When it comes to results, small pockets of fat can be some of the hardest areas of all. Even if you’ve hit your goal weight, it’s likely you’re still bothered by fat in areas like the chin, knees, or armpits. These areas can be nearly impossible to tone with diet and exercise alone, so we offer effective options to reduce fat with the latest in non-surgical body contouring. With the CoolMini™, you can enjoy the finishing touches on your new figure.
What is the CoolMini?
The CoolMini is a specialized handheld applicator that uses CoolSculpting’s signature cryolipolysis technique. Cryolipolysis uses controlled cooling to crystalize fat cells so that the body can permanently remove them as waste over time. The CoolMini is molded to fit small, fatty areas like underneath the chin for effective treatment. Additionally, many patients opt for treatment in areas like above the knees or around the armpits (bra fat).
During treatment, the CoolMini handpiece will be applied to your treatment area. You may experience intense cold at first, but the area often becomes numb within a few minutes. The handpiece is specially shaped to fit your treatment areas for complete and effective treatment, which can last as little as thirty minutes. To treat multiple areas at once, we can use the DualSculpting treatment which uses two applicators during the same session.
Who is a Good Candidate for the CoolMini?
In order to get the best out of your CoolMini treatment, you should be at or near your ideal weight. Areas that respond well to the CoolMini system are small and have inches of pinchable fat. The CoolMini can produce more definition and fat reduction in these areas, but should not be considered a weight loss method. It’s important to have healthy habits established before opting for treatment so that you can maintain your results in the long term. Most patients require one or two treatments for best results, and our CoolSculpting experts will create the ideal treatment plan for you during a consultation.
Results & Recovery
CoolMini patients often begin seeing results in as little as 1 to 2 treatment sessions. There’s no downtime required, so you can return to your regular schedule immediately— although you may experience some redness, numbness, and sensitivity in your treated area for a day or so. You’ll see your results refine and emerge over the course of the following weeks and months as your body continues to flush the crystalized cells and lose fat in the treated areas. The CoolMini produces long-term results since the treated fat cells are removed from the body so they can no longer swell with weight gain.
