Don’t Let the Name Fool You: CoolMini Really Packs a Punch at Stubborn Fat
The new CoolMini is ZELTIQ’s newest release in the CoolSculpting ® line of non-invasive fat reduction methods. For areas like underneath the chin or areas where there are curved, small pockets of fat, the CoolMini applicator is perfect!
ZELTIQ has had a booming success with its line of CoolSculpting ® non-invasive fat elimination methods. It began with the original applicator that targeted love handles and the thigh area. The overwhelming popularity of the applicator created a demand for the treatment areas to be increased. The back and back bra line were popular requested areas, along with the area under the chin often referred to as a “double chin.”
The tissue of the jawline that sages often comes with aging. Sometimes diet and exercise will not address this area. Submental fat, the fat under the chin is unfortunately almost impossible to hide under clothing. No one wants to wear a turtle neck in 90-degree weather.
So, ZELTIQ addressed this demand with the invention of a smaller curved applicator that is made especially for areas like the double chin. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved use of the CoolMini and demand has skyrocketed.
For obvious reasons, CoolSculpting ® is the most popular method for removal of fat without surgery. CoolSculpting ® was invented when scientists realized that extreme cold will cause fat cells to die off. This process, called Cryolipolysis, causes the fat cells to be naturally metabolized by the body’s liver and eliminated altogether. Once these cells are eliminated from the body, the tissue and skin around the area will revert back to the former taut appearance.
Treatment with the CoolMini takes around an hour. No downtime is required, and results are produced in as few as three weeks. Within two or three months, most patients have realized the full benefits.
The larger CoolSculpting ® applicators are targeted for larger area, such as the thigh and abdomen, and when used with the CoolMini on the double chin area, treatment time can last an hour, but several parts of the body can be treated.
Many patients have requested a non-invasive way to get rid of fat and ZELTIQ has delivered. The company continues to listen to the needs of the consumer and doctors by developing stronger and more effective applicators. In a recent study, CoolSculpting ® had a 93% satisfaction rate! Mark Foley, President of ZELTIQ, was reported to have said, “I have been particularly pleased with the very positive feedback we are receiving from both physicians and patients
The entire line of CoolSculpting ® is entirely safe and effective at removing fat around the lower back, flanks (love handles), thighs, abdomen, arms, and now the lower chin. With 22.4 million Americans interested in this noninvasive fat reduction procedure, it is no wonder that the demand for this procedure is quickly surpassing other noninvasive means to remove fat.
CoolSculpting ® is in no way advising patients to give up proper diet and regular exercise. Just the opposite is true. CoolSculpting ® is designed for areas of fat that diet and exercise can’t seem to rid.
