Fat accumulation under the chin can create a “double chin” appearance that may make you feel self-conscious. You have several treatment options for reducing this submental fat. Two of our favorite choices are non-invasive and involve little to no downtime. If you want more contour under your chin and around your neck and jaw, we can help you achieve it.
CoolSculpting® vs. Kybella®, How Should I Reduce My Double Chin?
These treatments effectively reduce a double chin, but they work differently.
CoolSculpting® uses cold temperatures to freeze and damage fat cells. It has small applicators designed for use on areas like the double chin. Treatment lasts about an hour, and some people may need two or three treatments.
Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that uses deoxycholic acid to break up fat cells. This molecule occurs in your digestive system, breaking down dietary fats. When injected, it targets fat cells and damages them.
Both treatments result in damaged fat cells. The body will remove these over a few months, filtering them away through the lymphatic system. Both use non-invasive methods with minimal downtime. Your Levy Dermatology experts will help you decide which treatment matches your needs and lifestyle.
