How Can I Get Rid of a Double Chin Without Surgery?
The appearance of a double chin is a common cosmetic concern among our patients at Sanova Dermatology. The buildup of fat under the chin, also known as submental fat or fullness, can reduce the prominence and the definition of the chin and jawline. In the past, patients wishing to address a double chin had to resort to surgical methods, such as liposuction or a neck lift to get their desired results. However, our dermatologists now offer two innovative non-surgical treatments that are FDA-approved to eliminate excess fat under the chin.
While many of our patients are familiar with the benefits of CoolSculpting® to sculpt the abdomen, flanks, or thighs, the same Cryolipolysis® technology can now be used to target submental fat. With the CoolMini™ applicator, your dermatologist cools unwanted fat cells under the chin, which are then eliminated from the body through the natural metabolic process.
Another popular and effective option for removing submental fat is called KYBELLA™. Using a series of two to four treatment sessions, KYBELLA™ is injected into the fat beneath the chin. KYBELLA™’s active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, can dissolve unwanted submental fullness with an active ingredient the body already uses to naturally metabolize fat.
CoolSculpting®’s CoolMini™ applicator and KYBELLA™ can help you achieve a more contoured chin, defined features, and youthful appearance. To learn more about these double chin treatments, please contact us today.
