Yes, There is Something CoolSculpting Cannot Do!
- Posted on: Nov 15 2019
It’s easy to think of CoolSculpting as a nonsurgical procedure that people get right before summer. This isn’t accurate. There are several reasons to get a fat-blasting treatment any time during the year. Right now, as we look forward to the holiday season, we continue to receive a lot of requests for CoolSculpting. One reason is that people want to look good in their party attire. Another common reason is that the CoolMini can quickly dismantle double-chin fat for a more youthful, sculpted face.
When discussing CoolSculpting for a double-chin, it is really important to differentiate this problem from the “turkey wattle” of loose skin. This problem is more commonly known as jowls. Officially, jowls are described as the lower part of a person’s cheek that has become droopy or fleshy. We’ll pass on those, thanks! Who doesn’t find themselves wishing to eliminate sagging skin at the sides of the lower face?
Can CoolSculpting Help the Jawline?
The question isn’t whether or not to just accept the age-related changes in the face but what to do about them. CoolSculpting can help the area beneath the chin, but not in every way. It is important to know this because a misconception could diminish your satisfaction with the results this treatment gives you.
The CoolMini applicator for the CoolSculpting device has been developed to treat small areas of persistent fat, like the double-chin. This applicator works in the same way as the larger applicators used for the abdomen and thighs. During the treatment, the applicator chills the fatty adipose tissue beneath the skin. This chilling creates the illusion of damage, which stimulates the body to flush those cells. Everywhere in this description, we see that fat tissue responds to freezing temperatures. Nowhere in this description do we see anything about the skin.
Jowls are pockets of loose skin. They may look fatty but they’re not. Any fat that may reside around jowls can be eliminated with CoolSculpting, but this won’t make sagging skin look any better. But there’s still hope! The team at Always Beautiful in Aurora can help you address the jowl problem with minimally invasive treatment. Mild sagging at the jawline is often a result of volume loss in the mid-face. When we restore volume using dermal fillers, there is a chance that jowls may lift slightly. Another option may be laser skin resurfacing, a short treatment that can stimulate collagen production to give the skin an all-around boost.
