In a world filled with online images of flawlessly contoured chins and sculpted jawlines, the presence of a double-chin can make anyone feel insecure about their appearance. Excess fat under the chin, also called “submental fullness,” can make us appear older and heavier than we actually are. For men, it can make facial features appear softer, and less masculine. For women, a double chin can diminish our confidence in wearing neckline revealing fashions. There are currently two predominant, non-surgical methods to decrease submental fullness, slim your chin, and make you love your profile again!

A double chin can be an unfortunate genetic trait, as well as one acquired through weight gain. When genetics are in play, it is almost impossible to ditch a double chin, even with diet and exercise. When submental fullness occurs due to weight gain, someone can find it difficult to lose this last bit of facial fat even when they have resumed a healthy lifestyle and lost weight. At one time, only surgical intervention, such as liposuction, could address a double chin. But there are now two highly effective, safe, and completely non-surgical options available to those who would prefer to avoid the cost and downtime of surgery. Both are offered at Skin Artisans!

CoolSculpting® is the #1 FDA-approved, non-surgical, fat reduction treatment in the world. This innovative fat-freezing technology safely drops the temperature of your skin to a therapeutic level that has been clinically proven to destroy fat cells – permanently. CoolSculpting® destroys up to 25% of fat cells with each treatment. Afterward, the damaged fat cells are safely removed by your body’s lymphatic system over several weeks. During this time, the treated area will continue to reduce in size, become more contoured, and may even appear tighter in the case of your chin. Depending on the initial amount of fat present, multiple treatments may be needed to see a full correction.

Kybella® is the first and only injectable treatment that is FDA-approved to decrease submental fullness. The active ingredient in Kybella® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. This is a naturally occurring molecule in our bodies that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When Kybella® is injected into the fat beneath your chin, it destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness and improvements to the contours of your chin and jawline over time. Although multiple treatments may be needed depending on the initial amount of fat present under your chin, results are permanent.

It’s important to note that a double chin differs from what many people call a turkey neck, or loose, excess skin under the chin and jawline. For CoolSculpting® and Kybella® to be effective, fat must be present. Thin, crepey, and sagging skin under your chin or jawline is best treated with plastic surgery.

At Skin Artisans, we have an exceptionally skilled team of Advanced Practice Esthetician CoolSculpting® providers. Each has received extended, advanced training that has certified them with the title of Master CoolSculpting® Provider. Together, they have over 20 years of combined experience providing CoolSculpting® treatments!

Our team of Injection Specialists are also uniquely skilled in helping you gain a more defined jawline and slimmer chin. Each has been injecting Kybella® for at least five years or more, and once your results have set in, can further enhance the angles and sharpness of your jawline with the use of cosmetic injectables if needed.

Both CoolSculpting® and Kybella® are extremely effective in helping you ditch your double chin. To determine which option is best suited for you, we recommend scheduling a complimentary consultation with both an Advanced Practice Esthetician and Injection Specialist. Before long, you’ll be on your way to tossing turtlenecks aside and proudly showing off your new profile!
