The results are not immediate but become visible after a period of weeks.

A small applicator specifically designed for the neck area is used to treat the double chin. Depending on the amount of fat to be treated, a single cycle or overlapping treatments may be used to achieve the desired outcome.
Freezing fat with CoolSculpting is considered a no-downtime procedure. Immediately following treatment, the chin area under the CoolSculpting applicator is massaged to enhance fat removal. An acoustic wave therapy device called Cellutone may be used to enhance fat removal. Mild tenderness or numbness is possible in the area following treatment but is temporary in nature.
