You are sweating it out at the gym, drinking kale smoothies, and working towards the best version of you, happy and healthy. While exercise and good nutrition can sculpt your silhouette, there are certain stubborn bulges that are tough to get rid of, despite your best efforts. The fat below the chin, also called submental fat, is one of those areas. Luckily, there are two very effective, nonsurgical solutions: KYBELLA and CoolSculpting, available in the Des Moines area at our Ankeny, Iowa, dermatology clinic and spa.
Step 1: Consider Freezing the Fat With CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, nonsurgical procedure that works to freeze and eliminate unwanted fat cells under your chin area. During the procedure, you will be relatively comfortable and merely feel a sensation of cold or numbness. CoolSculpting is one of the safest procedures available for minimally invasive fat cell reduction. According to the National Library of Medicine, CoolSculpting is a reliable, safe alternative to procedures like liposuction.
At Revive, our team is proud to use CoolSculpting Elite, the latest and most updated technology in CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting Elite uses a new range of applicators that can target specific areas for even more precision. You can read about the advantages of using CoolSculpting Elite in this blog post.
Step 2: Look Into Dissolving Your Double Chin With KYBELLA
KYBELLA is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that can effectively melt away unwanted fat cells underneath the chin. Kybella is made of synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps our bodies break down fat during digestion. During treatment, we make multiple KYBELLA injections in a grid-like pattern under the chin to dissolve fat cells and give you a more sculpted profile. While you may experience swelling during recovery, the experienced team at Revive will get you back into your usual routine as soon as possible.
KYBELLA injectable treatments are also minimally invasive, nonsurgical, and a great alternative to liposuction or surgery with little downtime. To complement your new, slimmer neck and chin, Revive offers a variety of safe and effective facial injectable procedures to create your perfect profile.
Step 3: Consult With the Pros to Learn Which Treatment Is Right for You
Both CoolSculpting and KYBELLA procedures are stars at targeting and eliminating unwanted fat cells under the chin without the need for surgery. CoolSculpting uses intense cold to freeze the cells away, while KYBELLA uses deoxycholic acid to break down fat. Both approaches sometimes require multiple treatments, and results develop over several weeks.
CoolSculpting and KYBELLA treatments are widely popular and proven effective in safely eliminating fat cells under the chin.
