Is your double chin ruining your profile? Fat below the chin known medically as submental fat, is often difficult to melt away with diet and exercise, especially if it’s due to genetics. Although chin liposuction is a good treatment option, many people are now turning to non-surgical solutions for their double chin.
How to Remove My Double Chin Non-Surgically
There are several non-surgical treatments for addressing a double chin, including Kybella and CoolMini. Both treatments can dramatically reduce your double chin and contour the area, but they work differently.
Kybella is an FDA approved injectable treatment that can dissolve your double chin without pain, or downtime. Kybella consists of deoxycholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body, and is used to metabolize dietary fat.
How Kybella works
When Kybella is injected into the area below the chin, it breaks down the membrane of the fat cells, so they are eventually destroyed. It typically takes 4-6 Kybella treatments to achieve the desired results.
CoolMini is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses cold temperatures to get rid of stubborn fat below the chin. CoolMini is a part of the CoolSculpting body contouring system that is based on the science of cryolipolysis. It targets specific fat cells, without damaging surrounding tissues.
How CoolMini works
The CoolMini applicator is applied to the area and the cold temperatures target the unwanted fat cells beneath the chin, causing them to crystallize and die. The treated cells are subsequently processed and flushed from the body in the months that follow.
