FDA Expands CoolSculpting® Treatment Options for Chin
With European approval in 2000, and U.S. FDA approval in 2012, CoolSculpting® has established a solid track record as an effective, minimally invasive fat removal treatment system, with more than six million treatments performed worldwide. Already FDA cleared to treat visible fat bulges in the thigh, abdomen, flank, back and submental (chin) area, the agency in December expanded submental treatment to cover all lax tissue in conjunction with fat in the double chin.
CoolSculpting® for the double chin had already been clinically proven to reduce fat by up to 20 percent with just one treatment to the affected area. The expanded approval for lax tissue was sought because doctors using CoolSculpting® had noticed the improved appearance of lax tissue along with the reduction in fat. A 2015 supplemental 18-week clinical study of CoolSculpting® in submental fat treatment determined that 77 percent of patients showed improvement in lax tissue appearance, with 75 percent of these patients expressing the belief that their chin lines looked more toned following the treatment.
CoolSculpting® Works by Putting the Chill on Fat Cells
Also known as “Cryolipolosis,” CoolSculpting® eliminates diet- and exercise-resistant fat by targeting such localized fat deposits with freezing. Once chilled, the fat cells crystalize and die, and are then permanently removed over the next few weeks and months by the body’s own natural metabolic processes. The surrounding skin and tissue, meanwhile, are unaffected because fat cells freeze at higher temperatures.
Because CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure, there is no downtime or extensive recovery period, and limited side effects beyond light bruising and numbness around the vicinity of the treated area. Thus, CoolSculpting® is perfect for people who want to avoid the downtime, or are otherwise looking for alternatives to liposuction and other more invasive procedures.
