Reduce Your Double Chin With CoolSculpting®

35 year old blonde woman with clean fresh face and hands with long hair When you look in the morning mirror and see more fat and bulging than you want under your chin, this is known as the double chin that just won’t go away. You can improve your profile from any angle and be free from those annoying fat deposits under your chin. This submental fat under your skin can be reduced by undergoing CoolSculpting® at Fante Eye & Face Centre.

CoolSculpting® for Under the Chin

This is a nonsurgical procedure designed to eliminate subcutaneous fat cells through an advanced freezing process. Fatty deposits are directly targeted to re-sculpt the chin in a flattering way without the need for downtime required with invasive surgery.

CoolSculpting® fat freezing is FDA approved as a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that is known in the cosmetic surgery field as cryolipolysis. Using the latest CoolSculpting® technology, this procedure pinpoints stubborn fat cells on the sides and front of your chin by applying controlled cooling energy to the fat cells targeted to be destroyed.

Sagging skin under the chin is targeted by the CoolSculpting® gel pad applicator, causing the fat cells to crystalize and ultimately shrink and die.

Ideal CoolSculpting® Candidates

It is very challenging to address double chin fat through contemporary weight loss and exercise regimens.

The following factors will determine if you’re an ideal CoolSculpting® candidate using the following factors:

  • You want a non-invasive procedure to reduce your double chin
  • You are close to your BMI and weight goals
  • You have a double chin that is diet/exercise resistant
  • You lead a healthy lifestyle with a good diet and exercise regimen

Be mindful that CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss plan or substitute for regular exercise. However, it is a very convenient and effective cosmetic procedure to lose your unwanted double chin fat and have a smoothly-defined facial profile from every angle.

Is Unwanted Fat Problematic? You’ve Got Options!

If you’re like the vast majority of adults, you’ve got an area of your body that you’d like to improve upon. For many people, it’s unwanted fat that’s the problem. We tend to learn pretty quickly that stubborn fat is referred to as such for a reason. Diet and exercise do not always get us the results we want. When they don’t we may feel uncertain about where to turn. If you’re in this situation, we’ve got options. Here, we compare two common fat-reducing treatments, ALLURA laser sculpting and CoolSculpting.

ALLURA is a laser system with the ability to quickly liquefy fat cells while also penetrating fibrous tissue to promote spontaneous skin contraction. It is considered a laser-assisted liposuction procedure, but one that requires only a small incision and local anesthetic to perform. Clinical studies on the ALLURA™ device have indicated that patients achieve significant cosmetic results within 2 weeks after treatment, and the improvements continue for several weeks. 

CoolSculpting is a well-known non invasive fat-reducing treatment. This process works by targeting a specific area with freezing temperatures. During the procedure, the target area is held by suction in between two panels. These are cooled to a precise temperature and remain in place for 30 to 60 minutes. After treatment, fat cells in the area form crystals that destroy their outer membrane. These cells are eliminated through the lymphatic system. Studies indicate that patients may begin to notice subtle contouring improvements in 2 weeks. It takes approximately 12 weeks for the entire fat-flushing process to complete. Most patients need a series of 3 to 4 treatments to achieve optimal fat reduction. 

Both ALLURA and CoolSculpting are conservative procedures that can be performed on various areas of the body. These include:

  • Neck and jawline
  • Backs of the arms
  • Stomach
  • Thighs
  • Back/bra area

We’re Here to Help You Decide!

Sometimes, the more options that you have for cosmetic treatments, the more difficult it feels to choose. That’s why its beneficial to consult with an experienced provider. We help our patients determine their best treatment option by listening to their desired improvements and providing information about various appropriate therapies. When it comes to fat reduction, CoolSculpting and ALLURA both offer proven results. Where they differ is in invasiveness, timing of results, and also action on the skin. Because ALLURA is a laser treatment, it has a mild to moderate tightening effect on the skin, where CoolSculpting does not.

