Original CoolSculpting is cleared by the FDA for non-surgical fat reduction in the abdomen (muffin top), flanks (love handles), inner thighs, and outer thighs. CoolMini is an exciting new addition to the family of treatment options. This hand-held device utilizes the same technology to reduce fat under the chin and tone the neck. At The Menkes Clinic, we are able to deliver an even better patient experience with the CoolAdvantage™ and CoolAdvantage Plus™ applicators, which allow us to cut treatment time by almost half!

How Does CoolSculpting Work?
The CoolMini hand-held unit targets the fat beneath the jaw that causes a double chin. It works in the same manner as CoolSculpting but focuses on the neck. With just one or two CoolMini treatments in our Mountain View CA office, patients achieve a more refined profile and more youthful neck contours. Because it is a separate device, you may have your double chin and the neck area treated with CoolMini while having other areas of the body addressed with CoolSculpting.
What To Expect During Your Fat Freezing Procedure
Treatment begins by identifying problem areas to get you into a proper position. You feel a firm but not uncomfortable tug as the device pulls tissue in. During treatment, an intense cold sensation develops. This feeling lasts only a few minutes before it diminishes. A CoolSculpting appointment in our Mountain View office lasts about an hour. Many patients pass the time listening to music, using their laptops, or dozing. Because CoolSculpting and CoolMini are non-invasive procedures, you may resume normal activities right away. Treated areas could feel numb or tingly, and may appear slightly red or bruised for several hours. Over time, the body processes destroyed fat cells, eliminating them through natural processes.
