Audrey Hepburn’s long, slender neck and sharp jawline have been the envy of the world for decades. The very essence of grace are drawn across the outline of her profile, making her neckline one of the most desirable to replicate. But achieving a distinguished jawline can be nearly impossible with factors that influence the appearance, such as hormonal changes, health conditions and stress.
In these instances, getting rid of fat storage in the chin area requires more than just exercise. But the concept of having the downtime of an invasive treatment like liposuction or the excessive swelling caused by the injectable, Kybella, hold little appeal to those who want a quick way to tighten up their jawline.
CoolSculpting sparked the interest of the beauty world a few years ago through its innovative way of targeting stubborn fat pockets located on various areas of the body, but the fat-freezing treatment has been making its mark as the leading way for diminishing the dreaded double-chin.
Through cryolipolysis, a process that freezes fat cells without damaging the cell or surrounding tissue. The fat cells are then naturally excreted through the lymphatic system. The CoolMini treatment for the chin region normally is relatively painless (mild discomfort, as the device suctions the skin in as it freezes the area) with no downtime. Redness and numbness in the area is normal, though the redness will dissipate within the day. The numbness may extend for a few weeks after the treatment.
When it comes to results, most patients find they see their desired appearance after 3-4 treatments, but this varies depending on how much fat has accumulated in the area and the skin’s elasticity. This treatment is not for tightening the skin, so patients with sagging should consider alternative treatments for achieving their ideal outcome.
