Fullness under the chin and in the neck area is one sign of aging that is impossible to hide or conceal with clothing. If you are concerned with accumulations of chin and neck fat, you are among many who want a solution to this cosmetic flaw. A recent study conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery found that 68% of people were unhappy with their double chin or the full appearance of their neck.
Until recently the only option was plastic surgery, primarily liposuction. The trend toward nonsurgical solutions to combat the signs of aging has become stronger over the past few years, particularly in facial procedures. In alignment with that trend, there are now exciting nonsurgical solutions for permanently ridding the chin and neck of unwanted fat. If you are among the millions of Americans who dislike the look of their neck, please read on.
Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center is excited to be able to offer two new FDA-approved treatments specifically targeting stubborn deposits of fat under the chin and on the neck; Kybella® and CoolSculpting® Mini. These two procedures target and kill fat cells that are then safely and naturally eliminated from the body over the next few months. The result is spectacular according to our patients, giving them back the youthful neck and chin contours that age, lifestyle or genetics had taken away.
Kybella was approved in April as a non-surgical injectable treatment for moderate-to-severe fat located under the chin. The active ingredient is identical to an acid produced by the body to absorb fat cells. This acid destroys the cell membrane, which in turn destroys the cell, and allows the body to safely eliminate it. Tested in over 1000 adults in two clinical studies, Kybella is proven to be effective and safe, leaving other cells intact and untouched.
A Kybella treatment is normally 20 to 30 minutes long depending on the area to be treated. Before treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied to keep patients comfortable during the procedure. Injections are made with extremely small gauge needles just into the fat layer. Each session may have between 15 and 45 micro injections to ensure full coverage of the treatment area. Most patients will need between 3 to 6 sessions scheduled no more than a month apart, and will see definite improvement after the second treatment.
Side effects are minimal with most patients experiencing slight tenderness at the injection sites as well as mild swelling. Any post-treatment discomfort is well managed with over-the-counter pain medication.
Kybella must be administered by a trained professional to avoid involving skin cells. At Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center patients are only treated by licensed and trained professionals. Founded by four exceptionally talented and board certified plastic surgeons and dermatologists, Lasky Aesthetics professionals have safely delivered tens of thousands of rejuvenation treatments.
Freezing fat cells kills them, which then allows the body to eliminate them over time. CoolSculpting is a relatively new FDA approved procedure for reducing pockets of unwanted fat in large areas such as the abdomen or thighs. Millions of people have been overjoyed to finally rid themselves of an unwanted tummy bulge or the saddlebags on the outer thighs, but there was no way of applying this game-changing technology to small areas…until now.
In September, the FDA approved the use of this controlled cooling technology, clearing it for use in reducing chin fat. Approval of the new CoolMini™applicator makes it possible to safely treat small pockets of fat under the chin, permanently eliminating a feature that plagues millions of Americans. Men are more prone to accumulating fat in the chin and neck and make up a third of the patients who seek treatment for a double chin.
Treatment lasts about an hour and is very comfortable. CoolSculpting works by gently cooling only the fat cells, and does not harm other cells in the area being treated. Most patients achieve the result they were hoping for in two sessions. The results can be seen after a month, with the greatest improvement being achieved 2 to 3 months following treatment.
There are over 50 published clinical studies demonstrating the safety of this treatment. Since the original release of CoolSculpting as a non-invasive fat reducing treatment, this revolutionary technology has been delivered over two million times in over 70 countries.
Having a double chin is more than a cosmetic annoyance. For men, it can mean being very uncomfortable when wearing a suit and tie, which can make working in a professional capacity unpleasant. Another liability of a double chin is it gives the impression of being overweight, even in those of normal weight.
Now it is possible to permanently eliminate a double chin in a few sessions of Kybella or CoolSculpting Mini. Contact one of the professionals at Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center today for a consultation to determine the best treatment for your unique needs. The best part about Kybella or CoolSculpting Mini is that once treatment is finished, your fat is gone for good.
