As we age, our skin naturally begins to grow lax and sag. Ultherapy is a non-invasive, FDA-approved procedure performed to lift and tighten skin on the brow, chin, neck, and décolletage. Using advanced ultrasound technology, this procedure targets structural layers deep below the skin’s surface, lifting and tightening the skin naturally, without surgery or downtime.

Enlarged masseter muscles can produce a bulky and masculine jawline – one that seems almost etched in stone – and detract from the softer, more feminine qualities many women desire. Masseter muscle enlargement may be a result of bruxism (tooth grinding), an often unconscious consequence of stress and anxiety. Pronounced jaw muscles may also be the result of genetics, unavoidable regardless of your habits.
Smoker's lines, lip wrinkles, shrinking lips, old-looking neck? Where do you start?
Although there are technological devices that help soften lower facial aging, often it's simple and quick to take advantage of injectables.
A defined jawline can be an attractive sign of fitness, youth, and vitality. As you age, it can be harder to attain such a profile through diet and exercise alone. Some people struggle with wrinkling skin and drooping jowls which can be addressed with skin tightening, injectables or fat destruction.

In a word: Yes! CoolMini – the cleverly named CoolSculpting device miniaturized for treating double chins – works splendidly. Just like the larger CoolSculpting device, it works by freezing excess fat cells, which are then disposed of by your body over time. The CoolMini is simply a smaller device designed for smaller areas of the body.
Dr. Fitzgerald demonstrates a treatment on her patient Emily. This is Emily’s second treatment session. Emily did not have a large amount of submental fat so her treatment course is fairly short.
Post-treatment you'll feel a burning or stinging sensation that may last a few hours. Expect some swelling which may take several days to go down.
Finally you have a completely noninvasive option for getting rid of that double chin without surgery!
Fat freezing for your double chin
CoolSculpting introduces the CoolMini – FDA approved to reduce the fat in your double chin. Simple fat freezing like the usual CoolSculpting, but with a small area handpiece that tucks perfectly beneath your chin. Fat doesn’t have a chance.
Heard of Botox? I thought as much! So why would I bring it up now to my educated patients and readers? Because the anti-aging world often tells us to focus on newer, better, cutting edge, state-of-the-art, yet we practitioners who see results all day every day know that just because something isn’t new doesn’t mean it’s not the gold standard.
