Allergan, the manufacturer of CoolSculpting body contouring med spa treatment, has now received FDA clearance for CoolSculpting for the cosmetic treatment of lax tissue in the double chin. CoolSculpting is already a popular non-invasive treatment to reduce stubborn fat deposits in the submental area (below the chin), which give the appearance of a double chin. How long does Juvederm Vollure Filler Last? | Encino Medical Spa

With the new FDA clearance for treatment of lax tissue, the fat tissue reduction in the double chin can be combined with tissue tightening to achieve more comprehensive aesthetic outcomes.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides the FDA cleared CoolSculpting body contouring and other treatments to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.

Treating Submental Fat and Lax Tissue

According to David Nicholson, Chief R&D Officer at Allergan, the company is committed to advancing innovation for CoolSculpting to meet the needs of patients seeking non-invasive aesthetic treatments.

Nicholson said: “A 2017 American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) survey revealed that 73 percent of patients are bothered by excess fat under the chin. We are pleased this patient concern can successfully be addressed by CoolSculpting through a non-invasive approach, and furthermore improve the appearance of lax tissue in the treated area.”

A clinical study performed over 18 weeks to determine the effectiveness of CoolSculpting in submental fat treatment found that 77 percent of patients showed improved appearance of lax tissue and 75 percent of patients reported their chin looked more toned following treatment.

Experts say that when CoolMini applicator from CoolSculpting is used to treat the fatty deposits in the double chin area, it also leads to noticeable improvement in the appearance of lax tissue. With the recent FDA clearance, this fact has now been officially validated.

Double chin area is more difficult to treat with changes in lifestyle, diet and exercise. Therefore, the FDA clearance of CoolSculpting for the treatment of lax tissue in conjunction with submental fat assumes greater significance.

Double Chin Fat and Sagging Tissue are a Vital Concern

Cosmetic experts believe that patients are going to receive the dual treatment for this fat-freezing med spa procedure with enthusiasm. According to various reports, excessive submental fullness, (commonly known as a double chin), and sagging neck skin, rank among the top cosmetic concerns among patients.

This observation matches with the figures released by the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, or the ASDS, which reported that the number one concern (for the fourth consecutive) among patients is related to unwanted body fat. The ASDS study says that 85 percent of men and women considering cosmetic procedures reported being unhappy about the appearance of “excess fat on any part of the body.”

More than 73 percent of the patients specifically reported being upset about excess fat under the chin. Apart from submental fullness, 60 percent of the patients said they are bothered by lax facial skin. Now with the latest FDA clearance, CoolSculpting can help patients get rid of both these concerns related to the chin and neck area.

Male Brand Ambassadors for Botox

The manufacturers of Botox have recognized the consistently rising interest among men to choose med spa procedures such as Botox, which do not involve downtime and deliver swift and safe results. Deion “Primetime” Sanders, the popular TV analyst, Hall of Famer, and former pro football and baseball player has now taken over the role as the official spokesperson for the Botox brand.

If he markets for Botox as smoothly as he used to run (as smooth as Walter Payton), that will be outstanding for Botox!

Sanders says: “I’ve always taken pride in my appearance. Turning 50 prompted me to take an honest look in the mirror. When I did, I noticed lines between my brows and in the corners of my eyes – and that’s just not “Prime.” So that’s why I’m telling men that if they’re like me, and don’t like seeing frown lines and crow’s feet, they should talk to a doctor. I did, and with his help, made the choice to get treated with Botox Cosmetic.”

Men with Different Needs Seek Botox

According to cosmetic industry experts, more men are definitely coming in for Botox procedures. Numerous male patients visit in groups to seek improvement of their facial wrinkles with Botox. Some are younger men in their 20s to 30s who being noticing early signs of facial aging and want to receive Botox treatment as a preventive treatment.

Some other men may be entering a new stage of life, which could be a career change or a divorce. These men want to achieve an improvement in their appearance. Some men are concerned about looking older at the workplace or are actively interviewing for work and aim to maximize their youthful appearance during the job selection process.

Areas of Treatment for Men

Men seek Botox treatments both for prevention and to enhance their existing appearance. They will typically seek treatment of trouble zones between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), to the sides of the eyes (crow’s feet) as well as horizontal forehead worry lines. Several men also want to use Botox to help slim their face by injecting directly in the masseter muscle along the jaw line or in the chin to mitigate dimpling of the skin.

Underarm sweating is one of the medical uses of Botox, which is common among men.  A single Botox treatment per season can reduce underarm sweating by more than 90 percent. The average age of men seeking Botox for the first time is around 40. But now there is growing awareness about the benefits of Botox as a preventive treatment.

Applying Botox to soften dynamic wrinkles with movement reduces stress on the skin and helps prevent the development of static wrinkles.
