Double Chin Treatment

Freeze the fat and tighten loose skin with CoolMini and ThermiTight.


Losing weight is one of the most difficult things to accomplish when you’re busy and exhausted from pressures of life. Often, when we gain weight from sedentary desk jobs, having kids, and heightened levels of stress, getting to the gym is moved to the back burner. Even if you visit the gym regularly, there are areas of the body that never seem to lose the fat such as the chin. Areas around the neck and chin tend to store fat cells and lose firmness as we age.

There is now a new method of reducing fat volume and removing a portion of fat cells entirely from the body while tightening the loose skin. At Physicians’ Clinic of Iowa, we perform the combination of CoolSculpting (CoolMini) and ThermiTight treatments. If you’re looking to get rid of your double chin and want to avoid surgery, ask your provider at PCI Plastic Surgery about our CoolSculpting and ThermiTight treatments.

What is the CoolMini?

CoolSculpting is based on the research of two innovative Harvard scientists. The technology works by freezing the fat within fat cells; this freezing results in fat cell death. The dead fat cells are broken down by the body and eliminated naturally. There are a number of different applicators designed to reduce fat in targeted areas throughout the body. The revolutionary CoolMini applicator was specifically designed to reduce the fat under the chin. CoolMini treatments have been highly successful and well-received by those seeking an effective, non-invasive solution to eliminate stubborn chin fat.

What is ThermiTight?

ThermiTight is a nonsurgical and minimally invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to heat tissues resulting in skin tightening. The technology can be used anywhere in the body where people desire a tighter more refined contour. It is particularly effective in tightening the skin under the chin and in the neck. As an alternative to surgical removal of loose skin, ThermiTight works by promoting new collagen and elastin production, which restores elasticity and skin firmness to the treated area.

The CoolMini reduces the fat and ThermiTight tightens the skin. This combination can truly produce Neck-Lift level improvement without surgery.

Benefits of CoolMini:

  • Non-invasive
  • Can see results in only 2 treatments performed one month apart
  • Nonsurgical
  • No downtime
  • 83% patient satisfaction

Benefits of ThermiTight

  • Results rivaling those seen with surgery without the downtime and pain
  • Tightens skin in neck and chin areas
  • Minimally invasive
  • Lasting results
  • Enhances the fat reducing results seen with CoolSculpting

CoolMini and ThermiTight Complimenting Procedures

Fat reduction with the CoolMini applicator and skin tightening with the ThermiTight technology can be truly complimentary procedures. A person seeking improvement in the chin contour would have two 45-min CoolMini treatments one month apart. That is then followed by a single ThermiTight treatment which takes about an hour. After CoolMini treatments, people can return to work immediately; there may be slight “tingling” and swelling in the treated area that may last a week. After a period of about 12 weeks time, the results of the CoolMini treatment will be fully realized. After the CoolMini treatment, loose skin may remain once the fat layer is reduced. The ability of ThermiTight to tighten the neck skin after the fat reduction seen with the CoolMini applicator allows for a powerful non-surgical solution for chin contouring.

A ThermiTight begins with the instillation of local anesthetic into the chin, jowls, and neck. Through the same small opening used to deposit the anesthetic, a small radiofrequency probe is passed into the tissues. The tissues are heated to a targeted temperature. The tissue temperature is monitored both internally with the probe and externally with an infra-red camera to ensure the treated areas are heated to the targeted temperature that produces tightening but no warmer than is safe for the skin and subcutaneous tissues.

Recovery and Results

The CoolSculpting treatments require essentially no recovery time at all. Many patients return to their normal activities the same day. After a ThermiTight treatment, people are asked to wear a compressive garment in the treated area overnight and then only at night for a week. The soreness and swelling that may be seen in the traded area can be managed with over the counter anti-inflammatories or Tylenol.

Because the fat cells are eliminated with the CoolMini treatment, it will be harder to regain fat deposits in the treated area, producing long-lasting results. With continued aging possibly producing recurrent skin laxity in an area treated with ThermiTight, a touch-up procedure may be required at 1-2 years post-treatment.

Since my hysterectomy, sex has been extremely painful. I suffered from extreme dryness and discomfort. I had no sex drive and was no longer able to experience an orgasm. Until, recently, when a friend told me about Courtney Albritton and PCI's ThermiVa treatment. I have had 2 of the 3 treatments and immediately experienced positive results. I am still in awe of the results I have experienced. The procedure was painless. Until ThermiVa, I had come to the realization that my sex life would no longer be what it once was pre-hysterectomy. I highly recommend this procedure.
