Kybella vs. The New CoolMini by CoolSculpting as a Chin Fat Reduction Treatment
Non-surgical fat reduction in the submental area below the chin has received a boost this year with FDA clearance for two diverse and unique treatment approaches to address chin fat. For individuals looking for alternatives to liposuction plastic surgery for chin fat reduction, this new development offers an excellent opportunity.
Kybella or ATX-101 from Kythera is a treatment involving multiple injections to treat double chin. Another treatment is CoolMini by CoolSculpting, which is based on a unique cooling process to reduce submental fat. As a leading cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Gary Motykie offers both Kybella and CoolMini treatments to his patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
Earlier this year, Kybella became the first and only non-surgical treatment to receive an FDA approval for the reduction of double chin, which is caused by excess deposits of submental fat tissue. Kybella is proven and effective solution that can be customized to meet the personal aesthetic needs of patients seeking an enhanced chin profile without involving plastic surgery.
Patient satisfaction levels with Kybella are typically higher because significant improvements in the neck and chin appearance can be achieved without any cuts or incisions. Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby locations for Kybella and other treatments.
How does Kybella Work?
Kybella medication is derived from deoxycholic acid, which is naturally present in the body to assist in fat absorption. When this medication is injected directly into the submental fat region below the chin, it initiates the destruction of unwanted fat cells. These cells are eventually re-absorbed by the body.
Multiple injections are usually given in a single treatment session, and a maximum of six sessions spaced one month apart may be required. One session may last for about 15 minutes.
CoolMini applicator is an innovative device from Zeltiq, which is based on the same cooling treatment principle as CoolSculpting. CoolMini is specifically designed to address smaller areas of excess fat such as the double chin. The FDA has now cleared CoolMini treatment for submental fat reduction.
Its unique cooling process will simply freeze the targeted fat cells until they disintegrate and eventually get removed from the body in a natural way. CoolMini can clear smaller amounts of fat such as the submental fat relatively faster and more efficiently. It will take only one to two treatment sessions of one hour each to achieve about 20% fat reduction in the under-chin area.
Simple and Painless Treatment
While Kybella treatment will involve injections, the CoolMini treatment does not involve any needle or any other form of delivery of medication. CoolMini will numb the targeted area with a cold temperature, and as a result, the patient is likely to experience only minimal or no pain during the treatment.
In most cases, the patient will not have to go through any downtime, and they can resume their regular activities almost immediately. Dr. Motykie is one of the early adopters of highly innovative non-surgical double chin reduction procedures such as Kybella and CoolMini.
