CoolSculpting® has a variety of applicators that can be used to reduce excess fat all over the body, and one of the most popular is made for CoolSculpting® the chin. Mt. Pleasant's Germain Dermatology uses the specially designed CoolMini™ applicator to treat submental fullness, more commonly referred to as a double chin. Germain Dermatology was the first practice in South Carolina to have CoolMini™ and one of 78 sites in the Unites States to receive the applicator before it was launched for wide use. While it is primarily used to reduce submental fullness, it was optimized to capture and effectively treat smaller bulges in a variety of place, including the knees.
The CoolMini™ delivers clinically proven results: an average of 20 percent fat reduction with each treatment. A 2014 study conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery showed that approximately 67 percent of people were concerned with chin and neck fat. A more recent study conducted in the United States revealed that 22.4 million people are interested in seeking non-invasive fat reduction solutions.
