There is a variety of reasons for developing a double chin – age, excess weight, poor posture and heredity. No matter what the reason, a double chin can detract from your appearance and may even affect your self-esteem. Fortunately, cosmetic surgery isn’t the only option for double chin removal or reduction.
If the cause of your double chin is excess weight, following a healthy weight loss plan is probably all you’ll need for effective double chin removal or reduction. Poor posture and aging can also play a part in developing a double chin. Correcting your posture and doing neck exercises to strengthen the platysma muscle can be helpful in the reduction of a double chin.
If this physical trait runs in your family, these methods may help slow down or prevent the onset of this undesired feature. However, when that dreaded double chin persists even after successfully reducing your weight or is simply the inevitable result of aging or heredity, there are other non-surgical solutions.
Have you finally reached your weight loss goal, but the double chin is still there? This is often the result of stubborn fat cells. While it has been successfully used on excess fat in other areas of the body, CoolSculpting can be a great non-surgical option for double chin removal or reduction.
Combined with CoolSculpting technology, the CoolMini applicator was designed to effectively reduce fat under the chin and contour the neck. Using controlled cooling, Coolsculpting targets and kills stubborn fat cells. In the weeks following treatment, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates dead cells. The treated fat cells are gone for good and maintaining a healthy lifestyle will help ensure long-lasting results. With this non-invasive fat reduction treatment, you can see results in 1-2 visits and it requires no needles, surgery or downtime.
Coolsculpting is just one option dealing with a double chin. There is also Kybella, which offers another non-surgical solution for reducing or eliminating a double chin. An injectable treatment, Kybella is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin. The active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella destroys the fat cells preventing them from continuing to store or accumulate fat. With just a series of small injections administered by a trained and licensed practitioner, it is possible for you to achieve the profile you always wanted.
Kybella doesn’t require any general anesthesia and there is virtually no down time. Patients receiving treatment typically return to their normal daily activities immediately. The treatment results are permanent. Once your prescribed treatment is completed, there’s no reason to have it done again.
