Kybella vs. Coolsculpting
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 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 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.
