Until recent years, traditional liposuction was the only way to remove exercise-resistant fatty deposits on the thighs, hips, waistline, buttocks and belly. Traditional liposuction has also been the only way to get rid of a double chin for patients who didn't want a neck lift or a mini face lift. But now, thanks to innovative non-surgical liposuction alternatives, you can kiss that double chin and stubborn body fat goodbye with no downtime, no surgery and minimal discomfort.
CoolSculpting is a modern, non-surgical liposuction alternative that zaps stubborn body fat quickly and easily using fat-freezing technology, delivering long-lasting results without incisions. The treatment is effective, safe, painless and brief. Unlike traditional liposuction, CoolSculpting is performed on the surface of the skin without surgery or anesthesia. Complications are rare, and healing is rapid. CoolSculpting sessions can be completed in under an hour, and most patients resume daily activities immediately after treatment.
With CoolSculpting, fat is removed via a state-of-the-art patented technology called cryolipolysis. Instead of suctioning fat out of the body like traditional liposuction, cryolipolysis freezes and kills fat cells, which then leave the body through the lymphatic system. This non-surgical liposuction alternative chills the surface of the skin using an applicator tool, causing the fat cells beneath the skin to die off and disappear, with results visible over four to eight weeks. The tissue surrounding the treated areas is not harmed, and patients can opt for multiple sessions to achieve even more dramatic results.
Fat cells in the skin are very sensitive to the cold. When these cells are treated with extreme cold for a certain length of time, the fat cells die, and the thickness of the fat pocket is reduced. The fat cells eliminated with CoolSculpting are not replaced with new fat cells, so the offending fatty deposits do not reappear over time.
In the past, the only way to eliminate a double chin was with a surgical neck lift, a mini face lift or traditional liposuction. Now, thanks to recent FDA approval, fat pockets beneath the chin can be safely and easily removed using a non-surgical liposuction alternative called the CoolMini.
CoolMini is the new applicator with CoolSculpting for neck and chin fat reduction. It is safe, effective and noninvasive. It involves no injections, no incisions and no downtime. The only difference between CoolSculpting and the CoolMini is that the CoolMini applicator tool is designed to remove smaller fat pockets like those beneath the chin.
Kybella is another non-surgical liposuction alternative that received recent FDA approval for use in removing excess fat beneath the chin. Kybella contains deoxycholic acid. This active ingredient destroys the excess fat cells causing the double chin. Kybella is a double chin injection that is delivered directly into fat cells, and one session typically lasts for about 30 minutes. Treatments are performed on an outpatient basis, and there may be some minor swelling immediately after a session. Most patients require two to four sessions to achieve optimal results, and many patients see a visible reduction in double chin fat after two or three treatments.
These high-tech cosmetic technologies deliver safe and effective enhancements that quickly become visible. At the same time, there is minimal inconvenience, little downtime and almost no risk for the patient.
