Helps to define the jawline, the CoolSculpt Mini targets fat cells under the chin area which are eliminated through controlled cooling.
Like many people, you may feel your chin is a problem area. As well as being subject to our genetics, our chins and jawlines often show the signs of ageing with loose, sagging skin. Regular exercise and a healthy diet isn’t always enough to make a difference to the chin area. This is where CoolSculpting for chins can be transformative.
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved fat freezing, fat loss (cryolipolysis) treatment proven to deliver lasting results. Using the CoolMiniTM applicator, we are able to target this treatment at smaller or hard-to-reach areas of your body, such as your chin, as we ll as other smaller areas such as knees, ankles or bulges of fat around your bra.
Cryolipolysis works by freezing and crystallising targeted fat cells. Having been cooled to a low temperature, the cells break up and shrivel away before being naturally removed by your body’s lymphatic system.
The treatment requires no needles, injections, incisions or risk of post-surgery complications. The result is a noticeable and long-lasting reduction in the fat bulge under your chin.
CoolSculpting for the chin is a fantastic treatment because it’s gentle, targeted and effective. You should see progressive improvements to your jawline for up to 16 weeks post-treatment.

At Aesthetics Lab, your wellbeing is our top priority. We want to make sure that CoolSculpting is a safe and viable option for you. During your initial consultation, you will have the chance to talk through any questions and concerns. We will also talk through your medical history to ensure there are no contraindications.
This is the time to tell us what you want to achieve from your treatment. In discussing problem areas together, we can create a personalised treatment plan that is tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
All CoolSculpting procedures are undertaken in a light, clean, comfortable environment. Once you are at ease on the treatment bench, the CoolSculping equipment is applied to the targeted areas upon a sterile gel pad.
Once the procedure begins, Controlled cooling is applied via suction cups. The vacuum created will secure the specified area as the temperature gradually lowers to freeze the targeted fat. This can feel quite cold at first but bearable nonetheless. You may feel some slight pulling or nipping. The area will soon numb and the procedure is painless for most.
Typically, your treatment will last for 35 to 60 minutes. Speak to your physician; it is often possible to read, use your phone, and even nap during the procedure.
With the procedure complete, your physician will massage the frozen area to encourage the natural expulsion of the dead fat cells. You may notice slight swelling or tenderness to the area, which should subside significantly within the next 24 hours. CoolSculpting is fondly described as the ideal lunch break alternative to liposuction, as you can usually resume normal activities straight away.
Over the following seven days, avoid caffeine and alcohol. You should endeavour to drink three litres of water a day in the coming weeks to encourage the elimination of dead fat cells.
