CoolSculpting New FDA Clearance: Banish Turkey Waddles

You already know CoolSculpting is the revolutionary fat-freezing procedure that lets you shape and contour your body. Spectrum Dermatology has been helping patients get rid of stubborn pockets of fat and get that “designer” body they’ve worked so hard to achieve. However, in early 2018, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved CoolSculpting for a new type of procedure.

CoolScupting For Crepey Skin

Areas of the skin that are thinnest and most exposed to the sun, like the face and hands, are the first to show signs of aging. One of the most unpleasant signs is the dreaded “turkey waddle.” When the area below your chin begins to sag and look crepey, for many patients, it doesn’t matter if they have their dream body. All they can look at is their chin.

The FDA has approved CoolSculpting for “improving the appearance of lax tissue,” specifically in the area under the chin. Lax tissue, or loose skin, is especially troublesome because no amount of exercise can address it. Of course, cosmetic surgery would do the trick, but it’s expensive and comes with downtime and risks.

The FDA approved CoolSculpting to improve lax skin after an 18-week study. The study revealed that 77 percent of patients enjoyed a “visible improvement” in skin laxity in the area, while 75 percent said their chin appeared better toned after CoolSculpting*. CoolSculpting is a double whammy effort because it can freeze away the fat that is adding to the waddle while also tightening the area.

Coolsculpting Number of Treatments

How many sessions a person will need depends on their body, their response, and the severity of their waddle. However, the most common amount is three to five sessions. CoolSculpting is also not meant for patients who have a significant amount of pounds to lose or extremely loose skin. Still, if you’re looking for an effective solution for mild to moderate fat and lax skin in the under-chin area, you may benefit from the FDA’s latest approved procedure—and the trusted history of CoolSculpting to deliver fantastic results.
