How CoolSculpting Works to Remove That Pesky Double Chin

Do you look in the mirror and see a double or triple chin? We can help improve this with Coolsculpting! 

What causes double chins?

Double chins happen when a layer of fat around your neck begins to sag, causing a wrinkle that makes it look like you have two chins. Gaining weight often is the culprit, but weight gain isn't the only reason you might develop a double chin. Other factors could include: 

What is CoolSculpting?

Here's some reality. The number of fat cells in your body is set during childhood and adolescence, and everybody has a different number of fat cells deposited in different places. 

In adulthood, you don't gain or lose fat cells. But you can make the fat cells you have expand by eating too much and failing to exercise.

CoolSculpting, known scientifically as cryolipolysis, is a fat loss, not a weight loss, treatment. It freezes and kills your fat cells, which your body eliminates over 2-6 months. Typically, CoolSculpting can remove 20% to 25% of fat in areas treated. You may see results in as little as three weeks.

CoolSculpting has been FDA-cleared to treat visible fat bulges in these areas: 

What to expect

During your CoolSculpting treatment at Tahoe Women's Care, you will recline in a comfortable chair while our trained Coolsculpting technicians  attach a gel pad and applicator to your double chin. The applicator is strapped onto your chin, so it doesn’t move during the freeze time which is 45 minutes.

After treatment, our technicians  will massage your chin for 2 to 3 minutes. Then, you’re free to continue your day. There’s no downtime, although you will feel numbness in the treatment area. 

Some possible CoolSculpting side effects include: 

If CoolSculpting sounds like a good fix for your double chin, call Tahoe Women’s Care at 775-318-3909, or book a free consultation online.
