results on those hard to get to but highly visible fat deposits.

Dr. Cynthia Elliott, owner of Skinspirations, a leading cosmetic medicine practice based in Florida, will be among the first to offer patients CoolMini, an extension of the widely popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure known as CoolSculpting. The new CoolMini applicator recently received FDA clearance for the treatment of small volume areas of fat that the existing larger applicators were not appropriate for. “Diet and exercise can do a lot to improve a body’s aesthetics,” Dr. Elliott said, “but it’s almost impossible to spot reduce areas such as a double chin or small fat deposits under the arm or behind the knee—no matter how rigorous the workout or exacting the diet.” Dr. Elliott added, “The CoolMini non-surgical cosmetic procedure takes your body sculpting goals the last nine yards, with incredible results on those hard to get to but highly visible fat deposits.”

The small-area applicator employs the popular and proprietary CoolSculpting, an FDA-cleared technology owned and distributed by Zeltiq® Aesthetics. The CoolMini applicator is specifically designed to reduce stubborn fat bulges in smaller target areas that the larger CoolSculpting applicators are not designed to address. Both applicators use controlled cooling to effectively freeze and eliminate unwanted fat cells without surgery, downtime or the need for recovery.

The technology, trademarked Cryolipolysis®, is based on the scientific principle that fat cells are more sensitive to cold than the overlying skin and surrounding tissues. Drs. Manstein and R. Rox Anderson at the Wellman Center at Massachusetts General Hospital, a teaching affiliate for Harvard Medical School, conducted the initial breakthrough research.

Andy Vutam of Zeltiq announced at the release, stating, “The CoolMini is the newest addition to our growing CoolSculpting portfolio, which uses patented fat freezing technology backed by scientific evidence. Our existing applicators for larger areas, such as the abdomen and thigh, have seen great results and there was a demand from both physicians and patients to treat smaller, more specific areas.” (1)

During the CoolMini procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the submental (under the chin) fat, thereby specifically targeting the “double chin”. Treatments take one hour and patients may re-treat the same area eight weeks after the initial treatment to achieve a further reduction in the fat layer. On average, each procedure results in a 20-25% reduction of fat in the treated area, and patients can start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of two to four months for most patients.

While CoolSculpting’s affordable costs put it within reach of most people, some who make their living from their looks also endorse it. In a Vanity Fair interview, supermodel Molly Sims told the story of how she tried to get rid of stubborn post-pregnancy fat with diet and exercise but finally “decided to try CoolSculpting since it is non-invasive, F.D.A.-cleared, and no-downtime. As a mama, that’s what we need. I did it ... and it totally worked!”

Dr. Elliott is excited to offer CoolMini to her patients. “The “double chin”, which can be a result of age, genetics or lifestyle, has been a common area of concern for many of my patients over the years. CoolMini gives us the ability to safely, easily and effectively target and contour this area with lasting results”.
