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.

How Can I Make My Jawline Look Slimmer?
Scores of women are rushing to dermatologists, complaining of temporomandibular joint dysfunction (or TMJ), which is the latest excuse for getting neuromodulators like Botox injected into the jaw…But for a perfectly defined jawline that defies gravity and enhances any profile, Botox is just the beginning.
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.
