If you’re discouraged by the appearance of your double chin, you’re not alone. Whether it’s genetics or fat that is resistant to diet & exercise, chin fat can be stubborn cosmetic issue. Luckily, there are new non-invasive option to reduce submental fat known as Kybella and CoolMini. Which may leave you to wonder: which is best for me?
Kybella: Kybella is an injectable, formulated with deoxycholic acid, that is inserted into the skin to reduce the appearance of a double chin. It is the first and only injectable to be approved by the FDA for treating submental fullness, and does it all without invasive surgery or extensive recovery time. A typical procedure lasts about 20 minutes and most patients return to their daily activities immediately following the procedure. Most patients notice optimal results with 2 to 6 treatment sessions.
CoolMini: CoolMini utilizes the revolutionary CoolSculpting technology to treat stubborn fat on a smaller scale. The CoolMini uses a smaller applicator to target fat underneath the chin, essentially freezing and destroying the fat. The fat cells are gradually flushed out of the body through normal metabolic processes, with final results noticeable after just one or two visits. The CoolMini procedure is completely non-invasive and requires no downtime or recovery period. Most patients will read or even take a nap during a treatment session, and then return to work following the procedure.
The Verdict: Both Kybella and CoolMini are safe, FDA-approved procedures to dramatically reduce the appearance of chin fat. Because of their non-invasive nature, each procedure allows patients to see noticeable results without significant downtime.
The CoolMini is ideal for patients with loose or mature skin, and for those who would like to avoid injections entirely. One of the biggest differences between the two is that Kybella is performed through a series of small injections. Kybella may be ideal for patients who want to treat smaller areas of fat deposits.