CoolSculpting: Before, During, and After

We may be entering the cooler part of the year but that does not mean we aren’t still getting numerous requests for CoolSculpting treatments! A survey recently conducted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons even revealed that the COVID-19 pandemic has not made a significant impact on people’s interest in body contouring procedures. After injectables like Botox and dermal fillers, body contouring surgeries are still leading the pack. We could think of several reasons for this but, really, that isn’t what matters. What matters is knowing what your choices are when you want to feel better about your body. We are proud to offer a proven, non-invasive option in our Denver office. Here, we discuss what to expect before, during, and after CoolSculpting treatment.

Before CoolSculpting

It may not seem as though much needs to be done before CoolSculpting. We’d say this is accurate. The most important thing to do before treatment is to consult with an experienced provider. In our office, we take time to sit with each patient and talk about what they want to accomplish. The last thing we want to do is overpromise and underdeliver. While we know what CoolSculpting can do, we know it may not be right for everyone. This procedure will not achieve weight loss. It will not achieve immediate results. It leads to the gradual elimination of fat cells and the progressive improvement of a person’s shape.

The CoolSculpting Procedure

CoolSculpting is a relatively quick procedure. The average appointment lasts only about an hour, with treatment often completed within 45 minutes. It is possible to target unwanted fat cells in this short amount of time because over 10 years of research has gone into developing the technology behind CoolSculpting. To begin treatment, the provider places a gel sheet over the skin to protect it. The applicator is applied over the sheet. This small device uses suction to secure the selected area of tissue for the duration of the procedure. The device is set to the precise temperature and tissue is cooled.

At first, patients will feel the cold temperature. Sensations then may range from tingling to stinging to aching to numbness. This transition happens in just a few minutes, after which the patient sits or lies back comfortably.

After CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting works by causing crystals to form inside if fat cells. This damages the membrane and leads to the cells being flushed from the body. Even weight loss doesn’t accomplish this. Studies indicate that the area targeted by freezing temperatures may be reduced by up to 25% in a single session. After CoolSculpting, patients may resume normal activities immediately. Side effects of treatment include numbness, tingling, redness, swelling, cramping, aching, and tenderness. Not every patient experiences every side effect. When these do occur, they can last up to a few weeks. The results of fat reduction may begin to appear as soon as two weeks after treatment.

You deserve to feel your best all the time. For more information or to schedule your CoolSculpting consultation at our Denver office, call (303) 839-1616.

Visit Us to Chill that Double-Chin

Some cosmetic concerns are notoriously hard to correct. A double-chin is one of them. While we have known for a long time that some people may be predisposed to fat accumulation in certain parts of the body, including the chin area, it has only been recently that solutions for this problem were developed. Years ago, plastic surgeons began performing liposuction of the neck to eliminate what is now known as submental fullness. In the past few years, however, we’ve been introduced to some incredible non-surgical options. Kybella (injections) is one. CoolSculpting is another.

CoolSculpting! That’s Body Contouring, Isn’t It?

CoolSculpting was developed several years ago as an innovative form of body contouring. It works based on cryolipolysis. This is the process of destroying fat cells by freezing them. Based on studies that a target temperature could damage fat cells without affecting the skin, CoolSculpting became known as one of the most convenient and effective fat-reducing treatments of our time. People from all around the world have accomplished beautiful results using CoolSculpting to eliminate stubborn abdominal fat and thigh fat. But submental fullness? That’s not a job for CoolSculpting, is it? Initially, it was not. Now, thanks to a new applicator, CoolSculpting is becoming one of the most popular double-chin treatments around.

CoolSculpting for the Double Chin

Our goal is to ensure our patients get the best results in the most convenient manner. We understand, though, that CoolSculpting may not be right for everyone. Our trained staff meets with each person interested in addressing their double chin to get to know their concerns and their expected outcome. All of the details about CoolSculpting are discussed during that consultation, including what can be achieved and how many treatments it may take to fully eradicate excess fat. Often, when a patient decides that CoolSculpting is right for them, we can conduct the procedure immediately.

The CoolSculpting procedure takes only about 30 minutes in many cases. Once the treatment is over, patients can go right back to their normal activities. The skin may look red for up to several hours. The chin area may feel numb or tingly. These side effects usually go away within a few days to a week. As soon as the process is complete, the body goes to work gradually breaking down the targeted fat cells and flushing them for good.

