Once the fat cells are eliminated from beneath the chin and along the jawline they cannot return to this area, providing patients with long-term results.
Chesapeake, Virginia (PRWEB) March 10, 2016
Chesapeake Vein Center and MedSpa now treats double chin, also known as submental fullness, with FDA-cleared CoolSculpting®.
CoolSculpting was first discovered at Harvard Medical School when it was observed that children who ate a lot of popsicles growing up got dimples. It was found that fat cells, when exposed to controlled cooling for a period of time, undergo gradual reduction. Now, non-invasive CoolSculpting treats the double chin without needles, surgery, scars, or downtime.
The double chin is an area of stubborn fat along the chin and jawline that is difficult to reduce with diet and exercise alone. CoolSculpting freezes the fat cells underneath the chin and along the jawline. The fat cells are frozen and eliminated from the body through the lymphatic system over the months following treatment. Once the fat cells are eliminated from beneath the chin and along the jawline they cannot return to this area, providing patients with long-term results. Multiple treatments may be required for optimal results.
