What is Double Chin Reduction?

A double chin is one of the most stubborn cosmetic problems to deal with, as the fat in this area can be incredibly resistant to diet and exercise. NUSCULPT specializes in effective solutions to help patients reduce the appearance of a double chin. For this treatment, we use Kybella®. Kybella® is an injectable treatment composed of deoxycholic acid, a unique acid that helps the body break down and absorb fat. Another treatment option is CoolSculpting®. CoolSculpting® is a body contouring procedure, usually promoted as an alternative to liposuction, that freezes fat cells through a process called cryolysis. Applying extreme temperatures fat cells damages them, cuing the body to reabsorb and eliminate fat.

How is Double Chin Reduction Performed?

Double chin reduction is performed with Kybella® injections. The first step of treatment is applying a topical anesthetic to the skin to minimize the discomfort from injections. Afew injections will be administered to the neck and chin area. Immediately upon injection, the Kybella® formula begins to break down fat in the area, reducing the appearance of your double chin. A Kybella® treatment is typically performed in less than 30 minutes.

CoolSculpting® is similarly both convenient and painless. During the treatment, the CoolSculpting® device will be placed directly on your skin. This may feel cold at first, but your body will quickly adjust and discomfort is minimal. While the time it takes for your CoolSculpting® procedure will vary depending on how many cycles you are having done, treatment time typically does not exceed 1 hour.

Is There Any Downtime After Double Chin Reduction?

Kybella® and other injectable treatments are popular cosmetic treatments because they require absolutely no downtime. Patients are able to return to work and other normal activities immediately after their appointment. In some cases, patients may experience swelling or redness due to the injections. However, these effects are only temporary and tend to fade within a day or two.

While patients may feel some soreness in the targeted areas for a day or two after their CoolSculpting® procedure, it does not require any downtime and patients can return to normal activities immediately after treatment.

When Will I Notice Results from Double Chin Reduction?

Patients will begin to notice results from their Kybella® treatment within a few weeks, experiencing a reduction in the size of their double chin. For optimal results, a series of three to four treatments is typically necessary. Once the fat cells beneath the chin are destroyed through treatment, they are no longer able to re-accumulate fat. As a result, patients can enjoy long-lasting results from their double chin reduction treatment.

It will take several weeks for you to see the results from your CoolSculpting® treatment because you must allow your body time to expel the damaged fat cells. Optimal results can typically be seen between 3 to 6 months after treatment. To see the most dramatic results, some patients opt to have multiple CoolSculpting® treatments.
