Blog: Painless Treatments to Remove Stubborn Fat

Posted July 10, 2019 in CoolSculpting®, Kybella®

Many men and women desire a slimmer body and a more defined jawline. Changing your diet to eat healthier and incorporating more exercise into your routine can be a great start to achieving your ideal physique, but these are not always enough to adequately address fat deposits.

Stubborn fat deposits are often diet and exercise resistant, which can cause frustration for many people. Luckily, with CoolSculpting® and other pain-free, non-invasive treatments, your stubborn fat can become a thing of the past!

What Is CoolSculpting®?

By freezing fat cells in targeted areas, CoolSculpting® can remove undesirable fat deposits on the body in as few as two to five treatments.

CoolSculpting® can treat the jawline and under the chin, arms, lower back, abdomen, flanks, bra line, and thighs. Frozen fat cells eventually die, and your body naturally eliminates the dead cells within six months to significantly reduce the remaining fat.

What Are Kybella® Injections?

Kybella® cosmetic injectable is designed to improve your facial profile by destroying fat cells that cause a double chin. Injections are administered beneath the chin area to create a thinner contour.

Treatment is quick, and there are few risks involved. Kybella® consists of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring component in the body that assists in breaking down dietary fat for absorption. Destroyed fat cells are gone permanently.

How Long Does It Take?

Injectables typically take between 15 and 20 minutes to complete. CoolSculpting® can take approximately 35 to 45 minutes per treatment.

Which Treatment Is Best for Me?

Minimally invasive techniques do not require anesthesia, incisions, or any downtime so you can resume your daily life directly after your treatment. The extent and location of your fat and your preferences contribute to which process is recommended.

Kybella® specifically targets chin fat, whereas CoolSculpting® can address multiple areas of concern.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Your desired results and surgeon’s recommendations can determine the number of treatments you will need to achieve your goals.

Patients typically need a minimum of two treatments per area of concern, and some require additional treatment to improve their outcome.

Why Choose Less Intrusive Treatments?

Patients who want to abolish stubborn fat cells while avoiding scars from incisions, a lengthy recuperation, and extensive pricing can turn to less invasive techniques to avoid these concerns.

Non-surgical techniques are quick, easy, and virtually painless. If you lead a busy lifestyle, then allowing adequate time for a recovery period may not be an option. Non-invasive treatments allow fast fat removal for improved body contours.