You don’t have to continue being frustrated about your double chin. Call our Denver office at (303) 839-1616 to schedule your CoolSculpting consultation.

Let’s Chill on the Double Chin Problem

The younger generation uses the word “chill” to describe a state of relaxation. When worrying unnecessarily, one may say they need to “chill out.” In our arena, we chill in an entirely different way! We help patients chill out about cosmetic concerns related to unwanted fat by literally chilling fat cells into oblivion. Here, we discuss how chilling fat cells with the CoolSculpting device is an excellent way to eliminate a double chin for good.

For the past several years, CoolSculpting has gained popularity as one of the easiest and most effective methods of nonsurgical body contouring to ever be developed. People all around the world have gotten this treatment to whittle their waistlines, banish back fat, and thin the thighs. As the treatment has been refined over time, new applicators have been developed. This has led to the use of CoolSculpting as an effective double chin treatment.

How CoolSculpting Demolishes the Double Chin

To begin a CoolSculpting treatment program, we must first make sure that this modality aligns with what a patient wants to achieve. There are other ways to treat a double chin, including neck liposuction and Kybella, so we talk with patients about their goals and expectations and marry those up with the ideal treatment. One of the reasons why CoolSculpting is a preferred treatment is that it does not require any anesthesia and it involves no injections. There is also no downtime needed and very few lingering visible side effects, like swelling or redness.

When CoolSculpting is used to treat a double chin, the process begins with the application of a gel pad. This sits between the skin and the cooling applicator. The small applicator that cools fat cells holds the small area of unwanted fat in place with gentle suction. This can feel like tugging but is not painful. As tissue is cooled, patients may feel tingling and slight aching, then numbness. The procedure is done in less than an hour. Afterward, patients can immediately resume normal activities.

There is no bad time to get rid of a double chin that is degrading your complete confidence. To explore your double chin treatments, including CoolSculpting, call our Denver office at (303) 839-1616. Our friendly staff is happy to schedule a consultation for you.

What Is It Like to Get CoolSculpting?

We can probably all agree that losing weight can feel like an uphill battle. Sometimes, the closer we get to our goal weight, the harder it is to shed those last stubborn pounds that seem to localize in certain areas. You may have some of those areas right now; the abdomen that just won’t flatten, or the backs of the arms that won’t slim down, or the thighs that continue to rub together uncomfortably. We get it. It’s difficult. That’s why CoolSculpting has become a prime service in our Denver office. Here, we discuss what CoolSculpting is and what you can expect if you get this treatment.

CoolSculpting is a body-contouring device. It works by triggering the natural elimination of excess fat cells by exposing them to very cold temperatures. During a treatment session, a small area of fat is suctioned in between two cooling panels. The device is then set to approximately 40 degrees Fahrenheit. This temperature affects fat cells without affecting the skin, so it is very safe. It takes some time for fat cells to reach this target temperature, up to an hour, but discomfort caused by cold is mild and only temporary. By reaching a target temperature, the device ensures that crystals will form inside the fat cells, causing them to become damaged and inciting their metabolism. Fat reduction occurs naturally over 12 weeks. Results can be maintained indefinitely with a healthy lifestyle.

What Does CoolSculpting Feel Like?

This is the big question. Many people have heard that CoolSculpting is painful. It isn’t. Device technology has improved since CoolSculpting first gained FDA clearance, reducing the severity of side effects. Even then, patients rested comfortably during sessions. Now, it’s even better! During and/or after CoolSculpting, patients can expect:

  • Tingling or aching during sessions as the tissue is taken down to its target temperature. Within a few minutes, these sensations are replaced with numbness.
  • Redness, swelling, and bruising may be noticed after treatment.
  • As fat cells crystallize and transform, patients may feel tingling, cramping, or aching. This can last approximately one week.
  • Skin sensitivity that lasts up to two weeks.

CoolSculpting can pave the way to your best body. To schedule your consultation and treatment at our Denver office, call (303) 839-1616.

