Cryolipolysis / fat freezing treatment of the chin

Everything you need to know about cryolipolysis (fat freezing) treatment of the chin

A double chin ruins the lovely contour of your neck and makes you look older. Unlike other areas of the body, unwanted fat beneath the chin is difficult to reduce by exercise alone. Here are all information you need to know about fat freezing treatments of the chin:

How does cryolipolysis/fat freezing double chin treatment work?

Cryolipolysis treatment is a non-surgical procedure during which freezing cold temperatures are applied to fat cells in the targeted area resulting in a sleeker profile. The application of a cooling paddle-like suction device triggers cell death in the fat cells but not skin cells, meaning other tissue remains unharmed.

The advantages of cryolipolysis chin treatment are that it is a non-invasive method (no anaesthesia required) with little downtime required for and after the treatment.

Preparation for cryolipolysis treatment of the chin

During your initial consultation your suitability for treatment will be assessed, and measurements such as BMI, height, weight and blood pressure will be taken. Before your personalised treatment plan begins, we advise patients not to drink any alcohol and to avoid taking medications such as aspirin.

What happens during fat freezing chin treatment?

The cryolipolysis treatment of (double) chin can be described in three steps:

Step 1: Measuring the fat layer beneath the chin by using the caliper

Step 2: Placing the cryoprotective gel pad to protect against cryogenic burns

Step 3:  Our medically certified cryolipolysis applicator will be placed beneath your chin. Most patients describe the cooling sensation as a mild discomfort – not painful. Several clients like to catch up on a TV show or read during cryolipolysis treatment.

How long does fat freezing of the chin take?

Each fat freezing session lasts for approximately 70 minutes. The best results are seen with two treatment sessions (occurring 4 weeks apart).

Which device does ICE AESTHETIC use for treating the chin

Fat freezing treatment of the chin is applied with the smaller cryolipolysis device AGATE (CE certified, Class IIa medical device). This device was manufactured in France and thoroughly tested to optimise patient comfort and safety.

Aftercare of cryolipolysis chin treatment

There is no down time after having your chin treatment session. Although you can go straight back to work after your treatment session, you will optimise the results seen if you follow the aftercare advice provided: keep physically active, drink lots of water and eat a healthy diet low in carbs. We also advise that you avoid saunas, sunbathing and alcohol after treatment.

Are there any risks or side effects of cryolipolysis/fat freezing treatment for the chin?

Some recipients may experience mild bruising, slight swelling, redness, itching or sensitivity around the chin area. Most side effects clear up within a few days of treatment and any discomfort can be eased with painkillers. A very rare side effect that can occur is panniculitis; inflammation and hardening of fatty tissue that can be resolved by surgery. However, as cryolipolysis is only administered by highly trained medical professionals, most of these side effects are minimised.

What results can I expect and how soon will I see results? Are the results permanent?

Most patients witness an improvement in their neck profile a few weeks after their second cryolipolysis treatment session. The results of cryolipolysis chin treatment are permanent, as long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained; the frozen fat cells cannot grow back. Results from cryolipolysis will vary based on the recipient’s diet, lifestyle and fatty tissue composition.
