Double Chin Fat Reduction Treatments: Which one is right for you?

Unless you’re a supermodel or pro athlete, you probably have unwanted fat somewhere on your body. For most of these areas, you can get rid of the excess fat through diet and exercise. But there’s one place that you can’t control the fat that settles there: your chin.

Having a double chin is frustrating because it’s often considered unattractive and can prevent you from being self-confident in your appearance. And for a long time, there was nothing you could do about a double chin.

Lucky for you there are great treatments available that we offer at our medspa that lets you target and remove the fat from your chin and neck area. Now the only difficult thing about reducing your double chin is choosing which procedure is right for you.

Two of the most popular options are CoolSculpting and Kybella.

Which one should you choose?

Coolsculpting vs. Kybella

Choosing A Chin Fat Reduction Treatment:

Coolsculpting

CoolSculpting is a wildly popular non-surgical fat reduction treatment that freezes away fat cells. It is FDA approved for use on the double chin and other areas of the body such as the abdomen, thighs, back, upper arms and chin.

How Does Coolsculpting Work?

CoolSculpting is a simple procedure to kill and remove fat cells from your chin area. There are many applicators that can be used with Coolsculpting. The applicator that is specifically made to contour the double chin is called the Cooslculpting mini.

During a Coolsculpting double chin treatment, the applicator is applied under the chin and is held in place with straps for the 45 minute treatment. When the treatment starts, you will feel suction and the treatment area getting colder with controlled cooling until the fat cells are irreversibly damaged. The cells begin to die and are flushed out of the body through the Lymphatic system over the next 60-90 days. After the procedure is finished, a two-minute massage follows to encourage fat cell dispersal. The procedure is known to be comfortable for most people and only mildly painful to some; many people find it very tolerable.

Who Should Get Coolsculpting Done?

Does CoolSculpting work for your lifestyle? This treatment is great if you have a lot of chin fat to debulk and target at once. It is a quick procedure—most sessions last no more than 45 minutes. And many people like the fact that there is only minimal swelling, bruising and recovery time after each procedure. You won’t need to cover up your neck with a scarf. When your treatment is done, you immediately can go back to work or school. It is important to note that to achieve your desired results, you may need to undergo more than one treatment, which usually costs $1200 a session.

Kybella

Kybella is an injection that, like CoolSculpting, dissolves chin fat. It is most commonly used to target lower chin fat but can also be used for the underarms and targeted areas of the back and buttocks. Fat cells die and exit the body through the Lymphatic system—and will not return.

How Does Kybella Work?

Before the procedure begins, your doctor will apply a numbing cream and locate the injection sites under your chin. The entire procedure usually takes less than 20 minutes. Patients report a stinging feeling during the injections, despite the numbing cream. Each session requires at least 2 vials of Kybella and average cost for each treatment is about $1200.

Who Should Get Kybella Done?

Kybella is a great treatment for those with mild to medium amount of chin fat. Unlike CoolSculpting, Kybella does have some downtime. You may experience swelling and bruising at the injection site that lasts for up to two weeks. For the first few days after the treatment, you can alternate icing and warm compresses to ease the swelling. Like CoolSculpting, you would probably need multiple Kybella sessions before you see your desired results.

Combination Therapy: Coolsculpting & Kybella

For many a combination of both treatments can yield the best results. You could debulk with the Coolsculpting mini and then contour your neckline for further fat reduction with Kybella.

Healthy Solutions Med Spa has everything you need from facials and weight loss programs, to non-invasive body sculpting treatments to help you look like the best version of yourself.

There was a time when a manicure/pedicure and a facial was considered “party prep.” Today, we’ve got HydraFacials, Botox, teeth whitening, IV vitamin therapy, and non-surgical treatments to help you prepare for that significant milestone.

So what are the latest and greatest Med Spa treatments and services getting done in preparation for the big day? Women and men are turning to CoolSculpting, medical weight loss programs, and Kybella to help them look and feel their best – all offered at Healthy Solutions Med Spa.

CoolSculpting:

Think Spanx! But a more permanent body shaping medical treatment. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment that permanently freezes away stubborn fat from areas of the body that don’t respond to diet and exercise such as the abdomen, legs, arms, back, chin, and chest.

This revolutionary technology targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges without needles, cutting, stitching, anesthesia, or recovery time. It is safe, FDA-cleared and effective.

If you’re considering showing up in a super sleek gown but don’t want to spend the day sucking in your gut, CoolSculpting can help you achieve a more slender looking abdomen. It can also create more flattering and toned looking arms as well as reduce that annoying bulge from bra fat – so you can feel confident and enjoy one of the most special days of your life.

Kybella:

Say cheese! If while looking to find your best angle you suddenly discover a double chin, don’t panic. Kybella treatments can help. Kybella is a fat dissolving injectable used on adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin.

The FDA-approved super shot contains a naturally occurring molecule that melts away fat. The acid will destroy your double chin-causing fat cells, and help you attain a tighter and thinner profile. A series of 2 to 3 treatments are recommended. Best of all, the results are permanent. So grab your selfie stick and schedule a free consultation today.

