As far as noninvasive body-contouring treatments go, CoolSculpting has one of the highest ratings around. The developers of this fat-freezing device knew what they were doing. We regularly perform this procedure on patients to sculpt their thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and other areas. You may be wondering, then, why we would warn you not to be fooled by CoolSculpting. We say this because many people think this device can do something it cannot. Your expectations about treatment are crucial to your satisfaction, so we want to steer you out of the CoolSculpting weeds before you get stuck.
CoolSculpting has Limitations? Say it Ain’t So!
We love CoolSculpting as much as the next person. We know what it can do and we get to see this in real life over and over again. CoolSculpting intends to get rid of fatty tissue. One of the common areas people struggle with excess fat is the chin. Who doesn’t love the idea of getting rid of a double chin without surgery? With the development of the CoolMini, a special CoolSculpting applicator, this has become possible. Using precisely chilled temperature, it is possible to pull a fast one on the stubborn submental fat. What you want to be aware of, though, is that freezing cold will not affect anything besides fat.
Where there is accumulated fat under the chin, there is also often an excess of skin. We fondly call the sagging skin at the jawline jowls. Like a double chin, jowls do nothing for the face. Because jowls are a completely different problem than fat, one should not turn to CoolSculpting to get rid of this problem.
It’s Not That Bad
Dr. Bucay has assembled a comprehensive selection of modalities in our San Antonio offices. Where CoolSculpting leaves off, another protocol can pick up. If your most desired gift of the coming holiday season is to love the lower part of your face again, we can help. CoolSculpting can get rid of unwanted fat, and treatment like Ultherapy can tighten up loose skin. Sometimes, jowls can be slightly corrected by recontouring the mid-face with dermal fillers. Any way you look at it, you can win the battle against jowls by turning to a professional.
We’d love to help you feel your best this season and far beyond. To schedule a visit, contact our La Casita or Sonterra office.
