Tell Your Double Chin to Chill Out
When it comes to the dreaded double chin, typically no amount of diet or exercise can fix what genetics has determined. But thanks to the CoolMini applicator from CoolSculpting®, you can target fat in hard-to-reach areas, like under the chin, and literally freeze it away. This non-invasive, non-surgical contouring treatment offers localized fat reduction by cooling specific fat cells and destroying them. Because fat cells cannot regenerate, CoolMini provides a permanent solution to double chins, chubby knees, and bra fat. It’s time to give these trouble spots the cold shoulder and achieve a slimmer, more defined you, whether your DNA intended it or not.
CoolMini is one of several applicators available with the CoolSculpting® system. We have a group of Harvard scientists to thank for this groundbreaking concept in fat reduction. Based on the process of cryolipolysis, which offers targeted freezing of fat cells without causing damage to the surrounding tissue, CoolSculpting is a safe, effective, and non-surgical method of permanently eliminating fat cells. Through the surface of the skin, the CoolMini applicator sends targeted cold to the fat below. The fat cells freeze, crystalize, and are destroyed. During the course of the next few months, your body safely, naturally, and permanently eliminates the fat cells.
Each CoolSculpting® CoolMini treatment reduces fat in the treated area by 20-25%. You can safely receive multiple treatments to the same area until your desired result is achieved. The CoolMini applicator was specifically designed for small trouble spots such as fat under the chin, on and around the knees, and along the bra line. Because CoolMini destroys fat cells, results are permanent as long as you maintain a steady weight.
Am I a candidate for CoolMini?
- Do you have a double chin?
- Do you have chubby knees or bra fat?
- Do you have stubborn areas of fat that just don’t respond to diet and exercise?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, then you are likely a good candidate for CoolMini treatments!
What results can I expect from CoolMini?
A single CoolMini treatment will permanently reduce fat cells in the treated area by 20-25%. Most patients need 2 treatments to achieve desired results and some individuals will opt for a 3rd treatment for even more fat reduction. The results from CoolMini treatments develop gradually over time and it typically takes up to 12 weeks for final results to be seen. Results look completely natural with no scars or signs of treatment of any kind. Many CoolMini patients report that their friends and family think they’ve lost weight after having the treatment. When used under the chin, the CoolMini treatment typically produces a more defined jawline along with the reduction in chin fat.
What happens during a CoolMini treatment?
- Your CoolMini treatment visit will take about an hour.
- During the treatment, you will be lying in a reclined position on a comfortable luxury spa table. We make every effort during your visit to ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed.
- To begin the treatment, the CoolMini applicator is attached to the targeted areas using strong suction and you will first feel your skin being pulled into the applicator followed by intense coldness. The coldness subsides within a few minutes as your body adjusts and your skin becomes numb.
- For the next 45 minutes, you simply lie back and relax as your unwanted fat gets chilled. Most patients spend the time resting, reading a book, checking email or just meditating.
- You can make the most of your time by treating multiple areas during your visit. Radiance Medspa is one of only a handful of facilities in the Tampa Bay area that offers Dual CoolSculpting, which benefits from the use of two CoolSculpting systems at the same time to treat multiple areas more quickly. Why not treat your love handles and your double chin at the same time?
- At the end of the treatment, the applicator is removed from the treatment area and one of our trained medical providers will massage the area as a final step in the process.
- After your visit, you don’t need to do anything but wait! From the moment the CoolMini treatment is complete, your body is on its way to naturally eliminating those frozen fat cells for good. You will notice gradual improvement to the area over the next 8-12 weeks.
- Most individuals need 2 treatments to achieve desired results. The 2nd treatment is typically performed 30 days after the first treatment for best results.
What is the downtime after a CoolMini treatment?
There is little to no downtime after a CoolMini treatment. Most patients experience slight redness immediately after the treatment which typically subsides within an hour. In addition, the area will feel numb immediately following the treatment and it is possible that some mild swelling of the area may develop in the hours following the treatment and may persist for up to 5 days. Tender and/or hard spots in the treated are also common and may persist for 1-2 weeks following treatment. There are no special post treatment instructions or restrictions following a CoolMini treatment and you may return to normal activities right away.
How long do the results from CoolMini last?
Fat reduction resulting from a CoolMini treatment is permanent. Once fat cells are frozen, they are eliminated by your body and they do not come back. In order to maintain the results from your treatment, it is important that you do not gain weight afterwards. Although the fat cells targeted by the CoolMini treatment are gone for good, the treatment targets only 20-25% of the cells in the area while the rest of your fat cells remain. The fat cells that remain can grow larger with weight gain and, as a result, it is possible for the treated area to increase in size as a result. This is true of any permanent fat reduction procedure whether it is Liposuction, Laser Liposuction, CoolSculpting, Sculpsure, or any other treatment that eliminates a portion of your fat cells. The bottom line is that results from a CoolMini treatment are permanent as long as you maintain a steady weight (or lose weight) after your treatment.
How much does CoolMini cost?
Most individuals need 2 CoolMini treatments to achieve desired results and some individuals will even opt to get a 3rd treatment for more reduction. It is important to have a consultation before booking a CoolMini treatment to ensure that you are a candidate, that your expectations of results are clear, and so that pricing may be determined for your individual needs. Pricing typically ranges from $1800-2400 for a Coolmini treatment, and varies depending on the number of total treatments needed. Consultations are always complimentary.
How does CoolMini work?
Developed by Harvard scientists, the FDA-approved CoolSculpting procedure offers a safe, non-invasive method of eliminating fat permanently. The CoolSculpting system delivers controlled cooling to target specific fat cells below the skin’s surface. The process, called cryolipolysis, takes less than an hour and involves the freezing of fat cells, resulting in cell damage which triggers your body to naturally eliminate the cells over time. Only your fat cells are targeted during a CoolSculpting procedure while surrounding tissues are not affected. During the weeks that follow the CoolSculpting treatment, the damaged fat cells are permanently eliminated by the body producing gradual, permanent fat reduction over time. The CoolMini applicator is a specially designed applicator that works with the CoolSculpting system to treat small pockets of fat and produces excellent results on the chin, knees, bra-fat, and other small areas.
How many CoolMini treatments will I need?
Each CoolMini treatment will reduce fat in the treated area by 20-25%. For most individuals, a minimum of 2 treatments is needed for optimal results and some individuals will need more. Treatments are performed 30 days apart. Radiance Medspa offers complimentary consultations to determine whether you are a candidate and to provide guidance as to how many treatments will be necessary to achieve your desired outcome.
How often can I get CoolMini treatments?
CoolMini treatments are typically performed 30 days apart. This allows for most of the fat that was damaged during the first treatment to be eliminated from the area before a subsequent treatment is performed. Most individuals need 2 treatments in order to achieve desired results and some individuals opt to get a 3rd treatment for additional fat reduction.
Is the CoolMini Procedure Safe?
CoolSculpting was FDA cleared in 2010 and has been used safely in more than 2.5 million treatments around the globe since that date. The process by which CoolMini freezes fat cells ensures that no other tissues or structures in the treatment area are damaged in the process. Only the fat cells are damaged, then they are safely eliminated over time by means of the body’s natural waste removal processes. Other than the possibility of some local and temporary tenderness, sensitivity, swelling, and/or numbness, which occur in a small percentage of patients, there are no other expected long- or short-term side effects from the procedure.
