Double-Chin Fat Reduction
Most of us have some stubborn areas of fat that will not go away no matter how hard we work at it. Fortunately, there are now some very effective means of treating these areas that are safe, non-invasive and have no downtime. The treatments are used by both men and women.
Double chin is a problem that many patients present with that will not disappear with weight loss. Even patients with normal body weight may have fat under the chin. We can treat this effectively with CoolSculpting® or with Kybella®. Both methods are effective and safe.
Stubborn pockets of fat in the upper or lower abdomen, flanks (love handles), bra line, arms, inner and outer thighs, and back can be treated nicely with CoolSculpting®.
Reduce and eliminate the appearance of your double-chin. Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin, also known as submental fat, by physically destroying fat cells.
The Science behind Kybella®
Kybella® is injected into the fat beneath the chin and destroys fat cells. Once these fat cells are destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. The destroyed fat from the treatment area is processed through the body’s natural metabolism.
Once the injectable treatment sessions have been completed and the aesthetic effect is achieved, further treatment with Kybella® is not expected.
