You’ve heard how great CoolSculpting can be, but you may be wondering: “what about laxity? Can CoolSculpting improve the appearance of lax tissue?” When it comes to a double chin, the answer is “yes,” as the FDA has cleared CoolSculpting to improve the appearance of lax tissue in conjunction with treatments for submental fat (double chin).
FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lax tissue along with fat reduction for a double chin
In fact, CoolSculpting is the first and only non-surgical fat reduction technology to earn the FDA clearance to improve the appearance of lax tissue after treatment for a double chin.
Results proven in a clinical study
In an 18-week clinical study of the submental area (aka double-chin), CoolSculpting was proven to improve the appearance of lax tissue in more than ¾ patients in the clinical trial. Investigators found that 77% of patients visibly showed improved tissue laxity. Plus, 75% of patients reported their chin looked more toned after treatment.
Think of CoolSculpting as the double approach to a double chin because it offers fat reduction plus the improved appearance of lax tissue!

How does CoolSculpting work?
The CoolSculpting fat reduction treatment is essentially non-surgical controlled cooling of fat cells. The procedure destroys fat cells by way of Cryolipolysis® (aka “freezing the fat”) and reduces fat in the treated area by about 20%...without damage to other tissues or structures. The result? Once treated fat cells are gone, they are gone for good!
Is the fat under your chin bothering you?
You’re not alone. A 2016 survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery revealed that 73% of patients are bothered by excess fat under the chin. In fact, CoolSculpting consumer research has found that this is the 4th most desired treatment area.

CoolSculpting is cleared by the FDA for eight body areas, safely and effectively reducing subcutaneous fat in the flanks (“love handles”), abdomen, thighs, submental area (under the chin), back, bra area, underneath the buttocks (banana roll), and upper arms. And now it’s also cleared to improve the appearance of lax tissue in double chin treatments!
