New patented CoolMini probe for reducing double chins
CoolMini Say Goodbye to Your Double Chin
A tight and defined jawline is often associated with youth and beauty, but some individuals are born with imperfections and have a double chin no matter their age. Double chins can be extremely annoying because they cannot be hidden, unlike body fat that can be covered up by clothing. Is exercise and diet enough to get rid of a double chin? Unfortunately, it can be difficult to eliminate a double chin due to various factors such as aging-related skin sagging, fat drooping around the mouth, overdeveloped neck muscles, an increased volume of fat cells due to weight gain, and inherent, excess subcutaneous fat buildup in the chin. Fat cells in the double chin can be very stubborn, and dieting or exercise may not necessarily be effective at eliminating them. Many people have a good figure and facial features, but struggle with excess fat in the chin area. Over the years, this has been a difficult area to treat through facial aesthetic treatments. The only way to reduce a double chin in the past was through liposuction surgery, which carried surgical risks. While there have been fat-reducing injections developed in recent years, there is still a chance of swelling and pain following those procedures. The new CoolMini CoolSculpting technology makes it easy to reduce a double chin without complications.
酷塑系統為美國FDA、歐盟CE通過FAT REDUCTION 減脂技術，利用人體內不同組織對於低溫有不同的耐受度原理設計而成的，皮下脂肪是皮膚中不耐低溫的部份，因此利用脂肪不耐冷特性，使用攝氏4℃~5℃的「冷凝治療探頭」治療約35分鐘，遇冷的脂肪會自我凋亡(Aptosis)，透過身體自然代謝過程，溫和地排出體外，完全不需外力介入，治療過程並不會影響其他生理結構，結束療程後也可維持如常的生活步調。

CoolSculpting can help you address stubborn areas of fat such as beer bellies, bat wings, and inner thighs. These are areas that are resistant to changes through diet or exercise!
The CoolSculpting System is a technology for reducing fat that has gained approval from both the US FDA and EU CE. It is based on the principle that different tissues in the body exhibit varying tolerances to low temperatures, with subcutaneous fat being particularly intolerant. By utilizing the characteristic of fat intolerance to cold, the “condensation probe” is applied at 4℃~5℃ for around 35 minutes. This causes the cold-affected fat to undergo apoptosis and be naturally metabolized by the body. Importantly, the process does not impact other physiological structures, and after treatment, individuals can go about their normal daily routine.

What areas of the body can be treated with CoolSculpting?
During the treatment process, once fat cells come into contact with set low temperatures, they will naturally undergo apoptosis, resulting in the release of cytokines and other inflammatory mediators. Within a few months after treatment, the inflammatory cells gradually eliminate the fat cells that have been destroyed by low temperatures, which are then metabolized by the liver through the lymphatic system, similar to the process of breaking down fats from eating food. Since the process of lipid elimination is gradual, it does not adversely affect blood lipids or liver functions.
In essence, CoolSculpting is a safe and effective treatment. However, it is still advisable to discuss with your doctor and agree upon the fact that body sculpting is not the same as weight loss. If your BMI is too high or if you have issues of visceral fat, a muscle-building and fat-reducing plan through diet and exercise should be implemented initially to first lose weight and reduce the size of the fat cells. Then the fat-freezing treatment targeting specific areas of fat will result in better effects. If you are looking for a non-invasive, comfortable treatment with no recovery period, and if your BMI is under 30 and you can easily pinch a sizable section of fat in the target area (ideally thicker than 2.5 cm, but even those under 2.5 cm are treatable, albeit with less obvious results), then CoolSculpting is a highly suitable and effective option. If you are looking for a quick and significant reduction of localized fat, consulting a liposuction surgeon may be a viable option, but it is important to consider the associated risks of surgery, the extended recovery times, and the high costs.
Additionally, if you have certain immunity disorders (such as cryoglobulinemia or sensitivity to cold), loss of or abnormal sensations in the treatment area, systematic chronic or bleeding disorders, hernias, or wounds or scar tissue in the treatment area, you should inform your doctor and undergo a careful evaluation before undergoing this treatment.
Before undergoing the CoolSculpting treatment, the target area will be cleaned and a patented gel pad will be placed over it to safeguard the skin. Next, the device will be switched on, and the tissue will be automatically drawn to the cooling panel. During the first few minutes, you may feel a sensation of tightness and cooling. As the area becomes numb due to the low temperature, you can relax by watching TV, reading, or even napping, depending on your preferences. The duration of the procedure will vary based on the size of the target area, with each session usually taking around 35 minutes.
Generally, one area should require 35-60 minutes, depending on the size.
The next course of treatment can be performed after one month. It is usually recommended to undergo 1-3 treatments to receive a complete course.
The results will gradually become more visible after 1 to 3 months of fat metabolism.
Each person’s desired improvement area and fat thickness are different, and a professional evaluation by a doctor is needed to achieve a personalized and effective treatment. Le-Renouveau Clinic has two machines that can simultaneously treat two areas of the body, saving time and doubling efficiency.
To be frank, CoolSculpting is a method used to reduce “localized adipose tissue” and to make the body appear more slender, but it will not result in a significant weight loss. Many people falsely believe that losing a certain number of kilograms equates to having a slimmer appearance. However, it’s important to note that losing fat and gaining muscle can change your appearance, even if your weight remains constant (this is because muscle and fat of the same weight have a significant difference in terms of visual bulk). There are also cases where people gain one or two kilograms due to poor diet after CoolSculpting, but the contour of their body gained through the treatment remains and they still appear slimmer visually.
In terms of the centimeters of fat which can be lost, according to previous scientific research, there is evidence of researchers measuring the reduction in centimeters. On average, a decrease of 4.5-6.8 centimeters in waist circumference represents an up to 20-25% reduction in fat thickness.
While undergoing treatment, you may experience a cold and squeezing sensation for a brief period as the probe draws in your skin and fat by a process similar to that of a vacuum cleaner. This sensation typically subsides within 5-10 minutes. At the end of the treatment, you may experience temporary redness, coldness, and slight bruising.
After returning home from your treatment, you may experience temporary redness, swelling, bruising, itching, and decreased sensitivity. These reactions are normal and temporary, and usually disappear within a few days to a few weeks. In addition, studies have shown that CoolSculpting does not affect liver function, blood lipids, or cholesterol levels in the body, and is therefore a safe treatment.
This treatment is non-invasive, painless, and does not affect normal daily activities. Individuals can resume work immediately without any recovery period. While some may experience temporary tingling or bruising, this will subside within a few days.
However, reality is always cruel, and nothing in this world remains unchanged, including the results of body sculpting treatments. If you indulge in excessive eating and periods of inactivity, weight regain is inevitable. As the saying goes, diet and exercise are critical to maintaining good health. However, CoolSculpting can be a useful tool for achieving our body goals, and eliminating those unwanted fat cells!
