Those small yet troublesome areas of excess fat on our bodies, such as bra fat and fat on inner arms, knees and ankles (‘cankles’) have been, until now, notoriously difficult areas to treat. And no matter how much you diet, it can seem almost impossible to lose a double chin.
Fortunately, there is an innovative and non-invasive treatment with long term results 1: the CoolMini™ from CoolSculpting® by Zeltiq. The CoolMini is a nifty fat-freezing treatment applicator specially designed to treat smaller areas of fat bulges, such as unwanted double chins. To read more about this condition, take a look at our dedicated blog where we talk about CoolSculpting and fat freezing for the chin.
We were the first clinic in the UK to offer this new treatment and have seen huge successes already. To find out more about CoolSculpting Mini or other treatments that we offer, please contact our clinics in London and Buckinghamshire.

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved fat freezing, fat loss (cryolipolysis) treatment. The CoolMini was introduced by Coolsculpting as a special applicator designed to treat small or hard-to-reach fat bulges, such as double chins, without patients having to resort to double chin surgery.
This revolutionary fat freezing technology targets, cools and reduces unwanted fat cells in the selected area. These cells crystallise, then shrivel away. Your body metabolises them and gets rid of them naturally, with a noticeable and long lasting reduction in the unwanted fat bulge.1
The CoolMini is a small applicator that can significantly reduce body fat1 – without requiring surgery – from smaller areas. For example, fat under the chin, bra fat (front inner arm fat), auxiliary puff (back fat around your bra), fat on knees and fat around the ankles commonly known as ‘cankles’.
You may start to see results as as early as four to six weeks after your treatment with progressive improvement up to 14 to 16 weeks, but your body will continue to flush out fat cells for up to three to six months following treatment1.
During your consultation, we can discuss a tailored treatment plan that will meet your specific needs.
Once the treated fat cells are crystallised (frozen), they shrivel and are naturally reduced from the body. As long as you stay healthy, the long-term results should remain stable1. Your medical practitioner will give you all the advice you need.
At the initial stage of treatment, you will experience a firm pulling sensation on the area being treated. The cooling process should then numb the area after a few minutes1. We will explain everything in detail and make you feel at ease and relaxed on the day of your treatment, knowing you’re in safe, expert and medically qualified hands.
The Cosmetic Skin Clinic has been voted the Number 1 clinic in the UK & Western Europe for CoolSculpting for the last five years having performed over 14,000 procedures to date. With more machines than any other practice, and a dedicated team of CoolSculpting body contouring practitioners, we pride ourselves on an outstanding service with superlative results for reducing unwanted fat.
All of our dedicated expert practitioners have graduated from CoolSculpting University and Dr Tracy Mountford is the only key opinion leader and medical advisor for CoolSculpting by Zeltiq in the UK.
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared cryolipolysis fat freezing treatment. It safely delivers controlled cooling to gently and effectively target and reduce unwanted fat cells beneath the skin’s surface1. With over 7 million CoolSculpting treatment cycles worldwide, the treatment is proven to be safe and effective for non-surgical fat reduction.
Because CoolSculpting with the CoolMini is carried out without the need for surgery, there is no downtime and most patients can return to their normal activities right away 1. A little redness may occur but this usually disappears very quickly.
As with all CoolSculpting procedures, treatment takes about an hour per area unless you are being dual sculpted, which means you can have two areas treated at the same time. (Please note that double chins cannot be DualSculpted.) We are one of the few clinics to offer DualSculpting™.
Some people find fat freezing treatment uncomfortable during the first 5-15 minutes when the CoolMini applicator freezes the skin and fat, but very few patients have reported experiencing sensation during treatment and all have said it subsided quite soon.
CoolSculpting with the CoolMini is ideal for both men and women. We provide a discreet service for all our patients.
CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared non-surgical fat reduction treatment. Its benefits have been widely documented and verified in more than 50 medical reports and journals. It has been clinically proven to reduce fat cells by 20-25% across a diverse range of treatment areas. With the CoolMini applicator, patients can expect to see a visible reduction in fat stores as early as four to six weeks after treatment.
