Can CoolSculpting® Improve the Appearance of Lax Tissue?
You’ve heard how great CoolSculpting can be, but you may be wondering: “what about laxity? Can CoolSculpting improve the appearance of lax tissue?” When it comes to a double chin, the answer is “yes,” as the FDA has cleared CoolSculpting to improve the appearance of lax tissue in conjunction with treatments for submental fat (double chin).
The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The results are proven, noticeable, and lasting—so you'll look great from every angle. It may take as little as one office visit to achieve your goals. With different applicators to choose from, Dr. Harvey-Dent can design a treatment plan that can give you your desired re
sults. For some people, a customized treatment plan may include more than one CoolSculpting treatment.
All CoolSculpting procedures are performed by Dr. Harvey-Dent. Patients will initially have a one on one personalized consultation with Dr. Harvey-Dent to develop a customized treatment to transformation plan that addresses the patients specific problem areas. Unique Dermatology and Wellness Center offers the latest technology, with the new and improved applicators which offers patients shorter treatment time, 45% more comfort and better outcomes because more tissue can be treated at one time.
How it Works
The CoolSculpting procedure safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystalized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
The procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in treated areas by about 20% to 25%.
These fat cells are naturally processed and eliminated, so they won’t migrate to another area of your body.
In the U.S., the CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental area, thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, and underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll).
You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after 2 months. Your body will still continue to flush out fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment. The Before & After gallery shows what results look like several weeks after CoolSculpting treatment.
