CoolMini & Kybella®

*Shrink Your Double Chin at Capital Laser & Skin Care

Submental fullness, otherwise known as a “double chin,” is a common concern among both men and women, but often goes untreated because, until recently, the only option for improvement was surgery. Capital Laser & Skin Care offers two non-surgical alternatives for getting rid of neck fat that causes double chins. The fat-freezing CoolSculpting® system has an FDA-approved miniature applicator, CoolMini, specifically created to remove fat from the neck and help you say goodbye to your double chin. Kybella is the first FDA-approved injectable treatment to contour and improves the appearance of submental fullness without surgery.

How Does CoolMini Work?

CoolMini is a miniature applicator of the popular CoolSculpting non-surgical procedure created by Harvard scientists that uses a process known as cryolipolysis to freeze and minimize stubborn fat cells. It delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself intact. The treated fat cells crystallize then gradually self-destruct and die. Over time, the body naturally processes the fat and minimize these dead cells which result in a long-term, more sculpted appearance at the treatment site. CoolMini specifically targets stubborn fat that causes a double chin.

*What to Expect During Your CoolMini Procedure

During your treatment, a gel pad and applicator are placed on the targeted area. You may feel pulling, tugging and mild pinching at the beginning of the treatment. Controlled cooling is then delivered to the targeted fat layer. The sensation of cold during treatment usually subsides after five to ten minutes once the treatment area becomes numb. At this point, most patients will read, check email, watch a movie, or just take a nap. After CoolSculpting, most patients can return to normal activities right away. Although many people will start to notice results in as little as three weeks after treatment, the most dramatic changes are seen after three months.All of our CoolSculpting consultations and treatments are performed in our state-of-the-art body contouring suites for maximum privacy. During the consultation with a board-certified dermatologist, we will assess your area of concern and determine if you are a good candidate for treatment.

Kybella

How Does Kybella Work?

Kybella’s active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and elimination of dietary fat. When injected into the fat layer beneath the chin, Kybella causes the fat cells to die, once naturally removed by the body, those cells are gone for good. Most patients experience visible contouring and improvement in the shape of the jawline and chin profile within two to four treatments sessions. *For most patients, recovery time from swelling and bruising commonly lasts several days with the first treatment, but the severity of side effects typically decreases with subsequent Kybella treatments.

*What to Expect During Your Kybella Treatment

During your Kybella treatment, a specially created template is used to mark the injection sites along your chin. We will then carefully administer Kybella into the underlying layer of fat beneath the skin. This process works to target and remove these stubborn fat cells, which are then naturally flushed from your body. Within four weeks, you will begin to notice the results of your Kybella treatment as your body begins flushing away the treated fat cells. Your chin will appear gradually slimmer, with an improved contour. The total number of recommended treatments for optimal results will depend on individual needs.
