Nonsurgical Solutions for the Double Chin

Nonsurgical Solutions for the Double ChinLiving with a double chin can be an unpleasant and frustrating experience. The most common cause of a double chin is a person carrying excess fat due to genetics or weight gain. Diet and exercise are generally not enough to take care of a double chin. Cosmetic surgery procedures like a neck lift can help alleviate fullness under the chin, but surgery can often be unappealing to certain patients for a variety of reasons. AYA Medical Spa offers a variety of nonsurgical treatments and skincare products designed to improve a patient’s overall appearance by treating the dreaded double chin.

Let us begin by introducing our newest cosmetic treatment: the CoolMini nonsurgical fat reduction by CoolSculpting®. This FDA-approved device is perfect for safely and effectively eliminating the double chin by reducing submental fat under the chin. The CoolMini utilizes cold temperatures to freeze and damage the fat found within cells, causing the body to eventually expel the fat without the need for any injections or anesthetic. CoolMini patients typically only require between 1 – 3 treatment sessions to see significant improvements to their appearance. CoolMini treatments are simple, side-effect free and require no downtime for recovery. The CoolMini device can be used effectively on men and women of all ages and skin types.

Kybella® nonsurgical fat reduction is also FDA-approved and proven to work wonders on a patient’s double chin. Unlike the CoolMini, Kybella® uses injections to reduce submental fat and provide results similar to a liposuction procedure. Kybella® injections are administered directly into the fat under the chin, destroying localized fat cells able to accumulate fat. One of the great perks of Kybella® is that treatment sessions are fast (generally around 20 minutes), and like CoolMini treatments, require no downtime for recovery.

Skincare products can also help considerably when it comes to treating the skin around a patient’s neck. Nectifirm®, a highly-effective neck cream from Revision® Skincare, can serve as an excellent solution for loose skin, horizontal necklace lines, turkey neck and fat accumulation under the chin. Nectifirm® is designed specifically to handle neck skin by utilizing a potent mix of plant extracts, antioxidants and unique biotechnological blends. We recommend gently applying Nectifirm® twice daily (morning and evening).
