The dreaded double chin. Unfortunately, it just doesn’t respond to diet and exercise in the same way that most other problem areas do. That can make it very difficult to deal with the appearance of unwanted submental fullness. Making matters worse is that the double chin isn’t necessarily associated with weight gain and loss either. In fact, it seems to be hereditary, meaning that if your parents have it, then it’s likely that you will too. However, factors like the aging process, gravity, sun damage, and other environmental pollutants can further contribute to the appearance of sagging jowls or a double chin.
No Surgery Required
Fortunately, gone are the days where there are only two solutions to the double chin: either deal with it or go in for surgery. With amazing advancements in technology, you now have several non-surgical options when it comes to relieving the double chin. So forget about the anesthesia, incisions, and scarring that go along with a neck lift and liposuction, and read on for our two favorite chin-defining approaches.
It might sound too good to be true, but decreasing your double chin can be as easy as getting several shots. With minimally invasive Kybella, you can say goodbye to unwanted submental fullness for good with simple injections. During your treatment, you’ll receive a number of strategically placed shots of the specially formulated solution directly into the troubling fat that’s causing your double chin.
But if you’re in search of a completely non-invasive way to contour your jawline, CoolSculpting may be just what you’re looking for. Recently approved by the FDA for use in the chin area, this safe and effective treatment uses innovative cooling technology to eradicate unwanted fat cells. And even better, we offer DualSculpting, which means that you can diminish the double chin and hit the love handles or muffin top at the same time, saving you in the long run. This fat-freezer can also be used on all of the common trouble spots where stubborn fat accumulates, including the back, bra roll, underneath the buttocks, the inner and outer thighs, as well as the upper arms.
When Results Will Show Up
Whether you choose to chisel your chin and jawline with Kybella or CoolSculpting, it will take a little time before you start to notice your final results. That’s because both methods rely on the body’s own natural cleansing process to purge the treated cells from the body. And for the best outcomes, a series of treatments is typically recommended, regardless of which non-surgical approach is appropriate for you. With both Kybella and CoolSculpting, most patients see the greatest benefit with at least two treatments, but as many as six may be required to achieve your personal goals.
No Downtime Necessary
And if all of that wasn’t good enough, Kybella and CoolSculpting have very little downtime. Most of our chin-contouring patients are able to return to work or their regular routine right away or within a couple of days of treatment at most. That’s a far cry from the after effects of a more intensive surgical procedure—and with comparable results!
