How to Get Rid of a Double Chin
Ever wondered if there are methods and techniques to losing a “double chin” apart from traditional dieting and exercise? Well, at Lifestyle Solutions MedSpa we offer two popular non-surgical treatments specifically designed to help reduce excess neck fat. Our team can minimize the appearance of a “double chin” by performing CoolMini™ or KYBELLA® treatments; however, our practice prefers the CoolMini™ method over KYBELLA® due to the former’s ease and efficiency.
During your initial consultation, our team will discuss the benefits of both the CoolMini™ and KYBELLA® procedures and help you determine the best treatment for your needs and aesthetic goals.
CoolSculpting® uses a “freezing” method to target excess fat cells and gradually break them down over a two- to three-month period. The body naturally expels the destroyed fat over time, leaving the patient with a more contoured look. Traditionally, CoolSculpting® has primarily been used to reduce and trim excess fat on areas of the body below the neck. Now, with CoolMini™, we are able to address smaller areas. CoolMini™ is a technique within the CoolSculpting® treatment platform specifically designed to help patients who want to eliminate their “double chin.” This hand-held attachment allows us to target the section in the neck where you may have a buildup of unwanted fat. CoolMini™ allows us to avoid any surgical procedures, incisions, and potential scarring. Another great benefit of CoolMini™ is that the results can last for many years with proper weight management, and the treatment requires little to no time off from your regular routine.
KYBELLA® is a cosmetic injectable that provides a non-surgical solution for reducing a double chin. The treatment is FDA-approved and is used to break down fatty tissue under the chin. Utilizing deoxycholic acid, a component that is natural to the human body, KYBELLA® can work to destroy and eliminate excess fat cells in targeted areas of the neck. The treatment can provide long-lasting results with a brief treatment session and little downtime following the procedure.
While our practice offers KYBELLA® and CoolMini™, we prefer to provide patients with the latter. CoolMini™ offers convenience, accessibility, and minimal risks of negative side effects. This technique also does not require injections of any kind, and often results in less downtime when compared to KYBELLA®. During your consultation, our team will discuss your options and determine which procedure would be best for you depending on your individual needs.
