Double Chin Fat Reduction Treatments: Which one is right for you?

Unless you’re a supermodel or pro athlete, you probably have unwanted fat somewhere on your body. For most of these areas, you can get rid of the excess fat through diet and exercise. But there’s one place that you can’t control the fat that settles there: your chin.

Having a double chin is frustrating because it’s often considered unattractive and can prevent you from being self-confident in your appearance. And for a long time, there was nothing you could do about a double chin.

Lucky for you there are great treatments available that we offer at our medspa that lets you target and remove the fat from your chin and neck area. Now the only difficult thing about reducing your double chin is choosing which procedure is right for you.

Two of the most popular options are CoolSculpting and Kybella.

Which one should you choose?

Choosing A Chin Fat Reduction Treatment:

Coolsculpting

CoolSculpting is a wildly popular non-surgical fat reduction treatment that freezes away fat cells. It is FDA approved for use on the double chin and other areas of the body such as the abdomen, thighs, back, upper arms and chin.

How Does Coolsculpting Work?

CoolSculpting is a simple procedure to kill and remove fat cells from your chin area. There are many applicators that can be used with Coolsculpting. The applicator that is specifically made to contour the double chin is called the Cooslculpting mini.

During a Coolsculpting double chin treatment, the applicator is applied under the chin and is held in place with straps for the 45 minute treatment. When the treatment starts, you will feel suction and the treatment area getting colder with controlled cooling until the fat cells are irreversibly damaged. The cells begin to die and are flushed out of the body through the Lymphatic system over the next 60-90 days. After the procedure is finished, a two-minute massage follows to encourage fat cell dispersal. The procedure is known to be comfortable for most people and only mildly painful to some; many people find it very tolerable.

Who Should Get Coolsculpting Done?

Does CoolSculpting work for your lifestyle? This treatment is great if you have a lot of chin fat to debulk and target at once. It is a quick procedure—most sessions last no more than 45 minutes. And many people like the fact that there is only minimal swelling, bruising and recovery time after each procedure. You won’t need to cover up your neck with a scarf. When your treatment is done, you immediately can go back to work or school. It is important to note that to achieve your desired results, you may need to undergo more than one treatment, which usually costs $1200 a session.

Kybella

Kybella is an injection that, like CoolSculpting, dissolves chin fat. It is most commonly used to target lower chin fat but can also be used for the underarms and targeted areas of the back and buttocks. Fat cells die and exit the body through the Lymphatic system—and will not return.

How Does Kybella Work?

Before the procedure begins, your doctor will apply a numbing cream and locate the injection sites under your chin. The entire procedure usually takes less than 20 minutes. Patients report a stinging feeling during the injections, despite the numbing cream. Each session requires at least 2 vials of Kybella and average cost for each treatment is about $1200.

Who Should Get Kybella Done?

Kybella is a great treatment for those with mild to medium amount of chin fat. Unlike CoolSculpting, Kybella does have some downtime. You may experience swelling and bruising at the injection site that lasts for up to two weeks. For the first few days after the treatment, you can alternate icing and warm compresses to ease the swelling. Like CoolSculpting, you would probably need multiple Kybella sessions before you see your desired results.

Combination Therapy: Coolsculpting & Kybella

For many a combination of both treatments can yield the best results. You could debulk with the Coolsculpting mini and then contour your neckline for further fat reduction with Kybella.

CoolSculpting Unveils the CoolMini™ – A New Treatment to Eliminate the Double Chin

Previously, if you wanted to get rid of the extra fat under your chin, you would need to consider liposuction or surgery.

But, those days are over!

This past September, CoolSculpting® announced that their CoolMini™ applicator was approved for use by the FDA.

As of today, we at Healthy Solutions by Dr. Luciano are pleased to announce that we are one of a few offices in the Philadelphia, Bucks County, and Montgomery County areas that have the CoolMini applicator in our office and we are ready to treat our patients with this exciting non-invasive treatment.

If you are one of the millions of Americans that have become self-conscious about the area under your chin, this treatment is right for you.

In addition to the double chin, the CoolMini can be used for small pockets of fat above the knees.

CoolSculpting is the #1 non-invasive fat reduction procedure that is proven to be safe and effective with millions of procedures performed worldwide.

What is CoolSculpting and how does it work?

CoolSculpting is based on the research done by two Harvard Scientists who observed that some children got dimples due to eating popsicles.

The idea that cold can selectively affect and eliminate fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue was the insight behind the CoolSculpting procedure.

The CoolSculpting procedure freezes fat cells that are then crystallized (frozen) and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body without needles, anesthesia, surgery, scars or downtime.

Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. Millions of CoolSculpting treatments have been performed to date on the thighs, abdomen, love handles, and bra fat with the other CoolSculpting applicators and it is the #1 non-invasive fat reduction treatment worldwide.

What are the benefits of the CoolMini treatment?

Aside from transforming your appearance with a slimmer neckline, the treatment is short (only one hour), there is no surgery, no downtime, and you will see optimum results in as little as two to three months.

You won’t have to take days off of work, miss your daily activities or be away from your family during the holidays.

How does the CoolSculpting Mini treatment compare to Kybella?

Kybella treatments are injections that are FDA approved for the treatment of fat under the chin. The treatment requires about 10-20 needle injections under the chin over 2-5 treatment sessions.

With our CoolSculpting mini treatment, there are no needles and fewer treatments are needed.

What can I expect after the CoolSculpting CoolMini treatment?

After treatment, you will experience some swelling or redness near the treatment area.

And, over the next two to three months, you will see a 20-25% gradual reduction in the volume of fat under the chin.
