How The treatment Works
Say Goodbye to your double chin. Chin fat can be annoying, unsightly and can deflate your self esteem. Having a procedure to reduce chin fat can make you feel more comfortable with the shape of your chin and neck. Alternatively, you can do chin exercises, maintain a healthy lifestyle, and eat a healthy diet to help you to lose weight in this area but it’s generally a slow process.
At Cosmetic Laser Solutions MedSpa, we offer two choices for chin fat removal. Services are supervised by our board-certified plastic surgeon and Laser Clinical Director.
AGNES RF Laser is our optimal choice for a non-surgical treatment to remove fat in the under chin area. The other minimally invasive option for double chin fat removal is with Kybella®. Kybella® is an FDA-approved formula that is injected under the chin to dissolve the fat cells.
Both options are for adults with submental (under chin) fullness and will permanently destroy fat cells to improve your profile. Our preferred method for fat removal is with the FDA-approved device AGNES RF. AgnesRF liquefies fat with a radiofrequency (RF) probe. For Kybella, the solution is composed of sodium deoxycholate. This is injected into the area and will cause the fat cell membrane to rupture.
How does Chin Fat Removal work with AGNES RF?
Utilizing AGNES RF technology, a micro-insulated needle penetrates the skin and eliminates fat deposits by selectively heating the tissue with radiofrequency energy.
The beauty behind this method is the ability to not only remove chin fat but to contour and reshape it for a more chiseled appearance.
Additionally, while getting ride of stubborn fat cells, the energy from the radiofrequency procedure stimulates your collagen production, causing it to contract and tighten over time. Fabulous!
We highly recommend Agnes RF as an alternative to the Coolscuplting CoolMini treatment. The disadvantage of the Coolmini device is that it’s limited by the handpiece size. However, with AGNES RF, there are no limitations to the size of the area being treated. In addition, AGNES RF includes a skin tightening benefit that further improves the appearance of the treatment area.
How does Kybella Work?
An alternative to AGNES RF is Kybella®. Kybella® treats under chin and neck fat by injecting a compound called deoxycholic acid. This substance naturally occurs in the body and aids in breaking down and absorbing fat throughout body areas.
By strategically injecting this molecule throughout the chin, you can naturally eliminate submental fullness without the need for plastic surgery or liposuction. Treatment with Kybella involves multiple injections into the chin area. It is a little uncomfortable, but tolerable. Post treatment there is swelling which subsides over a 10 day period.
Each treatment session includes multiple small injections under your chin area and can take 20-30 minutes. For optimal results, most patients have 4-6 treatments spaced about 2-4 weeks apart.