Do You Need a Hand with Those Fitness Goals?

Summer is on its way! We are also a few months into our work on the new year’s resolutions we made. If you, like so many people, set goals to get your body in shape before summer, you may be starting to sweat the small stuff. Instead of worrying about every little thing you put on your plate, why not continue the healthy habits you started after January 1st and call in the reinforcements?

We aren’t suggesting that you walk away from your intended goal to feel your best when you hit that wall of frustration, which you may be staring at right now. There is tangible (and visible) value in chilling out on fitness goals, especially when you do it our way.

If you can still “pinch an inch” on your stomach, your thighs, your back/bra area, the backs of your arms, or even under your chin, the best way to jump-start your transformation may be to arrange some CoolSculpting sessions in our Denver office. One CoolSculpting session stimulates the process of cryolipolysis in the targeted area that can result in a 25% reduction in fat cells. That inch won’t be pinchable anymore after the body flushes crystallized fat cells through the lymph.

What Does This Have to Do with Your Goals?

CoolSculpting is the leading nonsurgical treatment for fat-reduction because it consistently delivers on results. That’s more than we can say for the average diet and workout plan. By undergoing CoolSculpting, you’re maximizing your efforts to look your best by summer without having to spend hours revamping your meal plans and workout routine. This treatment isn’t intended to replace the healthy habits you’ve implemented; it’s meant to complement them. If your efforts haven’t paid off the way you anticipated they would, now is a great time to boost your results. Boosting your results bolsters your motivation to keep going, and motivation is the magic to achieving your goals.

CoolSculpting can keep you in the right mindset by helping you see results more quickly. To learn more or schedule your treatment, call (303) 839-1616.

Start the New Year off Loving the Skin You’re In

This is a time of year that prompts many of us to take a closer look at various aspects of our lives. We look at how well we’re taking care of ourselves, how we might manage stress better in the coming months, and how we can address the cosmetic issues that have plagued us for far too long. If you’re like a lot of folks, you may be considering finally doing something about the lingering fat that just won’t go away. Maybe you’ve considered CoolSculpting, the body contouring treatment you’ve heard of time and time again, but you’re procrastinating. We might know why. Many people who are interested in this treatment tell us that they hesitated because they weren’t sure what to expect. We’re going to answer the big questions here.

What Happens Before CoolSculpting® Treatment

CoolSculpting treatment doesn’t just happen. It is first necessary to make sure that this modality can do what a patient expects it to do. This may take some of the pressure off of your decision to get treatment. Know that all you’re committing to at first is learning if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting. Most people are. This treatment can be conducted on the tummy, back, bra fat, thighs, even under the chin or on the backs of the arms, anywhere there is subcutaneous fat to “pinch.” After discussing what you wish to achieve and assessing your problem areas, your provider can accurately estimate a treatment plan that is right for you.

What To Expect During CoolSculpting® Treatment

If you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting, it’s possible that your treatment can be conducted right after your consultation. That is, if you are ready to move forward. The CoolSculpting process takes from about 40 minutes to an hour for one treatment area. Before beginning, the provider places a gel pad over the skin. This prevents sticking. The applicator is then applied over the pad.

When the applicator is applied, it suctions tissue between two cooling panels. Patients have reported feeling a pinching or tugging sensation that feels more odd than uncomfortable. With the cooling panels set to their target temperature, patients then report feeling sensations of stinging, tingling, intense cold, aching, or cramping. Again, none of these sensations is described as necessarily painful, just odd. Also, they only last for a few minutes before the tissue goes numb. For the remaining time of treatment, patients relax with a book or other activity.

After CoolSculpting® Treatment

Here is another area where patients anticipate pain. If you’ve looked into CoolSculpting, you may have heard that the provider will massage the treatment area immediately after removing the applicator. This practice has been shown to significantly increase the efficacy of fat-reduction, so we don’t want to skip it. Fortunately, providers are very careful when handling “frozen” fatty tissue. Patients describe their post-treatment massage as tolerably uncomfortable and very worth it to get the results that are possible.

