The area under the chin is probably the hardest area to exercise to get rid of an unwanted double chin. Luckily we offer two treatments for that pesky area, we offer Coolscuplting and Kybella, two very different types of treatments.
Coolscultping for the chin uses deep freezing of the fat cells and then flushing the fat cells out through the lymphatic system. With this treatment we recommend two treatments varying between 4-8 weeks apart. This treatment is non-invasive and FDA-approved for permanent reduction of those fat cells. There is no downtime with this and can be done on a lunch break! Side effects are that you will be numb varying person to person but average is about a month, you could experience bruising and minimal swelling. The results are gradual and can take up to 6 months to see full results.
Kybella is a series of injections administered by a Doctor and the only FDA-approved injection to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat under the chin by rapidly destroying fat cells and flushing them out of the lymphatic system while also preventing future fat accumulation. Kybella is going to be a little more customizable treatment and can treat smaller areas as to where Coolsculpting for the chin is more of a broad treatment that treats the area that the applicator meets, so if it is a small area and you are okay with needles Kybella might be a good choice and if it is a larger area on the chin Coolsculpting might be for you. Side effects of Kybella can be swelling, bruising, numbness, itching, tingling/burning sensations and difficulty swallowing.
It is best to always seek a consultation for these two treatments so you can determine which would be best for you.
