CoolMini – CoolSculpting
Reduce that dreaded double chin!
Our team at the McDaniel Laser & Cosmetic Center are the first practice in the Virginia Beach area to offer CoolMini! CoolSculpting which is FDA approved to treat submental fat, or double chin, with their clinically proven technology that freezes unwanted fat. The treatment allows the body to naturally eliminate the fat over a 12 week period. The process starts with the applicator placed under the patient’s chin. Once set, the application freezes the fat cells, which are then destroyed, in about an hour.
Unlike surgical Liposuction, CoolMini allows you to continue on with your day after your treatment. There are no incisions or surgical procedures involved.
Reduction in fat volume (in cc)
Did you know that a study performed by The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) showed 67% of consumers, both women and men, are bothered by submental fat also known as the “double chin”?
