Technology has come a long way and there are now multiple options when it comes to aesthetic procedures. Two of the more popular and effective procedures for getting rid of unwanted pockets of fat under the chin are CoolSculpting and Kybella.
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive way to get rid of that double chin appearance without using liposuction or any other surgical procedures. Another non-invasive treatment option is Kybella, which is an ideal solution to treat moderate to severe fullness underneath the chin.
The FDA has approved both treatments for smaller areas of the body, and they are most commonly used under the chin. Kybella is an injection that contains a naturally occurring molecule that works by dissolving fat. Your body then flushes out that fat, improving the appearance of your face under your chin. Kybella has proven to be effective for those who have good skin and clearly feature a double chin.
CoolSculpting utilizes CoolMini to treat that same under the chin area. The procedure freezes fat cells away by creating ice crystals inside fat cells. In just one session a third of the fat under your chin can be frozen. This is a good option for people who don’t like needles and don’t want any downtime. Women who have looser and more mature skin are ideal candidates.
Kybella typically has three treatment sessions four to six weeks apart, while most patients need one or two CoolSculpting treatments. The amount of treatments you need will be determined by a professional on a case by case basis. Both CoolSculpting and Kybella are great options but a consultation with your doctor can help you determine the best choice for you.
