About Face Medical Aesthetics, PLLC offers non-surgical face and body contouring options in a safe and relaxing environment. CoolSculpting® and its new generation of innovation, CoolAdvantage, are clinically proven to help with fat cell elimination and are able to target areas in short periods of time, with little to no discomfort. CoolAdvantage can be used on most areas of the body, including the submental region (under the chin), abdomen, flanks, back, thighs, and knees.
We also offer Kybella®, an innovative, injectable fat cell elimination option. It is the only product of its kind currently available on the market. Used for smaller areas of the body, Kybella® aims to dissolve fat cells safely through a series of mapped injections. Your body can then shed the cells naturally over time.
CoolSculpting® was developed by scientists at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital. This technology focuses on non-invasive fat reduction, rather than weight loss. Contrary to popular belief, traditional weight loss programs do not eliminate fat cells—they simply make them smaller.
One of our highly skilled CoolSculpting®-certified medical professionals will use a handheld device to target the fat layer with a controlled cooling infusion. This specific cooling method is called cryolipolysis, which can cause fat cell termination. The dead cells can then be processed and removed naturally by the body. Once the cells are eliminated, the skin and remaining tissue can readjust, helping to create a more sculpted look.
We now offer DualSculpting, with two CoolSculpting® CoolAdvantage units. In fact, we are currently the only DualSculpting center in the NH Seacoast area. The new-generation CoolSculpting® CoolAdvantage equipment uses updated technology that can allow us to cut the treatment time in half for most areas. With the addition of a second CoolSculpting® CoolAdvantage unit, we can also treat two areas at the same time, which can further cut the time required.
CoolSculpting® for the Chin/Submental Fullness
In addition to targeting fat cells around the body, CoolSculpting® can be used to help treat submental fullness, or the “double chin.” This is one of the most sought-after procedures, and it can often be very effective.
A double chin can cause self-image issues for both men and women and is sometimes difficult to target with diet and exercise alone. This is especially true if the issue is hereditary. Rather than choosing an invasive procedure, such as traditional liposuction, to remove the excess fat from underneath your chin, consider freezing the fat away. An effective treatment will produce tightened contours of your chin and jawline, and there will typically be little to no downtime.
As a result of aging, weight gain, or genetics, both men and women can develop an accumulation of fat in the lower face, commonly referred to as the “double chin.” Along with the double chin, many of us may also experience small, localized pockets of stubborn fat in other areas of the body. These particular areas can also be difficult to target with diet and exercise. Although there are surgical procedures available to correct these issues, the extensive healing and downtime involved are not always ideal. We offer the non-surgical treatment Kybella® as an alternative.
Kybella® was specifically formulated to reduce the appearance of a double chin, but it can be used to help eliminate fat in other areas of the body, such as bra and back fat, as well as fat around the knees and ankles. Kybella® involves a series of injections with a substance called deoxycholic acid, which is identical to one that our body naturally creates. The treatment can result in the gradual, permanent elimination of fat cells, helping to create and contour a tighter, more youthful facial profile—without the use of surgery.
