Have you checked your profile lately? You notice that your chin appears to have doubled and now you’re afflicted with a fatty fold of skin that sits right underneath your chin. How dreadful! And how in the world did this happen?
There are a number of reasons why your skin has taken this unsightly turn.Natural age progression can cause the skin and muscles beneath the chin to loosen. Excessive weight gain can cause fatty tissue to accumulate underneath the chin. Heredity can be a major factor. If your relatives have double chins, chances are you’ll have one too.
Unfortunately, it’s not going to go away on it’s own. You can try Kybella or Coolsculpting. They’re two non-invasive procedures that are great alternatives to surgery.
Kybella and Coolsculpting are both highly effective at getting rid of the fat under the chin, which can be difficult to do, since the skin has become stretched and has lost its elasticity. Although they both eliminate fat, they’re distinctly different. Kybella treatments involve safely injecting deoxycholic acid into the fatty skin tissue beneath the jawline. The fat cells are dissolved, destroyed and disposed of through the body’s natural processes. For the most effective results, it could require multiple injections at least four weeks apart over a period of six months.Coolsculpting is a safe and effective technology that freezes and eliminates unwanted fat cells. It’s non-surgical and requires no downtime. Your technician gently pinches an area of fat that you want to
reduce, then with a carefully positioned applicator safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized-frozen, then
die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells, which subsequently
begin to show a more contoured chin. You would need to have a session once a month to see the
So, both of these procedures destroy fat cells and naturally excrete them. Now, which one do you choose? To help you make your choice, you may want to consider some significant differences between the two procedures. If you’re concerned about pricing, then you’ll want to choose Coolsculpting over
Kybella. Each Coolsculpting session could cost about $300 to $400. Kybella
is significantly more
expensive with a $1500 per session price tag.
As for comfort, patients tend to have a better post-treatment experience with Coolsculpting. They don’t tend to have any side-effects, just some mild bruising, swelling or soreness, which normally dissipates in about two weeks. Patients experience the same type of minor discomfort with Kybella, but they also sometimes report headaches, muscle weakness in the face,
mouth, and throat pain, pounding in the ears, irregular heartbeat, difficulty swallowing and an uneven smile.
When those double chin exercises have failed to show results, consider Coolsculpting to get rid of chin fat. It’s easier on your skin and your pocket than Kybella.
