According to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, nearly 70% of Americans are bothered by excess fat under the chin — that’s more than those who express concerns over lines and wrinkles! CoolSculpting® Elite is the latest innovation in non-surgical fat reduction technology that can help alleviate this troublesome area. Here is everything you need to know about CoolSculpting Elite for under the chin.

What Causes a Double Chin?

There are many factors (like diet and genetics) that contribute to a double chin. The most common cause of a double chin (or submental fullness) is weight. When you gain weight, fat is often deposited in the face and under the chin — and the fatty deposit eventually give way to gravity over time and begins to sag as it hangs lower. The good news is that the skin around the chin and neck area is very elastic. So, it is possible to address it with CoolSculpting Elite.

How Does CoolSculpting Elite Work?

Have you ever wondered why certain areas of your body (like your chin and neck) hold onto excess fat and are immune to diet and exercise? It’s often the result of several factors (e.g., age, genetics, and hormones) that influence fat distribution in our bodies. This unwanted fat under the chin is a common concern for many, and CoolSculpting Elite may be the double chin treatment you have been looking for.

CoolSculpting Elite is an FDA-approved treatment that uses a process called cryolipolysis, a method that targets and freezes fat cells beneath the skin without damaging the skin itself. When the fat cells are exposed to controlled cooling, they crystalize and “die off.” Over the next few weeks to months, your body naturally eliminates these dead cells, leaving the treated area more contoured and defined.

Is CoolSculpting Elite Good for Targeting the Chin Area?

Absolutely! CoolSculpting Elite destroys the fat cells (up to 25%) directly under the chin to deliver long-term results. Reduction of volume is seen in as little as 3 weeks with continued reduction up to 6 months. Unlike invasive procedures like liposuction, CoolSculpting Elite is non-surgical and has minimal downtime. You can return to your daily routine immediately following a session. With CoolSculpting Elite, achieving a smoother, more contoured chin and neck area has never been easier or more convenient.

What Is the Difference Between CoolSculpting Elite & Kybella®?

CoolSculpting Elite is not the only treatment for chin fat removal. Kybella® can also help you achieve an improved chin profile.

Kybella is a cosmetic injection that targets fat beneath the chin. The active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys the fat cells, which results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further Kybella treatment is not expected once you reach your desired goal.

While CoolSculpting Elite and Kybella permanently reduce fat, each treatment has a few significant differences. Many patients see results with CoolSculpting® in as little as 2 treatments spaced 3 months apart. With Kybella, it can be a series of injections up to 6 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.

Who Is a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting Elite?

A good candidate for CoolSculpting Elite is an individual who has stubborn fat under the skin that you cannot lose with diet and exercise. It is important to know that CoolSculpting Elite is not a weight loss treatment and is best done when you are close to an ideal weight. When you schedule your complimentary consultation with one of our CoolSculpting Specialists, they will be able to address your concerns and create a personal treatment plan for you.

What Else Should I Know About CoolSculpting Elite & Kybella?

The treatment you choose will depend on various factors, such as the size of your chin and neck, how fast you want results, and your budget. Kybella will help you achieve quicker results, while CoolSculpting Elite might be the preferred option if you want to lessen the discomfort felt during the treatment. Additionally, Kybella is best used to treat small areas of fat while CoolSculpting Elite can treat larger areas. If you are attempting to target loose skin in the chin area, neither CoolSculpting nor Kybella may be the best procedure for you, as they both target fat instead of skin elasticity.
