A double chin can make you look older and heavier than you really are. EsthetixMD is proud to offer two proven solutions for submental fullness. In addition to Kybella injectable treatments, you may wish to learn more about CoolSculpting chin treatment to lose that double chin.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a fat-reduction treatment that encourages lipolysis through the controlled application of freezing temperatures. This safe, FDA-cleared device is one of only a few non-surgical solutions to stubborn fat.
How does it work?
The process of cryolipolysis is very simple. Scientists have discovered that fat cells, when deeply cooled, become “damaged.” The body responds to the changes in these cells by eliminating them through lymphatic drainage.
How soon will I see results?
CoolSculpting elicits a natural elimination response in the body. Therefore, results become noticeable over several weeks. Some patients begin to see improvement within the first month after treatment, though the 2-month mark is when fat reduction is most noticeable, and the body continues to do away with treated cells for up to six months.
How does CoolSculpting differ from Kybella for submental fullness?
Kybella, from Allergan, is an injectable deoxycholic acid. Research has demonstrated that this substance is relevant to the breakdown of fat in the body. To treat submental fullness, or the double chin, clinicians perform about 30 tiny injections in the area beneath the chin. We make this comfortable with a topical anesthetic. CoolSculpting and Kybella both cause fat cells to die off and leave the body. However, the CoolSculpting process does this with temperature, not a chemical solution. Both treatments produce results over a period of time.
What is CoolSculpting treatment like?
CoolSculpting treatment is delivered via a small applicator that is applied to the area beneath the chin. Through this applicator, the fat cells beneath the surface are cooled. Due to the intensity of the cold, you may feel slight tenderness or tingling. These sensations will diminish into a numb feeling after a few minutes. Because the hand piece pulls tissue up and away, it is possible to feel a mild pinching sensation.
Don’t let a double chin be the single thing that you notice. Call EsthetixMD for more information on CoolSculpting chin treatment.
Clinical research demonstrates the safety and efficiency of CoolSculpting treatment, both for the body and the chin.
The effects of cool temperatures elicit more of an internal response than one that is visible. Other than minor redness, you will have no side effects that will require recovery. You may return to your normal activities as soon as you leave our office.
CoolSculpting removes fat cells by causing lipids to crystallize. This means that you should continue to enjoy results. In fact, one study showed that submental fullness did not increase even in patients who gained weight after CoolSculpting.
While research suggests that results from CoolSculpting chin treatment can remain consistent even when weight increases, patients are encouraged to manage weight with healthy lifestyle habits. The removal of fat cells does not mean that remaining cells will not expand if significant weight gain occurs.
CoolSculpting is designed to address unwanted fat. This device will not have an effect on skin laxity. We can discuss treatment options to tighten skin if necessary after your CoolSculpting procedure.
