Is two better than one? Most would say yes—two is better than one. Would that still be the case when it comes to the double chin?
The double chin, an excess of fat (known as submental fat) in the submental space (the area underneath the chin), is an infamous problem area for many—even for those with consistent diets and exercise routines. While many factors like genetics and aging can cause a double chin there are many ways to treat it!
WITH THE RISE OF NON-SURGICAL PROCEDURES AND MEDICAL ADVANCEMENTS, GETTING RID OF THAT DOUBLE CHIN IS EASIER THAN EVER—ESPECIALLY WITH THE INTRODUCTION OF KYBELLA AND COOLSCULPTING.
The providers at Willow Aesthetics are experts in Kybella, an injectable treatment of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring product in our body that helps break down and absorb fat. The treatment is administered by depositing the product to the problem area via a fine needle injection. The deoxycholic acid breaks down the unwanted fat which, then, gets absorbed into the body. The treatment normally requires multiple doses, but once the fat is eliminated it is permanently gone. There may be swelling and a bit of bruising, but most can return to their daily routine the same day!
At CHILL, CoolSculpting is all they do! CoolSculpting is a cooling technology that freezes fat to permanently eliminate it. The procedure is done via an applicator that vacuums up the unwanted fat to freeze the cells below without damaging the skin or underlying tissue. The area becomes numb due to the cooling temperatures, so no anesthesia is needed. However, the procedure is still painless! Multiple treatments offer the best results, but once those fat cells are frozen these are permanently gone. Because the process is non-invasive, there is no downtown or recovery period. You can return to daily activities right away!
No treatment is better than the other! It’s just about finding the right procedure for you.
Kybella can target very detailed and precise areas with its fine needle injections while CoolSculpting targets larger regions. Because of the type of applicator CoolSculpting uses to administer treatment, the size of the problem area is a factor for candidacy.
If you are looking to treat precise or small areas, Kybella would be the best option. Similarly, if you want to target larger regions, CoolSculpting would be the better option.
