Stubborn fat on the chin can be a frustrating problem for many individuals. Despite exercise and diet, some people find that fat in this area persists. This can create an imbalance between other facial features.
Fortunately, there are now several non-surgical fat reduction treatments available that can help to address this challenge.
Two of the most popular treatments for double chin reduction are Kybella and CoolSculpting. In this article, we will discuss how each treatment works and compare the two to help you decide which is best for your chin!
Kybella for Permanent Fat Reduction
Kybella is a minimally invasive fat reduction treatment that is specifically designed to target the stubborn fat cells under the chin.
The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps to break down and absorb dietary fat. When injected into the fat cells under the chin, Kybella causes the destruction of these cells, leading to a reduction in the appearance of a double chin.
One of the main benefits of Kybella is that it provides permanent fat reduction for the double chin. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they cannot regenerate, meaning that the results of the treatment are long-lasting.
Dr. Jennifer Levine, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon in NYC, also uses Kybella to reduce fat in other stubborn areas of the body that body sculpting treatments cannot address, such as the ankles!
CoolSculpting for Non-Invasive Fat Reduction
CoolSculpting is another popular non-surgical fat reduction treatment that can be used to target the fat cells under the chin. This treatment works by the process of cryolipolysis, which freezes the fat cells, causing them to die off and be naturally eliminated from the body.
One of the main benefits of CoolSculpting is that it is a non-surgical treatment, meaning that there is no downtime required. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
CoolSculpting can also be used to target fat in other areas of the body, such as the thighs, abdomen, and love handles, making it a versatile treatment option for those looking for non-surgical body sculpting.

Comparing Kybella and CoolSculpting
When choosing the most appropriate method of double chin reduction, Dr. Levine considers various factors that are individual to the patient.
When selecting between Kybella and CoolSculpting, Dr. Levine may consider how much fat is present in the area. CoolSculpting works best for fat that is ‘grabbable,’ whereas Kybella is best for areas where there is less fat.
