CoolSculpting CoolMini Debuts at Select Practices for Double Chin


The newly FDA-cleared CoolMini for the reduction of submental fat is now available at Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique

Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique in Houston is excited to announce an addition to the CoolSculpting family of fat elimination methods. The CoolMini was recently given expanded clearance by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of submental fat, also known as the double chin.

The sagging tissue of the jawline that often accompanies the aging process can be tough to address with just diet and exercise. Although lifestyle and genetics can also play a large part in its formation, unlike other areas on the body, submental fat is impossible to hide underneath clothing.

Zeltiq's CoolSculpting currently is the most popular method for noninvasive fat elimination. CoolSculpting is based on Cryolipolysis, which causes fat cells to be exposed to extreme cold and die off. These cells can then be naturally metabolized and eliminated from the body, allowing tissues to return to their formerly taut appearance.

CoolSculpting is a safe and effective method to eliminate fat along the abdomen, lower back, flanks (love handles), arms, and thighs. A recent study by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) reported that more 22.4 million Americans were interested in noninvasive fat reduction.

The smaller size, unique shape, and innovative curvature of the CoolMini make it vastly different from other CoolSculpting applicators. The CoolMini has been specifically designed to treat small pockets of fatty tissue, such as that under the chin. The pain-free treatment takes 60 minutes, requires no downtime, and can produce initial results in as few as three weeks. Full benefits are seen in two to three months.

Director of International Marketing at ZELTIQ said, "The CoolMini is the newest addition to our growing CoolSculpting portfolio, which uses patented fat freezing technology backed by scientific evidence. Our existing applicators for larger areas, such as the abdomen and thigh, have seen great results and there was a demand from both physicians and patients to treat smaller, more specific areas."

Mark Foley, the President and Chief Executive Officer of ZELTIQ explains this significance of this latest FDA-clearance, "I believe our new CoolMini applicator will provide a truly compelling alternative to other popular devices and methods currently used to treat and contour the neck, like liposuction." In reference to the 93% satisfaction rating of CoolSculpting, he then continues, "I have been particularly pleased with the very positive feedback we are receiving (on the CoolMini) from both physicians and patients."

Dr. Paul Vitenas, Houston's top cosmetic surgeon and his business partners Philippe Bibi and Alexander Vitenas, founded Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique in 2014. With 20 plus years of surgical and noninvasive experience, the team sought to create a spa like space, offering cutting-edge and dependable nonsurgical procedures. Mirror Mirror offers the full family of CoolSculpting tools, as well as other treatments such as dermal fillers, Botox Cosmetic, and the Titan Skin tightening system.
