If you are unhappy with your chin and want a safe and effective way of treating this area, there are two treatments you can consider, both of which are non-invasive. Both Belkyra and Coolsculpting are non-surgical treatments that will provide you with results. In order to choose the option that is best for you, you have to understand the details and procedure of both treatments so that you can make an informed decision.
Coolsculpting has been around for a while now and is effective because it freezes the fat pocket that leads to the fullness that creates a double chin. This treatment will improve the appearance of your chin because it will tighten your skin and reduce the look of a double chin as a result. Multiple treatments will be required, although it is highly effective when treating this particular area of the face, so patients will be happy with the results. Most people will need about five treatments to experience the effects and to see results, and one of the main benefits of Coolsculpting is that it is a lot more affordable than a neck lift. The downside is that the sessions can be painful, so your tolerance levels will play a role in your ability to seek this treatment.
Belkyra is newer, and this treatment has not been around as long as Coolsculpting, but it is equally as effective. The treatment consists of an injectable solution that dissolves fat, and the solution is injected safely into the patient’s chin area, and the dissolved fat is then taken up by the cells of the body, after which they will be disposed of naturally. Belkyra is becoming more and more popular because many patients see results after just one treatment. Improvements will be visible right away, and the injections are relatively painless, so if your tolerance levels are low, this treatment may be the better option to consider. Numbness and burning may occur after the treatment, but these are easily manageable and will disappear quite fast. Some patients may experience swelling as well, which can last for a few days, but this, too, will go away and is not very common, so it should not be a concern. Most clients will require three to four treatments.
The area you wish to have treated will play a big role in your decision because Belkyra is generally preferred when treating a double chin, while Coolsculpting is usually better for body contouring.
