What is the Best Way to Reduce a Double Chin?

CoolSculpting and Kybella

Let’s face it: Sometimes diet and exercise aren’t enough to target and treat a double chin. It can take a significant amount of weight loss to see any kind of result around your jawline; even then, your genes might make you more likely to store fat underneath your chin. So if you’re looking to treat a double chin, you might need a little extra help.

What Treatments Are Available for Double Chin Reduction?

Fortunately, there are a number of double chin treatments that can help you contour your jawline and reclaim your face shape.  Two of the best non-surgical treatments for a double chin include:


Kybella is an FDA-approved injection that uses a naturally occurring compound – deoxycholic acid – to eat away at fat cells within submental (under chin) tissue. Kybella has only been around for about two years, but it’s already an extremely popular treatment, given that it aggressively targets double chin fat without requiring surgery.  Most patients only need 2 to 3 Kybella treatments to see optimal results.

Best of all? Results from Kybella treatments are permanent, provided you continue to follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen!


CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved body contouring procedure that uses freezing energy to remove fat cells without harming surrounding healthy tissue. CoolMini uses this same technology but with a smaller handpiece, which allows it to target smaller areas of the body (like underneath the chin). Most people need a few CoolSculpting Mini sessions to see ideal results. And like Kybella, results from CoolSculpting Mini are permanent, so long as patients maintain a healthy lifestyle.
