How the New FDA-approved CoolMini Effectively Treats Submental Fat

CoolSculptingA non-invasive procedure to effectively address fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise, CoolSculpting has gained considerable popularity in recent years. The areas that can be treated include the abdomen, flank (love handles), inner thighs and outer thighs. The predictable results, non-invasive technology, comfort and lack of downtime are the main factors that have gone to make it a popular body contouring option.

In September 2015, FDA expanded the clearance for CoolSculpting by Zeltique Aesthetics with the approval of the company’s new CoolMini applicator to treat smaller pockets of fat, including the submental area. Fat tends to accumulate in the chin and neck areas and is a major cosmetic concern among both men and women.

Lifestyle, age and genetic factors are responsible for the condition that makes a person look older and lacking in facial definition. In fact, in a 2014 survey by The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 68% of the respondents said that excess fat under the chin and neck was their top cosmetic concern. CoolMini provides the answer.

The FDA’s clearance of this non-surgical applicator is based on a clinical trial data pertaining to 60 male and female patients in the age range of 22 to 65 years. They received one to two treatments, six weeks apart, under the chin. Zeltique reported that:

  • Those in the study group achieved an average 20% fat reduction.
  • No significant adverse events were observed

The device works on patent cooling technology (cryolipolysis). The CoolMini applicator is placed on the particular area where fat reduction is required. The process involves gentle cooling of the targeted fat cells which destroys them. A butter-shaped cube of frozen fat cells collect underneath the chin and the surgeon massages them away. The fat cells are eliminated in a natural, controlled way without damaging surrounding tissue. CoolMini removes the fatty tissue under the chin permanently and patients can expect long-lasting results.

Cosmetic Surgery Times reported that the principal investigator for the CoolMini submental trial and speaker for Zeltiq said that the outcomes observed using the CoolMini applicator to treat the submental area have been very positive, with high levels of patient satisfaction with… fat reduction and the lack of discomfort and downtime afterward.”

Most people now prefer non-invasive procedures to address cosmetic issues as they offer results within short time and involve very little risk of any kind of serious complication when compared to surgery. In any case, consulting an experienced plastic surgeon is crucial as any treatment – surgical, minimally invasive or noninvasive – is only as good as the doctor performing it.

Difference between Fat Reduction And Weight Loss – From A CoolSculpting Perspective

CoolSculptingIf you are considering a body contouring procedure to get rid of stubborn fat and achieve a more pleasing silhouette, there are some important things that you need to know about fat reduction.

Fat reduction is not the same as weight loss. Fat cells absorb the storage form of fat called triglycerides and expand when you gain weight. When you lose weight, your fat cells decrease in size, but your fat cell-count remains the same. If you constantly eat more than what your body needs to maintain its energy level – what’s called overeating – your fat cells will continue to expand.

The right diet and exercise regimen may help you lose weight, meaning that it can make your fat cells decrease in size. However, there is a limit to what these weight loss methods can achieve when it comes to fat reduction in some areas of the body such as the abdomen, waist and flanks. Excess fat in these areas often refuses to budge even with a rigorous diet and exercise regimen and would stand in the way of your body contouring goals.

Now what if there was a way to reduce fat cell count in these areas? The good news is that there is one – it’s called CoolSculpting. This procedure is making news as it effectively reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas. Fat cells that are no longer present cannot get larger.

The CoolSculpting procedure is different from weight loss surgery and other non-surgical weight loss procedures in three ways:

  • Fat freezing actually reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas
  • It does not change the fat cell distribution in untreated areas
  • Even with weight gain after the treatment, the fat is distributed more evenly all over the body

This FDA-cleared non-invasive fat reduction treatment makes use of special cooling technology to get rid of stubborn fat. A special applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the problem areas to freeze the targeted fat cells, which causes them to die. The destroyed cells are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. By toning key areas,

CoolSculpting makes you look slimmer and shapelier and your clothes fit better too. Outcomes are long-lasting as once the fat cells are destroyed, they are gone for good. With the positive results that it offers, this novel treatment motivates people to take better care of themselves.
