The CoolMini treatment is an FDA-approved nonsurgical solution for patients with excess fat under the chin. The CoolMini is an add-on component to CoolSculpting, which means it uses the same non-surgical cryolipolysis technology that safely and effectively freezes excess fat, allowing it to be harmlessly processed out of the body.

The CoolMini hand piece is designed to treat smaller areas of the body, namely under the chin. Treatment is performed in the office and generally requires no downtime. Best results are achieved in 1 or 2 sessions, and take only about an hour. Most of our Chicago CoolMini patients notice a reduction in the appearance of a double chin in a few months’ time.

Double chin treatment with the CoolMini is effective for many patients with excess fat under the chin, but it is not a solution for loose skin. During your consultation, we will evaluate your needs and help you to determine if treatment with CoolMini is right for you. If you have questions or would like to schedule your consultation, please contact us today.

CoolMini FAQs

What is the CoolMini?

The CoolMini is an extension of the CoolSculpting technology, which freezes fat cells to slim and tone areas of concern. The CoolMini procedure can help to reduce submental fat by about 20% in most cases.

Am I a good candidate?

Ideal CoolMini candidates are in good health, both mentally and physically, with no major medical issues like hypertension, diabetes or heart disease. They should have realistic expectations based on their private consultation with Dr. Few for CoolMini in Chicago. Good candidates for the CoolMini suffer from unwanted bulging under the chin that does not respond to dieting or exercise.

How is treatment performed?

You will be escorted to a comfortable seat in our immaculate treatment room where your procedure will begin. Your practitioner will gently suction away your unwanted submental fat using the new, improved CoolMini hand applicator, which is designed for maximum patient comfort. The panels will remain in place for about an hour, during which time you can nap, watch movies, read or talk on the phone.

Is the CoolMini painful?

For the first few minutes of your treatment, you will feel a very cold sensation, not unlike being in contact with the snow. This will fade within around 10 minutes as the areas goes numb, after which your experience will be virtually painless.

How long is my session?

The typical CoolMini session will last around 1 hour. You can use this time to read, watch TV, rest, work, or relax. If you are undergoing additional procedures such as Ultherapy in combination, then naturally your treatment time will be slightly extended.

Where is my procedure performed?

All treatments are performed at our AAAASF accredited outpatient facility in Chicago. This medical center boasts all the same stringent safety protocols as any local hospital, only with increased discretion for the patient, as well as greater convenience, personalized attention and comfort.

How many sessions will I need?

The average number of visits to TFI for CoolMini treatment is two. This will vary, depending on the extent of the fat loss required.

What will my recovery be like?

There is no downtime with the CoolMini, and clients can expect to return to their regularly schedule activities right away. You may experience some slight redness or tenderness, but these symptoms tend to evaporate shortly after treatment.

How long do my results last?

You may start to see as soon as six weeks after CoolSculpting treatment, with the peak effect being seen at 3 months. The results will remain as consistent as your weight management and good physical health moving forward.
