Double chin can be an embarrassing and distracting condition. While often associated with weight gain, double chin may also simply be a result of genetics or increased skin laxity as you age. Regardless of its cause, a double chin can obscure the jawline, produce a puffer and less defined appearance, and cause both emotional and physical discomfort.
At Farrell Plastic Surgery & Laser Center, we are pleased to offer a selection of non-surgical treatments for submental fat (double chin). Safe, effective, and minimally invasive, these treatments are designed to eliminate stubborn fat deposits, encourage skin shrinking, and improve the contours and definition of the jaw, chin, and neck.
CoolMini is an attachment for the CoolSculpting® machine that sculpts and slims the chin and neck by eliminating fat. Utilizing CoolSculpting’s proprietary cryolipolysis technology, CoolMini targets, and freezes problem fat cells without impacting surrounding muscle or tissue. Once these cells are crystallized by the extreme temperature, your body will simply eliminate them. What’s more, because there are no needles or incisions, you can be back to your daily activities with minimal downtime.
Results from CoolMini are gradual. It may take two to three months for your body to fully eliminate problem fat cells from the chin and neck, but once gone, submental fat cannot grow back. We will discuss results and expectations, including how many treatments you may need, during your initial consultation.
Kybella is an injectable treatment for the elimination of double chin. This treatment utilizes deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring bile acid, to break apart stubborn fat deposits in the chin. Over time, as fat is emulsified, the body will remove it through the normal channels of elimination.
It may take two to six Kybella treatments to obtain optimal results and, similar to other nonsurgical methods of fat removal, results will take some time to become noticeable. During your initial consultation, we will assess the amount of submental fat present to help you determine how many treatments you might require.