HCG Diet:

Remember those 10 to 15 pounds you meant to lose but didn’t? If there was ever an occasion to finally do it, your child’s wedding is it!

HCG is a hormone known as human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). In a very small dose, it has been studied to produce dramatic weight loss by targeting your fat for fuel on a low-calorie diet. Patients average 1 pound a day weight loss and a 30 to 42 day course is common.

While on HCG, patients report decreased appetite and increased energy. The HCG diet is a great strategy to jump-start you on the way to your ultimate goals. It is available in injections, oral drops, and a cream. A free consultation is required before beginning treatment. If you are looking for a medical weight loss doctor in the Bucks County area that offers the HCG diet, call (267) 388-4692

Whether you opt for CoolSculpting, Kybella or HCG Diet – or decide to do them all, you will arrive at your child’s wedding looking and feeling like your absolute best self.

2 Treatments to Improve Your Selfie

If you’re like most people, you spend at least a few minutes every day scrolling through Instagram, Facebook or another one of your favorite social media platforms, looking at a variety of posts—by your coworkers, friends, family members, favorite celebrities, brands and public figures.

In doing so, you may notice a common thread: everybody is always taking selfies.

We all know firsthand that it only takes a few instances of seeing others’ GREAT looking selfies to go back, look at our own, then feel a bit down when we tell ourselves these could look better.

When that happens, we recommend doing two things. First, don’t be so harsh on yourself.

We’re our own worst critics, but rest assured, you look beautiful!

Secondly, we recommend coming out to our Bucks County, PA Medspa for the Kybella or Coolsculpting double chin fat reduction treatments that will have you loving your selfies (and overall image).

KYBELLA

KYBELLA is an FDA-approved minimally-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses a small injection to reduce and eliminate double-chin.

When you come in for a KYBELLA treatment, we’ll give you a quick injection that consists of a naturally occurring molecule produced by the body to help break down fat.

The acid will destroy your double chin-causing fat cells, and help you attain a tighter and thinner profile.

A series of two to three treatments are recommended. Best of all, the results are permanent.

CoolMini by CoolSculpting

FDA-approved CoolMini is a recent addition to the popular CoolSculpting line of non-invasive fat reduction treatments.

If you’re familiar with CoolSculpting, you know that it is the world’s #1 non-invasive fat reduction procedure with millions of CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide.

Coolsculpting treatments effectively eliminate fat around some of the hardest-to-combat areas like thighs, abdomen and love handles without having surgery, needles, anesthesia, or downtime.

Just like CoolSculpting, CoolMini uses its trademark method of literally freezing unwanted fat away.

Where CoolSculpting is perfect for problem areas below your neckline, CoolMini is designed to battle chin and neck fat—perfect for improving your selfies!

CoolSculpting Unveils the CoolMini™ – A New Treatment to Eliminate the Double Chin

Previously, if you wanted to get rid of the extra fat under your chin, you would need to consider liposuction or surgery. But, those days are over! This past September, CoolSculpting® announced that their CoolMini™ applicator was approved for use by the FDA. As of today, we at Healthy Solutions by Dr. Luciano are pleased to announce that we are one of a few offices in the Philadelphia, Bucks County, and Montgomery County areas that have the CoolMini applicator in our office and we are ready to treat our patients with this exciting non-invasive treatment.

If you are one of the millions of Americans that have become self-conscious about the area under your chin, this treatment is right for you. In addition to the double chin, the CoolMini can be used for small pockets of fat above the knees.

CoolSculpting is the #1 non-invasive fat reduction procedure that is proven to be safe and effective with millions of procedures performed worldwide.

What is CoolSculpting and how does it work?

CoolSculpting is based on the research done by two Harvard Scientists who observed that some children got dimples due to eating popsicles. The idea that cold can selectively affect and eliminate fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue was the insight behind the CoolSculpting procedure. The CoolSculpting procedure freezes fat cells that are then crystallized (frozen) and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body without needles, anesthesia, surgery, scars or downtime. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. Millions of CoolSculpting treatments have been performed to date on the thighs, abdomen, love handles, and bra fat with the other CoolSculpting applicators and it is the #1 non-invasive fat reduction treatment worldwide.

What are the benefits of the CoolMini treatment?

Aside from transforming your appearance with a slimmer neckline, the treatment is short (only one hour), there is no surgery, no downtime, and you will see optimum results in as little as two to three months. You won’t have to take days off of work, miss your daily activities or be away from your family during the holidays.

How does the CoolSculpting Mini treatment compare to Kybella?

Kybella treatments are injections that are FDA approved for the treatment of fat under the chin. The treatment requires about 10-20 needle injections under the chin over 2-5 treatment sessions. With our CoolSculpting mini treatment, there are no needles and fewer treatments are needed.

What can I expect after the CoolSculpting CoolMini treatment?

After treatment, you will experience some swelling or redness near the treatment area. And, over the next two to three months, you will see a 20-25% gradual reduction in the volume of fat under the chin.
