How To Eliminate the Dreaded “Double Chin” With KYBELLA® and CoolSculpting®

You are sweating it out at the gym, drinking kale smoothies, and working towards the best version of you, happy and healthy. While exercise and good nutrition can sculpt your silhouette, there are certain stubborn bulges that are tough to get rid of, despite your best efforts. The fat below the chin, also called submental fat, is one of those areas. Luckily, there are two very effective, nonsurgical solutions: KYBELLA and CoolSculpting, available in the Des Moines area at our Ankeny, Iowa, dermatology clinic and spa.

Step 1: Consider Freezing the Fat With CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, nonsurgical procedure that works to freeze and eliminate unwanted fat cells under your chin area. During the procedure, you will be relatively comfortable and merely feel a sensation of cold or numbness. CoolSculpting is one of the safest procedures available for minimally invasive fat cell reduction. According to the National Library of Medicine, CoolSculpting is a reliable, safe alternative to procedures like liposuction.

At Revive, our team is proud to use CoolSculpting Elite, the latest and most updated technology in CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting Elite uses a new range of applicators that can target specific areas for even more precision. You can read about the advantages of using CoolSculpting Elite in this blog post.

Step 2: Look Into Dissolving Your Double Chin With KYBELLA

KYBELLA is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that can effectively melt away unwanted fat cells underneath the chin. Kybella is made of synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps our bodies break down fat during digestion. During treatment, we make multiple KYBELLA injections in a grid-like pattern under the chin to dissolve fat cells and give you a more sculpted profile. While you may experience swelling during recovery, the experienced team at Revive will get you back into your usual routine as soon as possible.

KYBELLA injectable treatments are also minimally invasive, nonsurgical, and a great alternative to liposuction or surgery with little downtime. To complement your new, slimmer neck and chin, Revive offers a variety of safe and effective facial injectable procedures to create your perfect profile.

Step 3: Consult With the Pros to Learn Which Treatment Is Right for You

Both CoolSculpting and KYBELLA procedures are stars at targeting and eliminating unwanted fat cells under the chin without the need for surgery. CoolSculpting uses intense cold to freeze the cells away, while KYBELLA uses deoxycholic acid to break down fat. Both approaches sometimes require multiple treatments, and results develop over several weeks.

CoolSculpting and KYBELLA treatments are widely popular and proven effective in safely eliminating fat cells under the chin.

Expert consultation and explanation of procedure, what to expect afterwards, the risks and benefits. Staff was very friendly, helpful and made sure that I was completely informed and satisfied. Calmed my fears and gave reassurance. Did a follow up with me and made me feel beautiful and confident.

Love this place and love Aubrey. Highly recommend!

I’ve been going to Revive for several years. I’ve always had a great experience with everyone from the front desk staff to the dermatologists to the estheticians. The VIP program is amazing! Highly recommended!

Revive is the best dermatology clinic I have ever been to! After suffering from trial and error at the last clinic I went to, I was very hesitant to go to Revive. Right away, everyone was so caring and accommodating. I have never received such amazing service from any clinic I have been to, but Revive is leaps and bounds greater than your ordinary dermatology clinic. I received the hydra-facial from Maria, and I did not want to leave! The experience was amazing and the service was outstanding. The facial itself was incredibly relaxing and Maria walked me through the steps in the facial process since I had never received one before. Carissa at the front was so friendly and welcoming as well. I was seen right away and felt like everyone truly cared about my overall experience at the clinic. I would recommend Revive to anyone who is looking for dermatology services! I will be back!

I have had the BEST experience getting Botox at Revive with Aubrey. She is great at explaining the process and expected outcomes of the service. She’s very knowledgeable and I always appreciate her recommendations! All of the staff is welcoming and I always look forward to my appointments there!

I was really nervous getting any kind of procedure done that involves my face. The whole staff was very nice and made my experience awesome!!!!? I will be using this spa as my go to for all my dermatologic needs. A special thanks to Stefanie Gatica for making me feel better about myself!!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Thank you Tom! You are the best and we love having you come in!

I called several dermatology clinics and was unable to see anyone soon. Revive was able to do a Tele health visit the same day with me! Tawnya was kind and knowledgeable. I would recommend this clinic and return if needed!

Love this place for many aesthetic services & dermatology. The customer service is amazing! Stef always treats me like family and does a great job! Stef has caught skin cancer early and I’m forever grateful. Jayden, the manager, is so friendly and has helped me get the best prices with Allē. Jayden even went above and beyond to help out a friend with saving money also! 5 stars!
