Double chins are often associated with weight gain, but that’s not always true. Factors such as age, posture, and genetics can lead to you developing an additional layer of fat even if you have a healthy weight. This can cause an unflattering second fold under your chin, affecting your overall appearance and self-image.
While you might find many solutions for double chin treatments online, not all offer the same level of success. No evidence supports facial and neck exercises or beauty products that supposedly target the fat double chins. Before resorting to extreme and invasive measures such as double chin surgery, consider minimally invasive solutions that can be just as effective.
At Advanced Aesthetics, we deliver comprehensive double chin treatment in OKC. Instead of surgical options with increased risks and required downtime, we offer minimally invasive solutions personalized to your needs. Through our well-trained staff in our state-of-the-art aesthetic clinic, we can deliver double chin treatment to patients who want to achieve a well-contoured face.
What Treatment Is Offered For Double Chin?
Advanced Aesthetics offers personalized treatment plans for patients who want to achieve their beauty goals. When it comes to double chin treatments in OKC, we can recommend two options: CoolSculpting Elite and Kybella injections.
CoolSculpting Elite is an advanced version of CoolSculpting treatments. This non-invasive fat reduction procedure involves cryolipolysis, which targets freezing temperatures at fat cells without harming surrounding cells. Over the next four to six months, those broken fat cells will be absorbed by the body and excreted out as waste.
Kybella injections are a minimally invasive procedure to eliminate fat cells. Kybella is made of synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occuring substance in our bodies. When injected into the chin, Kybella destroys and gradually kills fat cells in the area. Over the next few weeks, your body will metabolize the fat cells, leading to a slimmer chin appearance.
What Is the Treatment Time For Reducing Double Chins?
How long it takes to see a noticeable difference and a reduced double chin can vary between patients and the type of treatment you’ve undergone.
A CoolSculpting session takes around one hour per treatment area. Most patients get around one to three sessions before achieving their desired appearance. Each session should be scheduled at least one to four months apart. You may see a noticeable difference a month around one to three months after your first session.
Kybella injections take less than 20 minutes per session. Depending on the amount of fat under your chin and your desired facial results, you may need up to six injections, with each one spread a month apart.
Double chin treatment for OKC patients can vary depending on the size of your double chin and how much fat you want to remove. Schedule a consultation to discuss a more accurate timeline for your goals.
What is The Price for Double Chin Treatments?
At Advanced Aesthetics, we offer Kybella in packages of four injectable vials suitable for two treatments at $2,500. For clients that need more than two treatments, additional vials cost $625 each.
The cost of CoolSculpting Elite treatments can vary depending on factors determined during the first complimentary consultation. The average price of a CoolSculpting Elite applicator is $800. However, the type of applicators used, how many used, and the number of sessions needed must be determined first.
What are The Side Effects of Double Chin Treatment?
Double chin treatments don’t provide instant results. Depending on your selected treatment, you could see noticeable results within weeks or months.
CoolSculpting combines gentle suctioning and extreme cooling around the chin area. Following the procedure, clients can experience common temporary symptoms that include:
- Redness and bruising
Clients receiving Kybella may experience the common symptoms associated with injections. These can include:
- Mild pain around the injection area
- Redness and bruising
- Rashes or bumps around the area
Both treatments result in temporary side effects that should subside within days after your treatment. Some bruises can take up to two weeks to heal completely. Our staff will gladly guide you through aftercare to mitigate the side effects following your session.
