Many of our Mechanicsburg clients already know how great CoolSculpting is at melting away undesirable fat. But this novel procedure isn’t just getting noticed for its amazing waist-whittling results. A recent development has CoolSculpting in the news again, making it the fat reducer that keeps on giving.
It’s Official! CoolSculpting Tightens Sagging Skin
CoolSculpting has become the first and only non-surgical method cleared by the FDA to diminish the loose skin underneath the chin and jawline. In an 18-week clinical study conducted in 2015, investigators found that 77 percent of patients showed an improved appearance of sagging tissue and 75 percent of patients reported that their chin looked more chiseled after the treatment. You can enjoy your CoolSculpting treatments even more knowing that it’s working to simultaneously tighten your skin while eliminating the fat!
Double Trouble for the Double Chin
The new FDA approval means a more powerful approach to decreasing the double chin. Now you can reduce the submental fat and the loose skin during the same CoolSculpting CoolMini® treatment. These are results you cannot get with other fat-depleting methods like Kybella® or liposuction, which may require a neck lift to tighten sagging jowls. While those are both proven techniques that vaporize submental fat, neither Kybella nor liposuction does anything to directly address the lax skin that is left behind.
The (Many) Wonders of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is such a versatile method and is able to treat a variety of places that unsightly fat accumulates without the need for surgery. It can be applied to visible bulges in the thighs, abdomen, back, buttocks, upper arms, and submental regions, all while keeping you from missing out on life.
CoolSculpting Beats Out the Competition
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons annual statistics report, liposuction procedures have seen a sharp decline of over 30 percent since the year 2000. In that time, non-invasive techniques like CoolSculpting have become more and more popular. In 2016, over 330,000 of these fat-reducing procedures were performed in the United States. That’s because they offer a non-surgical way to rid the body of undesirable fat with little discomfort or downtime.
