Current Methods Available for Getting Rid of a Double Chin

Beauty, spa. Attractive woman with beautiful faceThe American Society for Dermatologic Surgery conducted a survey, which revealed almost 70 percent of people with double chin are bothered by the excess fat. If there is a minimally invasive procedure that promises great results, will you avail? Alternatively, will you opt for options that are more traditional?

Double Chin Injection

Visible results after two or four treatments of 15–20 minutes each, using a non-surgical technique target fat cells — this is the promise of a state-of-the-art injection known as Kybella. It melts double chin fat. The active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, which has been shown to melt fat effectively and has approval from the US Food and Drug Administration.

The injection is an alternative to liposuction and is available in Kybella centers in Beverly Hills. It is gaining popularity despite the cost, which ranges from $1,200 to $1,800. Trials not only show the procedure to be safe, but effective as well, with good feedback from patients.

Traditional Treatments for Double Chin

Most times, skin tightening creams will not help much. If the double chin is still mild, the active ingredients in skin tightening creams might have some effect. However, these products act as a shrink-wrap and do not do much else to the fat contained within.

If you have more than a few hundred dollars to spare, a neck lift should remove the excess chin altogether. Removal of the fat and sagging of the skin in a four-hour operation is usually worth the investment.

A neck lift is usually the recommended option for persons older than 55 years. For younger people who wish to get rid of their double chin, a micro liposuction is a viable option. This procedure is about half the cost of a neck lift in the US.

You don’t have to live with that double chin anymore. Are you ready to receive a series of injections under the chin? Alternatively, are you thinking about undergoing a surgical procedure? Make that decision count!
