Since March, video-conferencing and virtual meetings have become part of our daily lives. Whether it’s for work, school, or to safely “hang out” with friends, most of us have spent more time in front of our webcams than ever

before. At Bodify, when we reopened in May, we even began offering virtual consults, so our amazing staff has also spent their fair share of time in front of webcams virtually answering questions for people seeking CoolSculpting in the Phoenix area. 

The plus side to this new virtual reality we live in is that pants have become optional (sweats or leggings from the waist down, anyone?), but the downside is that both men and women have become increasingly aware of how unflattering those webcam angles can be when it comes to highlighting the dreaded double chin! For many, we’ve come to realize the phrase “the camera adds 10 pounds” is no joke! At Bodify, as Arizona’s number one CoolSculpting provider, we’ve definitely experienced an increase in clients looking to reduce fat in their chin areas over the past few months, so we thought we’d highlight how CoolSculpting can help make you feel and look more confident, no matter the angle. 

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a safe, non-invasive alternative to surgical options like liposuction that provides lasting results. CoolSculpting harnesses the technology of Cryolipolysis (cryo = icy cold + lipolysis = chemical decomposition of fat), a precisely controlled cooling method, to treat stubborn fat bulges. Targeted areas can include the abdomen (“muffin-top”), flank (those pesky “love handles”), thighs, upper arms, and underneath the buttocks, or under the chin. At Bodify, our experience as the top CoolSculpting provider in Arizona (and 4th in the nation) shows us that nearly everyone has stubborn fat bulges that can be resistant to diet and exercise, and we truly believe CoolSculpting is the best option out there for targeting those areas!

CoolSculpt Your Double Chin!

Our world definitely changed in March, as states put in place stay-at-home orders to try to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and for many of us, videoconferencing has become part of our daily lives. Most workplaces required their employees to work from home, and that could actually be a lasting byproduct even after the pandemic fades away as many businesses and corporations restructure their operations. For many of us, that means figuring out what to do about the “10 pounds” webcams seemingly add under our chins! 

CoolSculpting originally gained FDA-Clearance to target love-handles (or “the flank”) in 2010. Since then, CoolSculpting has earned a total of 9 FDA-Clearances, so nearly any part of the body can be treated. Yes, even the submental and submandibular areas – under the chin and under the jawline, respectively. Since 2018, when CoolSculpting became the first and only non-surgical fat reduction treatment to contour the area below the jawline and improve the appearance of lax tissue, it’s been one of the most popular areas we treat at Bodify. For many, pesky fat is stored in the chin and jaw area, and as your body is more likely to use fat storage in other areas of your body, the double-chin can remain despite your best attempts to diet and exercise!

What To Expect With CoolSculpting on Your Chin

During your CoolSculpting treatment for your double chin, your Bodify technician will apply a gel pad and hand-held applicator to your chin. The device is moved over your chin while administering suction and fat-freezing technology to the targeted area. You may experience feelings of pulling and pinching during the process, but the “freezing” will typically numb the area after a few minutes, and overall, the procedure involves minimal pain. Then, the chin will be massaged to break up any frozen deep tissue, which helps your body begin to absorb the destroyed fat cells. The process is simple, and is non-invasive, which is perfect for this area of the body. There’s typically little-to-no downtime, so you can usually resume your normal activity the same day as your treatment! 

Be aware that it does take time for the fat cells to freeze, “die,” and flush from your system. Results can be seen after a few weeks to a few months, but you can expect to see about a 20% reduction of fat in your chin area! At Bodify, we uniquely offer our Beautiful Results Promise™, which means we’ll retreat you for free if you don’t see a change after five months if you’re at your original weight. We are the ONLY provider to offer this guarantee because we stand behind the technology and our results. All of our policies are discussed openly at your original consultation.