Start your CoolSculpting treatments now to be in your best shape well before summer. Call (303) 839-1616 to schedule your consultation in our Denver office.

Did you Check Your List Twice?

This is the time of year during which we gleefully make our holiday gift-giving list. No doubt you’ve already done so, with the holidays now upon us. If you remember, you probably felt a surge of delight just making the list. This is because there is literal psychology to giving, actual changes in the brain that happen when we give a gift of any size to those we love. Studies show that even giving to charity can light up the areas of the brain that are within our “pleasure center.” As merry as we feel giving to others, the holidays can put us in a place of potential burnout, too. It is important to remember that you belong on your holiday gift-giving list to truly make this the hap-happiest season of all.

A Gift of Any Size will Do

Remembering yourself throughout this holiday season doesn’t have to be a chore. It should be something to look forward to and it can be something that you do often. A little TLC may come in the form of a hot bath at the end of a long week, or a morning in bed with a good book. A true gift, though, is also one that you’ll remember. We have several quick and affordable options that you may love.

For a special gift all for you, visit our ReDerm MD Medical Spa in Denver for:

  • CoolSculpting body contouring treatment on the tummy, thighs, chin, or other areas.
  • SkinTyte skin-firming treatment on the face, neck, abdomen, arms, or other areas.
  • Forever Young BBL broadband light treatment for signs of sun damage and aging.
  • Dermal fillers for plump, beautiful lips or diminished lines and wrinkles.
  • Botox (bye-bye, frown lines!).
  • No downtime microneedling for a healthy holiday glow.

The holidays are depicted as a merry time of year, which they typically are. At the same time, the holiday season can bring stress along for the ride, with the extra spending and extra socializing we expect of ourselves. During the holidays, we may long for someone who is no longer with us or generally feel a bit melancholy. Enacting the psychology of giving, we can offset the stressors of the season with some good old TLC.

We’d love to see you in our Denver medical spa. To schedule a visit, call (303) 839-1616.

Tips for Making the Most of Your CoolSculpting Treatment

CoolSculpting Denver, CO

CoolSculpting treatment has elevated the way we address the issue of unwanted fat. This body contouring treatment is not only nonsurgical but also completely noninvasive. No injections, no anesthesia, no downtime. This is what patients appreciate about freezing stubborn fat cells. As much as there is to appreciate about CoolSculpting, many patients have questions about how long their results may last. With a few strategies, what is achieved with CoolSculpting can be maintained for years.

Tip #1 – Ensure that CoolSculpting is Right for You.

We love what CoolSculpting can do and feel that this technique may be suitable for a wide range of patients. However, it isn’t for everyone. CoolSculpting is ideal for people whose weight is healthy for their body frame and is stable. Ideal candidates are those who are interested in correcting isolated areas of fatty tissue, such as a “pooch” along the lower abdomen or lingering fat on the inner or outer thighs. It is important to recognize that CoolSculpting will not reduce weight but that it can noticeably improve the appearance of the body. Still, for larger areas or more substantial fat reduction, liposuction may be a better option.

Tip #2 – Support Immediate Changes.

The results of CoolSculpting develop gradually as the body eliminates the fat cells that have been affected by cold temperature. This process occurs in the lymphatic system, which can work more efficiently with a little help. After CoolSculpting, we may gently massage the treatment area to begin the fat-elimination process. During the days that follow, patients may continue this massage technique every day or two to continually stimulate fat-reduction. Some people also wear a light compression garment after CoolSculpting. this can encourage healing and the transformation of shape. Finally, water consumption is vital to lymphatic function so we recommend drinking at least 8 glasses a day.

Tip #3 – Develop Habits that Support Long-Term Results.

Many people who undergo CoolSculpting are already committed to healthy eating and exercise habits. Maintaining these habits is key to ensuring that fat cells in the treatment area do not expand in the future. In addition to diet and exercise, some people also choose to undergo additional CoolSculpting treatments to enhance the results achieved from their initial treatment.

We enjoy seeing what CoolSculpting can do for patients of our Denver office. If you’d like to see what this body-contouring treatment can do for you, contact us for a personal consultation.
