What Non-Surgical Options Are Available for Eliminating Chin Fat?

Chin Fat Reduction Memphis

Share This Post

Submental fat (fat beneath the chin) can be difficult to target, especially through traditional means of diet and exercise. Many people struggle to see noticeable fat reduction around their jawline simply due to the extensive weight loss required to see a noticeable improvement. Additionally, fat beneath the chin is often a secondary result of the aging process, where facial fat pads start to give in to gravity’s influence and migrate toward the jawline.

While liposuction can help address submental fat, there are now plenty of non-surgical options for those wary of going under the knife. At Levy Dermatology in Memphis, TN, our board-certified dermatologists are proud to offer their patients a choice between two popular non-surgical chin fat reduction procedures: Kybella and CoolMini.

Wondering which one is right for you? Let’s take a look:

Kybella: Kybella is an FDA-approved injection containing deoxycholic acid; a fat destroying agent. Fat cells beneath the chin are targeted and killed through a series of injections and then flushed out over time through the body’s metabolic processes. Kybella injections take between 15-30 minutes to administer, with visible results in as little as 12 weeks. Kybella injections allow for high precision and are effective in targeting small, isolated areas of fat under the chin. However, many patients end up needing 2-4 injections before seeing ideal results, which can make it a more expensive option.

MemphisCoolMini: CoolMini uses the power of CoolSculpting to target and reduces fat cells underneath the chin. There are no needles involved; instead, a handheld device is used to deliver freezing energy to the treatment area. Fat cells become crystallized; these destroyed cells are naturally eliminated over time through the body’s metabolic processes. Results from CoolMini can typically be seen in 12 weeks. CoolSculpting’s CoolMini device is an excellent treatment option for clients with poor skin elasticity. While it may not be as precise as Kybella, CoolMini can treat a broader span of fat underneath the chin.
