Kybella® vs. Coolsculpting
Kybella® and Coolsculpting are both minimally-invasive treatments for the reduction of submental fat, or a double chin. Coolsculpting works by freezing the fat cells in the targeted area, which causes cell apoptosis (death). Kybella® works by chemically breaking down fat cells. Both Kybella and Coolsculpting can eliminate the total number of fat cells in the treated area, but Kybella is the only procedure available that is able to target small, well-defined, areas of fat accumulation resulting in precise contouring. At Bryn Mawr Dermatology, we often combine the powerful debulking abilities of Coolsculpting and the precise defining capabilities of Kybella® to get optimal results.
