Will these techniques get rid of double chins?
I have that--and it's sorta crepey, too--what some infomercial I saw called "crazy skin." Gee, that was warm and fuzzy.
Of course, there is a new drug--Kybella, recently approved by the FDA, which is injected into the chin rolls, "with a high rate of success," Lieb says.
Kybella bursts the fat cell membrane, allowing the liquefied fat to reabsorb into the body Expect to need three to four treatments, one a month, with the worst cases requiring up to six. Does it leave empty skin under there? She didn't say. Side efx are mild pain and swelling.
Also non-surgical is Cool Sculpting, also FDA approved. Carefully controlled cooling to the chin rolls freezes the fat inside and over time, your body gets rid of it. Two treatments--and in 2-3 months, you should see great things.
A third approach is Ulthera--using ultrasound to treat tha tissue under the surface of the skin to stimulate new collagen and elastic tissue. Over 2-3 months, you should see firmer, less saggy skin.
She mentioned no prices for these treatments, so I am assuming you must really want better selfies to undergo any of these treatments. Really, really want.
