This time of year, many women and men are seeing positive results from their diet and exercise resolutions. However, despite our best efforts, some areas of the body can be especially persistent, including pesky double chin issues.
So, is Kybella or SculpSure right for you?
Continue reading to learn all about these non-surgical fat removal procedures and what patients can expect should they decide to undergo treatment.
What is Kybella?
How Does It Work?
Composed of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, Kybella is injected into areas of localized fat under the chin. The solution is able to permanently destroy fat cells, which are gradually cleared from the body by the lymphatic system.
How Many Kybella Treatments Are Recommended?
Kybella double chin treatment can be customized to each patient’s needs and goals. Accordingly, a series of 3-6 Kybella sessions, spaced at least a month apart, is recommended for optimal fat reduction, neck slimming, and jaw refinement.
Kybella is an extremely safe and effective treatment for stubborn submental fat. In clinical trials, 79% of patients noted improvement to their appearance.
What is SculpSure?
SculpSure is a non-surgical procedure that eliminates stubborn fatty tissue from the body and chin. It’s an excellent alternative to liposuction and is performed in the comfort of our office, without incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.
How Does It Work?
During a 25-minute procedure, SculpSure transmits laser energy through skin to attack subcutaneous fat cells. The device alternates between precisely heating and cooling tissue, for maximum effects and patient comfort.
How Many SculpSure Treatments Are Recommended?
Most patients notice visible slimming and fat reduction following two SculpSure treatments. These sessions are typically scheduled 4-6 weeks apart.
How Quickly Will Patients See Results?
Women and men can expect to achieve up to a 24% reduction in submental fat following SculpSure. These results occur gradually and peak around 3 months post-procedure.
