Easy, Effective Ways for Getting Rid of the Dreaded Double Chin
- Posted on: Nov 2 2017
Are you doing a double take in the mirror because you’re beginning to notice a double chin? It can be frustrating to see extra fat making a new home on your once contoured neckline. Maybe you’ve even tried stretches or exercises to get rid of it, only to discover that dealing with a double chin is quite literally- a pain in the neck.
What Causes a Double Chin?
Skin underneath your chin can start losing elasticity as you age, resulting in the appearance of extra skin beneath your chin. You may also be prone to a double chin from genetics, poor posture, or an unhealthy diet. However, there are several effective ways to get rid of a double chin.
CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved method that can reduce the fat under your chin and contour your neck in just one or two visits. A CoolSculpting applicator is placed on your skin and your fat cells are then frozen. These fat cells crystallize and naturally dissipate from your body. CoolSculpting is a popular treatment option for non-invasive fat removal with no down time following the procedure.
Liposuction in the submental area treats your double chin by removing fat with a suction or laser. A licensed professional administers local anesthesia, followed by a few small incisions to your double chin area. A small tube is inserted into the incisions to remove fat and tissue. While surgical, liposuction is a simple procedure done in the office with little or no downtime.
Kybella® is also approved by the FDA as a non-surgical injectable that can destroy fat cells underneath your chin. The injection contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your body that helps absorb fat cells. Usually a single treatment involves several small injections into the fat tissue, with two to four treatments six weeks apart. Kybella may cause temporary side effects such as swelling or bruising.
